3rd book read to complete 1st challenge of HP winter magical readathon. I was supposed to read a 500 pages book but I read 3😉This is an ok to so-so story for me but I know many people will love it because is cute, funny, lovely scenes with cats & dogs (love Pita the cat & her owner aunt Sally) sexy scenes and a lot of romance.Funny scenes between lovely friends but sometimes I felt boring with Willa's character🙄 too long to take a decision😕3⭐️

2nd book read to complete 1st challenge in HP winter magical readathon.This is a retelling of Christmas Carol.Noelle is stocked in a dept store😲& there she will meet not a ghost but a guardian angel that will help her to find her Christmas spirit.They will travel in time by using peculiar shoes👠😂It is a simple, funny, heartwarming, cheese story but I'm in the spirit for hallmark stories.3.2⭐️I wish I could wear those fancy brands mentioned here

Book 1 in HP winter magical readathon.I modified the rule😲I had to read a 500 pages book, well I read 2 books instead😉A gothic romance, suspense, mystery thriller book.Plot can be predictable but you forget about that because it was beautifully written. It can be boring for some people because it is very descriptive and slow in the action but I loved it.It caused me anxiety at some point. Cheesy end but I didn't care😍3.9⭐️Thanks @mabell

mabell Yay!! I‘m so glad you liked it!! I think I‘m a credulous reader - I didn‘t predict anything 😂 4h

Book discussed at BookMarkPR, I couldn't assist to the discussion😢. 2nd & last book read on November😔GR has an excellent synopsis about this book. The story is about Frankie, her family & another not living person. You will read about the cruel life in a orphanage during WWII and how that experience impact our main character personality.It is a sad but beautiful story.According to the author, it is based on her latest mother in law story. 3.85⭐️

I only read 2 books during November and this is one of them. It was a book discussed in BookMarkPR during Oct but I read it later. It was ok and I enjoyed it after 2 suspense books in a row. It is cheesy (with some mild hot scenes?☺️, funny with some clichés. Very simple magic world with some repetitive scenes.3.2⭐️Very YA book. In my book club most of the persons enjoyed it very much. It was just cute.If you like YA books you might enjoy it.

Just look my new booksleeve by @LibrarianRyan store😍❤️❤️❤️❤️Beautiful, so practical, high quality! A perfect Christmas gift for a book lover! Thank you so much LibrarianRyan and sorry for buying the sample 😂but I'm so happy that I have it here with me. I will use it right now! It arrived a couples of days ago but I was so busy with the move that I picked it up later.

4thhouseontheleft That is beautiful! @LibrarianRyan you make book sleeves? I didn‘t know! I need the link to your store! (edited) 1w

LibrarianRyan I'm glad you like it. Someone had to be the first. I love this fabric. It was really hard not to keep one of these for myself. I have some new fabric by the same designer that I can not wait to cut up. but it will not happen until the new year. 1w

1. In this genre, mystery in haunted houses, ghosts, witches, and dark twisted retellings 2. I don't know much about horror movies. Open for recommendations. 3. I don't know. Usually, what they provoke me is anxiety but I don't think I have read a very scary one. 4. Nope, recommendations? 5. Medium level gore?🤔😂6. Is there an horror book but not too scary? Recommendations?

Chrissyreadit Did you read Bird Box? I like Stephen King and Dean Koontz. I am hoping to read Feed that might be horror too. 3w
Gissy @Chrissyreadit Yes, I read Bird Box and also I listened the audiobook which was fantastic. I liked it. It was not scary for me but it provoked me anxiety in some scenes. From Stephen King I read Pet Sematary and The Outsider. I really enjoyed both of them. I could say that Pet Sematary has some scary scenes and The Outsider, well it was gory and creepy but not too scary for me but I really enjoyed it. I haven't read anything yet by Koontz. 3w
Chrissyreadit @Gissy I‘m just getting back into horror so I have only read a handful of books. Feed is on my TBR though. I just finished The Broken Girls and thought it was good. 3w
Gissy @Chrissyreadit I have that one I want to read it. Her books are very similar to cozy mysteries. I read Lost Among The living and I enjoyed it. But I guess my books will be in boxes until January because many things are happening at this time. I have in my shelf books received in recent swaps and the last books that were supposed to be packed but I decided to kept them handy☺️On December I think I will have more time to read🤞 3w

1.I use various techniques to take care of myself.One is to have a momento of silence, alone in a place without distractions a moment to quiet my thoughts.I also use breathing techniques when I feel anxious or with anger.When I want to be in peace, a quiet place with a low light & candles.Sometimes I use music like nature sounds or soft new age songs.Thanks @DaveGreen7777 @mabell @Chrissyreadit @Avanders @JenlovesJT47 @Stacypatrice @kamoorephoto

It is better late than never☺️1.There are a couple, like Dostoyevsky, Poe, A. Christie & others, 2.I just want to know about their passion to write, how their ideas came. I think that artists in general are so intense in their emotions in their feelings and so unique in how they express that in their work. 3. 🤔Like 500? Near to 800?

