Where are all the #singleladies for your boy Mike? He needs to get over his ex but is letting his obsessive stalker tendencies get the best of him 😳 this book is nutty, but I'm into it!
Glad I have my boyfriend Khufu with me while I read 😻

Reviewsbylola Mani on point as always. Khufu is adorable. 2y

Bridget Jones's Diary | Helen Fielding
post image

#Aprella #CruelWorld #SingleLadies After my catch up trifecta of ?prompts, I'm just combining 2 today. (Busy week!)?Bridget Jones is the ultimate single lady in book & movie & she knew what a cruel world it was for a singleton to be surrounded by so many smug married couples. Luckily she had some great single 'ladies' as friends since it took a while for Mark Darcy to put a? on it even if he did say he liked her, "very much, just as you are."?

BethFishReads One the most fun P&P retellings 2y
Reviewsbylola Good pick!! I forgot about this one but it is perfect for this prompt. 2y

"Are you married?" Eleanor asked.
There was a little silence, and then Theodora laughed quickly and said, "No."

Although Jane Austen may have had a first love, she was the ultimate single lady.

No one quite writes about the #SingleLadies like Barbara Pym. Thank you to @BarbaraBB , whose post about Excellent Women reminded me that I need to move these other novels up my TBR!


BarbaraBB She is the master of spinster lit! Love the covers as well 💜 2y
saresmoore I love these covers AND the content. I want to read them all! 2y
Cinfhen I‘m giddy from the covers but pretty sure I‘d HATE the books on the inside 😜#KeepingItReal 2y

Aimeesue I'm an avowed Pymphomanic. It's made me cautious when eating cauliflower cheese, however. 😄 2y
Melissa_J OMG those covers are so much better than the ones on my Pym books! 2y
Mdargusch I need to read a book by her. Where do I start? @LeahBergen @BarbaraBB @saresmoore 2y
Tamra 😍😍 2y
Reviewsbylola Goddamn you @barbarabb are trying to murder my resolve. I feel like I need to buy these now. 😭😭 2y
saresmoore @Mdargusch I loved Jane & Prudence, but I think @shawnmooney is another good one to ask for a Pym recommendation. 2y
shawnmooney @Mdargusch Definitely start with her debut 2y
BarbaraBB @Reviewsbylola Hold on just a little longer and you can borrow them from your mother 😉😂! @Mdargusch 2y
Leftcoastzen So cool ! 2y
batsy Me too! I've only read Excellent Women thus far. 2y
emilyhaldi I have a couple of her books but they aren‘t THESE covers!! 😍😍 now I need these!! 2y
LeahBergen @BarbaraBB @saresmoore I think we may need to plan a Pym buddy read (you know, in like 4 months or so 😆). 2y
LeahBergen @Cinfhen Umm... you probably would! 😂 2y
LeahBergen @Aimeesue Oh, that cauliflower cheese. 😆 2y
LeahBergen @Melissa_J Aren‘t they appealing? 😍 2y
LeahBergen @Mdargusch Yes, I was going to recommend you start with the tagged book because @shawnmooney loved it so much. Many reviews say that Excellent Women is one of her best, though. 2y
LeahBergen @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi Book Depository is where you need to go for these. And they‘re cheap. 😂😂 Hey, don‘t look to me for help on saying “no” to books. 2y
LeahBergen @BarbaraBB 😂😂 They need to pool their family library, don‘t they? 2y
LeahBergen @batsy That‘s all I‘ve read thus far, too. 😬 2y
catebutler Love Pym! She‘s such a great author!! 2y
BarbaraBB @LeahBergen @saresmoore I‘m all in for that! 2y
BarbaraBB @LeahBergen @Mdargusch Excellent Women and Quartet in Autumn are on the list of 1001 books to read before you die. They mostly choose the right books by the right authors. 2y
erzascarletbookgasm Love these covers! 😍 I still need to read Pym after you all raved about her. Think I‘ll take up @shawnmooney ‘s recommendation to start with that. Gone is my resolve to temporarily stop buying books 💸 2y
doodlebug55 I loved Excellent Women! Will have to check these out :) 2y
saresmoore @LeahBergen @BarbaraBB I‘m always in for a buddy read of Pym—just say when! And let‘s include @batsy , too, because I know she‘s defenseless at resisting a good buddy read. 😬 2y
Mdargusch Thanks! @BarbaraBB 👍🏼 that‘s good to know. I‘m keeping my fingers crossed that I might find one of these at our library sale today. If not... Book Depository here I come! 2y
batsy @saresmoore Ooh yes I'm powerless in the face of a, Pym buddy read 😆😘 2y
BarbaraBB @batsy 😂😂 2y
Reviewsbylola I‘m trying SO HARD not to look. 🙈 2y
LeahBergen @catebutler yes! 💕 2y
LeahBergen @erzascarletbookgasm 😂😂 My book buying bans NEVER last very long. 2y
LeahBergen @doodlebug050 👏🏻👏🏻 2y
LeahBergen @saresmoore Yes, I just naturally assumed that @batsy would jump in. 😆 2y
LeahBergen @Mdargusch A library sale today?? Lucky duck! 2y
rubyslippersreads I have Jane and Prudence on my #litsyclassics list. These covers are 😍😍😍! 2y
raelaschoenherr I‘ve never read her but am hearing her name more often recently. Which should I read first? 2y

