I have always been fascinated and impressed by authors who can write a book that is still read hundreds of years after its publication. To be the #creator of such a book deserves some respect, even though I might not always love the book itself. 📚


mreads Gorgeous set 😀 13mo
Mitch I was listening to Barbara Kingsolver last night and MiddleMarch is her favourite book and she reads it once every three years for inspiration! 13mo
JazzFeathers I agree. And l'm so jealous of this collection of yours. 13mo

Kalalalatja @mreads @JazzFeathers @youneverarrived @Reviewsbylola I *might* have wanted to show them off, and then tried to make them fit a prompt, but don‘t tell 🤫😁 @Mitch how awesome! I can imagine she is a great talker! @CrowCAH 🙌🙌 13mo
Billypar It's true- I'm always struck when I read something in a classic that is stated so elegantly and still has so much relevance for life today. 13mo

#creator for #nofemmeber means enjoying the creator in me and the creator in Joni Mitchell http://jonimitchell.com/music/song.cfm?id=83 “Rows and floes Of angel hair, and ice cream castles in the air...”

starlight97 Love the cover 😍 13mo
Billypar What a great title- I feel like a friendly literary grandparent type is going to sit with me on a porch and show me how to tap into my inspiration 😃 13mo
Cinfhen I‘d buy this book strictly for the cover💕 13mo

I love a dense biography of a favourite author/creator and this one from 1993 is very thorough and confirmed my love of du Maurier - although it‘s been years since I read it. I wonder how it would read now.

Cinfhen Great collage ~ like your #authorcrush 13mo
LeahBergen Oh, I should check this out as I like Margaret Forster. Have you read her novel about Elizabeth Barrett Browning‘s maid? I loved it. 13mo
Centique @LeahBergen oooh that sounds wonderful! #stacked 13mo

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I love her so!!! 13mo
Billypar I think bios are especially interesting for authors or artists of darker content because you always wonder if anything drew them towards that subject matter. 13mo
batsy Ooh, I love me a dense bio of a favourite "creator" too... Gotta stack ? 13mo
Centique @Billypar totally agree! 13mo

For Parth and Lavinia #Forever seems to be impossible, but trust @EloisaJames, the #creator of the Wilde series, to make the MCs find out how good they actually are for each other.

I struggled to like Parth for more than 2/3 of the book. I also rolled my eyes at some of Lavinia's decisions. Still, they got their HEA and I liked that Lavinia was such a strong and independent woman.

julesG PS: I love Lady Knowe! 13mo
Cinfhen Nice blurb/ review 😀 13mo
Billypar Great summary! Sometimes authors create characters who are so good that they get on your nerves like real people 😋 13mo

JazzFeathers I want to read her books just looking at her covers! Did she write Speak Easy too? I do own that one, but haven't read it yet. I've been eyeing Radiance 😁 13mo

Moray_Reads @JazzFeathers and haven't read that one, but yes she wrote it. Radiance is just brilliant. Such a clever, complex book 13mo
Kalalalatja Love Catherynne Valente 🙌🙌 13mo
Cinfhen I was thinking the same thing @JazzFeathers @toric Those covers are all amazing 😍 13mo
Billypar "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy meets Eurovision"...well this sounds like an interesting one! ? 13mo
Moray_Reads @Billypar probably the most accurate comparison ever 13mo

I Capture the Castle | Dodie Smith
post image

Cassandra Mortmain is such a vivid #creator—it made this story a joy to read. Living in a crumbling castle in 1934, 17 year old Cassandra keeps a journal as she tries to wrestle with upheaval in her family. Excellently written and I believe it will lead to a great discussion at our book club Thursday night!


Cinfhen Nice pick for prompt and family book club 😊 13mo
Melissa_J Such a pretty edition! 13mo
Billypar Great pick, and I love that you have a family book club! I find the idea of a single book that all of my family would finish, let alone enjoy, somewhat unlikely 😁 13mo

What‘s in a name? According to Doody, Jane Austen creates characters and settings that hold special meanings. Every name, every place name has a deeper meaning, which, according to Doody, shows Jane‘s cleverness in her writings. I can‘t remember how I got this book, but rediscovering it on my shelves today makes me want to read it immediately. #creator #NoFemmeber

Cinfhen That‘s one of the beautiful things about these challenges!! We get to take inventory of our shelves xx 13mo
zsuzsanna_reads I just looked up Margaret Doody's biography and I can't believe I haven't read more by her. I love her Aristotle series and she has written monographs on Samuel Richardson, Fanny Burney and one called "The True History of the Novel" ? 13mo
MayJasper I like your photo 😊 13mo
