Happy #manicmonday it‘s a two day work week for me!! Jody I hope your Monday is a good 😊
Taking a break from Gideon the Ninth to dig into Her Body and other parties. I am deep into a cold so I have no desire to move or so much else. Nigel agreed with this plan. The quote reads “god should have made girls lethal when he made monsters of men” Elisabeth Hewer
#wondrouswednesday call me the white rabbit (I‘m late, I‘m late) terrible 🤷🏻♀️ I have been working, going home and falling asleep haha. I start some much needed vacation time next Wednesday!
1. I recently watched Bell Book and Candle- cute
2. Rainy days are for reading and working on fun projects!
3. I will be enjoying the Freeport Fall Festival!
Thank you for the tag @JoScho 😊🖤
A happy book birthday to a friend of mine!! @Empathicwoman book Empathic Mastery is out today and I can‘t be more excited for her! It is a beautiful book that is absolutely empowering. Please check it out! Also how do I add it to the book list on here? Starting today 10/1 and up until 5 am EST 10/2 the ebook is 99cents!!
A great collection of spooky, eerie, and unsettling tales. A lot of the endings are open. Fair warning for those that like to have an ending to your story. I liked it because it helped to make them more unsettling. What happened in the end to the man that walked into the woods?!
I have started reading Dark tales in earnest. I love a short story collect and I‘m 4 stories in, and enjoying these. Not really horror, they have a twilight zone feel, that I really like.
I also want to welcome to Litsy a friend, @Empathicwoman she is a wonderful lady 😊
Finished and really enjoyed. Pam takes a look at witches throughout history and what the word witch means. It is also about her experience being a witch and how she came to it. It doesn‘t dive super deep but it definitely makes me wantY to find out so more. I have also started listening to her podcast The Witch Wave. She has a super soothing voice.
This was a box of summer! @JoScho thank you so much for all the wonderful goodies! I had to put the wrapping paper in the background. I opened this up and smiled. I‘m wearing the pins today. The gnome bath bomb is the cutest. This picture doesn‘t do the jaws funko justice, it is so cute! He is eating my Swedish fish! Both books I am looking forward to reading! A great swap! Thank you so much Jody 🖤🖤 #highfivetosummerswap #hftss
Finishing up some coffee and having a quiet Saturday morning reading. A great start 😊 I hope everyone has a great day.
I know it‘s not Wednesday but I fell alseep early last night. Thankfully it‘s Thursday and this long week is almost over! Thanks for the tag @JoScho 💕
1 The Witch Elm by Gillian French It is waiting impatiently for me on my stack
2 American Gods
3 right now my physical stack is 25, my list is way longer
4. Lady From The Black Lagoon (highly recommend) Reading Waking the Witch right now 🖤🖤
I know a lot of people want to call this a Lord of the Flies with girls. I don‘t fully agree with that. Girls bodies start changing in strange and creature like ways when they hit puberty. The Navy told them to stay on the island stay behind the fence where their school is. Don‘t break quarantine, they will find a cure for them. Fair warning it might be a bit gruesome for some. I usually shy away from body horror. This didn‘t bother me.
I don‘t know how many have shared this yet. I am here for it!!! Who has read the book??? Any thoughts on who should play a young Frances and Jet???
With the craziness that had been going on earlier this summer. I hadn‘t been reading as much. So I have started a habit of reading before work. Still working on a regular yoga practice 🤷🏻♀️I‘m enjoying the story of this one and I know some have said it can get gory. So far it‘s been safe to read while I eat my breakfast!
1. Raspberry toaster strudels. I might pick up a box every once and a great while- it‘s a fancy pop tart!
2. I have been on a really tight budget this year but I would probably say the Princess of Power tank from Her Universe. They had a big sale and I love the way it fits.
3. Started Wilder Girls by Rory Power this morning.
Thanks for the tag @JoScho 🙋🏻♀️
I really enjoyed this story. As a one shot fantasy book it was perfect. It had the feel of Vikings and for those gamers Out there I kept seeing the main character as Alloy from Horizon Zero Dawn. If you like fantasy but get overwhelmed by some of the deep worlds this is a good one. No supernatural or magic in this but the story and characters are so good you won‘t miss that.
