Orlando: A Biography | Virginia Woolf
post image

I can‘t promise I #wontgetfooledagain by a pretty book cover, but I can promise with quite a lot of certainty, that I will never read a Virginia Woolf book again. She‘s just not for me #sorrynotsorry 🤷‍♀️


Cinfhen Hahahahaha 😂😅😂😅😂😂🤣 9mo
diovival Same! 9mo
JazzFeathers Niether she's for me. 9mo

gradcat Oh, well...I‘m certainly in the minority here...I love Virginia Woolf! But what do I know? 😂😂 9mo
batsy Ooh great edition! I'm with @gradcat though 😄❤️ 9mo
Kalalalatja @gradcat @batsy I was afraid I would be in the minority 😂😂 but good to know I‘m not alone @diovival @JazzFeathers @Jas16 🙌 9mo
gradcat @batsy @Kalalalatja Same here—glad to know there are some folks who appreciate poor, dear Virginia 😂😂😂 9mo
GatheringBooks i have yet to read the big bad woolf but really looking forward to the experience. 🧚🏼‍♀️ 9mo
BiblioLitten I love VW too, but Orlando was the first book I bailed on. Maybe I wasn‘t in the right frame of mind. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 9mo

Enduring Love | Ian McEwan
post image

Saw the film, but haven't read the book yet.

#marchintothe70s @Lizpixie @Cinfhen

#WontGetFooledAgain is what a lot of people might have thought after McEwan eventually came clean of his "hoax".

Apparently the case file printed in the Appendix of the book was based on the novel and part of McEwan's fiction, but a lot of people thought it was real. A bit of research could have cleared this up.

Link to Guardian article from 1999 in comments.

Lizpixie Sounds intriguing.👍 9mo
gradcat @julesG I learned something today...thanks for that! 🙏 9mo

I read this play in college and all I remember was a cowboy guy lassoing bedposts. Doesn't sound like a play I'd rush to see now, but I like everything by Sam Shepard that I do remember, so maybe I should? 🤠
@Lizpixie @Cinfhen

Cinfhen What more do you need to remember?!?!??! 9mo
Lizpixie Sounds like fun! 9mo
Billypar @Cinfhen Ha, that's true: this promo photo does make it look very lively! 9mo

Theaelizabet Saw this Off-Broadway in...1984? But not with these two. By the time I got there it was Aiden Quinn and Moira Harris, and it was fantastic. 8mo
Billypar @Theaelizabet Sounds like a great performance to catch! I wanted to see True West, which is on Broadway now, but it's closing soon, so I don't think it's in the cards. 8mo
Theaelizabet @Billypar I considered True West, too, but decided to pass. My theater budget only goes so far. 8mo

Riden sure wasn‘t going to get fooled by Alosa anymore, not after the first book‘s shenanigans.

Cinfhen I love that word...shenanigans ❣️ 9mo
Cathythoughts Great cover 👍🏻♥️🖤 9mo

The Power of the Dog | Don Winslow
post image

Starting this one tonight. One of my friends raves about this trilogy, so I‘m going to give it a go. The book is about a DEA agent trying to bring down Mexican drug lords at the height of the War on Drugs. Should be interesting. Given the subject I won‘t be surprised if the #Wontgetfooledagain prompt fits.

Tonight‘s hot beverage is Rolo hot chocolate 😋


Leftcoastzen I snagged a copy too,a little out of my usual reading, but Stephen King tweeted positive things about series! 9mo
Chrissyreadit I love your mug! 9mo
Cinfhen It‘s been on my TBR ( not owned) for a long time!! I‘ll be curious to hear your thoughts! 9mo

Lizpixie I have The Force & his new book is on my the list. I didn‘t know about these. Thanks! 9mo
andrew61 I read this before Christmas and was totally absorbed so i asked for the cartel for Christmas and plan to read it soon. Hope you enjoy. 9mo
Melissa_J @Leftcoastzen I read his book about a corrupt NYPD detective - The Force - and really enjoyed it. I have high hopes for this one. 9mo
Melissa_J @Chrissyreadit thank you. It was a Disney World purchase 😊 9mo
Melissa_J @Lizpixie his latest book is actually the final book in the trilogy that starts with this one. I really liked The Force. 9mo
Melissa_J @andrew61 so far so good 👍🏻 9mo
Melissa_J @Cinfhen hopefully it doesn‘t take me too long to read it! 9mo

It took me a while to come up with a book that had “fool” in the title (or subtitle, in this case) 😆


Melissa_J Have you read this one? I‘ve had it forever but it remains unread. 9mo
Ingerella I love this book! I read it right before we went to London and visited all of the historic places mentioned it in. 9mo
batsy An excellent subtitle 😆 Lovely cover, too. You and @TrishB with your pretty editions make me want to read *all* of the historical fiction. 9mo

Cinfhen Nice choice👍🏻 9mo
TrishB I nearly did this one too 👍🏻 Your cover is much nicer than mine ❤️ @batsy now I have cover envy too! 9mo
TrishB @Melissa_J I‘ve read- it‘s as good as all her others, and I‘m not a Tudor fan! 9mo
Cathythoughts ❤️👍🏻 9mo
Lizpixie The interpretation is up to you! Nice choice👍 9mo
LeahBergen @Melissa_J I haven‘t which is odd as I‘ve read both of her other really huge ones (about Cleopatra and Mary Queen of Scots). 😆 I think I bought it during a period of being “Tudored out”. 9mo
LeahBergen @Ingerella Perfect timing! 👏🏻 9mo
LeahBergen @batsy I find big honking historical fiction books oddly comforting. 😆 9mo
LeahBergen @TrishB Oh oh; here we go again with our old historical fiction covers thing! This is the American first edition and thankfully not as hideous as the first edition of The Sunne in Splendour. 😆😆 9mo
LeahBergen @Lizpixie I actually couldn‘t believe I didn‘t own a book with “fool” in the title. 😆 9mo

Fool Me Once | Harlan Coben
post image

With his mystery books Harlan Coben has shown he is the master of Suspense and having layers of twists. Just when you say #WontBeFooledAgain he does just that!
#MarchIntoThe70s #WontGetFooledAgain

EadieB Good example! 9mo
Andrew65 @EadieB And the book title was almost perfect too. I love his books! (edited) 9mo
TrishB Great pick 👍🏻 9mo

Maman929 Big fan on his books. I love the Myron Bolitar series. 9mo
Andrew65 @Maman929 The Myron Bolitar Series is one of my favourite all time series! 9mo
Andrew65 @TrishB Thanks 😊 9mo
Cinfhen Waiting patiently for his new one but I‘m not sure it‘s part of the Myron Bolitar series 9mo
Lizpixie I don‘t think I‘ve read any of his🤔 9mo
Andrew65 @Lizpixie You simply must, great reads! 👍 9mo
Andrew65 @Cinfhen Me too, or is that impatiently! 🤣 9mo

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?”
