I had a wonderful time. I‘ve been to Venice so many times and will never tire of such a wonderful place.

Cinfhen So nice to “hear” from you ❤️Family first....ALWAYS 😘 5y
DeborahSmall @Cinfhen thank you 😘 I may be able to write a book this summer with all the drama if the last 2 years 😂😂would be under tragicom drama genre!! 5y

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!! 6y
LeahBergen This looks gorgeous. I want to join you! 😆 6y
TrishB Looks very cosy ❤️ I‘ve just finished number 5 with Charlie Parker, so have a while to savour the series. 6y
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! 6y
Cinfhen Just checking in to wish you a Happy 2019❤️Hope this new year brings you peace & comfort 😘 6y

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 ❤️📚🌶🇮🇳🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Reading this at the moment and loving it 💕📚

LeahBergen This sounds delightfully old-fashioned. Is it? 6y
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 6y

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! 😍 6y
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 😘 6y

Cinfhen How‘s the book?? I‘ve just purchased today. #ImpulseBuy 6y
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) 6y
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 6y
DeborahSmall @Cinfhen thanks Cindy, it‘s been an incredibly tough 6 months and why I‘ve been so ‘absent‘. But of course I‘ve had so much love and support from my Litsy family. Very lucky to have you all 💕 6y

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)

‘A denunciation of Donald Trump‘ The Scotsman daily newspaper 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿💙

vivastory He's the monster that Fox news & the far right have been creating for years. Utterly disgraceful. 6y
julesG 😵👏 6y
laurieluna I still sometimes pinch myself, hoping the fact he's a world leader is all some terrible dream and I'll wake up soon...😧 6y
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) 6y
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. 6y
EadieB @toofondofbooks Glad that you spoke up too. Hateful information that we don‘t need on Litsy! 6y
toofondofbooks @EadieB I know. I wish we would keep the political stuff off Litsy. This is where I want to escape all that. 🙄 6y
EadieB 👍 6y
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) 6y
LeahBergen 👍🏻 It‘s interesting to read an article with a non- North American viewpoint. 6y
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) 6y
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 6y
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. 6y
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) 6y
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. 6y
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”. 6y
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. 6y
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. 6y
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) 6y
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. 6y
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. 6y
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. 6y
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. 6y
DGRachel @EadieB We will have to agree to disagree. 6y
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 6y
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. 6y
Cathythoughts Great article. The more denunciation- the better. 6y
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. 🖤👏 6y

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. 6y
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!! 😂 6y
LeahBergen Your answer to # 1! 😂😂😂 6y

My Reading Life | Pat Conroy
post image

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 😍😍 6y
TrishB Lovely 💕 6y
Chrissyreadit Those bookmarks are so nice! Who is the author of The Changeling? I want to look up the book! Nice @LeahBergen ! 6y

Mdargusch So nice! 6y
DeborahSmall @Chrissyreadit it‘s by Joy Williams and this is the 40th anniversary edition. It looks fantastic 6y
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. 😂🤣 6y
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! 6y
LeahBergen @DeborahSmall Oh no! 😂😂😂 Did you kill him?? 😂😂 6y
DeborahSmall @LeahBergen almost 😂😂 he left to go stay with his girlfriend x😂😂 6y

DeborahSmall @TrishB I took a close up and sent it to loads of people. Had coffee out this morning but will be my mug for tomorrow. Just love it. Sophie thinks it‘s hilarious and now coming up with puns. Most recent a mug with a chicken saying ‘cluck off I‘m reading‘ 😂 you‘ve inspired greatness 6y
TrishB 😂😂 brilliant! The daft things are the best! 6y
Cathythoughts I loved Woman in The Window... it‘s a really good thriller 👍🏻😳 6y
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💕 6y

“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! 6y
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 💕 6y
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) 6y

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 💕 6y
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! 6y
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. 6y
JanuarieTimewalker13 @DeborahSmall did you happen to see the cover of book 2? Beautiful also!! 6y
JanuarieTimewalker13 @DeborahSmall why wouldn‘t an author go to Ireland? If I were an author I would!! 6y
DeborahSmall @JanuarieTimewalker13 it looks beautiful with the orange sprayed edges. Hopefully goldsboro do another signed edition 6y
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!! 6y
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? 6y
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) 6y
JanuarieTimewalker13 I just checked release date here in the States...18October18 6y
DeborahSmall @JanuarieTimewalker13 think ours is October 2nd 6y
