Travel writing has the potential to lend a #helpinghand to potential travelers, but travel fiction needs to make sure that it gets the culture of the destination right, and isn't looking at it through a distorted lens. I couldn't really tell if the tagged novel is critiquing this aspect as its travel writer MC navigates a murder mystery in Calcutta or something that should be criticized for that reason. The lovely photo is from the film Repulsion.
Scarlett O‘Hara is a great #FemaleLead even though she didn‘t want to lend a #HelpingHand during war. She can be awful but I love her! I loved her the first time I saw the movie when I was 14. (Even as my aunt told me she hated her😝)
Since I‘m reading it she is on my brain a lot lol! She had resting b***ch face before it had a name!
#MarchIntoOz #ReadingResolutions #HelpingHand #FemaleLead Working from home & lunch is a bowl of leftover Vegetable Soup with Salmon & Pearl Couscous.?❤️ While perusing one of the #ARCs that came in my #bookmail yesterday, I saw that the lead character (Delilah) lends a helping hand--taking in "women shattered by abuse, poverty, illness, or events beyond their control." So she & this book work for two photo challenge prompts today. #multitasking
I hate the movie tie-in cover of this book but I'll live with it for now. The book itself is a priceless account of the moral and spiritual consequences of the death penalty in the United States.
Helen Prejean lends a #helpinghand in the form of spiritual advice and counsel that she provides to Patrick Sonnier, a convicted killer on death row.

#Scariestvillain the Wicked Witch of the West tries a spell with her own #helpinghand, but Dorothy, Glinda's magic will keep you #inyourshoes, because you're the #femalelead. You can't go #backtothefuture, but you can go back to Kansas. 😊🌈 #marchintooz #magicalmarch #readingresolutions #marchmadness #March80sMovies
