    Thanks:) Oh my god, I don't even know if I can watch that, and go through it again, though! It was so frustating to read and fortunately I can't really relate to Tess at all, but I was researching some family history of my great- great grandmother who married at 13 and thought of her a lot.

    I'm reading Thomas Hardy for the first time, this year. Tess of the d'Urbervilles is my favorite so far & probably one of the best books I've ever read.

    Oh my gosh. Tess is one of my favourites! The tragedy. I’m ridiculously excited. Feel free to DM me and tell me what you think!

    PS: BBC did mini series of it a out 10 years ago and it’s pretty good.

    Monster of the week: tome of mysteries

    Sounds intriguing! What’s it about?

    Also...I need to hang out in this thread more! 🤓

    It's a game book, rules and adventures in a horror-esque setting

    My son insists I’ll like it,
    getting ready to start the series.

    I'm not a huge Niven fan (I don't dislike any thing, I just don't actively seek him out) but he is a good writer.

    Oh wow! So cool that you have access to that photo. And your GG Grandma definitely does not look thrilled! How old was her husband, do you know?

    Yes, fortunately I can’t relate to Tess! Hardy’s description of his imaginary rural England is beautiful though, it makes me want to (re)visit England! Far from the Madding Crowd is a good one too.

    Apparently the scene where *spoilers* Tess is encountered in the woods is debated about whether or not it was a consensual act, which added to its shock at the time. I’d need to reread it but as I recall she seemed pretty NOT OKAY with the encounter.

    I think he was 21 or 22. I had started researching them at the same time that I read the book.I think she was born in the1880s so the book helped me to understand what sort of world she was living in at the time. Yes, it was a bit unclear about that encounter, and actually the whole time I read it I was sort of asking myself if what she was saying and thinking were really her true feelings.:) I might read Far from the Madding Crowd next. I found most of his books for free on Google Book app! The way he writes is definately captivating. I want to read them all.:)

    Yes, I went ahead and took the plunge, and tried to make a visually stimulating shelfie!:)

    just wrapped up the the inheritance series on audible, I started the series a long time ago before it was completed and never got back to it to see how it ends until now. A bit sad in the end but also a very interesting and different ending that I was anticipating.

    Just started White Fragility, trying to broaden my mind a bit.

    Physically reading the red rising trilogy still. I'm still not in love with it, but kinda of just keep going through it because I don't have anything I am itching to get into at the moment.

    I just finished this:

    9780194790956-us.jpg

    and I gotta admit, I'm a little embarrassed that it's taken me this long to read it ( don't judge me; I've been busy.)

    anyway, it's not what I expected and was simply a work of art.

    I just started this & it's pretty cool:
