Obvious State recently posted a throwback to their Subtext collection and I flipped my lid and bought them immediately. I will be framing these and placing them casually throughout my house, sorry not sorry. #hilarious #QuotsyJuly19

The Secret Garden 100th Anniversary | Frances Hodgson Burnett

Is anyone else super into the musical version of The Secret Garden? I love this moment on stage, when Mary finds the #key. #QuotsyJuly19

This has been on my TBR for literal years. I am 100% in love with the Great Lakes, and so thankful to be a #MittenLitten. In September, my husband and I are heading to MI's Bois Blanc Island for an off-grid getaway, and I think this may have to be my read! What could be better than reading this on a Great Lakes island?! #LetsTravelJuly

"Mr. Sondheim! Look, I made a hat! Where there never was a hat! It's a Latin hat, at that!"

Who didn't love Lin's shout-out to Sondheim when he won his first Tony in '08? Check out the speech if you haven't, and don't miss the tagged book of Sondheim's lyrics, complete with comments, notes, and anecdotes. It's a must-have for musical theatre fans! #TheHat #LilithJuly #LinManuelMiranda #seemoretheatre

The Bell Jar | Sylvia Plath

Such a fun throwback! Thanks, @nu-bibliophile! #YourStory
1. Favorite book was The Bell Jar. Oh, how deeply I felt it in my tortured teenage soul. (Can't you just tell from the photo how dark and serious I was?)
2. I listened exclusively to showtunes, and was mad for the '98 Cabaret revival, RENT, Ragtime.
3. Coronet braids with the dorkiest bangs ever, omg.
4. I lived in jeans, T-shirts, and Converse.
5. My backpack was full of books, of course!

nu-bibliophile Converse rocks...I still wear them till today 👍 1w
Andrea313 @nu-bibliophile Same! I never really grow out of them; even wore them for my wedding. 1w

This was, to my chagrin, the first thing I thought of for #psyche. Of all of the cringe-worthy lines in the Twilight series, this has to be my least favorite, and of course, it has seared itself into my memory. "Collective vampire psyche." Collective. Vampire. Psyche. COLLECTIVE VAMPIRE PSYCHE. Why, Stephanie Meyer?!
Are there any lines in books that stand out to you for the wrong reasons?

Music is such a huge part of #TheStory for my husband and I. Our go-to joint was The Magic Stick here in Detroit, and our standard weekend date was to see every #concert that came through. We saw some truly terrible acts, and some great ones, too, and when we decided to get married, we took engagement photos at the venue in front of a wall of show posters. #LetsTravelJuly #LilithJuly

In the late 90s/early 2000s, when we were just getting into HP, my best friend and I would #GetOutTheMap and drive to #Canada to buy the Bloomsbury/Raincoast editions (as opposed to the Americanized Scholastics). Nowadays, we'd probably just order online, but I can't regret those fun road trips! #LilithJuly #LetsTravelJuly #HPSummer19

Romance readers! If you have not yet read the Lilac Bay series by Rachel Schurig, one of my #favorite authors, get thee to your e-reader! This is the first of a series which takes place in adorable little town reminiscent of Michigan's Mackinac Island. Lilac Bay is a fantastic fictional place, and you can start the series with the tagged book. Let me know what you think! #SittinOnTheDockOfTheBay #30JuneBooks #SongsOfSummer

Powered_By_Plants I had also found this 🙋🏼‍♀️ , when I read the blurb I think “right up my street!!” I have picked the book up a few times and never finished . I am now listening to it on audible and loving it. I think I may be right in thinking it‘s P Pullman himself reading it with other characters. Maybe try it on audio book 😁 2w

There were lots of reasons my two friends and I took a vacation #DownInMexico; one is that this silly Ives play sparked my interest in Trotsky's house in Coyoacan (pictured here). That trip saw us take impromptu boat rides, dance on rooftops in Mexico City, drink tons of wine (probably #StrawberryWine, too!), and otherwise create tons of memories that always bring us to #laughter whenever we reminisce. #30JuneBooks #SongsOfSummer #WanderingJune
