#Movember #day2 #Music Music is almost as important to me as reading. My taste in music is just as eclectic as my reading, I love classical right through to heavy metal. I grew up first listening to 70s heavy rock from my brothers, Led Zep, Pink Floyd, then 80s pop, Madonna, Prince, 90s grunge, Nirvana, RHCP then the 00s, Foo Fighters, Ryan Adams. My heart belongs to Jeff Buckley, but lately I find myself back to the 70s a lot, Bowie & the Stones

Cinfhen You are my GreenEyed Pixie Rock 🌟 🙌🏻 3y

Cinfhen Thompson Twins 👯 and Hold Me Now brings me right back to a very specific moment in 1983 - #TeenDrama 3y
gradcat Such a cool collage! I love it!! ♥️ 3y
Lizpixie @gradcat thank you!😘 @Cinfhen I know what you mean, I feel the same about Simply Red-If You Don‘t Know Me By Now #SadSongsAndBrokenHearts 3y
Cinfhen Great hashtag 💗🙌🏻and great song 3y
vivastory Great post! I also have eclectic tastes in music. Although I tend to gravitate towards contemporary alt rock I love classical (wrote a paper in school about Tchaikovsky, who I found fascinating), jazz, early blues, 70s rock (T-Rex, David Bowie) etc 3y

📚I joined Litsy 3rd June 2016
📚I saw a post on Facebook from a reading group I follow that talked about an “Instagram for books” I was sold!
📚Soooo much more! My TBR alone is desk stacks, three floor stacks, four table stacks, a large box under my dining table & a TBR cart!
📚Crime/Mystery/Thriller, SFF & horror

I guess you can call #MOvember my swan song. At the end of December I‘ll be bowing out from cohosting the monthly musical book challenges. I‘ve LOVED collaborating with SO MANY AWESOME Littens. It‘s been a great experience but truthfully I‘m in need of a break. So please “Cherish” the marvelous “Music״ of Madonna with me starting November 1 🥰


Cinfhen @EadieB hoping you‘ll join me for #MOvember🖤 (edited) 3y
TrishB Awww - end of an awesome era. I‘ll miss it 😘♥️ 3y

Librarybelle Thank you for this fun challenge! It‘s been fun following the music and working my brain on book tie-ins. 😘 3y
LeahBergen It‘s been a grand long run! ❤️💕❤️💕 3y
Kalalalatja Even though I have fallen of the wagon of regular posting, I‘m going to miss seeing the daily musical posts. I‘ll definitely try to up my game in November, so we can give you a proper send off into “retirement” 😉💕 3y
Billypar The end of an era! It's been a great run- such a fun challenge: I've been a little disconnected the past couple months but will definitely join in for MOvember! 😀 3y
BarbaraBB Oh Cindy.. That‘s so sad. I am going to miss it so much! But I completely understand. Thinking each day of something new. But as long as you stay active on Litsy I‘ll be fine 🤞❤️❤️ 3y
Cinfhen Thanks so much my wonderful collaborators, friends and cohosts!!! It has BEEN a BLAST @BarbaraBB @Billypar @Kalalalatja @LeahBergen @Librarybelle @TheEllieMo @squirrelbrain @batsy I‘ve LOVED every minute of seeing your posts and playlists xxxxxxx 3y
Centique Thank you so much for making it so fun! I applaud you for knowing when to quit though 👏👏- it was a big time commitment I am sure. There must be other ways to have more daily interactions - we‘ll put our thinking hats on! Like I wish there was a function on Litsy where we‘d get notified when our friends are chatting about a post so we could all join in. 3y
CarolynM Thanks for all your hard work, Cindy. 😘💕 I'll miss the playlists and seeing everyone's posts, especially when the prompts have me stumped like this month's have! 3y
Cinfhen That would be SOOOOOO AWESOME @Centique but you‘re right/ we will find a way to stay “chatty” with our buds💋It has always been fun @CarolynM and im sure I‘ll miss the daily banter but it was starting to feel a little overwhelming so im easing back just a bit. I‘m still FULLY committed to #Booked2020 with my fabulous cohosts @BarbaraTheBibliophage and @4thhouseontheleft 💞💖💞 3y
alisiakae I have been very impressed at how many months you have been doing these! You‘ve earned a break! 3y
Cinfhen First musical challenge post was on April 2017 @4thhouseontheleft and haven‘t missed a month since then 🎶♥️ 3y
KarenUK You have been the most lovely #Hostesswiththemostest !!! 💕💕💕 And very excited to hear there will be a #Booked2020 😊👍 3y
Cinfhen @KarenUK 😘😘 3y
erzascarletbookgasm Aww, I‘m going to miss you hosting these fun photo challenges. What happy times we all have, cracking our brains each day for the prompts, seeing everyone‘s posts, adding more books to our tbr! I‘m sorry I took a break these past two months, thank you for all your hard work, comments and being an awesome host! ❤️ 💋 3y
Cinfhen Thanks so much, Jessie!!!! You‘ve been with me from day one @erzascarletbookgasm I‘m gonna miss all the daily comments 3y

