I can‘t stop crying 😢.My mum informed me that my dad is in the hospital after being hit by a car (hit and run) while cycling. He has 5 broken ribs, broken collarbones and a pneumothorax. Being far away is tearing me apart. I want to send him some books, similar to the tagged book (in the picture it‘s dad with the book I sent him a few months ago), any suggestions please? Thank you friends ❤️ hoping for some good news🙏

Angeles Best wishes for a quick and full recovery for your dad. My only suggestion given his injuries is to go for audiobooks so he doesn‘t need to hold up a heavy tome. Libro.fm allows you to gift audiobooks or subscriptions of the service for a few months so he can pick what he likes 9mo
MySharonaK @Angeles thank you so much, I really appreciate it ! I didn‘t know about Libro.fm, does it work internationally? 💛🙏 9mo
Angeles Yes according to their website. I am pasting what they posted in their website Where is Libro.fm available?

Anyone can buy audiobooks à la carte and purchase gift memberships, which can be bought for yourself or for others. The monthly membership is currently available only to customers in the U.S. and Canada. The Libro.fm community includes listeners from all over the world
9mo
Angeles How do I know if an audiobook is available in my country?

Since publishers often restrict where certain audiobooks can be sold, you‘ll be notified after you enter your credit card information if an audiobook is not available for purchase in your country (and of course, you won‘t be charged should that be the case). You can also search for audiobooks by country: Search here and select country availability in the filter
9mo
MySharonaK @Angeles thank you so much for taking the time and effort to find the answers! I really appreciate it and I think you‘re right and it‘s the best solution in his condition ❤️💖 9mo

Trashcanman How's Pops doing? 9mo
MySharonaK @Trashcanman thank you for asking 😘 still no change but the doctors are speaking about the possibility of releasing him over the weekend 🤞 9mo
Trashcanman Still wishing you'll the best, I was hit by a car when I was 15 while riding a bike. Spent 16 days in the hospital. Then months more in physical therapy. I hope he gets to go home soon. 9mo
MySharonaK @Trashcanman Thank you! I‘m so sorry to heart you‘ve been through this horrible experience too 💜 9mo
BookNAround I‘m so sorry this happened to your dad! I hope he‘s improving. I remember loving the Dragonsinger series by Anne McCaffery. They might be up his alley. 9mo
TheRiehlDeal Hope he makes a full recovery! 🤞 People who hit and run are the worst! At least have some dignity to stop and make sure the person is alright. And also call the police to say you hit someone and turn yourself in. 9mo

I feel that my words won‘t do this novel justice. It‘s a rare beauty, a haunting tale that manages to stay quiet and gentle while letting the horrors creep in. It broke my heart but then also hugged me. When finished I felt that I wish it was longer. A true gem.

Gissy I really loved that novel and it broke my heart. Beautifully written. 9mo

#InventedByAnimals #NetGalley

What a treat it was to review this one, thank you #NetGalley! It‘s such a lovely book about animals that inspired the technology we have now and will inspire the technology of the future, all while being mindful of the impact on our planet and how we can protect it more. The book is interesting and funny and I hope it‘s going to be translated into many languages. Total pick!

Thank you NetGalley for the privilege to review this graphic novel.
This is a heart-warming and heart-breaking (both at the same time) graphic novel.
Kelly and Luke Jackson are letting us in on their private journey through infertility, ivf, hope, dreams and heartbreaks. The art is simple but beautiful and the artist depicts emotions perfectly. I recommend this to anyone really as it‘s also about love and dreams ❤️

What can I say about this book that means so much to me? To me this is Grossman at his finest but it‘s also Israeli literature at its finest.

Blast from the past! Little me in Israel reading my favourite book as a little child. This book is called Tiras Ham (Hot Corn) and tells the story of a group of friends walking the streets and singing about hot corn and looking forward to having it. This book was probably my first favourite book and made me nag my parents everyday for some corn on a cob. #Israel #foodandlit

To me Israeli food is home and Israeli snacks are a big part of it. This snack is called Bamba, it‘s made from peanuts and I can say with confidence it‘s the most loved Israeli snack. Whenever I get a parcel from my loved ones in Israel, I know they are going to send some Bamba too. This one was sent by my lovely grandma last month ❤️ #israel #foodandlit

Yuki_Onna @MySharonaK Looks delicious! ❤Yumyum... 🍿Much love to you! 😘 10mo
MySharonaK @Yuki_Onna ❤️❤️ thank you! And much love to you my darling 😘💕 10mo
Smrloomis Cool, it‘s made out of peanuts or something peanut related right? I think I read about it because Israelis don‘t have a lot of kids with peanut allergies... something like that. 10mo
See All 9 Comments
MySharonaK @Smrloomis yes you‘re absolutely right! it‘s made from peanuts and because Israeli children eat Bamba from a pretty young age, peanut allergy is not as common there 10mo

Just before we are leaving #Ethiopia and moving to #Israel I thought I‘d recommend this Israeli Tv series that combines a little bit of both. Nevsu (means soul in Amharic) is an Israeli sitcom about a mixed family of Ethiopian Jews and Ashkenazi Jews, as they navigate through prejudices and clash of cultures. The series won the international Emmy, it is partly in Hebrew and partly in Amharic but there are subtitles too :) enjoy! #foodandlit

Mehso-so

First and most importantly, this is a well written thriller, it took me a bit to get into but then I devoured most of the book in a day. The downside is that the matter of fact way of telling the story as well as the predictable ending left me feeling underwhelmed.