Trying to think of a book for #singleladies and looked at some books from the past weekend‘s church sale still in my car. There it was! Vow of celibacy.🙏🏻 @Librarybelle Found a substitute! #aprella

Reviewsbylola That‘s as single as you can get, as long as being married to God counts as being single. 😂 2y
Librarybelle Hooray! I think that looks like a very good substitute! 2y

Jane Addams And The Dream Of American Democracy | Jean Bethke Elshtain, Jean Elshtain
post image

Some #singleladies get stuff done.I admire Jane Addams in her efforts to improve the life of immigrants in Chicago.With a particular focus on education and recreation for women and girls.She founded Hull house , and while giving people skills they need to make it in The U.S. ,she held ethnic nights where people could gather to showcase dance and stories from their native countries.If you visit Chicago, there‘s a museum on S. Halsted. #aprella

Reviewsbylola I‘ve always been curious about Jane Addams! 2y
Mdargusch What a fascinating woman. 2y

The Woman Upstairs | Claire Messud
post image

“Don‘t ever get yourself stuck like this.” Advice from Nora‘s mother to her daughter about marriage. The protagonist is an angry frustrated single lady. Felt mixed about this book, it did lead to an interesting convo about likeability of characters vs enjoying a book and the difft standards for female characters. #aprella #singleladies (photo credit nyt book review).

Cinfhen Agreed, a very polarizing read and a very unlikable character ~ ending got a little 🙄😳but I thought it made for an interesting book (edited) 2y
Reviewsbylola Sounds intense! 2y
emilyhaldi I‘m intrigued!! 2y
Blaire @Cinfhen @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi I can‘t say I loved it, but I am glad I read it - if that makes sense. It was interesting and different and a perspective that is not often given voice in popular literature. Certainly had some very strong parts. 2y

Manhattan Memoir | Mary Cantwell
post image

Only one person on Litsy has ever posted about Mary Cantwell, so I‘m making her autobiographical trilogy a #recommendsday pick.

Cantwell is the perfect bridge between Edith Wharton‘s early 20th Century NYC and Candace Bushnell‘s late 20th Century NYC. Her memoir details what it was like navigating NYC during the mid-century as a member of the #singleladies club. She also travels through marriage, divorce, career and friendships.

rubyslippersreads These sound great. And those kitty paws! 😻😻😻 2y

Mdargusch I‘m stacking too! After reading The Summer Wives, this period fascinates me. 2y
Dogearedcopy Yes! I once compared Edith Wharton and Candace Bushnell and was met with blank stares! So glad someone else put them in a sentence together! 🙂 2y
LauraBeth @Dogearedcopy it is NOT blasphemy to have Edith and Candace in the same sentence! I definitely can connect the two. People need to be more like you and I. ❤️ 2y
