Picnic at Hanging Rock | Joan Lindsay
post image

I‘ve got a sick kid today (nothing serious, slight fever from ear infection) and she is very concerned that I‘m writing in my book. 😆 I realized quite quickly that I had to explain that usually it‘s NOT ok to write in books. Especially library or school books. And to always ask mom first if you need to write in a book. She seems accepting of this. 🤞🏻 #darguschfamilymarkupbookclub

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Awww I hope she feel better 💕💕 1w
Cinfhen Awww! What a sweet thing. Hope she doesn‘t rat you out to G 😜what are your thoughts about Picnic? I feel a little anxious as I think I suggested it for your markup😬 1w

Reviewsbylola She claims to feel fine and was begging to go to the mall earlier. 🤦🏼‍♀️😆 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 1w
Cinfhen Oh good!!! And tell Flo, I think a trip to the mall is an excellent idea 😘 1w
kellyann28 I am nervous about my 4 year old doing the same thing while I'm doing my LMPBC! 1w
Reviewsbylola This particular child is known to draw on everything. Herself, furniture, etc. so I was extra worried. I‘m not sure my other child would ever consider NOT drawing on paper. 😆 @kellyann28 1w
emilyhaldi Love that mischievous little one 😛 7d
CarolynM 😂 Adorable! Glad to hear she's feeling better. 7d

This is my pick for our next round of #darguschfamilymarkupbookclub and I‘m planning on starting it ASAP. A group of girls goes on a picnic in 1900 and not all of them returned. Did they die? Were they murdered? #howiwoulddie #soaringscores

CrowCAH Hmm sounds mysterious for sure! 4w
Cinfhen I‘m hoping it‘s a hit for you all!!! 🤞🏽🤞🏽 4w
Freespirit An Australian classic and a great movie version also 4w

Fire in the Thatch | E.C.R. Lorac
post image

This is a fun little mystery written in 1946. So many suspicious characters and odd occurrences that I never figured out the murderer. Think Agatha Christy in the English countryside. Hopefully my family members will enjoy this next installment in our #darguschfamilymarkupbookclub. We missed our flight to London to see @AnnieD so drinking and reading is taking away a little of the pain.

emilyhaldi I‘m curious to see if the 🍷 affected the nature / quantity of your marginalia 😆 2mo
LeahBergen Oh no! How long do you have to wait for the next flight? 2mo
Reviewsbylola Totes jelly. 2mo
Reviewsbylola Of your trip, not your missed flight. 😜 2mo

Mdargusch You‘re not at all interested in seeing why there are so many Amish books being published? @Reviewsbylola 3mo
Reviewsbylola The cover alone tells me that book is not for me. 🤣🤣 3mo
emilyhaldi I‘m voting Moon Tiger 🤣 bet @Meredith3 would be down for the Amish option!! 3mo
Meredith3 @emilyhaldi is right! They all seem good to me tho ✨🤠 3mo
BarbaraBB I loved Moon Tiger but I am fascinated by Amish too (since I met so many on my recent trip across the US). 3mo

This book is laugh out loud funny! And the perfect choice for the #darguschfamilymarkupbookclub 👌🏻 (good job @AnnieD 😉) Kay‘s book includes stories in short diary-entry format from his time as an OBGYN in the NHS. He encountered some strange, hilarious, and gruesome cases. Be forewarned: if you‘re thinking about having a baby anytime soon, maybe save this book until afterwards....🥴😱

Crazeedi This sounds good! 4mo
Reviewsbylola This was my favorite book this round (the only one I haven‘t read yet is your pick and I‘m not holding my breath 😆). 4mo
emilyhaldi Yikes, sorry @Reviewsbylola that‘s a rough note to end on 😂 4mo
Mdargusch Can‘t wait to get started! 4mo

The Haunting of Hill House | Shirley Jackson
post image

What did I just read? I‘m thinking the author might have been on an acid trip while writing this?

Reading this with my family‘s notations in the margins was very entertaining and made the book a definite pick! It wasn‘t scary but was creepy and perfect for a Halloween buddy read or a mark up book club.

