Parts of this book I couldn‘t put down but other parts were so boring I wanted to give it up. I‘m not satisfied with the ending, I‘m not satisfied with the weird hotel/well drama, I don‘t know. I feel like this book could have been great.

birdie_gw Never read this author and don‘t plan to - have heard such good things about some titles but just can‘t bring myself to approach! 5d
pdxannie @birdie_gw it was extra long but if it had been edited down to an appropriate length I think it could have been great. But yeah, I can‘t say I recommend. And I don‘t think I‘ll pick up anything else by him unless it comes with a write-up from someone I adore 4d

Well now:
1. Samantha Heather Mackey , because she is me. She is.
2. Hmmm... Dracula? Walter Hartright?
3. Done. I just finished the #Netgalley ARC and while I didn't like the last two chapters and Epilogue too much, I really really liked this insanely twisty book. It often went directions that had me literally gasping out loud.

Yuki_Onna Thank you for the tag last week, Randall! This was fun!

To answer your question: I really really don't want to get your hopes up too high, because my mental health is (and has been for at least 1,5 years now) baaaddd... So don't expect results anytime soon (supposed you agree to this, anyway...)
But I'm talking about translation into German.
Your curiosity must be rewarded.. 😎

The_Penniless_Author Ooh, I would totally agree to that! (And of course, I understand it may never happen, just letting you know I'd be into the idea if you ever felt up to it.) I don't know how that works with my publisher, but I could find out if/when it becomes a reality. 2mo

My heart is full. ❤️ Got to travel to Kansas City this past weekend where I lived for 10+ years. I was spoiled by my girlfriends there AND I had the immense pleasure of spending an afternoon with @vivastory. After being friends on Litsy since 2016, it was so great to finally meet Scott in person. ☺️ The two cool books are from him. So thoughtful! My only disappointment was that I missed seeing Taylor Swift. Next time! 😀

kspenmoll Sounds beyond wonderful! So happy for you! 4mo
Ruthiella Fantastic! 😃 4mo
LeahBergen Aww, that sounds wonderful! 4mo

Les Enfants Terribles | Jean Cocteau
post image

This weekend I went to exibition sharing an eye of how children are portayed in (children‘s) literature - often as enfant terribles. It was very interesting.
Can you guess the books portrayed in the two smaller pictures?

Dilara Pippi Longstocking on the left (looking at the stripy stocking). Not sure sure about the right picture. Alice in Wonderland, maybe, if the teacup is a clue for this book ? But I must say I can't associate anything with that booted, naked leg. 6mo
Ruthiella Pippi, Alice and Struwwelpeter! 😃 (edited) 6mo
MariaW @Ruthiella Everything correct! 😊 6mo
MariaW @Dilara Both correct. I took the picture with the teacup on purpose otherwise I would have felt like you did. 6mo
Dilara @MariaW 😇 👏 6mo
