This book was well done. A captivating read. Definitely much better than Jordan's other book 'When She Woke', which had a amazing premise and start but fell flat about halfway through. I was apprehensive to pick this one up because of that, but ultimately I'm glad I gave it a chance.

TrishB I enjoyed this one 👍🏻 6d

Pre Gaming for tonight's episode!! I know people hate this season, and it's definitely flawed, but I'm loving every second of it! #HouseStark 🐺

mcctrish #burnthemall I need some of these Oreos to process all the things 1w
cherinium I'm also in the "love" camp. Today I've been reading how many people hated Episode 5. I, for one, think it was brilliant. I believe that the burning of Kings Landing was perfectly in alignment with Dany's character. She has always had that madness bubbling just under the surface. It makes sense that it would boil over when Dany is angered/hurt enough. I also think it was appropriate for the Lannister twins to die together. 1w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @cherinium Totally agreed!! The thing that I wasn't happy with was how Cersei didn't have a back up plan. She was solely counting on the scorpions? That didn't make any sense to me. I though for sure she was going to use wildfire, and take Kings Landing down with her. She lost her fight which seemed out of character to me... I do wish they had done more episodes the last two seasons, to do better justice to character/plot development tho. 1w
cherinium @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego You are right that Cersei folding the way she did was out of character. Especially with a baby to look forward to. Wildfire has been the go to weapon for Kings Landing so many times that I also expected her to use it some way. I thought she might have set up a trap for Drogon that would kill him and Dany with Wildfire. 1w
TrishB Just wasn‘t Cersei for me. 1w

🍁🍁 Attention Canadian Littens 🍁🍁 If anyone is still interested in joining my #PoutinePenPals snail mail group please email me (see comments) with your Name, Litsy Handle, Mailing Address & Birthday. Or if you have any questions. I'm hoping to have everyone's info by March 27. (But will always be accepting new members).

(Kind of like the Canadian version of @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks #LitsyLove 💌)

March has been all about the Obamas!! Drove 6 hours round trip to see Michelle on her Becoming book tour!! 💕💕💕 I don't know how I got so fortunate to see both her & Barack in the same month, but I love it. #inspired #becoming

Just_reading Lucky! Just picked up this book from library today (after several months on the wait list!) 2mo
Beatlefan129 That‘s awesome! I just finished Becoming, but I missed Michelle when she was here in Denver. She is such an amazing woman 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Beatlefan129 She is so amazing 💖 2mo

Thanks for the tags @Beatlefan129 @Mitch

? Planning on being more active & outdoorsy
? Physically I'd say my hair. I have a grey streak, and like to compare myself to Rogue from X-Men ?
? I'm proud of all the travelling I've done. I'm not rich & no one in my family travels, but I had the desire & made it happen. "She believed she could so she did."

wanderinglynn Thanks for playing! 😘 2mo
xicanti Super envious of your Rogue hair. 😍 I‘ve got a few white forelock hairs that I hope will turn into a proper streak one of these days, but no luck so far. 2mo

#PoutinePenPals Hello! I was wondering if you would be interested in starting a small Pen Pal group with me? I've been inspired by all the LitsyLove mail lately. However, I wanted to just do Canadians, to better connect with my peoples, and to keep costs lower. I'm also looking for a smaller group so I don't over commit myself. Interested?⬇️

LeahBergen I‘ve been somewhat hesitant (and intimidated) to join any sort of pen pal thing because I‘m sure I wouldn‘t keep up and then I‘d be a “bad pen pal”. 😆😆 (edited) 2mo
PurpleyPumpkin I‘ve been thinking that I‘d like to get involved in a group pen pal exchange. But all the groups have seemed so huge that I was put off a bit. If it‘s a small group and there aren‘t too many firm deadlines, I‘m in! Like @LeahBergen I don‘t want to considered to be a bad participant if I fall a bit behind. Thanks for tagging me @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego !👍🏽 2mo

