My Not So Perfect Life | Sophie Kinsella
post image

Katie Brenner has the perfect life, everyone in her company has the perfect life. Until she finds out, it's all a #PerfectIllusion.

Great as an audiobook, the narrator does her level best to do the different accents.

The Wild Girl | Kate Forsyth
post image

I really missed playing along with photo challenges last month, so I'm jumping back in with #AugustGrrrl . Catching up on yesterday's #wildestdreams , it would be mine to have a career like these Australian historical fiction women writers.

Cinfhen So glad you're back! And I agree, how awesome would that be?!? I love Kate Morton. 2y
GondorGirl I adore Kate Morton! 2y

I've read creepy books for years and years, but this one I actually had to put down for a while because it gave me #wildestdreams. #augustgrrrl

Bklover Although this is the BEST written creepy book I've ever read! 2y
kspenmoll I must reread this; read it ages ago. 2y
Bklover @kspenmoll It was a reread for me too. I'm glad I did- I don't think I appreciated how well written it is when I read it last. 2y

Cinfhen I love true crime! This one was brilliant 2y
Bklover @Cinfhen Yes!!! 2y
BarbaraBB Brilliant indeed. And creepy! 2y
kspenmoll Will take your advice! 2y
CoffeeK8 This book is amazing! I don't think I'd ever read true crime if not for Reading this when I was a teenager. 2y
AmyG This is just the best book. It's why I love true crime as a genre. 2y
tpixie I need to read!! Always been afraid- since I'm a Kansan!! 2y
Bklover @BarbaraBB @CoffeeK8 @AmyG I agree with all of you! Fantastic! 2y
Bklover @tpixie Definitely worth it! (But I'd read it during the day!) 2y
tpixie @Bklover thx for the advice!!! 2y
KathyWheeler This was the weirdest reading experience for me. I started to read it and wouldn't get past chapter 1. This happened every year for at least 10 years, and I'd even seen both movies so it's not as if I was afraid. I finally read it; it's great. 2y
Bklover @KathyWheeler I get it- it's like going to a dark place. 2y
KathyWheeler @Bklover Yes-- I think that was it. 2y

I don't know what provoked me to watch this trailer a couple of days ago. 🤡😵 I couldn't even make it through the whole thing. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xKJmEC5ieOk&feature=youtu.be

I've had the #wildestdreams - and not jn a good way - the last 2 nights. What's wrong with my brain?!?! I'm such a 🐔💩 #augustgrrrl

raeintheworld Totally with you. I didn't make it more than ten seconds into the trailer. Nope! 2y
britt_brooke @raeintheworld I'm happy it's not just me. I cannot do scary AT ALL. 2y
Gayan I cannot wait to see this! I hope it's warm enough on opening night that I can wear a tank top and show off my IT tattoo. 😂 2y

Readingrobin We were subjected to the trailer while there to see the lovely "The Big Sick"! Ack. I don't get that at all! 2y
AnnieReads The trailer freaked me out. I can't wait to see the movie. 2y
Kmmsellers I'm the same. Even this picture gave me goosebumps. 2y
britt_brooke @Gayan 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Ok, I'm going to need to see this tattoo! 2y
britt_brooke @AnnieReads I wish I could watch and read scary stuff, but nope. 2y
Ms_T That creepy clown though! 😧🤡 2y
Cinfhen I saw this trailer at the theater 🎭 OMG 😲 scary!!!! 2y
ABrakes85 Me too... can't entertain horrors 💩 2y
Cathythoughts Oh no , It's coming soon 😱 2y
stacybmartin Umm yeah the trailer freaked me out - I don't think I'll make it through the movie. 2y
8leagueboot It looks absolutely terrifying! 2y
britt_brooke @Kmmsellers Me too! Sorry you had to see it in the feed, lol .... I almost didn't post it because I knew I'd see it every time I checked Litsy. 😱 2y
britt_brooke @ABrakes85 @stacybmartin @8leagueboot I'll definitely be skipping the movie. Book, too! I can't handle scary at all. 2y
Lola Watch the '90 version. It's so cheesy and silly, it will all balance out. Plus Tim Curry is Pennywise which is awesome. John Ritter and John Boy Walton (Richard Thomas) are in it and a hoot as well. 2y
britt_brooke @Lola Ha! Sounds campy. I assumed there was a good reason it has been remade, but the older one does sound entertaining! 2y
vivastory Have you seen the clown in American Horror Story: Freak Show? I'm not typically scared of clowns, but jesus. It is terrifying. 2y
minkyb @britt_brooke We went to see Atomic Blonde yesterday and It was one of the trailers. Scared me silly. It's been an eternity since I first read this and it still scares me! 2y
britt_brooke @vivastory No, but of course I had to google him. Holy hell. 😱 2y
britt_brooke @minkyb Since you've read the book, are you planning to go see it? 2y
minkyb @britt_brooke I can't. I would never sleep again. 2y
readinginthedark I always have crazy dreams, so I get it. There's no way I'm watching this. After watching the first episode of Sons of Anarchy, I had a nightmare about a family member dying and I was being chased by the police... 2y
britt_brooke @minkyb Good decision! I definitely wouldn't either. 2y
britt_brooke @readinginthedark I'm glad it's not just me. 2y

