I got a Kindle Paperwhite to replace my Fire. I‘m liking it so far! And what a fun book to get started on it 🧡

Legion | William Peter Blatty

Blatty‘s novels are always interesting. While reading, I kept thinking that some scenes seemed so unnecessary. Long pointless dialogue, overly descriptive narrations. Everything ends up making sense later in the novel. I haven‘t seen the movie. I‘ve seen The Exorcist, of course, but it‘s been awhile.

⭐️: 4/5

Some people call me a hoarder; I think of myself more a lover of books who cannot with any once they become a #possession of mine.

Work progress in my home library - a side of the room I have not really shown in the past.

Catch up day for #LilithJuly - a migraine kept me from work and from basically everything else.

KarenUK Hope you are feeling better 💕 4d
Cinfhen Ugh, I know all about migraines 🤕Hope the meds kicked in and you‘re feeling better today 4d

#lilithjuly #possession @Cinfhen @KarenUK No, this is not a car commercial - it‘s a warning. First - never let your husband loose with a camera. Second - beware of what happens when your car gets possessed...

KarenUK So great! 😂💕 4d

The Razor's Edge | W. Somerset Maugham
post image


(Day 12 - #Possession)

“The sharp edge of a razor is difficult to pass over; thus the wise say the path to Salvation is hard.” -Katha Upanishad
The above quote is the epigraph (translated) for “The Razor‘s Edge”; to my mind one of the best novels to illustrate and contrast materialism and spiritualism. The main character, Larry Darrell, wanders in search of a spiritual philosophy to help him find meaning after his experience in WWI.

Spillmrj Did you see the movie as well? I did and it was quite disappointing. 5d
gradcat @Spillmrj I‘ve only seen the 1946 version, which I quite liked. Are you referring to that one, or the 1984 version with Bill Murray? I know that the 1984 one got terrible reviews, so if you saw that one, I get you. I think after the earlier version, with Tyrone Power & Gene Tierney, it would be hard to measure up to that. 3d

The Possessions | Sara Flannery Murphy

"And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
And after I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear"

It might be a bit of an obvious choice with the title, but this is the first book I thought of for #Possession. I love the cover. Although many didn't like this book & I didn't love it, I did appreciate the unique premise & its bleak beauty & somewhat dystopian vibe.??

KarenUK Such a good cover 😍 5d
Megabooks This was a surprise pick for me in the #botmchallenge! 5d
Cinfhen I remember when this was a #BOTM selection!! It‘s one I passed on but the cover is still memorable 💄 5d

The Two Mutch Sisters | Carol Brendler

#LilithJuly Day 12: From Fats‘ review: “Meet Violet and Ruby. They are known as the Mutch sisters. The Mutch sisters are big collectors and they also buy two of everything—from toy teapots when they were younger to two sundials, two snorkels, two clavichords, and two tapestries when they got older. That wasn‘t even half of their #possession(s)! The house was jammed with so many things.” Her full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-kqp

gradcat This is a great tie-in for the prompt—love it! ♥️ 5d
KarenUK 💕💕💕 5d
Cinfhen Adorable!!! 5d

#LilithJuly #possession
“At the end, all that's left of you are your possessions. Perhaps that's why I've never been able to throw anything away. Perhaps that's why I hoarded the world: with the hope that when I died, the sum total of my things would suggest a life larger than the one I lived.”
― Nicole Krauss, The History of Love

Leo Gursky is one of my favorite characters.... he just breaks my heart...💔💔
