I‘m loving Charlie Parker this month. Only one book left then I have to wait until April for his next one. That‘s why I take long breaks between his books. Definitely my favourite thriller author. And thank you @ScorpioBookDreams for the gin ‘taster‘ and my favourite chocolate selections from Hotel Chocolat 😍 I‘m having a very relaxing night ❤️📚🍫

Guildedearlobe Love Charlie Parker!! 6mo
LeahBergen This looks gorgeous. I want to join you! 😆 6mo
TrishB Looks very cosy ❤️ I‘ve just finished number 5 with Charlie Parker, so have a while to savour the series. 6mo
DeborahSmall @LeahBergen I‘d love you to join me! You too @TrishB 💕 I‘m almost finished this. Think I‘ll have a break before the next one though. @Guildedearlobe definitely a favourite literary choice of mine! 6mo

I absolutely loved this. Couldn‘t put it down. Only planned on reading the first few pages as I‘m in the middle of another. But all the mentions of my beloved Glasgow pulled me in and his beautiful descriptions of India mesmerised me and didn‘t let go until the last page. Such an interesting read ❤️📚🌶🇮🇳🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

LeahBergen This sounds delightfully old-fashioned. Is it? 7mo
DeborahSmall @LeahBergen totally. A very ‘old English‘ vibe with it being just post WW2 The lion, witch and wardrobe and Peter Pan vibes too. I just finished a book I read in one sitting but halfway through this and ready to get stuck back in. Xx 7mo

This has been the book to get me out of my reading slump.
So it‘s getting very cold here and I think the fire will be getting lit this week. Although it‘s cosy I‘ll miss having fresh flowers in my living room 💐

LeahBergen So pretty! 😍 7mo
DeborahSmall @LeahBergen I think you‘d love John Connolly. His first couple of books are pretty graphic. But I find his prose almost lyrical. Series gets better as the characters develop. I can send you the first in paperback if you‘d like to try him 😘 7mo

Cinfhen How‘s the book?? I‘ve just purchased today. #ImpulseBuy 7mo
DeborahSmall @Cinfhen I got half way through and although loving it I had to change to thriller, normally I‘d have flew through it but I‘ve so much going on with family that my mind was going elsewhere. But I‘ll go back to it once I finish a couple of books. This is my first reading slump ever. I‘d say from age of 10 I‘ve read 1 book a week at least x (edited) 7mo
Cinfhen Sorry you are going through family stuff 😥sometimes even the best books cant take our minds away from the worry. Hope you find peace & resolution soon. At least thrillers are helping xx 7mo

1. Anything secret seven or famous five. Also the commando comics
2. Both. Id love someone to make me a pecan pie in US and fly it straight to me. That is my dream.
3. Love movies and binge watching crime tv shows and also amazing shit like Riverdale, it‘s so bad it‘s genius. And cross stitch
4. Spain or Italy although I‘m extremely homesick right now (for Scotland)