Cinfhen Yay @JennyM I‘ve been missing YOU!!!!!! Looking forward to #MOvember 🎵🖤❣️ 3y

Cinfhen I‘d love to join you in March @Lizpixie I‘ll probably be in deep withdrawal 🖤#hashtagQueen #MySistaFromAnotherMista 3y
Reviewsbylola Ahhhhh Cindy!!!! I don‘t blame you, it‘s a LOT of work! Think how much more reading you‘ll get done now. 🤣🤣 3y
Cinfhen It‘s been a fun ride @Reviewsbylola but you gotta know when it‘s time to call it quits 😉 (edited) 3y
rubyslippersreads Like @Kalalalatja and @JennyM I‘ve fallen off the regular posting wagon, but I‘ll definitely try to join in for your “swan song.” 😘 3y
Cinfhen I‘m looking forward to your return @rubyslippersreads 😍 3y
arlenefinnigan It's been great fun, look forward to your final challenge x 3y

Cinfhen I‘m thinking you might be interested @Lizpixie 4y
MinDea Me me me! I want to join! This sounds awesome! 4y
TrishB I was about to start typing and then saw 350 pages .....will go away and check 😁 sounds like great fun. 4y

CarolynM I'm in! 4y
batsy Fun!! I'm so in! Off to do some research 🤓 4y
Cinfhen Excellent, I‘m putting together the guest list @MinDea @TrishB @CarolynM @batsy ❤️ 4y
Cathythoughts I‘m in 👍🏻❤️ 4y
BookwormAHN I'm in 🖤 4y
MrsV Can I join? 4y
Cinfhen Yay!!! Our first suggestion @BookwormAHN 💕and glad to have some new party guests @MrsV and my old time friend @Cathythoughts 4y
mabell I'm a total weenie, so I may have to just spectate this one! (While peeking through my fingers) 😳 4y
CoffeeAndABook Count me in!!! I‘m such a scaredy-cat, I‘m not sure I can contribute book suggestions but I promise I‘ll read along with you guys by my side 😬😬😬 👻👻👻 And the 80s!!! I was there full on!! While the 70s were childishly cute for me, the 80s were in my bones, as painful as it gets music-, fashion- & especially hair-wise!!! This is going to be so much fun 🎀 4y
Cinfhen Hahahahaha, me too @mabell so I‘m hoping we can agree on something scary BUT not blood curling! I think @erzascarletbookgasm book choice is meant to be horror-lite😗so that might be a good option for us weenies 😜 4y
erzascarletbookgasm @mabell @CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen I‘m a scaredy-cat too, that‘s why I suggested a ‘mild‘ one! 😄 Depending on the choice of book, I may have to sit this out till the next party. 4y
Cathythoughts Is Frankenstein long ? Would that be an option. ? Maybe @TrishB a short book ? ( novella) by SK ?? 4y
Lizpixie I got you @Cinfhen 4y
Cinfhen I knew I could count on my #greeneyedpixie @Lizpixie 💚 4y
batsy @mabell Me too! I'm hoping whatever we read is not too gory 😆 4y
batsy Love the idea of a good haunted house horror so I'm suggesting this one published in 1988 :) 4y
batsy Also tagging @Reggie and @rohit-sawant because I think #HELLoWEEN screams their name 😁 4y
Reggie @TrishB did they make good horror back then that was anything less than 500 pgs.? Lol I wanted to suggest Stinger by Robert McCammon but it sits at 542 pgs. I‘m totally up for this though, @batsy. 4y
Librarybelle @erzascarletbookgasm @mabell @CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen @batsy Consider me a squeamish one as well! I stay away from a lot of horror, so depending upon the book choice, I may have to bow out of this one. 👻 Sorry - can‘t offer any suggestions - I‘m a tad more in tune with gothic horror (Poe)! 4y
