It was a Classic Cold Thought: If Not for memories, then what is there left to create tomorrow if yesterday is tomorrow?
Nothing of late can be too early, and nothing too jarring is of more than real Time. And then there is the Now, an assured After, and non-assured Before.
Christopher Nolan is a note maker, note taker, and note baker. Mr Nolan understands the legacy regency affiliated with a 'MEMENTO' and in this case, a Film. Christopher succeeded with the deployment of 'boomerang ingenuity,' a script that could be read backwards and seen forward all the Same.
The difference between "What happened?" and "What did happen" raises a question above the answer,- better to lower the query to ground level, that’s where all the happenings are. And it’s there we meet the truth: generalized notions in search of specific potions to cure the cost of a memory lost.
To cool off any room, the immediate answer is AC,- not so for the smart who, unlike the rest, detest unrest, additional heat fuels the fire.
The real world is out there, in fact, just in the next room, so skip the sweeping, there’s no need for a broom. Looking is finding, and finding is discovering, with revealing not far behind. Bilateral actions are most sensitive when hosted by a lateral host, dividing two by one leaves You with one; the division of two by two leaves You with none.
As a final 'MEMENTO' I’ll leave you with This: look, listen, look again, listen, look More. This Film only makes sense for those who practice present Sense.

Serenade was created by Barbara Coney-Jenkins in response to the violence that has gripprd Chicago for years, sadly little has changed since the release of Serenade 5 Dishonor.
Voted a MUST READ by Comicskins.com in 2005
The imagery of Barbara lives up to 4E mandate of the KMC universe Entertain, Empower, Educate, and Enlighten.
Kiss Me Comix, does not want ordinary readers. KMC wants adventurers who will delve into the depths of our stories, and feel the emotion of our characters.
What emotions do you feel in this dramatic scene? (Comments encouraged)
David Baldacci dropped by the Hunt Library on #bookface Friday to talk about his new riveting, fast-moving thriller, which features a compelling new heroine. The setting is the Grand Canyon, where FBI agent Atlee Pineon is on a quest to find out what happened to a missing tourist, a dead mule, and maybe her lost twin sister? You can find "Long Road to Mercy" in our Leisure collection. Enjoy, Eagles😊
Just helped unlock the intricate plot of a wonderful domestic suspense / domestic noir manuscript during one of my 'kitchen table deep dive' sessions.
I find this genre so fascinating. It combines women's fiction with the psychological thriller; concerned with the idea that we might not really know the ones closest to us and that marriage can be a battleground for control.
It has roots in novels like Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca. There's a great anthology of short 'stories from the trailblazers of domestic suspense' edited by Sarah Weinman, called 'Troubled daughters, twisted wives'. It also makes me think of novels of eighteenth century feminists like Mary Wollstonecraft and Mary Hays. It has a touch of the melodramatic but also of feminist argument. Anyone else admire this genre? Any favourites?
10 years ago I began writing a novel which I hoped but never imagined would get anywhere. However 6 months ago I signed with an agent and just over 1 month ago I signed a 3 book publishing deal. .
My first of three psychological thrillers will be published in August in ebook, audio and paperback. .

This was hell-a creepy and intense. Another great and remarquably well made thriller although it lost its path a bit near the end when it came to explaining everything and adding a final twist. It would've been even better without these 2 elements.
Y'all! Let's help the author out and PRE-ORDER this one!!! It's coming up in my review stack and I'm so excited to read it! Posted @withrepost • @djpalmerauthor Continue to be thrilled and delighted with the early reader feedback for SAVING MEGHAN. The story is really resonating in part because Munchausen by proxy is a darkly fascinating disorder. One of the craziest cases is coming to Hulu this week as a docudrama called THE ACT starring Patrica Arquette.
Lots of you have asked you can help. I’ve got three ideas:
1. Pre-order! Pre-order! It’s SUPER important! And when you do go to this link and claim your free signed copy of THE FIRST FAMILY.
2. Post a review (ok, a favorable one) on Goodreads. Also super helpful and doesn’t have to be long.
3. Share news of SAVING MEGHAN with all your book loving friends and family.
That’s it for me. I deeply appreciate all the support. Y’all rock in my book! 4.9.19 is pub date—right around the corner now. Wowza! Thanks for all the <3 <3 (those are hearts, right?) -DJ
MOTHER begins with a murder scene under a bridge on Runcorn canal. The scene was inspired by Hilary Mantel’s opening of Wolf Hall, when Thomas Cromwell gets kicked around the cobbles (no double entendre intended) by his father. Not comparing myself to her, obvs, just sharing where the inspiration came from - it was so visceral and included sorrow and regret as well as gritty physical detail. Anyway, I took a pic of that bridge when I was in Runcorn yesterday and managed to give myself the creeps ... #psychologicalsuspense#psychologicalthriller#authorsofinstagram#bestsellers#amazonbestsellers
Peele’s building of suspense, the unnerving atmosphere he maintains throughout, the score and the performances (especially Lupita, duh) are all incredible. The third act is underwhelming, however, and that final ‘twist’ was glaringly obvious from like ten minutes in. (Well, obvious from 10 minutes, glaringly once the families come face to face.)
It’s Friday Jr. everyone!!! 🥳
QOTD: what is one series you need to finish?
I can’t believe I haven’t finished the ADSOM series 🙈 it’s been two months since I read the awesome A Darker Shade of Magic but after that the over abundance of other reads thwarted my continuation of finishing the series I’ve heard so many great things about 😭.
BUT, don’t worry, I’m going to do a V.E. Schwab month in April, starting with Vengeful (that I also need to read 🙈) and the last two books of ADSOM 😄👏👏.
READING UPDATE: um like can I get a breathalyzer test, because holy shit am I drunk with plot twists that are leaving me in a daze and I’m just getting mind fucked in EVERY. SINGLE. PAGE 🤯. I’m on the last 20 pages of The Wife Between Us and holy shit am I just dying to see if the ending with be a happy one, especially with what’s going on 😭😫🙏.
That’s all for today my lovely friends 😢.
Have a great day everyone!!!

