I was away for the past few days for an out of town family wedding and got back just recently so catching up!

A trip to Florence ushers in #SeasonsOfLove for Lucy, also prompting a season of self-discovery.

Heathcliff & Cathy would both qualify for this one.

A tense, subversive, and heartaching read dealing with #WhoLivesWhoDies in a home invasion.

readordierachel Great choices! 6mo
Cinfhen Soooo good!!! Love these choices 6mo
GlassAsDiamonds 😂😂😂 I particularly love the Wuthering Heights tag, that is brilliant! (Also, you know you live in India when your phone wants to auto correct “tag” to “Taj” 😂😂😂). 6mo

Tanisha_A Yay, you are back! 😃 6mo
rohit-sawant @GlassAsDiamonds Hahaha, I've had that happen as well! 6mo
rohit-sawant Thanks, @Tanisha_A! 😀 🙌🏽 6mo
vivastory Haven't read Forster, but the other 2 are among the best I read last year. Fantastic choices & so glad you're joining the photo challenge! 6mo
Tanisha_A Listen, do you know anyone at Penguin Random House India office? 6mo
rohit-sawant @Tanisha_A I wish I could say I did, but unfortunately no. The only association I have with Penguin India is a badly written collection of stories I submitted to them years ago when I was a total noobe. 🙈 Needless to say I didn't hear back. 6mo
rohit-sawant @vivastory Of course! Loving the prompts. And I think you'll dig A Room with a View. I was really delighted knowing you liked Wuthering Heights, as well! It's one of those polarizing reads where people either love it or want to pitch it out a window. 6mo
Tanisha_A @rohit-sawant Ah okay. I really want to work with their operations team! Let me see if I could find something out. 6mo
rohit-sawant @Tanisha_A Oo, that sounds exciting! In case you haven't, you could check out their site and LinkedIn page for listings. Hope things work out for you! 🤞🏼 6mo
Tanisha_A @rohit-sawant Yes, been checking LinkedIn. Will write an email too. By the way, I may visit Bombay in Feb, would love to meet you too! Will keep you posted. 6mo
rohit-sawant @Tanisha_A Oh cool, and likewise! Do let me know later. And hope you get a positive response to the email! 6mo
Tanisha_A @rohit-sawant Eee, yep! Thank you! 😃 6mo

@Cinfhen @vivastory

BarbaraBB @merelybookish It‘s so good, you‘ll love it. 7mo
Cinfhen One of the best true crime books ever!! Read it @merelybookish @readordierachel 7mo
vivastory I agree with @BarbaraBB & @Cinfhen It's incredible. 7mo
LeahBergen It made me a Capote fan. 👍🏻 7mo
Cathythoughts I reread this one last year ... one of my favorite books 7mo
batsy Count me in as one of the few who have yet to read it 😉 7mo
readordierachel @BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @vivastory @LeahBergen @Cathythoughts I can't ignore all this glowing praise!! I will definitely read it this year. 7mo
readordierachel @merelybookish @batsy If you're interested in a low-key buddy read at some point this year lemme know 😉 7mo
batsy I would love to! 🙂 Anytime from April onward is good for me, but should the mood strike you before that... Feel free to give me a shout 😁 @merelybookish 7mo
merelybookish @batsy @readordierachel Yes, I'm game! Hard to argue against all those raves! April onward also works for me. I'm already feeling a bit over-committed before then! 7mo
readordierachel @merelybookish @batsy Yay! Let's shoot for April or May then. We can play it by ear 😀 7mo
readordierachel @batsy @merelybookish Are you ladies still interested in a buddy read of this? I'm leaning toward May or June. 4mo
merelybookish @readordierachel @batsy Sure I'm game! Either works! 4mo
batsy Yes, I sure am! And either month works for me too. @merelybookish 4mo
readordierachel @batsy @merelybookish Wonderful! Let's make it June then. #coldblooded 🙂 4mo
merelybookish 👍👍🗡️ 4mo
readordierachel @merelybookish @batsy I totally spaced on this! 🙈 I'm ready whenever y'all are, if you're still down. 2mo
merelybookish @readordierachel No need to apologise. I also spaced. I'd still like to read it but may need to bump to July. 2mo
readordierachel @merelybookish @batsy works for me. I'm totally flexible. 2mo
batsy @readordierachel @merelybookish No worries at all! It completely slipped my mind, as well. I'm very ok with July 🙂 2mo

At Auschwitz, Mengele decided #wholiveswhodies and the author of this book found himself working in the #shadow of the Angel of Death himself.

I‘m sure someone else has used this series for today‘s prompt, but it was the first thing that popped into my head #WhoLivesWhoDies


vivastory Excellent choice & I think you are the first one to use it 👍 7mo
kelli7990 I‘m reading the first book right now and I‘m going to be reading the rest of the series this year. I‘ve heard a lot about the tv show and the books. I just wanted to read the series and see if it‘s as good as people have said it is. I‘ve read the first chapter in the first book and I‘m interested to see what happens next. 7mo
Melissa_J @kelli7990 I hope you enjoy it. I don‘t watch the TV show myself, and am getting a little impatient for the final two books to be published. 7mo

#MusicalNewYear #WhoLivesWhoDies well, somebody is most likely going to die in a Lee Child novel.Not Jack Reacher though. These are the first six,order is really, Killing,Die,Tripwire,Running,Echo,Without.

vivastory Nice! I haven't read Lee Child, been meaning to check them out 7mo
sk888888 Love Reacher! So hard to pick a favorite, but I think Tripwire stayed with me for a long time. 7mo
Leftcoastzen @vivastory Well , I am not caught up to the newest, but I like the ones I read. It annoys me that they chose Tom Cruise for the movie adaption, in my mind Reacher looks like a burly Lee Child.😂 (edited) 7mo

Leftcoastzen @sk888888 Tripwire was intense, stayed with me too. 7mo
TiredLibrarian @Leftcoastzen Tom Cruise didn't fit my mental image of Jack Reacher either, but by about 10 minutes into the movie, he won me over. 7mo
Leftcoastzen @TiredLibrarian I will have to check it out. I never gave him a chance.😀 7mo
Cinfhen It‘s terrible how Jack Reacher is synonymous with Tom Cruise but that‘s how it goes....He‘s so damn charming 7mo
