Thank you for this #WondrousWednesday @Eggs and thank you for the tag @TheSpineView 😀

❄️ I‘m spending the day at my sister‘s. Last year my niece had a job where she had to work holidays, so we‘re happy she can join us on Christmas this year!

❄️ Brandon Sanderson, Gail Simone, Christopher Moore.

❄️ “A Chair of Anxious Fish”! Not exactly “A Game of Thrones” (or even “A Feast of Crows”), but I‘ll take it! 😅🤣

RaeLovesToRead Mine would be "A glass of sh*t and biscuits". Coming soon to a theatre near you ? Sorry you feel anxious. Sending mellow vibes ???? 8h
Eggs Thanks for playing Dave - love your book title❣️ 8h
TheSpineView You're welcome! BTW, I choose Sanderson also! Great minds! 6h

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView 😊

1️⃣ Truth be told, I‘m happy to visit any bookstore! But “The Last Bookstore” in Los Angeles sounds especially fascinating with its half-archway made out of used books… I‘d probably try to make out every book title before passing through! 🤓

2️⃣ I do sometimes bring a list with me when I go to a bookstore.. but I don‘t think I‘ve ever left a bookstore with ONLY items from the list I brought! 🙈

vivastory Last Bookstore looks incredible 📚📚📚 1mo
DaveGreen7777 @vivastory Agreed! 👍 1mo
Nute Same here, Dave. Any bookstore, anyplace!🤗 1mo

Branwen That bookstore sounds incredible! 😲❤ 1mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen Right?! Hopefully they didn‘t use any of the old Wheel of Time covers, it would totally ruin the archway! 😂🤣 1mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 OMGGGGG! 😝😝 1mo
Amiable I was literally at The Last Bookstore in LA just 3 weeks ago! It is just as incredible in person as it looks online. 1mo
TheSpineView I doubt that are many Littens who could go into a bookstore and come out with ONLY the books on their list!😆 Thanks for playing! 1mo
DaveGreen7777 @Amiable That‘s so cool that you were there! I hope to visit The Last Bookstore one day soon! 😀 1mo
DaveGreen7777 @TheSpineView HA HA, I‘m noticing a common theme of “not sticking just to the list” on this Two4Tuesday! 😂🤣 1mo

Thank you for this #WondrousWednesday @Eggs and thank you for the tag @DarkMina 😌

1️⃣ I haven‘t read them in a long time, but anytime someone mentions Nancy Drew or the Hardy Boys, it instantly takes me back to all the kid mysteries I read as a child. I remember especially loving the tagged book as it had a supernatural slant and a ghost on the cover! 👻

2️⃣ Rainy days! 🌨

3️⃣ I‘m grateful for Litsy & friends, and especially Litsy friends! 🤗

“He stepped softly through the library. Honorspren liked their books, judging by the extensive collection—but he rarely saw them in here. They seemed to enjoy owning the books, treating them like relics to be hoarded.”

Hoarding books but not getting around to reading them? Apparently if I were a creature from a fantasy novel, I‘d be an Honorspren! 🤦🏻‍♂️

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView and for the tag @Branwen 😀

1. I‘d gladly read about both witches and wizards! 🧙‍♀️🧙‍♂️

2. I‘m cheating a bit and instead of a book, I‘m going with my favorite series… Harry Dresden! Sure, most people would pick that “other” Harry‘s series, but the tagged book was my first foray into urban fantasy, and I loved reading about a snarky wizard interacting with all kinds of paranormal creatures! 👻🧛‍♀️

TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 🖤🧙‍♀️🧙‍♂️ 2mo
RaeLovesToRead I've seen a few people pick Harry Dresden for this and until today I'd never heard of him... another one to look into maybe? 2mo

Hi, everybody! 👋

I had to take some time off to care for my father in his final days and to grieve afterwards, but I‘m feeling more like myself now, so I‘m planning to be more active again on Litsy. I‘ve missed you all! 😊 Looking forward to chatting with you all again! 😀📚

Thank you so much to all you wonderful Littens for the support you‘ve sent my way while my father was battling cancer. Unfortunately, we lost him on Thursday.
Dad, you were a wonderful father and a wonderful friend. We were so afraid we were going to lose you back in 2015 when you fought cancer the first time, and I am so grateful for that extra time we got together. I will always cherish my memories of you.
I love you, Dad, and I always will! ❤️

