Another one off my TBR. Again, why have I been holding on to this one for so long?! I feel very fortunate to have found 2 #slumpbusters in a row this month. They‘re going on the recommendation list for sure! #bookspin✔️ #doublespin✔️

TheAromaofBooks I really loved this one!! Haven't read the second book yet, though. 2w
Read-y_Picker @TheAromaofBooks I‘m so glad there‘s a second one to dive into straight away! 2w
TheAromaofBooks Yes!! The third is coming out this fall... I may wait to read the second one then! 😂 2w

I enjoyed this book so much that I kept putting it down! I got hooked very early on and wayyy too involved. It‘s my #bookspin for the month so ✔️ but it also took place partly in Egypt so pleasant surprise because I‘m still waiting for my #foodandlit2022 library holds.
And speaking of… homemade Egyptian falafel, pita, salad. I even made the tahini! And nowwwww food coma. Recipe links below ⬇️

TheAromaofBooks When I read this one, I literally had to print off information about the different tarot cards because I was sooo lost! 😂 2w
Read-y_Picker @TheAromaofBooks I remember that! I had meant to email you for the list… but I thoroughly enjoyed it just the same. 2w
TheAromaofBooks haha yes I went through the effort of putting together Maggie Stiefvater's explanations that she had posted on IG - it ended up being worth it because for some reason I read like three books in a row that all had tarot cards as a big part of what was going on! 2w
Read-y_Picker @TheAromaofBooks hah! I love when that happens! This summer I ended up reading How to Stop Time, The First fifteen Lives of Harry August and Resurrection Blues and was sooooo mixed up. Haven‘t gotten to Stiefvater yet but I will! I need to FINISH some series first. 2w

Is the key to success accountability? Possibly, so here are my January #BFC2022 aspirations.

📚read/finish at least 7 books
🏋🏻‍♀️ complete 30 minutes‘ intentional exercise 4x per week
🥗 incorporate more veg into our meal plan. I‘m also going to try and do better about food waste.
📓bring back the bullet journal. Nothing gives me piece of mind like being able to take, cross off and refer back to notes.

@wanderinglynn

wanderinglynn Great goals! 🙌🏻👏🏻 3w

First book of 2022 done! And that‘s the only thing worth remembering of this one.
I found it very sloppy, the characters were obnoxious, barely any development there. Cozy mysteries are a pretty new genre to me but this one was just way below expectations. The premise of the series could be good. I‘d look at the next in the series to see if the author was able to polish up her storytelling at all.

First #Bookspin list of the year!

@wideeyedreader you gave me quite a list to work with! Tons of variety and a few that I've already really enjoyed. Haven't yet decided which one I'm going to tackle first but I've got that copy of Gideon the Ninth that's been sitting in my library...

Thanks to everyone who hosted and posted and contributed to making the last year a little less isolating. I'm so looking forward to seeing what the new year brings.

Ringing in the year with one of my favourite activities: updating spreadsheets, getting ready for some new and ongoing challenges, including #Bookspin etc..., #Foodandlit22 and #NYWD22.

My 2021 wrap-up is in the comments.

I just wanted to say thanks again for the swap. I read The Devil and the Dark Water in November but didn't post about it. I don't know if you've read it but it was a great mystery and I really enjoyed it. Not too sure about the end result but the dénouement was a lot of fun!
3w
ulrichyumiodd Happy New Year!! I actually haven‘t read that book, but I might in the future! The two books did look interesting. How are you holding up with the restrictions and all? 3w
Read-y_Picker @ulrichyumiodd ugh I definitely have feeling about all this. I feel terribly for all those who have to close down again. I‘m sure the restos were really looking forward to New Year‘s Eve at least. I‘d been planning on a week in Rigaud with my fam but COVID had other plans and even though I ended up testing- I spent all week waiting for results. And then all this happened. I hope you got to enjoy the holidays! 3w
ulrichyumiodd I‘m a student and I work either as a teacher‘s assistant or a teacher myself, so not knowing what is happening is awful. You‘re right about the restos! It must be terrible for them too. I was lucky enough to see my parents and my little brother for Christmas, but of course now I have no idea when I‘ll exchange gifts with my friends! I‘m sorry your week in Rigaud didn‘t happen. Such a mess, all of this. 3w

