#WeekendReads by @rachelsbrittain

1. L'amore è eterno finchè non risponde
Les liasons dangereuses
The neverending story (still. I know.)

2. I really can't remember 😅 I've been binge-watching Riverdale on Netflix lately, so I don't have much time left! It was probably Dirty Dancing...

3. Hot infusion, possibly with fennel seeds!

ssravp 1. Star Wars: Queen‘s Shadow
2. Captain Marvel
3. Coffee
3mo
SailorMoon @ssravp nice! How was Captain Marvel? 3mo
ssravp @SailorMoon It was great! I‘ve seen it twice! 3mo
JazzFeathers You don't like The Neverending Story? I read it a couple of Christmases ago after some 3 decades (was obsessed with it as a kid). Yes, l saw its shortcoming, but l still loved it. 3mo
SailorMoon @JazzFeathers no no, don't get me wrong!!! I like it!!! It's just that I haven't had much time to read lately, so I started an audiobook and another short paper book instead! I will be finishing it as soon as I have some time off, because the story is really catchy and it reminds me of when I was a kid! 😉 3mo

2. Ehm... I don't LOL the perks of being an adult still living with the parents 😅🤣

3. I think it'll get around 20°C here today! 🌞

4. I like to put salt on melons. If you think about it, it's not much different than eating melon and ham, like we do a lot in here!

5. Hi there! And welcome!!! @nluev @GrouchyK @greatscott551

Time for #frideas, fellow Littens!!!
I'll start! Can't wait for you to join me! 🤟🏻🌙💕

1. Italia 🇮🇹

2. USA 🇺🇸 I actually studied in California for some time, and I really want to go back!

3. Italia once again! Even though I like reading books that take place somewhere else in order to really escape for a while!

4. PASTA AND PIZZA, OF COURSE!!!
In my hometown, the typical food is the
donkey stew with polenta!

5. Love, everyone!!!

JazzFeathers I mean, donkey stew and polenta? Don't tell me you're from Veneto too! 3mo
SailorMoon @JazzFeathers ahah no no, I'm from Piemonte ? I didn't know it was a specialty from Veneto too!!! We call it "tapulone" ? and every restaurant makes it in September for the "Festa dell'Uva"... tapulone, polenta and a lot red wine!!!!!!!!!! You should come sometime!!! 3mo
JazzFeathers @SailorMoon l just might! Though l don't think l'd be able to eat it. We also have horse stew and polenta. I ate it once, l long time ago, it was good. But l don't think today l'd could, knowing it's horse. You know... 3mo

SailorMoon @JazzFeathers I totally get it. I once hate a cow's tongue not knowing it was tongue, and I actually like it! I can't eat it anymore now that I know what it is though... 😱🤯 btw the original tapulone is made of donkey's meat, but normally you get it served with beef meat. If you're ever in my area, please text! 😉 3mo
JazzFeathers @SailorMoon You bet! 😀👌 3mo
hgrimes I‘m not familiar with Ester Viola, but my ancestors are from Italia and Viola happens to be my maiden name, so I‘m very interested! I visited your beautiful country once and am determined to go back someday! 😊 3mo
SailorMoon @hgrimes sorey for my late reply! You might be related to this author, who knows? That would be an amazing coincidence!!! Where in Italia have you been, if I may ask? 3mo
hgrimes @SailorMoon Rome and Florence, all the touristy spots! I would really love to visit Sicily someday, which is where my grandparents came from. 3mo
SailorMoon @hgrimes you probably picked the two most beautiful cities here! Well, Venezia is in line with them!!! Oh Sicily is amazing, it's all sunny and colourful!!! I went there over fifteen years ago, and I have nothing but good memories! If you're ever in Italia, please text 😉 3mo

A colleague of mine suggested I read this book... eventually, I will.
Opinions? Has anyone else read it?

