#LilithJuly Day 24: #DooWop
“Girls you know you'd better watch out
Some guys, some guys are only about
That thing, that thing, that thing”
The lyrics seem perfect for Ada who, with gods inside her, is driven to frenzied lust & self-harm. This is an absorbing, gritty, dark read, keeping me company while I lounged around my sister-in-law‘s pool in the Bay Area yesterday. Now at the SFO airport, on my way to Nashville with family & still reading it.

KarenUK Safe trip! And this book sounds like a perfect pick 💕😊 6h

#LilithJuly #CentralReservation Another unread NF waiting on my Kindle ~ this one is about César Ritz ( the famous hotelier) and Auguste Escoffier ( one of the finest chefs in the world) A story about their friendship and collaboration dating back to the 1800‘s. Book is meant to be fabulous and I added on the audio for my upcoming road trip. ?

KarenUK Can‘t wait to see what you think... it sounds really good. And nice use of today‘s song choice! 🤓🙌🙌💕 9h
SaturnDoo Ummm... I ❤ the cover of the book just below the mentioned one. Just say'n 😂🤣😂🤣 7h
Cinfhen I agree @SaturnDoo it‘s lovely 😍I have high hopes for the nonfiction @KarenUK especially since I‘m hoping hubs will be interested too 3h

#LilithJuly #CentralReservation
This psychological-thriller kicks off with a rain-soaked road accident that sets the book‘s events into motion.

This is one of my favorites from this genre (a genre that I have a real feeling of ennui with at the mo!) The characters are well-developed, it has a really tense ominous feeling throughout, and a good couple of twists.

Cinfhen This was such a fantastic book!!!!! The author never really recaptured the magic with her follow up novels 😬 10h
KarenUK @cinfhen totally agree! Though I did just pick up a novel by her (not a thriller) that looks pretty good 10h
Cinfhen Wasn‘t aware of that one...l will check it out xx thanks, Karen 9h

TrishB Her new one is based on her life experience , mentioned in this interview https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2019/jul/20/my-new-novel-allowed-me-to-... sounds very sad! @Cinfhen not read yet either. But looks good. 4h
KarenUK Thanks for sharing @TrishB sounds incredibly heartbreaking... 4h
Cinfhen Oh wow @TrishB sounds very sad 😔 will you be able to read?!? 3h

Today feels like my #ManicMonday , since it‘s re-entry day at work, after a long weekend!

Not necessarily a #CentralReservation , but this book details marriages between the British aristocracy and American heiresses. This era really fascinates me. The ostentation and the desires of these American mothers to have a title in the family. I recently bought this book...haven‘t had a chance to read it yet. #LilithJuly

KarenUK I find this fascinating too.... And that cover is very ‘Downton Abbey‘ 😍 11h
Crazeedi Looks good! 11h
Cinfhen I think @Mdargusch would like this book!!! Hi Marilyn 😃 10h
Jillylovesbooks PBS had a series about this subject that was hosted by Elizabeth McGovern. It was called Million Dollar American Princesses 2h

#LilithJuly Lori Gottlieb has been keeping me company this past week. Her honesty and hysteria is endearing and comforting. Making #ManicMonday manageable 😁 still in a reading slump but taking baby steps.

Centique Think of it more as a “slowing” than a slump! It‘s okay for reading to take a bit of a back seat for a little while - you‘ve had an Awesome reading year 👏👏👏 You might benefit from a little break or maybe just a change. However it goes you‘re still a #readingqueen 💕 17h
TrishB It‘s a temporary thing whilst you have so many other things! 😘 17h
Megabooks This is a fantastic book! Enjoy. (I may have cried a little at the end.) 16h

Kalalalatja I‘m reading this at the moment, too, and I‘m learning SO MUCH! I‘m halfway, and already thinking it might end up as one of my top faves this year 👌 16h
KarenUK Have this one queued up on Audio.... you know I‘m not a big Non-Fic girl, but I think this one might be for me... 🤷‍♀️ 11h
Cinfhen You‘re going to love this one @KarenUK ♥️ cheaper than seeing a therapist but listening to Lori you get all of the benefits of her wisdom @Kalalalatja @Megabooks 10h
Cinfhen Thanks @Centique @TrishB its like my brain is stuck in molasses 🧠I just can‘t seem to absorb the words although I am enjoying the “human interaction” 😜 10h