thereadingowlvina Oh count me in please! 😁 4y
Pamwurtzler Count me in!! 4y
SledgeReader I‘m with the squeamish team. But don‘t let me hold the group back! 👻 4y
Velvetsun Ooh I want to be included. 4y
Reviewsbylola Fun!! I don‘t have any suggestions so I‘m excited to see what gets chosen! 4y
Mdargusch I have to join in for the 80‘s theme but I‘m not a big horror fan. This will be a fun way to get into a new genre 4y
Bookzombie Count me in! I will have to look for some suggestions. 👻🎃💀 4y
GripLitGrl 🙌🙌count me in such fun! The only one I can think of that's not too long 4y
RealLifeReading I don‘t read much horror but I do make an exception for Halloween 🎃 4y
RealLifeReading I just found this Japanese horror novel - written in the 80s but only translated into English in 2017. Nothing scares me more than Japanese horror! 4y
RealLifeReading Night Things sounds good @batsy 4y
batsy @RealLifeReading I have that on my TBR and didn't realise it was written in the 80s! Nice. True, I expect Japanese horror to be terrifying (which is why I've been putting it off 😅) 4y
peaknit I was looking around and remember Different Seasons by Stephen King, my own 80‘s obsession😂 it has four novellas, 3 whichbecame movies, we all know Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me, then Apt Pupil was also a movie. Leaving Breathing Method, but it‘s only 60+ pages, maybe The Body (Stand by Me) and Breathing Method? I loved that whole book, wore the pages out in 7th grade! That said, Night Things also sounds interesting. Excited! (edited) 4y
Cinfhen Thanks for the suggestions @RealLifeReading @peaknit @GripLitGrl @batsy I‘ll compile a list and then put it to vote! So glad you‘re all back in @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola @Pamwurtzler @Librarybelle @SledgeReader @Bookzombie It looks like most of us prefer horror-lite 😜 4y
Reviewsbylola I actually prefer as gory as possible but I see that I‘m in the minority. 🤣🤣 4y
bookandbedandtea I'm team squeamish but when you guys finalize your choice I'll see if I think I can handle it. 👾 4y
DebinHawaii Late to the party as usual. I saw this last night but sleep beckoned harder. 😉I'm in, but struggling with a book recommendation that's under 350 pages & from the 80s, readily available now, that isn't a total gore-fest. There's this one which is first in a series and I haven't read although it gets good reviews on Amazon. And it put I Wear My Sunglasses at Night in my head. 😎👂🏻🐛 Oh-it was first published in 1989 too so right on the cusp. (edited) 4y
TrishB @Reggie I haven‘t found any yet! 4y
TrishB I‘m not squeamish !! Will give most things a go! 4y
Cinfhen Love you @DebinHawaii and love that song by Corey Hart but I don‘t think I can handle a vampire book 🤪 4y
mabell I agree with @Librarybelle - gothic horror may be more my speed! I'm looking forward to seeing what is chosen and whether I think I can handle it 😬 I can't wait for the 80s posts! 😎 4y
DebinHawaii @Cinfhen It's OK. I love you too. 😍😆That's all I got at the moment that hasn't been mentioned. 80s horror was a lot about the page count. I'll try to look for something else later if I get a minute. 4y