Buechersuechtling I‘m no native English speaker so I hope for your forbearance in case my words are wooden. But I wanted to reach out and let you know that I feel you. Last Thursday, it was 6 months ago that I lost my own father and I never would have thought it would be such a deep mark for a “before” and a “after” in my life because I never thought we were as close as we obviously have been. I‘m here if you wish to talk. And I wish you support. (1/2) 3mo
mrp27 My deepest condolences to you and your family. 3mo
Buechersuechtling Support from friends and neighbours … and maybe from people being strangers to you but having not been strangers to your dad. I deeply wish you have someone by your side whenever things get rough these days so that the way until you reach the point where you can recognise and appreciate warm memories and anecdotes will not be too lonesome and painful. Sending you my sympathy and your family my commiseration. All of you are in my thoughts. (2/2) 3mo

I wanted to let you all know why I‘ve been inactive. My father was hospitalized after a fall last week, and now it looks like he will be battling cancer a third time. 😢 He has a biopsy scheduled for tomorrow, and we are also looking for short term rehab for him to regain his strength. Any prayers, healing energy, and positive vibes you could send him for a full recovery and another successful battle against cancer would be greatly appreciated! 🙏

1️⃣ Not sure if this counts as a fairy tale, but I always loved “The Starfish Story”. If that doesn‘t count, I‘ll go with “The Princess and The Pea”. It‘s a fun absurd story and it also inspired the hilarious musical “Once Upon a Mattress”!

2️⃣ Once Upon a Time the dogs were brought into the house and they were all good! (Awww, sounds like a happy tale! 🐶)

RaeLovesToRead I love murder mysteries! Have you read The Murder of Roger Ackroyd? I scored a bit of an own goal when I googled And Then There Were None (the film) a month or so ago and under "People also ask..." there was "Why did [NAME REDACTED] kill everyone?" ... Thanks Google, you spoilery git ??? 5mo
RaeLovesToRead I've just marked my previous comment as spoiler because (thinking idly), it occurred to me that [NAME REDACTED] killing "everyone" might actually mean "everyone" [!!!!!!] making it EVEN MORE SPOILERY than I initially thought. 5mo
DaveGreen7777 @RaeLovesToRead In all fairness to you, that spoiler about killing everyone is really right there in the title, so I think you‘re okay! 😉 I have a copy of “Roger Ackroyd” but I haven‘t read it yet! 😩 5mo

1️⃣ Hmmm…🤔 When I think of chunksters, I automatically think of the Wheel of Time series, so since the “shortest” book in the main series is around 700 pages long, I‘ll say 700 is the magic number of pages that makes a book a chunkster.📖

2️⃣ I prefer to read one, mainly because if the audiobook narrator isn‘t very good, it can make for a long listen! 😴

Also, tagging the largest book I‘ve read!

TheSpineView You're welcome and Thanks for playing! 🤩🌞📖😊 5mo
DaveGreen7777 @TheSpineView 😀😀😀 5mo
The_Penniless_Author Funny you mention that, I'm reading the Wheel of Time books right now, and even though I gave "500 pages" as my answer to question 1, that number feels a lot less chunky at the moment. ? Especially since I'm on book 4, which is a thousand pages (a "double chunkster"?) 5mo
DaveGreen7777 @The_Penniless_Author HA HA, that‘s how I feel about Brandon Sanderson right now! All his Stormlight Archive books are double chunksters! 😱 5mo

1️⃣ Tagged! Star Wars was a big part of my childhood, I even had SW toys and action figures. When this book came out, it featured the classic characters and portrayed them so authenticity, I felt like I was a kid in the theatre waiting for the Star Wars theme to start playing!

2️⃣ No preference, I‘ll read stories that take place in any country, real or imaginary!

Thank you for this #ThoughtfulThursday @MoonWitch94 and thank you for the tag @Branwen 😀

1️⃣ “That” death from “Mistborn: The Final Empire”. If you read the book, you know the one I mean! 😢

2️⃣ “The Inheritance” by Tom Savage. I have a problem with twist endings that make no sense or don‘t hold up under scrutiny, but this was a twist ending done right! It blew me away, and it made perfect sense when I looked back at the story. 😱

3️⃣ Done! 😁

Branwen YES! YES TO NUMBER 1! 😭😭😭😭😢 I TOTALLY agree! 8mo

1. Not at the exact same time, but for long books (like the tagged one), sometimes I‘ll split them up, listen to some chapters on audiobook while I‘m driving and read some chapters later.