1. Swedish Fish,
2. Ground Coffee, Mint, peach or Citrus Tea
3. Pine/ Fur/ Spruce sent, woodsmoke
4. A dog
5. Read, hike, crochet, knit, bake
6. Nature, foxes, ocean
7. Purple, Blue, Green
8. Darker Shade of Magic, American Gods, Good Omens
9. Classic bookmarks are great also the wood ones. Don‘t care for dangly bits on my bookmarks.
Finished this prequel to Into the Drowning Deep. It is just as enjoyable! There is a great atmosphere and sense of tension that is created. I LOVE these mermaids they are vicious and believable as a natural evolution/adaptation. Which helps to make it creepier!
I know it‘s only the beginning of August. I know it‘s still Summer and I don‘t like to rush things but Michael‘s has started putting out Fall and Halloween items. Including their Lemax Spooky Town and how could we not include a haunted Library to our little town!!! I want to make it an all year decoration 🖤🖤🖤 it‘s $85 but with a 40% off coupon it was $51 and we have a gift card.
Finished this morning! Another enjoyable thriller from Riley Sager. Jules takes a job as an apartment sitter in the luxurious Bartholomew. The rules might seem strict and kind of strange but she could use the twelve thousand dollars she will be paid to stay there for three months. When an apt sitter goes missing and Jules learns that sitter is not the only one that has gone missing she is racing to find answers before she could share the same fate
A quiet morning reading. I am fully engaged on finding out what is going on in the Bartholomew. I hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday 😊
I have been a book buying ban because my stack is ridiculous and I haven‘t really been reading the last few months. I have been able to slowly get back into reading and after the last two months being the worst I have had in a long time. I thought I would spoil myself. Plus I sold back a bunch of books, so I didn‘t have to spend any of my cash to get these. Technically I didn‘t buy these?
@JoScho thanks for the tag 😊
1. Oh French toast with a side of bacon or a Cinnamon Bun with a side of bacon- definitely a cup of coffee
2. So there is this Irish Mexican restaurant in Maine and I just would have never thought of combining those two.
3. I love to read and eat!
4. I can‘t have ice cream (dairy allergy) so I would make a dairy free raspberry with Oreo crumbles
5. @vkois88 @Lovesbooks87
Morning reading before work. I am loving it so far. Looking forward to the weekend when I can just read uninterrupted. Stay Sexy and Don‘t Get Murdered🖤🖤🖤
I finally finished a book in what feels like ages. I‘m over 2019 and would like to just spend the rest of the year reading, thank you. This beautiful book was so wonderful to read. It has a Noir feel a little with PI‘s and a murder to solve, in a high school for magical kids. Oh and estranged sisters! I have some many feelings about the family situation.
I was finally able to get this gorgeous omnibus for a really great price. The Golden Compass was the first book to start my bookish side really out. It came out July 1995 and I remember finding it at the library and at home it was a super hot day so I laid on my bed and just read the whole day. It was the first book I couldn‘t put down. I finished that day and I couldn‘t wait for the next one. The first series I became obsessed with.
I am so glad May is over. I lost both my grandfathers and it just felt like a hazy month. It has been constantly raining so that doesn‘t help. June is here and it‘s finally starting to warm up and have the sun come out. I haven‘t been able to consistently read anything but I‘m hoping to get my reading back on track even just for the comfort it gives me. I picked these books this weekend and I‘m really looking forward to them. Plus baby plants 🖤
It‘s a quiet Saturday morning and I woke up early. My grandfather died early Friday morning and I spent the day with my grandmother. Then most of the family arrived by the afternoon. It hurts to think about it too much. I hope some graphic novels will be a nice distraction.
Thanks for the tag @JoScho 😊
1. I haven‘t planned anything yet but hoping to do some kind of camping. Either by tent or rent a cabin
2. Lock Every Door by Riley Sager
3. Sorbet (lactose intolerant so now ice cream for me)
4. 96 F Maine doesn‘t get ridiculously high but we sure do get the humidity
I have been looking for short story collections and separately more female horror authors. The universe heard and threw this book at me! I‘m really looking forward to reading these. That title had me! 🖤Nigel butt snuck into the photo so #dogsoflitsy 🖤
From Sweatpants & Coffee
I probably won‘t be doing much reading. I will spend most of it outdoors. This is always a tricky day for me and I need to stay out of my head.
For all the wonderful mothers out there, Happy Mother‘s Day 💕
I got some really lousy news. I would like to crawl under my blanket and not come out for awhile, but I can‘t. So I bought myself a comfort read in a beautiful hardcover edition. Do you have a comfort read? Or an author that is your go to for when you just need something good?