DebinHawaii I probably lean to #TeamGore with @Reviewsbylola and @TrishB 😱😆 4y
TrishB Not read that one! Looks good 👍🏻 4y
DebinHawaii Works for me! 👍 4y
LeahBergen Count me in! 4y
LeahBergen The Elementals sounds great (I may have read it back in the day 🤔). I love a good haunted house story. 👻 4y
Bookzombie I second @RealLifeReading on Graveyard Apartment! Also, Night Things @batsy posted. 4y
Bookzombie I lean toward #teamgore. 😁 4y
Cinfhen Woohoo 🎉🙌🏻💜 @LeahBergen NOW the party‘s getting started !!!!!! 4y
Cinfhen I‘m gonna whittle down the list a bit and put it up for vote tomorrow @Bookzombie 👻 4y
GripLitGrl Nice suggestions so far looking forward to seeing what we end up with👻🎑🙌 4y
Bookzombie @Cinfhen That‘s great! Thank you for putting this together again! 4y
BluestockingDuchess This will be fun! 4y
peaknit #nerdalert I just entered this buddy read into my calendar! 4y
Bklover Oh this sounds like fun! I missed the discussion but read all about it (I‘m vacationing with my oldest daughter). This next one should be great! Can‘t wait! 4y
bookandbedandtea @Cinfhen @DebinHawaii @TrishB @Reggie @Reviewsbylola @mabell I went to look up The Elementals and I accidentally one-clicked it! 😯 So if that's the one that gets picked I'll try to participate despite being #TeamSqueamish ! 4y
TrishB @bookandbedandtea accidentally one-clicked - love it 💕😁 4y
Cinfhen Oh Man @bookandbedandtea I‘ve done that before🤪it‘s gonna get my vote so 🤞🏼🤞🏼that the others vote for it too!!! I bet if you contact Amazon, they will credit you. 4y
vivastory I'm definitely down for a horror read! I see The Elementals has gotten a lot of mentions. That's been on my TBR for awhile now! 4y
Reggie I kinda wanna 3rd @RealLifeReading. When I looked up best 80‘s horror fiction that book was in the top ten. 4y
ElishaLovesBooks Oh boy! I‘m the biggest scaredy-cat. I once started reading a Dean Koontz while I was babysitting in the 90‘s and have been traumatized ever since! 😱😳 I may be open to it if it‘s not too scary! #imabigbaby 4y
bookandbedandtea @TrishB @Cinfhen I was on a business call and didn't realize it at first, then was pretty annoyed at myself! But I decided to keep it. Maybe, if it's the one, reading it with a group will make it easier. 4y
bookandbedandtea @ElishaLovesBooks Same! I read something when I was a teen (blocked the name due to trauma I guess! Or maybe because it was so long ago! 🤔) then couldn't sleep for days. #scaredycatsunite 4y
asiriusreader Awesome, I‘m in!! 4y
ValerieAndBooks Maybe something by V.C. Andrews? I remember her being popular during the 1980s! 4y

#HeyJune in my world there is only one #LadyMadonna #onceAnEightiesGirlAlwaysAnEightiesGirl #spandexandneonforever 🤘🏼💕😄🎧

LibrarianRyan The original material girl!! Always makes me think muddin' trucks, sandy beaches, and hot military guys in short shorts (ala Top Gun). 4y
Cinfhen We were just saying TopGun would be an awesome BDWY musical @LibrarianRyan (edited) 4y
LibrarianRyan @Cinfhen your right that could be amazing. But first we shall see the sequel. Too bad 1. Val Kilmer can no longer fill out those short shorts, 2. Military went to sport shorts. I think we still have an old pair of dads somewhere. 4y
