I sent some of my Litsy holiday cards out this morning and received my first two in the mail. So cute!

I listened to the tagged book today as I cleaned my office up and made this little book tree.

December #BookspinBingo

I had to add an extra book. Somehow the picks and my blanks didn‘t work out, so I added The Christmas Killer.
My #Bookspin is Christmas at the Mysterious Booshop and my #Doublespin is Werewolf on the Western Front.

This is an erotic/contemporary romance retelling of Hades and Persephone and it was so good. I really loved both of the main characters, but especially Hades. 💗🔥I also loved the other characters and can‘t wait to read the next two books.
Earlier this year I read Neon Gods, also an H & S retelling and I enjoyed it, but if I had to choose I would pick this one. #LMPBC #GroupR

Bookzombie @sprainedbrain I don‘t know how, but I failed to take a physical picture of this book at any point. Lol. I mailed it out yesterday and I have a tracking number if you would like it. I hope you all enjoy this one too. @Reggie @KristiAhlers 3w
sprainedbrain Oh I can‘t wait! I‘m glad to hear it‘s better than Neon Gods! 😉 3w

sprainedbrain If this one at least makes them gods it‘s gonna be a million times better for me. 😅 3w
sprainedbrain I just finished and I loved it! So much better than Neon Gods. I definitely need to continue this series… maybe we should all just be in a perpetual romance round while we work through these seres? 😂 @Bookzombie @KristiAhlers @Reggie 3d
Bookzombie @sprainedbrain Yay! I‘m going to order the other two so if you all want me to send them along I can. Either with our other books or on a delay. Lol. @KristiAhlers @Reggie 3d
KristiAhlers Wow I can‘t wait to read this one! Neon Gods disappointment me. 3d
KristiAhlers @sprainedbrain I‘m totally in on that idea. 3d

This is a collection of short stories. Some are very short, only a couple of pages. I was going to say that I wasn‘t sure I loved that; but then I was thinking about some of the stories and I do! There is one with spiders that made me shudder. 🕷🤢 #SkodenReadathon #shortstory

It took me a minute to get into this one on audio, but soon I was hooked on Cash. I have already put book 2 on hold. I think the blurb explains it well except the mystery is less important than everything else. I didn‘t mind that at all. #SkodenReadathon #SGJRendonWeiden

Cold Vengeance | Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child

Pickpick

This is book 11 in the Pendergast series. It‘s really hard to review a book this far in a series. Add to it that it‘s the middle book in the Helen trilogy and it‘s even harder. It felt like a middle book and ends in a cliff hanger so I will pick up book 12 soon. I enjoyed the return of a character from Still Life With Crows (book 4). I also hope I‘m wrong about what has happened to another minor but regular character. (Is that a spoiler?)

Bookzombie @TheAromaofBooks This was my #Doublespin for May. 😄 3w
vivastory I have read only one Pendergast book. I remember that I liked it but I had a really hard time picturing Pendergast. I kept picturing him as a blonde Benedict Cumberbatch. 😂 3w
Bookzombie @vivastory Hmm, he is tall, slim, pale and blonde so I can see BC as him but with a Southern accent. Rene Auberjonois reads the series and he has the accent down. I just went to look up how to spell his last name and saw that he died in 2019 🙁 so I don‘t know who has been reading the current ones. I‘m so far behind that they are on book 21 and spun off a character into her own series. Lol. 3w

This was a pick. Many of the essays are satirical and I think I found the personal essays more interesting. I listened to the audio. It‘s not read by Midge. Maybe the author is a horrible narrator, but I always wonder if it would be better read by them. I laughed quite a bit, but I also found that some of the political essays enraged me all over again. Lol. This was published in 2019. #SkodenReadathon #nonfiction

vivastory Hands down one of my favorite titles of the past few years 3w
IndoorDame I‘m always more interested in listening to a book if I see it‘s read by the author, even though I know so many authors are surprisingly terrible readers! I remember a visiting poetry lecture series in college where maybe 15 or 20 contemporary poets came to read, and with at least half of them I found myself thinking, this would actually be better on paper or read by anyone else! 3w
Bookzombie @vivastory It‘s a great title! 3w
Bookzombie @IndoorDame That‘s how I feel about memoir and essays. I want the author‘s tone and emphasis. 🙂 3w

Is she high? Are they all high? Am I high? These questions all crossed my mind while reading this book. I have spent all day thinking about it and finally decided it was a pick for me. CH is an exclusive school with free tuition and room and board. Students must commit to staying for three years (including summers), never leaving the grounds, and then will leave to be successful. I‘m unclear if CH is a college. I know the students are adults. ⬇️

Bookzombie There isn‘t much of a plot, but I still found it compelling to pick up. This is basically Ines‘ story of being at Catherine House. #Booked2022 #darkacademia 1mo
Reggie Lol I totally understand your first sentences when it comes to some books. I haven‘t read this one but you and a couple of others have left entertaining reviews on this one that make me want to pick it up. 1mo

This has been on my TBR for some time. I resisted because I need to start another series like I need a hole in my head. Oh well, what‘s one more series, right?

