Feeling inspired by so many others reading lists, I‘ve compiled my picks for #Booked2022 #SpringQuarter 🌷🌻🌷🌻I‘ll probably change my choices, but still fun to plan ahead. I‘m trying to use books I own or can borrow from online sources. Not sure what I‘ll use yet for #MakeYourOwnPrompt 😊

BarbaraTheBibliophage Great picks!! 13mo
Cinfhen Thanks @BarbaraTheBibliophage 2 books are IRL bookclub picks for April & May so that was a no brainer 🥳 13mo
Cinfhen Maybe I should #MakeYourOwnPrompt #BookClubWorthy and select our June book @BarbaraTheBibliophage 🤓😉 13mo

Thank you to @SimonSchuster for gifting me this nonstop, heart pounding thriller that‘s #BookClubWorthy 🤓When Captain Bill Hoffman learns his family has been kidnapped he‘s given the ultimate choice crash the plane carrying 149 innocent souls or save his own family. If he refuses to comply his wife and 2 children will die. What do you do?!?? This book is destined for the big screen - I pictured Matthew McConaughey in the role of the 👨‍✈️

TrishB This sounds great for a read on my holidays! 1y

DivineDiana Heart pounding! Just what I‘m looking for! Hope you‘re having fun with the family! ❤️ 1y

FINISHED my final prompt for #Booked2020: I‘m excited that I completed it! This was at my bottom of to be read list: recommended by a therapist over a year ago. The other ones were #Gothic or horror: “Mexican Gothic,” #ThinkPink: “ We Have always Been Here,” #Publishedin2020: “Resilience is Futile,” #Bookclubworthy: “Ragged Company,” #SouthAsian “Ghachar Ghochar.”

Singout The book itself is considered to be a classic in its field: at least in Canada, where it was written. I‘ve been told it‘s a bit outdated now. It was hard slogging because it‘s about all the links between physical illness and mental health issues (stress, childhood unhappiness, anxiety, depression) which could be demoralizing because I‘m living with a long-term physical illness. However, I took some notes I‘m going to follow up on. 2y
Cinfhen Woohoo 🎉 🙌🏻
congrats on completing #Fall #Booked2020 💗This is your #OfficialFinalEntry 🎊WELL DONE
And glad the tagged book offered you some helpful ideas 🤗Happy New Year
Singout Happy New Year to you too! 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage I have another Maté on my shelf, but this one actually sounds more interesting. Have you read 2y
Singout My friend who said this was outdated recommended that one, and I might read it at some point but I‘m not very diligent about monitoring and consuming-health related things. One of the qualities he addresses in the book: avoidance. 2y
