Mini life update for those tagging me for #readyourebooks and #bookspinbingo

I‘m currently in India, left Bombay a few days ago and now in beautiful Goa. Reading along the way with my chai. Happy reading to everyone. I‘ll be back soon…. Maybe 😅

Last book for the month, finished yesterday. Here's my updated board for #bookspingbingo I'll make a list/board for Nov but with travel idk. @TheAromaofBooks

#23 FREE

3.5 🌟
A retelling of The Great God Pan. Although I never read it, im thankful the author included a description at the end. Enough gore & horror to satisfy me, but I wasn't overly in love with the characters. The pace felt a bit scattered. Overalll a solid October read.

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! Fabulous month!!! 8mo

Midweek #wrapup . Updated bingo board soon. 3 weeks left to prep my trip & feel nothing done besides my visa.

@TheAromaofBooks #bookspinbingo

5 - Mary Shelley Club 3 🌟
Too YA for me but there are still plenty of twists. So many horror references just like My Heart is a Chainsaw.

19 - Audiobook - The Return 2 🌟
Wanted to enjoy this, the pace was good 3/4ths. Then chaos & reckless writing. Did not enjoy the characters in the slightest.

#October midweek wrap up
@TheAromaofBooks #BookSpinBingo

10 Oct #1 - Looking Glass Sound 4 🌟
Haven't read a book this fast in a while! Magic, murder & betrayal; what more could I ask for.

5 Oct #16 Audio - Night of the Mannequins 3 🌟
Up there in the weird, chaotic & unreliable narrator category.

2 Oct #17 Audio - Court of Sugar & Spice 2 🌟
This had so much potential!!!!! Nutcracker retelling but the copious amount of sex, destroyed it.

A little blurb about each is below in the comments. Been super busy with getting back to work after the break. Managed to squeeze in reading and 2 audiobooks!

CloakNQuill Hollow Places - 2.5 🌟
Wasn't for me. The ex storyline kinda ruined everything else going on.

Butcher & the Wren - 3.75🌟
Fan of Dexter or Criminal Minds? You need to read this. I was craving more pages with the juxtaposition between the two characters & the dynamic they have.

Gallant - 3.75🌟
THE ATMOSPHERE!!! Didnt know I was craving another gothic novel until it fell into my lap. Really interesting and sucked me from the start.

#February #bookspinbingo @TheAromaofBooks

#1 - Audio - 3✨

Audio read by the author, felt like a novel w/ slam poetry moments. Jack is a struggling musician in NYC 1993, searching for his stolen bass along with his vocalist who stole it. 90s punk scene along w/ the many characters of the EV. There is murder, romance, humor, and the music scene. It‘s an okay book & understand why there are mixed feelings. For the most part it kept my attention.

#February #bookspinbingo #18 @TheAromaofBooks

2.5 ✨
Premise of a unique retelling is actually a full blown erotica. The cringe, the cringeeee!! Idk how many times I rolled my eyes at “Darling/my lady”. The insta love. Not an accurate depiction of Persephone, personality wise & w/ her maternal relationship. The extra chapters were funny though. She turned Minthe into a mint plant 😂 If you go into this knowing it‘s erotica, it‘s okay.

5feet.of.fury I liked it, but I was there for the 🌶️ 😂 1y
CloakNQuill @5feet.of.fury the “Thrust” scene rlly gave me the ick. Besides that it‘s not bad for the 🌶️ 1y
5feet.of.fury The next one is terrible plot wise, really only the spice going for it 😂 1y
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 1y

Wish I read this before Paris Apartment!! Constant game of cat & mouse with the reader on who the victim & culprit are. Multiple POV, creepy atmosphere, characters have depth without over/underwhelming. Fun murder mystery on an island with recognizable characters completely trapped. Really enjoyed this one especially on audio.

Brings me to 2 bingos! Will post my final bingo board in a few.

#12 - 15 Earth & Blood Finished - 3.75🌟 Jan/27
#21 Free - House of Hollow 4🌟 Jan/22

HOH was fantastic! Dark fantasy fairy tale set in modern London & magical Scottish forest. Gore, horror, secrets, family, fashion, nature. It gave me everything I needed and adore.

E&B it‘s been a long time coming! I enjoyed the story & mystery behind what occurs in the first Ch. It didn‘t need to be 800+ pages. ⬇️

CloakNQuill There was too much filler. I wasn‘t feeling the romance from the very beginning. All my favorite characters get killed off. Not the best time. Now the world itself I was fascinated by & the mystery which once revealed I didn‘t see coming. The rest was just too much frill for my liking. 1y
