Repost for @AllDebooks

I'm updating the spreadsheet we use to admin the @LitsyEvents page and share all your great events/games/buddyreads/readathons/competitions, etc.

It would be a great help if you could help me out by tagging the details of your events, hosts, dates/times, info about the group/event.

Original post - https://www.litsy.com/web/post/2752549

Cont. ⬇ 💻 📓 📅 🤓

LitsyEvents Additionally, if you no longer run an event, please let me know so I can remove it from the taglist.

Please tag me @AllDebooks or @LitsyEvents #LitsyEvents

PuddleJumper I'll add you to the tag list of all my stuff. Do you want information about future events? I'm currently planning all my stuff for October/December 2w
AllDebooks @PuddleJumper yes please, that would be a big help x 2w

PuddleJumper #roll100 Year long challenge to tackle your TBR pile. Dice are rolled every month and you read the corresponding book. Monthly posts.

#queerbc A queer author is selected for each month, you read something written by them. Monthly voting and check ins. There will be buddyreads in October and December, haven't decided if they will be tagged separately. Information will go up the month before.
PuddleJumper #gottacatchemall Catch Pokemon by reading books that match prompts. Year long challenge. Monthly check ins. There will be special challenges in October and December. Same tag.

#castthedie Seasonal versions of #roll100. October is 13 books and December is 24. Same premise.
PuddleJumper #afterdarkbingo October bingo board for all things paranormal

#bodycountbingo October bingo board for mystery and murder

#trappedinaspookyhouse October challenge, things will start behind posted in September. Make a list of books, someone picks 5/10 books from your list for you to read
PuddleJumper #pumpkaboohunt October challenge, you catch different sized Pumpkaboo for each book you read e.g less than 100 pages is a tiny pumkaboo. See who can catch the most.

#wintercosy Two bingo boards December-January. One is geared towards being cosy and the other is more cosy books.
PuddleJumper #wintercleardown Bingo board December-January, last chance to clear down your TBR

#snowedin December challenge, you make a list of books you want to read and then someone else picks 5/10 books from that list for you to read. Information will go up a month or so in advance
PuddleJumper #monsterfuckbingo 1 or 2 bingo boards for er monster fucker books 😅 Likey to be mini bingo boards. October challenge. 2w

AllDebooks @PuddleJumper yikes, you are gonna be busy. I love ALL of these 😍 2w
AllDebooks @Liz_M tis a pleasure. Hopefully, it will make it quicker and easier to check through the lists x 2w
Faranae I run an Ultimate Reading Challenge (and companion Formidable and Modest challenges) both here and through my blog and on StoryGraph. Info here: https://www.litsy.com/web/post/2686930 This year's tags are #URC2024 #FRC2024 and #MRC2024

I run them every year. The idea is to widen one's reading, as well as tackling TBRs. I review the submitted books from the previous year on my blog, which is how I widen *my* reading haha.
AllDebooks @Faranae thank you, @Faranae That's very helpful 😊 2w
PuddleJumper @AllDebooks Yeah, I didn't realize how many there were until I started typing it out lol 2w
TheAromaofBooks I'm behind on Litsy so I'm just seeing this post 😂 I'm obviously still doing #BookSpin and #BookSpinBingo. I'm also still hosting my #RandomClassics buddy reads each month. I'm technically hosting the #ISpyBingo boards but haven't been posting about them monthly - I posted them at the beginning of the year and then fell of the bandwagon with posting the reminders each month, but it's still an active challenge that I'm planning to revamp but ⬇ 1w
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) keep going in 2025. I have no plans for discontinuing BookSpin so it should also be going for next year unless life takes an unexpected turn!! That's all I have for now, I think. I try to remember to tag you all whenever I come up with new wacky ideas 😂 I really, really appreciate this account and check it regularly for updates!! 1w
LitsyEvents @TheAromaofBooks that's a great help. Thank you 🙂. 1w
BookwormAHN I'm still doing #StarWarsBuddyRead and plan to do another witch swap around Halloween. I'll post details in August. 6d
AllDebooks @BookwormAHN thanks 😊 3d

I‘m usually busier in autumn than in the summer so I‘m trying to get on top of everything. I tend to run a bunch of challenges/bingos etc in October and December

This is mostly for me to keep on track with things and to let you know guys what is coming up so you can watch out for the inevitable Google Forms coming your way!

PuddleJumper The plan is to run #afterdarkbingo #bodycountbingo as usual, have a spooky #gottacatchemall and a pumpkaboo hunt, #queerbc buddy read. #castthedie and #trappedinaspookyhouse

Larkken Tagged book provided the most bingos - but is otherwise a low pick. it really leans into the gore and there's some weird sex stuff that was a turn off and the end was oddly cut off? Anyway, not my fav. vampire book of the mouth, lol 🧛‍♀️ 9mo

Second Half #Scarathlon points: 27,335!!! #SpookyGhostClub @Clwojick

Some great reads during this past week-ish. Knocked off several books from my #Roll100 list - I'm not going to get all 100 read by the end of the year, but I am hoping to focus on that list for November and get a BUNCH checked off!! Lock Every Door was my first Sager, and I'll definitely be on the lookout for more. The Queen's Nose is one of my all-time favorites and was a ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) delightful reread. I was also excited to read Will Henry's latest collection of Wallace the Brave comics - I really love those!!

Thanks to all the challenge and readathon hosts - I've had a great time reading and tracking this month!!

Welcome to Nola. It's a city a lot like New Orleans, except filled with magic, music, and wonders. But as magical songs start to disappear, the city is in danger. It's up to Perilous Graves and his friends to rescue the songs before it's too late.
This was such a lovely adventure. It reminded me of the Phantom Tollbooth mixed with the Starless Sea. Definitely one to reread and get more out of each time.

I first read this about 10 years ago so thought it was time for a re-read. I'm not as easily impressed as I was back then, so I'd probably rate this at a 3.5🌟 now. There's not much backstory given (there is a reason for that that the reader finds out later) & it makes the narrative a bit disorientating as the reader works out what is happening. The twist is still good though.

2015 review: A promising start to what looks to be a good YA series.

OutsmartYourShelf Kept me interested in reading it and had a nice twist at the end. Liked it so much I've just bought the rest of the series.

This was a fun but dark vampire apocalyptic type book. Auggie is used to living in a town full of vampires. He's not used to them constantly approaching him, claiming that he's some prophesied vessel for the rise of a dark being. Now he's got multiple cults after him trying to get him on their side while he's just trying to pass algebra. And hows he supposed to keep his head when the cute vampires keep flirting with him?
Twas a hilarious adventure
