Bronx Masquerade | Nikki Grimes
post image

Bronx #Masquerade is the story of a class taking off their masks for a moment and allowing for vulnerability by sharing their struggles through their #poetry.

These covers always makes me thing of a #masquerade. Now if only I had book 1.

“Perhaps again borrowing from Louis XIV, who had presided over an era of dazzlingly extravagant court masques, she decided to start hosting two parties a week at Versailles- one of which was to be a Monday night masked ball.”
Although there are some lovely photos in this book,I regret that there was not one of Marie Antoinette masked. #masquerade #musicalnewyear

Itchyfeetreader Great choice for the prompt and looks like a fascinating book 6mo
vivastory Sounds interesting! 6mo

The Impressionist | Hari Kunzru
post image

"He will play many different roles -- a young prize in a brothel, the adopted son of Scottish missionaries, the impeccably educated young Englishman headed for Oxford -- in order to find the role that will finally fit."

A somewhat recent thrift shop find. I really liked White Tears, so I'm quite excited for this one. Seems to fit the bill for #masquerade

BiblioLitten This book stared at me every time I scanned the shelves in my favourite library. Maybe next time. 😬 6mo
vivastory I loved White Tears. This one sounds great. Adding to my TBR. 6mo
Cinfhen I just picked up White Tears on a #KindleDailyDeal ~ this one looks good too! Cool cover 6mo

Underworld: A Novel | Don DeLillo

The mask transformed him. For the first time in some years he did not see himself as a tenant in an old short popover body with an immense and lumpish head.

What's a Shakespeare play without a #masquerade?

erzascarletbookgasm I would love to attend one of these masquerade parties, complete with costumes and horse carriages! 6mo
GingerAntics He seems to have been a huge fan of them. 6mo
merelybookish @erzascarletbookgasm It would be amazing! You'd just have to be careful not to fall in love with someone from your enemy's family or a man dressed as a woman or a woman dressed as a man. 😉 6mo
