#Booked2022

Mehso-so

I‘ve binged this trilogy through a lazy Sunday evening and a day of travel and am claiming this as my #booked2022 option. Truthfully these were not great reads, slightly sloppy writing, mad plot on mad plot line but also compelling like eating sour fizzy sweets

Cinfhen I haven‘t read her before…what else do u recommend ??? 9mo
jenniferw88 @Cinfhen I've read 2 others by her - A is for Arsenic (about Agatha Christie and the poisons she uses in her novels) and Death by Shakespeare (about his methods of killing his characters). There's also books about vampires, James Bond, scientific molecules and elements, but I haven't read them yet! 9mo
jenniferw88 @Cinfhen the James Bond and Molecule ones aren't available in paperback yet. 9mo

Excellent Women | Barbara Pym

Thanks to @TheBookHippie for this fun insightful rec! I really enjoyed the intricacies of the platonic and romantic relationships, as well as the humour and tensions found in a faith and neighbourhood community, which totally ties into my background. It felt very “small town,” though it was set in London. The post-War thread was interesting, and I appreciated the subtle presence of the queer characters. #AuldLangSpine #Booked2022 #AuthorNotLIving

Singout I totally have to give this to my mother now. Seventy years later and on the other side of the Atlantic the jumble sale drama is real. (edited) 13mo
TheBookHippie I loved this one more than I thought I would. It was a #pemberlitten read. 13mo
Singout What group is that? 13mo

Singout My mother woke me up with a phone call today asking if I want a piece of “art” that I‘ve never seen that my grandparents‘ friends brought back from Mexico over 60 years ago before it goes to the jumble sale next weekend… 11mo
TheBookHippie @Singout I missed that!! It is a Jane Austen like -we've read all the Jane Austen together already twice I think- group called #pemberlittens I now do @Barkingmadreads #hashtagbrigade reads look at the hashtags!! 9mo
Singout Wow, looks like fun! I was looking just yesterday to see if I could get my mom Excellent Women for her birthday. 9mo
Singout @TheBookHippie My mother loved it, and mailed it today to my sister in England for Christmas! Thank you again! The gift that keeps on giving. 3mo
TheBookHippie @Singout oh how lovely!!!! I‘m so glad! 3mo

This was my last book of 2023 and my last book for #booked2022! A rollicking story about the Amazons filled with history (well researched), travel, intrigue and of course, strong, intelligent women! I bought this book years ago because I could not resist a heroine named Diana. A fast paced, fun read. Thanks to the challenge,it is now checked off my #TBR list! #nonpatriarchalsociety #ReadingAfrica2022

Cinfhen Happy New Year!!! Congrats on completing #Booked2022 🥳🎉💜 14mo
