Georgie is in Italy and the mysteries keep coming. She‘s at a former schoolmate‘s house party to keep an eye on her cousin the prince. But she‘s also trying to help her friend who is in the area for “her health”. Fun and neatly tied in to 1930s events but I do hope the next book is actually the wedding at last.

On Book Culture:

I‘m visiting Warsaw, Poland right now and I got to say that I am loving their literary culture! Coffeeshops and cafes are frequently decorated with artful stacks of books on shelves, I frequently see people reading on public transit, and it is not uncommon to see ads for books splayed across the city. Amazing!

What is the literary scene/culture like in wherever you are right now, be it your home or on your travels?

🤔😃😉

Nice #cozymystery set in 1929 Scotland, when Dandy bundles her family off to take the waters at a nearby Hydro (and investigate a suspicious death).

Final post of the night and apologies for the fruity language but mick herron is a brilliant writer of modern spy fiction. Within a few chapters i encountered two pieces of brilliant writing, one a stunning evocation of rain and the other simply had me laughing out loud. If you've not read the series id highly recommend.

This was an exceptional book. A detailed, personal account that gives an insight into the patience and determination required for such important negotiations. It's a day by day, sometimes hour by hour story of the journey to peace in Northern Ireland, with plenty of odd little anecdotes thrown in. A must read.

Living it up on a Friday night. Chilled wine, mellow music, snoring dog, comfy chair and a good book. ♥️

Lots of highlights in this book! 5 🌟

Reni writes really well from a black, British, feminist perspective but now I really want recommendations for books featuring the following:

🐈 LGBT and feminism
🐈 Disability studies and feminism

Any suggestions?

Scochrane26 Bad feminist—Roxane gay 5d
Weaponxgirl Audre lourde if you haven‘t tried her? 5d
jenniferw88 @Weaponxgirl thank you! Have Sister Outsider & this one on my Kindle ready to be read 5d

Weaponxgirl @jenniferw88 I‘ve read the tagged book! It‘s really good, I‘ll look up one about disability rights I was looking at recently. Not sure if it‘s feminist as a main focus but I found it recommended on a feminist site. 5d
Weaponxgirl This is the one, looks like it might be in the right area. I haven‘t read it yet though 5d
jenniferw88 @Weaponxgirl thank you! Just added it to the stack! 5d
andrew61 I thought this was a brilliant book and need to reread. Just to let you know she has made a podcast series on the issue of race which i really liked and also i heard about the book on her interview on literary friction podcast ( both are available on itunes). 5d

This really has become my favorite series. This most recent book has references to the first book, and takes the reader down some blind alleys that make it more difficult to figure out whodunnit. More archaeology in this book than the last couple, which I enjoyed.

brit91 That's a beautiful picture!😍😎 5d
AbigailDays Oh wow, did you take that picture? It's gorgeous! 5d
Lynnsoprano @brit91 @AbigailDays Thanks! Yes, I took it on our vacation last month. It‘s at Anna Ruby Falls in northern Georgia. 5d
