"He drove down Silver Street, listening to Gillian Welch's Hell Among the Yearlings album. His taste in music was getting more depressive by the minute, if that was possible."
I love book synchronicity! I "discovered" this album while at work today. Really enjoyed what I heard. #belowzer00s

BarbaraBB That is so cool. I loved this part of the book too, so recognizable ☺️ 2w

Suet624 Oh no. Elliott Smith. I get so damn sad every time I am reminded of him. I listened to him non-stop. When he died I couldn‘t listen anymore. I miss him. 2w

Witches Abroad | Terry Pratchett, Terence David John Pratchett

When you‘re reading your way through the Histories of Middle Earth with the #YearOfTolkien #LOTRHistory group and your other read for #PratchettPosse #OokBOokClub throws in a gollum reference.

Small book world! #BookSynchronicity

And honestly, the witches are smart.😉😂

Daisey This is a great reference! They seem to be everywhere lately. I even stumbled across one in my current YA read today. (edited) 5mo
jillrhudy Adore, adore, adore 🥰🥰🥰 5mo
JazzFeathers Fantastic! I need to read more Pratchett. I'm intrigued by the Night Watch series. I read the first book and l liked it (even in ltalian, though l think Pratchett needs to be read in the original form). But l hear the Witches are particularly outstanding. 5mo

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers I started with an offshoot of the witches.... Tiffany Aching, which is a YA Pratchett and feel in love there, so the witches have always been my favorite. 5mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey I think because we are steeped in Tolkien at the moment, we are noticing them even more often. 5mo
Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa You may have a point there. I do think I‘ve become more attuned with more reading, but I also think I‘ve been lucky in a good selection of books currently. Another one today in 5mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey That one‘s on my list to read yet too, I was hoping to read it with the group, but at the rate I‘m going it won‘t happen until next year. Oh well, so many books, not enough time!🤷‍♀️ 5mo

I put this book down for over a month while I re-read Harry Potter for its anniversary this year. What a bizarre coincidence to finish Voldemort's quest to eradicate Muggles & Mud-Bloods while White Supremacists marched on the current news, and then to pick this book back up today and find the place I left off all those weeks ago right at the start of Nazi genetics/eugenics. If that's not a #BookCoincidence #BookSynchronicity I don't know what is.

Laalaleighh Reading this excerpt made my chest hurt. 2y
Laalaleighh Also Voldemort is totally based on Hitler but grindlewald is Hitler. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Laalaleighh Me too! I'm thinking that poor baby's name should be remember and well known. 😢 2y

Things I realize: that I am not a teen
Things I also realize: there are better written dystopias that are for teens
Therefore: while premise is promising, characters aren't dragging me to book two.

Good news is that I finished my second book of #litsypartyofone

BarbaraTheBibliophage Less than a minute after I saw your post, this book showed up in the show we're binging. #booksynchronicity 3y
rachelm @BarbaraTheBibliophage no way!! What show? 3y

Some beautiful, touching, and moving stuff in this poetry collection, full of history and life stories. But this poem hit me at the right time and the right day today. Sometime synchronicity or #booksynchronicity is right on the money and you couldn't plan it better if you had tried.
