#thisonesforthegirls who have ever been mansplained to! #lilthjuly @Cinfhen @KarenUK

I really enjoyed your prompts, and I‘m sorry I didn‘t post more!

And I‘m sorry I‘ve been posting so much today. I have a cold and I‘m bored. 🤣🤧

LauraJ Every damn day this happens! 4y
Megabooks @LauraJ my dad, the Republican, tried to mansplain the detention centers (concentration camps, IMO) at the southern border to me today. 🙄🙄🤬 4y
Megabooks @LauraJ I also told him how I was thinking of volunteering for Amy McGrath, and he tried to say she couldn‘t possibly be running against Mitch. 4y

LauraJ @Megabooks Oh, you poor thing! Mitch is going down! 4y
Scochrane26 @Megabooks i met McGrath last yr & found out that my county has a lot more dems than I thought. Sometimes I feel like the only one. I hope she can bring him down. 4y
Megabooks @Scochrane26 You live in the 6th district, right? I‘m over in the 2nd, but I‘m sure she needs organizers everywhere in Kentucky. I think she‘s very impressive on paper and in speeches. I‘d love to help get out all those dems and independents who have lost hope in the face of Mitch. 👍🏻 4y
Megabooks @LauraJ Mitch is going down! I‘m determined to have our first democratic senator since Wendell Ford! 4y
Scochrane26 @Megabooks yes, I‘m in 6th but not in lex, so my county is usually red. My parents have been more republican in recent yrs, my sis & I more dem. I really hope to get out several of our Ky leaders, including our horrific governor. 4y
Megabooks @Scochrane26 🤬 Bevin 🙄 Can‘t stand that 🤬. He needs to GO! 4y
Cinfhen Enjoyed seeing your posts on the times when u could join in ♥️ 4y

While Googling “girl books” this site popped up & I thought it was a great idea. AMightyGirl.com has over 3000 books (plus movies, toys, & music) with empowering female characters that support, empower & celebrate girls. The 📚pictured are some from the ‘Mighty Girls & Women‘ tab. #ThisOnesForTheGirls 👩🏻‍💻⛹🏽‍♀️👩🏼‍✈️🏌🏻‍♀️👩🏾‍🚒👩🏿‍✈️

Big mahalos to @Cinfhen & @KarenUK for a month of great musical prompts.💕🌺😚💕

KarenUK Awesome! 💪💄💕😊 4y

Sarong Party Girls: A Novel | Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan
post image

This must be a re-release, at least in the UK, as I received it as an ARC from #readersfirst.

The book is written in Singlish, which gives it a cutesy feel, in total juxtaposition to the seedy, grubby lives of Jazzy and her girlfriends, who are all getting a bit too old to snare an ang moh (western expat) husband!

I couldn‘t work out if I hated or felt sorry for Jazzy and felt the ending was a bit rushed, but still a good pick!

squirrelbrain Also fits #lilithjuly #thisonesforthegirls, even if Jazzy does treat her girl gang like dirt! 😁 @KarenUK @Cinfhen Thanks for the fun this month! 😘 4y
squirrelbrain Also #uglylocationchallenge @Clwojick - the fabulous view from my office window! 🤣 4y

TrishB Your view 😂😂 hope you‘re ok and free from flooding!! 4y
squirrelbrain @TrishB we‘re OK here, thanks for asking though! Had a lot of rain but the worst was about 30 miles north of us. It was bad in the NorthWest too though wasn‘t it? 4y
TrishB We‘re ok here - further out Cheshire was was bad. No such thing as climate change 🤷‍♀️ 4y

gradcat @KarenUK & @Cinfhen I‘m piggybacking here to say thanks for a fantastic #LilithJuly ... I‘ve been a bit remiss about posting, but I never want to forget to thank our lovely hosts. ♥️😘😊 4y
KarenUK @gradcat Thank you! I really had a lot of fun co-hosting! 😊💕 4y
Cinfhen Thanks so much @gradcat 😘I‘ve been traveling and not really reading or Litsying much. So I feel a little disconnected 3y
gradcat @Cinfhen I knew you were traveling...and I think I can say for myself & everyone else, “We MISS you!” ♥️ But I really hope you are enjoying the travel. Is your husband feeling better? (edited) 3y
