@ljuliel asked Littens to share a book that touched them emotionally so here goes (you don‘t need to explain but ... 😊). I haven‘t been a teenager in quite some time and it had been years since I‘d read YA but something made me pick this series up at a horrific time while struggling in Mumbai. It reminded me how much of an escape and a joy reading could be & bought me back to myself. It was also one of the first books I posted to Litsy 😊♥️😊

ljuliel Wonderful story to go with this book. They really can sometimes remove us from real life and take us elsewhere. Not all books do that for me, but it‘s great when I find one like that. 1mo

Slight bandwagon but I figure one can‘t complain if one isn‘t willing to step up and try and help fix those issues!!
1. Interacting with other passionate readers and being part of a generally lovely community.
2. Popularity contests, bullying and photo contests (that ones gonna be controversial, I know 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂)
3. Actual conversation about actual books
4. Patchily, tbh I got sick of my timeline drowning under swaps
5. Yes BUT I think they ⬇️

GlassAsDiamonds Need to be regulated, especially swaps that seem to have just become exclusionary (US Only... 😡) and excessive. I‘ve volunteered a few times to be the “back up” and sent “replacements” for those who were scammed but there doesn‘t seem to be anyone moderating/ policing the scammers or even recording them. 6. I would like Litsy to work in all ways through the app (e.g. the add function) and to have a private message option. (edited) 1mo
Megabooks Definitely with you on private messages!! 1mo
ljuliel Thank you for your opinions. I‘m glad to hear them. I agree on the swaps. It‘s dysfunctional in a lot of areas. Some people spend a truckload and get sometimes nothing in return. I had some long lasting interactions regarding that. ( I‘d rather not get into here): but it left a nasty taste in my mouth. I also think there have been way too many. I brought that up awhile back, it was sot down on that opinion. 1mo

ljuliel #2 has me a bit puzzled, but I guess a lot goes on in here that we aren‘t all aware of. I‘m sorry if there have been bullying and popularity issues. Since I don‘t understand what happened, I can‘t comment much further than that. If there‘s any way I can help you, tag me. You can email me if you want to discuss it further. I‘ve had a bit of my own behind the scenes stuff but I choose not to post it for everyone to read. 1mo
julesG @ljuliel Oh, now that you brought it up. Yes, the bullying is something I don't want to see again. It was nasty and probably led to a few of the "old-timers" leaving Litsy. Also, private messages would be cool. 1mo
ljuliel Thanks @julesG I guess all that slipped right by me. Or maybe it happened when I was gone. I‘m sorry that happened in here and hope it was somehow remedied or the bullying party has left. 1mo
GlassAsDiamonds @ljuliel from what I‘v seen... unfortunately not but rehashing history is unlikely to be productive at this juncture. I think moderators would be really helpful in that sort of situation (maybe also with swaps) because the worst just turned into mob chaos. Popularity is a tad difficult - I known the advice when joining is “FOLLOW EVERYONE” but I struggled with that because I wanted interaction not just “liking random posts” if that makes sense? 1mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Megabooks wouldn‘t that be great??? I‘d love to actually just be able to stay in the Litsy ecosystem and chat with people! 😊😊😊 (edited) 1mo
GlassAsDiamonds @julesG yeah, there were a few really nasty situations there weren‘t there? It turned me off for quite a while as well, especially since there wasn‘t really any recourse for people - shades of those viciously idiotic twitter mobs, not cool. 1mo
ljuliel I understand. I‘ve been online for many years and usually if an event happens between 2 people and others jump in, it can get ugly. Sadly, Litsy isn‘t perfect and we have some of that behind the scenes stuff going on , even in the place that everyone thinks is great. It can taint your opinion a bit , I know. I don‘t believe in following everyone . I follow the ones who‘ve been in here since I started who are interesting and post books I like. 1mo
Megabooks @julesG @ljuliel @GlassAsDiamonds I vaguely remember all the bullying and feeling bullied at times. (I had some medical treatments in 2018 that made much of 2017-18 inaccessible in my mind.) I don‘t think it‘s good to rehash that, but I do think there‘s still some competitive BS over litfluence, which is ridiculous. (Honestly, even if we got rid of litfluence, people some people would still want “likes” same as Instagram.) 👇 1mo
julesG @Megabooks I agree 100%. Some people just post to increase their Litfluence, posting lots of pictures off the internet to get likes. Furthermore, I dislike when Littens post several reviews of one book. It can make or break the review ratio of a book. 1mo
Megabooks I find popularity about as interesting as belly button lint. I plan on filling this out @ljuliel but if something doesn‘t interest me, I scroll past. If someone‘s posts consistently don‘t interest me, I unfollow. I hope people find my posts interesting. But I‘m just trying my best to have fun and talk (mostly) about books! 1mo
Cinfhen #PREACH 🙌🏻 1mo
ljuliel Thank you @megabooks. I‘m very sorry you also had bullying problems. I don‘t remember seeing it , but it‘s a bit hard to keep up with a group this huge , so things could slide right on by and if you don‘t read every single word of every post, you might miss something. This place is maybe a bit like Disneyland . Much more fun to visit that to wear the Donald Duck suit. What I‘m saying is, on the outside, it looks good, but underneath might look bad 1mo
ljuliel And on the point thing . Who the heck cares ? I never go to someone‘s page to see how many points they have. When I left before and asked them to close my account, I had probably 200,000 posts ? I started back at zero when I came back. To me, it‘s just an extra quirk.Its not important. 1mo
Megabooks @ljuliel exactly! I use my litfluence as a chance to do giveaways if I catch a cool number on a screenshot, but otherwise, I don‘t even think about it. 1mo
wanderinglynn @GlassAsDiamonds @Megabooks I am so sorry you both had negative bullying experiences. You both are awesome and I enjoy reading your posts. I‘m glad you both stayed. ❤️❤️ 1mo

