I know we‘re supposed to be thinking about #GoodIntentions, but my (possibly slightly evil) mind went straight to #CruelIntentions, the 1999 teen movie adaption if Les Liaison Dangereuses
This used to be one of my favorite movies, but I watch it recently, for the first time in like 10 years, and I didn't find it quite as enjoyable. Seemed more melodramatic than I remembered.
#Liaisons is another episode I had to go back and watch again because it didn't ring any bells with me. It was interesting, a nice cultural exchange. However, Picard and Anna's storyline was fairly predictable.
#StarTrekSummerMay #Liaisons @Megabooks
TNG 7.02 #Liaisons, or as I call it, the rapey episode. 3 alien “diplomats“ go on an expedition onto the Enterprise to experience emotions. №1 focusses on Troy and desserts (creepy), №2 focusses on anger and Worf (creepy) and №3 transforms into a female to trap and seduce Picard (CREEPY AND TRIGGERY). And they get away with it because 'they didn't know better'. I hate this episode so much. Titled after tagged, of course.

At last! I‘ve been meaning to read this one for years.
This is high intrigue, deception, envy, jealousy, manipulation, innocence lost, love lost at its best. One of my favorite parts is "Ce n'est pas de ma faute" letter. I still get shivers hearing John Malkovich acting this out in the movie. This is my ultimate epistolary novel. #emojinov ?
The Marquise de Merteuil is an über#bitch in this book. She schemes, manipulates, and enjoys the downfall of the young woman whose virginity she toys with. Still, she is what makes the book worth reading in the first place ?! #Rocktober
I have enjoyed reading a lot of books this year; but these three are my top picks so far... 👍👍👍
I'm very 2000&late to this tag, but here goes...if one of these five films is on tv, I'll stop whatever I'm doing to watch.
✨The Wizard of Oz
✨The Breakfast Club
✨Back to the Future
...but really there are sooo many more! #5movies
#TBRtemptation post 8! #PhillyMeetUp edition! A @valerieandbooks pick! Since this came out in 1782, it's not a recent release 😆👏🏻. It's considered one of the most scandalous and controversial novels in European literature. Vicomte de Valmont and Marquise de Marteuil form an unholy alliance and turn seduction into a game, a game to win at all costs. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎
4 stars from me I really enjoyed this novel of self destruction and destruction of society's values from within.
Yes it is melodramatic and over the top and yes the main characters are unlikeable but that just makes them great villains.
I really enjoyed the epistolary form with no actual narrative other than the letters, I also like the footnotes suggesting
Hello! Coming up for air btwn holidays and MFA applying to say I miss you all and will be posting again soon! (Including our famous #bookishbirthdays) Took a break yesterday to see the revival of this play - fantastic performances by Liev Schreiber and Janet McTeer, and some of the most stunning production design I've seen. 👍🏻❤️, soon, Littens! Hang in there and try to have the best day you can.
Humanity is not perfect in any fashion; no more in the case of evil than in that of good. The criminal has his virtues, just as the honest man has his weaknesses.
HAPPY garage sale finds! I already own several of these but now those vintage or leather bound editions can stay untouched.
I haven't been Litsy-ing as much as I usually do as I've been on a little road trip... and that means new (to me) book shops! Here is my find of the day. I've been wanting to read it for years. #TheFolioSociety
Multiple covers of the day...no doubt. It's got to be the one on the right...
