Bk7 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 & Bk3 of #JoyousJanuary #readathon is done. The 4th in the Cormaran Strike series, it isn‘t my favourite so far but it was still a good read. A mentally unwell young man asks Strike & Robin to investigate his memory of a murder. Lots of twists & turns & the interplay between Robin, her new husband & Strike was also entertaining. #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #BeatTheBacklist #ChunksterChallenge #ShelfOfShame👇

Bk6 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done. It‘s also the 2nd for #JoyousJanuary #readathon & my #Bookspin for January. Yay! Finally finished another book, my stats for Jan are awful so far. Though most were over 500pgs. I loved this the 1st time I read it & this time was no different. Very different from what he‘s famous for, both the plot & characters were well thought out & wonderful to read. Highly recommend. #BookspinBingo #LitsyAToZ2022👇

Bk5 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done. Wow. I blew through this in a day, I guess the day off was productive after all! I absolutely loved this 2nd book. Even though the MCs were different, it had a few side characters in common & the world it‘s in. Set in the HUGE Core General Hospital, it‘s about a rescue specialist doctor who has to save the entire hospital habitat from an insane computer virus. Fantastic! #BookspinBingo #Pop22👇

Bk4 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done. Finally! Haven‘t had time to read with the cleaning but I got there in the end.Fantastic space opera,the start of a new series it‘s full of beautiful imagery & space facts. There‘s a section that talks about the SuperMassiveBlackHole at the centre of the Milky Way that was brilliant. The characters & the story were both well written & interesting. Highly recommend. #BookspinBingo #Pop22 #ReadHarder22👇

Bk3 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done! I first started this before Xmas but wasn‘t in the mood for it, picked it back up last night & flew through it today. A Cold War spy thriller set in the Apollo missions, it‘s written by real astronaut & Canadian nice guy Colonel Hadfield who has the experience to add the details that make it believable.🚀I highly recommend⭐️ #Booked2022 #InvolvesAnExploration #Pop22 #BookspinBingo #SpaceTimeReads👇

Bk2 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done. I was having trouble settling on a next read so decided to reread the last in the All Souls trilogy in prep for the new season of the TV series on Saturday. I love this cover so much, these editions are gorgeous with a main location on the spine & front of each book(Oxford,Elizabethan London & Venice I believe)While it was a bit disjointed, I still enjoyed the wrap up of the story arc. #BookspinBingo👇

Bk1 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done! And it‘s Bk3 of #NewYearSpecial #20in4 #readathon. Plus I got a ton of #audiojournaling RC for this year & this crossed off a few prompts already🙌I freaking loved this book! I highly recommend the audiobook, read by Dave as he‘s so funny & personable, it‘s like having a story told by a mate over a few beers. Awesome man, awesome writer.❤️ #NonFictionBingo2022 #Roll100 #Pop22 #AudiobookChallenge2022👇

Bk21 of December & #WinterGames2021 & Bk1 of #NewYearSpecial #20in4 #readathon is done. A cute little romcom with some witchy woman thrown in, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Reminds me a lot of Jenny Colgan with a touch of magic. Hope there‘s a bk2! #AVeryMerryBingo #TisTheReadson #AVeryMerryReadathon #WinterCosy #WrapItUpReadathon #DecembersBookBingo #StandaloneDecember #FairyTaleathonBingo #SeasonsOfReading #MistletoeManiacs #1,816pts👇

TheAromaofBooks This was one that as I was reading it I kept thinking “I really shouldn't be enjoying this because it's doing all these things that usually annoy me“... but for some reason it was just so fun that I just totally rolled with it! 4w
Lizpixie @TheAromaofBooks have you read any of Colgan‘s books? If you liked this you‘ll probably like hers👍 4w
TheAromaofBooks I actually don't think I have, although I have seen her name around. Do you have a favorite? 4w
Lizpixie @TheAromaofBooks I loved her Bookshop On The Corner & her Beach Street Bakery series. 4w

Bk16 of December & #WinterGames2021 is done. This was my #AussieSecretSanta gift from @thegirlwiththelibrarybag & the 2nd in the Magpie Society duology. I have to say, I was a little bit underwhelmed. While the ending was a bit of a surprise, the writing itself felt rushed. Sorry Sharni! Maybe it was just me? Still an entertaining read. #AVeryMerryBingo #AVeryMerryReadathon #WinterCosy #WrapItUpReadathon #ClearUrShit #MistletoeManiacs 2,871pts👇
