From the acknowledments:

"I'm not much of a joiner bit im delighted to say I'm a #TallPoppyWriter this group celebrates and supports the talent, passion, determination and general badassery of women writers and Im lucky to be counted among them"

I wonder if there are any #TallPoppyWriter here on #Litst? Anyone familiar with this group of writer's?

As a Mystic I experience #synchronicity & #serendipity quite often so it's no surprise to find that different 📦 from different swap partners here on #Litsty would synchronize beautifully. As you can see #DeborahHarkness author of #BookOfLife also dies the #introduction on the manuscript as she is a historian of science and professor at #USC

Another intriguing book that was part of my #SSS swap hosted deftly by @Avanders and sent by the one and only @Wonderwoman89 😁👍

Another new author for me to discover! The actual book itself is beautifully printed with an embossed cover. The story sounds fascinating: four life long friends, one goes missing and the discovery of an enigmatic Book

So much work to get done and now I just want to sit here and pore over these thoughtful gifts.

One of the intriguing selections I received in my swap. I have yet to read anything by this particular author but the jacket description and reviews have me eager to start this with so much I can personally relate with...there is even a character that uses #Tarot and #Omens in nature!! 😁👍 Oh and there is a reader's guide included which is a nice bonus.

I've read 100 pages so far, but I may hold off until next month because this would be perfect for the very first prompt of the #Booked2019 challenge. Features an interesting female private detective trying to solve a crime that seems paranormal. She is sharp, sly and sarcastic and as a divorce has sworn off men and sex for that matter and focuses solely on her job.

Three possible candidate for prompt#5 of the #Booked2019 challenge

#RoddyDoyle is an accomplished, award-winning Irish author. His fiction is historical and rooted in the troubling aspects of life in Modern Ireland.

#WomanWhoWalkedIntoDoors and it's sequel #PaulaSpencer tackle domestic violence in a Catholic society opposed to Divorce.

@BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft
@Cinfhen

BarbaraTheBibliophage I read my first John Boyne last year, The Heart‘s Invisible Furies. He tackles the social mores of Irish Catholicism too. Not surprised to see it‘s a common theme among Irish writers. (Tagging @Cinfhen again, our third co-host.) 7mo

I purchased these back in 2001 when I was diagnosed. There may be better texts available that are more timely, but these two were ahead of their time and still hold up well. Do any of you Littens suffer from a chronic condition that makes life challenging? Do your books serve as an anodyne?

"...rational prayer is but a method to bring you to a deeper, more tranquil relationship with your Lord. When you have arrived at this second level of prayer you put an end to all rational discussion; instead, you rest. A simple vision of God...this is more meaningful prayer"(6).

#SSS #StuffedStockingSwap @Avanders

The above image is symbolic. The snowstorm delayed my order from Amazon and a few items in that order are essential to the two stockings I'm sending out. Everything is ready to go (foot half way out the door) but I'm just awaiting the order which is supposed to arrive by 8PM tonight. After some wrapping they will be sent out immediately and I will do everything possible to ensure delivery by the open date

Avanders ❄️☃️💙🎁🕺🏽 7mo
bookcollecter I got it right this time?? 😂 7mo

As a photographer I prefer to be behind the lens, but here is a selfie of me and my daughter Emma at the Chinese Buffet.

I tagged my daughter's favorite book as it's the only one she will discuss with me.
