The only book I managed to read while on holiday. Love the cover (5 stars)but the book...not so much! It had some beautiful writing and incredible imagery but the story was messy, confusing & mostly unfulfilling. It just didn‘t work for me & I was super glad that it was a relatively short book. 2.5 stars. Took an awesome London street art tour and thought I‘d share a pic💜

Cinfhen Did u read this yet @GuiltyFeat ??? 11mo
TrishB Is the Bowie mural in Brixton on that tour? 11mo
Cinfhen No!!! We were in #Shoreditch @TrishB but I wish we went to Brixton!!! That mural was UH.MAY.ZING ( yes, I went down the Google rabbit hole) 11mo

TrishB Aww shame! It is amazing. We visited it not long after Bowie died, a moving experience. The house were he was born is near by too, so we visited that as well! 11mo
Cinfhen You‘ve given me an entire itinerary for my next trip @TrishB 😘😘#Bowie #Brixton #Liverpool #PennyLane #Daunts #BritishLibrary 11mo
TrishB That sounds pretty perfect 👌😘 11mo
LeahBergen I never manage to read a lot on holiday unless it‘s a mindless, beach-type vacation. One book is pretty impressive! 11mo
Reviewsbylola There‘s nothing sadder than a gorgeous cover housing a mediocre book. 11mo

Corduroy Mansions | Alexander McCall Smith
post image

This three-book in the Corduroy Mansions series tells the lives of the quirky and endearing characters living in the mansion and around the Pimlico neighbourhood. Almost everyone knows everyone who operates a business in the streets, and the ins and outs of the neighbourhood. Just as in #PennyLane .

BiblioLitten I really enjoy his writing but I haven't read these books. Should add it to #mounttbr. 😀 1y
Cinfhen Love this 💕great graphics 1y

Miroslav Sasek's bright, colourful illustrations of cities around the world are how I imagine the characters in #PennyLane. (Sadly, he did not illustrate Liverpool. An oversight on his part.)

Cinfhen So cool ! Such vibrant colors 1y
rabbitprincess @Cinfhen I like the effect of the newspapers in this picture, too 😊 1y
Cinfhen Yes, it‘s amazing 🙌🏻 1y

So for #pennylane I thought of this article in Oprah magazine about books that evoke various regions. This pic is from the Midwest section. I love to read books about the places I travel. #heyjune

Yes, I read Beatles comics, watched The Beatles cartoon, owned (and still have) Beatle dolls. The mid-60‘s were a crazy time. Great memories. #PennyLane #HeyJune

Samplergal Yes they were. 1y
Theshadedbuffalo My youngest, who is not yet 5, has been watching A Hard Days‘s Night for the past three days in a row. He has his invisible friends, four of them, and they are John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Funnily enough, Ringo is the baby. He can also recognize (most of the time) which one is the lead vocals on a particular track. We‘re a Beatles family over here. 😬 1y
Cinfhen That‘s hilarious @Theshadedbuffalo 😂😂🙌🏻 1y
Cinfhen I can‘t believe you still have EVERYTHING,Suzze 😍that‘s awesome 1y
Suzze @Theshadedbuffalo That‘s fab 😁! 1y

I'm with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie | Pamela Des Barres, Dave Navarro
post image

From the TBR: Kate Hudson used Des Barres' memoirs as a source of inspiration before playing #PennyLane in Cameron Crowe's semi-autobiographical film Almost Famous (although the character was based off a different group of girls Crowe met while working as a teenaged music journalist for Rolling Stone).

#HeyJune @GypsyKat @Cinfhen

(PS: Cindy, if you're looking for co-hosts for any upcoming months, I'd love to co-host a Canadian themed month!)

Cinfhen Absolutely @TheKidUpstairs but I think the next guest spot available isn‘t until 2019! I‘ll let you know which month but it‘s my pleasure 🤘🏼 (edited) 1y
Cinfhen Also, I LOVED this movie 1y
TiredLibrarian Oh, this was a fun read! Kinda trashy and gossipy, but Pamela DesBarres has such a heart of gold that it's done kindly. 1y
