@charl08 just finished my last read late last night so will be starting this one today - slightly ahead of schedule! Will try and remember to post as I go along!

charl08 I love that cover image - Catherine Hall is so glamorous. Also genius historian. #awkwardfeministsegue 3h
TrishB @charl08 I must sadly admit to not knowing a lot about her- but have been reading up on both of them this morning to fill that gap! 3h
charl08 Her book about Birmingham and Jamaica both inspired and wrecked my hopes for my PhD. It is just brilliant. 3h
TrishB @charl08 I shall keep an eye out for it! 2h

Beautifully and brutally honestly written. Brett does not shy away from any of the tough stories about the rise and demise of the band.

To all the my #jbuk buddies that have sent me emails! Apologies I‘m a bit behind, have the dreaded lurgy - and have mostly been in bed since Sunday, tried to go back to work this morning and lasted an hour! Will hopefully send something round at the weekend.

I get really sad when I realise that we‘re still fighting the same things I was fighting at 13....except I think probably worse as we now have the vile, toxic abuse on the internet!
But it was still really interesting reading what today‘s young women are trying to do in the name of feminism.

Suet624 I get really sad about it too. 3d
Kaila-ann We were just talking about this at work today in terms of maternity leave. It‘s pretty sad. 3d

An engrossing read, encompassing everything about human relationships. Pius Mulvey - what a character. So many metaphors between the ship and Ireland at the time.

Loved this book. Very Stephen King like and I did guess the direction it was going, mainly because I‘ve read so many of these themed books.
Don‘t read if you don‘t like long, rambling books that expect you to suspend any rational thinking.

Powerful, inspiring, upsetting, heart breaking, empowering. Literally a breadth of emotions in this, I cried several times. But I also laughed. Chanel you are an amazing young woman.

Thank you internet! Not read - me and self help books have never got along 😁

Cinfhen Same 🙋‍♀️ @Cathythoughts @TrishB not that I‘m without flaw 😉 2w
Velvetfur I'm going to 'come out' about being a reader of self help books! So there! 😛 I don't take them that seriously, but I find little bits of inspiration here and there, I just like to know how other people see things sometimes 😊 @Cathythoughts @Cinfhen 2w
See All 12 Comments
TrishB @Velvetfur I tend to go on message boards or similar if I really want to see/ask other people‘s opinions. The very few self help books I‘ve read I can summarise - have me time, eat well and exercise 😁😁 2w
TrishB @Cathythoughts @Cinfhen same! Not that I don‘t need help but begrudge wasting book money for it! 2w
Cinfhen Ha @Velvetfur 🙌🏻🎊💖I think self-help books do get a bad rap, unfairly. But unfortunately, they sometimes tend to capitalize off of others. 2w
Cathythoughts @Velvetfur I do love Pema Chodrin & Rumi & the more spiritual writers .... but some of the self- help books I just don‘t find helpful 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2w
Cathythoughts @Velvetfur or I can pick up a couple of lines from poems & songs... and use them like mantras... I find that can really help me ❤️👍 (edited) 2w
Velvetfur @TrishB Oh yes, they all follow the same format! The relationship ones are: don't shout at each other, and listen when your other half speaks 😂😂 2w
Velvetfur @Cinfhen Ah yes, I hadn't thought of that... Some self help books (that I've avoided) do seem to target certain types of people, and they basically look as if they're plagiarising previous books on the subject 🙁 2w
Velvetfur @Cathythoughts Yes I agree, they're not totally 'helpful' all the way through, but I've read a few relationship ones that have been written by American authors so it's been interesting for me to read the differences between how US and UK people behave in relationships. If that makes sense 😊 2w
Cathythoughts @Velvetfur yes is does make sense. And I think at the end of the day , whatever helps us has to be good 😘 2w

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘m happy it made it!!! Enjoy ❤️❤️❤️ 2w
CarolynM I hope you enjoy the book. I think the photo is beautiful too, I always loved driving through that Forrest (it's not terribly far out of the city) but I haven't been there since the fires. I'm not sure what state it is in now. 2w