julesG 😵👏 11mo
laurenbescoby I still sometimes pinch myself, hoping the fact he's a world leader is all some terrible dream and I'll wake up soon...😧 11mo
EadieB This is really not a forum to discuss politics. As there are plenty of reasons not to like Hillary and Obama. We need to respect others opinions too. I‘m sure there are a lot of deplorables that feel differently about Trump and the wonderful job he is doing for our economy. (edited) 11mo
toofondofbooks I'm sorry, I usually try to scroll past political opinion type posts, but article this is mostly false information. Most Americans are proud of our President and what he is doing for our country. This is just regurgitating what the left wants people to believe. 11mo
EadieB @toofondofbooks Glad that you spoke up too. Hateful information that we don‘t need on Litsy! 11mo
toofondofbooks @EadieB I know. I wish we would keep the political stuff off Litsy. This is where I want to escape all that. 🙄 11mo
EadieB 👍 11mo
Reggie Meh, people can unfollow if they dislike the post. I‘m just shocked when I see people who drink the Koolaid. They left off the part about the man who has so little empathy or humanity he thought it was a good policy to rip children away from their families at the border, negatively affecting these kids for the rest of their lives in ways none of us will ever know. I guess if that‘s the president you‘re proud of, whatever. (edited) 11mo
LeahBergen 👍🏻 It‘s interesting to read an article with a non- North American viewpoint. 11mo
EadieB @Reggie That‘s a law that was put into place to stop child trafficking and is now being used to make Trump look bad. The democrats had a chance to change it but never did and this practice has been going on since 2008. (edited) 11mo
DeborahSmall @Sorceryandswords @DGRachel @CaitlynR @vivastory @miralunasbooknook @julesG @EadieB @toofondofbooks @Reggie @LeahBergen I think this short article is a very accurate summarisation of the type of man Trump is. Feel free to unfollow me if this offends you 11mo
toofondofbooks @DeborahSmall I don't unfollow people bc we have differing opinions. I just wanted to point out that the majority of Americans are happy with our president. This article is full of the same things the left has been shouting for 2 years and it is simply not true. I encourage people to look at the facts and stop believing the media and especially celebrities bc they are clueless. 11mo
EadieB @DeborahSmall You are entitled to your opinion but I voted for the man who will make America a better place to live with a booming economy. What he has done in his private life has nothing to do with what he is now doing as president. President Clinton does not a have a clean slate either but he was a great president. President Trump will go down in history as the best president America ever had. I am very proud of his accomplishments. (edited) 11mo
toofondofbooks @Reggie this is one of the most misreported things. This is a law that has been in place for years. It is a crime to enter our country illegally just as it is for most countries in the world. Also what the news reports about how this separation takes place is completely false. There are no kids in cages. Those are faked photos. 11mo
DGRachel @DeborahSmall I agree with you. I would also like to point out that his approval rating is less than 50%, so the comment that the majority of Americans are happy with our president is incorrect. @LeahBergen Yes, I appreciate seeing how other countries view him. It breaks my heart, knowing that my fellow countrymen voted this monster into office, but at least other countries aren‘t afraid to yell “the emperor is naked”. 11mo
toofondofbooks I'm gonna leave this convo now bc it always goes the same way. The right man is in the office. I lived with Obama for 8 years but I never wished he would fail. We should all support our President. 11mo
vivastory Fact 1) Trump denied that our first African American president was an American. Fact 2) Trump said that there were "many fine people on both sides" following a white supremacist rally where a counter protester was murdered. Fact 3) Trump said that Judge Curiel was incapable of impartiality due to because he was Mexican. These are statements made by our current president. You can claim Trump is or is not xyz. His racism is an objective fact. 11mo
EadieB @DGRachel The Americans that are happy with Trump are not as vocal as they love what Trump is doing. So why complain? The proof will be when he gets re-elected as I have no doubt that he will get another term. He is doing a fantastic job and who cares what other countries think. All that fake news will make the complainers look like fools when the voters speak again and re-elect a great president who puts America first! (edited) 11mo
EadieB @vivastory Every candidate has things about them that people don‘t like. The voters are the ones who choose the best candidate for them so I suggest to get registered if you are not and vote. 11mo
vivastory @EadieB I am registered & I did vote. But there are certain things, ie racism, that seem to me to be much more egregious. Not all flaws are equal. 11mo
EadieB @vivastory Well that‘s your opinion. You never know what is truly in a person‘s heart when his words are always misconstrued. He has been attacked viciously more than any other president and still holds his head high and is courageously working for the American people. 11mo
vivastory @EadieB None of what I stated was "misconstrued." He's on record (video) as saying all 3 of those statements. Racist statements (ie denying for years that our nation's first African American president wasn't American) aren't a matter of opinion. They're an objective truth. 11mo
DGRachel @EadieB We will have to agree to disagree. 11mo
EadieB @vivastory Well there are more Spanish and black people back to work now then before he was elected so I think he is working for all the people no matter their color or heritage. I think in regards to Obama‘s birth certificate Trump just wanted to make sure he was an American because Obama‘s birth certificate was questionable. We differ in our opinions but that‘s why there are always others to vote for. I wasn‘t happy during the Obama years either 11mo
julesG As a European I'd like to say, the renowned newspapers over here check their facts, in most cases more than once, before they publish their stories. @DeborahSmall - I'm not going to unfollow you, both the article and the ensuing discussion are interesting. 11mo
Cathythoughts Great article. The more denunciation- the better. 11mo
Sophoclessweetheart I‘m not at all offended Deborah. I‘m not sure where I left the impression I might be 🤔 It‘s an interesting article. 🖤👏 11mo

TrishB None needed 😁 I would feel the same 😂 but I don‘t think you need to be worrying! I read through the boring ones too!! 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Thanks for playing along! I pick my teams like that sometimes, although I‘m more of an American football fan than a World Cup fan. 12mo
arlenefinnigan 😂 12mo
ScorpioBookDreams Couldn‘t care less about football so doesn‘t bother me! 😂😂 Now if you‘d said something about rugby or cricket then my dad would have had something to say!! 😂 12mo

