I‘m so glad I decided to revisit this before diving into Malinda Lo‘s companion novel! It was just as moving and engrossing as I remember from my first reading a few years back. And the perfect thing to get me into the spirit for Pride!

#NoPlaceLikeHolmes @dabbe @Cuilin I can‘t tell you what a joy it‘s been to read The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes with you both and the rest of the gang! Thank you for being such amazing fearless leaders! This book has had some real gems, this week‘s selection being no exception, and I‘m beyond excited to dive into the rest of the canon!

dabbe Well, this just made my day/week/month ... 💙🩵💙 I am loving revisiting my fave tome of all time with you and the gang. And boy, Copper Beeches was quite violent, wasn't it? Can't wait to see what THE MEMOIRS have in store for us! 🤩 4d

#bookmail ! A woman I work closely with has been writing this for a long time during her sabbaticals and was excited to finish and publish it 2 years ago, but I‘m only just now getting around to reading it. I tried to borrow the hoopla version but hearing someone else read the audio was causing major cognitive dissonance, so I figured I‘d support her and order my own copy.

JUST, NO

The first 250 pages, a fun historical fiction story, lots of problematic pieces, but I was happily able to put aside my irritation with the author and enjoy the story for what it was.

Last 250 pages, my irritation redoubled and compounded and I can‘t remember the last time I‘ve finished a book quite this angry at the author.

Someone remind me to stop reading romance novels! They‘re clearly not my genre. Every so often they put me in the best mood ever, so I seem to keep trying, but most of the time have the opposite effect these days! I got all excited after watching the new Brigerton season and decided to reread this. This was better than some I‘ve tried recently, there were laugh out loud funny scenes, and Colin was surprisingly open minded for a man of his era,⬇️

IndoorDame but there was also a huge focus on his temper and how it was worth putting up with because she was so in love with him that I guess I didn‘t really notice when I first read this 15 years ago, but now 🤯🤬 sticking to the Shondaland version. 7d
lil1inblue I struggle with romance novels as well. Every once in a while I hit on one that I really like, but it's hard to find! 7d

Cuilin Yeah, I tried to read the Bridgerton books and was not successful. I totally prefer the Shondaland version. 7d
IndoorDame @Cuilin oh well, I do love the Shondaland version, and I‘m totally looking forward to the end of this season next month 😁 6d
Cuilin @IndoorDame I can‘t believe they only gave us four episodes. They must make haste and drop the others. 6d
IndoorDame @Cuilin yeah, not a fan of this schedule! I‘d much prefer one a week to half the season then a month wait for the other half 6d
zezeki I also struggle with romance, I don't enjoy most of them, but every once in a while I come across something that I really enjoy, so I'm not ready to give up on the genre yet. But I did give up on Bridgerton series after finishing Duke and I when season 1 came out. 😅 6d

My #doublespin this month was so much fun! It‘s rare I find an Agatha Christie I don‘t enjoy, but that also makes it rare for one of her‘s to be especially standout. I can‘t say exactly what it is that makes this one join the ranks of my favorite Christie‘s any more than I could have solved the mystery ahead of Miss Marple, but it‘s definitely something I‘ll keep pondering. @TheAromaofBooks

Finally starting to get a little strength back after several crazy draining weeks causing a major flare. But I‘m still trying to spend most of my time in bed so I don‘t overdo it and end up right back where I started. Luckily kitty and Miss Marple are helping me out. This is one of the most all consuming stories I‘ve picked up in months! Just read 100 pages straight through without even noticing!

Sense and Sensibility | Jane Austen

I connect to, and fall in love with, something different in each of Jane‘s books, but this is one of the few where I connect to the leading women in a way that I actually see whispers of myself in them and their actions. I know I always say I‘ve just read my favorite, but I actually think it may be true this time 😂 I‘m slowly rereading all her works so eventually I‘ll get back to you also on my favorite at 41.

LiteraryinLawrence I feel that way about some of Austen‘s work too! I think this one and P&P are the ones I can reread and always find something new. 2w

Wide Sargasso Sea | Jean Rhys

I found this opened up even more with a second read. I get why this isn‘t a popular book on Litsy, but I like experimental fiction & poetic writing & I‘m so impressed by what Rhys was able to do with Antoinette & Rochester‘s characters. The way she was able to open up their backstories, make them each both sympathetic & callous, and leave you in sync with the source story but also have things still feel ambiguous. #hashtagbrigade @BarkingMadRead

BarkingMadRead Well said! There are definitely parts I didn‘t like, but that is usually the case with most books. Overall, I enjoyed it, even the characters you love to hate 2w
lil1inblue This is probably one of my favorite books. I love what Rhys did with it. Just fascinating. 2w

When you nostalgia watch a 90s movie loosely based on one of your favorite 80s books, and then get hit with insomnia you clearly have to reread the original book. Or relisten, if the audio is all that‘s available on Libby in the middle of the night. It holds up surprisingly well for a light teen read written in 1972.

