Page 2... I Made it all the way up to page 2 before shedding a tear.

So far I‘ve read about one chapter but this book has got me hooked. In a constant state of awe and sadness. The Classical music in the background makes it even more emotional.

A book like this should be mandatory, would definitely recommend it 📚❤️

Who knew...! I share a common passion with the amazing Stephen Fry 😍
This book about greek mythology blows my mind! It‘s funny, impressive.. so well written!

As a bonus, i‘m listening to the audiobook as well (read by the author)
I‘ve died and are now resting in the Elysian fields 😉😉❤️❤️📘📘🌹🌹

Lucky for me, the audio/e-book service Storytel also had this book by Jeff Guinn. Although some patterns are similar to Manson‘s, mostly a very different approach. The whole socialism thing worked so well for Jones. If only it stayed that way.. power and adoration can be so venomous..

The part about Sharon Tate was truely heartbreaking 😓

Bought this book a few days back, I‘ve always wanted to write down my life‘s story...So much to tell ☺️

my huge (mixed raced) family alone gives me enough to fill 5 books 😆 Add to the mix some health issues, depressions, lots of love and an enormous bag of laughs..

Hmmm.. Maybe stick to reading for now 😆

Judas | Astrid Holleeder

Am loving this tracking app, Bookout ?
This is a chart from last week, this week I'm reading "Judas", by the sister of the notorious criminal Willem Holleeder, one of the men responsible for kidnapping mr. Heineken.. I've read a lot of gruesome fiction, but knowing this is real makes my blood boil..

Suzze Sounds interesting. Gotta love the App Store. Search for it, it comes up in the drop down box, then says "no results found". Had to google it and click on the link to take me back to the App Store to get it. 3y
QueenAnne @Suzze oh no, really? Damn that sucks! Wasn't like that for me.. hopefully it makes up for it by being awesome 😁 3y
Suzze @QueenAnne I've had this problem before. Search the App Store, it brings up exactly what I want then says it doesn't find it. Makes no sense. But I can always find it by googling it, so I'll survive. 😁 3y

Good news for me! My first selection of books to bring to Switzerland weighs only 6 kilograms 😍 after I'm done packing I'll probably stuff in more wherever I can! (If needed leave many unnecessary things, likes shoes and whatever behind! 😝😝) Shampoo and stuff I'll just buy there

My family and friends (except @Noonnie who helped me pick a selection) think I'm crazy! Some even told me to get a Kindle.. not my thing though..

Shemac77 Not mine either. I try but I just don't feel like I'm reading. Have so much fun in Switzerland! 3y

thegirlwiththelibrarybag It's only crazy if you don't read them while you're away (or at least that's how I justify my packing choices) I'm all about paper books at home but I quite like my kindle for travel - I have a case for it that makes it look like an old leather bound book ☺️ or for when my handbag just isn't quite big enough for the book I'm reading (why are handbags often way too small or ridiculously large? 3y
Lindy It's good that you've got some nice fat books to keep you occupied. No need to swap. 😀 3y

Welcome all Littens brave enough, to #Scaretober!

Hope you will all enjoy this month, and get plenty of goosebumps! Did you know dead people can get goosebumps too? But only when a demon is near one of their loved ones.. 👹 no just kidding, it can appear like they have goosebumps, because the hair follicles contract. That's also why it can appear like their hair has grown..

Happy readings everyone 👻 and sweet dreams...

Giving up our phones, houses, family and friends, our books? And what for? For a religion or race? Before I go to sleep everyday, I try to be grateful for all our blessings, we all nag a lot "his whatever is better than mine" etc. We are so blessed my lovely Littens ❤️

I nearly died when I read this intro to "Blockade Billy" ????? To be able to say that about yourself, is proof of true greatness! Should be a genre in itself, imagine walking in a library or bookstore: "drama, sciencefiction, YA, thriller, detective, Stephen King, non-fiction, true crime" ??

There are so many great quotes, I couldn't choose! Was especially looking at Poe, but decided to go with what I feel right now. And right now, I need to have faith. I need to see that there's always a silver lining. So I chose this gem ? "Whatever causes night in our souls, may leave stars" ❤️

Remember that my sweet Litsy family?

Sarah1960 I have gone back to the "Classics" and just finished Frankenstein. And am now, in the beginning of Dracula. Wow what I have been missing. Nothing like the movies which I should have guessed. Have you read these 2 @QueenAnne 3y

QueenAnne @Sarah1960 I've read both of them, and I loved it! And I've had that same reaction "where have they been all my life" ? I hope you like Dracula, I prefer it over Frankenstein although not many Littens would agree with me. Have fun and keep me posted! ? 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @QueenAnne I'm definitely in. I've been hash tagging #HorrorHalloween for my plans! And there's also a #ghostsoflitsy movement for October. Great minds think alike!🎃🕸👹 3y

So.. I started to learn Spanish on Duolingo..
I'm not afraid of spiders but.. ???? made me go: "ay ay ay, dios mio!" (Is that correct?)

