At once comic, heart-breaking, and life-affirming.Tish Cohen, author of Town HouseImagine if Bridget Jones fell into a million little pieces, flew over the cuckoos nest, and befriended Lindsay Lohan along the way, and you are beginning to grasp the literary roller coaster ride that is Catherine McKenzies Spin.Leah McLaren, author of The Continuity GirlHow far would you go to get what you wanted? Thats the question author Catherine McKenzie addresses in Spina delectable debut novel that takes readers into the connected worlds of pop culture, tabloid journalism, and celebrity rehab. The story of a newbie undercover gossip reporter who follows a troubled starlet into a rehab clinic intending to dig up all the dirt she possibly can, Spin is smart, hip, utterly engaging contemporary fiction in the vein of Jennifer Weiner and Emily Giffin.

Haven‘t achieved a #bookspinbingo yet but I can‘t stop trying! Making the list at the beginning of the month (and picking my first book on the morning of the 2nd) might be the best part!

My #bookspin list for April. It is heavy on the Women‘s Prize Longlist as I‘m still, naively, trying to read them all. Maybe this is the month for a bingo?!

February was a bad reading month but I‘m going to just accept it and move on. At the end of this week, I leave the harrowing job I have been in for 10 years and then have a 2 week staycation before starting a whole new chapter in my life. Whilst there are many things I *should* do during that vacation, I‘m going to trying to give myself permission to do what I *want* to do instead. This is the list! #bookspinbingo

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! Here's to new beginnings!!! 9mo

July involves a road trip to Lake Louise so I‘m using this as a reason to focus on kindle books this month. I‘m so bad at buying kindle daily deals and then never looking at my kindle. There are some great books here! #bookspin #bookspinbingo

TheAromaofBooks I've been working on actually organizing my Kindle books with the aid of a home library app. I'm hopeful that it will help me READ those books instead of just adding to them!! 1y

My #bookspinbingo for February! I didn‘t get a bingo or read my book spin book last month but it motivated me to have one of the best reading months for a long time. So I‘m at it again!

Singout 1, 17 and 18 are excellent! I had a serious fantasy when doing my English undergrad in the 80s about doing deeper studies into Timothy Findley. 2y

I almost wasn‘t going to do this this month but I just can‘t resist! The bit I struggle with the most with #bookspinbingo is making the bingo board and finding a way to visually tick off the books I‘ve read to show you. What do other people use to do this?

TheAromaofBooks Glad to have you along for another round!! I personally draw out a bingo board, and then fill in the numbers when I draw them. I use stickers to mark them off as they get completed. Some people write in the titles & lots of people also do some magical computer thing where they make a board that way (I'm not that skilled haha). I also have a few people who save the board that I post on the 2nd & then use photoshop or whatever to mark books off!! 2y
LiteraryinLawrence One month I did the board in black and white and then colored in the square when I‘d read a book. A different month I colored in the board up front and then just drew an X over a square when I‘d read it. This month I am using washi tape to make the grid rather than drawing. Anything goes! 2y
LiteraryinLawrence I thought of one more thing. 😋 Searching the hashtag #bookspinbingo will show you lots of people‘s boards and give you more ideas! 2y

@TheAromaofBooks I read 4 books for #booskpinbingo last month. Which I thought was pretty good seeing as I also moved house during July. But I didn‘t post about any of them here. I‘m going to try better this month and do so love #bookspin! On a related note, does anyone have any recommendations for an app that I can use to make a bingo card with all my books filled in? I‘m learning as I go with Litsy!

TheAromaofBooks That's great progress, especially while moving!! I can't help you on the app... I still print mine out and tape them in my journal old school! 😂 2y

My June #bookspin was a dismal failure so let‘s try this again. My house move is coming up faster than expected (2.5 weeks!) so these are all books from my kindle. It seems unlikely that I‘ll have a lot of time for reading but I really want to try to carve out time where I can for my own mental health. Good luck to the other bookspinners!