At the turn of the century, Asher is a professor and former spy forced by a vampire to find out who is murdering vampires in London. No surprise, but I enjoy the historical setting. Asher is a worthy main character and I love his wife, Lydia. She is a medical doctor and scientist who ⬇️

Bookzombie aides Asher in his investigation. The vampires are more traditional, no sparkles or sexiness. I like sexy vampires but sometimes you want vampires that are going to rip throats out. Even so, by the end, I had a small soft spot for the main vampire, Don Simon Ysidro. 1mo

I didn‘t finish any books this week, but I did finish season 2 of Only Murders In The Building. I am sad season 3 won‘t be out until next year.
I bailed on Claw. It should have been one I enjoyed but I just didn‘t.
I‘m putting TWH on ice until my ebook hold comes in. The copy I have is just too cumbersome.

Cinfhen My kids have all been telling me which series i NEED to watch but I‘m scared to get sucked into the Netflix vortex - I know once I start it‘ll be WEEKS before I pick up a book 📖 1mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen Yes, that‘s the downside. OMITB is 2 Seasons, 10 episodes each. Each episode is about 43 minutes, I think. I only had Season 2 to watch but I watched 3 episodes yesterday so that led to little reading. This series is on Hulu. 1mo

I love this! I started this in September, but with the move didn‘t get to spend much time with it. Once I picked it up again this week, I devoured it. (Ha!) It‘s a great mash-up of what I love: scary creatures, random survivors thrown together, grumpy old men, and an apocalypse.

Thanks @Reggie for sending this one to me! You are awesome! 🐛🧜‍♀️🦑

Reggie Lol,yayyy I‘m so glad you liked it. Brian Keene says he based it off his grandfather who actually was in WW2. I loved Teddy and his friend who was sometimes a few sandwiches short of picnic sometimes. I forget his name. And then the crazy guy. When he shoots down that chopper. Oh em gee! Lol I hope Indiana is the best for you, Margie. 2mo

I‘m in groups L and R if you wanna join one. 4 of us we each pick a book, read it, mark it up and pass it on till the 4 months is up. I‘ve always wanted to read a book with you and this is also a way I can get your new address. Lol, if you want. Signups are on Suvata‘s page. (edited) 2mo
Bookzombie @Reggie Hi, Reggie!This will sound silly but I have never joined one before because I don‘t know if I would be any good at it. I don‘t know if I think critically enough when I read, but I can try. Do you have a preference on which group I join? 😀 I would give you my address anyway, lol. 2mo

September #wrapup

We relocated from Texas to Indiana this month so most of my reading in September was via audio. I also never created my #BookspinBingo board for the month. All of the books I completed were picks!

Completed:

Graphic Novel - 1

Tell Me This Ends Well was my July #Bookspin and I have decided to DNF as I‘m not that interested.
The Bromance Book Club was my #Bookspin for September.

The list on the right is my #Bookspinbingo TBR, which includes previous picks and Kindle books. There are two spots with “Blank” so that I can add the picks for BS and DS to their correct number and move the books in those spots to the blank spots.

Reggie I‘m rooting for 1,1,8, and 4. 3mo
TrishB @Reggie everyone needs to read Swansong 😁 3mo
Reggie @TrishB 🖤, also Margie if and when you read it I‘ll buddy read it with you if you want. I haven‘t read it since the year 2000. 3mo

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I really enjoyed the Poison Study books. If you read the whole series (three trilogies) I totally recommend visiting the author's website has she has fun short stories that connect between the different books!! 3mo
Bookzombie @Reggie @TrishB Swan Song is going to get read before the end of year. It was already a pick for #Bookspin, lol. Sometimes it‘s easy to resist the chunkster, even though I always love them. @Reggie Okay! I haven‘t really done many Buddy reads. I will let you know when I‘m going to start it. 😊 3mo
Bookzombie @TheAromaofBooks Good to know! I have the first 2 books. They were gifts in a swap years ago. 3mo

#WeeklyForecast

I‘m leaning quite heavily on audio this week, but also need to finish the Ito and read Blood on Tracks Vol. 8 and Tale of the Shadow King.

I‘m not sure what I will read in print next as I‘m returning all my physical library books this week. I‘m sort of worried I might accidentally pack one of them, lol.