Elizabeth2 I read this so long ago, but I remember it being an excellent novel. At the time, Koontz was a go to author for me - I‘d read anything by him. 3mo
SailorMoon @Elizabeth2 thanks for your opinion! Have you ever read anything by Gillian Flynn? They're crime novels with a lot of psychology hints in them. I'm wondering if this is the case? Is this author this good, I am curious! 3mo
Elizabeth2 @SailorMoon I have read Gillian Flynn, and I like her. Dean Koontz is an excellent author, especially his older works (like this one). Sometimes, I can‘t read his books after dark or when I‘m alone in the house because they are that creepy. Many times his have elements of supernatural or fantasy in them, which is where he differs from Flynn. While Flynn‘s novels are disturbing they don‘t have the same edge of horror that Koontz does. (edited) 3mo
See All 8 Comments
Elizabeth2 @SailorMoon but I don‘t find Koontz as scary as Stephen King. I love the psychological thriller genre, and Koontz is very good at it. 3mo
SailorMoon @Elizabeth2 you foresaw my next question... I was wondering about it having supernatural elements in it, because I really don't like when the story doesn't stay "real" and down to earth. That's why I love Gillian Flynn so much, or Camila Läckberg. Thanks for the heads up! 3mo
Elizabeth2 @SailorMoon 👍🏻 3mo
SailorMoon @Elizabeth2 I've only read one by SK and I've been told it's the only not scary he's ever written... 11/22/63 😅 3mo
Elizabeth2 @SailorMoon I used to read King quite a bit when I was in my late teens/early 20s, but after Pet Sematary (which I couldn‘t finish) I wasn‘t as much of a fan. I did like Misery and Delores Claiborne, which are both disturbing psychological thrillers without that horror element. 3mo

I am not looking for this kind of posts on purpose, I guess the universe is trying to tell me something 🤣

Thought this one was worth sharing too!

What do you do when you feel down and to the edge of a breakdown? I normally shut down, isolate myself for a while and binge-watch a tv show... or read a book. Whatever makes me stay in bed, warm and in a cozy environment. Or I have dinner with my parents, this also helps me 💕

Naj Listening to ABBA always works for me. Other than that watching a cheesy rom-com so that I can make fun of it and feel a little better about myself 🙈 3mo
tdrosebud @Naj ABBA is soooooo awesome! I love them. 3mo
tdrosebud @SailorMoon Like you, I tend to find a cozy way to relax. Classical music, hot tea, hot bath, and a book is the usual. 3mo

Saw this on FB and thought it was worth sharing.

I've been going through a dark and rough patch in my life, but trying to accept who I am and what's happening to me and around me by admitting that "that's okay", could be a game-changer. I'll "just" have to really put my mind to it.

I would love to thank everyone for being a great community where there's no judgement, where we share common interests, where we accept each other ??

SailorMoon Plus, Litsy is making me proud of myself for reading at least twice as much as I used to due to the desire of sharing my thoughts on books and reading yours.
So... thanks. 💕

Mynameisacolour Yes! Thanks for sharing 😊 These words are helpful today!! 3mo
cathysaid Truth!!! Another one that helps me is every time I am critical of myself (and that‘s not always a bad thing) follow that thought with this one: “Now what if I overheard someone making the same critical statement to my best friend? How would I feel?” (edited) 3mo
Chrissyreadit Yes @SailorMoon can we all just shout to the universe AND THATS OK!!!!! 🙌🥰❤️ 3mo

SailorMoon @cathysaid this is so inspiring! I was told by my therapist that I also need to think of myself from the outside once in a while and consider myself as another person to give advice to. Like a best friend. I would totally feel sorry for my bff if she was just mentally hurting herself the way I do myself! Thanks for the tip, I needed to hear your story and advice 💕 3mo
KathyWheeler @SailorMoon I‘ve gotten upset with my children for hurting themselves the way I hurt myself. 😞 3mo
SailorMoon @KathyWheeler I think I would do that too, if I were a parent. I hope your kids are feeling better, or at least working on it! My parents get really mad at me sometimes for the many ways I hurt myself mentally, bu I guess it's because they feel powerless towards something only I can really do something for. 3mo
KathyWheeler @SailorMoon For me, with my kids, it is partly that I feel powerless, as you say, and partly guilt because I taught them that beating up on yourself was a thing to do. We are all working on being less harsh on ourselves. 3mo