Avanders 🥰🥰 6mo
emilyhaldi I felt the same way... The notations really make the book! It definitely wasn't scary 🤔 6mo
LeahBergen The notations! 😆 6mo
Reviewsbylola 😆😆😆 6mo

Are these characters #paranoid or is this “evil house” really haunted?? I don‘t know, but I‘m determined to get through this #darguschfamilymarkupbookclub pick once and for all after having little to no reading time lately!!

vivastory Sorry to hear about the lack of reading time! Excellent book pick Dargusch clan 👏🤘 7mo
RadicalReader I‘ve heard this book was good but I haven‘t read it yet 7mo

emilyhaldi I don't remember 😆 @Reviewsbylola 7mo
LeahBergen I liked this one! 7mo
Cinfhen Ha!!! I‘m pretty sure @emilyhaldi posted a review for this book @Reviewsbylola 😜😂😂🧐🤨 7mo
Cinfhen Or maybe it was you @Reviewsbylola ... I can‘t keep my Dargusch girls straight 💕💕💕 7mo
Carleneishere As I was scrolling, I def thought you had s pregnancy test sitting on your book. 7mo
emilyhaldi 😂😂 @Carleneishere that would have been a fun way to announce! 7mo
Reviewsbylola I posted one fairly recently and when I rated it on GR, I saw @Emilyhaldi read it and rated it within the last year or two. Apparently it made a great impression on her. 🤣🤣 @Cinfhen 7mo

Adam Kay #startedfromthebottom in the NHS. He kept a diary over the years, most of which was spent as a training OBGYN.

You‘ll be shocked. You‘ll find yourself laughing (Kay has an amazing sense of humor), you‘ll wonder how so many stupid people exist in this world. 😂 You‘ll also question why anyone in their right mind would become a doctor for NHS. (97 hour work week is just the tip of the ice berg.)

Cinfhen I‘ve heard really good things about this book😀and I‘m really intrigued by your photo prop😜 10mo
TheKidUpstairs Sounds like a great read! I always get a little freaked out reading books or watching shows about doctors starting out. They're so sleep deprived, and I know How little my brain works when I'm tired, I hate to think of the mistakes they must make. 10mo
Cathythoughts Great review... I think I‘ll get it for my daughter for her birthday ( she‘s a nurse ) 10mo

Reviewsbylola Genevieve had a little obsession with conception, fetal development, and birth so when I happened upon this in London I bought it for her. 😂 @Cinfhen 10mo
Cinfhen Most parents who go to London bring their kids home a toy replica of a double decker bus 😂😂 You‘re my favorite mom EVER 10mo
Reviewsbylola Lol they got that too. 😆😆😆 @Cinfhen 10mo
Cinfhen Haha!!!! And was there also a Beefeater hat!?!?? Or a tiara???? 10mo
Reviewsbylola No, maybe this next time. 🤗 @Cinfhen 10mo
Cinfhen Niki totally begged for that tiara when we visited Tower of London 😂😂 10mo

Only @Meredith3 would mention 2 Girls 1 Cup by page six of the #darguschfamilymarkupbookclub. I can‘t. 🤢🤢

And please, if you don‘t know what 2G1C is DO NOT GOOGLE. Trust me on this.

Meredith3 I just rewatched it the other day while fairly drunk and it was just as bad as I remember, if not worse 👍🏻 10mo
Meredith3 Also, I believe it‘s one of the more important things to see before you die 💀 10mo
Reviewsbylola How even in the world . . . 🤮🤮🤮 @Meredith3 10mo

MicheleinPhilly EW. That‘s just wrong. Girl, you nasty @Meredith3 🤮🤮 10mo
Meredith3 Hey, I never said I liked it. 😹 it‘s just one of those things you have to see before you die. I actually have a huge issue with vomit in any capacity. 🥴 @MicheleinPhilly 10mo
MicheleinPhilly @Meredith3 I can‘t be anywhere in the vicinity of vomiting. I can‘t even hear it because it is contagious. The first time I saw Bridesmaids I literally had to pause the movie to throw up. 10mo
Meredith3 @MicheleinPhilly omg I love that movie but that scene is terrible 🥵 I feel you, girl!! 10mo
Reviewsbylola We‘re the same way @MicheleinPhilly except I personally don‘t vomit, it does however give me a panic attack. Which is why I‘m even more perplexed that @meredith3 even watched 2G1C in the first place. 😂 10mo
Reviewsbylola My apologies. 😣 @MyNamesParadise 10mo
Meredith3 @Reviewsbylola you‘re welcome @MyNamesParadise 😹 10mo
LeahBergen NOT going to Google it! 😳😳😳 10mo
