I‘m super excited that these 2 titles came up! My #BookSpin, The Secret Lives of Color, is a really interesting nonfiction that I started in the spring but put back on the shelf for some reason, and decided a few weeks ago that I wanted to finish it before the new year. And my #DoubleSpin, The Heiress, is one of our #Pemberlittens #chapteraday #buddyreads that I‘m really enjoying!

TheAromaofBooks I've had The Secret Lives of Color on my TBR for a while!! 3h

Good morning, everyone! The moment you have all been waiting for!! Our official #BookSpin number is FOURTEEN!! Our official #DoubleSpin number is TWO!! I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at everyone's lists & am really looking forward to seeing your reviews!

My next post will be the #BookSpinBingo card!!! I will NOT be tagging everyone on the Bingo post, so if you want to play, please just check my profile for the Bingo card!! ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) In case you missed it, the #BookSpin and #BookSpinBingo challenges will be continuing in 2023!! Sometime in the next couple weeks I will post a sign-up post for next year's tag list!!

Remember, the end-of-the-year giveaway is coming!!! Entries will close at the end of the day on January 1. Below is the link to the Google Form you must complete in order to be entered!! ⬇
10h
TheAromaofBooks (cont‘d) Below are a few housekeeping items that I would really appreciate if you took a few moments to read. As always, my masterpost about both #BookSpin & #BookSpinBingo can be found on my blog - https://thearomaofbooks.wordpress.com/bookspin-bookspinbingo-litsy-challenge - & this link is always available in my profile as well. ⬇ 10h
TheAromaofBooks 1. Remember, this is a no-pressure challenge!! You can read one or both of these books. You can bail on them. You can bail on the whole challenge and try again next month. Whatever works!! This is supposed to be fun not stressful!! ⬇ 10h

TheAromaofBooks 2. I do have a giveaway at the end of the year. Every BookSpin or DoubleSpin book completed counts as an entry!! In the past, I have tracked these myself, but for 2022 YOU are in charge of tracking your own entries!! To help with this process, I have created a Google Form that can be found here - https://forms.gle/X57ePKzuHpsqLjE5A - You can use this Form two different ways: You can update it throughout the year OR you can wait and fill in ⬇ 10h
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) all the information at the end of the year. If you want to be entered in the giveaway you MUST use this form. However, if you do NOT want to be entered in the giveaway but still want to use the form for organizational purposes, I have set it up so that the personal info/address blank is OPTIONAL - so you can use the form without submitting your name/address. If you do not care about the giveaway you do NOT have to use this form at all ⬇ 10h
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) There is more information about how the form works when you click on the link and go to the form because I LOVE overexplaining things!!! You are also ALWAYS welcome to ask me questions!!

4. Even though I don't HAVE to see your reviews I love reading them!! So please feel free to tag me in any and all BookSpin reivews!!

5. For the giveaway, DNFs do count!! The goal for #BookSpin is to get a book off your TBR, so if you decide not to ⬇
10h
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) finish it, it's still off the TBR and still counts as a completion in my book!!

6. If you do not finish your #BookSpin/#DoubleSpin book this month it is STILL ELIGIBLE for a giveaway entry as long as you complete it sometime in 2022!! There is space in the form for you both to put down what book you are SUPPOSED to read & then to check off which books you DID read! ⬇
10h
TheAromaofBooks 7. Everyone is welcome to join this challenge!! If you wanted tagged & I missed you, it was completely inadvertent!! Please just let me know that you want to be added to the tag list. You can also let me know if you want to be removed - no hard feelings!! Feel free to jump in & out of this challenge as needed. Also, obviously, getting tagged doesn't mean you HAVE to actually participate!!


10h
TheAromaofBooks 8 & final (FINALLY) - While I don't have time to reply to all of the comments to this post, I do read every one and love seeing which books got picked for you!! I do respond to any direct questions or confusion, so please feel free to ask away if something doesn't make sense or you need some clarifications. Thank you all so much for your enthusiasm, and happy reading!!! 10h

Singout My spin would have been Gods of Jade and Shadow, but I‘m switching that on #ReadingtheAmericas2023 list for The Daughter of Dr. Moreau by the same author, so I can include it in #Booked2023. It‘s not available, so I‘ll be reading my double spin, Under the Undala Trees, which I‘ve been putting off for a long time. (edited) 2h

I'm a bit early this month with my December #bookspin list.
I'll be off on a cruise so I thought I'd get it up before I forget.
But it may change once I decide which books to take on the cruise.
There's some holiday cheer and more categories for the end of the year.
@thearomaofbooks.

Apparently I was in a grey & pink mood today, as I inadvertently matched my book with my new knitting project. Enjoying both so far! #knitting #audioknitting #sockknitting
