That‘s all, folks. That‘s all the reading time I managed in the weekend. It‘s Monday morning here. Congratulations to those who completed the full hours and beyond, and to those who did any reading at all! 👏

“In the van, we can see the rocket in the distance, lit up and shining, an obelisk. In reality, of course, it‘s a 4.5-megaton bomb loaded with explosive fuel, which is why everyone else is driving away from it.”

Girl on a Wire | Gwenda Bond

I am not good with heights but I am fascinated by high wire & trapeze acts and I wonder what it would be like to #FeelSoHigh above the ground. These three books are in my stacks. I read & enjoyed The Orphan's Tale & the tagged book & Queen of the Air are #TBR & loaded on my Kindle.

Cinfhen 🤩🤩🤩 5mo
KarenUK Have you seen the documentary ‘Man on Wire‘ ? It‘s so good, but also petrifying! 🙀 5mo

(Day 21 - #FeelSoHigh)

*Everybody is feeling high at the drug- and sex-fueled parties that are circumambient in Clay‘s world; i.e., the world that Easton Ellis paints for us in his debut novel, tagged. It‘s a fairly stultifying existence: house parties at million-dollar homes featuring kids shooting heroin, having one-night-stands, and watching snuff films. It‘s the kind of exotic party that was de rigueur in the 80s, unfortunately.

Cinfhen We were just talking about this movie Friday night😁 5mo
KarenUK Great collage 👌 5mo
gradcat @Cinfhen What did you think of the movie? I remember not liking it very much, but I had read the book before, and that often taints the experience. 5mo
gradcat @KarenUK Thank you very much!! ♥️ 5mo

I‘m high on life right now, spending over a week at the lake. This book is fantastic, and there‘s some dope smoking going on amongst some of the characters. 😆Unfortunately, the uptight parents that steamroll their children are not the ones partaking. #feelsohigh #lilithjuly

Reviewsbylola I will sent it to you once my family reads it. I still need to send you Severance if @emilyhaldi ever reads it. 😆 @Cinfhen 5mo
Cinfhen Thanks so much, Steph 😘😘no rush on either book!!! 5mo
KarenUK Ok, now I‘m even more excited about this one. Think this might have to be next up👍💕😊 5mo

#LilithJuly Im in a bit of a reading slump😝I haven‘t read much since my flight last week. I‘m in the middle of 3 books but nothing is really moving me. I think I‘m just overwhelmed by family & friends right now #FeelSoHigh 😉✈️ Hoping I‘ll find my groove this week🤞🏼

Chrissyreadit Hope you are having a great visit! 5mo

KarenUK Hope you are having a wonderful time.... but hope your slump gets better too! I feel ya, I‘m slumping a bit now too.... 5mo
TrishB Just enjoy the rest and the reading will come back ❤️ 5mo
Cinfhen So true @emilyhaldi it certainly feels that way @MicheleinPhilly the weather is sweltering 😰😰 but it‘s great to be surrounded by family @Chrissyreadit @KarenUK @TrishB 5mo
erzascarletbookgasm Just enjoy time with the family and doing other things besides reading. 💕 This ‘slumping‘ will soon pass.🍀 5mo
Kalalalatja Just give yourself time (and permission) to enjoy all the other wonderful stuff! Reading will always be there when the family isn‘t 💕 5mo
mrp27 Enjoy your time with family and friends! 5mo
Reviewsbylola I hate that feeling, but it‘s a good time for a slump! 5mo
Crazeedi So I'm thinking just enjoy your family/friend time! 💗💗 5mo
Suet624 Family and friends totally override reading until all of a sudden it doesn‘t. 😁 5mo
Cinfhen Thanks @Crazeedi I am taking this time to enjoy and relax ❤️a little human interaction isn‘t necessarily a bad thing, right @Suet624 😜I‘m just having a bit of reader‘s guilt and Im missing my Litsy friends 😢 5mo
BarbaraBB Hoping you have a great time ❤️ 5mo
CoffeeAndABook Hi Cindy!!! Hope you‘re having a wonderful time out there!!! 🌸 I was in a reading slump on my trip as well, nothing could hold my attention. I finally decided I need a Grisham, his writing is so suspenseful. I hardly ever read him but whenever I do it‘s good. In this instance I read Camino Island which centers around a book theft but is also about small independent bookstores. I really liked it - and it worked 👍🏼 Sending my love 💓 5mo

#LilithJuly #FeelSoHigh
Two ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ reads for me, both with a link to the World Trade Center....
In McCann‘s story, it‘s August 1974 NYC and Philippe Petit‘s astounding tightrope walk between the towers is the backdrop to a beautiful portrait of the people and city below...
In Foer‘s novel, 9 year old Oskar has an adventure through 5 boroughs, as he comes to terms with the death of his father on 9/11....
I loved both of these so much.... 💕📚

Cinfhen Awesome choices!! I loved the book you tagged but I wasn‘t as crazy about the JSF novel 😬 5mo
