Finished my second #NewYearWhoDis pick. This one packs more substance than a typical fluffy romance. Shane and Eva had a complicated history as teens but are reunited for a second chance. I would have liked bit more from the story. Like what ultimately happens with the movie deal and whether the truth about Eva‘s mother is ever revealed to Audre. Overall a solid read. Remember, save a life and don‘t chew gum during self care time 🤣 #JoyousJanuary

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 7d

If you are a reader of Dana‘s first two books you are going to recognize her core principles reappear in this one. What I like about this book though is that it takes her concepts and breaks them down with specific examples in the form of the 100 strategies. She is down to earth and her writing is very approachable. I like listening to her audiobooks as I clean and even did so with this one. #BookSpinBingo

As I was switching out my water cooler bottle today I realized I never posted my #BFC2022 goals. I really was not up for measuring out every ounce in January so I just wanted to finish the 5 gallon bottle from the photo plus one. Halfway there already! Also I want to average 33 Fitbit active zone minutes per day and read 12 books for the month.

slategreyskies Oh, I forgot to do a #BFC post too! I‘ll make mine later this morning. Great goals you‘ve chosen! Best of luck with them! 🙌 1w

MatchlessMarie @ChaoticMissAdventures my recommendation would be to take your time with it and read a print or ebook copy not the audio like I did. I feel like this is a book that you need to study as you go because there are so many names and it‘s easy to get lost. 1w

GondorGirl This was a really cute book. It's not exactly a Christmas book (though it takes place during that season), so I don't think you'd need to wait until next December. 😁 2w

Finished this one earlier this week. First #NewYearWhoDis book is in the bag. It‘s sapphic Kate and Leopold. I really loved this story but it would be cool to read more about the other characters in this book‘s universe too. I actually had a call today at work come in and it was a lady on the subway so of course I was reminded to do this review 😅 #BookSpinBingo

Last book for #WinterGames finished yesterday. Read by Stanley Tucci which was a bonus. I remember reading Double Indemnity by the same author last year when the freeze started up in Texas. Is it a coincidence that I finish this one and we are about to have freezing weather the next few days 🤔 #WinterGames2021 #TeamGameSleigher 49 words for #WGWordSearch 137 words for #TreasureHunt #20in4

So hard to narrow down but here are 12 of my favorites from 2021. It‘s worth noting that 10 of these are audiobooks. And while I do love them, this year I am going to try to prioritize my print and kindle portion of my TBR. I don‘t allow myself to just be still and sit with a book too often and I‘d like to change that.

Last read of 2021, kinda. Ended up bailing at 55% because this Santa is a real douche. I liked the premise of a snarky Santa replying to letters from kids. This one started off funny but as you go you realize this Santa is downright cruel and needs to chill out. But this DNF got me a bingo at least so there‘s that. 😅 #BookSpinBingo #WinterGames #TeamGameSleighers #WrapItUpReadathon #20in4 219 words for #WGWordSearch 257 words for #TreasureHunt

Finished a #BookSpin from September! I started this one on Kindle and ultimately finished on audio because multitasking.

I was so excited to see this book in my #jolabokaflodswap box! When I opened it I landed on the page called Anxiety Tax and I resonate with that so much. It was too much text to paste but it‘s worth zooming in. Also I love these chocolates! I actually have a Lindt mug and it‘s one of my favorites. Thank you so much @Branwen and Happy Reading!
