It was the same every morning. Wake up, grab the ice skates, and head to the rink while the world was still dark.Weekends were spent in glitter and tights at competitions. Perform. Smile. And do it again.She was good. She won. And she hated it.Poignant and captivating, Ignatz Award winner Tillie Walden's powerful graphic memoir captures what it's like to come of age, come out, and come to terms with leaving behind everything you used to know.

Here‘s my #bookspin list for February.

Three holdover #auldlangspine titles I have checked out from the library.

Plus some additional books I need to read and review this month.

Filled in the rest with #roll100 spots and some categories for mood reading. Hoping to get to all of the titles listed by name and a couple others.

I‘m letting #BookSpin choose the genres for me to read again in January. Just because it‘s more fun that way! 😄 Happy New Year and Happy Reading to the best bunch of Bookish friends! 🤗❤️🎉📚🥂
@TheAromaofBooks

marleed Oh my bookspin will be categories in 2023, as well. I‘m so excited for the numbers to be drawn. I‘m still deciding if I‘ll match a book to the numbers on the 2nd. Or if I‘ll match on the day I begin to read. Either way, I‘ve added spontaneity back to my reading! 1mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 1mo
UwannaPublishme @marleed I just checked out your categories. Awesome choices! I love the spontaneity of making a genre list too. It‘s great for us mood readers. Happy Reading to you! 1mo

Pickpick

Honest. Troubling. No surprise that navigating being a gay girl in Texas and competitive figure skating would be stressful, but there are added elements that made this a heavier read than I expected. I've never really seen the 'healthy/sane' side of competitive sport so I'm biased in my outlook, but I'm very, very glad Tillie Walden is out, and making beautiful, inclusive graphic novels. On a Sunbeam remains my fave.

October #BookSpin list! 🎉🎃🎉

I‘ve racked up a few unread Spins this year, so this month I decided to populate slots 21-25 with those that are still lingering unread. Maybe the added #BookSpinBingo motivation will help! The rest of my #BookSpin list is a combo of October-y TBRs and books to complete some challenge prompts I‘m trying to finish up (sometimes with more than one option per slot).

I laughed when I saw my #BookSpin and #DoubleSpin selections for this month! Both are books that I was supposed to read in prior months, and didn‘t.

Pat of Silver Bush was last month‘s choice for #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead and this month‘s choice, Mistress Pat, builds on that story.

julieclair The Murmur of Bees was my #ShelfofShame selection for this month. It was my final book of #LMPBC Round 14 (!), and I was supposed to have mailed it back to @sprainedbrain at the end of JUNE. 🙄 5mo

This month for #bookspin I‘m adding in a couple books by/about older women and a couple picks from the library‘s summer reading list. I‘ve already started one of those!

There are more summer reading list picks that appeal to me, but I‘ve finally learned to avoid the frustration of including books that will probably be on the hold list all month.

Also part of the mélange:
#camplitsy
#bookclub
#roll100
#authoramonth
…and other miscellaneous

kspenmoll Some of these on my TBR; others just look enticing! Great moth of reading!! (edited) 7mo
