#SoaringScores #TheBlueDress #Poldark #AnneDudley


I love this show; sad it‘s the last season. The stakes are high and the characters make decisions that go from bad to worse. There‘s a light at the end of the tunnel; love ❤️

Chrissyreadit I love Poldark! But I‘m only on season 2. 1mo
CrowCAH @Chrissyreadit woohoo 🎉 you can binge watch and catch up! Don‘t worry, I won‘t spoil anything. 1mo
Chrissyreadit @CrowCAH I‘m a weirdo who actively seeks spoilers 😂! I can‘t watch something if I think it will have an unhappy ending or resolution... 1mo

My #booksale #bookhaul in all it‘s glory... @SquidgetsRoom it wouldn‘t have been possible without you, thanks 😂😉

I‘ve never read Georgette Heyer before so I thought I‘d give her a try and as an added bonus I randomly managed to select the very first book she had published! Super excited about scoring the rest of the #Poldark series.

DivineDiana Great haul! And I love that you found Georgette Heyer‘s first book! 6mo
Dragon Nice haul! 👍 6mo
Melissa_J I‘d say that‘s a pretty good haul 😊 6mo

CoverToCoverGirl @DivineDiana Are you a fan of Heyer's writing? She's totally a #BlameItOnLitsy pick for me! 6mo
DivineDiana No, but I too am curious. 🙂#blameitonlitsy 6mo
raelaschoenherr I LOVE Heyer. That one‘s not my fave of hers, but hopefully you enjoy it! 6mo

OMG! I found the rest of the #Poldark series at a local yearly #booksale. The five #stacked are all the ones I was missing — insert book dance here — now I‘ll be able binge the whole series. 😊 Not shown are the two bags I have that are already full. I know, I know, I really am trying to restrain myself but come on there are just sooo many books! Thank you @SquidgetsRoom for bringing this to my attention or I would have missed it!

Took a long lunch so I could finish and be able to donate to the library when in town tomorrow. A friend gave me the complete series. I am determined to get them off my shelves by the end of the year. It really is just one very long soap opera. I'm finally past where the show is. Makes for more interesting reading. Last few pages were particularly enthralling.

What I‘m Reading:
For my #yearsofmylife read: #BridgeOvertheRiverKwai; #ExcellentWomen (a reread); #EastofEden (a reread), all published in 1952. On my Kindle, #City by Clifford Simak, also published in 1952 was a DNF. Also on Kindle I‘m reading the next #Poldark. #Sorry is for the traveling book club markup. I use Libby on my iPad, and there I‘m reading #TheAnimalGazer. #TerminalBeach is just because. Anyone else read by multiples?

Leftcoastzen Cool idea ! I am going to look into my birth year selections.#TBRmountain 1y
arubabookwoman @Leftcoasten I started in January with the year I was born 1950. So far I‘ve cleared the #TBRMountain of books published in 1950 and 1951. Hope to finish ‘52 in July and move on to ‘53. The goal is to finish before I die, but somehow that seems unlikely. 🤩 I can always dream! 1y
SledgeReader Woohoo! Love to see #ExcellentWomen getting some love!! 1y

Can you come up with not-so-heavy books, more uplifting or positive than I usually read. Still want to have a solid story, no harlequins or mindless reads, if you catch my drift. Everything I want to read is so heavy nonfiction, murders, world going to hell kind of books, therefore I need help!

AshleyHoss820 When I need a brain break, I usually go with the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich or some sweeping epic, like How Green Was My Valley or The Thorn Birds. 😊 2y
rubyslippersreads ❤️❤️❤️ How Green Was My Valley and would also recommend 2y

knittedgnome These are a fun light read! The base of True Blood but so very different than the show. 2y
Lisaw13 I just finished this one and really enjoyed it 2y
GlassAsDiamonds If non-fiction, you could try any of Gretchen Rubin‘s or Amy Krouse Rosenthal‘s Textbook or Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life. Victoria Finlay‘s Colour And Travels through the Jewelry Box are also lovely non-fiction. 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @Lisaw13 me too in the end but I only made it past Chapter 5 because of the Buddy Read.... otherwise I would have slapped Monty and thrown the book out the window! 2y
Lisaw13 @GlassAsDiamonds Monty could get annoying then I remembered he was 18 and I did find him endearing 2y
arubabookwoman Didn‘t think I would like a Viking book, but #TheLongShips is great and v. funny. Also loved #LondonBelongsToMe, #ThatOldAceInTheHole, and the #Poldark series is v. good. 2y
oOArankaOo Still about murder, but the Father Brown stories are also pretty lighthearted! 2y
Aimeesue Or anything Terry Pratchett. Don't start at the beginning of the Discworld series, though, because those aren't his best, and you don't really need to read the whole series in order anyway. The witches books are fabulous, and Word Sisters is one of his best. If you like mysteries or police procedural steps, any of his City Watch books are great. 2y
BookishMe Every chapter was hoot with 2y
BookishMe A Gentleman in Moscow (my fave for this year) & Storied Life of A J Fikry is so rereadable ;D Alexander Mccall Smith and this is whimsically hilarious hope you find that right book for now! 2y
BookishMe AMS *is my favorite writer 2y
Tove_Reads @bookishme Thanks! Need to look into them. Have read AMS. (edited) 2y
Tove_Reads @AshleyHoss820 Read them all! 😃 2y
Tove_Reads @Aimeesue will check them out! 2y

Tove_Reads @knittedgnome Never heard, thanks! 2y
Tove_Reads @Lisaw13 Cool, thanks! 2y
Tove_Reads @GlassAsDiamonds Thanks! Need to check them out! 2y
Tove_Reads @arubabookwoman Wow! I‘ll check them out! 2y
Tove_Reads @Soubhiville High in my TBR 🙂 2y
Tove_Reads @oOArankaOo Never read them, maybe it‘s time... 🙂 2y
batsy I sound like a broken record everytime someone wants to read a book like this, but my go-to is this one 2y
Aimeesue @Tove_Reads I'm not a reader of fantasy novels, really, but Pratchett is sort of beyond that. More satire + humanism + moral dilemmas + humour. Pratchett's what I reach for when I'm in a reading slump or need a laugh. Great palate cleansers! (edited) 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @Lisaw13 true, but then I also found 18 slightly unlikely for the character & felt like he‘d been aged down to get it into YA...? 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @Tove_Reads 😊😊😊😊 I like non-fiction but have a really low creepy/ bleak threshold !! 😊😊😊 2y
Tove_Reads @Aimeesue Never read his books, because fantasy, but apparent they‘re not that far out there then?! 2y
Tove_Reads @batsy Will have to check it out, thanks! 2y
Aimeesue @Tove_Reads There are certainly a lot of fantastic *elements*, like witches, and wizards (bumbling, ineffective ones, basically) and trolls, but it's really used satirically, to reflect on human foibles in a flat out funny way. Pratchett and Gaiman are pretty much the only "fantasy" authors I read, because they both have a foot solidly in the human. 2y
Chrissyreadit @Tove_Reads Do you like historical fiction? I like Susannah Kearsley - one of my favs is The Winter Sea. For lighter, I just read Fangirl, and although not completely light I loved Eleanor and Park- both by Rainbow Rowell. I like Sara Addison Allen for light also - some magical realism. And if you are interested in American History nonfiction, Women‘s Diaries of the Westward Journey was good. I loved The Color of Water by James McBride. 2y
Tove_Reads @Chrissyreadit Historical fiction is one of my fave genres. Magical realism is my least fave. Thanks, will check them out! 2y
