New Year's Eve
New Year's Eve | Lisa Grunwald
54 posts | 1 read
Part contemporary family drama, part ghost story, this engrossing novel dramatizes the difficult process of letting go of one's childhood to embrace one's new chosen family. This is the story of twin sisters, their children, and an accident that claims the life of one, and leaves the others to find their way away from, and back to each other. LG Alternate.

Gorgeous gorgeous girls pull the pin on ailing nye plans and order a pizza for pickup instead… and then lock themselves out on a 35°C (95°F) day ?

I was going to drive to collect my pizza but I‘ve walked instead… and my grandpa has since come to my rescue and I‘m home, recovering in front of a fan…

Not the tagged book. This is a good and diverse set of stories set on New Year‘s Eve. It starts out really well but ends not so much. But that‘s because no. 5 is in the horror genre, the 6th is a zombie story, neither of which I care for. Still definitely worth reading if you need some new year‘s stories under your belt, say for #wintergames! #tmskellington @crimson613 @clwojick @StayCurious #24b42020 @TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65 @jb72

2017 has been a tumultuous year both personally and politically. I can't say I'm sad to see it go. But I am grateful for such a rich year of reading when I read more than I ever have. And I'm grateful for all this community for providing friendship and conversation while adjusting to a new city. Changes are afoot so I expect I'll be reading less in the new year. But I still plan to hang around here.
Cheers Littens! Here's to a great 2018 💕🥂🎉😘

I‘m having a very wild New Year‘s Eve - summarizing 2017‘s reading 🤘🏽😆
I tend to just follow my reading feelings and I haven‘t made a conscious effort to read diversely. I don‘t do resolutions, but in 2018 I do want to try to do better when it comes to reading more diverse authors. I‘m also on a mission to read more African authors, especially South African. Let‘s do this 2018 👊🏽

Dear Litsy friends,

I'm thinking about doing a readathon from 12/31 to 1/1, maybe call it the Introvert New Year's Party. Has anyone started something like this already, or would anyone be interested in joining along? I love doing readathons with my buds online, way more than I enjoy having to socialize at parties.

Just a ponder for a Friday!

In Pennsylvania, one of our traditions is the New Year's Pretzel. I think it's originally German. Living here in Texas now, we don't have access to them so I bake my own. Anyone else have any neat NYE traditions?

My_novel_obsession When I was growing up my Mom who is Scottish believed in the first foot tradition - basically the first person through the front door on New Years shouldn't be empty handed-they need to bring something like bread or salt or coal if I am remembering correctly, that brings good fortune to the household (edited) 6y
My_novel_obsession My southern husband also always makes us pork roast and black eyed peas on New Years Day - that was his family's tradition to bring good luck for the new year. (edited) 6y
Suzze That looks sooooo good! I have no food traditions, but I do always watch the Twilight Zone marathon. I think I've watched about 11 hours so far. 6y
Cinfhen My first "YUM" of 2017 ?❤️?? 6y

Hazel0303 That looks really good! 6y
kristina_with_a_k Oh wow that looks delish! I'm going to a friend's later who is from PA, I must ask her about this tradition. Also, having hailed from the Lone Star State, I cannot let NYD pass without black-eyed peas, some form of cabbage, and cornbread. The peas are cooking as I type this. Later I will make the cornbread. My friend is making the sautkraut. Happy New Year!! 6y
ultrabookgeek We burned some sage/palo santo sticks and had black eyed peas. Food is so important! 6y

Sounds like the perfect New Years Eve to me. Who's with me?

Zelma Sounds like my day! Reading, napping, watching football, coffee. We even cooked dinner last night so we just have to warm it up tonight. (edited) 6y
JenFischS @Zelma You were smart to cook yesterday. I wish I had thought of that! 6y
Zelma @JenFischS it was only because we wanted to make ribs and the weather called for rain all weekend. So we cooked them last night before all the bad weather arrived. I still need to make some sides. 6y
JenFischS @Zelma Sounds yummy! 6y
RadicalReader @JenFischS bolting the door definitely helps in many marvelous situations of strict reading and demanding utmost concentration 6y
