Bk7 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 & Bk3 of #JoyousJanuary #readathon is done. The 4th in the Cormaran Strike series, it isn‘t my favourite so far but it was still a good read. A mentally unwell young man asks Strike & Robin to investigate his memory of a murder. Lots of twists & turns & the interplay between Robin, her new husband & Strike was also entertaining. #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #BeatTheBacklist #ChunksterChallenge #ShelfOfShame👇

Bk6 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done. It‘s also the 2nd for #JoyousJanuary #readathon & my #Bookspin for January. Yay! Finally finished another book, my stats for Jan are awful so far. Though most were over 500pgs. I loved this the 1st time I read it & this time was no different. Very different from what he‘s famous for, both the plot & characters were well thought out & wonderful to read. Highly recommend. #BookspinBingo #LitsyAToZ2022👇

#JoyousJanuary #readathon Started a reread of this beautiful & chunky SciFi by the author of Eragon. I really should read that one day. I‘m so wiped by The Great Library Clean, mentally & physically, that I couldn‘t concentrate on a new book but a reread of a book I absolutely loved the 1st time sounded great. Already a third through & loving it just as much❤️ #JumpStart2022

A bigger shot of the library plus the two loungeroom bookcases. It‘s such a great feeling to have it clean. I‘ve told @Ciara_Rosey she needs to start her own business doing organising & cleaning, her near OCD skills are phenomenal!

Day10 of The Great Library Clean and we are DONE!! Finally. It looks and feels so good now, no clutter, no dust, no books jammed onto shelves wherever I could find room. And you can see the floor! I ended up culling 3 large tubs plus four bags of books and another bag my daughter took and a whole trailer full of rubbish went to the tip. Without @Ciara_Rosey I would‘nt have managed it, she‘s an absolute organising Angel. Love her so much❤️

Blackink_WhitePaper Wow 🤩 😍😻 looks amazing 4d
AmyG Wow! I want to come visit and check out all those books! 4d
TheAromaofBooks I'm always amazed, whenever I do any kind of clean-out, how much TRASH I find! I cleaned out the junk drawer and threw away multiple pieces of literal trash! Why did I put it in the drawer to start with!? The human mind is a mysterious thing 😂 Your new library looks gorgeous - I hope you have lots of down time coming up so you can enjoy the fruits of your labor!!! 4d
Lizpixie @Blackink_WhitePaper thank you! @AmyG anytime lovely🤗 @TheAromaofBooks I know right? The daughter was finding stuff, looking at me and saying “what the hell were you keeping this for??” I‘m SO grateful for her, it would‘ve stayed like that till I died without her help. Believe me, I‘m enjoying the hell out of it😍😍😍 3d

My time so far for the #JoyousJanuary #readathon is not great. So busy with The Great Library Clean plus spending time with my grandsons that reading has been put on the back burner😱I know. Bonus though is that once we‘re done,I‘ll be able to put my hands on any book that takes my fancy coz they‘ll be where they‘re supposed to be for a change! Taking a break from this really wordy SFF for now,might do a reread or a novella instead. #JumpStart2022

For the 2nd #WeekendReading of 2022 I‘m still working my way through Perdido Street Station, a Speculative Fiction set on the world of Bas-Lag in the city of New Crobuzon,a dingy metropolis peopled by numerous species from all over the galaxy.When a scientist unwittingly lets loose an alien terror, the city explodes with violence. It‘s a strange story but very compelling so far though not much reading was done today coz of The Great Library Clean!

Andrew65 Have a good weekend of reading. 1w

One hour into the #JoyousJanuary #readathon and I‘m only on Chapter Three.I‘m liking it but it‘s very word heavy so far “Lin‘s escapades-broadly hinted at, never denied, never made explicit-would be the subject of louche discussion and innuendo. Her love-life was an avant-garde transgression” So it‘s taking a bit more concentration to read but a lot of SciFi,especially classic SciFi, is like that.How are you doing in the first hour? #JumpStart2022

DrexEdit This one is well worth sticking with, if you can. Good Luck! 👍 1w

Bk5 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done. Wow. I blew through this in a day, I guess the day off was productive after all! I absolutely loved this 2nd book. Even though the MCs were different, it had a few side characters in common & the world it‘s in. Set in the HUGE Core General Hospital, it‘s about a rescue specialist doctor who has to save the entire hospital habitat from an insane computer virus. Fantastic! #BookspinBingo #Pop22👇

My lovely daughter @Ciara_Rosey is staying here for a few days with her love bug bub so she‘s helping me finally get to cleaning & organising my ridiculously overstuffed with riches library. Thank god! It had gotten to the point of being unable to reach shelves, of completely misplacing many books, double or triple stacked shelves & so much accumulated debris that I had a path to my chair & that‘s it. My names Liz & I‘m a junior hoarder🙋🏻‍♀️

I was having trouble settling on a next read so decided to reread the last in the All Souls trilogy in prep for the new season of the TV series on Saturday.