WormForWords I must say, I got very excited when I saw ‘MySharona‘ because that‘s my name and I usually use that as a username as well and I‘ve never seen another!! 😅🥰 11mo

Sometimes I Lie | Alice Feeney

Mehso-so

I think so-so is the best description for this one. Some of the twists are good and thought-through, some feel rushed and meh. I think I am going to give the TV series a try when it's out because I want to see if they are able to improve the meh bits and focus on the good ones. What did you all think about Sometimes I Lie?

LazyOwl I didn't mind it. I read it a while ago for book club, but in saying that I don't read much in this genre, so my expectations are not too high. I didn't realise there was a TV series. I will have to check it out. 14mo
MySharonaK @LazyOwl the series is with Sarah Michelle Gellar as the main character but I‘m not sure when it‘s going to be released 14mo

Panpan

Finally finished this book. I could barely stomach it, literally it made me feel queasy and nauseous. Not only is it an uncomfortable read it‘s also disgusting and has everything in the world that is triggering and upsetting. The author is talented, because her ability to tell a story in a fresh and believable way, however, I won‘t recommend this book to anybody. when I finished I was so glad to return the book to the library and be off with it

Texreader Thanks for the warnings! I‘ll have to steer clear and of this one! 14mo
lazydaizee This book sounds like it could be upsetting for the reader. I like to read to escape , so I will not be reading this . 14mo

MySharonaK @Yuki_Onna oh no! I‘m sorry you had to go through that, but so glad it was negative! Are you feeling unwell dear? ❤️ I‘m the same more or less as I was last time, my health is really giving me some grief at the moment 1y
Yuki_Onna @MySharonaK Oh no, dear! So sorry you're still not feeling well! I hope there are better times to come soon! ❤ ❤
Jep, I'm on sick leave at the moment because of some virus infection. Not that bad, I've had worse, but I have such a headache, I cannot concentrate at all... 😣

Do you plan on participating in any readathon in October, by the way? October is one of my fav months - spooky season, yay! - and I hope I'll feel better by then...
1y
MySharonaK @Yuki_Onna thank you darling and for you as well! I‘m sorry to hear you‘re feel unwell and that it‘s hard to concentrate❤️❤️ hope you get better soon 🤞🤞.

The easiest thing will be to participate in #Screamathon - the only thing you need to do is to post your TBR before October 1st (the spookier the better! 💀) and to tag 4thhouseontheleft on #Screamathon-related posts.

Yuki_Onna @MySharonaK Yes, that's the good part. I'm soo looking forward to reading in my bed tonight! 😄 Oh yes, it started raining heavily about two hours ago here. No storm yet, thank God, because my hubby is still at work. Once he is safely home, it's ok for the storm to start... 😅 I love having quiet evenings in when there's rough weather outside... Has it been stormy for some time in Wales or has it also started tonight? 1y
MySharonaK @Yuki_Onna hopefully your hubby gets back before it starts to be stormy! Yes, it has been stormy tonight, it started today around noon time I would say, it‘s so odd, as a couple of days ago it was about 22 degrees! 1y
Yuki_Onna @MySharonaK I hope so, too! ... -Yes! It's been the exact same here, we've also had exceptionally warm and nice days till today at about noon - some people still went bathing in lakes yesterday! And today at noon it started getting cloudy. Strange... But I guess it's becoming autumn finally... Do you live at the coast or near to the border of England? 1y
MySharonaK @Yuki_Onna the coast but not the far west end. I would say South-West Wales. 1y
Yuki_Onna @MySharonaK Yay, both from the south-west! >South-West Germany here. 😁 Do you live at the seaside then? How cool! That's a dream of mine, living at the cast with the sea nearby... *sigh* Unfortunately I live pretty much inland, it's about 800 km to the sea from where I live... 😞

timeisfleeting I love treasure hunting for books! I like both tea and coffee while reading-- just depends on my mood. 1y
MySharonaK @timeisfleeting where do you usually book hunt? 1y
timeisfleeting @MySharonaK-- I look for books everywhere-- library sales, garage/yard sales, rummage sales, thrift shops. Sometimes I find them in unlikely places. I recently went to a building supply/closeout store (someplace I wouldn't normally expect to find books) and the owner had piles of brand-new books. When I asked how much for them-- he said they were free, take what I wanted. They were all historic or fiction-- nothing to do with building/renovating! 1y
MySharonaK @timeisfleeting wow amazing! A gift for the book lover 😍 1y
timeisfleeting 😊 😊Yep-- @MySharonaK-- the unexpected finds in out of the way places sort of feel like stumbling upon buried treasure, or Christmas X D 👌 1y