SailorMoon @Eggs it depends on someone's expectations... I got to read it thinking it was going to be a tragic and most romantic love story, while there is just a hint of it and I didn't even find it that romantic, truth to be told. If you are looking for a wide view about Russia back in time it's a great book though. I didn't like it but still feel a little attached to it sentimentally just because I got myself to finish it 🤣 did you read it? 3mo

Utopia | Thomas More
post image

Short book by Thomas More about the fictional island of Utopia, a place where people live in peace, working for the common good and private property does not exist. A "utopic" place, in fact.
A lot of what it says it's kind of predictable, no news for us here. Consider reading it in the XVI century though and you might find why it is believed to be so innovative.
I'm just halfway through it, but so far it is really interesting!

Dio odia le donne | Sgrena Giuliana

Pickpick

Here is yet again the same #creepycover!
This book is simply mind-blowing. I had no idea of the religious legacy we still have nowadays towards women. The Sacred Books of every religion consider the woman an inferior and mere posession of the man, and religion has always been a big part of our heritage. This is why we have to fight so hard now to make ourselves be considered as equal. This is why we sometimes don't consider ourselves as equal 👇🏼

SailorMoon I am not against religion. I am an atheist, but I respect every religion and people who believe in it. I still think that everyone should read this book, though. You can be a true Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, whatever and still read this book, because it's not against religion... it's against how religion has considered women through the ages. It's really mindblowing. 3mo

Dio odia le donne | Sgrena Giuliana
post image

I started this today, and I'm already 1/2 through it. I'm pretty positive it hasn't been translated in English yet, but the title is "God hates women". It's volutarily provocative, meaning that it tries to explain our cultural roots through religion and how it still impacts us not only in positive ways such as "don't steal, turn the other cheek, etc".
It goes deep into infibulation, menstruation, patriarchal hierarchy... it's sadly interesting.

I've just finished listening to the audiobook of Victor Hugo's "Notre Dame De Paris", and I have to admit I might be too biased to review it properly.
I absolutely ADORE the musical, I know it by heart (I even have a quote tattooed on my ankle!)... it was about time I got around to "read" the book!
It's pretty dreary when it comes to descriptions, but as for the rest... it's a great story of love, hate, lust and... Paris.
I strongly recommend it!

Idk if this is a game or just you answering the questions out loud... but I'd like to play!

Well, I like spending my time binge-watching tv series in another language, so I feel justified in doing nothing because I am also learning something 🤣

As for the MAIN occupation though, I am one of those few lucky people who love their job. I am a pattern maker and I really love that I get to do what I do everyday! 💕🤟🏻

SW-T Awesome! 😊 4mo
Chelseabillups30 @SailorMoon, sometimes I put my own responses to the question within the caption, if I think of the answer off the top of my head before posting it, but sometimes I can‘t think of something right away (or at all)....so it just depends!! People have been answering with their own responses in the comments on my posts so far, you‘re the first one I‘ve seen do it this way thus far! 4mo
Chelseabillups30 Also, what exactly does a pattern maker do? Are we talking illustration? Fabrics? Do tell! 4mo
See All 9 Comments
SailorMoon @Chelseabillups30 OMG I'm sorry, I got it all wrong 😱🤯 I will comment on your post next time! Btw your question is totally legit, I did not specify what kind of pattern maker I am... I work in fashion, so yes a lot to do with fabrics LOL it's amazing, although I now see clothes as work, therefore I can't enjoy shopping anymore (which is good for my wallet!!!!!!!!)! 4mo
Chelseabillups30 @SailorMoon, it‘s really fine!! More work for you if you screenshot and repost though, lol. Whatever you want to do. 4mo
Chelseabillups30 And I can definitely see how you‘d get tired of clothes shopping after doing things with patterns all day! So does that require a lot of drawing? Sewing? How did you land on that as your day job? 4mo
Chelseabillups30 And when you do go shopping, do you find yourself making judgements inside your head like, “That looks terrible together!” Or “That‘s the most beautiful combination I‘ve ever seen!!” or do you save those types of reactions for your work? 4mo
SailorMoon @Chelseabillups30 thanks for your interest 💕 well it does require a lot of drawing, although it's mostly done through computer softwares now! I landed on this path because my family (from my great-grand parents to my grandparents, my parents and other relatives) has always worked in the field, so I was kind of born into it, even though my interest has developed kind of late... I wanted to be a journalist back in university! 4mo
SailorMoon @Chelseabillups30 I don't normally judge based on my personal taste... I don't judge at all because I see the gard work that is hidden behind even a simple t-shirt. What I do is be more aware of what I buy: I look for good hems, good sewings, good fits and stuff like that 😉 what do you do for a living? 4mo