These books give me the #wildestdreams. These historians (don't call them time travelers!) "observe historical events in contemporary time." They're only meant to observe, but history has a way of sucking them in....

Jess7 Love the graphic!!! Super creative and on point 👌🙌🏼👏 2y

It's a little late but this is what came to mind when I saw the #wildestdreams prompt for #augustgrrrl. Ronan can bring things from his dreams back to reality but is he the only one with this ability and are there consequences?
@Cinfhen

Cinfhen Excellent choice! And you're never late to my party 🎉 😊 2y
ReadingRover Loved this one. My favorite in the series! 2y

Travesties | Tom Stoppard
post image

In Travesties, Stoppard dreams up a fictional meeting in 1917 between writer James Joyce, artist Tristan Tzara, and Communist leader Lenin. (They were actually all living in Zurich, but there is no evidence they actually met.)

In this dream meeting, the historical figures accidentally re-create large portions of Oscar Wilde's The Importance Of Being Earnest, making the entire play the #WILDEstDreams possible.

heikemarie I love Stoppard! 2y
Yossarian @inwhichHeikereadsharder Stoppard loves you too! 2y
heikemarie @Yossarian while I wish I had known sooner, this is great news! 2y

Yossarian @inwhichHeikereadsharder It's never to late! Rosenkrantz and Guildenstern may be dead, but Tom is still alive! 2y
heikemarie @Yossarian if you need me, my living hopes and I will be waiting at that table from Arcadia for Tom (first name basis, obviously) 2y

The City & The City | China Miville
post image

If I think of something amazing that takes me beyond my #wildestdreams I instantly think of this book. If you haven't read it, you should. I want to tell you that you must but I don't control your life. The premise is singular (two cities exist in the same space and must un-see the others' existence) with compelling writing and plot and lots to think about. @Cinfhen #AugustGrrrl

heikemarie Hey @Cinfhen maybe I live under a rock but what does #wildestdreams refer to? Google says it's a TSwift song? 2y
Yossarian This is one of my all-time favorites. I want to compare things to this book every day and get frustrated that not everyone has read it. 2y
heikemarie @Yossarian Agreed - It is brilliant and almost disturbingly relevant. 2y

Cinfhen Sounds brilliant❣️it is a TS song....#DontJudgeMe This entire month's prompts are song titles sung by fierce & fabulous females 🚺 2y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk Love this book and everything else by Miéville! 2y
heikemarie @Cinfhen no judgement!! My music taste runs a little random is all so I'm not up on the t swizzle references (if that's what the kids call her these days) 2y
heikemarie @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Yes love him! This may be my fave. 2y
Cinfhen Who's on your playlist?? 2y
heikemarie @Cinfhen well, lots of heavy metal and then some more mainstream hard rock. I do listen to lots of 90s and early 00s pop, pop rock, alternative too so I'm not totally hopeless!! I listen to a good amount of socially conscious hip hop as well. But I think around 2007 is when my understanding of new pop music stopped 😅it's not you it's me!! 2y
Cinfhen No, I get it! I have eclectic taste in music too. I like a bit of everything & honestly I was looking for song titles that would also work as book prompts... 2y
heikemarie @Cinfhen well for girls in metal and rock .... there's lacuna cool so "our truth" - evanescence was super mainstream - "being me to life" - old school Joan Jett - "bad reputation" - hole - "celebrity skin" (that might be too weird...) - siouxie - "the passenger" - garbage "stupid girl" or "only happy when it rains" 2y
Cinfhen Those are all great! This month's playlist is already set but I'll keep those titles for future use! 2y
