Looking forward to finishing Pet Food Politics. It‘s a good read, but depressing & frustrating. For my next #LitsyAtoZ book, choosing a NF dog book to help me connect even more with our two goobers. Throwing in April Henry for some popcorn goodness.

#bookreport #weeklyforecast combo

This week I completed:
📖 The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle
🎧 Crisis In The Red Zone

I‘m behind on reviews as usual.

I spent most this weekend distracted and consumed all 353 minutes of Ms. Fisher‘s Modern Murder Mysteries, but I‘m currently reading:
📖 An Unkindness of Ghosts
🎧 The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

My upcoming books are on the right. 🙂

Cinfhen Great graphics and fabulous week!!!! I started listening to the Backman but it was making me SO SAD. I had to stop 🛑 5d
Bookzombie @Cinfhen Thank you! I‘m kind of worried about the level of sad on that one. 😕 5d

#weeklyforecast @Cinfhen

I‘m about halfway through Traveling Cat, and I have to say Joy Luck feels like a good pairing with it (I‘m listening to Joy Luck on audio, and am at about 20%.)

I really don‘t know what I‘m going to pick up next. I‘m kind of feeling like a chunkster... we‘ll see!

Cinfhen I bet Joy Luck is good on audio!!! Traveling cat is lurking about my TBR 😝 5d

It‘s almost midnight, so it‘s almost Sunday and time for the next #weeklyforecast. My goals for this week are to reach page 401 in The Three Musketeers for my #YearofDumas, maybe finish the audiobook of Forty Rules if I can stomach the narrator (or bail), finish the digital ARC I just started, and at least start another of my tailored book recommendations #TBR. Still not sure which one I feel like reading. 🤔🤷🏻‍♀️

Cinfhen Ohhhh, lots of good options in that corner 😻 6d
Cinfhen I thought this one was really fun 6d

#weeklyforecast late edition

These are my current reads and I don‘t think I will start anything new. The two print books are from my #newyearwhodis list.
📖 The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle - just slightly over 100 pages to go. If I can stay awake I might finish it tonight.
📖 An Unkindness of Ghosts - almost to the halfway mark
🎧Crisis In The Red Zone - 26% completed

Cinfhen How‘s the audio???? I‘m really curious about it!! 2w
Bookzombie @Cinfhen I love Ray Porter as a narrator, but I do feel like it‘s dragging a bit at times. I‘m going to give it a little longer and see if it picks up, then maybe go back to print later. Could also just be me. Lol. 2w

Last week was not easy, and my reading has been a little off as I had trouble concentrating. But hopefully I‘m back on track now.

I‘ve been reading Us Against You this morning for #AuthorAMonth.
I started Acid for the Children 🎧 Friday on my commute. This may be my favorite title of the year, even if the book itself isn‘t. ❤️Flea

I‘m not sure whether I‘ll start America for Beginners or Sparrow Sisters next.

Lizpixie Loved The Sparrow Sisters! If you loved Practical Magic & Garden Spells, you‘ll love that too.🌱✨ 2w
Cinfhen I started with the audio for Acid With Children but I actually found Flea‘s voice grating AF 🤪so I bought a print copy but haven‘t started it yet 2w
Soubhiville @Cinfhen I wasn‘t sure I‘d be able to handle the writing style, but I‘m actually doing ok with it. He‘s not a great narrator but I appreciate that it‘s him reading. I hope when you return to it you‘ll like it better. 2w

BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @Soubhiville It ends in the 80s, just after the first RHCP gig (‘Out In LA‘). But to me it didn‘t matter, the book was great. I am hoping for a sequel of course 😀 (edited) 2w

DGRachel @teainthelibrary Book Reports and Weekly Forecasts were started by @Cinfhen a couple months ago. Basically, on Sunday, you post the books you want/plan to read for the next week with the #weeklyforecast tag and the following Saturday, you post your results using #bookreport (what you finished, whether or not you liked it, how much progress you made in something you haven‘t finished, etc). That‘s it! 😊 2w

