What Was I Thinking?: 58 Bad Boyfriend Stories | Barbara Davilman, Liz Dubelman

So umm... I've arranged all the random stacks in my bedroom into one unread stack... said stack is approximately 5' tall. The shorter stack of MG books is taller than my almost 4 year old nephew. I may be requesting back up...

**EDIT - Mt. TBR became the Leaning Tower of Syllables so it had to be broken down. I can only partially open the closet now...

#abbainaugust #SOS

If anyone needed to send an #SOS it was Pi.

I loved this book. I think it helped that I had heard nothing about it before I read it, so I went in clear of any expectations and was completely mesmerised. I love books that twist things (relationships, events etc) and make you look at them askew - if it had been told literally, I don‘t think I would have enjoyed it half as much.

Cinfhen Same!!! I LOVED this book and didn‘t know what was coming😜much prefer book to film 4y
Centique @Cinfhen me too, book wins for sure! And I totally didn‘t predict it! 😘😘 4y
Cathythoughts Never read... but loved the movie ❤️ 4y

emilyhaldi I hasn't seen the film OR read the book. Is it worth all the hype?! 4y
JillR This has been lurking on my tbr for a loooooong time 😳 - thank you for reminding me about it! I might bump it up the list... 4y
Centique What do you think @Cinfhen ? Would @emilyhaldi like it? 4y
Aseleener Saw the movie a long time ago not realizing it was a book. Then really wished I had read the book first. 🙁 I've been debating reading the book. Not sure it will be as good since I know the twist now. 4y
Reviewsbylola Good one! 🐅 4y
Mdargusch I have never read this either. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 4y
Cinfhen Hmmmmm, Jo🤔🤔I think @emilyhaldi would like this one!!! 4y
Centique @JillR yay! Stay clear of spoilers if you can! 4y
Centique @Aseleener I think you‘re right unfortunately 😬 Still good, but the not knowing made it great. 4y
Meredith3 I‘ve never read this myself but I‘ve heard great things! 👍🏻 4y

And the Sea Will Tell | Vincent Bugliosi

I started this book probably 10 years ago and never finished it, but I have a feeling I should give it another go. Two couples stranded on an island and one couple ends up dead. Very mysterious! And Vince B is a bad ass MOFO.
So yeah #SOS #ABBAinAugust

Reviewsbylola Our boy Vinny was such a trail blazer! I‘m actually reading a book about the Manson fam right now. I didn‘t realize VB was only 35 when he was assigned to the Tate/LaBianca murders. 4y
Reviewsbylola And definitely give this one another shot. It‘s phenomenal imo. 4y
Meredith3 @Reviewsbylola holy cow that is so young !!! 4y

The Titanic is the most memorable of #SOS stories ⚓️ and this book @Mdargusch found at a recent antique sale recounts the "thrilling" stories of the survivors.

Inside I found this newspaper article that appears to be from 1985 when the ship was finally discovered on the ocean floor. How prudent that Bertha Wren (written in the inside page) chose to keep the news clipping inside this book ?


Meredith3 Yessss Jack Dawson 💘 4y
CoverToCoverGirl That‘s a fantastic find.. soo jealous ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 4y

This was the book that started off my minor Titanic obsession (many years ago 😄).

LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads Oh oh! As a fellow obsessive, I think you need it! 😂😂 It‘s from 1976 and heavily, wonderfully illustrated with photos. 4y

ferskner Me too! 4y
Reviewsbylola I have an obsession with the Titanic too. This looks like an amazing edition. 4y
emilyhaldi So cool. I bet you have a whole shelf of Titanic books in that library!! 😍 4y
Mdargusch Such a good one! 4y
Cinfhen It‘s a topic worthy of obsessing over 💙💚 4y
Itchyfeetreader Yes mine too. I had a revised version full of great photos that I leant to someone and never got back. I can see it now - a pale blue hardback. What do you know? I am still quite angry about it! 4y
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen I just ordered a copy from ABE. 😊 #blameitonlitsy 4y
LeahBergen @Quirkybookworm Thank you! 🙂 4y
LeahBergen @ferskner 👏🏻👏🏻 4y
LeahBergen @Reviewsbylola It‘s a good one. 👍🏻 4y
LeahBergen @emilyhaldi Actually, I don‘t! I‘m always “culling the collection” 😆 and I only have a couple now. 4y
LeahBergen @Mdargusch Yes! 👍🏻 4y
LeahBergen @Cinfhen I think so, too! 4y
LeahBergen @Itchyfeetreader Isn‘t that always the way? 😂 I‘m still miffed over a book I leant about 30 years ago and never got back. 4y
shawnmooney Do you know my family connection to the Titanic? 4y
LeahBergen @shawnmooney NO! Do tell! 4y

#AbbaInAugust Every since @emilyhaldi posted this book I‘ve been meaning to read it🤓As the Titanic struck an iceberg they sent out 8 emergency flairs hoping another ship would respond #SOS The SS California recognized the signs but did not comply. This is a historical imagining of what occurred.

emilyhaldi Gosh! And I still haven't read it!! 😆 but thanks for reminding me... It does sound good 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 4y
TrishB Sounds interesting 👍🏻 4y
Literary_Siren I enjoyed this book. Though it pissed me off. Such wonton disregard for life. 😡 4y

Reviewsbylola Good pick!! I think I gave this book five stars! 🚢 4y
arubabookwoman The California ended its life by sinking off the coast of Aruba. That end of the island now has a lighthouse called the California lighthouse. This was something I always heard while growing up. Not sure if it‘s true. 4y
CouronneDhiver I loved this book! 😊😊😊 4y
Cinfhen So glad you guys recommend this book @Reviewsbylola @CouronneDhiver @Literary_Siren I‘m gonna look for it next time I place a #BookOutlet order 😍 and what an interesting fact @arubabookwoman I‘m sure there‘s some karma in there??!?!!! 4y
Rissreads This book sounds so interesting! 4y
