#ShareTheLitsyLove

And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie

A group of people are invited to a get together at a secluded island resort. Then the guests start getting murdered one by one. Pretty lousy party if you ask me!

Thank you @Geeklet for sharing the “Badly explain your favorite book” theme, I love this! 😂

Geeklet That does sound like a bad party, lol. 4d
Leftcoastzen 😂👍 4d
ValerieAndBooks Lol I knew exactly which book you were talking about before looking to see what the tag was 👏! 4d

CrowCAH A girl sees a guy at a dance party. He‘s awfully boring-no dancer. They meet again at his aunt‘s small house, only a piano for entertainment. An intimidating marriage proposal happens; the lady refuses. Third time they run into each other in the woods; they have a long discourse on the merits of Pride and Prejudice. 🤣 4d
Meaw_catlady I love that book!!! Was my fave movie forever as a kid ! 4d
DaveGreen7777 @Geeklet 😂🤣😂 4d
DaveGreen7777 @ValerieAndBooks Ha Ha, I must have done a better job describing it than I thought! 😂 4d

The Silmarillion | J.R.R. Tolkien
post image

Heavy metal band “Blind Guardian” is one of my favorite bands to play in the background while reading fantasy novels! With their epic orchestrations, their music almost sounds like a movie score, and several of their songs are even based on books like the Wheel of Time and Lord of the Rings series. Their “Nightfall in Middle Earth” album is based entirely on Tolkien‘s The Silmarillion!

When I listen to Tolkien Metal, so do the neighbors! 😎🤘🎸🎶

Geeklet Some people listen to loud angry metal to get pumped, I listen to The Bard‘s Song. ❤️ 6d
Katerina Oh wow, that's a blast from the past :D
6d
DaveGreen7777 @Geeklet I love The Bard‘s Song! 😀 But my favorite by them will probably always be “And Then There Was Silence!” 6d

DaveGreen7777 @BethM Blind Guardian is one of those bands I really wish more people listened to. I hope you enjoy them! 😀 5d
DaveGreen7777 There is one certain way for me to achieve coolness... I just ask myself, “What would @Meaw_catlady do in this situation”, and then I do that! 😎🖖 5d

Thank you for starting our week with this great #ManicMonday @JoScho ☎️

📖 - “The Call of the Wild” by Jack London (Bit of a stretch, I know, but I couldn‘t think of any books about phones, so I went with “call”! 😜)
📽 - “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial”
🎶 - “867-5309/Jenny” by Tommy Tutone

Special thank you to wonderful Litten @Meaw_catlady for the book she sent me for my birthday! 😀

I love books that star strong female characters, so between that and my love for science fiction (including Star Trek and Star Wars... contrary to what some message boards say, you are allowed to like both franchises), this looks like a perfect read for me! Thank you, Rachel! Your generosity and thoughtfulness made my birthday even more special! 😊

Meaw_catlady You are very welcome!! Hope your bday week was epic! ☺️ 1w

The wonderful @Meaw_catlady is having a giveaway to celebrate her 7,777 Litfluence! Her posts are always so much fun to read, I‘m very happy to be one her followers! 😊

1. Dogs! No dimension without dogs is worth living in! 🐶
2. Focus more on my writing. I like my job, but sometimes wish I had pursued writing more ambitiously earlier on instead of building an accounting career.
3. I‘d never want to change my creativity, I love creating stories.

Meaw_catlady I feel that way about cats!! Thanks so much for being one of my followers and not only that a friend 🤗 good answers ! Creativity is really great! I hope to one day read one of your stories if you would let me ! You‘re entered ! 🖖 2w

Meaw_catlady Awesome I will check it out! Thanks! 2w
Buechersuechtling @DaveGreen7777 You can‘t know how thankful I am for your answer to question 2. I also would definitely route for a different professional field since all started well but then somehow all went downhill. 🤷🏽‍♀️ At least that‘s what it feels like. It‘s so sad but I also try not to lose hope that it will get better because usually I am very enthusiastic once I saw how the wind blows … (Which sounds badly opportunistic but isn‘t meant that way.) 2w

Could everyone please help welcome my good friend @Mariah_Roze to Litsy? Mariah is such a kind, compassionate person who has dedicated so much of her life to helping others, and she even created the “Diversity in All Forms” group on Goodreads. I actually read a great number of diverse books thanks to Mariah.

Please help roll out the @LitsyWelcomeWagon for Mariah, I‘m sure she‘ll be a wonderful addition to the Litsy family! 😊

What‘s better than great books to read? Great friends to talk about books with! 😊

My birthday isn‘t actually until the 17th, but @Branwen was too excited to wait, she sent me my birthday book haul today!

In addition to the King family being represented here, she got me one by George R R Martin as well. I think there‘s even a TV show based on GRRM‘s books, but I‘m not sure... it‘s not like anyone‘s been talking about the show lately! 😂

Suet624 That's quite the haul! Congrats!

🍿 “Madagascar” (Okay, I really thought of Lion King first, but since I‘m guessing at least 99% of people will pick that one, I went with my second choice! 😂)

🎶 “Lyin‘ Eyes” by The Eagles

1. Fantasy (both high fantasy and urban) and science fiction.
2. Mystery.
3. Romance, nonfiction.
4. Urban fantasy.
5. “The Devil in the White City”. Read this for a book club and liked it much more than I expected.

