Hey friends!! Ended up being unexpectedly offline for several days, but I'm back!! Lots of notifications to catch up on, so sorry if anyone was feeling ignored!! I also have loads of book reviews to post, but we'll see when that happens. 😂 In the meantime, here's a picture of the side garden... it's actually gotten even crazier than this the last few days as it's been dumping rain for three days!

BarbaraTheBibliophage At my house we call rain “weed juice.” Have fun out there! 🌿🌿 5mo

Ruthiella I love the lush green of it. Here in So Cal much goes brown and dormant in the summer. 5mo
TheAromaofBooks @BarbaraTheBibliophage - “weed juice“ is right!! I was just down in the main veggy garden and it's turned into an absolute jungle! 😂 5mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @TheAromaofBooks Welcome to my garden situation! Since I was incapacitated for the spring, everything went wild. Now I‘m trying to get it in shape again … so much weed pulling! Still, it‘s fun to see the progress. 5mo
ferskner That is PERFECTION. 4mo
TheAromaofBooks @ferskner - Thank you!!! We've decided to lean into the “nature's garden“ style 😂 4mo

So somehow I not only deleted this app, but I forgot I used FB to log in. But I am finally back. It doesn‘t seem like too much changed here.

I am posting one book per day from my to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it. Some will be old, some will be new - don't judge me, I have a lot of books.

Day 110th

Join the fun if you want!

This was my #doublespin for September @TheAromaofBooks
This was the Dutch translation of The returned. It even was made into a show for television, the basic story is the same, but major things were changed. It read a bit staccato, I don't know if that's because of the translation. It fell a bit flat, someone mentioned it should have been fleshed out more. I agree.
TBR since ?, 384 pages.

TheAromaofBooks At least it's off the list!! 2y

In its way this is a sad tale. What would happen if loved ones, who had passed away, suddenly came back. The way they were before their death. What would you tell them? What would you do to keep them with you? For me the Returned acted as though they had unfinished business to complete. The difference being they are “alive” instead of being spirits. Worth reading. Just don‘t be expecting answers or reasons for any of the happenings.

I have returned to Litsy after a long break. I was struggling with my mental and physical health and needed to cut down on where I was putting my energy.

I'm now feeling much more human again and decided it was time to throw myself back into the best online community I know.

I'm looking forward to catching up with what everyone is reading and adding eleventy hundred new books to my #tbr

It was a weird story that used the returned characters to reveal the true nature of the living.
