And in keeping with my Philly theme and convoluted book/film thoughts #GraceKelly played the role of a Philadelphia socialite in the film High Society, which was loosely based on real life socialite Helen Hope Montgomery Scott. (Original film was Philadelphia Story). Tagged book was written by her granddaughter, Janny Scott, about her father, Robert Montgomery Scott. Book was gifted to me from the wonderful @DivineDiana ❤️ High up on my #TBR

Cinfhen Oh, I forgot to mention Grace Kelly was a #PhillyGirl too!!! 2w
Cathythoughts A Philly girl! I didn‘t know that about Grace Kelly ♥️♥️♥️ 2w

BarbaraBB Hi Cindy, did you receive a parcel sent from the Netherlands by Bol.com? 2w
Cinfhen Not that I‘m aware of @BarbaraBB but mail here is ridiculous 🤨 2w
BarbaraBB Hmm.. I have send you something direct from the website where I bought it but now they say it should have been delivered - and there‘s no track & trace. Frustrating. I‘ll check it. 2w
Cinfhen You‘re too kind @BarbaraBB I‘m sorry the package is missing. I‘ll let you know when it turns up💗 2w
BarbaraBB Okay! And if I am losing patience I‘ll send it again! 2w
DivineDiana Love that photo of Robert Montgomery Scott! He looks like a movie star! 😘 Still high on my #TBR as well. 😉 (edited) 2w
Cinfhen 😘😘😘 @BarbaraBB 2w

If Captain Jack Sparrow and Will Turner are Pirates of the Caribbean, doesn't that make Elizabeth Swann a #CaribbeanQueen ?

#AbbaInAugust I‘m such a #PhillyGirl that the moment I saw the word #Eagle I thought of our hometown Super Bowl champs 🏆🏈🦅❤️ and Bradley Cooper is a hometown boy who starred in this quirky but loveable tale of starting over and learning to live again. And there‘s some really fun #Eagle moments 🦅🏈💚 #TheLinc 🙌🏻 #FlyEaglesFlyOnTheRoadToVictory

BarbaraBB I really liked this book! 13mo
Kalalalatja I have only seen the movie, but I really liked it! 13mo

Cinfhen It‘s culturally very American but the story of mental illness is VERY universal and so well done, I recommend book @Cathythoughts @TrishB and the movie was really enjoyable @eanderson @shadowspeak17 @Blueberry @Tanisha_A 💚🙌🏻 13mo
Mdargusch I love Bradley Cooper! 13mo

Circe | Madeline Miller
post image

It‘s hard to say which book I preferred because both of Madeline Miller‘s novels are brilliant works of storytelling 🙌🏻 The lores of Gods, Goddesses, Witches, Mortals, Warriors, Kings & Princes were breathtaking, sweeping,and incredibly engaging. I feel like I journeyed with all these divine beings and I‘m wholly satisfied. I will read EVERYTHING Madeline Miller writes and she‘s a local hometown #PhillyGirl 💕💕💕 5 GREEK stars✨✨✨✨✨

Tanisha_A What a photo! 13mo
CarolynM I was surprised by how much I liked this one. I haven't read The Song of Achilles yet, but I definitely will. 13mo

Heatherfeather Do I need to read the other one first? 13mo
Cinfhen No @Heatherfeather they are both stand-alone and both are excellent 13mo
Cinfhen Thanks 🙏🏻 Crete is really stunning and it‘s easy to take beautiful photos @Tanisha_A @Kalalalatja @Cathythoughts @mhillis @TrishB @candc320 @DivineDiana @britt_brooke @kspenmoll and the book was really fabulous 13mo
kspenmoll The book looked at Odysseus is such a different light than the epic hero in the Odyssey. At first I was uncomfortable, but then his behavior reminded me of someone with PSTD- almost like reading Go Tell a Watchman & seeing Atticus as a man of his times rather than the Gregory Peck version!!! (edited) 13mo
Cinfhen I thought Miller made every God & hero incredibly “human” with all their faults and deficiencies @kspenmoll 13mo
ephemeralwaltz Great review!! Can't wait to read this one! 13mo
emilyhaldi Wow!! You did it... I am officially stacking this 😉 13mo
Reviewsbylola Now that you‘ve already read this, I‘ll probably skip it. 😂 13mo
kspenmoll @Cinfhen Agree- gods & goddesses did have very human like emotions! 13mo
Centique Yay! I loved this too. MM is a #buynotborrow from now on for me 💕🌟 13mo

Silver Linings Playbook | Matthew Quick
post image

#Rocktober As a former #PhillyGirl and still a season ticket holder Eagles fan, how could I not choose this quirky story for #lithium. Pat Peoples, who has recently been released from a mental health facility being treated for bipolar disorder, is tested as he navigates family, a separation from his wife, and another frustrating season of Eagles football 🏈 Silver Linings does an excellent job portraying bipolar with honesty & humor. GO EAGLES 🦅

BarbaraBB Really liked this one! Perfect choice! 2y