Had a day off today, so squeezed another book in a day read! (That‘s my retirement aim)
This one was even better than the first, but he certainly is a complicated character that makes many questionable decisions. Here‘s to more in the series 👍🏻
Thanks Jess for the book and the lovely card that‘s just come today 😘

Velvetfur It's great when you can put away a whole book in one day isn't it 😂👍 2w
KathyWheeler I haven‘t read this yet because, in the first book, Darren and his questionable decisions made my so antsy! I was constantly worried for him. I will read this book; I just need to be able to handle that nervousness. 2w
MicheleinPhilly I have the day off today too. Need to pick my next read. 2w

I have 29 books on my kindle with girl in the title! The above 4 with gone and none with wild 🤷‍♀️ Girl is a very popular title obviously.

The Irish Princess | ELIZABETH. CHADWICK
post image

I have been craving some good historical fiction for a while now - it‘s because I‘m very fussy about time periods and authors.
Love Chadwick and love books set in Henry II period (with a little cameo from William Marshall). A great read stayed up past my bed time to finish!

Scochrane26 I want to read her books but never seem to get around to them. I‘ve read the first 2 about elinor of Aquitaine. 3w
TrishB @Scochrane26 I love her books. You have to read the third about Eleanor and finish the story 😁 , also highly recommend the two about William Marshall, The Greatest Knight and A Place Beyond Courage 👍🏻 2w

Loved it ❤️ written as if Debbie was sat in front of you talking.
Interesting and honest, she seems to tell the truth even though she knows some things won‘t exactly make her look good.
#music #movember

Cinfhen This sounds like a good audio pick!!! 3w
TrishB @Cinfhen I imagine it would be great read by Debbie 👍🏻 3w
Cathythoughts That was quick! Nice review... I heard a review praising it on the radio recently too. Although , the reviewer was annoyed at not getting more personal feeling info ... I was admiring Debbie for not feeling she had to reveal all ( havnt read , do not sure if that makes sense) 3w

gradcat I really want to read this book, @TrishB . . . I read a review and was immediately interested, plus, with your stamp of approval, I know it‘ll be good. ♥️ 3w
TrishB @Cathythoughts have sat on couch all day and just read it, so engrossing! Makes perfect sense- she says she had kept stuff private and she doesn‘t go into a lot of detail about her family, which I respect totally. 3w
TrishB @gradcat I think you‘ll like it 👍🏻 3w
Balibee146 Sounds fab ❤️ 3w

If Debbie felt like this, there‘s no chance for us mere mortals is there.

Cathythoughts No , there‘s no chance at all 🙄 3w

Bookwomble There's more money to be made from causing people to feel insecure, and then selling them the 'solution', than there is from encouraging and supporting people to be self-caring and self-acceptant, sadly. 3w

TrishB @Bookwomble bedrock of capitalism. Because if we all felt good where would consumerism be. 3w
Chrissyreadit Absolutely! 3w
Chrissyreadit @TrishB yes! I struggle with feminism (heartily pro) and capitalism (I like true enterprising opportunities for all) and raising my teens to believe they have choices rather than influences. 3w
emilyhaldi She‘s not wrong 3w
TrishB @Chrissyreadit totally agree- nothing wrong with liking perfume, make up, nice clothes etc - it‘s when you think it‘s going to change your life if you buy it! Or you have to have it to be acceptable. 3w
KB253 I agree with her, so I put it down 3w
TrishB Thanks @Reggie I don‘t know the person- but loved her rant (I have similar to friends and family!!). Society‘s way to make us feel like this is powerful and hidden and we must fight back. 3w

This weeks finished books.
Run Away - usual fast paced good thriller from Coben.
Lying Room- not up to usual French standard I thought, just so-so.
Woolf- clever, wonderfully written and probably still rings true.
Poet X - loved it, well written (YA probably) in verse and good story/themes.
Notes- good, quick read. Nothing particularly new.

Cinfhen That‘s a lot of read books!! Thanks for sharing your #BookReport 🤓 3w
Cathythoughts I saw Lying Room in the bookshop yesterday ... never read this author , maybe not a good one to start with then 👍 (edited) 3w
TrishB @Cathythoughts the Freida Klein series by the author is great - starts with Blue Monday. Really recommend that series. 3w
