Alternate Side: A Novel | Anna Quindlen
post image

The rumor is that Nora Nolan is going to leave her position as the Director of the Jewelry Museum in Manhattan, and work for her husband‘s powerful boss. Causes lots of friction in the marriage. #rumorhasit #anglophileapril

Reviewsbylola I really enjoyed the two Anna Quindlen books I‘ve read! 6mo
DivineDiana @Reviewsbylola Which ones did you read? 6mo
emilyhaldi Love Anna Quindlen but somehow haven‘t heard of this one!! 6mo

(Day 2 - #RumorHasIt)

For some reason, this made me think of some of the most outrageous authorial hoaxes ever perpetrated on the reading public. Finally, after considering several (The Hitler Diaries, anyone?), I landed on the weird, winding tale of J. T. (for Terminator) Leroy, aka Laura Albert. Humph. Whatever, for what it‘s worth.... (shrugs shoulders).

Cinfhen I never knew that!!! #LiveAndLearn 6mo
Mdargusch Interesting! 🤔 6mo
emilyhaldi I need to spend some time googling this situation! 6mo
Reviewsbylola Wow, this is fascinating. 6mo
gradcat @Cinfhen @Mdargusch @emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola It is a very interesting story...you guys should check it out. Plus, there are a couple (maybe more?) documentaries out there that cover this subject. It‘s such a strange story, too! 6mo

All I could think of for #rumorhasit was Rumer Willis! 😁🤷‍♀️
@Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola @Cinfhen @emilyhaldi

Reviewsbylola Good one! 6mo
Mdargusch Ha! Works for me! 6mo
gradcat Smart choice! Doh!! I wish I had thought of her! 6mo
Cinfhen She‘s such a beautiful combo of her parents but man, do I see young Demi Moore in her eyes!!! 6mo
emilyhaldi Kind of a cool name, actually 🤔 6mo

Rumor Has It | Jill Mansell

Turns out there are quite a few books which have #RumorHasIt or #RumourHasIt as the title. Pictured is one of the many.


Reviewsbylola I‘ve heard of this author but never read her. 6mo
Mdargusch Great cover! 😁 6mo
gradcat I did not know there were so many books with this title—well done! 👍 6mo

emilyhaldi Love this quaint little cover ☺️ 6mo
Melissa_J @Reviewsbylola same here. I‘m not sure if she‘s considered chick lit or not, and I tend to stay away from that genre. 6mo
Melissa_J @gradcat me neither! Goodreads lists quite a few though. 6mo

AlaMich I‘m such a nerd that every time I see the name Rumer, I remember that that‘s what Bruce Willis and Demi Moore named their daughter. My memory for useless trivia is boundless! 🤓 6mo

#rumorhasit that Mary had something to do with Lord Darnley's murder. After reading this book I'm leaning towards her being innocent. #AnglophileApril @Cinfhen @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi @Mdargusch

TrishB It‘s another one of those historical conundrums!! I believe she‘s guilty- Weir and I don‘t agree on a lot of historical questions 😁 6mo
Birdsong28 @trishb @jenniferw88 Have you read John Guy My heart is my own? From reading his account of this episode I think he thinks she's guilty. I'm not sure myself 📚📖 6mo
jenniferw88 @Birdsong28 no, but I am definitely interested in reading other perspectives... #stacked! 6mo

Mdargusch So many rumors in that Tudor family! 6mo
rretzler I‘ve always been fascinated by Mary and Elizabeth and that period. 6mo
TrishB I‘ve read the Guy one. I also recommend this one , it‘s a great discussion point! 6mo
Birdsong28 @jenniferw88 Just be careful when buying it as you can get it with the yellow cover (the pic that is on here) or the movie cover and it just says Mary Queen of Scots on the front but it is the same book. My version is the yellow cover as I have had it a few years but only getting round to reading it properly 😂 as I used it for my Tudor History A level but only used certain sections. 6mo
Birdsong28 @TrishB It certainly is! I studied this time period of Mary's life for my Tudor History A level case study. That book you suggested is a good book as well. 😁📚📖 6mo
Cinfhen I love all the political intrigue 6mo

Asking For It | Louise O'Neill
post image

When Emma O‘Donovan wakes up on her porch, naked and sunburned, #RumorHasIt she acted like a s**t and had sex at a party, while letting the guys take pictures of her. In reality, Emma was taken advantage of, raped, and humiliated, and this book is a look at how a girl reacts to such a treatment.


Cinfhen Sounds like such a hard read!! 6mo
Reviewsbylola Wow, so awful. Sounds like this book packs a punch. 6mo
ShyBookOwl This sounds like an important and powerful read... but that cover throws me 🤔 6mo
See All 12 Comments
Mdargusch Wow! Sounds devastating! Reminds me of that same type of thing that happened in Steubenville, Ohio awhile back. 6mo
ElishaLovesBooks Wow, that sounds intense! 6mo
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen @Reviewsbylola @ElishaLovesBooks it is tough, heart breaking, and it made me soooo angry! But, now with some professional insight into the subject as well, everything in the book is just way too common. It is sad, just sad... @ShyBookOwl don‘t let the cover scare you! The MC is described as a very popular, kinda mean girl type, which might explain the cover. Also, O‘Neill‘s other book also had a Barbie on the cover 6mo
ShyBookOwl @Kalalalatja interesting. Thanks! 6mo
Kalalalatja @Mdargusch it actually does have a lot of similarities to the Steubenville case, as far as I remember. Definitely a lot of victim blaming, a lot of shame and self blame, and a bit of loss of faith in humanity, as a reader 😔 6mo
Mdargusch I wonder if that incident motivated this author then? 6mo
Kalalalatja @Mdargusch I just found this article, where she, among others, mentions Steubenville as an inspiration https://www.google.dk/amp/s/www.thejournal.ie/louise-oneill-asking-for-it-interv... 6mo
emilyhaldi 😕 6mo
gradcat Again, another great choice. 6mo
