📚I‘ll Be Gone In The Dark:Michelle McNamara-Reminds me of how the perpetrator would call his victims, sometimes years later. Sick bastard.

1. A Dance Of Dragons - Jon Snow being stabbed just blew my mind!
2. The Usual Suspects - That ending with Kevin Spacey. The man may be a dick, but he‘s a great actor. The first movie that made me speechless.
3. Gimme Head by The Radiators. - blew my tiny teenage mind in the early 80s, such a shocking little song! Any other Aussie remember it!

4. I rarely think books turned into TV shows or movies are that successful. Game of Thrones being the exception. That said, I do enjoy seeing true stories come to life.
5. Haven‘t found one yet. I do want to find a romance novel, but I‘m afraid to commit.

Hey everyone,

Quick question! Just wondering what “movie based on a book” that everyone suggests? I currently have a week off, and the weather is not nearly as nice as I hoped, so I thought I‘d catch up with some reading and movies. I just realized I still haven‘t seen Everything, Everything and it made me wonder what else I‘ve missed or forgotten about. Send send me your suggestions!

Calling all littens:

I need your help. I‘m looking for books that deal with rape in a sensitive way as well as the consequences. If the books touches on pursuing legal action or healing, you get bonus points.

Thanks.

akckitty Some good ones. I can't remember which one's dealt with also going to court though. But all great reads that deals with it with sensitivity. 2mo
akckitty Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, I Have the Right To by Cheesy Prout, Wrecked by Maria Padian, Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu, The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith.. 2mo
akckitty What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler, All the Rage by Courtney Summers.. hope some of these help what you're looking for! 2mo
See All 10 Comments
esurient Child victim of parental incest, follows through public disclosure, arrest, decision to accept a plea arrangement and why, post-trama therapy, and stable and contented adulthood. 2mo
esurient Memoir, college-age victim, a lot of detail in trying to make arrest, build court case, follow through court case, come to her own equilibrium. Writing is more 'articulated rage' than 'sensitive'. 1999 publication, describes 1981 event. 2mo
esurient I second @akckitty 's recommendation. Only court is public opinion, great narration from the teen's own point of view. There's also a film adaptation. 2mo
Beachesnbooks Powerful essay collection dealing with rape culture edited by Roxane Gay. Highly recommend 2mo
Scochrane26 Invisible girls (more about sexual abuse), the sound of silence (different real life stories from women & at least one man who has realized he date-raped a girl), lucky (author of lovely bones)). Laurie Halse Anderson has a new memoir about her experience & also wrote Speak. (edited) 2mo
BooksAndTea97 It's a YA book but I think it is really good. It deals with rape and also with other stuff such as mental health and sexual orientation.(It's told from three different teen perspectives) I think it is greatly underapreaciated and that there should be a bit more hype around it. 2mo

Sooo I have a random question that is #Litsy related. If I review a book as “bail” does it still count as having been read? I need to know before I post a review for the awful book I‘ll be finishing tonight lol. I am not technically “bailing” on it because I am finishing all 400 pages, but wouldn‘t want to give it more credit than it‘s due 🤷‍♀️🤣

AlaMich You can give it a “pan” if you finished it and thought it was bad. 2mo
tpixie Yes, I'd 'Pan" it. Bail typicaly means you didn't finish it. 2mo
TheLibrarian I‘d go with @AlaMich and do “pan” 2mo

Lizpixie @Rissreads it was big in the 70s when it was safe to wander the streets! You need a few kids, break into two groups. First group leaves with a heap of chalk, every intersection you have to put a compass with arrows pointing to each possible way you went. 15mins later the 2nd group leaves & have to catch you before you make it home. With the 1st group able to lay false trails with bogus arrows etc you can make the chase as quick or as long as 3mo

Kaye #1 Nothing wrong with that. As you guys get older, your eyes get worse , so even with glasses , it‘s hard to see the print in books. Ever take a look at the Large Print selection in your library ? If you don‘t like Harlequins , Cozy mysteries , or James Patterson, you‘re out of luck. Get a Kindle and crank up the print size. Then you can read anything. 😁 4mo
Nessavamusic @kaye Yes! My eye site is getting worse but it‘s more just easier to hold and transport. I love having all my books all the time. 4mo

Kaye Ok , that‘s okey dokey by me. I wouldn‘t start a war with anyone over a book. Some people like one, some hate it. Just like we all have favorite colors and foods...books are no different.

Hi, @Cinfhen , @4thhouseontheleft , and @BarbaraTheBibliophage !

I'm looking for a 2019 book challenge and am intrigued by your #Booked2019. Is it intended to be fully filled in for each season or just a certain number per season? How does it work? 📚❤😀

BarbaraTheBibliophage Hi Karisa - we organize the prompts by season and some participants will read all of them during the specified seasons. But many of us mix it up and read based on what suits us. Not everyone reads books for all of the prompts, just like every challenge. We like to think we‘re the easy going challenge. More info here too: Details can be found in the sign-up link here: https://goo.gl/forms/5jbH9jk5TaNPTvKt2 (also it‘s @Cinfhen who‘s a cohost) 🥰 5mo

#IN2019 Number 1 is I‘m hoping to read a lot more non-fiction this year. I‘m not getting any younger & a combo of my illness & meds causes a lot of “brain fog” which makes it hard to think let alone read sometimes. It feels like my IQ is dripping out my ears a point at a time, so it‘s crosswords, puzzles & stuffing as many new facts into my brain as I can to bandage up the IQ bleed! #useitorloseit #knowledgeispower #feedyourbrain

RealLifeReading Here‘s wishing you a happy and healthy 2019! 5mo
Lynnsoprano When I retired, my GP told me I was not allowed to let my brain turn to mush. Nonfiction has been my answer, too. 5mo

I‘ve been put in charge of adult and teen programming at my library. I‘m thinking of doing a reading challenge for each group as a passive program. Question 1: what types of items would be good to include on either an adult or teen challenge list? Question 2: I‘m considering doing a raffle for each group for those that finish the challenge. What sort of prize would be cool for each group?

Tamra #1 Author of color #2 Gift card 5mo
Tamra #2 is hard since I don‘t have teens yet! 5mo
Aloisi_tribe @Tamra thanks for answering! An author of color would be a good one. 5mo
Reecaspieces You could do a classic, an audible book, an author from another country, a book from translation. Then you could do books from different time periods. Or books set in different countries. As for gifts, bookish socks, bookish scarf, candle, hot chocolate and a mug, coffee mug, extra length on a return. Or a free pass if a book is overdue. Or they could be first in line for a new book out that has a long hold. 5mo

Oh yeah. I‘d say at least 80% of my library are books over 400pgs long, with quite a few over 1,000pgs! I feel cheated if I pay the same amount for a book with under 300pgs that I do for a 500pg one. #ilikebigbooksandicannotlie #sizequeen #ifitsnotadoorstopitsnotabook
