What a great read for chilly weather! This may be the strongest debut novel I‘ve laid my hands on. Blackåsen is a small, remote village hiding some big, filthy skeletons that you‘re most definitely going to want to dig up. My whole review is up on GoodReads if you‘re interested! :)

@FantasyChick absolutely SPOILED ME! Incredible reads, delicious treats, artisanal bath items. I cannot thank you enough!!! 🖤🖤🖤 #CreepyChristmas was such a fun event to participate in. I hope it will happen again next year!

monkeygirlsmama Such a sweet haul! I just read Verity and really enjoyed it. Horrorstor has been on my TBR list for ages. I need to find myself a copy and bump it up the queue. Thanks for the reminder! 😀 11mo
LeahBergen Omg. That bookmark!! 😍 11mo

daisyheadmaesie @FantasyChick ALSO: you were right on the money with that horror pickle ornament. I am a PICKLE FREAK!! ❤️❤️🥒 11mo
Kris10H I have read Horrorstor twice, and will likely read it again. Also great by Grady Hendrix: My Best Friend's Exorcism. 11mo

Oh my goodness, I FEEL SO SPOILED! Mr or Ms U from Nova Scotia, where you at?! Thank you, thank you, thank you for this massive #CreepyChristmas drop! So beautifully wrapped. AND THAT SOCK! 😍🖤💀 I can‘t WAIT to open them 🙊🙊

In other news, I haven‘t read a single book in almost a month now.. I finally started Hunting Party. Here‘s to getting out of my slump! ❄️

BookishTrish That looks like the work of @FantasyChick to me.... 🤓 12mo
daisyheadmaesie @BookishTrish @FantasyChick OH DANG! It was a V, not a U! My baaaaad 😅 12mo
FantasyChick Yup....that's my handiwork @BookishTrish So happy it made it there so quickly! Hope you enjoy @daisyheadmaesie 😊 12mo

I‘ve never reread a book, except for the Harry Potter series. I plan on reading it for a third time next year :)

1) My name is Mae, and one of my absolute favourite books as a kid was Dr. Seuss‘s Daisy-Head Mayzie. It‘s my username on all my bookish accounts (minus IG).

2) I‘m really thankful for my family‘s love and resilience in times of struggle. We lost our aunt today, and to see us hold each other up through loss is something I cherish.

LazyOwl Sorry for your loss 💕 13mo
JessClark78 I‘m sorry for your loss. 💔❤️ 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @LazyOwl @JessClark78 Thank you so much! ♥️ 13mo
Nute Thinking of you and your family. I know that the support of family and friends can make all the difference for getting through painful times. Take Care!💕 12mo
daisyheadmaesie @Nute Thanks so much for this message. ❤️ It absolutely does make all the difference. I hope you and your loved ones are faring well through all this craziness! 12mo

This book is NOTHING like I thought it would be... It‘s the kind of horrifying and disturbing you can‘t look away from. I‘m a third of the way through now and I love that I have NO idea what is going to happen.

Did any of you read this? What were your thoughts?

readordierachel I LOVED this one. Sucked me in and didn't let go 👍🏼 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @readordierachel Glad to hear I'm not the only one! 13mo
Reggie I really like Tremblay‘s writing. Like when he writes that Wen has her feet in the shape of a scythe and is using them to bring up grasshoppers from the yard. And then he proceeded to rip my insides out. I loved this book. Hope you like it too! 13mo

The Gentleman Thief | Kate Gragg
post image

This might be the most underrated book of 2020! A truly brilliant and hilarious fairytale.

A charismatic chimneysweep thief, living in a magical world, finds himself on the heist of his life. Picture.. Hunger Games meets Monty Python.

You now have no idea what awaits you. So just get yourself a copy now, before I slip up and give something away!

HOTPock3tt This sounds like fun! 😆 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @HOTPock3tt It absolutely was! I laughed out loud many times. 13mo

I made my bingo board thanks to @TheAromaofBooks and here are my reads for November (+ tagged book)! This would give me one bingo row.

I‘m hoping I‘ll be able to squeeze in another one, though.. The Likeness has been whispering to me from the corner of my bookshelf— in a non-creepy, very enticing sort of way.

Have you read any of these? :)

suvata I read the top two and I really enjoyed both of them, especially Daisy Jones. 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @suvata Good to know! I hope I do, too. 13mo
MsMelissa Both Daisy Jones and From the Ashes are excellent. 13mo

Participating in my first ever #bookspin / #doublespin / #bookbingo, hosted by @TheAromaofBooks !

