My belated #foodandlit #cuba read. I loved this book- told from three viewpoints, in a time and place I know very little Cuba and the fight for Freedom from Spain, and simultaneously about one of my favorite times and places- historical NYC. I loved the characters and the writing and am so glad I read it.

KristiAhlers This might be my favorite of hers so far 3h
Texreader So glad you liked it. It was a fascinating read 2h

Heartbreaking. Also, how does this happen? It does not seem functional or sustainable. #foodandlit #afghanistan

1.The tagged is an ebook from the library, I‘m also reading a physical book and listening to an audiobook. It all depends on my space and time.
2. The tagged book is incredible but sad.
3. I only mark my LMPBC at this time but I want to mark up some of my nonfiction books.

I love this world. I liked the bones of this book- literally and figuratively- this was not my favorite- and there‘s no way to read this as a stand alone- and I have some thoughts I‘d love to discuss if anyone else wants to chat in a thread here.

HeyT Oh is this the latest? I think I‘m almost caught up with the series 3d

Finished - and sending TODAY - I think this was a different spin on some horror, bad ass teen, girls kick ass , fantasy tropes. It reminded me faintly of Red Rising. I liked the world and character building- I thought at times it had the potential for depth of a more “adult” complex book and felt like a YA/Adult hybrid. #lmpbc

BookwormAHN I agree I think it fits into the "new adult" category. 1w

I remember 25 year old me reading The Female Body- because we do not receive the education or medical treatment we should. Abortion is not political. It is medical, science and deeply personal. For a country entrenched in personal Liberty the hypocrisy is not just glaring but ironically life threatening. Thankful for books that provide education.

sprainedbrain ❤️ 2w
GingerAntics How much personal liberty do we really have though? If you‘re white, male, and Protestant, you have personal freedom. The more you diverge from that, the less personal freedom you really have. 2w

Thank you so much Deb! The thoughtfulness and energy in this Beltane box is gorgeous. The photos do not do ANY of it Justice! I love the bookmarks and Change card so much- change is exactly the process I‘m in 💚 and I LOVE the moon theme- because I do not have anything related to it and it‘s good to feel comfortable with both day and night. I love my besom and stones! And my anti stress jar! The moon you sent is beautiful. And love the Deck!!!!!

I think I started this at the beginning of the Pandemic. This morning I urgently needed to read the last section and finish it. Maybe I needed a year, or two of Wintering. I appreciate the concepts and flow of language. I‘m tired though, and it could be I do not rest enough (or that along with life I have Flu A). I know Spring is here, and I‘m so grateful that seasons cycle in both earth and life. BTW I am so grateful for all of you in litsy. ❤️

An excellent second book. Raven, the main character has many flaws and a dark side but I love him and his partner in detecting continues to grow through adversity in this historical fiction mystery with medicine in the background. @Mitch recommended the books and is right- they are a great read for mystery and medical books.

TheAromaofBooks My only real problem is that I read that trilogy and the Aurora Cycle at almost the same time and even though they have completely different plots, they both involved space and time jumping and a group of snarky friends so they have somehow mushed together in my brain into one giant story 😂 2mo

I apparently forgot to make a #bfc March post- but my BIG goals do not change too much- I continue to work on regaining strength, managing diabetes and reading of course. Áreas Im finding challenging are exposure to French fries and eating out. I really want to read my buddy reads- but am struggling with “serious” topics and craving escape. So one goal is using balance in my reading. I continue to use LOVE and Recommend the Balance App.