These are my 2 The Outsider editions. Maybe the idea of what the outsider is, was not necessarily too creepy for me but the novel has its creepy scenes. I had read only 2 King's novel and I love his character driven style. This novel has some sensitive graphic scenes like child sexual abuse. The end was ok but I really liked enjoyed this novel specially in this season👍3.85⭐️🖤🖤🖤Thank you @BookwormAHN & to my mysterious #AllHollowsReadSwap match

Book discussed in October at BookMarkPR.We also had an interview with author through Skype.Story is related mostly with events that occur in the afterlife world where you will see treasons, betrayals, love. Author explained that story is based basically on history & traditions of Malaysia.I love to know about traditions & history from other countries but some parts were strange for me but I liked her writing style. I really enjoyed it. 3.65/3.7⭐️

Liatrek I‘m currently listening to the audio and really enjoying it. 1mo
Gissy @Liatrek There is a mysterious character who Li Lan will follow. I can't say anymore without spoil the story. I liked that character. We asked if there will be a sequel but at this moment it is not contemplated, but you will see that a sequel will be nice. 1mo

In 1893 a whole town disappeared leaving no trace of what happened.In 2009, a group of travelers will visit this town called "Abandon" each person has a different motive to visit it. Secrets, deception, treason, very graphic in violent scenes & if claustrophobia is your trigger I will not recommend this to you.End was from so-so to meh but I still enjoyed it, "ambition can take out the worse in people".3.75⭐️thanks @BookwormAHN #ScreamathonSwap

Book received from @Q84 #CozySwap I enjoyed this book. You will know what happened mostly through character's interviews made by the police or investigators. Some parts reminded me the novel You. Many secrets will be revealed. I can't say much because in that first chapter the suspense starts. The end was ok but still I enjoyed the novel very much. 3.85⭐️Last tea bag received also from @Q84 so spicy and delicious😋

Gissy Thank you @Stacypatrice I have mix fillings with that movie.Interpretation was amazing with a sad story! Those words about not being loved, felt that never existed, suicidal ideation, childhood abuse, felt that therapist didn't care.It was though.But on the other hand it was so hard to see that collective violence and how he was recognized because of that. I saw it like a dystopian movie. But I don't know I was waiting something else. 2mo

Chrissyreadit That is great!!!! 2mo
LeahBergen Happy Birthday!!! 📚😘📚😘 2mo
Cpg @Gissy I am a “book collector” then! 😆😆😆 I am always on the holds lists for all the libraries in my county! I think if I could devote hours each day I would be an “avid reader”! ***But for now I‘ve got many “things” going on- with grandchildren and young adult children! Lots of joy though❣️ 2mo

#24B4Monday readathon last book read. I only participated for 13 hours of reading 2 books finished. This is a fast reading, one murder, one rape and not all was as it seemed. It is a cop/detective plot so if you don't like this type of topic this is not for you. As author mentioned, I sadly concur that some things in book can really happen in real life. I think it could be a good action movie. Other parts were ok 3.7⭐️ @TheReadingMermaid

Mehso-so

I started it this week but finished it as part of #24B4Monday readathon.It was so slow.Became interesting after page 160 with quite predictable ending.So sad in some parts.A suicide occurred in a bookstore & a lot of secrets will be revealed during the search of why he killed himself. In my opinion it was from ok to so-so but I'm glad I read it because I wanted for so long & it was in my tbrThank You @Avanders You gave me this like 1 yr ago. 3.4⭐️

MrBook 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2mo
Avanders Nice!! It‘s still on my own tbr 🤭😆 maybe I‘ll find time this month! 😁 2mo
Gissy @Avanders Read it because it has good parts a little slow for me but I'm still glad I read it and those sad parts were so heartbreaking😢I don't know how to explain it but in my case if the book is in my tbr I don't mind if the book is not as expected but I just want, need to read it no matter if it has low rating. I just want to discover it by myself. I love stories about books plus book has a nostalgic meaning, litsy swap given by you 😍❤️❤️❤️ 2mo

