#30JuneBooks : #PrettyBooks
For me, every book is beautiful and this is one of them, beautiful both inside and out 😍 Read it last year (wish I read it earlier) & it has such an impact on me! Tolstoy‘s writing about Life, Love, Death & Politics are insightful & beautiful, so relatable despite it was written hundred years ago. And this #VintageClassics is so gorgeous!

Simona If you have time in your reading life, and if you read nonfiction - his nonfiction works are almost more interesting than his fiction books. Great look in his thought process, his spiritual journey, politics, society, religion ... 5mo
BooknerdsLife @Simona Thank you for the suggestion 🙏🏼☺️💕 TBH I don‘t normally read non fiction but I‘m really interested in his works and might do some research and try to look into his non fiction works in between my never ending TBR 😅 5mo

Vera | Elizabeth Von Arnim
post image

What starts as a comedy of manners accelerates at the midpoint into a gripping psychological-noir.

Written in 1921 Elizabeth Von Arnim‘s marital-chiller Vera predates Daphne Du Maurier‘s Rebecca by 16 years and makes for a fascinating comparison.

Congrats on your Litsy milestone @DGRachel & thanks for the #ShareTheLitsyLove giveaway. The genre I love the most is not really a genre, but I call it #spinsterlit. Books featuring odd women alone; outsiders because they're too passionate, too quiet, too good. Some just want to be a witch in the woods. These are women who don't adjust to society & I find that fascinating. Recommending these books is interesting; people have varied reactions 😬

JaclynW I love your genre description! I'm sold. 😊 I haven't read any of these. 2y
kalinichta I absolutely want #spinsterlit to be a real genre. 2y
quietjenn Yes! I ❤️ this non-genre, too. 2y

batsy @JaclynW Thanks 😁 When done well they're really some of my favourite books. 2y
JaclynW @batsy Have you watched A Quiet Passion on Netflix? It's about Emily Dickinson. I like it for all the reasons you listed above in your description. I think this fits in your #spinsterlit (but real life obviously). You might like it. 2y
Jas16 This should totally be a genre. Love this 2y
readordierachel ❤ everything about this post 2y
batsy @JaclynW I've been meaning to but I haven't yet! Thank you for the reminder; love anything Dickinson and it sounds right up my street ☺ 2y

LeahBergen I‘m so in the Spinster Lit fan club. 👏🏻👏🏻 2y
batsy @LeahBergen Thank you, I was just gonna suggest that we all start a We Love Spinsters club. But I think we should stick to the name Spinster Lit fan club instead 😂😂💜 2y

Westwood was written by the author of Cold Comfort Farm. The main character is Margaret Steggles, who everyone thinks of as a plain, bookish girl and to whom no one pays much attention.

I remember certain details of this book, but what stands out for me is that this is a book with a lot of heart. A slow burner of a book and something just a little bit different.

Mamashep Ermagawd - I loved Cold Comfort Farm. Will have to get this one! 2y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled CCF has been lurking in my TBR for a while. This one looks good too! 2y
Libby1 @Mamashep - this one is more subdued but just as clever and as heartfelt. 2y

Libby1 @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled - it has a quirky, very British humour. I didn't get it at first but once I did I loved it! 2y
LeahBergen Oooo! I'll be needing this one. 2y
Libby1 @LeahBergen - I hope you'll like it! 2y
RidgewayGirl I loved Cold Comfort Farm! I'll have to find a copy of this. 2y

"Oh, Jo. Jo, you have so many extraordinary gifts; how can you expect to lead an ordinary life? You‘re ready to go out and – and find a good use for your talent. Tho‘ I don‘t know what I shall do without my Jo. Go, and embrace your liberty. And see what wonderful things come of it."

The Handmaid's Tale | Margaret Atwood

Very good. Hard reading at times but it was worth it. Even though some may find the ending frustrating it suits the story as to have 'perfect' ending would not be in tone with the book. Also I liked how the author talked directly at you making sure you are aware that certain things have been told from memory and therefore may be distorted. Recommend.📖📚

bookishrose I loved this one 2y
Jack-Cade I loved this also. I've yet to read a Murakami that I didn't like. 1Q84, Kafka on the Shore....they are all incredible. A Nobel candidate for sure. 2y
