Me | Katharine Hepburn
post image

#MOvember #catchup
When I think of #Iconic I think of Katharine Hepburn. Her talent, her voice, her style, her romances, her (very fudgy) brownie recipe—really her entire life is the very definition of iconic. This book is a favorite of mine.❤️

marleed Oh I have this book. It‘s been on my TBR for quite some time. I don‘t know why I haven‘t read it because even looking at it makes me smile for thoughts of her. 3w

Lee Radziwill had #iconic style, just like her sister Jackie Kennedy 💄 This book contains so many personal photos of hers which I love to pore over... she and her family are endlessly fascinating to me!

The Blind Assassin: A Novel | Margaret Atwood
post image

#iconic #MOvember
I think Atwood is one of our most iconic living authors. One of my early favorite authors when I started getting into reading as an adult.
@Cinfhen

readordierachel Yes! Great choice. 4w
Cinfhen Aside from this Testaments debacle I agree, she is iconic and deserves all the accolades but not this year‘s Booker Prize 🤪 4w
Billypar @readordierachel Definitely a literary rockstar 🙄🎸 4w

Billypar @Cinfhen She's probably my second-most read author but I feel disconnected from all the hype - I want to read it eventually, but there are probably still a few older ones of hers I'd read first. 4w
Cinfhen I need to read Alia Grace this year!!!! 4w
readordierachel @Cinfhen You do! Alias Grace is so good. 4w
Cinfhen @readordierachel hoping to fit it into a challenge box this year!‘maybe #BottomOfYourTBR #Booked2020 4w
Billypar @Cinfhen @readordierachel Weirdly, I'm not a huge Alias Grace fan - I liked it, just not compared to her others (but I'm definitely in the minority on this!). I think my top three are Blind Assassin, Oryx & Crake, and Cat's Eye. 4w
readordierachel Interesting! I've not read Blind Assassin or Cat's Eye yet (I know, I know, and I call myself a fan). I do love the MaddAddam trilogy, def more than Alias Grace, but I still thought the latter was really good. It has a different feel though. Maybe because it's based on a true story? 4w
Billypar @readordierachel Oh, I'm jealous - you've got two really good ones in store! I read all my Atwoods close together (around 2009-2013) so I mostly just remember my broad impressions and not a ton of specifics to back them up. Though maybe the same could be said about what I read last year, lol 😶 4w
readordierachel Ha! Same. 4w
Cinfhen Cat‘s Eye is on my list too and The Blind Assassin was fantastic @readordierachel 4w
Leftcoastzen Nice! 4w

batsy @Billypar @Cinfhen @erzascarletbookgasm I peeked! Well done, you guys 😎 4w
BarbaraBB Wild guess: The curious incident of the dog in the night ?? 4w
BarbaraBB Oh wow, I am a bit proud of myself 😀 4w
Liz_M @Billypar 😉 Close enough! 4w
Liz_M @Cinfhen For my second round, I sorted my goodreads library by most popular 😃 4w
Liz_M @erzascarletbookgasm Yes! And your book tag, unlike most others IS hidden. Weird. 4w
Billypar Mine suggests it is just one curious dog incident in the nighttime among many 😁 4w
Liz_M @BarbaraBB Nice! 4w

ValerieAndBooks Oh! I was close! My (wrong) guess has a similar cover. My cover of Satanic Verses (still TBR!) has a very different cover. 4w
Billypar Satanic Verses! I have the same edition- gorgeous cover. 4w
batsy Oooh it was a group read in the past :) Salman Rushdie, The Satanic Verses 4w
AnansiGirl Satanic Verses? 4w
Cinfhen This looks like a Rushdie 4w
BarbaraBB This must be a Rushdie! I go for my all time favorite The Satanic Verses 4w
BarbaraBB Great choice Liz! 4w
Liz_M @saresmoore Oh no! It was a tough read, but I loved it. 🙂 4w
Liz_M @ValerieAndBooks Oh right, the most popular edition of this does have a very different cover. Nice work guessing the author! 4w
Liz_M @batsy That must have been an excellent group read! 4w
Liz_M @AnansiGirl Well done! 4w
Liz_M @Cinfhen Looks like the author's works are recognizable, even if the exact title isn't. 😁 4w
Liz_M @BarbaraBB yep, I started with posing my favorites, because they should be everyone's favorites. 😆 4w
BarbaraBB I knew it is yours too. So that made this one a bit easier for me 😉 4w

Tamra I don‘t know, but that looks like a Fender Rhodes keyboard, ala early 80s? Ha! Probably not. (I peeked at the answer.) (edited) 4w

batsy Oooh... I don't know! 🧐 4w
Billypar It looks like a piano...but could be part of an organ maybe? I'll go with Phantom of the Opera... no other guesses anyhow. 4w
Liz_M Sigh, 😕 my iconic is everyone else's “huh?“ 😁 (edited) 4w
Billypar Fun to play though👍 I was hoping one of my random guesses would hit the mark but not even close, lol. 4w
Cinfhen I guessed the same as @Billypar 🤪 4w
BarbaraBB I have no idea... the piano reminds me of the horrible The Piano Teacher 4w
BarbaraBB Ooh... haven‘t read this one yet. @vivastory was close! 👍🏼 4w
Liz_M @vivastory Excellen guess! 4w
Liz_M @Tamra Wow, you know enough to talk keyboards! If you like Faust re-tellings where Faust is a composer in 1930s German, this is the book for you! 😉 (edited) 4w
Liz_M @Billypar I love your guesses! 😊 4w
Liz_M @Cinfhen 😁 4w
Liz_M @BarbaraBB I love Faust re-tellings, so I enjoyed it immensely -- with the help of online annotations, of course. (edited) 4w
