  • A new week & lots to be excited about, including a current read I’m *loving*: THE SUN DOWN MOTEL by Simone St. James 🕵🏻‍♀️🖤
•
I spent the weekend home in CT, celebrating the wedding of a good friend (😍❤️) and hanging out with family!! It was SO much fun, and so nice to unplug a bit and just enjoy the company of friends & family. 🥰 Now it’s back to work and back to all things CBTB, and boy there is SO much to be excited about this week. A couple of books I love go on sale this week: Lisa Unger’s excellent THE STRANGER INSIDE, and on the work front, Shaun Hamill’s debut A COSMOLOGY OF MONSTERS. It’s gonna be SUCH a good week for new books!! 🤓

I’m savoring every last bit of Simone St. James’ forthcoming suspense novel THE SUN DOWN MOTEL. Like, I honestly do not want this book to end and may be slowing down my reading just to savor it... but at the same time, I’m dying to know how it will all wrap up, so I’m in a bit of a pickle here. 😂 THE SUN DOWN MOTEL is so much fun, so spine-tingling and creepy, and SO expertly laid out. Sometimes I’m wary of books told in two different timelines, but Simone St. James is an absolute pro at weaving together multiple timelines effectively & seamlessly. It’s SO so fascinating to watch two young women - one in the 80’s, one in the present day - chase down the truth about the bizarre happenings at the Sun Down Motel. 🕵🏻‍♀️ What makes it *extra* chilling is the knowledge that one of the young women (Viv, in the 80’s timeline) will herself end up disappearing, much like the cases of the young women she’s investigating.😳 There ARE ghostly elements to this story, something to be aware of, but I haven’t found them to be at all distracting from the story’s central mystery - they’re more just part of the book’s chilling atmosphere, if that makes sense! 👌🏻

  • 2020 is going to be a *great* year for new crime fiction... Exhibit A: this beauty right here. 🕵🏻‍♀️👆🏻 I’m so thrilled to give CBTB readers a first look at Simone St. James’ new suspense novel THE SUN DOWN MOTEL, coming February 2020 from @BerkleyPub! 🔎

Anyone else remember being OBSESSED with Simone St. James’ novel THE BROKEN GIRLS last year?! 🙋🏻‍♀️ I absolutely devoured that book (if you haven’t read it yet: it’s a creepy, atmospheric suspense novel told in dual timelines, centering around a boarding school with a dark history 😳) and have been waiting for a new release from Simone St. James ever since. WELL, folks, here it is!!! 👉🏻 THE SUN DOWN MOTEL promises to deliver all the spine-tingling chills & thrills of THE BROKEN GIRLS, and then some. 🤓 This suspense read centers around a motel in upstate New York where something just isn’t quite right... and follows the niece of a woman who disappeared there years prior as she searches for the truth about her aunt’s disappearance. 😱 This book looks SO good. I’m digging into this read tonight, and thanks to the team at Berkley, YOU can dip into it tonight too with an exclusive excerpt on CBTB! 🕵🏻‍♀️ Direct link to the post in my profile! 🔎

Upstate New York, 1982: Viv Delaney wants to move to New York City, and to help pay for it she takes a job as a night clerk at the Sun Down Motel in Fell, NY. But something isn’t right at the motel, something haunting and scary... Upstate New York, 2017: Carly Kirk has never been able to let go of the story of her aunt Viv, who mysteriously disappeared from the Sun Down before she was born. She decides to move to Fell and visit the motel, where she quickly learns that nothing has changed since 1982. And she soon finds herself ensnared in the same mysteries that claimed her aunt... 😳

Who here is a Simone St. James fan?! 🙋🏻‍♀️ Anyone NOT read her yet but thinking of giving this one a try when it’s on sale? 🤓 Excited to hear from you!!🕵🏻‍♀️🖤

  • 💰Экономим в путешествии👌🏻
⠀
Парочка лайфхаков, которые помогут вам сэкономить приличные суммы💳
Сохраняйте в закладки и спасибо за лайки❤️❤️❤️
⠀
👌🏻 мало кто знает, но жильё на booking.com можно снять гораздо дешевле.
Есть 3 способа сэкономить:
1. бронировать апартаменты за сутки и меньше до предполагаемого заезда.
В это время хозяева часто скидывают цену, чтобы сдать жильё хотя бы за сколько-нибудь денег, иначе маячит простой
2. бронировать любой тип жилья (гостиницы, хостелы, апартаменты и т.д.) с привилегией “genius”.
Этот статус даётся путешественникам, которые часто пользуются букингом (более 5 бронирований за год).
Статус даёт пожизненную скидку 10% на избранные отели (даже плюсом ко всем спецпредлодениям🥰).
На некоторые отели скидка бывает и -5 и 20%.
Кроме того, статус genius обещает и другие плюшки для лояльных путешественников, а именно: бесплатное повышение категории номера, бесплатный завтрак на все время проживания, ранний заезд и/или поздний выезд, бесплатный трансфер в/из аэропорта, приветственный напиток или бесплатный Wi-Fi.
⠀
Если у вас нет статуса genius - поспрашивайте своих друзей-путешественников😉 возможно, у них статус давно уже есть и вы легко сможете забронировать жильё через их аккаунт👌🏻
Кстати, сейчас booking даёт неделю тестового пользованию статусом абсолютно всем😉
3. если у вас ещё нет аккаунта на booking - то смело регистрируйтесь, используя мою ссылку для входа. 1000₽ скидки на любое бронирование от 8000₽ ваша😌👌🏻
Ссылку можно найти в вечных сторис «скидки».
Там же лежит подарок от другого сервиса - airbnb💰
Об этом далее😉
👌🏻Airbnb - международный агрегатор частных апартаментов, где можно снять жилью напрямую у хозяина
⠀
Как сэкономить?
При первом бронировании воспользоваться скидкой 2100₽ по моей реферальной ссылке (там же, в вечных сторис «скидки»).
Далее - раздавать друзьям вашу ссылку)
За каждое завершённое бронирование вы получите 1100₽, которые сможете использовать для своих путешествий😉

  • Scegli sempre la strada che ti rende più felice.
Anche se in salita e il ginocchio ti fa male.
Domani è settembre, e consuetudine vuole che sia uno di quei momenti in cui fare un bilancio sugli obiettivi raggiunti o mancati durante l'anno, per poi darsene di nuovi (o magari li stessi).
Guardandomi indietro penso a quante cose sono cambiate in 12 mesi.
Lo scorso 31 agosto restituivo al padrone di casa le chiavi del mio appartamento a Roma.
Ci sono stati innumerevoli cambiamenti, e ce ne saranno altri in futuro!
Certo, dovrei iscrivermi in palestra e lavorare un po' meno (questo è per te @lucavax92) però posso dirmi soddisfatta dell'anno appena trascorso.
E l'unico buon proposito che mi voglio dare per il prossimo anno è di essere felice.
