Okay so I just wanted to warn everyone that this list can change on daily basis this is how I feel today. Nevertheless is really interesting to do it!

1. Roald Dahl (specially his short stories for adults)
2. Gabriel García Márquez (I am Colombian. This guy was amazing)
3. Margaret Atwood
4. Joe Hill
5. Murakami (I love how he can jump from one genre to the other. Same as Atwood and Garcia Márquez

britt_brooke Great choices! 4mo

mellissimo Hello Caro, I'm sorry to spoil the surprise but I sent you a #cupidgoespostal package some weeks ago and just received it back saying that you didn't pick it up. What now? Should I send it again? @BookishMarginalia 4mo
CaroPi @mellissimo oh that is really strange! I didn't even got a notification to pick it up. If you give me your email I send you my work address. Someone is always there. So sorry to hear that. Is also very strange 4mo

Is an ok thriller I enjoyed but don't find it exceptional. Is a shame I had very high expectations. This was my book #4 in the #24in48 #readathon #readingwomen2019
#readingwomenchallenge

Stephaniereads1 Oh no I have been dying to read this. 😿 5mo
CaroPi @Stephaniereads1 well at least not for me. Maybe because I just finished "sometimes I Lie" that I really like. But I also love books that other people don't like so much. In my case the narration was good, but the twist... Nothing really special. Is just a matter of taste 5mo

justanothermusing I'm glad to know someone else loved that movie as a kid. Its where I learned what incest was and felt the need to educate everyone else. I'm pretty sure there was a parent teacher as a result. 5mo
LibrarianRyan #9. Love it. 👍🏻😁🤓 5mo
CaroPi @justanothermusing Well my parents are very liberal so I didn't understood why the other kids couldn't know about this great movie. I wanted to talk about the twist... My mom and I talked about it recently. It seems that was not a good parents teacher meeting (edited) 5mo

This a beautiful book. Is about learning to let go. Specially when you are young. But is not only for young people is devided in two short stories that the main character is a young person who lost someone close to them and need to go on with their lives. Incredible book. #womanwriter

I have been traveling since yesterday night to go back home. Waiting for my third fly in less than 24 hours (or more if you count started yesterday night time difference is terrible) but Sedaris is always a good choice. In these #shortstories we learn a lot about human behavior like the fables I used to read. But these are not for kids

So today at 20 hrs my door rings. I am surprised. Nobody was supposed to come. Is the mailman with a huge box for me. I got all these amazing books that really wanted plus the coloring book and colors. Also the sticky notes that I am afraid to use. This is an amazing present @Avanders : Do you have anything to do with this?

Avanders Yay!!! Yes! So sorry your #fffs package never appeared! This was to make sure you still received something and to bring some seasonal cheer ♥️♥️♥️ I'm only sorry I wasn't able to send something sooner! 🤗 7mo
CaroPi @Avanders are you kidding? Is amazing. I knew my package was lost in the Polish post office (that is why I always ask for tracking number) and not because it wasn't send. When you say you will make up for me never cross my mind something like this. Is amazing and shows you really look in my taste. This is the reason why my boyfriend is jealous of my Litsy exchanges. 7mo
squirrelbrain What a lovely package - and how sweet of you @Avanders ! 7mo
Avanders @CaroPi lol! Well I never meant to make your boyfriend jealous! 😆 I think it's just terrible when things are lost or destroyed in the mail - it makes me sad! 😞 So I'm so glad you like what I chose for you!! ♥️♥️♥️ 7mo

I really like it this audiobook. It bothers me that it was narrated by an American while book is about a British runner as well as I didn't like the fact that they change pounds for dollars but was a good narration. It motivates me to run more and was a great recommendation from @angela_fi13
