TCL’s #ThrowbackThursday and #LinkParty #15 – April 29-June 3, 2021.

Throwback Thursday Record

What is Throwback Thursday?

I’ve noticed several of these meme on a few book blogs. For example, Susan Loves Books does one, which is (or was originally) hosted by Renee@It’s Book Talk. I also noticed that another fellow blogger, Lorrea @ What ‘Cha Readin’?, was doing this as a monthly meme for her blog. Then there’s Reading Maria who is doing something called “Last Year I Was Reading” where she compares what she’s reading now to what she read a year ago. Finally, recently I noticed that Susan Osborn over at A Life in Books is doing a series of posts called “Blasts from the Past“. In most instances, they use this to share one of their favorite reads or older reviews. Lorrea is doing it for books she enjoyed over the last decade. Finally, I just noticed that Lisa @ Bookshelf Fantasies was doing what she calls Flashback Friday, and I hope she’s still doing them!

I really like all of these ideas and am essentially stealing it from ALL of them, but with my own twists.

My Twists/Instructions:

  • The Chocolate Lady’s #ThrowbackThursday takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month (i.e., the Thursday before my monthly #6Degrees post).
  • My posts will highlight one of my previously published book reviews, and I encourage other participants to do the same.
  • If you want to participate but have a new blog that doesn’t have old reviews to highlight, you are encouraged to write a post about anything old that strikes your fancy!
  • If you want to tweet or share this post, or someone else’s post, or the reviews being highlighted, please use #ThrowbackThursday!
  • Please add the link to your post to the link party, below.
  • Please link back to this page on your post.

So… with no further ado, I give you…

The Chocolate Lady’s Throwback Thursday Book Review #15

So Fascinating it Should be Outlawed.

My Book Review for “The Collected Works of Billy the Kid” by Author.

Since April was Poetry Month, I thought I should include a book that has been called both fiction and poetry, but I believe it is a hybrid of the two formats. My review starts thusly:

collected bill the kid“With this book, Michael Ondaatje (author of “The English Patient”) brings us a unique hybrid of poetry and prose, mixed with both historical fact and fiction based on the true-life story of the famous American outlaw William Bonney, better known as “Billy the Kid.” Already from this little bit of information, you can tell that this is not a book that follows any usual format or structure. Therefore, there is no real “plot” to this book, and there is no linear story here either. Instead, you get more of an account of a small period in one infamous person’s life.. …”

If you like this idea, and want to do your own Throwback Thursday post, please put the link in the comments below.

If you have your own Throwback Thursday, Flashback Friday or any other type of nostalgia post, you can let me know about your blog post in this link party below. (You can also just post a link to an old review you want us to look at, without making a separate post.) I’ll keep this link party open until my next #ThrowbackThursday post (scheduled for June 3, 2021).

  1. HI Davida! The Collected Works of Billy the Kid sounds like something different indeed. I love the titles you always give to your reviews!

    I haven’t one a proper Throwback Thursday in ages and I am very proud of myself today for playing by the rules for a change.

    Hope you are well otherwise!

  2. Looks good – I know next to nothing about Billy the Kid, other than he was only 21 when he was shot!

    I’ve had The English Patient for several years but it’s one of those books I never get round to reading, so this post has given me a nudge to move it up the pile.
