My #currentread is not letting me forget that I missed yesterday's Madonna song prompt 😃
@Cinfhen

Cinfhen Hahaha!!! Perfect 👌🏾 4d

Billypar @Cinfhen This month is really making me aware of how many mid to late career Madonna hits I've never heard (at least based on the titles). I need to check out the spotify list- might have that be my soundtrack while working today ☺ 4d
Blaire Hope you‘re enjoying Howard‘s End. I loved it. 4d
Cinfhen Oh good!!! A little Madonna never hurt anyone 💋 4d
Billypar @Blaire It's so good: I'm about halfway through and really enjoying it. I don't pick up British classics very often, and this is not at all what I was expecting. 4d

Oh what a beautiful read! 🥰
So many surprises and events i didn't expect to happen but i am so glad that it ended, relatively, happily for Margaret and Helen 🥰
I would most definitely read this again in the future!

I got to chapter 18 of 'Howards End' and realised i hadn't actually been focusing on the book like i should have so i restarted it, and it's been a slow read because of lifes distractions (CHILDREN HAHA) but it's proving worth it!
I'm enjoying this novel very much! I can't wait to read more by E.M Forster! ☺️🥰

Nute Trust me...you will find that it is well worth the read!🙂 4w

Last months book club read (I‘m a bit behind!) Jumping from dystopia to classic has been challenging but a nice change - I do love a classic! I‘ve enjoyed the themes of femininity and class vs culture that are explored in this one but feel they could‘ve been developed a bit further. I‘ve really enjoyed the characters and how they develop too.

#BlackIsTheColor #NoFemmeber I asked Rhiannon Giddens to pick out a few selections for a stack the color of her true love's hair. There is a good variety of material here, but happy love stories aren't well-represented (haven't read Howard's End yet, but doesn't sound like it 😀). So, Giddens' tune will have to fill that void, a song that is impossible not to dance to- you can feel her joy in singing about her love, and it is contagious. @Cinfhen

Leftcoastzen She‘s wonderful! I have been to her shows , twice with Carolina Chocolate Drops and twice on her own. (edited) 12mo
Billypar That's awesome- I would love to see her live! I only first heard of her after her last album, so I'm going to have to keep an eye out next time she tours. 12mo

Two sisters, so very much alike and yet so very different. It is their relationship that propels the story. There is a second family dynamic and though they are the folks of telegrams and industry, the energy of decision making, I found that family unlikeable. It is difficult to fathom how one family can fit inside the other. E.M. Forster captures beauty, intelligence and depth of an artistic soul in the characters of the two sisters.👇🏽

Nute They burst upon the page at the talent of the author, and, oh my, is the author skilled. Some of the passages are as lovely as any well-structured passages I have read, though through the narrator he does digress into unnecessary and lengthy sidebars.👇🏽 (edited) 1y
Nute He pulls a great amount of opinion into the story, but that is necessary to upset placid thinking about the social, economic, materialistic, idealistic, pragmatic, philosophical, cultural, gender and class forces.👇🏽 (edited) 1y
Nute Money, women‘s rights, individual empowerment, economic conditions, political upheavals…it‘s all here. How do we see the world? Is it not the contemplation of art, music and literature and the cultivation of relationships that will always serve to counterbalance the direction and end result of advancing industry and technology?👇🏽

Nute Maybe it forces one to examine with compromise that money does makes the world go round, but surely we lose some type of spiritual connection if that is our only focus. It is a brilliant novel, ahead of it‘s time, and remaining relevant today. Highly recommended! (edited) 1y

I enjoyed this book and felt it was ahead of its time as far as some women‘s and social issues are concerned. I liked the intellectualism as well as still mostly happy outlook on life as this was pre-WWI. I think the theme of this book is connection and also felt the “now” quite strongly. I felt some of the syntax to be muddled or particular to the timeframe and I‘m comfortable reading a range of authors as i have a BA in Eng. but it might be me.

Saturday morning. Still taking my time with this book. I advance a few paragraphs and then regress several pages because life lessons are dripping from every page and I want to saturate my soul.

So pretty! These are Penguin English library paperbacks. I‘ve seen the hardback versions, and I know a lot of people on here have them. I‘d never seen the paperbacks before, but apparently they‘ve been out just as long as the hardbacks...
I didn‘t stroke them all, honestly!

A classic that I am glad I finally got around to reading. I chose it for a #5book5bingo book over 105 years old. It talked a lot about how people should and did act in England at the turn of the century, which is now not relevant. But the way people act and interact is timeless.

Loving this book so far. Only about 45 pages in ,but it's such an easy read. Felt the exact same thing with A Room With a View. I'm immediately into the story and want to know more. Love his humour. I know mostly what happens because I watched the movie a while ago, but they always change a bit and I don't remember everything anyways!

I may just have been too young to appreciate it, but I read A Room with a View in high school and remember only being equal parts bored and annoyed. Then I read Zadie Smith's On Beauty in college, loved it, and read that it was inspired by Howards End -- and I am happy I gave Forster another chance by reading this book. The film with Emma Thompson, Helena Bonham Carter, and Anthony Hopkins certainly helped matters :)
