Velvetfur Ooohhh lots of fab Kate goodies! I've always loved her image and the way she presents herself, I must listen to more of her music, I only know the famous songs from over the years... Thanks for the inspiration! Very pretty book covers btw 😊 1y
Cathythoughts She is amazing 👍🏻 1y
Cinfhen So, I just stalked your TBR on Litsy...is it up to date!??I know somebody has a birthday soon & im happy to share some books I own.... (edited) 1y
TrishB @matthieumcintosh true enough 😁 1y
TrishB @Velvetfur start with Hounds of Love.....the second side (obviously I was brought up with vinyl) is the best side of her songs (and up there with any of the best) ever... 1y
TrishB @Cathythoughts she is ❤️ 1y
TrishB @Cinfhen it actually is! I updated due to the poetry swap I‘m in. ❤️ 1y
Velvetfur @TrishB I was brought up with vinyl too, I know what you mean! I remember that album title, it's one of her most famous ones I presume, thanks for the recommendation! 😀 1y
Cinfhen Excellent 😘 1y
batsy Who doesn't, to be honest? 😁💜 Love this selection! 1y

I had a #Fascination with this book a few years ago. Teege discovers by random accident that her grandfather is the notorious Austrian Nazi concentration camp commander and war criminal Amon Göth.

Kalalalatja I had forgotten about this, but it sounds so interesting! 1y
Cinfhen I‘ve been meaning to read this one!! I went through a Holocaust #fascination too 💔 1y

#SeptemberDanes Thanks to Madeline Miller, I have a new #fascination for Greek Mythology re-telling. I ordered the tagged book from #BOTM 🤞🏼🤞🏼hoping it‘s half as good as Circe & Song of Achilles.

Kalalalatja I haven‘t read this, but I have heard great things about it. Atwood‘s take on the Odyssey 👍 1y
TrishB I have 2 of them ready to read but not got to them yet! Eventually.... 1y
Kimberlone I also have recently read both of the Miller books which inspired me to get this month‘s #BOTM pick of 1y

So this summer I had a #fascination(obsession ?) with raising Monarch Butterflies. This book was a great resource and I highly recommend it if you are interested in this project. I successfully raised and released 17 butterflies from eggs I found in my garden. The last 7 were tagged and hopefully heading to Mexico!

LeahBergen Oh, how cool!! 😮 1y
britt_brooke 💛🦋 1y
Kalalalatja That is so cool! 👏🦋 1y

I don't read as much nonfiction as fiction, however a great nonfiction book can be every bit as magnificent as a novel. Above are a few that I've read in the past year that really stand out. The authors knowledge, dedication, investigative spirit & #fascination with their subjects shines through.
@Cinfhen @Kalalalatja

Mdargusch I loved Blitzed!!! 1y
vivastory @Mdargusch It was a really unique take on WW2, which is no small feat considering how much has been written/said about it. 1y
Kalalalatja I have only read I‘ll be Gone in the Dark, but I want to read the other three at some point! 1y

Joy0201 I LOVED Ghostland. 1y
Cinfhen I actually prefer NF to fiction...but I haven‘t read ANY of these yet!!! (edited) 1y
vivastory @Kalalalatja Ghostland would be a great October read! 1y
vivastory @Joy0201 Same here. I need to read his other books. 1y
vivastory @Cinfhen I didn't know you preferred NF. I highly recommend all of them! 1y
Billypar Was looking for a new audio non-fiction since I just finished one, so I'm getting Blitzed (pun intended 🙄). And put a hold on Ghostland. Thanks for the reccs! 1y
vivastory @Billypar I look forward to hearing your thoughts on them! This is the perfect time to read Ghostland 1y

When her husband gets a job with Lego, journalist Helen leaves her London job to accompany him to Jutland and freelance while investigating what it is that makes Denmark the happiest country in the world. This book is basically a series of lifestyle pieces on life in Denmark tied together with the story of the couple's first year in their new country. #Fascination would describe how I've felt about reading it while in Denmark. #SeptemberDanes

Kalalalatja I have thought about picking this up, mostly to see what a Denmark looks like from an outside perspective 👍 1y
Cinfhen Fun!! 1y
Cathythoughts You lucky duck ! I can‘t wait to go there 😍 1y
