Yup. There‘s a reason he was my mom‘s #mancrush for many years. First, he‘s Welsh like we are. Although our connection is generations back. Second, he‘s handsome, rebellious, and those eyes ... myohmy. I had to pick up this find at Dollar Tree this afternoon. The only copy left, so I took the ripped cover and gave it some pathetic repair attention.

azulaco I saw him about ten years ago at the 9:30 Club in Washington DC. Still a great showman! After I saw him perform, I thought “Oh, NOW I get it!” 😆 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @azulaco Oh man! I would love to hear him live. Now I need to go YouTube him. 🎵🎶 2y
Bookladylinda I remember watching his TV show at my grandparents and the women would throw their panties on stage! 😂 2y

LeahBergen My Mom always moaned and groaned about him, too. 😂😂 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Bookladylinda OMG. Yes. I forgot about that! 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @LeahBergen He was a big deal back in the day! I wish my mom was around so I could tell her the stories from his book. 2y
lynneamch Oh, what fun reading these comments. I remember watching him on my tiny TV in my dorm room at Western Michigan U. Aah. 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @lynneamch Memories ... 🎶🎵🎶 2y
Hokey He is a pretty man. 2y
NCNY I mainly know him as the man who sings the songs that Carlton dances to on Fresh Prince of Bel Air. He is quite foxy! (edited) 2y
Savugirl I saw him in concert and he was amazing. Such an entertainer. 2y
LeeRHarry My grandma read this and loved it - my grandparents used to sit in their back garden and could hear him singing in their local - she knew Tom's Mum! 😊 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @LeeRHarry That‘s so cool! And I‘m glad to know your grandma loved it. One review I read said that he‘s still somewhat humble and connected to his roots. 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @NCNY Haha! I forgot about Carlton. I‘ll have to YouTube those dancing moments also! 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Savugirl He‘s stood the test of time—still performing! 2y

Long Way Down | Jason Reynolds
post image

Thank you to @Cortg for this fabulous book recommendation ❤️1. Jason Reynolds is the BEST medicine for a migraine....his voice is soothing & lyrical...I will listen to him all day, everyday 🙌🏻2. Trevor Noah you have some VERY tough competition...my #mancrush has just shifted... 3. The ending of this novel 😡😝 took it from five stars to four but still a 5 ⭐️ narration 4. Poetry rocks 😎5. Random thoughts are awesome 6.Migraines suck 🤕

Hooked_on_books I actually found the ending somewhat ambiguous. Which of course can be good or bad depending on your point of view. I hope he didn‘t end up doing it. 2y
Cinfhen I agree; it was too ambiguous @Hooked_on_books which is why I didn‘t like it😡I don‘t like loose ends...and I‘m thinking he did not go through with it #optimist 😁 2y
Cortg Yay! I‘m glad you enjoyed it! BTW, Trevor Noah is writing a 2nd memoir 😉 2y

AmyG Feel better. I can‘t imagine anyone tooping Trevor Noah. 2y
tonyahoswalt I feel for you. I have chronic migraines, and am coming down from a three day one that was one of the worst yet, and I've been having them for years. On the topic of the book, I've been wanting to read this. Maybe I'll put it on hold today. 2y
Tamra Book is so so good. Migraine is so so bad. 😫 (edited) 2y

mrp27 He's definitely a favorite of mine. Dying to get to this book. 2y
ElishaLovesBooks I hope you‘re feeling better! At first I really disliked the ending because I hate loose ends too. But I then I thought about the awesome discussions that could come from the not knowing and I felt better about it 😊😉 2y
Cinfhen Yes, I can see how this would make for great discussion...I love that u read this with your class🙌🏻💚 @ElishaLovesBooks 2y
ElishaLovesBooks Thanks @Cinfhen We really try to choose relevant books that we think the kids will like! 2y

Day 14 : Man Crush. Neville Longbottom is one of my all time favourite characters, and let's be honest, Matthew Lewis turned out to be delightful to look at. #mancrush #octphotochallenge @LibrarianRyan

Brideshead Revisited | Evelyn Waugh

I was head over heels for Charles Ryder at 14. I read the book maybe a month before I watched the series on Masterpiece Theatre. My little crew of girlfriends would just swoon over him! Sebastian too, but Charles (Jeremy Irons c. 1981) was the living end. #mancrush #octphotochallenge

I could honestly name a bunch of fictional characters here, but am I the only one who finished this great non-fiction book with a bit of a crush on the quirky nerdy Bill? #ManCrush #OctPhotoChallenge

Maybe it was just me?

Holy Cow: A Novel | David Duchovny
post image

I'm a little late on this one but I had to get it in David Duchovny has been my #mancrush since the first episode on The X-files aired on television. Recently he started writing books and I love him even more. #octphotochallenge

BookishFeminist Oh damn, good morning 😯 3y
Magpiegem Mine too, my walls were covered in posters of him! But I had no idea he is writing! 3y
Qemorio @Magpiegem both of his books are so good the first is really funny. The second has a lot of baseball in it which I know nothing about but it's so well written it didn't matter. Also has funny bits. MUST put them in you TBR list. 3y
Magpiegem Thanks @Qemorio I will!! 😊 3y
Dragon Agent Mulder was awesome 👏 3y

My belated #mancrush for #octphotochallenge. I absolutely adore Jem, and although tbh I ship Tessa, Jem and Will together (OT3 ftw) Jem will always be my true love

LuiHerondale OT3 is the best :D 3y

Anne of the Island | Lucy M. Montgomery

Day 14 of #octphotochallenge and of course my #mancrush is Gilbert Blythe when he's a little older in Anne of the Island. He always seemed so perfect to me, even now. I even hated Anne for not seeing it at first...