Here are my 20! Technically there are a few ARCs in here I have to read regardless— including the book I tagged— but I‘m hoping these games will help me get excited about getting through my overflowing shelves. :)

I wanna know: What‘s one book that has been sitting on your shelf the longest? #tbrpossibility #bookban

MsMelissa I‘ve had The Far Pavillions by M.M. Kaye sitting on my TBR since 1999. I‘ve moved three times since buying it, and the book has moved with me, but I still have yet to read it 😬 13mo
MsMelissa PS - You have some great books on your bingo card! 13mo
thrillerswithgems Jar of Hearts probably is the one it‘s been on tbr the longest. Btw these all look like amazing reads. 13mo

HufflepuffGirl90 Those look amazing!!! 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @HufflepuffGirl90 I hope they will be! I‘m so far behind on the bestsellers and the hyped up books. Maybe this month I‘ll be able to get through a few more. :) 13mo
thrillerswithgems @daisyheadmaesie yes! Let‘s do it 🤗 13mo
TheAromaofBooks Yay!! Glad to have you along!! I still have unread books on my shelf that I picked up at library discard sales back in the 90s, so there's that 😂 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @TheAromaofBooks Hahaha I feel this is a trend, leftover 90s books 😂 13mo
Scochrane26 I still have at least one Maeve Binchy book that‘s been sitting since about 2003-04. 13mo

I am just loving these games 🖤

1) We didn‘t get a single kid last year.. So we‘re not expecting any again. Usually we still decorate, have spooky music playing, but the weather has been weird so we haven‘t even done that! Somebody hit the cancel button on 2020 already. 😫

2) I do on my phone. I‘m using the new iOS 14 update and remade my whole screen in a Halloween theme. 🖤🎃

Tagged a few, but I invite anyone to answer! #Two4Tuesday

DinoMom We do not get trick or treaters at our house as we live outside of the city area. My screen saver on my phone is a picture of my son in his Halloween costume from last year. He is dressed as a palaeontologist- he is dino obessed 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @DinoMom That. Is. Adorable!!! Does your son go trick or treating in the city with his friends? Or is he not big on that part of the festivities? 13mo
DinoMom He is only 5 so this is the first year we would have gone around but due to Covid we are just taking him to friends and family. Up until this year we went to our neighborhood trunk n treat. 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @DinoMom I got‘cha! Well I hope you all have fun :) 13mo

I read this book ages ago, and I still think about it from time to time. Enthusiasm was all Chanel had in the beginning; surrounded by hunger and poverty. From nothing she rose to become a household name, a societal upgrade that taught her many things about the truth behind fame and riches. If you‘re remotely interested in fashion or the WWII era, I highly recommend!

daisyheadmaesie @KVanRead Thanks for making the game :) 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @LeslieO This was the most shocking bit of information for me! The last third of the book is mostly dedicated to her time spent in occupied France and that affair. Is Sleeping with the Enemy good? 13mo
LeslieO @daisyheadmaesie Yes! I‘m enjoying it. I want to read this novel which led me to this Chanel book. (edited) 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @LeslieO Oohhh, I really enjoyed The Aviator‘s Wife from the same author! I‘ll have to make note of this one. 13mo

#dogsoflitsy This is our little (big) weirdo, Zora. She‘s majestic only when she needs to be (don‘t tell her I didn‘t pick a majestic shot for this). The rest of the time she‘s flopping backwards on beds for naps and sideways onto people for full body cuddles. She is the best reading buddy!

I want to meet your fur babies 🖤 Tell me about them in the comments, or tag me in a post! :)

BookDragonNotWorm 🥰😍 Gorgeous girl! I have a 14 year old Schnauzer mix who still thinks he's a puppy. 13mo
MsMelissa I have a 6YO miniature schnauzer named Ellie. She is currently on my lap snoozing. She‘s often timid and usually quiet, and sometimes acts more like a cat than a dog 😂 13mo

Winter Counts: A Novel | David Heska Wanbli Weiden
post image

I was fully immersed in the goings-on of the Rosebud Res, and wasn‘t ready to leave. Wanbli‘s writing had me fear the worst, while still rooting for redemption.

It‘s a story about inner conflict, corruption, addiction, systemic racism, and the strength it takes to heal yourself and your loved ones amidst brokenness. I was enamoured with the characters, especially hippie Tommy + his weird stories 😂 Really hope this becomes a series.

GardenJess I‘m hoping the same! 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @GardenJess I just read on someone‘s post that there‘s possibly a sequel coming?! Aahh!! (edited) 13mo
GardenJess Oh gosh I really hope so!!!! 13mo

#TGIF all 🙌🏻🎉 #funfriYAY challenge!

Aside from the classic Luna Lovegood 💛💚💖 I‘ve recently become obsessed with the badass thief Lila Bard from VE Schwab‘s Darker Shade of Magic series. That girl can hold 👏🏻 her 👏🏻 own. I love how non-archtype she feels. It‘s so refreshing.

I challenge those I tagged and anyone else to share the post! Who is YOUR all-time fave character?

