Cinfhen It‘s currently 5:31 pm and I haven‘t read a single word yet today. I hope to get some reading time in later tonight. Glad to see so many positive reviews @Sweettartlaura @Ms.Story @JanuarieTimewalker13 and I agree, this cover from #BookDepository is awesome @DGRachel @4thhouseontheleft @Rachel_nyc ❤️ (edited) 1mo
Centique I love this book. Fingers crossed you love it too. I think there‘s a good chance you will! 💕👍 Apart from the one fantastical element, everything else is very realistic. 1mo
Cinfhen I read the first 100 pages @Centique it‘s REALLY brutal / I‘m not really “enjoying” but I need to continue on for bookclub. 1mo
Centique @Cinfhen yes it‘s certainly brutal 😳😳💕 1mo

TrishB I‘m really unsure what you‘ll think of this....it is YA. I loved it, though found it 💔 3mo
Cinfhen I‘ve heard such good things @TrishB @Kalalalatja @GripLitGrl @Cathythoughts do you think I should watch the movie first?? 3mo
TrishB It‘s a no from me.....😱 but I will always say that.... 3mo
Kalalalatja I haven‘t seen the movie, yet, so I‘ll go with no, too! 3mo
Cinfhen I knew you‘d say that @TrishB 😂😂 but I wasn‘t sure of your answer @Kalalalatja 3mo
TrishB @Kalalalatja it‘s quite a good adaptation, it just misses a bit of the depth of the film. I do like both though which is unusual for me! 3mo
GripLitGrl I've only seen the movie but I always try to go with the book first. 3mo
CarolynM I read the book first and liked it a lot. Very unusually for me, I liked the film even better. 3mo

Up next is my #NonFiction2019 #SomethingPersonal & #Pop19 #ReadABookDuringTheSeasonItsSetIn This is about the Bkack Saturday fires on 7thFeb 2009,which were deliberately lit.Australian bushfire storms are living breathing things,they sound like a freight train coming at full speed,they block out the sun & turn the world orange & black.They even generate their own weather called a pyrocumulus cloud that rains liquid soot & fire bullets. Terrifying.

Samplergal Just downloaded this one. Sounds so interesting. Thanks! #somuchfornotbuyingbooks 3mo
Cinfhen Those photos are INTENSE 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥Book sounds super fascinating 3mo
gradcat I, too, think the photos here are really dramatic. I added this book, and I want to suggest one to you that has a similar subject matter. Just a tip! 3mo

Lizpixie @Samplergal #somanybookssolittlefunds💸 @Cinfhen Book so far is brilliant. I‘ve also read one called Kinglake350 by Adrian Hyland, also about Black Saturday & also brilliant. I was caught in a bushfire when I was 15, it was terrifying & I‘ll never forget it. Some years the Blue Mountains are ablaze so intensely that we get embers & ash here, 47kms away from the fire. Some summers are just full of dread, waiting for that orange glow in the sky🔥 3mo
Lizpixie @gradcat thanks for the tip! It‘s already in my litsyTBR👍 Those are actual photos from the fires in the book, Australia in high summer is a dangerous place. 3mo
Cinfhen This book isn‘t available yet in USA kindle 😫😫im gonna check with #BookDepository 3mo
Cinfhen I did see the other two available on Kindle 😄 (edited) 3mo
Cinfhen I can‘t imagine ever being caught in a bushfire - how terrifying that must have been 3mo
Freespirit I need to read this 3mo
Lizpixie @Cinfhen I think book depository has it, if not I can send you a copy if you‘d like. It was terrifying being caught by one, my boyfriend at the time & I were fishing in the Hawkesbury river at a remote spot that was down a long dirt track in bushland. We woke to the smell of smoke, piled it all in the car & started driving out but within a minute we had trees on fire both sides of the car & leaf litter on the track itself in flames. 3mo
Lizpixie I remember soaking shirts with our water bottles & stuffing them around the windows(old car with not so great rubber seals!) We had to crawl down the road, what took us 5 mins the day before, took us an hour to travel. We finally got through but the car had scorch marks all over it & the rubber parts had warped & melted from the heat. Scariest car ride I‘ve ever had.😱 @Cinfhen 3mo
Cinfhen That‘s something you never forget and I‘m sure you walk away knowing your life was sparred. I‘ll check out Book Depository - thanks!! Shipping to & from Australia is expensive especially to Israel. It‘s not worth the cost but thanks for the offer 😘 (edited) 3mo
gradcat Your story of being caught in a bushfire sounds utterly heart-stopping...so glad you & your boyfriend made it out okay! 3mo
Lizpixie @Cinfhen no worries Cindy, I‘m happy to do it if you change your mind. I‘m halfway through and it‘s utterly compelling. @gradcat thank you, it‘s given me a total dread of bushfires since, the fact that it was one way out(a tiny dirt track just out of Wisemans Ferry NSW))made it more terrifying. We seriously thought about abandoning the car and jumping in the river at one point! 3mo
gradcat 😱 So frightening. 3mo

Hosting weekend guests...snuck away for a few minutes ( needed me time aka quiet time) and what do I do...buy 2 books on #BookDepository because I felt like I earned a treat having to be all social 😂😂 small price to pay #SorryNotSorry #ThatsHowIPlay xx Now back to my guests 😜 price in US $ is around $17 ( I think that‘s reasonable for my pain & suffering)

irre Very reasonable 😀 3mo
Kalalalatja Oh, I really hope you like Wallflower 🤞 have fun with your guests! 3mo
KarenUK Gotta get that down time squeezed in! And I love ‘the perks.....‘ 💕 3mo

Crazeedi You deserve it! 3mo
LeahBergen 😆😆 I always treat myself this way, too. Damn it, we DESERVE it. 3mo
Hollie You should absolutely treat yourself after having to be social! 3mo
CarolynM I liked Wallflower a lot, but it was one of the rare times I liked the movie even more. 3mo
Cinfhen I haven‘t seen the film or read the book but I always meant too @CarolynM and it was 20% off, which I took as a sign 😉 @Hollie @LeahBergen @Crazeedi @KarenUK @Kalalalatja @irre I knew my Litsy people would understand 😘😘😘 3mo
TrishB Wallflower is one of my favs, I didn‘t like the film more but I did like it. My daughter and I read on holiday a couple of years ago and cried our eyes out. I hope the YA doesn‘t put you off. 3mo
Centique I so feel you about guests and needing me time - books are the cure for sure! 😍😍 3mo
Centique @CarolynM I love that movie! Now have to read the book... 3mo

BookDepository is celebrating their 20million milestone with a wishlist competition. You could win 5 books and all you have to do is add them to your wishlist. Thought I'd share, though I should avoid getting more competition 😝

Soubhiville Sweet! 3mo

The Girl in the Ice | Robert Bryndza

#WinterWonderland Found this title yesterday while going through the #BookBargain section of #BookDepository
This title caught my eye; a woman is found #Frozen in a sheet of ice in a London park. Her hands are bound, similarly 3 prostitutes have all been discovered in the same manner, strangled, bound & #frozen.

Cinfhen And I ❤️this Madonna song 🎵 6mo
RadicalReader @Cinfhen gorgeous looking cover they really did well with the ice effect looks totally chilling 6mo
TrishB Did you buy? Only think of you with Madonna! 6mo
