1. Languages, mostly. I'd especially love to speak Spanish, Japanese and Norwegian properly & fluently.
Singing and acting - but I'm clearly not talented for those 😬
2. I like Dark Academia, but haven't read much of them lately. I remember I quite liked the tagged book - I read it at least twice in the 2000s.

Dear GOD I forgot just how much the action ramps up at the end of this book! Alex is the best type of character - unconventional with a strong sense of justice and an ability to roll with the uncanny. I also have a soft spot for Darlington, because who doesn't? #reread #urbanfantasy #darkacademia

My mystery book club is doing #darkacademia in October. This looks like the book that will “win” the poll. #bookbinge

I know Tartt usually gets credit for “inventing“ dark academia, but what about FRANKENSTEIN? Wasn't the monster created at Victor's college: the University of Ingolstadt in Germany? Creating a monster at college seems pretty dark to me. #justathought 😃

TheBookgeekFrau 😂😂omfg I just came on post this very book!!! 😂😂 6mo

TheBookgeekFrau And you know all I can think about is Abby Normal from Young Frankenstein after posting the brain emoji 🤣🤣 6mo
dabbe @TheBookgeekFrau I showed YF to my sophomore honors as a reward for reading the book. Pretty much the only part they laughed at was the “Abby Normal“ part. They hardly saw any humor in at all! I was flabbergasted! It's my husband's favorite movie, that and BLAZING SADDLES. 🤣🤣🤣 6mo
TheBookgeekFrau @dabbe Yeahhhhh, I showed it to my daughter and her barn friends after me and their trainer were laughing about it -- they all thought we were both crazy 🤷🏻‍♀️ Love Blazing Saddles! But my ALL TIME FAV is History of The World; needless to say it's been on my mind since reading about ancient Roman civilization for #BookedInTime 6mo
dabbe @TheBookgeekFrau And that's one I haven't seen! I'll save that up for the end of our Roman reads, too! 🤩 6mo
TheBookgeekFrau @dabbe 😲 you must see it!!! It's freakin' hysterical 6mo
Eggs Well played👌🏼🙌🏻👍🏼 6mo
dabbe @TheBookgeekFrau On the TBV list! 🤩 6mo

Vansa There's such a recency bias in so much writing about books. Hangsaman by Shirley Jackson is “ dark academia“ as well,people were writing books about a lot of topics before the internet invented (mostly redundant) hashtags for things!!😂🤷🏾‍♀️ 6mo

I really like #DarkAcademia but I seem to buy a lot of it & not get it read.🤷🏻‍♀️ These 11 books are mostly loaded on my Kindle with a few in my physical #TBR stacks.

Hoping to get to the tagged book & Babel soon but are there others here that I should bump up the TBR line for my fall reading plans? 🍂

shortsarahrose I really enjoyed The Mary Shelley Club and so did my mom when I gave her a copy. It is definitely YA, though, so you have to be in the mood for teenage angst 😆 6mo
5feet.of.fury Never Saw Me Coming is a fun read! 6mo
DebinHawaii @shortsarahrose Good to know! 🤗 6mo

DebinHawaii @5feet.of.fury Good to hear. I am considering it for the #dramaqueen prompt for #TitlesAndTunes Based on the blurb, I think it could work. 6mo
Meshell1313 Ooh great list!! 6mo
Eggs What a great collection👍🏼👌🏼 6mo
MaleficentBookDragon I‘m reading The Mary Shelley Club for school. I‘m liking it so far. 6mo
