Just when I thought the book was boring came the much needed twist. I read somewhere that Cate Blanchett was the main lead in the movie version, and now I can only imagine her as Bernadette. She fits the #ShesSoCold role perfectly.

#AnglophileApril #ShesSoCold

I went with the word “cold” in the title; hope to read this book someday.

Reviewsbylola Great choice! I like that it‘s a little different. 10mo
Cinfhen Book sounds good and I don‘t usually read fantasy 👍🏻 10mo
Mdargusch Fantasy books seem to have ice queens a lot! 10mo

Cathy would easily qualify for #ShesSoCold
Kate Beaton's artwork is always such a delight. I haven't read the tagged book yet but hoping to change that soon.

A Panorama of American Film Noir (1941-1953) | Paul Hammond, Raymond Borde, Etienne Chaumeton
post image

#ShesSoCold #AnglophileApril
The author on Barbara Stanwyck's portrayal of Phyllis Dietrichson: "a greedy, exciting woman avid for sexual kicks but almost certainly frigid."
Not sure if I'd use those words- I love film noir but this was not my favorite film book. But Dietrichson and Mary Astor's Ms. Wonderly of Maltese Falcon are two of my favorite femme fatales.

Reviewsbylola It‘s been way too long since I‘ve seen The Maltese Falcon! I think maybe I bought the book at some point. 🤔 10mo
Billypar I own it but also unread. The classic hard-boiled noirs might be one of those rare cases where I'd prefer the films. Or at least I haven't been able to work up enough interest to read them yet! 10mo

Palimpsest I love film noir. 10mo
Theaelizabet “Not sure if I‘d use those words...” Or even that thought. It‘s been quite awhile since I saw the film, but that wouldn‘t be my takeaway. Interesting. (edited) 10mo
Billypar @Theaelizabet Right? I read it a long time ago but I remember it being filled with rambling, lazy analysis- too much just to be chalked up to a poor translation. 10mo
Billypar @Palimpsest I haven't seen any in awhile, but I went through a period where I watched so many: lots of good ones. 10mo
Mdargusch Perfect! 10mo

Elizabeth is on trial for the murder of her autistic son Henry. Either #shessocold for blowing up the unit where he was receiving oxygen treatment or she‘s innocent. As the story unfolds in the court room, Elizabeth‘s guilt is stripped away as we learn the secrets and crimes of other people involved. It‘s a wild ride that also fascinated me because of the “autism mom” layer and the choices Elizabeth made to “treat” Henry‘s autism. #anglophileapril

Samplergal Good one. I‘m almost finished with this one and she really is cold. 10mo
Cinfhen Good choice💕 10mo
Mdargusch Hmmm. Sounds very interesting. 👍🏼 10mo
Reviewsbylola You can borrow it. I think you‘d like it. @mdargusch 10mo

This retelling of Sleeping Beauty tells the story of Emily, a quiet beauty living with her sister and niece in a small English seaside town. She has secrets in her past that have led her to a life of solitude and loneliness... until Vinny comes to town and wakes her from her stupor ☺️

Reviewsbylola Is this your first Taylor? I haven‘t read her yet but I want to ever since I have seen mom and @leahbergen rave about her. 10mo

Mrs. Mike | Benedict Freedman, Nancy Freedman
post image

Set in the early 20th century, Mrs. Mike tells the story of a young woman from Boston who marries a Canadian Mountie and moves to the Canadian wilderness. Unless you‘re in Siberia, there is no winter like a good old Canadian winter so I‘m sure #ShesSoCold throughout the entire book 😂


Amiable Oh my goodness, that was one of my favorite books when I was a kid! I read it over and over again. Have you read the sequel? 10mo
Melissa_J @Amiable I haven‘t even read this one yet 😉 I really should! 10mo
Reviewsbylola This sounds really good! 10mo
Cinfhen This is a “cool” pick!!! Sounds great 😊 10mo

Winter Garden | Kristin Hannah
post image

Anya‘s daughters think #shessocold and have estranged themselves from her in adulthood. In her old age, she begins to tell them the story of her time in Leningrad when she was literally so so cold, during the siege of Leningrad in WWII. There is more to their ice queen mother than they expected. #anglophileapril

Reviewsbylola I‘ve been curious about Hannah‘s other titles since reading Nightingale and 10mo
Hollie @Reviewsbylola I liked this one, but did not like The Great Alone...or was underwhelmed by it anyway. 10mo
Cinfhen Good choice 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻and always love to see a post from you 🥰 10mo
Mdargusch Great choice. I‘m not familiar with this book by her. 10mo
