Velvet Was the Night | Silvia Moreno-Garcia
post image

Reading (Velvet on audio).
I read somewhere that Moreno-Garcia‘s books all have a different vibe. I love that in an author when well done (eg Matt Ruff). I don‘t know what to think yet, & I‘m 75% done w the book. It‘s not…. Velvety, as promised? But I wonder if that‘s because of the narrator? She‘s… not velvety. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Anyone?

Also reading Stroud after having enjoyed his Niceville series🤓

& sent the #LMPBC book to @carlthecattt today! #groupw

ChaoticMissAdventures Velvet is on my list for this month, she is very hit or miss for me. I did really like Mexican Gothic which is pretty polarizing, and Certain Dark Things was certainly dark (I liked it fine) 3d
Avanders @ChaoticMissAdventures I also really liked Mexican Gothic! And I‘m here for Certain Dark Things… and this is good. It‘s just… not quite what I was expecting. Though I‘m not sure what that was 🤔😜 3d
TheSpineView Great job 👍📖 2d

As Halloween ‘21 draws to a close…
I finished my #LMPBC #GroupW book already! Such a quick read… more in the book 🤍🥶💙 Though I‘ll add that it kept me cold while reading it, despite 70-degree temps today!
@carlthecattt @MaleficentBookDragon @mklong

And I‘ve finished the last book in Round 4 of #cbbc #CoffeeBeanBookClub !! 🥲☕️🔪📖🤎

Hades has spoken. 🐈‍⬛
I very scientifically put the three books in a circle on the floor. I then placed treats on the bottom of the books near the center of the circle and called the cats. Hades ate the treat on Winter at Death‘s Hotel first so we will be reading that for #round13 #GroupW of #LMPBC
Are you three okay with that?
PS -does this make me the crazy 🐈‍⬛ lady now? 😹

carlthecattt Can‘t wait! 2mo
shortsarahrose I had a friend who had their cat choose their college in a similar manner 😆 so you could be more crazy! 🐈 2mo

mklong LOL works for me! If it makes you feel less crazy, I‘ll let Sandy 🐕 make the final choice for mine 2mo
Avanders Woot!! 😸😁 I asked Mark to pick mine…. And he surprised me with his pick! @carlthecattt @mklong @MaleficentBookDragon 2mo
hissingpotatoes Absolutely love your cat's name! 😸 ❤️ 2mo
MaleficentBookDragon OKAY, I was skimming the book and I don't think snow/winter plays a big part of the story. So, we can keep it, or go with the second treat Hades ate. @Avanders @mklong @carlthecattt (edited) 2mo
Avanders Hmm 🤔 totes up to you guys 😁 (or Hades, as the case may be 😜😘) 2mo
BethM That is the best selection process ever 😂 2mo
Crazeedi I love this process!! 1mo

Ok I‘ve taken your comments, looked at a few more closely, and rejiggered a bit… here are the 4 I‘m considering now 😁Let me know what you think #GroupW #Round13 #LMPBC

@MaleficentBookDragon @carlthecattt @mklong

carlthecattt The terror sounds really good! 2mo
mklong Again, I would be happy with any of them, but I guess Let the Right One In would be my first choice 2mo
MaleficentBookDragon The terror sounds good, but at 769 pages it is a chunkster. My top choice is Voices in the Snow but Let the Right One in is also good. I've seen the American movie and I feel the book will probably be much better. 2mo

Here are my top 5 choices up for your review in #round13 #LMPBC #GroupW
Let me know what you think. I‘m thrilled to read any of these (maybe all of them this winter).
I threw The Shining in because I‘ve never read it. It scared me as a kid and I only made it through the first few chapters.

Avanders Oooh all look great — I also haven‘t yet read The Shining (though of course I‘ve seen it a bunch of times). My top pick would probably be Winter at Death‘s Hotel.. but again, all look great!! 2mo
carlthecattt 5 Total Strangers or Unwanted Guest would be my 2 choices, but they all sound good! 2mo
mklong They all sound great to me too. I have also never read The Shining and have always wanted to 2mo
MaleficentBookDragon I eliminated 5 Total Strangers and Dark Matter. Which of the three left would you vote for? @mklong @avanders @carlthecattt I want to read all three so if there is a tie I can break it. 2mo

carlthecattt I would love to read An Unwanted Guest. 2mo
Avanders I‘d be super happy with any of those 3, but I still vote for Winter at Death‘s Hotel ☺️ 2mo
mklong LOL, I still vote The Shining! Totally unhelpful I know 😂 2mo
MaleficentBookDragon That's one vote each and I want to read all three! 😂
Okay, if there are no strong objections, I will pick one out of a hat (or have the #manpanion choose one). @carlthecattt @avanders @mklong
2mo
Avanders Great plan! 😁 2mo
mklong Works for me! 2mo
carlthecattt Sounds good to me! 2mo

carlthecattt I almost added The Snowman to my list of choices! Sounds like a great read :) 2mo
mklong LOL, I had Snowman on my potential list too! White is for Witching is on my TBR too though! 2mo
MaleficentBookDragon I saw the movie for The Snowman if that counts.😂 My top choice would be Voices in the Snow, but Let the Right One In and White is for Witching look good too. 2mo
Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon that counts! I would want my pic to be fresh and new for everyone ☺️ @mklong @carlthecattt 2mo

Let‘s try this again- with the correct group this time.

Winter themed mystery/thriller! These are my 4 choices, let me know your thoughts or if you‘ve already read them! Wolf Pack is part of a series so that is something to consider. Can‘t wait to swap!

mklong Looking forward to it! I have been meaning to read Winter Counts, but I‘d be up for any of them. 2mo
MaleficentBookDragon I have The Girl in Cabin 13 on my TBR so I'd love that. You also can't go wrong with Jennifer McMahon. I've already read it, but it was a long time ago. (edited) 2mo
Avanders Yep they all look fun! I‘ve also read The Winter People before.. hadn‘t heard of any of the others. The Girl in Cabin 13 would probably be my top choice, but I‘d be happy with whatever ☺️ 2mo

Since I am such a mood reader, every round I say that I‘m not signing up for the next #LMPBC.
Every time I cannot resist; especially when #GroupW is available. Who‘s interested in a winter set/themed mystery, horror, or thriller for #round13?

I just signed up on the “Litsy Markup Postal Book Club (Round 013)“ page for Group W https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080444aead2ca0ff2-litsy13

bibliobard Right?! Once I put off signing up and had to sit out around and it really bummed me out. So I learned my lesson I am at least going to control myself and only do one group this time though. 2mo
Chrissyreadit I‘m always interested in so many- like yours- and @BethM I love seasonal- but find I struggle to keep up when I sign up for more then one. The pain is real!!! 2mo
BethM @Chrissyreadit same! More than one is too much for me! 2mo