So much I loved him in the Disney version, so much I hate him now that I'm "reading" Notre Dame De Paris.
He loves Esmeralda, but runs to Fleur-de-lys as soon as he realizes she is going to be hanged so he can't have her anymore. She is incriminated for his murder, and he doesn't even have the decency to show up (like "hey there! I'm alive!") and save her. At least for now.
I hope his character will turn out to be better than he is right now.

Today's progress on Notre Dame De Paris.
Not bad. Not bad at all! ??

(I had a lot of time in the car, driving back and forth from work to a doctor's appointment)
I am getting used to audiobooks, I can "read" twice as much now that I listen to them in the car!

Birdsong28 I wasn't really into audiobooks till I came on here and I totally agree with you that you can read twice as much. I walk back and forth to work so it's 20 mins each way that I 'read' so it's making use of that time more efficiently. 📚📖 4mo
paulfrankspencer Thank you for putting that in quotes. I don't want to step on any toes, as I know it's a hot debate and listening to a book is better than not, but listening is a totally different experience from reading. 4mo
SailorMoon @paulfrankspencer I totally agree with you. Two different experiences, although what's important (in my opinion) is that the books are still enjoyable... no matter what. I will keep quoting this "audiobook reading" thing. 4mo
See All 13 Comments
paulfrankspencer @SailorMoon yep. And enjoyment comes from why you're reading in the first place. I personally don't read for story so much. I read for the writing. So listening to an audiobook completely defeats the purpose of reading for me. For others, it's exactly what they're looking for. Different priorities, and that's ok. 4mo
SailorMoon @paulfrankspencer I know what you mean. There are books that I prefer reading on paper because I like the author's style, or because I want to improve my grammar, or even because I feel like it's something I want to focus more my attention on (like for thrillers). Some other books I just like listening to for the sole purpose of knowing the story. May I ask you if you have a job book-related? Or is it "just" passion what I read between the lines? 4mo
SailorMoon @Birdsong28 same here!!! I have to drive 2h back and forth to go to work... so I can now use my time more efficiently as you said!!! 4mo
Birdsong28 @paulfrankspencer I think you get the tone of words/sentences better on an audiobook as the tone sometimes doesn't come through on the page so you miss out on how the author meant it. So you get a better sense of the story as how the tone comes across can change the perception of the story and what the reader gets out of it. 4mo
paulfrankspencer @SailorMoon my full-time job is not at all book related. But I write, edit, and publish on the side. Someday it's gonna be my main gig. That's the idea, anyway. So yes, reading is kind of part of my job and I take it seriously. 4mo
paulfrankspencer @Birdsong28 I think that's half the fun of reading, too. Determining the tone for yourself based on the words. Or accepting the ambiguity of tone of written word. It's difficult to maintain that ambiguity when the words are spoken. Then again, hearing someone else read it could very well introduce you to a way of reading that you wouldn't think of otherwise. There are benefits to both and we can keep talking in circles on this topic. 4mo
SailorMoon @paulfrankspencer exactly. When it all comes down to this, I usually go for a "de gustibus non disputandum est". I agree with you that deciding the tone is half the fun of reading. Although, I also like when there is no ambiguity to it... so when it's read by someone else. I guess it depends on the book. I hope your writing dreams will come true. Is there anything published online I can look up, if you don't mind me asking? 4mo
paulfrankspencer I post to a blog at bgfg77.com. Lots of different stuff on there. I've also written a couple books, both non-fiction. I'll turn to fiction next, I believe. 4mo
paulfrankspencer @SailorMoon I'm flattered that you ask. Thanks! 4mo
SailorMoon I'll make sure to check the blog from time to time, thanks for sharing!!! Nice talking to you, going to sleep now! Good luck! 4mo

SailorMoon
Notre Dame de Paris | Victor Hugo

This quote I feel really connected to, though I do not completely agree.
I almost completely lost the sight from an eye after a car crash, but I feel blessed everyday to still be here and be able to see with the other one.
So yes, I DO know what I am lacking, but I am also grateful for what I still have. I don't think it's fair to compare my difficulties to the ones a blind person faces everyday.
We should all count our blessings, not our losses.