I haven‘t read any Lovecraft in years but it must have stuck with me because parts of this novel were just so beautiful and familiar. Lots of really disturbing s*** going on there too. I had goosebumps through much of it. A solid read, I‘m looking forward to watching the adaptation next. 4.5🌟

Another great ghost story from Simone St. James! Multiple story lines that intertwine and all come together so cleanly in the end. 2 women who attended a now-closed girl‘s school decades apart were found murdered. A good look at how the presence and absence of family can both negatively impact a life. But the grass is always greener…. The audiobook version was great. 4🌟

Much of this read like a spooky cozy, so I was REALLY thrown when the horror kicked into overdrive. Still, it's a pick for me and the audiobook version was super well performed.

Read-y_Picker @Enchanted_Bibliophile @wanderinglynn Yes, i kind of agree but I enjoyed so much of it maybe I'm just too much of a wuss for the really scary parts? There were definitely other aspects that rubbed me the wrong way too, but I tried to just brush them off for the most part. One that comes to mind was to always mind your husband and never ask why. I personally just can't abide by that attitude but I understand it's out there... 4mo

Another long-standing one off my TBR. This was a lot of fun! The audio was a bit difficult to get into, as the author uses a lot of repetition. I had to rewind a few times just to make sure I wasn‘t hallucinating and the app wasn‘t glitching. I‘ll probably try to read the next one though.

Thanks to all of you raving about Empire of the Vampire for making this happen finally lol

One more, probably my last for September‘s #aam.
This is a cute collection of short stories revolving around a cottage and its various inhabitants over several generations. Really sweet and the audiobook was only about 6hrs but I found myself less interested as Hoffman brought the stories closer to modern times. Some of the enchantment was lost for me with the last few chapters. Still recommend 3.75🌟

Now to finish that other blackbird tale…

Mini #bookhaul!
I‘m generally not a re-reader but for the tagged I‘ll make an exception. Also pictured A Wrinkle in Time, which keeps coming up lately. It was one of my favourites growing up. I don‘t know how many times I must have read it but I don‘t remember a thing about it ☹️.

TiredLibrarian Currently re-reading A Wrinkle in Time 😊📖 4mo
Read-y_Picker @TiredLibrarian I saw! I really hope it holds up! 4mo

Ack!! It‘s the final stretch, the time of the month where I have to decide what direction to go on my bingo board, how many lines I can complete in the next week… 😫😭

Read-y_Picker @Cinfhen Already done, thanks! I'm just a bit nervous now because the 10 I have remaining are going to be a real challenge. 4mo
Cinfhen Uh oh…which prompts are you most nervous about?? 4mo

Read-y_Picker @Cinfhen I suffered a wicked dry spell for months and now I‘ve been mood reading a LOT so prompts like UN peacekeepers, Appalachian Noir, photos that don‘t normally fit in my genre… that‘s why they call it a challenge 😂 4mo
Cinfhen Hahaha, I hear ya!! For #AppalachianNoir I can recommend this one- it was good and not my normal genre either 4mo
Cinfhen I‘m a HUGE nonfiction reader and I love memoirs and this one was FABULOUS and has AWESOME photos 4mo
Read-y_Picker @Cinfhen Solid recommendations, thank you!!! I already checked my libraries and they both carry Blacktop Wasteland. I'm not a huge Elton fan but you did steer me in the right direction. I think I'll revisit a Patti Smith. I just love her! 4mo
Cinfhen Yay!! I‘m happy to offer other suggestions… and bails count too😉 4mo
Read-y_Picker @Cinfhen Game-changer lol 😏 4mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage I will second the recommendation on Blacktop - so gripping and well written. I see your response to the form, so we are alllll good! 4mo

Such a pick! Hauntingly good, I could hardly put it down. One more for #aam. And my first #bookspinbingo of the month!

Also, according to GR this one has been on my TBR since June 2015 🤯🥳

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 4mo
