It‘s the last day of the regular season, and two divisions are tied. So I guess I‘ll be watching some baseball ⚾️ later! But first...#septemberwrapup

Mdargusch I forgot they made a series out of these books. I need to check it out! 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Mdargusch I was looking it up this morning. It‘s a BBC series and it looks like it‘s here in the US through Showtime. Not sure of timing though. 1y
MicrobeMom Love this series! 1y

LoverofLit I almost used this book for the same #popsugarreadingchallenge topic! I've heard great things about these books. 1y
Ericalambbrown Loved these books! Can‘t wait for the next one on 9/18 😊 1y
Ericalambbrown @BarbaraTheBibliophage The series has already run. I was really disappointed with the adaptations and I‘m not one to be all precious about adaptations. The actors they chose were fantastic, though! I think it fell down in the screenplay 1y
Libby1 I liked the TV series and think the books are excellent. Career of Evil was the best one so far. 1y
CSeydel I love that “female author with male pseudonym” is a hashtag. 1y
Lel2403 Great book...I‘m waiting for the latest one. 1y
4thhouseontheleft I used this for the same prompt in #popsugar2018, I didn‘t even think about it filling the #Booked2018 #underdog prompt! 1y

I was going to save this #underdog story for later in the year, but I saw it was available at the library and pounced on it. Kiko is a senior in high school, half Japanese, painfully shy, and she can‘t wait to get away from her self-absorbed hot mess of a mother and go to art school. But things don‘t exactly turn out as planned ... Plot/characters aren‘t exactly subtle or nuanced, but the story is sweet, & you can‘t help but love Kiko. #Booked2018

Cinfhen I still need a book for this prompt! Thanks for the suggestion 1y

What can I say? This is me in 1977, preparing to become the *perfect* Stepford Wife for my next #stepfordsummerparty with my best 70s tea set in all it‘s glory, complete with silver tray and trumpet 🎺 😂😂😂
You‘re all welcome to come over for a cup of fine imaginary tea ☕️ 👗👛👠🍸

CarolynM Gorgeous! That coffee pot is so 70's! 2y
ValerieAndBooks Love it! Brown and orange — definitely a 1970s color combo 😊! 2y
Reviewsbylola So cute! That tea set couldn‘t be more 70s. 😂😂 2y
GripLitGrl Love it💕💕 2y
CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen Thanks ☺️ I do so hope I‘ve slightly changed 😂 Serving coffee with a trumpet nearby is something I might still aspire to😜🎺 2y
Cinfhen Were you taking a soccer break??? 2y
batsy Awww! Too cute! And @ValerieAndBooks I was thinking the same about the colour combo. Very groovy and 70s 😁 2y
CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen I'm definitely taking a soccer break now ⚽️⚽️⚽️ Iceland is playing Nigeria! All the men 😜 Gislason 🍬And some great soccer too 😊 2y
Cinfhen Yes!!! It‘s on in my house ‼️Iceland 😍 @CoffeeAndABook (edited) 2y
CoffeeAndABook @ElishaLovesBooks @CarolynM @ValerieAndBooks @Reviewsbylola @GripLitGrl @batsy Thanks!! 😄You can hardly go wrong with 70s pictures they're the best - in retrospect 🧡💛 2y
CoffeeAndABook @mabell I know!! So serious 😂I guess if you‘re serving with a silver tray & a trumpet you better know what‘s what 😉 2y
CouronneDhiver Adorable! ☕️ I cant play along because I wasn‘t around in the 70s. Lol 2y
CouronneDhiver I‘m tuning into the football game though - 🇮🇸 👏🏽 🇮🇸 👏🏽 2y
CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen Oh Yay 👏🏻 So we‘re watching together!! In all honesty, it‘s not that great a game (YET) , so I‘ve got a chance to catch up on the amazing stepford posts!! 🍹💎🎉 2y
CoffeeAndABook @CouronneDhiver Yesss! @Cinfhen & I are watching too!!! 🇳🇬 - 🇮🇸 👏🏻👏🏻 The game has a little room for improvement though, right? come ON you Vikings!!! Can I make you guys really jealous?? I just found out the Northern God Gislason is playing in the same league as my city‘s team - I‘ll get to see him live in our stadium sometime next year 🤪🤩 2y
CoffeeAndABook @CouronneDhiver @Cinfhen Wait what??? 😱 🇳🇬1:0🇮🇸 2y
CouronneDhiver Surprise! This WC has been full of upsets so far... it‘s not over til it‘s over. 2y
CoffeeAndABook @CouronneDhiver It sure isn‘t 🤞🏼🤞🏼 2y
Cinfhen I‘m actually happy for Nigeria @CoffeeAndABook @CouronneDhiver 2y
Cinfhen And I‘m enjoying all the upsets ~ I like an #Underdog 2y
CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen I wasn‘t sure whom I‘d be rooting for before the game began - basically they‘re both underdogs! But then - Iceland is just so tiny & it‘s their first World Cup!! Their fans so brave!! Anyhow, I can appreciate what this means to Nigeria & their team 💪🏻 And on top of all that this was another day of fabulous Stepford fun!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👗🥂 2y
Cinfhen 😘😘 2y
tammysue Cute! I love the tea set! 😂👍🏻 2y
Bookzombie Adorable! Love the colors! 2y
KarenUK You‘re so right! We totally could have had a tea party 💕👍 @CoffeeAndABook 2y
Mdargusch Very cute. Glad you started practicing early! 2y
DebinHawaii Great photo! Adorable and very groovy! 🌈💛 2y
BluestockingDuchess @CoffeeAndABook I love your expression in the photo 2y
CoffeeAndABook @CouronneDhiver @cinfhen 😜 What a soccer fight!!! ⚽️⚽️ 2y
CouronneDhiver Scared the cat with all my yelling. Outstanding! 2y
Cinfhen Congrats @CouronneDhiver @CoffeeAndABook I actually missed this game but I heard it was a nail biter 🎉🎉🎉 2y
CoffeeAndABook @CouronneDhiver @cinfhen 😂 I know!!! I yelled & groaned intermittently. I‘m a wreck 😅 2y
Cinfhen Are you ok?!?! 😱😢😢Last night was pretty shocking 2y
CoffeeAndABook Oh @Cinfhen! I‘m pretty sad 😢 It was a hard game to watch but we just weren‘t good enough this time. So at least it doesn‘t feel unjust. It was an awful year for soccer for me, our league team in Cologne has had a horrible season and descended to the second league. But - it‘s just a game 😏 We‘ll get over it & see better times! We‘ve had a nice high last time & now it‘s time for other teams... just right now I don‘t feel like rooting for 👇🏻 2y
CoffeeAndABook anyone else... yet!! Thanks so much for asking @Cinfhen !!! It‘s good to have Litsy-Support 😊 Are you rooting for any of the remaining teams?? Have a fine day 🌞🍹 2y
