CarolynM Wow! I don't think I know any of those songs. I'm really not a 90's music fan 10mo
TrishB Art of Noise 👍🏻 10mo
Cathythoughts ♥️♥️♥️ 10mo
mreads #4 you got a what? 😁 loved that! And Duran Duran ❤ 10mo
Nute Love this list! 10mo
Reagan Love Secret by Madonna! I have a Madonna tattoo 😬 not a picture a song name and date I saw her (3rd row ❤️) 10mo
Reggie @Centique I was the nerd who could on the dance floor. Lol 10mo
Reggie @batsy Back, back, back and forth....Rock the boat is my favorite but that happens in the next decade. 10mo
Reggie These hips didn‘t lie way before Shakira came along. 10mo
Reggie @CarolynM That‘s ok. I‘ve discovered so much from you ladies in Australia and Europe. 10mo
Reggie @mreads ayo sweetie, you‘re lookin kinda pretty what‘s a girl like you doin in this rough city.... lol 10mo
Reggie @Reagan-reads you know what song I really loved and had no business loving back then. Bad Girl, drunk by six, kissing someone else‘s lips, smokes too many cigarettes a day not happy when I act this way. I was a nerd who played trumpet. Lol, anyways. That‘s awesome. What song and did you manage to get some Madonna sweat on you? 10mo
Reagan @Reggie I have Nothing Fails and also loved Bad Girl! I‘ve seen her 6 times, last time on the Re-invention tour and I dressed up as Like a Virgin era Madonna 😁 10mo
Gezemice 90ies is my fave music era but I go more with the alternatives: Soundgarden, Nin, Garbage. I do love 90ies Madonna, however. Ray of Light is my favorite. 10mo

#90sSpringFling The 90‘s were pretty easy on me. Music. High school. Beginning of college. Nothing too crazy. I got top five personalities my sophomore year (sadly I do not appear on that list again, lol) while probably getting worst personality at home. Teenagers whatcha gonna do?

Cinfhen Awesome!!! Cutie❣️❣️I love a band guy 😁 10mo

Reggie @Centique Thank you, Paula. 😊 Whatever happened to cello guy? 10mo
Centique @Reggie aw he was lovely, but a senior so I didn‘t stand a chance - also I finally figured out he was gay a couple years later... I have great taste, only ever fell for the nice guys 😍😉 10mo

BookNAround Loved this book! 2y
BookishMe @BookNAround Vikram Seth's? It was part of a huge pile of preloved books and has been highly recommended. Hope to read it soon. On the other hand, Jhumpa Lahiri captivated me with her story 2y
BookNAround @BookishMe Yes, I meant the Seth. I do love Lahiri too but I haven‘t read the pictured book so can‘t claim to love it yet. 2y

BookishMe @BookNAround that was the first book I read by her and will remain etched. 2y
lorourke An Equal Music is one of my favourite books. Re-read it often. Have a weird obsession with buying second-hand copies if i see them. Feel it is not a book that should be sitting waiting to be bought. 2y

Uff!!! I thought I'll love reading this book. But particularly I find myself uninvolved with the plot and I don't even want to finish it. But then also I finished reading this one. I certainly didn't like it at all... 😑😐

So there's Murakami that comes to mind for #booksbyasianauthors - but for me Vikram Seth absolutely stand out, I've read everything by him, fiction, non-fiction & his incredible poetry.

An Equal Music is one of my all-time-favs. It brings together my fascination with classical music, my love of London and most of all - a well written deeply moving love story ❤️🎶

btw - does anyone recognize the bookmark?? Denver's finest 💎


Godmotherx5 I've only read A Suitable Boy. I think it took me a full year to read. 3y

Everyone raves about 'A Suitable Boy' but my favorite Vikram Seth's work is this one. It's a love story set against the backdrop of music.. Can't expect a better combination. I'm a day late for the #augustofpages day 21.. But I couldn't pass on posting about this favorite of mine. #musicandbook #indianauthor

mllemay I loved this book! 3y
ReadingEnvy I so love this book. I own more than one copy!! 3y
LauraBrook This books is excellent! I remember there were certain passages where he describes how it feels to play and they were 💯% accurate! Do you have the soundtrack for the book too? It's v good, has all the music they play! 3y

SusanInTiburon A book with a soundtrack? Too cool. 3y
BookishFeminist Adding this to my list. I just grabbed A Suitable Boy from the library and it's so long 😱😳 3y
ramyasbookshelf @BookishFeminist I somehow couldn't get in to that at all! It was just too long winded for me. Have been meaning to re-read it sometime to see if I change my opinion.. 3y
ramyasbookshelf @LauraBrook I had no clue there was a sound track! That's so awesome! 3y
LauraBrook It's a double cd soundtrack and it's great! Well worth the sticker pice of you can find a copy, especially if you love this book! 3y