Thanks for the #HelloThursday, @wanderinglynn 😊

1. When I was younger I could retain dreams more, now, not so much. 😴

2. I love dogs and I love mysteries, so I‘ll go with Scooby-Doo!

3. Harry Dresden, Wizard for hire from the tagged book. He‘s such a wise-ass, I‘d get along great with him.

4. Roshar from the Stormlight Archives. Between the unique fashions and the sprites inhabiting the world, I think it would be fascinating.

5. Will do!

4️⃣ Today I‘ll tag the wonderful @Underqueen 😀

And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie
post image

#ReadAlikeThatGotAway
This is a brilliant question posed by the wonderful @monalyisha Is there a book that made such an impact, you wish you could read it again for the first time? For me, it‘s “And Then There Were None”. As a kid, I loved children‘s mysteries like the Hardy Boys, but nothing prepared me for the first time I tried Agatha Christie. Haunting, spellbinding and mind boggling, this book set me on a course to be a bibliophile for life!

Hestapleton This book made me the thriller junkie I am! 2mo
DaveGreen7777 @Hestapleton I can totally understand why, this book is unforgettable! 😱 2mo
RainyDayReading I have been trying to find a book that captures the feel of And Then There Were None for years!! I‘ve found books with pieces, but not fully what I‘ve been hunting for. But anything compared to And Then There Were None I will read in a heartbeat. 2mo

I‘ve always considered myself a child of the 80s, but when I went looking for a picture to participate in the #90sSpringFling, I realized what an important decade the 90s was for me! I graduated both high school and college in the 90s, and this picture is me “hard at work” at my first major job after college, where I worked for the rest of the decade.

@Branwen since you saw the movie, you‘ll appreciate the book I tagged for the 90s reference! 😁

Sometimes it‘s the little details that make me smile! 😁

The symbols at the beginning of a chapter in The Stormlight Archive denote which character‘s POV that chapter will be in. But it wasn‘t until I was pretty far into the series that I noticed that for the flashback chapters, the colors of the symbol are inverted! To the left is Shallan‘s normal symbol, to the right is her flashback symbol!

There‘s always something new to discover in a book!

Branwen YAAAASSSSS! Sanderson is such a freaking genius! 😍💕 2mo

Buechersuechtling That‘s a really cool and clever idea for plot-/story-related illustrations in books. 🥰 2mo
DaveGreen7777 @Buechersuechtling I love when books use illustrations like that! The Wheel of Time series had great chapter symbols too! 😀 2mo
Buechersuechtling @DaveGreen7777 Will you hush⁉️🤫 Don‘t mention (too many) titles of books series in my presence 😉 because I – I don‘t know why – tend to start them and then somehow forget to continue them. And then suddenly I have a bad conscience and feel like I need to be running around in circles, screaming because I don‘t get anything done. So, no, no more series for me (at the moment). Pleeeze‼️😂 2mo
DaveGreen7777 @Buechersuechtling HA HA! Fair enough! I‘m running out of room in my house due to all the books there that I still haven‘t even read, so I completely understand where you‘re coming from! 😁 2mo
Buechersuechtling @DaveGreen7777 Supplement: the audiobook I am currently listening to during my commute it is 🥁 part of a series. It‘s the fourth part – but to be honest I really didn‘t know that until I started listening. But guess what I now need to urgently do❓ Correct, read/listen to all the other parts published. There you see what series do to me. 😂 2mo
DaveGreen7777 I can totally relate, @Buechersuechtling! I‘ve been known to buy multiple books in a series before I even begin reading the first book! 😂🙈 2mo

Little tidbit of information about me... I LOVE maps in books! 😀

My appreciation with maps began with R.A. Salvatore‘s “The Crimson Shadow” series. As the protagonists travelled a linear path throughout the story, I would pinpoint where they were on the map as I read along, it made me feel more connected to the book‘s world. Does anybody else follow along on book‘s maps as well?

Special thank you to @Branwen for the beautiful homemade bookmark!

BookNAround I love maps. Like an unopened book, they contain such possibilities. 2mo
DaveGreen7777 Very well said, @BookNAround 😀 2mo
Leniverse Absolutely. Ever since the Hobbit when I was quite young. I‘m a bit disappointed every time a book doesn‘t contain a map! 2mo

Branwen YES! I am obsessed with maps in fantasy books! Every time I crack open a new book and see a map it makes me smile! 😄💕📚 Also, you're welcome! I'm so glad you like them! Let me know if you ever need more, I made a ton of them! 😁 2mo
DaveGreen7777 @Leniverse I agree! Whenever I pick up a fantasy novel, one of the first things I look for is a map! 🗺 2mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen Glad to know I‘m not alone in this, Becky! 😁 Of course, following along on maps are a little tricker in some series like the one we‘re currently buddy reading, where Oathgates and alternate dimensions like Shadesmar are involved! 😉 2mo

I saw “Captain Marvel” this weekend and absolutely loved it! Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson had brilliant chemistry together as a buddy cop team.

I haven‘t keep up with superhero comics in the last few years, but this movie convinced me I have to read Kelly Sue DeConnick‘s “Captain Marvel” books, as her stories were apparently a big influence. The “Captain Marvel” movie has made me a True Believer! 😀

Just... one more chapter!

We‘ve all done this, right?! It‘s getting later and later, the need for sleep is getting overwhelming, but we try to keep reading anyway! Even though we‘re so tired, we probably won‘t even remember what we just read by tomorrow.

Think how much more reading we could get done if it wasn‘t for that pesky need for sleep! 😴 Maybe if I turn on the audiobook version as I go to bed, I can still retain some of the story? 🤪
