Just a quick note to say thank you to all of you who have participated in #melodicmay - I've really enjoyed seeing all your recommendations for the songs. Special mention goes to @DGRachel, @bookwrm526 and @Jas16 - you did really well on increasing my #tbr! 😂💞🎶

Jas16 Thank you! This was a lot of fun. 2y
bookwrm526 It was fun! Sorry I crapped out halfway through, I'll do better this month if you're doing one! (edited) 2y
DGRachel Thanks for hosting! Searching Goodreads blew up my TBR, too!! 😂😂 2y

There is a #wholelottahistory in this book which I have purchased twice (once as an ebook), started once, and never finished. I will get back to it... #melodicmay

Romeo & Juliet | William Shakespeare

#wholelottahistory I had to compare these 2 film adaptations for the oral part of my GCSE (11 years ago) - in front of the teacher I had a crush on! #melodicmay #day31

Bklover Loved the top one! 2y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Romeo and Juliet was the first play I read for English in high school - my teacher was pretty fierce but fair and knowledgeable (awesome qualities much needed for teens to take you seriously). I remember watching both and having to write a report on the stylistic differences... my fancy font use was epic 😂 (edited) 2y
Suet624 Loved both so much. 2y
AccioAlltheBooks I saw the one with Danes and DiCaprio on the theater 4 times. It was a high school obsession.... 2y
Aleida Oh I love Olivia! 2y

Embarrassing to confess but I don't think I was supposed to keep this book after we read it senior year of high school, and I did anyway. I swear this is the only book theft I can recall committing. I still have it a millennia later. I hope my AP Literature teacher has forgiven me. If not it is in remarkably good condition so I could return it. #melodicmay #whatiwenttoschoolfor

Remember my female English teacher who taught me Blake? She also taught these three books - all of which I didn't like! I still had to go to the classes though but I now reckon that I went more because of her than the books! 🤣. 2 ⭐. I would probably have bailed on this one if it hadn't been a set text.

jenniferw88 This one was the best out of the 3! 2y
jenniferw88 Also, sorry to any #american #littens, but your literature of the 20th century doesn't seem to appeal to me! 2y
TrishB I always thought I was the only person in the world to dislike Gatsby. Phew..... 2y

minkyb I need to re-read Fitzgerald to see if I am as taken now as I was in my youth! 😅 2y
Betty_Bookworm After reading Maureen Corrigan's So We Read On, I had an entirely new take/love for Gatsby. 2y

I still need to read the last book in the series about Vlad (don't call him Dracula) and his mortal girlfriend who has powers of her own. I tried Frost's other series and couldn't get it into it. Had no such issues with these books- I devour them in one sitting. #Transylvania #melodicmay

LeahBergen He looks a little Poldark-ish! 2y
Moonpa This series is awesome! I need to read the last one too! 2y
Jas16 @LeahBergen You are so right! I never noticed before. 2y
Cheyenne I never notice before, but yes he does look 👀 a little poldark-ish. 2y

I have to be a mini-vampire at every meal...

I took the advice of #thewriter @EricQiao and chose this book from my Memorial Day weekend stack to read first. This book was such fun. It was like an old caper movie with twists and turns and constant reversals of fortune. #melodicmay