2. I have a fairly long commute to work so listening to audiobooks can really make the trip go by quickly. Sometimes I hope for traffic jams just so I can get another chapter in! 😁

#OppositeDay #Light

Some people prefer light reading, but not me! I love heavy books that tackle heavy topics. Although there is one problem... since I prefer books in the 1,000 page range, it doesn‘t do my back any favors trying to lug these tomes around with me! Ouch! 😣

Out of this pile, I‘m tagging the Stephen King book since his novels are usually the exact opposite of light, both in tone and in page count! 😳

#OppositeDay

For today‘s Opposite Day photo prompt of #First I‘m going with the last book in the Wheel of Time series! I‘m halfway through the series and I absolutely love the characters, so I have such mixed emotions about when I read the last book. While I really want to know how it all ends, once I‘ve finished the series, that means there will be no more books left starring these characters. I‘ll be heartbroken to say goodbye to all of them!🥺

LazyOwl Love the facial expression 😝 8mo

I‘ll always associate Epica‘s “The Quantum Enigma” song with the tagged book since I read listening to it while reading the climactic battle at the end of the novel! 🤘🎤🎸🎶

Thank you for this #SundayFunday @ozma.of.oz and thank you for the tag, @Branwen 😀

1. I‘ve read Dungeons and Dragons books, but I can‘t think of any books based on video games that I‘ve read. I keep meaning to read the tagged book, which is based on one of my favorite video games ever, Bioshock! 🎮

2. No, I think they‘re adaptations, like movie tie-ins are. 🎥

3. The world of “Red Dead Redemption I/II” would make for a fantastic novel! 🤠

ozma.of.oz My sister showed me the first two Bioshock games. They look amazing! Thanks for sharing! 9mo
TheLibrarian Bioshock games fascinate me. I played Infinite and only a small portion of the first one but they are beautiful. Now I need to force myself to play again and deal with the closer combat fighting. 9mo

Dalinar glowered at Shallan.
“What?” she said.
“He was never like this before you arrived,” Dalinar said.
“Stormfather help us,” Shallan said lightly, sitting beside Adolin. “A Kholin has learned to relax once in a while? Surely the moons will stop orbiting and the sun will come crashing down.”

I‘d laugh, except I have an even harder time relaxing than the Kholins do! The above meme is an accurate depiction of me trying to clear my mind! 🙈

2. Tagged! I wouldn‘t have minded the ending so much... except it was the same exact ending as one of his earlier books so it just felt lazy.

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView 😊

1. Iago from Othello. He is so detestable, ruining people‘s lives just because he can. Yet he is also so clever and Machiavellian, I find him fascinating to read about.

2. This is a toughie! Usually, I care more about the characters than the plot. Still there have been books where the plot was so good, I was fully invested even if the characters were a bit bland (“Children of Time” comes to mind).

TheSpineView I totally agree with you on Children of Time. Thanks for playing! 11mo

Rhythm of War | Brandon Sanderson
post image

Thank you for this #WondrousWednesday @Eggs and thank you for the tag @TheSpineView 😁

1️⃣ There will be a theme to both my answers, but I really admire Brandon Sanderson‘s mind, his ability to create such magical and intricate worlds and fill them with such deep and captivating characters!

2️⃣ Since I‘m a notoriously slow reader, my time will be dedicated to “Rhythm of War”! I‘m buddy reading this with @Branwen whose kindness I admire, too! 😊

TheSpineView You're welcome! I'm a big fan of Sanderson too! 12mo
Branwen Awwww, thank you my dear friend! 💕 And OMG YES! Sanderson truly is a genius! 12mo
Eggs Love your theme! I‘ve been seeing a lot of Sanderson on Litsy! Thanks for playing Dave❣️ 12mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen @Eggs Happy to help spread Sanderson appreciation! 😁 12mo

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView 😊

1️⃣ Most definitely! Since Thanksgiving will be somewhat minimized this year, I plan to use some of the extra time to read more of “Rhythm of War” this weekend! 😁

2️⃣ Usually the weekend after Thanksgiving. I am one of those “don‘t start promoting Christmas until Halloween and Thanksgiving are over” people! 😒

If you‘d like to play, consider yourself tagged! 😀

Branwen YASSSSSSSSS MORE RHYTHM OF WAR! 😁💕📚 12mo

Palom | L. L. McNeil
post image
Pickpick

4 out of 5 dragons for “Palom” by @l.l.mcneil 🐉🐉🐉🐉

L.L. McNeil has crafted a much different tale than the story that came before it. Instead of the citizens of Linaria, the world itself gets explored more this time. While I did miss the fast pace of the first novel, unexpected twists and fulfilling character arcs still made for a brilliant read.

You can find my full review on Goodreads here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2316005863

Branwen Excellent review! 😀👍💕📚 13mo
