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

TIA x

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.

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 ⬇ 7d
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!! 7d
LitsyEvents @TheAromaofBooks that's a great help. Thank you 🙂. 6d
BookwormAHN I'm still doing #StarWarsBuddyRead and plan to do another witch swap around Halloween. I'll post details in August. 5d
AllDebooks @BookwormAHN thanks 😊 2d

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

The Die Is Cast | Jenny Rogneby
post image

Well, I didn't finish any of my #CastTheDie numbers, but I did at least clear the list. 😂 (We Only Kiss at Christmas turned out to be a sequel, but I tried the proceeding book and didn't get into it. so likely I won't end up reading it.) I'll try A Winter's Promise again another time, I think.

5/5 ⭐️ Team read for #CandyCaneCrushers #wintergames 🍭 I loved it! Christmas market romance with some magic and so many Wisconsin (my home state) references! This really made me miss kringle and wish I had ordered some to be shipped this year. (O & H Danish Bakery is my favorite!)

Mehso-so

I think my opinion of this may be slightly tarnished by the fact I had a slightly dodgy digital copy that repeated the entire book twice through- so I got to the end thinking I was only halfway and it therefore felt a bit abrupt! An interesting read, but no real plot, and I definitely preferred the bonesetter‘s daughter.

#castthedie #promptmaze #wintergames #snowangels

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!!! 7mo

Amid the Winter Snow: A Holiday Anthology | Grace Draven, Elizabeth Hunter, Thea Harrison, Jeffe Kennedy
post image

Four enjoyable fantasy/romance novellas; three are connected to series, but can be read as stand alones. (Though I suspect Jeffe Kennedy's story is better if you know the characters.) I'm eager to read Eliabeth Hunter's urban fantasy now.
~~
I finished 8 books for #Dashing December, though didn't entirely meet my goal, because I couldn't get into any of my #CastTheDie choices. ☹️ But did get this longtime TBR book off my #BookSpinBingo list.

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! 7mo