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! Good luck on the move! When we were first married we spent our first five Christmases in five different houses!!! I was glad to leave those days behind haha 2y
KatieB @TheAromaofBooks Ugh! I don‘t know how you survived! 2y
TheAromaofBooks @KatieB - Best thing I ever did was buy some sturdy milk crates for moving books! 😂 Luckily they were all close moves, so I never had to do the thing where every single thing has to be packed up at the same time and put on a truck! 2y

At long last, my May #bookspin stack! I‘m attempting the #bookspinbonanza so it took some serious thinking to come up with 20 I could actually read in a month. Some are for finishing challenges or a readalong, and the kiddo gladly assigned me enough to complete the list (and help keep it manageable, as they‘re all MG). Titles in comments. Can‘t wait to see what the book gods reveal tomorrow, @TheAromaofBooks !

ImperfectCJ My children assign books to me, too. :-) My #bookspin for April was recommended by my daughter and the #triplespin was a suggestion from my son. 3y
ravenlee And here, after many distractions, is the list (asterisk indicates assigned reading): 1 - Sense and Sensibility with the #PemberLittens ; 2 - Once Burned; 3 - Temptation of a Proper Governess; 4 - Raven‘s Strike; 5 - Neuromancer; 6 - Wish Fairy 1 Too Many Cats!* 7 - Zoey & Sassafras 2 Monsters and Mold* 8 - The Blood of Olympus; 9 - Heroes in Training 4 Hyperion and the Great Balls of Fire*; 10 - Goddess Girls 5 Athena the Wise* 3y
ravenlee 11 - Like a River Glorious; 12 - Princess Beginnings 3 Ariel Makes Waves*; 13 - Kitty 1 Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue*; 14 - Seventeen Against the Dealer; 15 - The Boxcar Children 1*; 16 - Ada Lace 2 Ada Lace Sees Red*; 17 - Shakespeare by Bill Bryson; 18 - Thief Knot; 19 - Eleanor & Park; 20 - A Thousand Beginnings and Endings 3y

Karen3 I‘m coming in so late to the game. What is books spin? I‘m seeing it all@over my feed. Very curious. 3y
rockpools @TheAromaofBooks I‘m seriously like a kid at Christmas with this for some reason. Couldn‘t cope with the suspense of not knowing if it‘d be today or tomorrow. Little things!! 🤗 3y
rockpools @Karen3 Hello! Choose 20 books off your own shelves (or kindle/audio) that you‘ve been meaning to read for ages. Post a numbered list to @thearomaofbooks and she‘ll draw random numbers to let us know which we‘re reading this month. I‘m sure Sarah will give a better explanation when the US wakes up - but it‘s fun! 3y
TheAromaofBooks @Karen3 - yes!! @RachelO is exactly right - you choose 20 books you've been meaning to read - old books from your TBR - new shiny books on your shelf you haven't gotten to yet - Kindle books you don't even remember buying - however you want to choose them is totally up to you!! Post your list & tag me when you do. I'll tag you when I draw the number tomorrow & sometime in April read that book & let me know. Every time someone reviews a #bookspin 3y
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) book, I check their name off which equals one entry for the end-of-the-year drawing I am hoping to have. Every month I draw two numbers (the second is known as the #doublespin) so some people try to read both books. Since so many people are stuck at home right now, I'm actually drawing three books for April, but you can read as many or few as you want! Let me know if you have any questions & tag me if you post a list!! @Karen3 3y
TheAromaofBooks @RachelO - So I will confess to you that I genuinely have to restrain myself from drawing the numbers early (and taking pictures of them) just so I can know which books I'm going to be reading! 😂 3y

Numbered from the top down. I read five of February‘s list, including both the spin and doublespin picks, and moved another to a different stack, so there are six new choices here. Looking forward to seeing next month‘s picks!

Irony=reading a book about a 30yr old's rehab stint for alcoholism while getting an iron infusion due to a rare, auto-immune liver disease (PSC) that means I haven't touched alcohol in the past 4+ years.Slow going at the start but actually ended up being quite engaging (and I learned about rehab!).

kdwinchester Autoimmune diseases suck. 😕 Glad you got in some good reading time though! 6y
laurabradburywriter Thanks @kdwinchester ! The nurses are always so nice to chat with too. Yes, autoimmune stuff sucks big time. Such a mystery to the docs. 6y

This is a good light read, especially if you enjoy stories about flawed characters finding their way. Narrator Kristi Burns was okay. I had a hard time differentiating the main character's inner dialog from true dialog. Palate cleanser.
