Thanks Brona for the idea (Brona's Books)


  1. It's always fun to see what the books we read say about us, isn't it? :)

  2. I like your selections! I thought about doing it, but can't remember that many titles of books. I really need to keep a better list!

    1. I'd love to help you start a Goodreads account. It is so easy and free.

  3. Very clever and well done! I especially like the best advice you give: we should all be feminists!

  4. Yes fun, but harder than it looks. Here's mine https://tcl-bookreviews.com/2020/02/04/tcls-life-according-to-literature-tag/
