JUNE #ChildrensClassicRead2022

Every morning for the past four years I have taken my coffee and my selected #ChildrensClassicRead for the month and read for ten minutes.
It is an amazing way to start the day.

Read along, post your review, or any fun findings with the hashtag and tag me! It‘s such zen to read these! And yes I plan on watching the movie after!

This is the June selection! Should be easy to find.

It‘s May, time to pull out our Patricia Highsmith books for #AuthorAMonth. What are you reading?

#AuthorAMonth is a no-pressure, no-commitment Litsy challenge. The goal is to celebrate the works of a particular author each month. Authors were chosen through polls by Litsy participants. Read as many as you like, skip months when needed, it's entirely up to you!

There will be some prizes sent at the end of the year.

The Reef | Edith Wharton
post image

repost for @Graywacke & @Lcsmcat:

The meaning of the title is symbolic. Written in the shadow of her own divorce and failed secret affair, this is a novel on fidelity and infidelity and maybe boundaries.

Wharton was unhappy with her novel, and called it a “poor miserable lifeless lump”. Critics tend to be more forgiving. If you‘re curious, make your own call in our next #whartonbuddyread

What better way to round off April‘s reading & make a great start on May‘s reading. Either aim to read 20 chapters, 20 hours or any other number you want to set yourself, or even set your own goal which fits in with your plans over this weekend.

Lady Susan | Jane Austen
post image

It‘s day 1 of our #PemberLittens buddy read of Lady Susan!

Austen likely wrote this epistolary when she was 19, and never submitted it for publishing during her lifetime.

Mentioning the movie adaptation, called Love & Friendship apparently just to confuse us, as I may use pictures from it in my daily summaries.

Also shown, Lady Vernon & Her Daughter, a retelling I have yet to read that attempts the story with Austen‘s more mature prose style.🤔