HappilyEverKrafter I‘ve never heard of this series, but I‘m going to check it out. Thank you! 😊 13mo
thrillerswithgems This is like asking “what‘s your favorite book?” It‘s so hard to pin point just one...but let me see, Brida from Brida from Paulo Coelho. It‘s not a thriller rather very poetic book. 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @HappilyEverKrafter It‘s a great read! Somewhere between YA and adult fantasy. Rich universe, cool magic system. 13mo

daisyheadmaesie @thrillersandwine 😂😂 So true! I should‘ve known you would pick something from Coelho. :) 13mo
LiteraryinLawrence Oof. Hard question! But I‘d pick Agatha Christie‘s Hercule Poirot. ☺️ 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @LiteraryinLititz Oohh good pick! 13mo

#throwback to a few months ago, when my front lawn was my haven and the sun was my God. 😭 💔 I had a killer year for books so far, including this one that I read at the end of the summer! An incredible blend of scientific and gothic thrills. This book had my favourite trope: a massive spooky mansion in an isolated village. Do you have a story trope you never tire of?

#thrillers #fivestars

LiteraryinLawrence I think mine is similar: locked room mysteries like Agatha Christie! When you know it has to be one of these like 5 people, but you don‘t know who! 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @LiteraryinLititz Omigosh yeesssss!!! Locked room whodunnits are the best! 13mo
LeahBergen That would be a favourite trope of mine, too. I also have a thing for country house murders. 😆 13mo

daisyheadmaesie @LeahBergen Ohh interesting. I don‘t think I‘ve ever read a country house murder! Do you have a book example? 13mo

daisyheadmaesie @Avanders Exactly! It really surprised me in its profoundness, though. Some big questions on humanity. A superb read! 13mo

Thanks to @MoonWitch94 for tagging me in this challenge!

1) This year I didn‘t! But it was a blessing in disguise, because the snow has already fully covered the ground. It would‘ve looked like a giant orange raisin within a couple days. 😂😂

2) Whiite!

3) The Shining remains the book that gave me the deepest feeling of fear I‘ve had reading, ever.

Anyone can do this, but I also tagged some o‘ you #littens!

myellenbee Huh, white pumpkins aren't around in our area. I didnt know it was a choice. Any white I've ever seen are some artificial white ones in hobby stores. Do they carve and hold up the same? 13mo

CURRENTLY READING 📖 This is my first ever full-length novel on an eReader. Squeee! 👏🏻 So far I‘m quite attached to the characters. Are you an eBook or a paperback kind of reader?

BookDragonNotWorm I still love the smell of paper books but I only read e-books now so I can read in the dark, highlight passages without defacing a page, bring 100 books with me in the palm of my hand....😂 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @BookDragonNotWorm It is SO EASY, right?! But yes, there is nothing quite like the smell and feel of paper. But portability, I mean, wow. I‘m amazed at how light and simple my eReader is! 13mo

daisyheadmaesie @Smarkies I'm with you on that! :) 13mo
LeahBergen Paper books all the way for me! 😆😆 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @LeahBergen Haha it isn‘t surprising that physical books are winning this debate 😂 13mo
Texreader Both! I generally have one IRL (in real life) book, one ebook, and one audiobook going at the same time. 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @Texreader That‘s impressive! Do you have specific genres you read in each format? Or do you go about it less methodically? 13mo
Texreader This year I‘ve been very methodical because I I‘m doing so many challenges and readathons on Litsy. It‘s a blast! My fave go-to genre is historical fiction. So I go with that generally for all formats but these challenges really force you to read new genres, which mostly can be fun but sometimes really really bad when you find a style or author you really don‘t like. 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @Texreader What a great way to step out of your comfort zone! Do you have any Litsy challenges to recommend? Something I could start for next month, maybe? Dunno how soon they bring the challenges out for the upcoming month. 🤔🤔 13mo
Smarkies @daisyheadmaesie I don't do many challenges on litsy but this year I am doing the #Booked2020 one which is a whole lot of fun because it is making me read out of my wheelhouse. I also am doing the #nonfiction2020 one. I think alot of people are taking part in the screamathon one now. Just keep an eye out for hashtags. Something always comes up. 😂😂 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @Smarkies Ohh I will check those out! I have so many nonfictions that need reading, maybe I‘ll dedicate Dec to those! :) 13mo
Smarkies @daisyheadmaesie there also may be a nonfiction November challenge coming up.... There was one last year that was quite fun. 13mo
Smarkies @daisyheadmaesie check out the hashtag #nfn2020 for this year's one. 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @Smarkies Wicked! Thanks! 13mo
LiteraryinLawrence I got my first ereader earlier in the pandemic. It was when the library was still physically closed but you could borrow ebooks, and the Kindle was SO great because I had access to library books again. Now that our library is open to borrow physical books again, I‘d prefer to read a paperback, but I still read ebooks too. 13mo
daisyheadmaesie @LiteraryinLititz I feel like many people converted due to the pandemic. No more book shopping, no more sharing stuff, everything at your fingertips. :) 13mo

Absolutely devoured this book! A sister‘s love; there‘s nothing fiercer. You know the saying, I‘d help you hide the body.. Would you really do it to protect her?

Korede‘s younger sister Ayoola has got it all, adored by all who cross her path. Her biggest flaw is.. well, she‘s a serial killer. And how Korede deals with it will stay with you for a long time. I loved the pace! The setting was realistic, the characters were dysfunctional perfection.

Laughterhp I‘m just about to pick this one up! 13mo
