BookNAround I can‘t figure out where to mark it as sent on the site. I sent mine on the 11th and in tracking it today, it has made it through 4 different portal stations but has yet to get to Canada, where it is heading. Hopefully soon! They claimed it would take 6-10 days when I mailed it. 8mo
TheBookDream I think I marked it sent in Elfster 8mo
Endowarrior21 @BookNAround Click on the person you are sending to and it should give you a tab to mark sent. 8mo

Girls Made of Snow and Glass | Melissa Bashardoust

Labeled as a dark, feminist retelling of Snow White, this was a fun read. I wouldn‘t consider it to be any darker than the original Grim version. However it was delightfully feminist & original. I think the author managed to find the essence of the female characters, allowing us to see deeper into their hearts then before & why that might lead them to certain choices. Set in a land cursed with perpetual winter it‘s perfect for this time of year.⬇️

MeganAnn There are no princes, but we do get a bit of romance in the sweet way Lynet explored her emerging feelings for another girl. The main story focuses on the relationship between Lynet & stepmom Mina. The ending gave me all the feels as Mina & Lynet find a different ending than the original fairytale. This would be a perfect read for teen girls of any age who like fantasy or fairytales. Thanks to @Mommamanzi for gifting this 2yrs ago in the #cozyswap 1y
MeganAnn @TheAromaofBooks this was also my #bookspin for December ❄️🎉😍 1y
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 1y

megnews I‘m looking forward to hearing your review of the Sun does Shine. It‘s been in my tbr for awhile. Also looking forward to Book of Lost Friends review. I read it and look forward to seeing what you think 2y
ravenlee Cranberry Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holiday books! It was out of print for so long, I was ecstatic when I saw it had been rereleased! 2y
sblbooks @megnews They both have good reviews so I'm looking forward to it. Do you ever watch YouTube videos? I wanted to read The Sun Does Shine after listening to Krista's at Books and Jams review it. 2y
sblbooks @ravenlee Oh, that's good to know. I might have to order the hardcover, instead of just ordering the ebook. 2y

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I too am anxiously awaiting all the halloween swaps! @MaleficentBookDragon has hosted #AllHallowsReadSwap in the past & @LibrarianRyan has done a #NightmareSwap . Not sure if they are again, but they're good swap hosts/Littens to follow. Bring on Spooky Season! 🕸👻😁 2y
MaleficentBookDragon I‘ll be doing sign ups for the #allhallowsreadswap at the end of the month. 2y
LibrarianRyan @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I can not decide if I want to do a nightmare swap or a makers swap. What are your thoughts. 2y
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @LibrarianRyan 🤔 I'd be into a nightmare swap. I'm not terribly crafty unfortunately. But I'm sure the Littens would love whatever you decide to do. 2y
Littlewolf1 @jenniferw88 @wanderinglynn @sprainedbrain @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @MaleficentBookDragon @LibrarianRyan thank you all so much… I‘m looking forward to getting the chance to participate this year 👻 2y
jenniferw88 @sprainedbrain 🎉🎉🎉! I'm only going to do one Halloween swap this year, and as I'm REALLY getting into the witchy spirit, I'm pretty sure it's going to be yours - sorry @wanderinglynn ! 2y
Littlewolf1 @jenniferw88 I keep missing them every year so I think I‘m gonna go for all of them… Next year I might dwindle down 2y
sprainedbrain @jenniferw88 I‘m determined to get you a really good match this time, my friend! ❤️ 2y
Littlewolf1 @ferskner @Avanders @Chrissyreadit Are you guys hosting the #CozySwap this year? (edited) 2y
Avanders Oh I‘m sorry — I hosted my old falling for fall swap instead this year — super early! I had sign ups last month… but I think @wanderinglynn ‘s will have a non-scary option if you wanted to focus on fall and cozies ☺️ 2y
Avanders (Though if @ferskner and @Chrissyreadit do the #cozyswap again this year, I‘m all about signing up for that!!) 2y
ferskner I've had a doozy of a summer so the #cozyswap wasn't on my mind at all. I'm sorry you're missing it this year, @Littlewolf1! @Avanders @Chrissyreadit 2y
Chrissyreadit @ferskner @Avanders @Littlewolf1 this fall I am also just wanting to join a swap vs organize a swap….. 2y
alisiakae So I just started a hashtag to help people find all the fall/Halloween stuff going on this year! #AVeryLitsyHalloween 2y
Littlewolf1 @4thhouseontheleft that‘s brilliant, thank you 2y

One of the first swaps I ever participated in on Litsy was the 2019 #CozySwap and this was one of the books. Less than two years to read it 😂 Back then I didn't write down who my swap buddy was, so I can't remember who actually sent it!!!

Anyway, this was a fun if somewhat run-of-the-mill cozy, setting up the MC and town as the first in a series. I enjoyed but didn't love it, especially when Tessa was just doing really dumb stuff, like ⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) confronting her husband's probable murderer... by herself... at night... in an isolated location... without telling anyone where she's going. 🙄 A soft pick, but it probably won't stop me from reading the next in the series haha

Mexican Gothic | Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Noemi' father asked her to visit her cousin in High Place after she wrote a letter insinuating that her husband was trying to poison her. Noemí will find out what is happening in that house. Story is creepy, some gory & disgusting scenes, expected in horror novels. The end, a little too cheesy. What is happening, too "vegan"☺️But it kept my attention in last pages. 3.85⭐️ #Scarathlon2020 #TeamHarkness @StayCurious 26 points ?

Gissy Bookmark bought in Etsy store recommended by @Megabooks 👌 3y

LeahBergen Great photo! 💀 3y
Gissy @maich I'm not an expert in horror novels but it was ok but not great. It kept my attention but I know that persons that love this genre will find it meh. But I'm a chicken in some horror novels☺️so it was ok for me. 3y
Gissy Besides the story, I love this cover😍 3y
Sleepswithbooks Love the mugs!!! 3y
Gissy Thank you @Stacypatrice I like that Mexican cultural tradition. Maybe because I love the animated movies Coco and The Book of Life🤗 3y
Gissy @Stacypatrice I forgot to mention that the mug glows with hot liquids 3y
Sleepswithbooks @Gissy How cool!!!! 3y
Gissy @LeahBergen Thank you! I love that Mexican tradition. Also, Coco the movie was so special for me even when it is an animated movie😢 3y
Megabooks Ooo! I hope you like it. This is a fantastic photo!!! 😍 3y
Chrissyreadit Was the coffee as yummy as I hoped it would be? 3y
Gissy @Chrissyreadit It is!! I also add a small amount of ground cinnamon on the top☕️mmmm 3y
alisiakae Love your photo! I really wanted to read this during Screamathon, but I‘m stuck in the 70‘s on my library holds list. Started out in the 200s, it‘s a really in demand book! 3y

This was one of the books in my #cozyswap. Unconventional setting for a cozy mystery with a daring, rather than reluctant, amateur slooth; a nice change of pace from the typical format.
