Roaring, Swinging, Fabulous, Groovy Blog Collaboration // 1920's

It's one of my favorite days! Audrey & I's Roaring, Swinging, Fabulous, Groovy Blog Collaboration! :) 

Today, Audrey and I are talking about the 1920's. I still want to watch more period movies and read more historical fiction this year! SO MAKE SURE TO SHARE YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS BELOW IN THE COMMENTS! :) :) AND MAKE SURE TO HOP ON OVER TO AUDREY'S BLOG TO CHECK OUT HER RECOMMENDATIONS! :) 

Here we go:

On the first Tuesday of the month, February through November, we're highlighting books & films from/about specific eras that we recommend! (Television shows, too, sometimes!) There's no commitment or link-up during those months on your end, but in December we’ll host a recap/link-up for the entire year!

I'm learning a lot from this challenge already: 

Books, Films, and Bonus will be things that I HAVE read or watched. "On Deck": will be things that I am hoping to get to soon!

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald - Check out my post about Gatsby, here. - PS I do not like Daisy. ugh.
The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty - Check out my thoughts on this one for SUYB next week! Spoiler: I loooved it!
Lady Chatterley's Lover by D.H. Lawrence - Currently Reading!

Anastasia - all time favorite (obviously)
The Great Gatsby - The Baz Luhrmann version... because I love him, obvs.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - I adore this movie! (sorry for double sharing, Audrey!)

Downton Abbey - TV - I know it's shameful... but I haven't finished this!
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries - TV - THE BEST SHOW EVER, GO WATCH IT!

The Romanov Sisters: The Lost Lives of the Daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra by Helen Rappaport (book) - So fascinated by the Romanovs... this might be mostly the 1910s...
Z: The Beginning of Everything (show)
Women in Love (mini series)
The Immigrant (movie)
Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham (book)
Florence Foster Jenkins (movie) - watched this later it is from the 1940's... whoops! I definitely recommend.
The Rest of Fitzgerald's Books

I clearly have a lot of work to do! 

What books, movies, or shows can you recommend that take place in the 1920's? Is there a goodreads equivalent for movies?!

Be sure to hope over to Audrey’s blog and check out her recommendations!

Next month we’re checking out my favorite era- the 1930s! It was a tough decade for our country but from devastation and depression is born hope and stories of courage and resilience! We’ll share some of our favorites in April!