Lovely book (also my #Booked2019 #Fall #2019release book!! 😊😊😊) by illustrator and author Megan Hess about her top 10 French Fashion houses. I admit to having to google a bunch of these & learnt that I love brands I‘d never heard of (Lanvin Blue, where have you been all my life??) & that I‘m never going to view a handbag as a monetary investment piece. 😂 Still, short & enjoyable and the book itself is a delight of gilded edges & thick pages.

Cinfhen She has some stunning books! They are all gorgeous to peruse 🤩 1mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Cinfhen I had completely forgotten I also had her Coco Chanel biography until the gilded edges triggered the memory! 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Wow — sounds like a lovely book! 1mo
GlassAsDiamonds @BarbaraTheBibliophage it really is! Almost like half a book, half a graphic novel... if those had gilt edges and award wining drawings of French fashion! 😊♥️😊 Worth the read I think. 1mo

Great message but not for me. Written as a plea to society at large, the author highlights just how much of a difference you can make with a small garden, especially to birds & insects & offers proof of how possible it is to effect change but she‘s so angsty & depressing that the message is all but lost. It‘s also an odd straddle of genres, part gardening & part very self facing memoir of her mothers stroke. #borrownotbuy as @Cinfhen would say 😂

Cinfhen You seem to be reading lots of those #MoreMehThanYeah titles lately 😬 1mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Cinfhen seriously!! The anthologies I kinda expected (general rule - I usually only buy them when I really like an author. The Theodora Goss was worth the purchase price of the first but the second...🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️) but surely I deserve a break with these others?!?!?!? 😂😂😂🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️😂😂😂 1mo

Okay! This weeks #BFCr4 update!

Books read this week: 3 so I‘m on target for the 12!

Fitness: OMFG scar massage. I‘ve done it, I‘ve sworn a lot, the scar is less horrible than it was so 🤞🏻. I‘ve done the movement exercises and am thrilled that at the start of the week I couldn‘t hold a bread knife but now I can. Still with a lot of pain but I CAN! I managed walking twice but am claiming a weather foul, it‘s rained & I can‘t risk falls ⬇️

GlassAsDiamonds Wellness is spotty: I‘ve got a 50/50 journaling success and totally missed the ball on photographing movement gains. Still, better than last week!!! #BFCr4 #BFC #bookfitnesschallenge #bookfitnesschallengeround4 (edited) 2mo

Toil & Trouble | Tess Sharpe, Jessica Spotswood

Mehso-so

Another anthology with much the same response: the Tess Sharpe story was brilliant. Anna-Marie McLemore & Tehlor Kay Mehia were also quite good. The others were a mix of mediocre, mhe, annoying & outright depressing. Probably someone more interested in dystopians would enjoy this more than me and I‘ve given it a higher mark because it‘s extremely diverse, well written & well edited but I‘m just not an anthology fan. #MoreMehThanYeh #borrownotbuy

Halloween reading!!! I‘ve rarely found an anthology in which every story was great & this did not break that streak. The Theodora Goss story was brilliant as was the Rachael Caine. Armstrong and Kenyon wrote in their own universes & it was obvious knowledge was missing. Of the others, a few were brilliant, most mediocre but it‘s an anthology so... I would recommend it if you‘re a fan of Goss in particular but #borrownotbuy as @Cinfhen would say.

