We could have mistaken him for a king, finding him dressed in pomp and in the courts of political power.
We could have mistaken him for a judge, stumbling into him in the hallways of the courts ready to swiftly judge the guilty.
We could have mistaken him for a spiritual master, declaring himself in spiritual power by appearing in golden glowing light in the middle of a great crowd of us.
But we didn’t.
We mistook him for a Gardener, tending to creation, waiting to be discovered by any who would inquire of him.
That’s my Jesus.

What’s the last piece of book mail that you received and were so excited about? 📚
From a firefighter romance (Hot to the Touch by @jaciburton) to a psychological thriller take on ‘Sliding Doors’ (The Two Lila Bennetts by @lisaandliz) to a solid mystery thriller with a whole lot of secrets within a community following the death of one of its summer visitors (The Last House Guest by @meganlmiranda) to a historical/mythological erotica that seriously couldn’t be any hotter, because of course it’s from the one and only @tiffany_reisz 🔥👅
SO incredibly excited to crack these spines open real soon! 🙌🏼 Any one of these you’ve already read or can’t wait to read??

So a few days ago I was sexually harassed. I was curious to who it was. I narrowed it down to two suspects. Abbey and Tiffany. But before I could jump to conclusions, I had to backtrack. I couldn't find evidence to support the Tiffany theory, but I did find evidence to support the Abbey theory. It does add up, signs are pointing to her... I think I've cracked the case! D' Cas has cracked the case! #mystery#investigation#case#crackedthecase#evidence#suspects#solved
Before I start I want to say I do love weird/original movies. Movies those try to approach a story differently rather than the mainstream way.
High Life is a misfire. It started well as I was invested in the opening act. The cinematography was marvellous throughout the film. As the story progresses I found it interesting at points when they showed small flashback cuts. The thematic is clearly visible as Claire Dennis tries to make something out of ordinary. But i found myself questioning at the end that it could have been a lot better.
For instance it is scattered around all over the place. There is not a single depth given to any character. Cause it never tries to keep focus on a particular subject. This doesn't necessarily have to be in any picture. But here if u are making a weird sci fi movie you have to at least connect the loose ends in the epilogue. Not even that and we are cut to credits. There's some scene with animalistic references which I found yeah that's cool.
Mediocre decisions on the secondary characters as well as when u feel like yeah he/she might have something to be explored about just die eventually. Editing was fine. They were building blocks to something which never strike the right chords. Its very pretentious and when we are shown the present timeline you will be left wondering why were you even watching in the first place if you already knew what the ending entailed in the very beginning.
Its not a bad film but could have been a lot better. The visuals and story kept me invested but week character arc and mediocre editing with no motive whatsoever kills this for me.
Robert Pattinson keeps you watching till the very end.
Unknown item. This arrived a few weeks ago from Amazon. It’s the only thing that came in the package. We haven’t opened it to see what it is but it doesn’t match anything we ordered. Feeling through the package it feels like a small oddly shaped pebble. It’s about two inches squared. Anyone recognize what this could be? #odd#oddpackage#weird#unknown#unknownobject#mystery#mysteryobject#mysteryitem
Couldn’t put this book down. Finished it in 2 days. 🕵🏽♀️📖 11/25 — Thank you to @petermswanson and @harpercollinsus for the gifted copy. .
SYNOPSIS | Hen and her husband Lloyd have settled into a quiet life in a new house outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Hen (short for Henrietta) is an illustrator and works out of a studio nearby, and has found the right meds to control her bipolar disorder. Finally, she’s found some stability and peace.
But when they meet the neighbors next door, that calm begins to erode as she spots a familiar object displayed on the husband’s office shelf. The sports trophy looks exactly like one that went missing from the home of a young man who was killed two years ago. Hen knows because she’s long had a fascination with this unsolved murder—an obsession she doesn’t talk about anymore, but can’t fully shake either.
Could her neighbor, Matthew, be a killer? Or is this the beginning of another psychotic episode like the one she suffered back in college, when she became so consumed with proving a fellow student guilty that she ended up hurting a classmate?
The more Hen observes Matthew, the more she suspects he’s planning something truly terrifying. Yet no one will believe her. Then one night, when she comes face to face with Matthew in a dark parking lot, she realizes that he knows she’s been watching him, that she’s really on to him. And that this is the beginning of a horrifying nightmare she may not live to escape. . .
My first 5 star book of the year!
Ever since I read Sometimes I Lie, I instantly fell in love with Feeney's writing. She is just so amazing and is the master of twists!
Aimee is an actress and after having a fight with her husband, she comes home the next day and he is gone. Wallet and phone left at home, but no sign of him. The police suspect that she has something to do with it, but she doesn't really remember much. What happened?
I loved every second of it! I read it in two sitting and I finished it at 5 a.m because I could not stop reading and I wanted to know how it would end. It is told in two different timelines. One in 1988 in Essex, and one in 2017 in London. Both are linked somehow and the storytelling is so smooth.
It's so hard not fall in love with Feeney's characters. Aimee was full of secrets and everytime one was revealed, it was more shocking than the other. I don't know how Feeney does it, but she continues to succeed with her psychological thrillers.
Just like Sometimes I Lie, this one was psychological as well. It's very interesting to read books that are crazy because I always wonder how authors are able to get in that crazy mindset. I did not expect the final twist at all, and Feeney does it so well. We think we know what's going on and it seems very clear to us that this is what the twist is but nothing is as it seems.
Hooking until it's very last page, I Know Who You Are will keep you up at night flipping the pages and it is a novel that will keep you guessing until the very end. Another successful thriller from Feeney and I cannot wait to see what she whips up for us next!
Thank you to Flatiron Books for providing me with an advanced copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
These hieroglyphics were found etched into an underwater sarcophagus found beneath the Great Pyramid at Giza. These odd symbols do not fit into existing memetic representations found in tombs and seem to suggest the presence of technology yet to be created by our modern civilization.
