#RedRoseSeptember
I‘m so behind (work is insane) so I‘m doing a #quadrupledip to get mostly caught up from the week.
In this Pride and Prejudice retelling, Zuri has a #KinkyAfro & her Bushwick, Brooklyn neighborhood is her #MerseyParadise a place she loves. She & her sister Janae #SitDown on the roof of their building & watch what‘s going on. Zuri has an immediate dislike of Darius Darcy, living #TheLifeOfRiley in his family‘s mini-mansion.🎤😉

arlenefinnigan Wow. A quadruple link is some going! Excellent work. 2mo
Cinfhen Well played 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼and I‘m kind of keen to read this particular retelling 2mo
Cinfhen Hope you have a quieter week 💜 2mo

#RedRoseSeptember

(Day 18 - #MerseyParadise)

*I‘m afraid I took all of the drowning bits literally, e.g., “You can bet your life I‘ll meet a pike who‘ll wolf me down for tea tonight.” I couldn‘t help it—it wouldn‘t get out of my head! Apologies to anyone who is offended by/been beaten over the head with the Bible. I just can‘t resist the idea of a whale vomiting up a human, so....♥️

Cinfhen Ha!!! I love this Bible story 2mo
gradcat @Cinfhen Thanks, Cindy! I never know if I will offend someone with biblical references...but a WHALE 🐋 ...and he VOMITS 🤮 a HUMAN 😂 I can‘t help myself...that line in the song is just too much. I don‘t know the song—I‘m getting a real education here with your & Arlene‘s prompts here. 2mo
Laura317 If I‘m not mistaken, the Bible says Jonah was swallowed by a big fish. I guess the fish has somehow made us all think whale. 2mo

Not set along the Mersey River, but water and rivers play a role in this newest by Kent. Kent has become one of my favorite authors for her writing style and her ability to evoke such raw emotions. I absolutely love Burial Rites, & while this one is excellent, I think BR is still my favorite. This centers around the battle between religion & superstition & a tragedy that ignites investigations into a way of life. #merseyparadise #RedRoseSeptember

Cinfhen I bailed on this one even though I loved Burial Rites. 2mo
Librarybelle @Cinfhen It‘s not for everyone. This one is so tragic, it makes Burial Rites look like a happy story. 2mo
arlenefinnigan Sounds interesting (if heavy going!) 2mo

This series of books is set in Liverpool, following the lives of a group of Irish immigrants. I really like these - not as ‘fluffy‘ as they sound; there‘s some hard-hitting stuff included. Definitely not always a #merseyparadise!

arlenefinnigan Excellent! She's an awful MP though. 2mo

#NotBookRelated but who doesn‘t love a true life feel-good story???
#RedRoseSeptember
#MerseyParadise
First appearing on Britain‘s Got Talent in 2017, Julia was part of the dance troupe Just Us – who later became MerseyGirls. Their performance received the Golden Buzzer. Julia revealed that she had scoliosis & needed surgery which meant never being able to dance again.👇🏼

Cinfhen That is until Simon Cowell paid for her to fly out to the US & undergo a different surgery, not available on the NHS.
On Saturday Julie returned with her dance troupe to BGT The Champions where they are competing for top act.