Yesterday I couldn't post any photo but today is my Day 7 in #7Covers7Days #CoverCrush I love covers or art where nature, human, animal, objects are part of each other in an integrated or diffuse way, giving the idea or a message about what is life. It could be like these covers, or Impressionism or at the style of Magritte or Dalí. Is this a thematic apperception test????? Thank you @julesG for invited me to participate in this game.

julesG 😘 Both lovely covers. Thanks for playing along. 2mo

These 2 scary #Screamathon boxes are in their super fast broom to @BookwormAHN haunted house👻They will arrive by Thursday @4thhouseontheleft This post office trip give me a flashback because 2 yrs ago I was sending a box a day before Hurricane Maria, today we are in tropical storm watch😳Take care to all of you who can be affected by this system. My heart is with persons from Texas & other islands that were affected by storms Karen and Imelda.

BookwormAHN I'll watch for them. Take care I know how much fun tropical storms are 🍀 3mo
JoScho I know you prefer hardcovers but are you cool with a few softcovers as well? 3mo
Gissy Well, I don't want to sound bad or ungrateful but usually my paperbacks are because books don't come in hardcover or because they are out of print or hard to find. Usually hardcovers are more resistant during the reading time specially for me. I suffer with paperbacks because I don't like to bend the cover or brake the spine. But you can find a lot of paperback books in my tbr that only comes in paperback. 3mo

Another cozy mystery. This story is ok simple.Developed in Ohio. A murder was committed in front of the Cheese Shop, who was accused? It will develop gossips, friendships, relations, disputes. As in the majority of this genre you will see the daily activities of this community with funny scenes and of course delicious recipes. I will like to read the 2nd book 3⭐️Thank you to @TK421 who gave me this book 2yrs? ago in a swap after Hurricane María

Day4 #7Covers7Days #CoverCrush Another one not read yet😳💀☠️🍂🍁The end pages of this book are pretty as well as book under jacket.

Chrissyreadit I love your candles!!!! 3mo
Gissy @Chrissyreadit I bought them at Alley's . Most of my things are packed and I don't think I will have the opportunity to decorate for Halloween, so what I did was that I bought some little things to add in my photos. That book is the U.K. Edition. Most of their covers are absolutely stunning. 3mo
Chrissyreadit @Gissy I need to get your new address! Can you email it to me? 3mo

Gissy @Chrissyreadit I will as soon as I moved. I'm still waiting for some documents from the other part. I will like to move during October but I really don't know exactly when. I hope that this can be resolved by the end of the month. I need all the good vibes and positive thinking from all of you in this process.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ 3mo
JoScho Hey lady! I am already having a blast shopping for you. Can you give me a list or pics of your creepy/Halloween/horror Funko Pops? You can email me at iheartlitsy@Gmail.com Thanks! 3mo
Gissy @JoScho I'm stalking you too!☺️Is there a theme that you will like me to follow? Are you obsessed with something at this time? Do you prefer to combine between physical books and ebooks? Well I'm newbie in this area. I will give you some alternatives but you can always choose. I trust your tastes. I will give you some now. Give a minute. 3mo
Gissy @JoScho Possible funkos: Carrie, George (from It movie), Coraline, Elvira, Pan ( from Pan's Labyrinth), the crow, Psycho, the demonic nun, ghost ( from game of thrones) Night King (GOT), from HP (Bellantrix, Mad Eye Pop, Dolores Umbridge, Valdermort, Malfoy. I don't have from LOR. Tell me about you, if there is something that you are collecting or that you want. 3mo
JoScho @Gissy I trust you completely and Halloween is my fave so I will love anything. I am good with physical and ebooks. I am already appreciative for your thoughtfulness. I will get you a list of spooky Funkos I have my eye on but you can totally pick something different. Anything in particular you would love to see in your package? I am so glad we got paired together! 3mo
Gissy @JoScho I will wait for that funko list. I didn't mention that I'm a hardcover lover😕but I will be ok with what you choose. 3mo
Gissy @JoScho don't forget to send me your funko list but I wanted to ask you if you have Sybil Trelawney from HP? I just bought two of them😳just send it to you as something extra. Let me know. 3mo
JoScho She is at the top of my list! She is amazing with her glasses and crystal ball! @Gissy (edited) 3mo
