Jazz Age January: Week 2 Linkup

Jazz Age January

Happy Saturday flappers and fellas! We’re wrapping up the second week of Jazz Age January, and I can’t stop doing the Charleston. (Seriously, ask my boyfriend.) My reading slowed down this week, but I’m halfway through Flappers: Six Women of a Dangerous Generation by Judith Mackrell and loving it.

Last week, there were three posts linked up:

I shared a post about So We Read On: How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures by Maureen Corrigan.

The Literate Quilter wrote about West of Sunset by Stewart O’Nan, a biographical novel about F. Scott Fitzgerald’s last years, and Flapper: A Modern Story of Sex, Style, Celebrity, and the Women Who Made America Modern by Joshua Zeitz.

Monica’s Bookish Life discussed Vile Bodies by Evelyn Waugh.

If you have posted something for Jazz Age January in the last week, link to it in the Mister Linky below!

 

  • As you know, I “accidentally” read Brideshead Revisited, a book that had nothing to do with the Jazz Age, last week. This week, I read Nella Larsen’s Passing. It was difficult to read at times, but I am very glad that I picked it.

  • Valerie R Lawson

    I read COCAINE BLUES by Kerry Greenwood, the first in the Phryne Fisher Murder Mystery series, now an Australian TV series, The Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries, all about a lady detective during the roaring twenties. It seemed apropos and it was great fun.

  • Another week goes by and I still haven’t picked up anything for Jazz Age January. Next book, I promise!
