Gezemice Great choice! I read it last year and it was amazing. And I agree on President Snow. So deliciously evil. (edited) 2y

#fiercefeb #imeverywoman here‘s a collection from my tbr . An eclectic mix of women writers, hours of great reading, I hope! 🐉

398.2 I read Still Alice. The only problem it got me thinking that “oh no, I forget things like that all the time. Should I be worried?!” 😳 ( I am 29) lol It‘s a good book. 2y
Bklover @398.2 I‘m 58, and reading Still Alice put me in a complete panic. I still get jittery just thinking about it!😳 2y
batsy Sweet selection! I Capture the Castle is just wonderful :) 2y

Dragon Thanks @398.2 the movie was good so I‘m betting the book is even better. I think reading is probably good for the brain. 😀🐉 2y
Dragon Thanks @Bklover I can see I‘m going to have to do puzzles and improve my memory before I read Still Alice 😀👍 2y
Dragon Thanks @batsy good to hear , it was a total #blameitonLitsy purchase, I‘m not even sure I know what it‘s about. Oh no, I better go read the blurb and start on my memory exercises 😀🐉 2y
Cinfhen Nice assortment of book titles...I'm always wondering if I should buy/read/add 2y
Dragon Thanks @Cinfhen I‘m just reading a blurb on the I Capture the Castle cover by Erica Jong “ A delicious, compulsively readable novel about young love and it‘s vicissitudes.What fun!” Sounds good. 2y
Lindy @Dragon @Cinfhen @batsy I‘m in a YA book club that‘s been meeting for more than two decades. When we did a poll of which book out of all our discussions was best beloved, the one with the most votes was I Capture the Castle. I really like it too, but my favourite from that book group is (edited) 2y
Dragon Thanks @Lindy I‘ve been looking at my copy but the type seems so small. Obviously I‘ve been reading too many ebooks or I need new glasses 😂 I‘m going to watch for Skellig and the booksales this year. Thanks for the recommendation 😀🐉 2y
readinginthedark Still Alice was so good! 😭❤️ There are a few others here on my TBR, as well! 2y
Dragon Thanks @readinginthedark Still Alice gets a lot of Litten love 😀👍🐉 2y
readinginthedark Good! I think it‘s the best representation of Early Onset Alzheimer‘s that I‘ve seen in a book. It doesn‘t get a lot of attention, and Genova really did her homework. The love is deserved! 👍🏻 2y

#fiercefeb #imeverywoman My current read from this amazing and inspiring woman..... I‘m reading this for #booked18 #bodypositivememoirornovel ... I tore a disc in my back a few years ago and exercising became very challenging... I have been afraid to go back to yoga, but this wonderful book has inspired me to be kind to myself, embrace my limitations and start a home practice without judgement.... day 4 and feeling good!

Reecaspieces Yoga is a mainstay for me...I hurt my shoulder a few weeks ago and I am missing it terribly. Enjoy your practice. There are quiet a few good ones on you tube. Ali kaminova, heart alchemy, Leslie fightmaster. Just to name a few. 2y
batsy ❤️ 2y
Cinfhen That's awesome and these photos are inspiring!!! 😇🙏🏻love this❣️ 2y
KarenUK @Reecaspieces Thank you! I'll definitely go check these out! 2y
GlassAsDiamonds I really ought to follow your lead and haul my a** back to yoga....!! 😊😊😊 2y

#imeverywoman #fiercefeb great respect for teacher Azar Nafisi, bold and fierce, she secretly met with 7 of her most committed female students to read banned western literature, every Thursday. All the while Islamic morality squads carried out arbitrary raids across Tehran. Truly inspiring ❤️

batsy Great pick! This was a good read. 2y
DeborahSmall @batsy it was great 2y
Dragon I found this book so interesting and terrifying. How quickly this author ‘s country changed from women holding jobs at universities to women being forced out of everything. 2y

#FierceFeb #ImEveryWoman Although I have very little in common with Gabrielle Union in most areas, she is honest & laid back with a healthy dose of sarcasm that makes her relatable to a wide variety of audiences & makes her seem like the kind of 'every woman' you could easily hang out with over a glass of wine (or cup of tea). I'm only about four chapters in but I'm enjoying her memoir so far--especially with her reading it. 📚👍

batsy Sounds good, I've seen a lot of love for this on Litsy :) 2y
Cinfhen Waiting for my #OverDrive copy! She does seem very likeable ❤️ 2y
UrsulaMonarch What a lovely blurb!! 2y
DebinHawaii @batsy It's a definite #blameitonlitsy pick! 👍 @Cinfhen I was happy when my Overdrive copy was available--hope yours is soon! 🤗 @UrsulaMonarch Thank you! 😀 2y

"... not a wince of fear or trepidation, and no youngster just let loose from school could have been more merry and light-hearted."
#FierceFeb #imEveryWoman puts on a brave front and does not shy away from challenges

Unfamiliar with sea voyages did not stop Nellie Bly from travelling around the world in a bid to beat Fogg's fictional record.
