This book will be staying with me. A perfect story of The Troubles,it weaves together the past & present of NI, the stories of perpetrators & victims and why peace is such a delicate thing. It ends in frustration, not one person has paid for Jean McConvilles murder & no-one ever will. Her children were the only innocent ones in the entire story, it‘s them I feel for the most. Tragic. #NonFiction2020 #AboutSocialJustice #LitsyAtoZ2020 #LetterK 👇👇

Lizpixie And if anyone believes that Gerry Adams was not a member of the IRA, I have a nice piece of “slightly wet” land to sell them!😉 19h

This is the first book I've read by Salvatore. I almost bailed, things didnt get going until page 125, which seems very late for a book only 314 pages long, but I stuck it out and the story got better. The writing is a bit simplistic, but I'm sure my 12 year old self would have loved it. I'm going to give Book 2 of the series a chance, mainly because I like the relationship between Cadderly and Danica. They're both strong characters, and 👇👇👇

RamsFan1963 Danica doesn't seem like the kind of female character who will get turned into a damsel in distress. 3 💥💥💥 2w

In the early days of children's publishing, many companies chose to print in 4 color style,as seen here. Brown eventually left a company in favor of Golden's full color printing. I love the way Muffin is all splotches! Books developed with children's input on sounds to be captivating and educational, Brown created the Noisy Book series. This was published in 1940. #BBRC #LetterC

If dark, twisty thrillers are your thing, you'll love this book. This book follows three main female characters as they try to solve a gruesome crime. Just when I thought I had things in this book figured out, the author switched things up and left me intrigued and wondering what he'd do next. It's a 700+ page book, but it felt like less. Trigger warnings: child abuse, animal abuse, suicide

FlowerFairy Thank you for the TW! There are some things I prefer to avoid. 🙃 6mo

I‘m not a big fan of Trump. I quite enjoyed this read. Reilly was funny and told some great stories of how golf explains the Trumpster. 5⭐️ #litsyatoz #listsyatoz2019 #letterc #c #bookstagram #bookreview

This was my #LetterC for #LitsyAtoZ (in translation). It was a funny little cozy mystery with several odd twists and turns, and I quite enjoyed it! Breezy, short and entertaining, the perfect palate cleanser or read for those times when it‘s hard to concentrate. I plant to read others in this series.

What an amazing book! Just the thing to liven up my crappy week(throat infection needing IV antibiotics. Hospital. Yay🙄), this gorgeous signed edition It‘s the story of Circe, goddess daughter of Helios the Sun God & Perse daughter of Oceanus. Unloved & unwanted she turns her back on the gods to become a witch. A story that just flows with magic & wonder. 10⭐️ #MountTBR2019 #Bk5 #LitsyAtoZ2019 #LetterC #LittenLoveBingo #LLB19 #aBOTMpick

Lizpixie @BookBoggart I know how you feel! I just read Song Of Achilles before this, now there‘s no more Madeline books to read. I hope she writes more soon, there‘s so many Greek myths to be retold, I‘d love to hear Paris‘s story or Heracles. Or the story of Artemis & Orion.🦌✨🏹 (edited) 11mo

Got to Chapter 7 in this novel, I‘ve finally realised that reading with a magnifying glass is much worse than forking out over $700 for new glasses.🤓 This is for #MountTBR2019 #MtKilimanjaro #Bk5 #LitsyAtoZ2019 #LetterC & #LitsyLoveBingo #LLB19 #aBOTMpick

MelissaSue81 $700 for new glasses?! Yikes. Look into zenni optical! I got mine for $7! But I have a very basic presicription. 11mo
Linsy Gorgeous cover! 11mo
JaclynW What a lovely cover! 😍 11mo

TheLibrarian I agree with @MelissaSue81 - try Zenni. My eye prescription is pretty bad and it forces me to get the highest index lenses, but they were still only $75, plus $25 for frames. Cheaper than using my insurance. 11mo
BookishMarginalia What a gorgeous edition! 11mo
rather_be_reading gorgeous! 11mo
minkyb I wear progressive lenses and they are ridiculously expensive even using online discount sites. It is quite depressing. 11mo

With a lovely writing style and subtle insights about human behaviour, The Child Finder presents a “thriller” that is less thrilling than it is introspective. I was let down by the fact that it was marketed as a thriller/mystery/suspense novel, but I was able to figure out who the captor was by page 19 of the book, with the rest of the puzzle pieces falling into place shortly after. Overall, it was just a 3-star read for me. #LitsyAtoZ #LetterC
