📚5 Print books - including 2 Graphic Novels
🎧2 #AudioBook s - including the tagged, which was my favourite this month

rabbitprincess I really like your TBR cleanup bingo cards! It looks like a fun way to help choose what to read next 😊 3mo
TCLinrow @rabbitprincess it is 😊 it keeps me focused as well so I don't end up with dozens of books on the go (usually). And when i get to tick something off it feels really good 😎 3mo

So total time is around 38 hours (lost a bit of time when my phone restarted 😕). Finished 3 (albeit short) books and put a lot of progress into a few others. I call that a success 😎

So my phone decided to update last night and the timer reset 😫 so I guess I'm starting fresh this morning 😅

I've hit a bit off a reading wall because I'm not sure I fancy any of the books that I've got on my current #TBR so I'm going to have a reread of something I know I love but haven't properly reviewed yet and come back to my #TBRChallenge picks when I'm ready 😊

Mehso-so

Forgot to post this yesterday 😅

I hate to say it, but for this a so-so is pretty generous. I liked the idea of it a lot more than the execution, and I don't know whether it was down to a below par translation taking away the original version or a poor choice of works... either way, this just about scraped together enough intrigue to make itself a so-so and I don't think I'd ever recomend it.

So after yesterday's stop-start reading at work I've added quite a bit of time, but not a lot of progress 😕 I felt like I was spending as much time finding my place again as I was actually reading!
Still, I've almost finished the tagged, I got an hour of Vindolanda in before work called, and Clockwork Angel is calling to me.
Hurray for bank holidays 😅

So I figured I might as well keep my #TBRCleanup going for the variety, alongside my #LeastRated 😊

Out of the 10 left I think I'll try to finish the tagged book first, because I was reading it the most recently, then I think I'll try The Fire Queen because it's been half finished for the longest...

But it's me so I'll probably read something entirely different just because I can 😅

#TBRChallenge ❤🧡💛

Suet624 This is such a great idea. I need to do it! I have a huge TBR. (edited) 4mo
TCLinrow @Suet624 same! I decided it was about time I got it under control 😂 4mo
Suet624 Did you use an app to put this grid and book photos together? 4mo
TCLinrow @Suet624 I did 😊 the grib was a from a site called myfreebingocards.com and I added the pictures on once I finished them on an app called Pic Collage 4mo
Suet624 Perfect! Thanks for the info. 4mo

Pickpick

There was a brilliant variety of stories in this collection - some better than others, but that was to be expected. I liked how some spun well known (and some lesser known) tales into something new, and how some took familiar fairytale elements and create something new and interesting.

I look forward to reading the other collections in the series.

The Final Straw - I was excited to see a retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin, because it doesn't seem to be very popular. It kept a lot of the traditional elements, but made the heroine less pathetic. Really loved this one.

The Unicorn Hunter - I'm not crying, you're crying! A Snow White retelling with demons and unicorns and a happy/sad ending. If that's not enough, then nothing is 😅

Still Red - this one gets a post of its own... not because it's good, but because I'm not sure a story has ever confused me so much before in my life.

Supposedly a retelling of Little Rsed Riding Hood, I can say I recognised any of the original story except a couple of names (maybe?). It was more if a delusional fever dream, and I've read it a couple of times now and if anything that made it worse.

2 more to go! 😊

AkashaVampie I love the cover 4mo
SW-T Love your review: “delusional fever dream.” Oh my! 4mo
Crewgurl So was this a yes or no pick? Lol 4mo
TCLinrow @Crewgurl I've actually just finished the last of the stories in the book and I'm about to post a review 😊 Its a pick though, overall. 4mo

So I was trying to come up with a way to keep my #TBRChallenge interesting when I saw that Goodreads has an option to filter by number of ratings...
Pretty much all my audio books had quite a lot of ratings, but my eBooks and Print books were sorely lacking.
Above I've compiled some of my least rated books, and my new challenge is to finish at least 2 boards by the end of the year 😊
Challenge on!