MySharonaK @Cosmos_Moon that‘s really challenging! Especially for the parents. Ours was moved forward to 9:10 1y
Cosmos_Moon Yes, and it‘s not like our work days have gotten any shorter... they still have to be in aftercare many days til 5 or 6 and we‘re still doing the same amount of after school activities that can go until after 9. It‘s really been a tough week adjusting from being out of school since mid-March. They announced the time change at the end of may when everyone had already been out of school a couple months. 1y
MySharonaK @Cosmos_Moon yes exactly! It takes a lot of adjustments 😓is it going to stay 7:20 for the rest of the term? 1y

The book is really good and the more it progressed the more I was unable to put it down (reading until 4 am?), however after it was all finished I felt a bit underwhelmed and that the story itself was better than its conclusion.

It is hard to do something new and refreshing in this genre, and I think this one manages to do something different. This one is not perfect, there are some flaws and some of the twists were only ok, but it still manages to hold your interest and makes you think about right and wrong and how the line between them is very blurry at times.

Just finished the excellent HBO documentary series based on Michelle McNamara‘s book and I have to say that I highly recommend it. The series focussed on both the hunt for the Golden State Killer as well as Michelle‘s life and journey. Gripping and yet touching

MynameisSnow I enjoyed the book as well. I think I'm one episode away from being done with the documentary. Boy she was quite a cocktail of pills. I felt really bad for her, I felt like she was trapped by this whole mission, and while I am glad that she put so much into it, I feel bad for the darkness she lived each day. 1y
MySharonaK @MynameisSnow I feel the same as you and agree with all you‘ve said. I think it was more consuming than she had ever imagined 1y
Kimberlone I haven‘t watched the last episode yet, but the documentary series did a great job of delving into the GSK case, as well as incorporating Michelle‘s research and life 1y

Gaylagal2 I just loved every minute of HBOs docuseries on Michelle McNamara. It will probably be ties now with The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez by Netflix. 🤙 1y
MySharonaK @Gaylagal2 oh I haven‘t watched the Gabriel Fernandez yet. But now after what you‘ve said I really want to 1y
NataliePatalie Oh I didn't realize the series was out! I read the book awhile back. It took place around my hometown 👀 1y
MySharonaK @NataliePatalie 😮 was the case still talked about in your hometown before the book came out? 1y
NataliePatalie Yes! Especially once the mystery was solved! Crazy stuff 😳 1y

Thank you for the tag @MoonWitch94

1. The tagged book is probably the one I enjoyed most so far in 2020. It was dark, eerie and with twists I could not predict.

2. Normally yes, I love doing that, but I had to stop doing this for a while because my tbr is getting to the point that I will have to live to 560 to finish all of it. 😂

I tag @nosferatu @bookadict @pratham49 if you want to play ♥

TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 🤩📚 1y

This is an interesting mystery novel. I was sure I got it all figured out and even thought it was going to be a rip-off of Fog Island, but it managed to surprise and have a few interesting twist and turns. While it wasn‘t as creepy as I wanted and I did guess some of the twists, it was creepy enough and thought provoking enough for me to give it a ‘pick‘. (Also it takes place in Wales!🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿)

Yuki_Onna 👋 Wales! 🤘 2y

MySharonaK @savvyliterate thank you! Giles is such a sweet cat 😻 2y
OnlyYoo Is your cat named after the Buffy character? 2y
MySharonaK @OnlyYoo no, actually. My 8 year old daughter picked the name (“because it‘s a posh name!” - Her words) and we said yes because of the character from Buffy and the brothers Giles who started King Crimson 2y
OnlyYoo Haha posh name is as good a reason as any! It is a very sweet name 2y
Gissy Those beautiful green eyes💚 2y
MySharonaK @Gissy 💚 thank you! Just had a staring contest with him (and I lost...!) 2y

As far as the story goes it was pretty interesting (though I didn‘t really care for the parts told from the detective‘s POV). Though a bit predictable at times and not exactly a thriller I did enjoy the story and how it unfolded. The big problem I had with the book is that the tone felt racist at times.

MySharonaK It was also very far from being pro-choice (I felt the author lectured the reader about that) 2y

In the first few chapters the writing felt quite childish and unedited for me, and just as I was about to DNF it gotten much better. The problem for me with this one is that the twists were not surprising and most of them were sort of predictable. However I would like to try another book by this author that perhaps would be a better fit for me.
