My very messy #BookSpin & #BookSpinBingo list for February! I did really good for January. If I can finish The Menopause Manifesto, I will have three bingos! Will post my board before 1/2. 😄

When Australia is hit with sudden werewolves, Alex & Shelby fly to help the conservationist society in charge of Australia‘s supernatural. It‘s good things won‘t be complicated by Alex dating the leader‘s daughter. Oh wait.

I really love Alex‘s sense of humor & the exploration of a new part of the world with different creatures. Some interesting interpersonal conflict + a bigger mystery that kept me guessing. Excited for the next one! 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

146/150 This is a fascinating look into the origins, histories and mythology surrounding famous monsters. Starting with monsters from Greek mythology, like the Minotaur or Medusa, through famous European-centric monsters like vampires and werewolves, man-made creatures like the Golem and Hal 9000, and finishing with possible monsters from space.
Continued in the Comments ⬇️

RamsFan1963 The author's writing style is informative, but told with a snarky sense of humor that kept things light, never dull or text book boring. 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 2mo

Although I like some better than others, I never dislike a Seanan McGuire book. This is no exception, but it started on shaky ground. It felt a bit like an excuse to create an old early 50‘s/60‘s sci-fi style dimension (eg Fantastic Planet) with giant spiders to have our heroes stuck in, with the addition of zombies, but it worked out okay and I‘m glad the book ended how it did. I am glad that the POV changes character every 2 books, for variety

This is a middle school aged book. It's really good suspense story with some fun science and animals. Marty, Grace and Luther are with their uncle/father on a science boat looking to capture a giant squid. Add pirates, an evil uncle/father, chimp, bubble submarine,and a parrot for good fun.Some guns and killing involved. I didn't realize this is 2nd in a series, book 1 is Cryptid Hunters. Next on the list. #doublespin November @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! 2mo

AmandaBlaze I should have read this during the Scarathlon. It would probably have given me lots of word search points. 3mo

Another personal favourite I stumbled across by chance in a tiny book and gift shop at Gullfoss in Iceland. Instant buy, it wasn't cheap but worth it. An absolute treasure! 🐲🐉

Alex Price is just your regular reptile specialist, working with cryptids, basilisks, and gorgons. Things start to get dicey when something starts petrifying people at the zoo he works at.

Delightful! A little info dump heavy, but that made sense for the character! Alex was funny and charming. Loved the expansion of the world, and more of the Price family! Was a little disappointed with the end reveal, but that‘s a minor nitpick. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

Catsandbooks Yay! 🖤👻 4mo