DGRachel @JulAnna I first read TEOTD in high school and I reread in print sometime in my late 20s, I think. I‘ve tried and bailed on the audio at least twice in the last 10 years, but I know I don‘t have time/space in my January TBR to read it in print and I really wanted the refresher for #LosersClub. At least the narrator isn‘t so bad that he totally ruins the book for me. (edited) 2w

My #weeklyforecast is a tale of two weeks. I want to finish my January ARCs by the end of the year and my current audiobook. I may listen to the next Agatha Christie on my list, but only if I have enough time to finish it Tuesday. I don‘t want to carry it over to 2020. To start 2020, I want to finish The Blue Eye, listen to The Eyes of the Dragon, and start my personal 2020 challenge with The Three Musketeers.

Week 9 #WeeklyForecast
Finish up my 4 books in progress and knock out a few more #NetGalley #ARCs
My #BookishResolution2020 BE MORE CONSCIENTIOUS with my requests😜

Happy Holidays friends 💟☮️

BarbaraBB I don‘t know much about NetGalley but do you want to read all those ARCs or do you have to? 4w
Cinfhen Publisher‘s provide complimentary Advanced Readers Copies (ARCs) of books in exchange for unbiased reviews @BarbaraBB so it‘s in good faith to read a book that you‘ve been granted access too. But sometimes a cover or blurb catches my eye but the book doesn‘t hold my attention and then I feel trapped. Sometimes publisher‘s send you books without a request in hopes of spreading excitement or to gain exposure. It‘s a wonderful perk in moderation😁 4w
TrishB Good plan 👍🏻 4w
See All 18 Comments
BarbaraBB Aha. But moderation is hard I guess because you keep asking for books and then have to read them? 4w
julesG @BarbaraBB Moderation is sooo hard, especially since you never know which book you'll be approved for. So if I ask for 10 books, I'm expecting 8 refusals, but end up with 9 ARCs. 4w
Cinfhen Yes @BarbaraBB and what @julesG said ☝🏾😜 4w
BarbaraBB @julesG @Cinfhen The pressure must be killing 😉 4w
megnews I really liked Saint Mazie. 4w
Cinfhen I‘m liking it too @megnews BUT it‘s so different from her other novels ~ this is straight up HF 4w
megnews @Cinfhen my favorite genre, which may explain how I‘ve read this one and wasn‘t familiar with her others. 4w
Sace Oh...are we doing resolutions? I've definitely got some for myself! 4w
Sace Also....moderation is not my forte. I am tempted by NetGalley but I know that that road leads to madness. 4w
Cinfhen Resolutions and moderation seemed appropriate @Sace 😜 4w
4thhouseontheleft Some of the reasons above is why I‘ve largely stopped requesting ARC‘s on NetGalley. I always bite off more than I can manage! 4w
Cinfhen Yea, it‘s starts to feel like an albatross @4thhouseontheleft 4w
Daisey I‘ve had to learn to be very careful on NetGalley. I tend to limit myself to one session of browsing and no more than 5 requests until I know what will be approved. Then browse again after I write a review. 4w
Cinfhen I like your system @Daisey !!! That‘s gonna be my new approach too!! 4w

It‘s midnight-ish, so here‘s my #weeklyforecast for Christmas week. I‘d really love to clear out my NetGalley queue (just four books left). I have another Christmas cozy mystery audiobook lined up for Monday, and then I‘ll have to pick something else to listen to Thursday and Friday, but I‘ll stress about that later. And if things go really well, I‘d like to finish The Blue Eye and at least start American Dirt. #dreambig

I‘m working overtime this week and having family over on Saturday, so I‘m just going to stick with the books I‘m currently reading this week. I‘m not very far along in any of them.

Cinfhen Reasonable decision 💖😊 1mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen Thanks! 😊 1mo

Two very different books planned this week. I started the Baldacci last night - love the Amos Decker series.