Cinfhen Great review and yes... some books are #MoreMehThanYeh like @TrishB likes to say 😉😘 2mo

It‘s a good book and a useful addition to Rubin‘s canon but brutally, I finished it because I got sick of seeing this on my “Currently Reading” stack 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂.

If you‘re one of her podcast listeners, and I am, the book feels like a lot of repetition with limited new material but I still think there‘s value in knowing how people, including ones self, respond to Inner and Outer Expectations and it‘s readable, well written and well collated.

Okay, I‘m updating my #BFCr4 goals. Light-ish though the others were, I couldn‘t manage daily walks in Singapore, the heat made the swelling in my arm just too extreme BUUUT I‘ve now got hideously painful OT to do so... yay? #BFC

The Babysitters Coven | Kate M. Williams
post image
Pickpick

Loved it. 😊 It‘s very much the first book in a series & probably will resonate most with people who read Babysitters Club books then watched Buffy (so maybe it‘s a YA book mostly likely to be a hit with readers who grew up in the 90‘s 🤔) but it‘s light, funny, fast paced & poignant all at the same time. The editing is tight & the writing is elegantly well tuned. Teenagers might miss a lot of the pop culture but I suspect they‘d enjoy it as is.

Capturing the Devil | Kerri Maniscalco
post image
Mehso-so

The completion of a story arc & the series, this is a much stronger offering than the last two books but it was not for me. The author has moments of amazing lyricism but she‘s also inclined to broody hyperbolic angst & florid flights of language fancy, neither of which work for me. The story also messes with historical timelines, slips between 2019 vernacular & that of the late 1800‘s & uses a thoroughly implausible mcguffin ⬇️

GlassAsDiamonds to force the action along which irritated me. I suspect if you were a teenage girl with a love for gothic melodrama, neither of which I am, the style might appeal and there are some strong, memorable quotes but having finished the series, I‘m highly unlikely to read from this author again.

Oh good lord... 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ Literally about to run off alone into the night to confront a stalking murderer in attire that prompted pages worth of angst two books ago and would have seen her thrown out of any actually respectable hotel if not arrested (trousers but in 1889) 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ Seems we‘re giving over continuity and historical accuracy to become a bad gothic melodrama. If only she‘d burned a note and worn a silk nightgown...🤦🏻‍♀️

Spoilers blanked out but this sort of deviation into florid flights of fancy is what‘s really turning me off this series. I‘d potentially understand it if it was a penny dreadful or a tropey romance but it‘s not. It‘s a decent book with a few glaring and frustrating historian errors but these hysterics are not even remotely my cup of tea.

Okay... so, a tad light on for details but that‘s because I only got clearance from my surgeon to do anything more than “sit still and don‘t sweat” this morning....which is great because I‘m going stir crazy but so limited it‘s driving me insane already (I can walk, that‘s it but... let‘s do this thing).

Escaping From Houdini | Kerri Maniscalco
post image
Mehso-so

Oh thank goodness that‘s over....! While the imagery is stunning, it cries out for brutal editing because the language is florid and overblown. Audrey Rose, a character with promise in the first book, spends most of her time whining about decency, romantic indecision or (*gasp*) desire, an unfortunate fall for a previously interesting character. Once again, actions do not match character ages & seem shoehorned down to make the book YA. 😭🤦🏻‍♀️😭

Gods of Jade and Shadow | Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I can‘t bring myself to remove the Mylar so please excuse my shiny photo but this book (which arrived yesterday 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂) was a delight. Mayan mythology blended with magical realism and a coming into the self quest; Gods of Jade and Shadow is a well written, well edited and well researched joy to read. It avoids the usual cliches of Death and the Maiden and pastiches of death to bring some originality to the trope. Recommended with gusto.

GlassAsDiamonds @Megabooks seems like that‘s more and more likely 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ (well, him or maybe one of the characters?). 4mo
GlassAsDiamonds @LibrarianRyan yeah. I was hoping there was something in it to warrant the label (mysticism or *something* but it‘s sounding less and less like that‘s likely to be so 🤦🏻‍♀️😭).Is there an LGBTQA+ character? (edited) 4mo
CarolynM @Megabooks That was the first thing I thought too. Bet they don't stock Armistead Maupin or Alan Hollinghurst at all, @GlassAsDiamonds 🙄 4mo
GlassAsDiamonds @CarolynM now I‘m going to need to look ... 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂 At least they do stock these I suppose but sheesh. They do NOT stock the William Gibson anthology that includes the Wired article that got Gibson and Wired banned from publication here in the 90‘s but I did rather think sexual preference of an author rather beyond needing a parental warning... even here. 4mo

