Ugh. This is my #readinglife. Two unopened #BOTM boxes. It's a combination of a mini reading slump and just being more into audiobooks right now.

In order to refocus my reading, I've created this reading bingo to make sure that the new hyped books are not distracting me from getting to books and topics I have been meaning to get to for years now.
This is not a year or a season challenge, rather it's a constant point of reference to make sure I get to key books/authors on my TBR
I used the following bingo card generator:

My #octrso2019 #tbrpile well, the print ones anyway. And looking at them there are A LOT of angry girls here. Sigh. There‘s a bit of it going round. Once we‘ve picked for October, I will have a couple of months to catch up with books I missed, mostly series books that we don‘t usually send out (after number one). #readinglife #somanybooks #yada

As it gets closer to my birthday, I want to read something lighter and more fun instead of heavy or tense, so I picked this, my first #Comfy #MurderMystery Love the cover & it sounds delicious. Who doesn‘t like ice cream right?🍨
Well, I‘m half way through & still not much action, just a lots of “talk”. We‘ll see, hope it gets better & Not to #DNF it🤷🏻‍♀️

I have very sweaty hands, so sometimes when I read a hardcover without its jacket, the words on the bookspine got rubbed off afterwards. Last night I‘ve decided to hand sew (hate using sewing machine) my first #bookcover to protect the book & listen to this fun lovely #audiobook while doing so! This book never gets old! Not the best needle work but at least I can read my hardcover with ease☺️

BooknerdsLife @erzascarletbookgasm Thank you 🥰 Hahaa I‘m obsessed with booksleeves too 😂🙈 I might have more than a few which I bought them online as well 😆 This is my first ever attempt to make a bookcover as I was desperate to use it for my current read & I happen to have my daughters spare fabrics in the house (edited) 4mo
Sarah83 @BooknerdsLife do you want to see the whole shelf or do you want to read the titles? 4mo

I don‘t always read Classics, but I love books & stories in general 🤗📚💛 & I just Love how the colour #Yellow makes everything seems so cheerful 😃 #ColorMePretty💛
I‘ve read & adore all but the tagged book, a #YA contemporary which I couldn‘t get into at the time, & #DNF. Nonetheless it‘s a topic I‘m very interested in, so I do plan on picking it up again one day, when the mood strikes.

marleed I love yellow spines - they are so cheerful! 4mo
marleed And the tagged book is at least good for some upcoming spine poetry challenge! 4mo

Reminded me of this #Fantasy series & first book I‘ve read by VE Schwab. About parallel Londons including Red, Grey & Black London. I was hooked by her writing & magical world building but most of all the characters she created! You might get hooked by the adventure but stay for the villains you‘d end up rooting for!

Sweetkokoro I have to say I like these covers so much more then the usual ones I see floating around at my B&N. I have yet to read it, but I feel I would be more enticed if I had seen these versions on the shelf. 4mo
julesG Loved this series! We do have a lot of books in common, it seems. 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Sweetkokoro Haha I normally prefer the US editions but in this case I do love the UK ones better too 😆❤️🖤 Oh I hope you‘ll get to read this soon! I‘ve now read most of her books & love them all! You can order this edition from bookdepository which offers free delivery internationally 👍🏼 4mo
BooknerdsLife @julesG Awww that‘s awesome!! 🤗How lovely we have similar taste in books! 😱💖 I love her YA duology too, which I think is a little under appreciated 😐 Still need to read the new one Vengeful tho🤗 4mo

“I would always rather be happy than dignified”

I‘ve always love reading & libraries been my paradise on earth, but wasn't a big fan & didn‘t appreciate #Classics (except for few children‘s & “not romance” classics) til recently, when I don‘t have to analysis every details & then write papers about them.
What are your favourite Classics?

erzascarletbookgasm Love your collection 👍 4mo
julesG Love this picture! (I've followed you three times now, this is weird. I see your pictures in my feed, but whenever I look at your profile, you're marked as not followed by me. @TimSpalding @kgriffith @lorannen - any idea why that happens?) 4mo
Freespirit I love classics too..in 2017 I spent the year only reading classics...my top ones so far...The Moonstone and Women in White by Wilkie Collins, Count of Monte Christo , Rebecca, anything by Jane Austen, anything by the Bronte's, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Anna Karenina, Dracula, Little Women, Frankenstein, and I've just read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn to add to the list😊 4mo

lorannen @julesG If you're following the @PostsAboutYourBooks account, that would be why! This is a post about a book you've stacked. 4mo
GypsyKat Great picture! 4mo
julesG @lorannen I'm following that account you've mentioned, but I haven't stacked this edition of Jane Eyre that is tagged. 😕 4mo
lorannen @julesG Posts About Your Books doesn't go by edition, I believe. If you've stacked a copy that matches title and author, you'll see the post. In fact, Litsy doesn't really have the concept of separate editions - in theory, the idea was to have one profile for each book (covering all editons). There are some duplicated records still out there, but this is part of our efforts to bring all duplicate records together in Litsy. 4mo
julesG @lorannen Thank you! Now this makes sense. Is there any way users could help getting rid of duplicates? Like flag a book when we notice there's more than one entry in the database? 4mo
julesG Eliza, sorry for hijacking your post. 4mo
BooknerdsLife @erzascarletbookgasm Thank you 💖 Trying to read more good books each year🙏🏼 4mo
BooknerdsLife @GypsyKat Awww Thank you Kat 💖🙌🏼 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Freespirit I‘ve grown to love & appreciate Classics the more I read them. Awww that‘s such a great idea to spend a whole year reading Classics alone! So many great books you‘ve read! I‘m not sure I‘m there yet but I will try reading more each year.. Love Anna Karenina, Picture of Dorian Gray, Frankenstein, Dracula too & My Cousin Rachel too! Definitely have Monte Christo, Rebecca, Woman In White & so many more are on my TBR 😍🙌🏼📚 4mo
BooknerdsLife @julesG Awww Thank you so much 🙏🏼💖 Wow! That‘s so weird & I sincerely thought I‘ve followed your account too!!! Now I‘m confused LOL 😂 4mo
BooknerdsLife @lorannen @julesG Hahaa I‘m not sure I understand all these 😅🙈 I‘m so used to Instagram and Litsy is all new to me 😆 But thank you for taking the time for the explanation 🥰❤️ 4mo
BooknerdsLife @julesG HAHAA No problem at all🤗I love reading all the interactions/ conversations 😊 the more the better 👍🏼 4mo

Here's my mini book haul from June. And Yay! I've finished 2 at the bottom out of these 4 books, not too bad, right? 🤷🏻‍♀️ The top 2 books are my birthday present so will probably read them after my birthday later this month.
Have you read any of these? Or have them in your #TBR pile too?