My #12thBookOf2021 for #December is this powerfully told little charmer of a novella from the queen of sentimental SciFi. A metaphorical tale of what exactly is life, told through the wanderings of a disenchanted Tea Monk searching for his purpose, & a wild-built sentient robot on the same journey. It was sweet, it was kind & as all her books do, it makes you think. Cannot wait for more! #12BooksOf2021

Kicking off my #JumpStart2022 I‘m hoping to start a great year by listening to the nicest man in Rock&Roll talk about his amazing life, while #audiojournaling my challenges. I love Dave Grohl! I loved Nirvana, then the Foo Fighters for their music but I fell in love with him when I saw his interview with a junior aussie reporter who was mega flustered but he was so kind that by the end they were talking like the only two people in the room. #20in4

My #9thBookOf2021 for #September is a reread. The 1st book of the Wheel Of Time series, It‘s been my favourite fantasy series since I picked it up in 1990. To the point of my original paperbacks falling apart with duct tape holding a few together. I‘ve lost count of how many times I‘ve reread them, I was so hoping the tv show would do it justice, but should‘ve known better. Sigh🙄 Highly, highly recommend. #12BooksOf2021

Andrew65 I need need need to read this series! 3w
BooksAreTheNewBlack Just finished this a couple days ago!! The ending is the tv show is just crazy. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 3w
Graywacke I enjoyed season one, but found it a strange effort. I read this one in 1990 too - but I haven‘t reread it. (!) 3w

My #8thBookOf2021 for #August was this female serial killer revenge story that I enjoyed maybe a bit too much. Scarlett is a professor at college who in her spare time hunts male sexual predators amongst the student & teacher population and making them pay. I‘m really hoping there‘s a 2nd book! #12BooksOf2021

I‘ve changed it up for my #January #Bookspin #Doublespin & #BookspinBingo list For the first month of 2022 I‘m making it all about prompts instead of actual titles. I‘m once again taking on a butt load of year long challenges so here‘s hoping I can cross off a prompt for quite a few of them. There‘s a master list of 2022 challenges here if you‘re interested?

Bk21 of December & #WinterGames2021 & Bk1 of #NewYearSpecial #20in4 #readathon is done. A cute little romcom with some witchy woman thrown in, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Reminds me a lot of Jenny Colgan with a touch of magic. Hope there‘s a bk2! #AVeryMerryBingo #TisTheReadson #AVeryMerryReadathon #WinterCosy #WrapItUpReadathon #DecembersBookBingo #StandaloneDecember #FairyTaleathonBingo #SeasonsOfReading #MistletoeManiacs #1,816pts👇

TheAromaofBooks This was one that as I was reading it I kept thinking “I really shouldn't be enjoying this because it's doing all these things that usually annoy me“... but for some reason it was just so fun that I just totally rolled with it! 3w
Lizpixie @TheAromaofBooks have you read any of Colgan‘s books? If you liked this you‘ll probably like hers👍 3w
TheAromaofBooks I actually don't think I have, although I have seen her name around. Do you have a favorite? 3w
Lizpixie @TheAromaofBooks I loved her Bookshop On The Corner & her Beach Street Bakery series. 3w

Scraped in by the skin of my teeth! Finally finished my #LitsyAtoZ for 2021 & filled in the Google form. One of my favourite year long challenges, I‘ve done it for every one of the five years it‘s been running. But I haven‘t seen any links to a 2022 challenge yet, are we on for next year? Does anyone know? #AbecedarianTBR

BookishMarginalia Yes, we are! I will post the new links on the 31st! 3w

The Nature of Witches | Rachel Griffin

My #7thBookOf2021 for #July is this beautiful book about elemental witches. Technically a YA novel, it‘s very well written about a boarding school for witches to teach them how to control their power whether it be Fire, water, earth or air. But once in a 100yrs or so, a witch will be born who can control all four. I really hope there‘s a sequel to this, witches are one of my favourite things to read about✨🍂 #12BooksOf2021

My #6thBookOf2021 for #June is the NF about the Sackler family & their Big Pharma company, Purdue. The discoverers of Oxycodone,their immoral & greedy pushing of the pain drug onto doctors & patients is the main cause of the hysteria surrounding prescription painkillers now. Which has not only caused a lot more addicts but has also affected those of us in severe chronic pain who are slowly being denied the meds we need just to live. #12BooksOf2021

My #5thBookOf2021 for #May is my top book of 2021 so far. If you like SciFi, even if you don‘t, pick this book up! Written by an author on the spectrum, her alien species are unique, using scent or colour to communicate in some cases with others that are only able to exist in certain space. I can‘t wait for the 2nd book in 2022🪐🚀 #12BooksOf2021

Near the Bone | Christina Henry

My #4thBookOf2021 for #April is this brilliant horror book by Christina Henry. I really liked her Alice series, but this book was an edge-of-your-seat white knuckle ride from the 1st page. I ended up tearing through it in 2hrs, I just couldn‘t put it down. The ending was worth every second. Highly highly recommend. #12BooksOf2021

My #3rdBookOf2021 for #March is the last in The Wayfarers series by Becky Chambers. Every book she‘s written so far has been amazing, this was no exception. Pei, Ashby‘s lover & an Aeluon whose race forbids inter-species relationships, is stranded on Gora, an interstellar “truck stop” when it‘s gates are blown up. Forced to spend time with a group of unrelated species, they all learn that underneath, they all are very similar. #12BooksOf2021

The #2ndBookOf2021 for #February was the first book of the DOSAB trilogy. I DNFed this a few years ago, but I guess it just wasn‘t the time for it coz when I picked it back up this year I absolutely loved it! A mix of magical realism, fantasy & horror, I ended up inhaling the entire series plus the novella A Night Of Cake & Puppets. Highly recommend. #12BooksOf2021

Andrew65 Great choice. 4w

Bk16 of December & #WinterGames2021 is done. This was my #AussieSecretSanta gift from @thegirlwiththelibrarybag & the 2nd in the Magpie Society duology. I have to say, I was a little bit underwhelmed. While the ending was a bit of a surprise, the writing itself felt rushed. Sorry Sharni! Maybe it was just me? Still an entertaining read. #AVeryMerryBingo #AVeryMerryReadathon #WinterCosy #WrapItUpReadathon #ClearUrShit #MistletoeManiacs 2,871pts👇