TheAromaofBooks Is there anyone in the world who can resist the temptation of a good French fry?? 2mo

Sending you hugs and love and gratitude my friend🧡💛🧡💛

All the Stars! I absolutely loved this book, partially told in verse that takes place in Ancient Greece. I think it is considered middle grade, but I consider it ageless. I felt immersed in the story, in love with the characters, and this will be a favorite for a long time to come. #foodandlit #greece

Texreader Beautiful review and so glad you found a favorite because of #foodandlit!!! 2mo
Catsandbooks Ooo this sounds interesting! 2mo
PageShifter For me all book are ageless. You should never loose your inner child. This cover looks awesome and I am glad you enjoyed! 2mo

We‘ve loved celebrating additional #wheeloftheyear stops with Litsy friends, and want to keep it going! For (Northern Hemisphere) Beltane on May 1, we are not planning a full litsy style swap, but instead a #BeltaneBox exchange. Participants will send 1 witchy book along with 3 or more items to help your friend celebrate the sabbat, such as a small May basket, ingredients for a spell or ritual, symbolic items, the possibilities are endless! ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Chrissyreadit We are tagging some friends who may be interested, but the event is open to anyone who wishes to send some witchy fun to help a fellow witch to celebrate Beltane. Time is of the essence, so if you would like a link to sign up please comment below and send an email to SprainedBrain.litsy@gmail.com Questions? Ask @sprainedbrain or @Chrissyreadit . Sign ups will end March 27, matches by March 29, open May 1. Blessed Be! (edited) 2mo
wanderinglynn I‘d love to but I‘ll be traveling for work nearly all of April. 2mo

This entire spread highlighted the collective fear and concern of the world. Emotions are meant to help protect us and give impetus for preparation and change. So even a dark spread reminds us we have agency and opportunity. Thank you @ErinSueMreads for sharing this activity on litsy during this Season of renewal and rebirth. We are always growing. 💚💛💚#tarottakeover

AmyG Yes. I also viewed this in a “world sense”. Scary but....hopeful that the world can mourn, feel it‘s collective grief and move forward. 2mo
AmyG And this tarot journey….I started today to pull a card (each day)….and today‘s card was eerily accurate. It‘s all pretty wild. 2mo
Chrissyreadit @AmyG yes!!! For me it is all satisfying. I‘m glad you are enjoying the journey💛 2mo

MittenGirlPeach What wonderful, magical gifts! And I spy Raven Black amongst the books: such an amazing series. 2mo

I see this as fitting beautifully with the spread. We are a divided culture and divided generationally with a need to conform required by old some- and the “kids” saying don‘t tell me who I am- yet still simultaneously we need to feel belonging that is provided by tradition and ceremony. I also see how this is what people “know” and there can be fear of change. I shared my outside the norm books, and one about designing who you are. #tarottakeover

Chrissyreadit @AmyG my next connection to most recent pull. 2mo

I‘m behind, but Stoics recognize struggle as necessary and strife as unavoidable. So does Existentialism. And Reflecting on what I read in Braiding Sweetgrass and This Life I consider them also sources to honor the growth of internal conflicts in learning who we are and how we become. #tarottakeover

ErinSueMreads Braiding sweet grass is one of my all time favorite books. I think everyone should read it 2mo
Chrissyreadit @ErinSueMreads I completely agree. 2mo

I‘m impressed with the connection of the cards- the past actions of disharmony in our laws, actions against peoples rights, autonomy, ignorance of disease, not loving each other or respecting love (of lovers , families) all of this has led up to the present feeling of conflict and anxiety.

#tarottakeover so interesting that the nine of swords was pulled- I interpreted it as representative of a collective fear and anxiety that is technically very appropriate in these times. So I offer Teo books that accept these emotions and encourage us to live with them and move into a safe space as well. Thank you @ErinSueMreads for being our host and guide in this activity.

ErinSueMreads Oh man I love love love your take on this and your reassuring book choice! 2mo
ErinSueMreads And you are so welcome. I'm so glad you are enjoying it. I always have so much fun doing these 2mo

Filling out my Ritual Life Planner, (a special thank you to @Mitch ) it has made me realize 2 things, many of my family traditions were lost with my illness, and my kids are now grown so I am beginning anew- with 2 exceptions Wassail on Yule and bayberry candles burned on the new year. All of my favorite things are seasonal so I will be mindful of maintaining them around the Equinoxes- it just feels right.

AmyG This is lovely…rituals. 2mo