My Reading Life | Pat Conroy

Blown away as usual by the generosity and thoughtfulness of @LeahBergen ! Pat Conroy is in my top 5 favourite authors, never did I think I‘d have a signed book by him until this morning! 🤩 The Changeling looks wonderful too. The bookmarks as usual are great and I‘ve already opened one bag of sweets (100% the best sweets ever)
Thank you so much dear friend 😘😘

vkois88 The Poe bookmark 😍😍 13mo
TrishB Lovely 💕 13mo
Chrissyreadit Those bookmarks are so nice! Who is the author of The Changeling? I want to look up the book! Nice @LeahBergen ! 13mo

Mdargusch So nice! 13mo
DeborahSmall @Chrissyreadit it‘s by Joy Williams and this is the 40th anniversary edition. It looks fantastic 13mo
LeahBergen Wow! That got there quickly. I‘m so glad you like the Conroy! And put down that bag of sweets before your mouth starts bleeding. 😂🤣 13mo
DeborahSmall @LeahBergen you did say hide the sweets. Just 2 minutes ago I go into Sam‘s room to tell him to keep the noise down. And I see my precious fucking wrappers. So I asked did he at least take the bag that was almost empty, but no the little bollocks took a full bag. But the cheekiest part?....The bag he took wasn‘t yet open so he grabbed a few from my open bag and took a full bag. The fucking temerity astounds me! 13mo
LeahBergen @DeborahSmall Oh no! 😂😂😂 Did you kill him?? 😂😂 13mo
DeborahSmall @LeahBergen almost 😂😂 he left to go stay with his girlfriend x😂😂 13mo

TrishB 😂😂 brilliant! The daft things are the best! 13mo
Cathythoughts I loved Woman in The Window... it‘s a really good thriller 👍🏻😳 13mo
DeborahSmall @Cathythoughts my sister has been begging me to read it but I kept forgetting to buy it! She spotted it yesterday so I‘ll be tortured. In the mood for few thrillers as I‘ve read so much fantasy lately💕 13mo

“I turned my nightmares into fireflies and caught them in a jar”

Why did I wait so long to read this? One of the best YA fantasy novels I‘ve read. A beautiful book and I‘m so excited for a The Muse of Nightmares coming in October 💙📚

EchoLogical Isn't it amazing?! Laini Taylor is the best! 13mo
DeborahSmall @EchoLogical so so good!! I loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone too. Her style of writing is just lyrical and beautiful. I truly savoured every word 💕 13mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 I‘ve had it forever but still haven‘t read it. I‘m so coveting your blue edges!! I thought I was getting the blue edges but BD sent white. I don‘t think I‘ll ever get over that. Lol (edited) 13mo

DeborahSmall @JanuarieTimewalker13 I ordered this from goldsboro. I‘ve had it over a year and can‘t believe I‘ve only just read it. I also have US edition and read that one as I didn‘t trust myself with this. Honestly a fantastic book. I was worried it was overrated but not at all 💕 13mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @DeborahSmall Hahahaha!! I think that‘s what is stopping me from reading it!! I have it on display on its own floating shelf. Maybe I should get it out of the library and read it! I love that you purchased 2! 13mo
DeborahSmall @JanuarieTimewalker13 I got my US copy from @elkeo so was lucky as I‘d have waited for paperback otherwise. I‘m hoping she‘s coming to uk this year, Scotland would be good as no chance of Ireland , I‘d love to get my US edition signed too and just have one more needing signed as others already are. 13mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @DeborahSmall did you happen to see the cover of book 2? Beautiful also!! 13mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @DeborahSmall why wouldn‘t an author go to Ireland? If I were an author I would!! 13mo
DeborahSmall @JanuarieTimewalker13 it looks beautiful with the orange sprayed edges. Hopefully goldsboro do another signed edition 13mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @DeborahSmall Hold On!!! You guys are getting orange sprayed edges? Ours is Purple and Silver! Hmmm. I wish I had bilocation skills....I would go book shopping all over the UK! Just another great thing about living on this beautiful planet!! Different beautiful covers!! 13mo
DeborahSmall @JanuarieTimewalker13 purple and silver!!! Probably my favourite colour combo. I‘m definitely going to have to get a copy. Is it available in B&N with sprayed edges? 13mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @DeborahSmall No clue. I saw it on Amazon and I couldn‘t see edges. It it has sprayed edges, I may have to marry it. Lol (edited) 13mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 I just checked release date here in the States...18October18 13mo
DeborahSmall @JanuarieTimewalker13 think ours is October 2nd 13mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Oh wow!! 13mo
