Finished with a whooping ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
I have loved the series for YEARS (Netflix has removed it- disgraceful- and I am seriously contemplating of just buying all the 7 seasons DVDs to catch up) and I really enjoyed this book. Worth is a wonderful narrator and each chapter is a glimpse into her world. Fascinating insight into the East End & the development of society and medicine.

I love the show, so I bought this and an interesting looking book about the Tube at the Museum of London, a place I recommend for every hobby historican.

My May reads! Seven total, which is huge given the major reading slump I‘ve been in the past year. Two of these books brought my Great American Read total up to 38/100! #thegreatamericanread #callthemidwife #daughteroffortune #thecolorpurple #seeme #jurassicpark

Ok I technically have already read this and own the kindle book, but I absolutely love the show this is based on, and the audiobook is on sale today for $3.95! 😱 I think I'm going to have to break down and buy it. Btw I would highly recommend the book and especially the show, they are amazing!

corycatelyn One of my favorite books and shows! I've learned a lot from both 😊 2y
JenlovesJT47 @corycatelyn me too! I've watched the show twice already and I'm ready for round 3! 😅 2y
MallenNC The show is great. I‘ve read the first book also 2y

JenlovesJT47 @MallenNC do you plan on reading the other books in the series? I have them on my kindle but just haven't gotten around to it yet. So many books so little time! The show is great ❤️ 2y
corycatelyn @JenlovesJT47 I think the new season comes on in the US in April (?) 2y
corycatelyn @MallenNC @JenlovesJT47 I've read all the books and enjoyed them immensely, but I'm also a labor and delivery nurse so it's kind of my realm 😉 2y
JenlovesJT47 @corycatelyn yes that sounds about right, it usually comes out in April or May. Then I make the mistake of watching the whole season in two days lol. 😭But I can't help it! That's awesome you're a L&D nurse. I actually went to school for that for a couple of years but it wasn't for me (it was more of a problem with the school I was going to, not the actual nursing). I've always been fascinated by midwifery and childbirth. Any book recs? 2y
corycatelyn @JenlovesJT47 small great things by Jodi picoult, the secrets of midwives by Sally hepworth for fiction. Ina may gaskin is a prominent midwife who has written books on midwifery. She has great stories! Her books are ina may gaskin's guide to childbirth and spiritual midwifery. 2y
MallenNC @JenlovesJT47 I started reading the second one but the stories in that book were in the season I was watching so I stopped. I'm sure I'll read them eventually! The show does diverge from the books in later seasons. 2y
MallenNC @corycatelyn Small Great Things was great! Hard to read, but a great book. I've also read The New Arrival, which is a memoir of a trainee nurse in the U.K., in the 70s I think. 2y
corycatelyn @MallenNC huge plot twist that I loved 😊 I will have to check that one out. Thanks! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @corycatelyn @MallenNC thanks for the recommendations!! 🤗 I would also recommend to you guys if you haven't read it yet 2y

Day 17: Comfort Books (Pasta Day) - Call the Midwife is just the sort of comfort book I need right now. I think that it would have been a lot of fun to stay at Nonnatus House & have many adventures with the girls in the late 50s London scene. #bookishwackyholidays #octoberbookchallenge #callthemidwife #comfortreads #memoir #trilogy #somanybookssolittletime

This cover image was used in #callthemidwife 'a BBC adaptation, which I LOVE. So this little book was a must buy when I found it outside at Shakespeare and company in Paris. Excited to read it!
