I think I agree with @Patchshank and @Maggie4483 on this one. It was an engrossing book and you really become attached to the Ciaglia‘s in their journey, but so much of the book relies on the shock value of the serial killers‘ letters that I don‘t know if I could recommend this to someone without copious trigger warnings. It kind of felt like Pete Earley would have just used the letters and dumped everything else if Tony let him. #lmpbc #truecrime
Since I didn‘t finish this title during my month with it I decided to get my own copy and… it. Is. Done. Whoo! That was crazy, but if you are in to true crime and haven‘t read it already, it is consider a classic of the genre for a reason! #lmpbc #groupt #round14
Thanks for the tag, @EadieB !
💚 I really did not want to read “Pride and Prejudice” as a kid and then as an adult I was really hesitant to reread it. I am going to classify it as a romance for the sake of the post because that is what I thought it was before I did my reread of it in college.
💚 I found fantasy during my formative years and it was the perfect escape from what I saw as a boring life.
Volumes 1 and 2 cover season 1 of the anime from the 90s. I remember watching that on tv while I tried to put my hair in Usagi‘s buns. The manga is a bit darker, but you don‘t get to spend as much time with the other Sailor Guardians. It is still super fun to finally be reading this! #bookjournal #manga
If you have sent me some #litsylove recently, I put a postcard with random bits of information about me on it. I was inspired by @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks email. I thought it might be helpful for a reminder of just who you are sending letters to. If it is silly feel free to do what you want with it, but I hope you at least enjoy the lovely post card art!
@Kdgordon88 @rsteve388 I sent off my #litsylovesummerswap today! I forgot to take a related picture, so here are the most photogenic members of my family, Hera and Artemis! @Bookwormjillk may want to keep an eye out on either Tuesday or Wednesday for a package! Thanks for setting this up, guys! #catsoflitsy #dogsoflitsy
I would like to formally apologize if you heard my disheartened cry when I found out that this is the finale for my current favorite series. The poor people at my local Barnes and Noble must have irreparable damage to their ears. (Just kidding, but I am sad that this is goodbye to these characters. I can‘t wait to see Fujita‘s next project!!!) #manga #bookjournal
I have been reading this for two months and while I enjoyed the first two in this series, l am going to tap out. I like the relationships developed in the prior novels, but everything in this one is very big and very anticlimactic. I read a summary and I guess this isn‘t my thing even though I really wanted it to be. #bookjournal (How do you guys deal with DNF shame? Because I am feeling it right now.)
Busy day at work, so I am glad today‘s page was easy! #mentalhealth
#mentalhealth So much of my anxiety comes from interacting with strangers. Covid really increased that anxiety and I am still trying to figure out how to cope with that.
I have a tendency to only want to rely on myself and I feel ashamed to ask for help. Today‘s entry reminded me how much happiness other members of my life bring me and that cutting them out is not helpful. Also, I really like the Marcus Aurelius quotes #mentalhealth
I thought I would give this journal a shot. Everybody has stress and drama in their life, but I am realizing mine has stalled me to the point of despondency. So I am trying to “land on the other side of despair” by looking closely at myself and hopefully moving forward. I hope no one minds if I share some of the less personal pages, but I hope that posting them encourages me to keep going! #mentalhealth
A crazy crime with an equally interesting cast of characters! Puit is our unreliable narrator on the life and crimes of Brooke‘s Lee West. The unfortunate passenger next to me on the way to Denver, CO caught a glimpse of some of the crime scene photos! I don‘t think they were as interested as I was. #lmpbc #groupt I will send this book off on Tuesday! @Patchshank
The version of this graphic novel I read had volumes 1, 2, and 3 in it. If you enjoyed the tv series, then this is the one I suggest. It is beautifully done. Each personality gets its own penciller that has a very distinct style. The story includes Spector‘s origin. Some questions weren‘t answered, but still fun! #bookjournal #graphicnovel #comics
I love the tv series and decided to pick up a graphic novel for more. Bendis has always done a good job of filling you in to the Marvel world at large, so you don‘t feel confused while reading. It might not be the best place to jump in, but between Spector, Lime, and Lopez it is very fun to read. #bookjournal #graphicnovel #comics
This is Dez (my cat-nephew). He wanted me to tell @Mynameisacolour that Helter Skelter arrived! @Patchshank I won‘t be able to resend your book until Saturday because my work schedule is silly (and there is no post office in the town I work in), but I promise to get it there asap. I appreciate your patience with everything! #lmpbc #groupt
I really, really enjoyed this book. V. E. Schwab is moving quickly up my ranks of favorite authors! #bookjournal
I know that I am incredibly behind on this, but would it be cool if I joined #roll100 ?
I finally got up this morning and sent out my #LMPBC packages and got some #litsylove in the mail. @Pogue and @Patchshank I sent you both emails with tracking info! I am trying to be one top of it, but for now I am going to go back to cuddling my dog! #dogsoflitsy
So much of this book made me feel such strong emotions that I think the impact of reading this story will be positive in the future once I get past the anger that was built up in me from page one. Allende has a power to make the reader feel absolute joy one page and then bottomless sorrow the next. My annotations hopefully illustrate my feelings without getting too preachy! #LMPBC #groupr #magicalrealism #bookjournal
I am incredibly fortunate. I have lived 33 years and had so many opportunities and experiences. My family is generous and supportive. My friends are kind and patient. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone on this platform who has liked, commented, emailed, or wrote me. I appreciate the birthday wishes. You are all lovely people. #litsylove #books
“It was a world in which time was not marked by calendars or watches and objects had a life of their own, in which apparitions sat at the table and conversed with human beings, the past and the future formed part of a single unit, and the reality of the present was a kaleidoscope of jumbled mirrors where everything and anything could happen.” #lmpbc #groupr #magcialrealism
