Breakfast at Tiffany's | Truman Capote

#ColorMePretty #White
Didn‘t realise I don‘t have many white books at all! Love the movie adaptation of Breakfast At Tiffany‘s too much I‘m scared to read the book since it‘s not exactly the same and I‘m afraid I will end up not liking Holly Golightly from the movie 🙈 But one day, I will be brave enough to read it! 😅

They Were Sisters | Dorothy Whipple, Celia Brayfield

I love Dorothy Whipple💞💞
Her books are warm and cosy. Her plotting is flawless and her characters are well formed and human in their flawed naive goodness, weakness, and wickedness.Immenselyly grateful for Persephone books for introducing me to her brilliant books.

“Let us love for a little while, for a year or so, you and me. That‘s a form of divine drunkenness that we can all try.”

Haven‘t read a short story since taking English in college several years ago ... gotta say, I kind of missed this format! Quick enough to finish in an afternoon, but still leaves you thinking. F. Scott Fitzgerald is always a 💎

I just finished this one today and it was absolutely fantastic. Fitzgerald manages maintain a “Gatsby-like” essence in this book as his description of needless extravagance and material excess is nothing short of mesmerizing. It was like reading a mixture of Gastby, The Most Dangerous Game, and Oceans 11. Such a fun, short read! Only 115 pages!

Ms.Bursey I heard it was super good !! I definitely have to check it out now 7mo
DrSpalding I am proud of your additional readings! I truly enjoyed the Great Gatsby. 7mo

Howl: A Graphic Novel | Allen Ginsberg, Eric Drooker

A tiny cheat for #192019 - Howl was published in 1956 ... but the graphic novel didn‘t happen until 2010 (don‘t quote me). Still, I‘m glad I read it in this format - it‘s exquisite - a perfect companion to the poem.

A book club pick by a Scottish friend. Very fast read. Should be an interesting discussion as a few former teachers in my group. I already know one woman was surprised there was so much about sex!! 🤷🏻‍♀️ Any insights from Littens to bring to the discussion? #bookclubread #modernclassics #aussiereaders #aussielittens

gradcat It‘s one of those rare books where the movie was actually better...doesn‘t happen very often.... 12mo

Just received this gem through the post. I imagine that even William Boyd‘s shopping lists or notes for the milkman would make for elegant reading, so I am definitely looking forward to this. #williamboyd #nattate #book #books #bookstagram #modernliterature #contemporaryfiction #modernclassics #arthistory #historyofart #biography

After desperately searching for The Alienist by Caleb Carr for half the year, The Works came to the rescue by selling a rerelease edition with a tv collaboration cover for the new series. I want to watch the series but was determined to read the book first, I was lost for a book to read next and my daughter chose this for me so let‘s begin 🐞

I'll Never Be Young Again | Daphne Du Maurier
post image

Not feeling the usual love for du Maurier :/.
I don't like the male protagonist at all. He's controlling and selfish. I like the theme of an almost Beat plot but am struggling to enthuse.