Turns out Singaporean Kinokuniya‘s feel the need to label things .... oddly. This was in with the graphic novels and since it‘s Singapore and they do understand anime aka “all illustrated things aren‘t necessarily for children”, it was a long way away from the kids sections.... 🤔🤔🤔🤔

Just. Woah. Kierkegaard is a swirling mass of contradiction. He writes nature and the joy of the natural world beautifully and easily hold his own with the contemporary he‘s often compared to, Thoreau but he‘s also a “Faith is unconditional obedience”/ God *fearing* (emphasis on fear) fundamentalist Christian, a theology that‘s not mine and doesn‘t appeal. He also hangs the basis of his hard core theology on the placement of single words in the ⬇️

GlassAsDiamonds New Testament (“first”) in these discourses but he‘s writing in Danish in relation to a Bible most likely in Latin, that was itself a translation from Ancient Greek of the written account of a speech most likely delivered in Aramaic (the Sermon on the Mount) AND he wants the placement of these words to drive his version of highly fundamentalist Christian living. Rely on Google Translate *once* to know how nuts that is so... weird book but poetic. 4mo

Kierkegaard does my head in. We‘ve flipped from a half a discourse on the need for absolute and unconditional obedience to God, replete with hiding from the Devil and quivering in fear at the awful patience of God, to exulting in the joy of a chorus of singing birds. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ His expression of the glory of the natural world would be a joy to read ... if only he wasn‘t quite so permanently terrified for the state of his immortal soul.

See..... this is why Kierkegaard and I aren‘t destined to agree. I‘m very bad at people telling me to just be quiet and agree with their thesis.

Stress reading RANDOM Amazon finds .... Not a bad book all things considered. Brilliant escapism and a very skilful blend of what seems to be well researched Native American and Celtic mythology. Fast paced and decently plotted, this filled its stress reading brief and was strong enough to tempt me to pick up others in the series.

GlassAsDiamonds @LoverofLit - this could also work for you if you preferred paranormal without romance. 😊 2mo

Its a brilliant book, although I do think perhaps it‘s misnamed and mistargeted: so far it‘s really about stress management in humans (it‘s seems a pity to restrict its specific target audience to burnout in women but let‘s see how it unfolds).

In other news, I think I need to work on my stress reading 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂 The must been a middle ground somewhere but apparently my brain isn‘t having a bar of it!!!! 😂😂😂😂

A very silly book from a time people earnestly believed animals didn‘t have souls. Sitting on the floor of a vet hospital ward with Puff while the lovely Muslim guy from yesterday visits his VERY TALKATIVE KITTY - this paragraph is total BS, as is his “blissful ignorance” argument. One wonders how humanity progressed when you read this.

Yep, arguing w. a towering bastion of intellectual argument who...was a deluded & ignorant. Room kitty agrees.

Megabooks Animals definitely have souls!! How are y‘all today? I hope you‘re not upset with me, and I really, really hope Puff is improving. What a brave girl! ICU is no fun. 💕💕💕 5mo
Crazeedi I hope Puff is improving, sending hugs 5mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Megabooks NO!! I‘m so sorry I didn‘t get back to you - it was 3am my time and I fell asleep holding my phone!!! Thank you SO much for all your insight and reaching out! I had a skim of the article (omg we need this vaccine ASAP) and had an idea what to ask which was very appreciated. Today they said that the results seemed to point away from lymphomas but were still waiting and watching (but inching SO SLOWLY forward). 😊♥️😊🙏🏻 5mo

GlassAsDiamonds @Crazeedi thank you! Slowly slowly slowly inching there it seems. She‘s probably got another four days in hospital they think so she‘s still really sick but her temperature is down (🥳) and she‘s responding (slowly 😭) to treatment!!! Not out of the woods yet and definitely need those hugs 🤗 5mo
Megabooks @GlassAsDiamonds oh hallelujah!! I‘m so happy she‘s improving! Still sending positive vibes to her and hugs to you! 💙💙 5mo
Crazeedi @GlassAsDiamonds will keep you both in my thoughts. Hang in there! It's so hard to watch our kitties hurting! 5mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Megabooks oh, she‘s so sick but I will take that hope! The lovely vet called with the results & told me that was the good news but she‘d have to stay in hospital probably for the weekend because she‘s still responding slowly .... I was half expecting a terrible diagnosis so I actually asked what the bad news was! 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂 I think she was very confused. 5mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Crazeedi thank you ♥️ & oh man, is it ever! I just want to be able to explain that it‘s okay and she‘s there to heal 😭♥️♥️😭 Such trust they place in us. ♥️ 5mo

