Lulu is a successful psychotherapist, recently married to Nick. But Nick has a troubled past and as Lulu offers to help him face his childhood trauma, she uncovers a disturbing and frightening side to the man she loves. Fast paced thriller with a somewhat predictable story line. I was disappointed that the ending did not have the 'shocking twist' promised on the cover. Nonetheless entertaining and perfect as a beachy/one sitting read. #doublespin

marleed Oh good for you. When my son and DIL went to Paris they purchased this book for me too! With the stamp and cat bookmark! If you scroll down a few posts on this pic you can see how they posed the cover of this book in front of the store - all a they could give me that pic with my book! 1mo

This story of two suburban stay at home mothers had me hooked from the first few lines! It was a relatively short and fast paced page turner with unreliable characters and numerous twists and turns that had me constantly second guessing myself. A thoroughly enjoyable read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for providing a digital copy in return for an honest, unbiased review.

The Hatching: A Novel | Ezekiel Boone

Panpan

Who would say no to creepy killer spiders, global Except for a variety of descriptions of how the creepy spiders are attacking and random relationship tidbits of the characters, nothing else happens. This book is part of a trilogy so the author naturally leaves something for the other books in the series, but for goodness sake you need to give the reader some story/character development. Disappointing. ⭐️⭐️ #doublespin

TheAromaofBooks At least it's off the list!! 2mo

The Villa: A Novel | Rachel Hawkins

This slow burn thriller mystery, set in a gothic Italian villa with a mysterious true crime past was just what I needed to get me out of the reading slump that has plagued me over the last year. I enjoyed the dual timeline storytelling and the narration was excellent. This is the perfect beachy, vacation read. #bookspin

I‘ve been working on new book sleeves for the Etsy shop but had a question for those of you who purchase book sleeves - what size sleeve to you most commonly buy? I offer 3 sizes: small (7 x 9 in), medium (8 x 10 in) and large (9 x 11 in). Thank you in advance for all your responses!

TheSpineView I like the large ones because it will fit the bigger hardcover books. 1y
Megabooks I have mostly larges but a handful of mediums too. I don‘t buy the smalls. 1y
TheBookHippie I have large and medium equally. Small I have two one for signet one for kindle. 1y

Last year was an abysmal reading year so to make sure 2022 doesn‘t turn out the same I‘m trying to force myself to read (or in this case listen to) 1 book a week. This is book #2 of 2022. The story seems good just don‘t know if I‘ll survive the narrator‘s voice and reading style. 📚🎧🤔

Not exactly a book post but I have a question for all you wonderful Littens. I will be reopening my Etsy shop in the new year, selling padded book sleeves, fabric bookmarks and eventually other bookish related items. When searching for book sleeves or bookmarks, what words would you use in your searches? What are some keywords or tags that you would associate with these items? All your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you! 💕

CBee That‘s exciting! Can‘t wait to check out your shop 😊 Some tags I‘d probably use when searching: bookmark, book sleeve or book pouch, maybe bookish gifts? I‘ve typed in book sleeve before and gotten lots of hits. Good luck 🍀💚 1y

AmyG Let us know when it‘s back up. I have used the searches that the others posted. With bookmarks many times I am looking for specific ones-characters, authors etc and then I type i.e. Stephen King bookmarks. (edited) 1y
Karkar I usually use booksleeve as one word 🤪 book pouch book protection 1y
TheSpineView I like monogrammed stuff so I usually use book sleeve monogrammed or book sleeve pet design. Same with bookmarks and I sometimes search by color or use a seasonal prompt i.e. Halloween themed book sleeve. 1y

With only one child still living at home, this summer we sold our house of 23 years and bought a much smaller condo. What was once 4 bookshelves of my lovely books has been painstakingly whittled down to just one (albeit packed) bookshelf. Now that we‘re settled, I‘m hoping to get back to reading again and back to Litsy! 💕📚

So I wanted to give the #authoramonth another chance with this short story prequel. It definitely required a lot of out of the box thinking from me and while I found it wildly imaginative, I just couldn‘t get into the story. Part of it is this author‘s writing style but it‘s also that, as with my other read from N.K. Jemisin, I just can‘t wrap my brain around the story. I have another novella/short story so giving it one last chance. @Soubhiville
