  1. Hi Lily, just to let you know I watched the finale of Season 4 of Dexter the other day. How mental was that ending? Incredible series! Probably the best one yet. Either that or the first one. Great stuff.

  2. What is this, you are twenty now! :) ah me but you look it eh. I hope you had a little spoiling eh? Something dramtic and a itny bit magical.

  3. A belated Happy Birthday for yesterday! :balloons: Hope you had a fantastic day! :D

  4. Ah how dear to finally have the answer from you , little missing in action!. I pray God that you have been alright and blessed, oui , and happy! Merry Christmas!

  5. Hello, Wilde Lily. Just thought I'd pop in and wish you a Merry Christmas! :D

  6. The following books left a mark on my way of thinking about social issues such as poverty, equality of the sexes, racism and bigotry, and religious hypocrisy. Night by Elie Wiesel A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens Madame Bovary by by Gustave Flaubert The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William Shire A Passage to India, by E.M. Forster Washington Square by Henry James Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte Elmer Gantry by Sinclair Lewis To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  7. The best short novel of all-time ?

    My favorite: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens Also: 84 Charring Cross Road by Helene Hanff Daisy Miller by Henry James The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman The Murders in the Rue Morgue by Edgar Allan Poe
  8. Looking for French Authors

    If you like mystery novels or psychological novels I highly recommend anything by George Simenon. He's one of my top five favorite authors. His books are short intense. I always get lost in Simenon;s books from beginning to end.
  9. That sounds like a good book. I've added it to my wishlist.
  10. Never ending BOOK titles: words in common

    All QUiet on the Western Front ~ Erich Maria Remarque
  11. Thats great to hear! I enjoyed season 3 for sure but I long for the awesome days of season 1. Episode 3 of Season 4 was on the other day and I', liking the way its panning out. Back to the good old days of the mental serial killer!

  12. Here in the USA the last episode of season 4 aired on Sunday. I'm going through withdrawal! ;) Season 4 won't let you down, I promise! I envy you watching it for the first time. :)