Like @Cinfhen I‘m struggling with what to read - I‘m worried that I‘ll read something for one of next year‘s prompts! 🤣

I‘ll also (hopefully) finish The Rabbit Girls on Kindle, and I may then start The Hunting Party as @TrishB liked it!

TrishB That Decker series is one I‘ve always thought I should read! I went to have a look at The Rabbit Girls and I already have it 🤷‍♀️ 1mo
TrishB Hope you like The Hunting Party now! 1mo
squirrelbrain @TrishB - definitely try Decker - he‘s fab! I think The Rabbit Girls was a Kindle First or at least a 99p book - that‘s why we all have it! It‘s very good but two very hard storylines. 1mo
Hooked_on_books I really liked The Hunting Party, too. 1mo
Cathythoughts I know aware of next years prompts now too 🙃🤣... it won‘t be long till the new year 1mo

#WeeklyForecast Week 7

December is a weird reading month for me/ as I sit on books I REALLY want to read waiting for Jan 1 to begin reading them towards challenges.

I just started top three and all are engaging but I‘m not pulled in yet and bottom 2 are books I need to read for #NetGalley but I can‘t seem to muster the enthusiasm.

Librariana Such a Fun Age looks... well... fun! 😁 Cover design is pretty snazzy 🌟 Hope the mood strikes for the two galleys and that you thoroughly enjoy the reading week ahead 😊💜📚 1mo
Cinfhen Thank you!!! I‘m just a moody reader and I‘m in one of those bleh bleh meh meh moods @Librariana 😝 1mo
TrishB I‘m about to go and look at my choices! Very unusually for me nothing is leaping out. 1mo
Cathythoughts Good luck with them all ... must pick out mine now too 🤔 1mo
squirrelbrain Ha! Was just about to post that exact thing about December / January reads.... 😁 1mo

As usual I‘m late. 😬 Since I made the graphic I actually finished Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy and Killer Instinct. The Witches should be in the “in progress” section now. 🤷🏼‍♀️

I‘m off today and tomorrow so I‘m hoping to finish The Gauntlet, complete Beneath a Meth Moon (it‘s under 200 pages), and start Midnight Taxi Tango. This will depend on if I‘m distracted by catching up on Litsy or movie watching. 😉

Chrissyreadit How was Liar Temptress? 2mo
Chrissyreadit How was Liar Temptress? 2mo
Cinfhen 😂 Enjoy your days off ♥️ 2mo
Bookzombie @Chrissyreadit I enjoyed it. Four very interesting women. I sometimes wished I had a visible timeline to glance at because sometimes on audio dates are harder to keep up with. 2mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen Thank you! Just saw Knives Out, which was really good. 2mo

I'm intending to continue reading what I started for #NFNov and my #BuddyRead with @DuckOfDoom. Then there are a few (cough 27 cough) ARCs and a few books that I've wanted to read ever since I got them.

Cinfhen Oh, your ARC number makes me feel better about mine 😂😂😂 2mo

#BookReport
It has been a slowwww reading week for me! Only managed one book! 😭
Finished Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil. ✅

#WeeklyForecast
🤷‍♀️ I don‘t think I can read as much as I want to..it‘s the schools‘ year-end break until first week of Jan, so will be spending more time with the kids/family, going for a short holiday. But for a start in Dec, I hope to read for #Booked2019 - one more book and my challenge is complete.

Tonton Christmas Days by Jeanette Winterson stories and recipes for the 12 days of Christmas! 2mo
squirrelbrain Only one book to go! Yay! What are you going to choose for that prompt? 2mo
erzascarletbookgasm @squirrelbrain too many options! 😆 I‘ll walk along my bookshelves and see what catches my fancy. 2mo

erzascarletbookgasm @Tonton that book sounds good, perfect for the holiday season! Stacked! However I need to read one published this year. 😊 2mo
Cinfhen You saved the BEST prompt for last 🎉🎉🎉 2mo
