Bookwormjillk We‘re almost there! This chapter would have been interesting except it was Rosy so… 2w
TheBookHippie @BarkingMadRead YAY!!! WE CAN DO IT!!! also OMG ROSY. WHAT A __________.... 2w
ravenlee I feel like Dodo could have slapped the smirk off Rosy‘s face and nobody would blame her. #shehaditcoming #ifyoudabeenthereifyoudaseenit #howcouldyoutellmethatiwaswrong 2w
BarkingMadRead @ravenlee 🤣🤣🤣 2w
ravenlee @BarkingMadRead to be honest, I get it stuck in my head all the time. 2w
BarkingMadRead @ravenlee it‘s a fave, my daughter and her friends actually performed it at a fundraiser in high school. So much fun! 2w
ravenlee @BarkingMadRead it‘s actually the only reason I own the dvd of Chicago. I don‘t care about the rest of it. 2w
LitStephanie @ravenlee @Bookwormjillk @TheBookHippie yeah Rosy is just awful. I think Eliot did such a great job of describing her character. It isn't that she is evil. She just lacks the capacity to empathize and to imagine herself ever being wrong. 1w
TheBookHippie @LitStephanie I agree!!!!! Narcissist 😵‍💫 vapid comes to mind as well 😝 1w
LitStephanie @TheBookHippie vapid! Perfect! 1w

#CellBlockTango #MusicalNewYear

I read A Lesson Before Dying over 20 years ago and loved it so much I quickly read almost everything else by Ernest Gaines. I hate to admit I don‘t remember much other than the man on death row. It was so good I purchased a copy at a library book sale recently to re-read even though I don‘t usually re-read things.

Cinfhen I‘ve also meant to read this! Thanks for the reminder 😊 4y

This is not a cell block I would want to tango in. This series is awesome about a special prison for teens that is more Steampunk/horror than I ever expected based on the hard cover cover. (This is the paperback)

This is a #cellblocktango I should really finish.

Cinfhen Creepy!! 4y
vivastory Sounds good. I love Steampunk! 4y

kristincatastrophic I love this book. I read it in high school not long after it came out amd it blew my mind. One of the very first "adult" books I ever read. Sorry, I couldn't help but share that 4y
Crazeedi @kristincatastrophic I remember the first *adult* book I read too 4y
DivineDiana @gradcat 👍🏻😉😀 4y
DivineDiana @kristincatastrophic It certainly is a memorable read! Thanks for sharing! 🙂 4y
ravenlee My college roommate freshman year moved in with a music dictionary and this book. Over the whole year I saw her read about ten pages. But Oprah told her to eead it so she tried! 4y
DivineDiana @ravenlee I‘m glad she tried! I think Oprah has done a magnificent job of encouraging people to read! 💗 4y
vivastory Haven't read this one. Sounds good though! 4y
Cinfhen This is an excellent book @vivastory ‼️‼️‼️ definitely read it xx Cindy & Oprah BOTH give it their stamp of approval 😊 4y

Not read but blurb sounds like an unpleasant read. It paints a very vivid, mad, sickening picture of real life behind one of Bali‘s most notorious prisons. “...exposes the jail's role in supplying high-grade drugs to the outside, the gang that rules the jail through terror, the corruption that means anything is for sale, and the squalor and misery endured by prisoners.” A #cellblocktango that we cannot possibly imagine.

vivastory This one sounds crazy! 4y
Cinfhen Nightmare scenario 😱😱😱but probably a fascinating read 4y

A timely question from Angela Y. Davis. Another from the tbr that I need to read sooner rather than later. (I appreciate that these prompts are reintroducing me to all the books on my own shelves.)

readordierachel @8little_paws I hear you! It's getting out of hand around here. 4y
readordierachel @vivastory Should be a quick read, only 115 pages excluding notes and such. 4y
