A liked this thriller.Maybe the end was a clitché which I cannot mention without spoil the story. But it was a surprised for me at some point. I think what I liked more was the psychological dynamics between the characters, how some psychological terms were well managed like the concept of contratransference and the therapy sessions. I could imagine some of the art works described here I wish they would be real4⭐️debut novel?

#7Covers7Days #CoverCrush Thank you @julesG for invited me to participate in this activity! Between these few books, what will be the message, if any?🤔Most of my books are packed already but I still have some that I can show for this week.

mabell How was the Quiche mystery? A quiche sounds pretty good right now too 😂 2d
Gissy @mabell I'm reading it right now. I'm in the first pages, it is ok for now, funny with a lot of town gossips around who murdered Ed☺️ 2d
Avanders Hiya lady — just checking in on your #cozyswap package .. less than a week to open date! 👏🏽👏🏽 Have you sent yours? (Sorry if I missed it!) 🎃♥️ Also— good luck with your move!! 📦📦📦♥️ 2d
See All 7 Comments
Gissy @Avanders I have to pick up something in the post office that arrived yesterday. So I will be sending the package tomorrow or Thursday early in the day. But I send my packages priority mail so they will arrive in 2 days maybe by Saturday. 2d
Avanders Okay thanks for the update! 🎃♥️ (Hope what you‘re picking up is the cozyswap package for you! 😁😘) 2d
Gissy @Avanders What I hope is that my match likes what I chose for this swap. I love these swaps but get me nervous. I always try to know the person's tastes. What I can do is to send the first box today since I have to go to the post office to pick the rest of the items I bought in Society6 my favorite store. In each swap I will like to buy the same things for me but that is out of the question. Have you ever experienced that? 2d
Avanders I know — me too!! I am always so exited for them to open their packages but also always worry about whether I picked well!! Ooh Society6, fun! 👏🏽👏🏽 ok well just let me know and I‘ll mark it down once it‘s sent 😉 Lol yes!! I definitely get people things I like, so for sure experience wanting to buy myself the same things... alas, I can‘t afford that at this time! ♥️♥️ 2d

Thanks @DaveGreen7777 1.I try to work with my mind & breath rhythm when I feel overwhelmed.It could be any emotion, all are part of us.I like to take time alone to put myself together. Sometimes I run, watch a movie or stay in silence. 2. My best mantra: give time to time. Think that everything will pass, I will transcend the experience & I will learn something about it. Hard but worthy:learning to dance in the rain @mabell @Chrissyreadit

Meaw_catlady Great answers! Blessings to you ! 5d
Gissy Thank you @Meaw_catlady I try....sometimes is hard, but there is always good people out there to help you too! I can say that working with mind & breath really work even for daily activities, during my swimming event, I used these techniques to avoid a panic attack. It really worked! 5d

From ok to so-so. No many people will like it, it is short with many irrelevant details.However, I enjoyed how New Orleans traditions were described, there are delicious recipes as expected in cozy mysteries books & it's funny.I do scrapbook & main character is the owner of a scrapbook store: Memory Mine, where memories are made".I will read next books. Carmela is an interesting character.Thank you @mabell who chose it from my litsy tbr 1 yr ago?

mabell I‘m glad you liked it enough to read on! It is fun to read a cozy featuring your hobby :) 4d
Gissy @mabell Most of Cozy mysteries are like that, maybe not a great great story but they have something cozy that just captivate you. In this book, I liked Carmela, New Orleans historical mystery, traditions and everything started in a scrapbook store? Yes, definitely for me. Thank you so much. I'm ready to read the 2nd book😍❤️❤️❤️❤️ 4d

I received this book in this subscription😍It is a thriller so go blind!It is written in form of letters character explain the past so solicitor she is trying to hire can understand her current situation.From the beginning I had doubts why this person took the job as a nanny but book was written in a way that I couldn't put it down.There are good twists but I have doubts with the end not totally real but is still a good book3.8⭐️Gifts in box?So-so

LeahBergen I was interested in this book. 👍🏻 1w
Gissy @LeahBergen In general it was good. The majority of thrillers have their weak areas so I just skip those areas and enjoy the book. It is short, I think it has only like 336 pages. 1w

Well, I established realistic goal which was to read 55 books, 2 more books in comparison from last year which ended with 71 in December 2018. Lets see what happen on December 2019.

