Gone Girl | Gillian Flynn

“It's a very difficult era in which to be a person, just a real, actual person, instead of a collection of personality traits selected from an endless Automat of characters. And if all of us are play-acting, there can be no such thing as a soul mate, because we don't have genuine souls.”

LiterRohde @KarenUK It was. Check out my review from a couple days ago if you haven‘t already. 2mo
KarenUK I saw it, loved it! Great review..... 2mo
LiterRohde @KarenUK My apologies. I didn‘t see your name in the ‘likes‘ section of the post so I assumed you didn‘t see it. You know what they say about assuming. 2mo

The Party | Robyn Harding

It‘s all fun and games at Hannah‘s sweet 16, until she and her friends break the rules. What results is a true test of morality and friendship.

A friend told me to read this so I did. I didn‘t love it, I didn‘t hate it. It‘s definitely one of those quick summer reads that holds your attention by the pool. #foolishgames #lilithjuly

KarenUK Never heard of this one...... 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
Reviewsbylola My friend picked it up at Target. It is one of their “club” picks. But I agree, I‘d never heard of it either. 😆 @KarenUK 2mo

The Spite Game | Anna Snoekstra
post image

I believe that games of spite, lying, hating, and hunger are games that can't really be won, and are all #FoolishGames to play. I have read three of these game-titled books and one (The Lying Game) is in my #TBR stack.

KarenUK I liked the Lying game... I‘m also hoping Ruth Ware‘s new one turns up at work as an ARC 🤞🤞🤞🤞 2mo

Don‘t know the song, but the artist is Jewell.....this is all I‘ve got people. Been a long and stressful day!

KarenUK I enjoyed The Girls (in the garden) It had this extended title in the US.... I think I remember there being a map of the community garden, and I always love a mystery with a map! 💕😊👍 2mo
erzascarletbookgasm Ha! Nice interpretation. Hope you‘ll be able to have a restful evening 💕 2mo

#lilithjuly day 16: It may just be me, but I thought the Triwizard Tournament was a series of #foolishgames. Not a spectator-friendly competition, that‘s for sure!

KarenUK Particularly the underwater one! 😂 2mo
wideeyedreader @KarenUK Right! What did the spectators do?, stand there peering at the water? 😄 2mo

In Oneida, it was common practice to play #FoolishGames with the heart - it was frowned upon to get overly attached to one person. And if you did, well, that wasn‘t exactly the spirit of free love.

This was just an okay read for me - dry in parts, though it makes me want to visit Oneida and tour the big house. And, the author is a descendant of this community. #LilithJuly

Cinfhen I recently read a book that weaves the Oneida story into the modern day utopian tale. I thought it was well done and really fascinating 👉🏾 2mo
Librarybelle Thanks, @Cinfhen ! I missed your post on that, but found it and stacked the book. It looks interesting! 2mo
KarenUK Another great historical pick! 😊👍 2mo

#LilithJuly I know I‘ve used this book before, but I‘ll stand behind it (again) When it comes to #FoolishGames Mike and V set the bar pretty high 😜 This thriller belongs along the lines of Gone Girl. Twisted and psychotic and maybe not quite believable but still a slow motion train wreck that‘s hard to stop watching/reading.

KarenUK On my shelf, unread of course 😂..... sounds like a page-turner 👍 2mo
KarenUK And hope your jet lag isn‘t too awful! 💕😴😴 2mo