SailorMoon This doesn't mean I never allow myself to feel blue or depressed over it. It just means that I now appreciate more what I have instead of taking it for granted. Everyone should be free to feel blessed or blue as much as they need and want! 4mo
MallenNC My mom lost sight in one eye in an accident when she was a little girl (maybe 3). She said she said her mother if everyone else saw two of everything. I don't think she'd agree with this quote either. She's grateful for her healthy eye. 4mo
SailorMoon @MallenNC I am so sorry for your mom, I totally sypmathize (if it's the right word for it!) with her! But you know... the human body can be truly amazing sometimes and help you get used even to big changes such as this one. So I guess we should agree to disagree with the author on this quote! 4mo
SailorMoon @MallenNC we could apply it to any other context though... like a person who's been in love before and has lost it probably suffers more because of the lack of it than a person who's never been in love. I guess! 4mo

3. Done!
4. Anytime. Usually lunch break or after dinner
5. Idk 😅 pasta probably!!

TrishB I was about to go wow 😮 what a house! 4mo

#frideas Saturday Edition! Sorry, I had some personal stuff going on yesterday. Thanks for the love 💕

1. Fiction, but I want the facts in the background to be historically accurate
2. 11/22/63 by Stephen King. It talks a lot about jumping through times, and it has a lot to do with history. A wonderful reading tbh!!!
3. Must have been science, I liked it but I sucked 😅
4. French and Russian Revolution

See you tomorrow, Littens 💕🌙

Wish You Were Here | Pink Floyd

What a nice idea!!!
#MarchIntoThe70s! @Lizpixie @Cinfhen

Day1: "Wish you were here"
I can't really think of a book connection, so I will go with a personal anecdote: back in HS, one of my professors was a huge Pink Floyd fan (she was definitely a daughter of the '68!)... so she turned her class into a Pink Floyd session for an hour each week, and made us study the lyrics and the music from some of their albums! It was amazing!!!

Lizpixie Wow. I wish I had that teacher. Though, my 4th grade teacher,when I was 9, was in a band & once a week after lunch, we‘d all sit on beanbags in the corner and he‘d play his guitar & teach us songs. I learnt a lot of The Beatles, Bob Dylan, folk songs & others.🎶🎵🎸 4mo

#HelloThursday @wanderinglynn

1. Warm weather and less layers of clothes needed, so I don't go crazy over deciding how many coats I should wear on top of each other (I'm at two right now)
2. That it's not summer yet 🌴
3. Not sure...
4. ...do the same things I've been doing the rest of the year: I kind of like spending my free time at home either binge-watching something or reading! Maybe I could read in the closest park this time?
5. Done!

1000 FOLLOWERS!!! Thanks everyone!!!
Time for a #giveaway!

I can't really send you a box because it is way too expensive from Italy... nor I can buy you an e-book and send it to your account (it's not yet an option on the Italian Amazon). So I was thinking to give a 5€ Amazon gift card to one of you... of course you should promise me to buy yourself a book with it!!!
(If it is against Litsy policy, please let me know)
Keep on reading: 👇🏼

SailorMoon This gift card will be sent to the Litten who writes here in the comments the quote that I will like the most. It doesn't matter if it's from a romantic, comic, mystery, etc book. It can be literally about ANYTHING. I will see whichever is the catchiest to me... this way I will also get new suggestions for books to read 😉 good luck and thanks in advance to everyone who'll be playing along!!! 4mo
SailorMoon I will announce the winner tomorrow evening (Italian), so you have till tomorrow afternoon (6pm Italian) to enter! 4mo