Thank you Litsy family for motivate me to read more, you are part responsible to have an enormous tbr, reason of why I decided not to die or continue read as a ghost😂🤣thanks to Litsy swappers😘

N.E.W.T.s HP magical readathon-2nd book for class I will "teach" in Hogwarts?Divination-prompt=read a short story or a collection of short stories. I read some of these short stories and they were from ok to so-so. In my opinion the majority were not well integrated, had abrupt endings without much sense. It was like authors were told to write a story in a "rush" or limited time?even when some of them are in our list of good writers. 3⭐️

I just want to express that my thoughts and my heart are with all the people in the Bahamas and to all of the persons who are suffering the impact of Hurricane Dorian😔I know this is a hard time for them. We went through a hurricane category 4 and can't imagine how terrible this could be. 😢But we are here to support and help them!😘

Samplergal Thanks. Not sure where in Florida this will be landing, but I know a few of us here would like some positive thoughts. Bahamas look absolutely devastated. So very sad. 2w
Gissy @Samplergal I'm still want, wish, hope that the hurricane can dissipate and goes in direction to the ocean without causing any damage or least can be a minimum impact without taking any life. I have beloved friends living in that area and my heart is also with all of you😘❤️❤️❤️❤️ 2w

You will see the interaction of daily life Block Island residents with island summer visitors. Three different families will be involved during a summer season revealing some family secrets. What I liked is that there is representation of different generations and you will get interested in each one of them. It is a slow pace family drama with a sad twisted secret at the end for one of the families. I enjoyed it. 3.7⭐️

A family drama mystery. Sylvie went to Netherlands because her beloved grandmother is dying, never returned. Her sister Amy will find out what happened to her & will discover many family secrets connected to this disappearance.Action in this novel is so slow but I liked how author described places. I felt like I was there. I also enjoyed how author described how transcultural traditions impacted the formation of Amy, Sylvie & their family. 3.7⭐️

In general, it was funny and it is a light summer story. However, it has a lot of cliché and explicit sex scenes. If you don't bother these two things well it can be cute. Friends since childhood but he didn't know how she felt about him. He had an injury that took him out from what he loved to do. He returned to his old town and then...I will say, that both of them "fixed" each other in their lives. 3⭐️

More than a thriller, it seems a family drama with a mystery. Maybe not the great story, slow in its development but it was so amazingly interesting to see the dynamic between Diana and Lucy personalities!This novel suggest you to listen and evaluate the two perspectives of a situation before you make a conclusion about someone's behavior, or about what happened.That psychological narration was fantastic. Sad ending. @Avanders gave this bottle 4⭐️

This is an adult contemporary novel in which we will see the common story of hate-love relationship. It was funny. I think sometimes characters behave more like teenagers but in general it was cute. If you want a light, funny, maybe in some parts silly story , this is the one. There is some light family drama at the end with a happy ever ending. I really enjoy it perfect for summer time or if you are in a reading slump 3.5⭐️ because is silly-funny

Gissy @Jeannineth You are right. It is too hyped but if you read it just for fun it is ok. That's why I said it is simple, funny and it could be cute at moments. I think most of these rom-com are like that. The last one I read that was not good. 2mo

Gissy @mabell It is part of my china (I think that it is called, for us is vajilla which means a set of plates). I still need to complete it because it is sold by pieces🙄well I really don't need it because I don't cook and I hardly receive visitors☺️ 2mo
mabell @Gissy You never know when someone will drop by! Like a Litsy friend! 😄🙋‍♀️😂 2mo

Mehso-so

I liked how bisexual topic was described for a teenager that is still discovering herself as a person. She thought was lesbian but she felt attracted, in love with a male, because it is not about physical appearance is about the person you feel attracted, who you love. Bisexual persons sometimes feel judged even by the queer community b/c of their bi orientation. However, story was so slow, sometimes I was disconnected. From ok to so-so 3.3⭐️

An adult rom-com story in which you will see the typical hate/love relationship and guest what? Yes, they work together?At the beginning it was hilarious with Sera personality. Then Ben has a "secret" which I don't understand why he has to hide.The drama part in my opinion was not well integrated. Love JJ and Bruce characters (LGBT representation). The end? Well too abrupt. But I still think some persons will enjoy this reading in summer. 3.3⭐️

1.It will be better to ask persons how they see me.But I'm here to try help others. 2.I do it every time in everything I do.A couple of minutes by myself, in silence and I can recover. 3. "Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side where she/he never shows to anybody" Mark Twain. I believe in this but I see it in a good way, know our dark side to change it for a positive one, a way to challenge our fears.Thanks for tagging me @kamoorephoto

kamoorephoto I do like that Mark Twain quote... 2mo

Photo obtained from google, today we celebrate La Noche de San Juan where persons go to the beach (as you can see in the photo) or to a pool. The origin of this festivity is a Christian one.I could say that many persons don't know the origin of this celebration. My personal opinion is many persons intertwine the Christian origin with pagan traditions. At midnight they will go into the water to take the "bad things out". An excuse to have fun??❤️

hermyknee @Gissy @Avanders that‘s a good idea! I keep notes on my phone, but a spreadsheet or sticky notes sounds like a better way to do it! 3mo
