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!

#NotBookRelated but who doesn‘t love a true life feel-good story???
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.
Ruthiella Great story! 2h
TrishB Aww ♥️ don‘t watch either, but I know Cowell does a lot for kids and charity. Good luck to her! 2h
Cinfhen It IS a great story @TrishB @Ruthiella ❣️❣️❣️Simon has really mellowed since becoming a father 1h

vivastory @Cinfhen NYRB never disappoints with their covers! What authors does your husband like? 2h
Cinfhen Well, his guilty pleasure authors are Steve Berry and Sharon K. Penman ~ but he mostly reads and enjoys NF history. Especially anything to do with the Crusaders, Templars and Vikings. Any recommendations???? 2h

(Day 17 - #KinkyAfro)

*Angela Davis sports a “Kinky Afro” for real to this very day. My earliest memories of big Afros are of her in her youth: when she was involved with the Black Panthers; when she was jailed for her part in the Soledad Brothers hostage situation; and when she was fired from her position at UCLA (twice), and subsequently rehired after intervention from the Board of Regents. Davis was born in Birmingham, ⬇️

gradcat ⬆️ (Cont.) which was a region that experienced extreme violence, particularly where she lived, which was dubbed “Dynamite Hill.” The name came about because of the frequent bombing of middle-class black family homes in the 1950s. 10h
arlenefinnigan YES! Excellent choice ✊ 9h
