#doublebookspin #bookspinbingo. A re-read so of course 5 stars. After The Discovery of Witches series this is the next favorite! So steadily re-reading them. This happened to also be my double spin so yay me!!

TheAromaofBooks I own the first book in this series but still haven't gotten around to reading it yet!! 20h

I went back & forth w/ this one. There were elements I thought pulled me out of the story (Laura Potsdam) & there were elements I thought I could have been beefed up (Henry, Bishop/Bethany, Pwnage). But overall, this is Samuel & Faye‘s story and it‘s a sad, funny, beautiful, tragic one. I‘m glad I stuck with it. January #DoubleBookSpin Quote pictured: “When all you have is the memory of a thing, all you can think about is how the thing is gone.”

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 3d

I love folklore. I learn so much about the culture and the mores of the culture. Raouf Mama explains the Fon culture as he tells the stories. Priceless!! #ReadingAfrica2022 @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB #DoubleBookSpin @TheAromaofBooks

BarbaraBB Great choice! 5d
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 5d
Librarybelle Oh! This looks fascinating! 5d
DrexEdit excellent! I have the same book on my list for Benin. Looking forward to it! 👍 5d

3✨ I could have done without the crude sexual conversations and situations that happened in this book. It did not add anything to the story except cringing. The concept of normal people collecting souls that would be passed to another that didn‘t have one yet was an interesting concept that I was interested in. I‘m planning on reading the next book and hope that it dropped the crudeness.

Going to join in on the #JoyousJanuary #Readathon since I'm still bitter about the Chargers have the worst coach in NFL history and probably won't watch any games. Just some small goals for myself as I won't have too much time to read during the week.

- Finish The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for #BookSpin
- Start Dear Edward for #DoubleBookSpin

Thank you @Andrew65 for hosting!

Andrew65 Good luck 😊👍 6d

5/5

Life is Huaxia is fueled by the deaths of girls in metal mechs. When Zetian's sister is murdered by a pilot, Zetian volunteers to join their ranks knowing that she'll have a chance at vengeance before her life is sacrificed, but instead she finds her will is strong enough that she survives and sacrifices her partner her first time piloting a mech. It's an incredible story of power, propaganda, and vengeance. I cannot wait to read the sequel!

1. The Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery, Made in Manhattan by Lauren Layne, and Good Enough by Kate Bowler

2. The main goal is to read every #bookspin and #doublebookspin this year. I'd also like to also fully complete 1 reading challenge, but that's more of a bonus goal.

3. Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse

I‘ve been focused on comfort reads lately and this totally hit the spot- supernatural, sort of kind of predictable but in a unique way, (are these considered supernatural cozyish or what sub genre do they fall under?) Super spoiler: is it possible to have a crush on both a vampire and a gay dragon??? @DebinHawaii I see why this was on your #newyearwhodis list and 🙌 Thankyou! #doublebookspin #bestchaptertitlesever

DebinHawaii I am glad you enjoyed it! 🤗 I thought it was a fun one & it is a perfect comfort read. I debated putting it on my #newyearwhodis list but I enjoyed the paranormal characters & the second so much I had to. I‘m going to start the third one of these days! 2w

My first #BookSpin and #DoubleBookSpin ever! A couple of year‘s ago, I deleted my GoodReads TBR…and then built it back up to an astronomical height. 🙄 The Nix is the longest-standing book on my GR TBR, so it will be nice to cross it off my lists! 🍀🍀🍀

TheAromaofBooks LOL I commented on your earlier post before I saw this notification - apparently you had no problems finding the numbers!! 😁 I added you to the tag list, too!!! 3w
AshleyHoss820 @TheAromaofBooks 😂 I have so many friends who do this every year, so I followed the breadcrumbs back to you! 😊 3w
erinreads I absolutely loved The Nix! Hope you enjoy it. 3w
AshleyHoss820 @erinreads I‘m glad to hear that because I‘m really looking forward to it! 😊 3w
