#FierceFeb #GirlsJustWannaHaveFun Another favorite childhood book I had forgotten about until @Laalaleighh posted about it several months ago. I kept an eye out at the library bookstore & snagged a 25 cent copy. The cover is like the lower left so I still want to find the edition I had on the upper right. I was fascinated by Annabel & her tiny talking dog, Gloria & that Annabel is half-fairy & learns to fly which sounded like so much fun to me.💕

Cinfhen I don‘t remember this one...but looks like a sweet, fun read💕 2y
LeahBergen I would‘ve loved this as a kid. How did I miss it?? 2y
AWahle I love this story! Will keep an eye out for the old cover. I have a copy and understand the love for the cover you originally read the book with. 2y

BarbaraJean Ohhhh... I loved this one, too! And I actually have two copies of the edition with the old cover—they‘re both old paperbacks and not in pristine condition or anything, but if you‘d like to have one of them, I‘d love to send you my duplicate copy! Just let me know. 😊 2y
batsy I don't know this one and that certainly looks like she's having fun! :) Hope you're able to find a copy with the sweet older cover. 2y
Laalaleighh Ah I love this so much!!! 2y
DebinHawaii @Cinfhen @LeahBergen @batsy It's such a sweet and fun children's book. 📚💕 @AWahle Thank you! Such a fun story. 😆👍 @Laalaleighh Thank you for reminding me about it! 😆💜 2y
DebinHawaii @BarbaraJean Oh wow! That is so nice of you. 🤗💜I would love to have it. Can I trade you for it or send something in return? 2y
Cinfhen That soooo awesome @BarbaraJean ❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️ 2y
BarbaraJean No need unless you want to! Call it a get well gift. 😊 I‘m not sure when I acquired the second copy, and I haven‘t wanted to just donate it to a library sale or used book store. I‘d love to be able to give it to someone who loves the book! Email me your info at barbarajanettewood@gmail.com and I‘ll send it your way! 2y
DebinHawaii @BarbaraJean You are so sweet. I will email you with my address. Thank you! 💕🤗💕 2y

When I think #GirlsJustWannaHaveFun, I can‘t help but think of the bookish adventures I have with @Megaled 😃

Our adventures usually include book shopping, which is how I ended up acquiring this cookbook at a library book sale. We‘ve made several attempts at having a book club with our friends over the years without much success, but we‘ll keep trying and make use of this book someday!

@Cinfhen @batsy

batsy How lovely! You guys should totally cook from that book for your wonderful club of two :) 2y
Cinfhen That's fun, a real life bff who's a Litten too💚 (edited) 2y
Megaled Well goodness, you are too sweet. But we do have the best bookish adventures! Haha how many times have we tried book club now- 3? 😂 2y
megt @batsy @Cinfhen she‘s awesome! We‘ll definitely have to try out some recipes some day so we can report back. 😊 2y
megt @Megaled haha, and you‘re probably the only person who will put up with (and understand) my crazy wandering and rambling when we‘re out book shopping. I feel like we‘re overdue for another grand adventure. We still need to get up to The Shire! And yes, I think we‘ve tried 3 times. Maybe someday it will stick 🙃 2y

The girls/women of this time period started the fun and paved the way for us!! I don‘t drink, but I like knowing I have a choice! The women who made America Modern! Reading about this era fascinates me 💄💋👗

batsy Ooooh, this sounds good. Having the right to a choice is so important! 2y

#fiercefeb #girlsjustwannahavefun. I read Tina Fey‘s memoir ,Bossypants , so I was very happy to find her partner in comedy‘s book at the library discard sale. These two ladies know how to have fun !

Cinfhen Still want to read this one! I agree Tina & Amy know how to have fun!!! 2y

Another from #tbrmountain...
With a trip to London coming up, and a recent viewing of The Crown on Netflix, I have been googling the royal family nonstop and am dying to get to this book! Why haven‘t I heard more about Princess Margaret, the fun party girl of the family?! 🥂

Cinfhen I‘m loving her sunnies 😎❤️they just scream FUN 2y
saresmoore 1. I want to know how you like this book when you get to it. 2. How is The Crown? I‘ve been verrry tempted to watch it, but didn‘t want to invest if there would be a repeat of the Downton Abbey fiasco. 🙄 (Yeah, I‘m still not over that.) 2y
TheBookStacker I love The Crown! (Much more than I did Downton.) 2y

Mdargusch I think they try to pretend she doesn‘t exist. 2y
Susannah @saresmoore So far, I'm enjoying The Crown. It's not perfect (I have capital-o opinions about how some of the best characters will essentially disappear for entire episodes), but I would definitely recommend watching the first two or three episodes of Season 1 to see what you think. I did not stick with Downton. Why did it disappoint you? 2y
saresmoore @Susannah I think I just got fed up with the perpetual killing off of favorite characters and gave up on it. 2y
Reviewsbylola Great cover! 2y
Susannah @saresmoore Ah, yes. I understand. I watched Downton on and off over the seasons, but for me, the pain inflicted upon Anna and Mr Bates became too much. And I could not understand how Mary got away with being a complete horror so much of the time yet men fell at her feet. I liked Edith more. 2y
batsy I didn't know that about her, either! @Mdargusch That's probably it... 2y
batsy @Susannah @saresmoore I was thoroughly fed up with it being The Mary Show, too. And tired of Edith getting the short end of the stick. 2y
merelybookish @saresmoore The Crown is good. It's slow but interesting and I've learned a ton about historical events I had only vaguely heard of. More episodic than plot-driven. I do feel bad for Princess Margaret. I imagine she's spinning in her grave that Prince Harry is allowed to marry a bi-racial American divorced actress. 2y
Susannah @batsy 👊 ... Poor Edith. 2y
Centique I love The Crown and I‘m not usually interested in royalty - but it‘s so well done! And Matt Smith 😍😍😍 2y
saresmoore @batsy @Susannah Yes! Wholly unfair to Edith, or among our bookish set, “the everywoman”...it doesn‘t help that my mom‘s name is Edith! 2y
saresmoore @merelybookish Haha! Poor Princess Margaret. She only ever saw the short end of a stick. I like slow, historical, & episodic. Thank you! 2y
saresmoore @Centique Oh, I forgot about Matt Smith! What am I waiting for?! He‘s dreamy. My favorite Doctor Who, too. 2y
emilyhaldi @saresmoore I never watched Downtown Abbey!! I'm one of the few... You're the first person I've heard express such distaste. I'm only 3 episodes into the Crown but I agree with the consensus here that it is very interesting- especially to me bc I didn't know so much of the Royal family history!! Such scandal! 2y
saresmoore I‘ve been wanting to learn more about the royal family, so it sounds like an entertaining way to get started! I love me some good historical scandal. 2y
Suet624 @saresmoore I have loved the two seasons of The Crown. The acting is terrific and the scenery is beautiful. There was a lot of historical info in the second season that I didn‘t know. 2y
saresmoore @Suet624 Oh, that‘s great. You know how highly I value your perspective! When I watch it, be prepared for email commentary. :) 2y
Suet624 @saresmoore I‘d watch it again. I was really impressed. And boo to Prince Phillip. A sniveler. 2y