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @PurpleyPumpkin @LeahBergen I was intimidated by the big groups too! That's why I didn't advertise openly. We'll just start off small. There will be no pressure, just send off a little note when you feel like it. Its 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego It's just meant to be fun. 2mo
PurpleyPumpkin That sounds great! I‘m definitely in. 🙌🏽 2mo
FantasyChick Sure, sign me up! I've thought about doing some of the bigger groups but I just don't have the discipline for that, lol. Casual and small works for me 😊 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Yay! So then for those who want to participate can you send me an email with your Full Name, Litsy Handle, Mailing Address & Birthday. Then once I have everyone's info I'll share it with the group. 😊 danielle_gangur@hotmail.com @PurpleyPumpkin @LeahBergen @FantasyChick @thereadingowlvina @RaimeyGallant 💌 2mo
RaimeyGallant I have always been a terrible pen pal unfortunately. Like, the worst. I moved from NS to Manitoba in grade nine, and could only manage a month of it...thank goodness facebook came along because it was my opportunity to reconnect. 2mo
RaimeyGallant Love the hashtag so much, though. 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego 🍁 Hello Canadian Littens. We're looking for a few more Littens to join our small litsylove inspired #PoutinePenPals group. If you're interested shoot me an email with your details danielle_gangur@hotmail.com 🍁 @tournevis @TheKidUpstairs @ShelleyBooksie @Tianarose @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @CouronneDhiver @xicanti @TK-421 @quirkthenerd @BookishTrish @DaveNeufeld @huntersmom1977 @LA_Mead 2mo
ShelleyBooksie I'm in 2mo
tournevis @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I've though about it, but I'm cutting stuff out of my schedule, right now, not adding, no matter how appealing. Sorry. 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @ShelleyBooksie Awesome! Since I already have most your info, I just need your birthday then! 😁 2mo
FantasyChick Holy crap! I just realized that I forgot to send you an email. My mind lately... I swear 🤯 Going to shoot you off one now before I forget.. again lol 2mo
LA_Mead @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Sounds like fun! Count me in! 2mo
huntersmom1977 I‘d be more than happy to do this 😊 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @huntersmom1977 great! Just email me you're name, address, handle & birthday. 😁 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Hello Littens! Looking to start a small low commitment 🍁Canadian🍁 pen pal group #PoutinePenPals & it was suggested to me you might be interested? If you are, shoot me an email with your Full Name, Litsy Handle, Mailing Address & Bday danielle_gangur@hotmail.com @Bookish.SAM @Andrea4 @Bibliogeekery @candority @Chellebearss @teebe @DebbieGrillo @KarynGood @kelseynicburke @mcctrish @Melissa_J @sherryvdh 2mo
teebe I‘m in! Will send an email in the morning. 2mo
Bookish.SAM Interesting!! I‘d probably suck as a pen pal but I do like the idea of collecting up the Canadians for easier swaps or even meet ups? I‘ll send an email and once you sort out the plans I‘ll figure out if I can commit to this round. 2mo
candority This sounds like so much fun! I‘m only hesitating because I know that I will be moving frequently (~ every 4 months) for the next couples of years. I could use my parents address, but that might slow my response. What do you think? 2mo
kelseynicburke I‘m in! I‘ll send an email :) 2mo
Melissa_J As much as I love the idea, I‘m awful at execution. I‘m delinquent enough with my two current penpals, sadly, so I‘ll have to pass. 2mo
KarynGood Sounds intriguing! Will email you for more details! 2mo
mcctrish Sounds like fun and I will email 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @candority Hmm. Well it is meant to be casual so your contact address could be your parents, and you don't have to write with everyone necessarily. Also, Postcards from each new place is always a fun idea. It's up to you, and what you're comfortable managing. 😊💌 2mo
Chellebearss Interesting idea. What would it involve? 2mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian This sounds lovely but I am way overcommited to too many things already! Thanks for thinking of me 😀 2mo
xicanti I‘m super tempted (because MAIL!), but I don‘t think I could go all in with this right now. I love that it exists, though! 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Chellebearss It's just a casual pen pal group. I will collect everyone's contact info & share with the group. Then you can decide if you want to write to all or just a few. Nothing major just a little notecard to say hello. Very similar or litsylove or jb. 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @xicanti No problem! But we're here if you ever change your mind 😊 2mo
candority I think I‘m going to have to say no for now, but if you are ever looking to expand the group I would definitely be interested! I just need life to settle down a bit first 😊 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @candority That totally understandable. Sounds like you have some very interesting things going on! 2mo
TK-421 Thanks for the invite! I‘m afraid I won‘t be able to participate right now but I love the idea! 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @TK-421 That's ok! You're always welcome if you change your mind 😊 2mo
twohectobooks I am intrigued by this idea but haven‘t made it through the whole thread. 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @twohectobooks please join us! It will be fun & super casual. If you have any questions please feel free to email me danielle_gangur@hotmail.com 2mo