Still plugging on with Kierkegaard .... on reading this, I‘m convinced he‘d never once actually met a child who wasn‘t terrified of him. He‘s got quite a lyric turn of phrase when he wants, especially when he‘s invoking nature but he‘s also a die hard fundamentalist (Calvin?) & we don‘t share a theology so. A distracting intellectual pursuit (Puffs responding to treatment which is AMAZING AND NEEDS TO CONTINUE!)

Lauram I‘m happy things are improving for your cat. (edited) 5mo

GlassAsDiamonds @Megabooks ooohhh.... you‘re a vet?!?! Cool! What‘s your speciality? (And yeah...maybe different reading material for tomorrow. I didn‘t realise Kierkegaard was a Christian theologian & the other people visiting their kitty were Muslims. In a country with a lot of militant Christian proselytising, the last thing I wanted was for them to feel uncomfortable, especially with a sick kitty so I was editing out a lot of words (& shared treats 😊)! 5mo

Megabooks @GlassAsDiamonds I was in small animal private practice, but my last job was in research and development at a supplement company. 5mo
Megabooks What‘s going on with Puff if you don‘t mind me asking? I hope she recovers quickly! 5mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Megabooks not at all and any insight you‘ve got would be DEEPLY appreciated - she was a rescue at somewhere around a week/ ten days old, we‘ve had her since she was about 4 weeks old but as a result, she‘s got no “correct” cat responses which has been tricky for the vets. They‘re saying an infection of the ileum? Walls 1cm thick. Her temp was 40.3 but I think only for a few hours (paranoid cat Mum). She‘s on drip fluids and a feeding tube 5mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Megabooks I‘m worried that today (she crashed Sunday night) her temp seemed up and breathing shallower but they decided since she‘s so screamy getting her temp taken to do it tomorrow when she‘s having a full follow up ultrasound under sedation. I mentioned the breathing to the vet so it was on note but have no idea what to do or ask or expect. Also some raised pancreas numbers but they thought those could be stress?? 5mo
Megabooks I hate to say this, but my other thought besides infection is GI lymphoma. Have you lived in a country where there is feline leukemia or FIV? Has she been been tested for either? Being positive would make it more likely to be lymphoma. Either can be passed through the placenta, so she wouldn‘t necessarily have to have been around other cats to have it. It‘s hard to tell infection from lymphoma from even IBS without a biopsy. Has she had one? 5mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Megabooks and (stop me when this is annoying - Puff‘s my first cat and now I‘m feeling like everything we‘ve done, because it was mainly in China and India could have massive huge holes in it. We only just found out that the Mumbai vet had left out her FELV vaccine - blood tests cleared THAT, thank god but it was a really horrible moment). Do cats need supplements and how much do companies research & test those? 5mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Megabooks yes FIV is rampant in both India and China and I suspect feline leukemia is in India at least but she was tested for both after that first night and they said she was clear. She‘s had a blood test, ultrasound and urine test. No biopsy yet. If the blood tests are clear, can it still be lymphoma? 5mo
Megabooks Yes. Here‘s an article https://www.vetfolio.com/learn/article/gastrointestinal-lymphoma-in-cats I‘m glad they tested her for FIV/FeLV, and I‘m glad you‘re in Singapore. Supplements are a little more complicated. We mainly worked on sick pet ones and ran our operation more like a pharmaceutical company than a typical supplement company. 5mo

Hunter | Anna Hackett
post image
Pickpick

Stress read - Anna Hackett has a number of series & I‘ve read books in each. The later ones are generally stronger than the earlier ones in terms of character development and consistency but they are all short, action romance (this series is also sci-fi/ futuristic) with a HEA and positioned in a larger story arc. They‘re not high literature but they‘re firmly within the cannon of their genre and great comfort reads. Recommended. ⬇️
#catsofLitsy

GlassAsDiamonds Hunter is a series of three novellas that bridges Hackett‘s Gladiators House Galen and Gladiators House Rhine series‘. It won‘t make much sense without the larger story arcs and is spoiler heavy for the previous series but, for all the ongoing “OMG THERE ARE MORE HUMANS” just bugs me as a device, Hunter is a nice bridging of those series and the stories - a Christmas novella, and a Corsair and Casino wrap up respectively, are solid and enjoyable. 5mo
