#SoaringScores #CatchUp
Set in the Scottish Highlands with boats, hills & fog, I think this book works as a catch up for #LeavingPort #MistyMountains & #TheSkyeBoatSong 😉Finished early in the week. The usual Colgan sweet & a nice revisit to the characters from The Bookshop on the Corner with a new MC helping out Nina. I wasn‘t sure of Zoe at first but she won me over & I adored the two young boys Hari & Patrick. Not my favorite but easy & good.

DebinHawaii I just realized the description must be for the British version as the MC & son‘s names are totally different. Odd. 🤔 (edited) 2mo
Cinfhen And very odd in regards to the publisher 2mo
CrowCAH Sounds like a quaint little book shop! 2mo

#maymoviemagic #youngandbeautiful

I read this when I was #young and it made me think differently about the perceived need to be #beautiful. Probably very outdated now - it‘s nearly 30 years old - but back then, this was the first voice I‘d heard questioning the way women were represented in media etc.

I am so so #backlist, I‘m like a deep sea diver for books 😂😂

Liz_M "deep sea diver" Nice! ? 7mo
Cinfhen I‘m amazed your memory still holds up! #Impressive 🙌🏻❣️ 7mo
GingerAntics Actually, it‘s still remarkably relevant. The situation she talks about is worse now and it‘s on men now too in more ways, but this still holds up. 7mo

I think I will succeed in reading the longlist before announcements of the shortlist 🤓

Cinfhen WOW! I haven‘t read any....some I never even heard of😱#impressive 🙌🏻 2y
batsy 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 2y
Simona @Cinfhen Me neither ... majority of the titles (and authors) were unknown to me, and that is the reason why I like Man Booker Prize, especially International version. 2y

Simona @batsy Next year? 😜😘 2y
batsy 😂😭 It's not over yet! There's the shortlist and I'm going to work on my willpower 🤞🏽😘 2y
Simona @batsy Yes you will, I believe in you 🙌🤟😘 2y
Emilymdxn I‘m on 3 so far! I didn‘t pick up on it till quite late :( doing my best tho! 2y
Simona @Emilymdxn I started a day after announcements and is still a race with the time .... do you think you will managed? 2y
Emilymdxn I don‘t think I will at all, I only started a week ago or so (I‘d already read one of them coincidentally before I started trying to tick them all off). I think I‘ll manage the whole shortlist when it comes out tho 2y
Simona @Emilymdxn Timelines between longlist - shortlist and shortlist - winner could have been reversed. 2y
LeahBergen Wow!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2y

Gisli needs to say #PinchMe every time he closes his eyes, because actually sleeping seems to be a very bad idea. Good Dream-Woman and Evil Dream-Woman are giving him no end of grief!

(Other than that, I have to admit to having No Idea what's going on in this particular saga 😕. Much sneaking round spearing each other and head-chopping-off-ness.)


Cinfhen You're still committed to this #CHUNKSTER #BigBookMonitor #Impressive @minkyb (edited) 2y
RachelO @Cinfhen Ha! Thank you. I definitely need a chunkster cheerleader /#bigbookmonitor for this one. But it will be finished by Christmas. #still6weekstogo #OMGisthatall??? 🙀 2y

Anyone remember this show? Loved it as a kid! Apparently it was based on a book.

DGRachel I had no idea it was based on a book! 2y
merelybookish @DGRachel Me neither! Until I searched this morning. 2y
Cinfhen Yup!!! Willie Ames & his pooka shell necklace 😍😍😍 2y

merelybookish @Cinfhen Right! Cause he was the "bad" boy in the family. I still remember their names: David, Mary, Susan, Nancy, Joni, Elizabeth, Tommy & Nicolas. :) 2y
AlaMich I was a big fan of this show as a kid!! 2y
Cinfhen Wow! #impressive memory 🙌🏻 2y
Betty Enjoyed this show a lot! Diana Hyland (John Travolta's older girlfriend) was the first wife on the show; got cancer and had to leave before dying. 2y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I remember this show!! I liked it as a kid because I think I was around the same age as the Nicholas character (that was the little boy‘s name, right?) 2y
merelybookish @Betty That's sad. She must have been fairly young. I don't remember her. Just the second actress who played the stepmom. 2y
merelybookish @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I was close in age to Nicholas too. My best friend growing up was the youngest of nine, so I think she identified a lot with his character. ☺️ 2y
Betty @merelybookish She played John Travolta's mom in The Boy in the Plastic Bubble. Considerably older than him. She was the love of his life 2y
Bklover I loved that show! Had such a crush on Willie Ames! 2y
LeahBergen Such a flashback! 😂 2y
Centique I loved this too! 2y

My kind of not-so-#freakyFriday - only cakes and #RussianLit2017 for me. I have had a really busy week, and in #timeslikethese I like to treat myself a little extra (who am I kidding, I treat myself all the time!). But this Friday, this mean two cakes, two books and two hours of reading time. I'm switching between audio and print for C&P, so I'm getting through it pretty quickly 👍

#Rocktober #SpookyOctober

Cinfhen Great photo & your cake matches your book cover ~ #impressive 2y
BarbaraBB Great post! 2y

I can read many languages, I just can't speak them. Today I found and 1897 Welsh book of poetry or hymnal. I can't wait to read that one. I can also read Gaelic, Latin, Spanish, French, German and a bit of Russian.
