Killers of a Certain Age | Deanna Raybourn

So much fun reading this one. Many murders. Details aren‘t Patricia Cornwell gruesome, but the assassins do employ techniques I found really interesting, sometimes surprising. Lots of humorous banter between these friends as well. Thank you #BlameItOnLitsy for this recommendation 🙌🏼

Hooked_on_books I loved this one! 3d

A #blameitonLitsy book -> I ❤️ octopuses + had a Libro.fm credit & needed an audiobook for crafting

Michael Urie narrates for Marcellus & he was perfect. I loved hearing Marcellus‘s POV. As for the story, it's a sweet and, with the addition of Marcellus, unique, albeit a bit predictable. I enjoyed it but it‘s a soft pick as it didn‘t give me all.the.feels like Ove or Harold Fry did.

Book 1 for #fabulousfebraury
Fiction pick for #naturalitsy2023

marleed Have you read the companion book to Harold Fry? It made me love Harold all the more. And it‘s ending is incredible. 3d
wanderinglynn @marleed yes! Loved it too! 3d
marleed Omg, Lynn. Yesterday I placed a hold on a 4-hr audiobook to be released Tuesday. I knew nothing other than it was by Rachel Joyce. Our text here reminded me to go read about it. It‘s the third and final in the Harold Fry trilogy! 3d
wanderinglynn Thanks @marleed 😀 I didn‘t know it was coming out! Definitely want to read it. 3d

There‘s been a lot of memes lately about women going to the seashore to rest like the old days..think we all need rest?

Rest needed
She was allowed books …

Agoraphobia -Agoraphobia (ag-uh-ruh-FOE-be-uh) is a type of anxiety disorder. Agoraphobia involves fearing and avoiding places or situations that might cause panic and feelings of being trapped, helpless or embarrassed.

Librarybelle Thanks for sharing the article! 1w

TheBookHippie @IndoorDame I feel I need a new copy and a reread. 1w
mcctrish As much as I‘d like to make a joke about needing a rest at the seashore for myself ( especially in January/February) having everything taken away and put in isolation would never work, did it ever ? 1w
Sargar114 That looks like an interesting read, never heard of that story. The misogyny during her initial hospital stay and when the doctor came. Really makes it hard to think they had her best interest at heart. 1w
AmyG Sadly, it was the time period….how women were treated. I kept thinking if it was today and Ginette had a proper Dr or therapist, she would have led a different life. She certainly had alot of talking to do about her mother. Jeez. What a disappointment Ginette was….an unmarried woman. 😳😡 (edited) 1w
Karisa Better than the insane asylum! Felt like we were all on a “rest” there for awhile with Covid. I was just fine (of course with my Kindle, Netflix, laptop… )😂 Ginette mostly just had the old radio and back window neighbors 1w
vlwelser The Yellow Wallpaper is amazing and you should definitely reread it. 1w
BookwormAHN I need to add The Yellow Wallpaper to my tbr. I've been meaning to read it for years. I always love to hear men's opinions on what women need, especially those with a medical degree 🤦🏼‍♀️ 1w
DebinHawaii The Yellow Wallpaper is good-classic. I read it a few years ago after hearing so much about it-it was a #blameitonLitsy read. But yes, this “cure” was used so often by men on women back in those days. 😡 1w
Hooked_on_books I think we need a rest from patriarchy. I know I do. 1w
TheBookHippie @DebinHawaii funny enough we had to read it in nurses training back in the day when there was actual LPNs and an actual nursing school. 1w
mollyrotondo All people including men need mental health days and/or weeks. But “nervous conditions” in women is just such a man‘s dismissal of women‘s health. I have always loved The Yellow Wallpaper. Since agoraphobia is defined as being afraid of a place and avoiding that place, can this be applied to a “place” like a car? Or is that it‘s own phobia? 1w

I had very little prior knowledge of Pan Am. Amazing opportunities for women of a time when they were expected to be housewives and little else. These brave flight attendants traveled the world—going to amazing destinations, wearing clothes that would have been unacceptable and socializing in ways that wouldn‘t have been possible in America. A quick listen and a #blameitonlitsy checkout. Good but not great for me.

Just finished listening to this #blameitonLitsy urban fantasy ghost story? It‘s hard to squeeze this one into a box. Jess has grown up in the USA , graduated from Harvard was living the American dream until her father falls ill and the family is forced to move back to Malaysia. Back to a new world of ghosts, gods and gangsters. Jess has secret , her parents have secrets and her Grandmother‘s ghost had secrets. #jumpstart2023 👍💚🐉

Clwojick Sounds intriguing 🧐 I‘ll have to check it out! ⭐️ 1w
Dragon Thanks @Clwojick it‘s very atmospheric and is surprisingly funny at times thanks to Jess‘s observations 💚🐉 1w