Cinfhen Are you moving far?? Will you be in the same library system?? 3mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen We are moving from Texas to Indiana, so I will have to get used to a different library. I will still have access to San Antonio‘s digital library for a bit though. 3mo
Reggie Why Indiana? 3mo

Bookzombie @Reggie Lol. For a number of reasons, but for four seasons 🤞🏻is one. Also, it will be more centrally located. It takes forever to escape the embrace of Texas, but we can leave Indiana in a few hours. Texas is the boyfriend that won‘t let go. Sadly, we won‘t see a change in politics. 3mo
Reggie @Bookzombie I had a friend who lived in El Paso. She had 2 abortions. She doesn‘t live there anymore. She did it because the guy she was with was a bad guy and didn‘t want to be connected to him for the rest of her life. She lives in another state but I think about the 10k bounty law and if it were a different time and if someone she thought she trusted knew. It sucks. That‘s just the abortion law and not some of the other stuff. Good luck, 👇🏼 3mo
Reggie Margie. Moving sucks!!! I‘ve only done it like 3 times and that was enough. 3mo

#BookReport

Ballroom is a low pick, but I really enjoyed the other three.
We had a garage sale today in preparation for the move so I didn‘t finish the Ito book like I wanted to. Body Double is #4 in the Rizzoli and Isles series. I‘ve read the series before and I‘m still enjoying them this time around.

Cinfhen Hope the garage sale went well!!!! 3mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen Thanks, it did! 🙂 3mo

Pickpick

The tagged is the final book in the Clue Mystery trilogy. This series is a low pick for me. I love the movie and I love the idea of bringing it to a new generation via these books, but I just didn‘t love them. Reading each one as it came out might have been a disservice as I hardly remembered anything that happened in the first two. I had to go back and read reviews with spoilers as I was confused in the beginning of this one.

#WeeklyForecast

I will probably finish The Sinner today as I do chores. I‘m not quite halfway through Ballroom but would love to finish it today too.
The Resting Place will be my next audio, but I also have it in print if I need to switch. I‘m excited to read my first Junji Ito.

Cinfhen How‘s the move going???? 4mo
Cinfhen I can‘t believe you‘re tackling so many books!! Im SUPER IMPRESSED 🙌🏻💕 4mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen It‘s going, lol. Have packed some, but kind of at that point I can‘t pack more until we get closer. 🙂 4mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen Thanks, but you shouldn‘t be, lol. The audios are easy because I can listen while doing other stuff. Also, the graphic novel and mangas don‘t take long to get through. Print novels are harder. I feel sort of too distracted to sit and read for stretches. 4mo
Cinfhen Yeah, packing is definitely a process!!!! 4mo

#BookReport

I just realized that I never posted my forecast for last week, but this was pretty much it. All competed were picks. I‘m still getting more audio reading time than print. Currently listening to the third Rizzoli & Isles book.
I have a stack of library books I‘m trying to finish before the move and Ballroom is one of them. I considered bailing but dammit if I don‘t want to know how she wraps up the trilogy.

#Bookreport late edition

I have had this open to post for two days, lol. We are moving, so life is chaotic here.
I enjoyed my reread of The Surgeon on audio. I finished the last 5 volumes of Harrow County, which is such a great horror series. I read volumes 4, 5, and 6 of Blood on the Tracks, also good.

Cinfhen Moving is SO STRESSFUL!!! Hope it goes well xxxx 4mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen It is! Thank you! 💕 4mo
DivineDiana Wishing everything goes smoothly! 🙏🏻 4mo
Bookzombie @DivineDiana Thank you! 💕 4mo

#Bookreport #Weeklyforecast combo

I picked up where I left off on my Kinsey Millhone reread a couple of years ago with W. She is a comforting character to revisit. I bailed on Outside and my August #Doublespin The War Wagon.

I started rereading Rizzoli & Isles since the library has them on audio now. Candlestick is the last book in the Clue trilogy.

I hope to get to Vol 4-8 of Harrow County and several more volumes of Blood on The Tracks.

Cinfhen Hi 👋 I‘ve missed you!! I know lots of people love the Grafton series - glad you were able to dive back in 4mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen 😊 I missed you too. We have had lots going on so I‘m having a hard time keeping up with everyone. 4mo
Cinfhen Hope all is well 💖 4mo

Bookzombie @Cinfhen Thank you! ❤️July was rough. My mom (she‘s 80) was in the hospital and then my MIL passed away. Now we decided to move. 4mo
Cinfhen Oh wow, I‘m sorry to hear about your MIL and your mom. I hope your mom is on the mend. 4mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen Thank you! My MIL had cancer, but it happened sooner than we thought and she was only 64. My mom is better and back home. 4mo

August #Bookspin #Doublespin #BookspinBingo

The list on the left is my ongoing list for #Bookspin and #Doublespin so that I will read some of the books I own. I replaced last month‘s picks. The list on the right is my #Bookspinbingo TBR. There are two spots with “Blank” so that I can add the picks for BS and DS to their correct number and move the books in those spots to the blank spots. Or maybe I will get lucky and 3 & 16 will get picked. 😄

Bookzombie My #Bookspin TBR has many of my previous BS and DS picks so that hopefully I will catch up. 🙂 4mo

#bookreport #weeklyforecast late edition

Both The Night Strangers and PET were picks for me. I picked up the Connelly because someone else is waiting on it at the library. I couldn‘t wait any longer to listen to the newest Lady Darby. The Thorn Birds and Drag are my carry overs from June. The Jason Reynolds is #aam for July.

Cinfhen Pretty graphics 💚Enjoy your reads 😃 5mo
