Mdargusch 😂. I love the diversity of spelling in English words. It‘s so crazy. 11mo
emilyhaldi I keep wanting to use the british spelling as well!! Especially right after I visited London and was feeling quite british 😆💁🏻‍♀️ 11mo
Reviewsbylola Hahaha I keep wanting to spell it this way. 11mo

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. 11mo
Mdargusch Great cover! 😁 11mo
gradcat I did not know there were so many books with this title—well done! 👍 11mo

emilyhaldi Love this quaint little cover ☺️ 11mo
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. 11mo
Melissa_J @gradcat me neither! Goodreads lists quite a few though. 11mo

The Winter Palace | Eva Stachniak

Varvara becomes a maid to the future Catherine the Great, where she‘s spotted and trained up as a ‘tongue‘, a spy, to report back any conversations, rumours or other goings-on within the household. I didn‘t get through the book, but haven‘t totally ruled out going back to finish it at some point. #rumourhasit #anglophileapril

Mdargusch Good choice. And I love that cover! You can tell something interesting is going on. 11mo
Reviewsbylola The cover and synopsis sound like Phillipa Gregory! 11mo
gradcat Nice! ✅ 11mo

#rumourhasit #anglophileapril
I‘m going with the singer 😁 the book doesn‘t get very good reviews!

Reviewsbylola This sounds like quite the book! Adele‘s sex compulsion reminds me a bit of the narrator in Tampa. Hopefully Adele‘s conquests are all of legal age. 😆 11mo
Mdargusch Hmmm. I‘m going with the singer too. This book would not be my cup of tea. ☕️ 11mo
squirrelbrain Yes, I heard it‘s a bit ‘odd‘ and more than a bit naughty! 😳 11mo

Cinfhen Clever!! I read this book as an ARC a few months ago...I don‘t remember much about it but I think I only gave it a so-so 11mo
TrishB @squirrelbrain yes there are lots of comments about it being ‘racy‘ on Amazon! 11mo
gradcat I sure do like the author, though...too bad this one didn‘t work for you guys. I rather liked 11mo
emilyhaldi Love the cover though ❣️ 11mo

American Pop: A Novel | Snowden Wright
post image

#rumourhasit that Montgomery “Monty” Forster May be gay, despite his beautiful wife and daughter. Monty has lofty political aspirations that could be derailed by his sexuality, but he and his father, family patriarch and head of a cola company, will pay off whoever they have to in order to get Monty ahead.

I‘ve only read on chapter so I‘m curious to see where this goes. #anglophileapril

Cinfhen I own this one too!! Maybe I‘ll start it as my next read 11mo
Cinfhen Yup!!! I‘m ready to go 🤗🤗🤗🤗 11mo

Mdargusch I thought this sounded really interesting. 11mo
Mdargusch Do you have the physical copy you can share? Or is it library? 11mo

#rumourhasit , we can read, what we want and there are all the information, we need in this world. Really? How fast books can disappear shows this memorial in Berlin. 🙄😫

Cinfhen That‘s a striking image 11mo
Mdargusch Wow! Very disturbing. 11mo

Lots of rumours flying about in this book.... even within the family nobody knows what‘s going on with the two Boleyn sisters and Henry VIII. And as for their brother George, what on earth is he up to?!


Cathythoughts I‘ve never read this writer... 🤔must have a go ! What‘s the best one Helen ? ( when you have a minute.. I know you have a busy weekend coming up 👍🏻😀 11mo
squirrelbrain Ha! I wish it was the weekend already...! Blummin‘ work! I‘ve only read 3 and I‘m on my 4th. I would say that The Other Boleyn Girl is actually the best I‘ve read so far, even though it‘s out of chronological order. 11mo
Lauraandherbooks Oh I can‘t wait to read it... I love this author!! 11mo

Reviewsbylola Loved this book!!! So good. 11mo
Cinfhen I need to read this other too @Cathythoughts 11mo
Cathythoughts Thanks 👍🏻👍🏻 11mo
Mdargusch Good one! This is one of my all time favorite books and got me started on my love for all things Tudor! 11mo
Mdargusch @Cathythoughts this is my absolute favorite by her. Her later books seemed too much on the romance side for me. 11mo

When Dimple Met Rishi | Sandhya Menon
post image

I'm a neglectful host, so this one is for two prompts. Started this one last night on #Libby while getting a couple things ready to ship out. #RumourHasIt that Rishi is going to marry Dimple. Unfortunately, Dimple wasn't in on the plan and things got off on the wrong foot. Will each one learn that while #Nobody'sPerfect, they just might be perfect enough for each other? #AdelesMayMashUp @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

I have this book, but can‘t find it!!

What happened to Greg and Tess? Rumors were swirling among their friends when they set out on their sailboat to celebrate their anniversary, but never return home. Secrets are revealed as all of their friends try to figure out what happened!

vkois88 Sounds like a good one!! 2y

Harriet the Spy | Louise Fitzhugh

#AdelesMayMashUp Day 10: Still the signature book for #RumourHasIt. Did you know that this is one of the most banned books because schools claimed it to be a “bad example for children” and for “teaching children to lie, spy, talk back, and curse.” For more banned books, Fats, one of the GB ladies, has done a round-up here: https://gatheringbooks.org/2013/09/28/raising-awareness-books-that-have-been-ban...

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Wow!!! I didn‘t know that!!! I love your posts!! 😘😘 2y
Mdargusch I did not know this! I loved this book growing up! Maybe that‘s why I‘m such a liar, curser, and spy now! 😂😂😂 (edited) 2y
vkois88 Say what?!? I didn't know that either!! I absolutely ADORED this book when I was little. Probably one of my most read books. In fact, I think I even had two copies 😊 2y
AmyG This is one of my most favorite childhood books. Banned? 😳 2y
emilyhaldi Hilarious! ❤️ Harriet 2y