Amandajoy What kind of spider is it? Dios mio, indeed! 3y
Qemorio This is hilarious. We used duolingo to learn Spanish before our trip to Peru this past May. We made fun of this exact sentence! When hiking in the rainforest our guide stopped and showed us a huge spider that digs holes in the ground and waits for birds to fall in then EATS them!! 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage I love Duolingo. Spent more time with it before Litsy though. 3y

QueenAnne @Amandajoy exactly 😱 @Qemorio OMG! What a coincidence! But 😱😱😱😱 omg remind me to NEVER go there dressed as a bird 😝no but in all seriousness.. that sounds freaky as hell, so glad to be living in The Netherlands amongst cows and chickens and unscary beasts hihi 😄 3y
QueenAnne @BarbaraTheBibliophage hihi yes me too, but I wanted to pick it up again, or I'll never be able to learn other languages hihi! 3y
Elisa 😨😨😨 3y
LibrarianJen Jajaja (that's lol in Spanish) si, ay dios mio es correcto. 3y
Amandajoy @Qemorio Thanks for that nightmare inducing story! 😳 3y
WanderingBookaneer That is indeed correct. 3y
QueenAnne @LibrarianJen muchas gracias! 3y
QueenAnne @WanderingBookaneer thank you 😄 3y

Revival: A Novel | Stephen King
post image

My bookcase is filled with scary stories, simply because I live for them ? but for today's #somethingforsept #scarybooks I would like to single out "Revival" by Stephen King. Only those #littens who've read this book from cover to cover will know why.. it's all in the ending baby! All of you scary book lovers who haven't read it yet, please do ?❤️ and let me know what you thought of it! ?❤️

Sweet dreams.. *beep beep*

Varshitha I am intrigued by Horror books but I have never read one yet.. Haven't got the nerve to do it yet, but I have decide October will be my scary month😁... I have a long list of scary books that I want to read.. 3y
QueenAnne @Varshitha very brave of you! And I'm sure you'll like it! Start slow and ease your way into it 😉 keep me posted for #scaretober ! I'm curious to see what you'll read! 📚have fun! 3y
erzascarletbookgasm I'm a wimp, I don't read much scary books. I admire those who do and enjoy them! 😁 3y

[DELETED] 3216391035 Just picked up my first Stephen King from the library yesterday from a Litsy recommendation! I'm like @Varshitha , haven't read any horror but it's time to try! 3y
Readingismyescape I love scary books and Stephen King has been my favorite author since I was a teenager. I can't believe I still haven't read 3y
Varshitha @QueenAnne Sure... @basia it is indeed , glad I have you for company.. 3y
kendra 😍 3y
Autumn Yes! 3y
MrBook Niiiice! 3y
QueenAnne @erzascarletbookgasm ahw, I'm sure the #littens can help you find a mildly scary book to start with! @Basia that is such a good book to start with! I loved it ?? welcome to the "King side of life"❤️? keep on reading! 3y
QueenAnne @Readingismyescape mine too! Ever since I've been traumatized by the movie IT! I was very little then, but apparently it triggered a macabre side in me 😝 Revival is such a good book! You should really read it & let me know what you think! 😍😍 3y
Eugeniavb That ending is the scariest thing SK has crafted in quite some time 3y

Something a little bit different for today's #septphotochallenge #blameitonlitsy although my Litsy family has introduced me to so many great books, my biggest revelation was audiobooks! They made me so happy when I couldn't read for a while (vertigo, headaches) So thank you @Litsy for making this app and thank you lovely #littens for being awesome and supportive ❤️❤️📚🍀🍀🎉

Qemorio I LOVE audio books. I discovered them years ago when there were only cassettes and I had a long drive to work. I'm glad you have discovered them now too!! 3y
Donnasmiles I love audio books too! I've found that when I'm in the car waiting for school pickup they provide endless entertainment. Sorry about your vertigo and headaches. Have you given essential oils a try? Amazing results! 3y
BeththeBookDragon Have you read Perfume yet? My book club read it years ago, and it led to some very interesting discussions 3y

QueenAnne @Qemorio thank you, I'm glad too! @Donnasmiles I haven't but I will keep that in mind, my dizzyness etc comes from my asthma, it very very bad right now (my longues are functioning for 50% now) combined with the high dosage of medicines, but I'm going to Switserland in a few weeks to a special clinic 3y
QueenAnne @bethfriedman906 I have, and I loved it! It's my kind of story 😍 what did you think of it? 3y
Donnasmiles I wish you the best on your health journey... 3y
QueenAnne @Donnasmiles thank you very much 🍀 3y
BeththeBookDragon @QueenAnne I liked it better than everyone else in the book club. I was the one that suggested it too, I think the premise turned everyone else off 3y
QueenAnne @bethfriedman906 really? I liked it actually, in a way it's a tragic story about a boy/man who feels invisible and overwhelmed by humanity. A highly sensitive introvert, relate anyone? 😉 3y
MizDoniaBuding love audiobooks especially when the narrator does a good job reading it...Perfume was a very interesting book...one of its kind & i enjoyed it very much also...what a twist @ the end 3y
QueenAnne @MizDoniaBuding I started audiobooks with "And then there were none" as read by Dan Stevens, he did a very good job! Perfume was great, I love twists ? 3y
