This is a fantastic book about a #youngandbeautiful genderqueer person. I wanted to learn more about individuals of this orientation. As with any human, each is different, but I feel a special kinship that he went to Duke as well, & I got a lot of the references. #yesterday (12 years before him) when I was there, it was somewhat difficult to come out as gay, much less genderqueer. He helped forge a path for others, & that makes me very happy! 4⭐️

JackOBotts I finished their memoir last month and thought it was honest and funny and important. Also: Happy to find another #Dukie! #classof2004 🙌🏼 3w
Megabooks @JackOBotts They wrote a great memoir for sure! #classof2003! Did we know each other?? 3w

JackOBotts Lol! I don‘t know! 🤔 It‘s possible?! 🤷🏻‍♀️I was in an a cappella group and lived in Mirecourt. No sorority affiliation; was a cultural anthropology major...any overlaps? Despite being a smallish school, it‘s still “big” enough. My sister and I were there together for a year and only saw each other when we made plans. 3w
Eggs Nice combo! 3w
Megabooks @JackOBotts I was a cultural anthropology minor 👍🏻👍🏻, but I only started taking those classes the last two years. I took a class one summer because my best friend did and got hooked! I can‘t sing at all! 😂😂 I wrote for The Chronicle all four years. I vaguely knew Dan Mallory (one who wrote tagged book), but wasn‘t in his department until he was nearly gone. 🤔 We may have crossed paths. 3w
Megabooks @Eggs Thank you! 😊 3w
Reggie Looks like I‘m not the only one multitasking. Lol nice!! 3w
Megabooks @Reggie Thanks!! 👍🏻 3w
Cinfhen Well played and memoir sounds entertaining and informative 3w
Megabooks @Cinfhen It was both! I definitely recommend it! 3w
rohit-sawant Great pick! Stacking! 3w
Megabooks @rohit-sawant I hope you enjoy it! 3w
JackOBotts Dang! Chances are I saw your byline, then, but that may be the extent of it! 😁 LOL. Even so, fun to find another alumna on Litsy! I haven‘t been back to campus in over a decade 🤦🏻‍♀️; with all the new bldgs and renovations, it‘ll probably feel so foreign if/when I do get there! 😩 Woman in the Window is on my TBR...I love Hitchcock‘s Rear Window, so I think that book may be right up my alley. 3w
Megabooks It is fantastic to find you!! I was at Duke Hospital this summer and drove around the campus a bit. (As much as you can drive around Duke!) I mainly go to the off-campus places I like such as The Regulator, The Duck Shop, and I have a new favorite restaurant Arepa! @JackOBotts (edited) 3w

Ted‘s victims were all #YoungAndBeautiful 💔#MayMovieMagic This memoir chronicles the #Evolution of a serial killer.
🎶Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be, There's a shadow hanging over me Oh, #yesterday came suddenly🎶
Sorry, Beatles...I doubt you had a serial killer in mind, when you wrote these lyrics 😬

Megabooks I don‘t think that‘s what the Star Trek writers had in mind either! 😬🖖🏻 (edited) 3w
Cinfhen Hahahahaha @Megabooks 3w
Reviewsbylola He certainly had a type! This is such a timely pick considering the new Bundy movie just came out on Netflix! 3w

Cinfhen I know @Reviewsbylola can‘t wait to check out the film!!!! 3w
rohit-sawant I usually avoid anything TB but looking forward to the film, too, mainly because of Efron's performance. Stephen King once described a serial killer named Charlie Starkwether as having the emptiness of a deserted planet behind his eyes, and I get the same feeling whenever I see a picture of TB and it creeps me out to no end. 3w

Y is for Yesterday | Sue Grafton

This is the last of Sue Grafton‘s Kinsey Milhoune series. She passed before she wrote “Z”. I haven‘t read it yet. Even though the series lost some of its appeal I know when I turn the last page it will be like saying goodbye to a friend. #Yesterday #Beatlemaynia. @Eggs

Eggs RIP Sue G. 3w
SaturnDoo I really need to read this series...I have them just can't remember to start 😂 2w

It‘s been four days since I‘ve done any reading! #Yesterday I started to read the tagged book but didn‘t get any further than the first few pages, as I‘ve been plagued with runny nose/flu and headache 🤒🤧🤕. Didn‘t get any much #better today 😫. I think there won‘t be any reading done this weekend as the medicines will make me drowsy as well.😴 See you guys later!

Found this on Goodreads....

It‘s not on Litsy so the one I‘ve tagged is the Murakami book that‘s on my TBR shelf waiting to be read. I‘ve never read any of his books (yet!).

We never questioned whether Noah would love Allie after she was no longer #youngandbeautiful, but we had no idea he would spend his last years telling her about their #yesterday(s)......😭😭😭. #BeatleMaynia #MayMovieMagic
