Fuck You George | Devon Harris
post image

When I first joined Litsy, I thought it was a wonderful place to make new friends and talk about books. Now I know it is neither. Litsy is apparently a place where someone can attack you without rhyme or reason except to start a popularity contest or a political debate. Litsy is apparently a place where someone can defame and slander your character and the powers that be do nothing but sit idly by.
⬇️⬇️⬇️

BeansPage Litsy is apparently a place where the terms of service and the community guidelines are null and void and nothing more than a mute point. I am sick of people using this platform for their sadistic and malicious intentions. After seeing these things happen to me several times and several of my friends as well, I have come to the conclusion that I do not need this negativity in my life nor do I want it. ⬇️⬇️ 2y
BeansPage I'm done. I'm over it. I am deleting this app full of drama. If people want to get a hold of me they can do so via snail mail or Facebook. Bye ✌️ 2y
TheBookDream I‘m sorry this has been your experience. I recently had a problem but just decided to mute and move on. But that‘s up to everyone to decide whether they want to stay or not. Take care. (edited) 2y

RamsFan1963 @SumisBooks You are the second person I've seen on Litay mention they're having personal attack directed at them. I truly hate that people have brought their BS to our site and I'm disappointed Litsy hasn't done anything to correct the situation. 2y

I know I've been gone for some time now. I'm sorry I haven't been reading a lot so I don't have a lot to post. But this I had to share with all of you. Oberon Zell-Ravenhart has agreed to do a live video in my Facebook group. For those of you who do not know who he is, he is a famous Wiccan author, teacher and mentor. And I wanted to invite you all to the special occasion.

🚨NERD ALERT🚨 LMAO 😂😂😂
I have fallen down the video game rabbit hole lately and I've re-fallen in love with the Diablo series. So when I found out there was lore books, I jumped at them! These are the first 3 books in the series.
I'm SO excited to start reading these ❤️❤️❤️

After a month of only having read one graphic novel, I started this book today and I am really enjoying it so far. Super creepy! 👻

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Love that cover!! ❤️😱❤️ 2y
veritysalter I read ‘The Fog‘ last month, it was my first James Herbert and I loved it. Stacking this one📚 2y
Mistermandolin My first Herbert was The Fog, many moons ago. Stayed with me ever since. His output was always a bit uneven but when he was at the top of his game he had few equals. Great pick. 2y

Do you agree or disagree?
Please explain your answer 😃

BethM Depends- sometimes in order to keep reading I need to know that everything will be ok. 2y
Birdsong28 I think you miss things on the first read because you are concentrating on the build up on the story so when you reread and know the ending you can see other aspects of story and maybe get something else out of it or it adds to the ending as you have seen it from another angle. 📚📖 2y
TheAromaofBooks I agree with @BethM - sometimes what I'm reading starts to stress me out so much that I can't really enjoy the story until I know how at least a certain portion of it turns out (Do they stay together? Does this person die? Etc.) There is also a certain comfort in reading formulaic books (i.e. romance) where you know that everyone ends up with happy endings! 2y
See All 13 Comments
magyklyXdelish I am a HUGE spoiler queen. I live and thrive on spoilers. So for me I agree with this. It‘s more enjoyable for me because I hate the anxiety of not knowing. 2y
magyklyXdelish @TheAromaofBooks I agree with you. If something starts to stress me out too much I‘ll always look ahead to ease the anxiety. All the people I know hate spoilers so I e always felt an odd duck about this. 2y
ItsAnotherJen I like jumping into something without knowing anything about it! Reading reviews sometimes can hurt the reading experience in *some* cases. I love reading reviews though, I can't stay away from them...😂🤷‍♀️ 2y
TheDaysGoBy Generally I stay away from spoilers. I don‘t want to be influenced in how I read the story. It‘s also why I stay away from the reviews on goodreads - I don‘t want anyone‘s opinion to influence my own. But the second I‘m done reading I love reading all the reviews to see if people agreed with me or not 😂 But for me I live for suspense and if you know how it ends, you kinda kill that 2y
TheDaysGoBy @Birdsong28 I agree with this. And I love rereading my favorite books for this very reason 2y
CindyMyLifeIsLit I need suspense!! With literary classics, you often know the end, and that‘s okay because a huge part of reading a classic is analysis of style. But other books—I can‘t imagine reading a thriller or horror novel for the first time already knowing the ending. Some of my best, most memorable reading moments are when an unexpected twist almost knocks me out of my chair. That raw, visceral reaction is one of the things that makes reading so great! 2y
Emilymdxn I don‘t find knowing spoilers makes much difference to me, it doesn‘t seem to affect my appreciation of a book much either way! Any book of any genre im quite blasé about it, I‘m lucky it‘s not really possible to have books ruined for me 2y
Cheshirecat913 I have a huge habit of flipping to the last pages and reading how things end up. Maybe it is reader's anxiety like others have mentioned. I find that most of the time it doesn't ruin the book because how it ended up at that point is still a journey to read through. 2y
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm It never “ruins” the book, but it definitely doesn‘t provide the same punch as when you‘re totally surprised by it. I prefer not knowing. 2y
vlwelser There are some books/movies that are never quite the same once you know the ending. Examples are Fight Club, Shutter Island, The Sixth Sense. These are all still good. But there's no way to replicate how awesome the first time was. 2y