“Once you name something, it stops you seeing the whole of it, or why it matters. You focus on the word, which is just the tiniest part, really, the tip of an iceberg.” -Alex Michaelides, The Silent Patient
Let me start by saying that I CANNOT believe that this is Alex Michaelides’ DEBUT novel! The character development, plot twists, and overall writing in this story is superb! Alicia Berenson is a notable artist, has seemingly a perfect marriage, and a beautiful home. Why, then, would she shoot her husband in the face 5 times in a row?! It’s slightly harder to get any answers when she refuses to speak a single word. Now insert Theo Faber, a criminal psychotherapist who thinks that out of all of those who have tried in the past, he has what it takes to get Alicia to speak.
The twist in this book was perfectly amazing. I did guess it about halfway through, but the way Michaelides unraveled it completely kept my attention. This is definitely what I consider a one-sitting read.
What were your thoughts on THE SILENT PATIENT? If you haven’t read it, is it on your TBR list?

It’s Hump Day people! We’re already in the middle of the week, wow 😨😆🥳
QOTD: any good news happen to you recently?
I have great news today: I GOT AN A+ ON MY PSYCHOLOGY TEST! 😆🥳
I’m like so freaking happy because, if you’ve read my captions this weekend, I was freaking out over finishing the chapters I needed to read for my test, and then actually STUDY those chapters, so I was extremely busy trying to cram my weekend to hopefully ace my test.
And I did! 😆🥳
I also lost a few weight inches and I found out after trying a shirt that fit me exactly right before but now is more loose, so I’m super happy ☺️.
And guess what?! My psychology professor asked if he can borrow The Wife Between Us when I’m done! 😆🥳 another bookworm discovery, yay! 😁
READING UPDATE: so I’m on the last 100 pages of The Wife Between Us by the brilliant @greer.hendricks and @sarahpekkanen, and omg, you guys NEED TO READ THIS BOOK 😆. It is so suspenseful and there are so many plot twists and turns that you may be left confused with what is going on in a certain point, but believe me, it all makes sense once you continue the story, which makes so much more crazier and amazing too 😍. I haven’t had a good mind fuck in like so long, and this book topped my expectations of twists to over 100 for sure 🥶😍.

4/5 🌟 REVIEW
Last month I was lucky enough to win an amazon voucher in a raffle held by @bookclubbuddies , this book was at the top of my wish list so of course I used my voucher to get a copy.
I may be the only one, but I was a little (only a tiny bit) underwhelmed. It developed really well but I guessed the big OMG moment about half way through! This may be my own fault, I do read a lot of suspense thrillers/mysteries. I didn’t guess the entire ending though and it was a fantastic story which I thoroughly enjoyed, but with all of the amazing reviews on bookstagram, I was expecting more.
I loved the chapters that switched to Alicia’s diary entries, helping the reader to understand her struggles, even though she is silent. I do enjoy stories involving asylums or psychiatric wards, to see authors explore the complexities of the human mind and how and why they think a person acts.
It had a great start and pulled me in immediately. Nice short, explosive chapters, extremely well written and gripping. Unputdownable. I stayed up way past my bed time to finish this one.
I really wanted to give this 5/5 but it didn’t make me gasp out loud. I do still highly recommend if you love a good psychological thriller!
The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides: 4.8/5 I’ve been letting my brain rest for a few days before writing down my thoughts. .
Ok—What a book! I am constantly amazed by the talent these debut authors have for their first novel. This is his first novel and I honestly could not find a single fault. It is just REALLY hard to give any book a 5/5 😆 .
Here’s the skinny 👉🏻 “One evening, Alicia Berenson’s husband comes home late from work, and she shoots him 5 times in the face and then never speaks another word. Criminal psychotherapist Theo Faber is captivated by Alicia’s story and jumps at the opportunity to work with her. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a path more unexpected, more terrifying than he ever imagined—a search for the truth that threatens to consume him.” .
First, add this to your TBR list right now. Second, choose it for your next book club book. After you’ve done that, DM about it so we can talk. Ok? Ok.