I had my last tutoring session yesterday with a student who‘s been reading this on and off all year to practice his Hebrew decoding skills, but leaving it in the middle of a chapter was driving me crazy 🤪 and reading children‘s books is good for my language skills, so I pulled it off the shelf and read it for my own amusement this morning 😄

2. I‘m hoping the world becomes kinder, one of my students experienced some serious antisemitism from a kid in another class yesterday, which I think was meant as a mean spirited joke, but has left me reeling. I‘m hoping people prioritize peace and humanitarian needs over politics and ideology. ⬇️

Broken Horses: A Memoir | Brandi Carlile
post image

#TuesdayTunes

While listening to this memoir the last few weeks I kept thinking about the fact that I actually became a Brandi Carlile fan because my bff and I went to an Indigo Girls concert at a tiny venue in Main somewhere during their Despite our Differences tour, and she was their opening act. And while I liked her set, what actually captured me and got me to buy her cd and go back and listen to her music more carefully was that she sang ⬇️

IndoorDame a third harmony line to a lot of Amy and Emily‘s songs, which was such cool twist on music we knew really well! I‘ve been looking for recordings of the three of them singing together this week and I think that show was too small for there to be any recordings of it, but I‘ve found a few things from other shows on that tour and a bunch of more recent stuff. ⬇️ 3w

Frida's Bed: A Novel | Slavenka Drakulic

This is a brief fictional biography of Frida Kahlo, told entirely from inside her own mind, focusing mostly on her relationship with Diego Rivera, and her chronic illnesses. Drakulić and I don‘t have the same vision of Frida, but I can tell this story was incredibly well crafted because instead of dismissing it I found myself alternately questioning my own vision, and arguing with the author inside my head. #bookspin

There were definitely moments in her life that I connected with, but in many ways for all her celebrity, this is just the story of a life. I would really recommend this (especially on audio) for people who are already fans of her music. Because what really struck me here, was hearing the stories behind songs I already knew well, and listening to her sing the songs she‘d just been discussing writing and performing at the end of each chapter.

I‘m so fickle. I think whichever Austen I‘m reading at the moment always becomes my favorite Austen all over again, until I pick up another 😂

AmyG Lovely book. 4w
IndoorDame @AmyG I love used books! Most boring cover ever, but such a treasure inside. It‘s a 1950s edition. They did a run with about half of the first illustrator‘s watercolor pages. 4w

I don‘t know if I‘ll manage to read a new one of her‘s for #AAM or not, but I‘m really glad I decided to start by rereading this because I found it much more affecting the second time, and I also found I was better able to to approach it inquisitively several more years post pandemic as life is actually snapping back to normal. I also think her books may work better for me in print than on audio. @Soubhiville

mcctrish I just heard a reference to this book and how post pandemic the author doesn‘t feel like this story could be a possible dystopian reality - we are so not in a collective mindset anymore ( or so many people aren‘t ) I loved this book, my heart is broken 4w
IndoorDame @mcctrish that‘s so interesting! I‘ll have to think more on our collective mindset and this book. But I was definitely thinking about how the pandemic changed my perception of what the actual scope of something like the flu in this novel (and other apocalyptic esque fiction) would actually be, how many orders of magnitude more than something like Covid, how would we actually react to something that frightening?… 4w

1. I finished April with several books that really spoke to me, including Zorrie which has been lingering in my mind in the best way
2. I‘ve been getting back into the habit of listening to music every day #musicheals
3. I got word that a Rabbi I work closely with was involved in a major peace protest action near the Gaza border and I found her words about it really heartening

IndoorDame 4. Sunshine! It‘s one of the rare New England weeks where you can both open the windows and drink hot tea
5. A friend was able to show up on my doorstep when she was having an especially hard night and I was glad she had somewhere to go

Amiable Agree 100% about 4! Although I live in New England and I drink hot tea all year around. It baffles my husband that I can sit on the back porch when it‘s 90 degrees with a mug of tea. 🤷🏻‍♀️🫖☕️ 4w
IndoorDame @Amiable I‘m the same way, but even I think I‘m crazy in the height of summer 🤣 4w

Amiable @IndoorDame I do love my iced tea in the summer, to be sure. But it just doesn‘t feel right to get up and start my day with a big glass of cold tea. 😄 4w
IndoorDame @Amiable totally! iced tea serves a completely separate function, I think of it more like juice or seltzer or something 4w
Suet624 A lovely list. 4w
DebinHawaii A lovely list of joys! 💛💛💛 I think Zorrie is staying with all of us. So good! Thanks for sharing & spreading the joy! 🤗 4w
