The final 3 books of #FoodandLit Buddy Reads for 2022!

This is a casual read-at-your-own-pace buddy read. Anyone is welcome to join! Please let me know if you would like to be tagged in the check-in posts.

How are we entering the last quarter of the year?!?!
Have you liked having buddy reads this year? Do you want #FoodandLit buddy reads to continue in 2023?

Sapphire I picked my books from my TBR before the buddy read titles were announced. 1w
Bookworm54 I haven‘t read many of the buddy reads this year, but I think they are nice to have. Especially if you are struggling to find a book for somewhere! 1w
AnneCecilie I‘ve liked the buddy reads even if I participated more at the beginning of the year. I have participated when I can get the book from the library or have it unread on my shelves. I loved the Durrell book and would never have found it on my own. (edited) 1w
TheBookHippie I am in for these last three because I have a lot of sitting in my future waiting on doctor appointments!! LOL. OY VEY!! I do like that you pick books for these even though I plan my own thing a lot of the time! ARE you doing this challenge next year as well?? 5d
Catsandbooks @TheBookHippie I hope your appointments go well! 💕 #FoodandLit will still continue but I'm trying to see how much interest there is in continuing the buddy reads. 4d

aperfectmjk @Catsandbooks I was wondering if #Litsycrafters would be interested in hosting a pumpkin decorating/carving contest for #Scarathlon2022? Entries could earn points in the readathon, then maybe we could collectively decide on a prize? @Clwojick @StayCurious 2d
Catsandbooks @aperfectmjk I thought about that but, one of the activities for scarathlon is a pumpkin carving contest. It's 10 points per entry. So I think they have it covered. 🎃 2d
Catsandbooks @aperfectmjk what about a coloring contest? I'm thinking I could make a scarathlon coloring sheet and people could decorate however they like. Thoughts? @staycurious @clwojick 2d
StayCurious Ooh I‘m liking these ideas! 2d
aperfectmjk @Catsandbooks oh, you're right... I missed that, but, it's just for carving. So, maybe we just open it up to any Halloween craft of your chosen medium. So, if you knit, sculpt, paint, crochet, color, all entries would count. Maybe we could figure out a way for people to vote. Some kind of poll... I'm sure Google probably has this option right? 😆 @Clwojick @StayCurious 2d
Clwojick @Catsandbooks what is the October craft? Maybe we can make something work with that. We do offer 15 points for all Halloween/Spooky crafts already, but if you come up with an idea for a poll relating to your monthly theme, I‘m sure we could make something work! Like the idea of the poll! @aperfectmjk @StayCurious 2d
aperfectmjk @Catsandbooks @Clwojick @StayCurious I just thought it would be fun to incorporate #LitsyCrafters in some way. One of the things I love the most about Litsy is how much it truly is a community. This is the best public book forum I have ever been a part of, it has gotten me through some dark days. Anyway... like I was saying if we could bring more attention to #LitsyCrafters, Scarathlon is the event to do it. 2d
Catsandbooks @Clwojick the October craft is watercolor. Which I think would be limiting for a lot of people. My idea would be to make a coloring-esque page and have people decorate it. Whether with traditional crayons or markers, or paint, stickers, digitally, mixed media, whatever. And then have a deadline and we can do a Google form poll and have people vote for winners. @staycurious @aperfectmjk 2d
Clwojick @Catsandbooks okay, I definitely agree. Watercolour is not easy lol. I think the colouring page could definitely work! Are any of you guys artistic enough to create a colouring page, because I know I‘m not! 😅 Neat writing, yes. Drawing, a definite no. 🤣@StayCurious @aperfectmjk 2d
Catsandbooks @Clwojick I could definitely make something! Then I can send it to you guys. If y'all like it we can go ahead and if not we'll just nix the whole thing. @staycurious @aperfectmjk 2d
aperfectmjk @Catsandbooks @StayCurious @Clwojick sure, that's something everyone can do, but could probably put their own spin on in some way. 2d
Clwojick 🖤🖤🖤 2d
StayCurious @aperfectmjk I love the idea of bringing in #litsycrafters to #Scarathlon - thanks for bringing this up 1d
Catsandbooks @StayCurious @clwojick I just sent you an email with the image and contest rules. Let me know what you think! 16h

5/5 ⭐️ I'm so happy this was a pick for our #LMPBC Group! It's perfect for spooky season! 👻
Sorry im a little behind on sending it out but im dropping it off at the post office tomorrow!

Sparklemn What is LMPBC? I see this tag often but I don't know what it means. 3w
Catsandbooks @Sparklemn it's Litsy Markup Postal Book Club. Each round you join a group of 4 people total and rotate books between each person. You read a book and annotate it, then send it on to the next person. Then at the end you get your book back and it has notes from the 4 of you. It's lots of fun! @suvata runs the group and you can find more info on her page. The next round will start in Nov so sign ups will happen in Oct. 3w
Saknicole I‘m happy you liked it too! The next book should be headed your way. I sent it Friday. 3w

Saknicole I can‘t wait for the sequel, Hell Bent, now! She said originally it was supposed to be named Gentleman Demon 😱 3w
Catsandbooks @Saknicole ooo that alternate title makes me even more excited for the sequel!! Though the cover really creeps me out. I heard it's a statue but it's very life-like even if no bunnies were harmed in the making. I'll keep an eye out for the next book too 😊 3w

3/5 ⭐️ This was a soft pick for me. I think it could have been much more powerful, but it just kind of...ended. Hope y'all enjoy it though #LMPBC Group B

Hello fellow #FoodandLit Buddy Readers!

How are we liking the book? I admit I'm not very far into it.

Here's an interview with the author: @Powells/interview-with-anthony-doerr-author-of-all-the-light-we-cannot-see-3a3a501ccad2" rel="nofollow" target="_top">https://medium.com/@Powells/interview-with-anthony-doerr-author-of-all-the-light...

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick It just came in from the library so I'll start listening to it Monday. I finished my France Overview though so I have some general knowledge now. 2mo
sarahbellum It‘s looking doubtful that I‘ll get this read by the end of the month 😞. I have it checked out from the library, so I should at least be able to start it 2mo
TheBookHippie I bailed time number two ... I tried! 2mo

Bookwormjillk This was a re-read for me. I listened to it on audiobook this time. I liked it (again) but I had forgotten all the stuff that happened at the end. 2mo
Roary47 It was interesting and engaging for me. I can‘t say that I remember everything now, but was a nice story all around. 2mo
Sparklemn Same as @roary47 I found it engaging. It was a few years ago so I don't remember a lot of the details. 2mo

My favorite local cafe has macarons so I tried some for #FoodandLit France! Flavors I got were white chocolate, raspberry, caramel, birthday cake, pistachio, and creme brulee. My favorite was the raspberry ❤️

Soubhiville Oh my gosh yum! 2mo
marleed Those are so beautiful. One thing I love about macarons is they are so pretty you almost want to save them, but then you discover they taste so much better as a same day treat. So my lesson is just eat the beauty knowing you deserve beautiful things! 2mo
Smrloomis @marleed totally agree! You DO deserve beautiful and yummy things 😋 2mo
TheBookHippie OH YUM 2mo
