Finally , reading time 👍🏻. And ....I feel myself
slowly slipping further down the dark, narrow path that is the life of the Meneses

Tamra Be careful! 1d

I‘m still on this one ... very little reading time this weekend. Great book , this writer is drawing me in deeply to this story & to this house ... this family The Meneses. It‘s dense & beautiful & strange & .... a page turner 👍🏻 ( if only I had more time to turn the pages ! ) soon ... hopefully later.
Happy Saturday lovely Littens 😘

#WondrousWednesday @Eggs

1. What ever I‘m in the mood for , literary fiction or thriller. Or a new book I‘ve just heard of & am very excited to read
2. Absolutely
3. My thoughts sometimes! ! Litsy! 😂but then Litsy IS my reading companion so that‘s ok.
4. Coffee or wine depending on the time of day. Usually I don‘t snack when reading.
5. @catebutler @LiterRohde @Amiable @charl08

Eggs Thanks for joining in Cathy💗🥰💗 @Cathythoughts 4d
batsy Litsy is my number one distraction from reading, too 😂 But it's also the gateway to more reading! So I think it evens out? 😁❤️ 4d
Cathythoughts @batsy exactly! Litsy has turned me into more of a reader than I ever was... & I do feel it‘s like my reading companion. I‘d be lost without Litsy now 4d

#MayMovieMadness #OriginOfLove I didn‘t get much reading done last night , but I did listen to some interesting talks on love ... “we never know all the good that a single smile can do” #BlameItOnLitsy

TrishB How lovely 💕 makes me think of the conversation with my daughter this morning. She has her first A level exam and is so anxious. She said what if I fail them all and I said I‘ll still love you - it made her laugh anyway which is better than the tears last night! She‘s worked so hard too. 4d
Cathythoughts @TrishB oh Trish I wish your daughter Charlotte all the best in her exams. I appreciate her stress over them ... it‘s a tough time ! The pressure is rediculous, but so real & especially at that age. I‘m sure she will excel ... sending all the best , Cathy X 4d

#MayMovieMagic #SaveMe Bunny is definitely crying out to be saved in this book first published in 1950. I feel like I‘ve read it before or maybe there was a movie ?! But I‘m not sure if I can finish it ... it‘s that unnerving & upsetting 😳

LeahBergen I recently bought this one (in an anthology)! 2w
Cathythoughts @LeahBergen this one is good. Just really scary... I‘m a divil for punishment so I‘m stacking your one & also the book she won the Edgar Award for in 1957 2w

I really liked this one ... maybe a little too much melancholy. Too many jumbled images. I think my most enduring memory / image from this book will be the small Gustav playing with his one toy , a tin train with passengers painted on the windows & Gustav whispering to passengers as he plays “ master yourselves “ ♥️💔

TrishB I loved this ❤️ but like a bit of melancholy. 2w

I loved this #BlameItOnLitsy #BlameitonAndrew61 glad not to have missed this one 👍🏻. Generations of women all woven into this story set in Winnipeg against the stark snow & What happens to their girl. The truth spoken is breathtaking. Harsh story , beautifully written

andrew61 Thanks cathy, not sure i can take all the credit as i was searching for indigenous authors whose books were in the library and saw on good reads that @ReadingEnvy and @shawnmooney had both given it 5*. But it is definitely a remarkable book - really glad you enjoyed ☺ 3w

Dear Lauren , Thankyou so so much. I‘ve already broken into the chocolate as I looked up the books ( neither of which I have ) on Litsy... they look excellent! You are so busy I know , you are very good to take the time to send me this gift 😘. I‘m thrilled! You are a doll X X X 👍🏻♥️ you must be counting the days at this point. ✨✨✨✨✨

#MayMovieMagic I have been finding it hard to settle in a book, BUT maybe this will be the one - It‘s NY 2007 and Jende ( whose wife & son are now with him from Cameroon) , Jende has now landed a good job #Behindthewheel as a chauffeur for a Lehman Brothers executive.. things are looking up .. I‘m enjoying the writing & feel a good story coming on ... With good characters...

Cathythoughts @gradcat any suggestions for more reader ecstasy .. I‘m heading off on holls & want some perfect books ( no pressure in that question 😂😂 3w
gradcat I‘m going to think about this...when do you leave? 3w
Cathythoughts @gradcat we leave in less than a week. I ordered Chronicle of the Murdered House - Lucio Cardoso. Recommended by a Litten. I think it will be fab. If I get it on time. Not on Kindle. I love a good story , well written , good characters... not that easy to find though 😘😉 3w
gradcat Just a thought: Have you read any of Jacqueline Winspear‘s “Maisie Dobbs” series? I think you might enjoy them. They are considered genre novels, however...but great writing. Setting is between the two great wars. 3w
readordierachel I've heard great things about this one. Enjoy! 3w
Cathythoughts @gradcat thanks ! I will investigate ♥️👍🏻 3w
Cathythoughts @readordierachel yes. I think I will be saying great things myself soon 👍🏻♥️ 3w
Cathythoughts @gradcat yes I will get the first book in the Maisie Dobbs series 👍🏻thanks for the recommendation- I‘ll bring it on holls ♥️ (edited) 3w
gradcat Oh, great! I hope you like it... I found it a bit different from the standard detective novel, and if you like it, there are at least a dozen more in the series. 🥰 3w

The Trick to Time | Kit de Waal

Posting our pics from Cork Book Festival, a great night .. so interesting to hear Ann Griffin & Kit De Wall reading & discussing their books. I felt like a real bookish kind of person. Weather was terrible ( storm Hannah ) but 3 of us braved the King Lear weather... great night ! Kit de Wall spoke of writing.. you can be a gardener or an architect ( a quote from George Martin ) .. isn‘t it a fab setting 😍pics of the whiskey tasting 👍🏻

A story of a troubled marriage & strained family relationships. I loved that Ingrid‘s letters were a “ place of truth “ : “ here , in this place of truths , I can say it “.
I also loved the part that water played : the sea , the water of the womb, the weightlessness. The fish on the road when Flora is driving home , she asks “ was it an omen? ”. I finished this last night & woke up having dreamt of water.
Thanks for this gift @TrishB

... “ It‘s difficult to live with both hope and grief ...”
Loving this book Trish ! It reminds me - what you said recently of 2 Kit de Waal‘s books : Like they were written by different authors.
This book is so very different from BITTER ORANGE... could be by another writer. It‘s unreal how far from from each other these 2 books are. SWIMMING LESSONS is on another level for me 👍🏻♥️

TrishB I loved this one ❤️💕 1mo
Cathythoughts I‘m loving it ! And I missed you & wondered if you were ok .. Litsy wouldn‘t be the same without you ( 2 days ... I am a drama queen... seriously I really am ... hope all is ok 😘😘 1mo
