I'm Glad My Mom Died | Jennette McCurdy

My September #WrapUp

📚 7 books - my monthly average this year

🌟I really liked Jennette McCurdy's memoir, it's so raw.
⭐Favourite Fiction goes to Black Eyed Susans.
👎🏻And maybe an unpopular opinion, but I really disliked Bridget Jonen's Dairy

My September #BookSpinBingo didn't go entirely as planned... I only finished 3 books (including my #BookSpin book) and had to DNF one (my #DoubleSpin book).

But that's 4 books off my TBR, so that's a win.

Quick update on my #SuperSeptember #ReadAThon

I've already finished 2 books, started on the 3de and added a 4th book... I'm pretty pleased with my progress.

At this rate I'll be adding more books before the end of the #ReadAThon

@Andrew65

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 2w

I desperately need to start reading....
I haven't picked up a book this entire month 😭 (I blame work)

So I'm starting the #SuperSeptember #ReadAThon with these 3 books.
Listening to Bridget Jonen's Dairy
Reading The other 2

I'll see how this goes and add more books once I'm back in the swing of things

We've been away for the weekend, and had no coverage, it was blissful. Especially with my crazy work schedule. So here is my September #BookSpinBingo board.

August #WrapUp

My reading is definitely hampered by my work load.
Some evenings when I get home I'm so tired that I don't even feel like reading.

But my favourite foe this month was Deaver with Coffin Dancer, looking forward to read the entire series.

Girl, Forgotten | Karin Slaughter

July #WrapUp
Technically it's 6 books, but when I realized I only had the abridged version of Jane Eyre I decided to get the audio book and listen to the full version as well.

For this month I can't pick a favourite 🤷🏼‍♀️
I loved both of Slaughter's books and I was really surprised at how much I loved Jane Eyre.

As for The Way of the Kings: I feel I can't just rate part1, I'll get back to rating it once I'm done with Part2; but so far😍

The coming weekend is jam-packed, but I want to finish Jane Eyre and Part 1 of The Way of Kings, and maybe by Monday start up with Part 2.

So I might not make the #20in4, but I know joining the #ReadAThon always helps me get the most read out of weekends like these.

Just realized that my copy of Jane Eyre is an abridged version 🤷🏼‍♀️ I didn't even know it was done in these older books.

I'm so disappointed 😔
Gonna try and find an audiobook and catch up on what I missed.

melissajayne You can find inexpensive unbridged versions of the book 2mo
Enchanted_Bibliophile Thanks @melissajayne I found a free ebook audio on LibriVox so I'm almost caught up with the full story. 2mo

Lately I've been experiencing a bit of a problem with my Litsy App...
It doesn't download new content and if I refresh it say I should check my internet connection 🤔

Trying to figure out how to fix this, but in the meantime I read every time I get frustrated with the tech...

For the JUNE #BookSpinBingo I got only one BINGO and that only because of all the free spaces.

I've read 7 books on my board including my #BookSpin and my #DoubleSpin
And then I got caught up in books that wasn't part of my board for the last part of the month...

So I've changed up my JULY #BookSpin list a bit

Did much better today 🙂
Basically I read the entire day with little naps in-between

I finished Still Life; and as always Val delivered an excellent piece of work.

TheMystery.doc is quite intriguing. It's very disjointed, but I can't seem to put it down.