I walked 3 miles home with the book tucked into my leggings and under my t-shirt. It arrived dry. I think I‘ll save for an Oct read! 2y

This book was okay. It was very intriguing in the beginning and the prospect of having it be a Labyrinth retelling really got me excited. But towards the end of the book it ended up being a chore to read as things slowed down exponentially. It's sad because I really wanted to like this one all the way through.

I will say that I appreciate what the author of this book was trying to do and the things that she was trying to convey. I appreciate this book for the simple fantasy novel that it is but for the real world issues that this book touches on quite heavily, I felt it there just should have been more to it.

BeansPage @Laughterhp yes it is in the horror genre but it is short stories and poems. Where my book is a little different from most horror collections is that in every story the main characters exhibit different mental illnesses. There are some triggers however as the book does touch on things like self-harm and suicide. 2y
Andrew65 @SumisBooks Thanks 😊 (edited) 2y
Laughterhp Okay. I will give a try! 😊 2y
BeansPage @Laughterhp oh thank you sweetheart!!! May I please have your email address? 2y

Nope. Not for me. The plot ran too slow, the characters seemed very unrealistic and it has way too much of a Twilight vibe. Not my thing.

If the positive thinking mantra is not your thing, I would most definitely recommend reading this book for a different outlook and indeed a different path to happiness.

Hopefully I can make it through all four of these this weekend. These are pretty hefty books and The Children's Hospital is a chunkster! #YearOfTheChunksters We'll see how far I can make it.

More Bones: Scary Stories from Around the World | Howard Schwartz, Arielle North Olson

Pickpick

Very entertaining! Simple scary stories from around the world. I love that, under the title of each story, it states what country/region the story is from. While the reading level is at about middle grade, some of the content may not be. Some of these stories are pretty gruesome. Loved the artwork too. Great addition to the stories.

JaclynW Oooh fun! 2y

#BookMemeWars

BeansPage PLEASE NOTE: Due to our current situation I am aware that shipping even an envelope with a bookmark overseas would prove somewhat difficult if not impossible in some cases.

Unsheltered: A Novel | Barbara Kingsolver

Bailedbailed

Damn, I wanted to like this book so much! The first chapter deals with a suicide and the way the book describes the circumstances triggered me and distressed me nearly to the point of having to stop reading it. But I tried to continue.
Then the book took a wild turn where it seemed as if the author was preaching to the reader about her own personal views. Political nonsense that no one really wants or needs to hear from a work of fiction.

Had to share this!
A gift from my awesome sister ❤️
Unfortunately I can't share all the pictures that are in this book but just know that it is incredible for any horror fan! Especially if you suffer from anxiety.
