Here‘s my #bookspin, #doublespin, and #bookspinbingo books. It‘s doing double duty for my early bird points for #scarathlon2022 and #teammonstermash. I‘ve been on and off Litsy all year, so I‘m super excited to jump back in for this!

I really wanted to love this one. I had never heard of Elizabeth Blackwell (the first woman to receive a medical degree in the United States), so I thought I would be so interested in this book. I just found it hard to keep picking it up. The Information was good, but something was missing #aboutsisters #booked2022

Cinfhen Cool choice! I wanted to read this one too, but I saw other reviews who felt the same way as you. 6mo

Anyone else in DAR or love looking into their family history? I gave my patriot story this year and he fought in the Battle of Kings Mountain. I‘ve never read a book that mentioned a battle that I know my ancestor fought in. I love this series and am so excited to continue reading this book to see how the battle fits in to Jaime and Claire‘s story

Need a fast, hilarious, mystery series to read? This one is fantastic and all 5 books are included in your audible membership. Henry Bins is only awake an hour a day and in the first book, he witnesses a murder that he must solve. He develops a laugh out loud relationship with a cat and works to solve a mystery with only an hour a day. Can‘t wait for the next book this summer! #19822022 #2013 #2014 #2015 #2016 #doublespin #february

So for the #19822022 challenge I decided to finally read the A is for Alibi series! I am absolutely loving them! I love Kinsey‘s attitude and the cases she solves. It‘s a great series so far and I‘m so glad I‘ve started finally. My library does a tailored titles every weekand when I put this series on there, they suggested One for the Money, which I‘ve loved for years, so this series is a perfect fit! #1982 #1985 #1986 #1987

Librarybelle Hooray! I enjoyed A is for Alibi and need to get back to the series! 6mo

This weekend is all about staying inside and getting house projects done. We‘ve been on the go since the summer it feels like, so it‘s time to have some quiet weekends at home. Looking at making a dent in this one and attempting to finish my audiobook (The Right to Arm Bears) while working on the house projects #weekendreading

Well Kristin Hannah managed to bring tears to my eyes again. This was my DAR chapter‘s book club pick and I think it‘s going to be a great discussion. While fiction, I feel like I learned a good deal about the Dust Bowl and the struggles they faced #booked2022 #weathertermintitle #19822022 #2021 Plus this was my one physical book I wanted to complete this month for #bfc2022

A fun, light Christmas romance that is to be expected from Macomber! A woman decides to kill her Scrooge neighbor with kindness for the twelve days of Christmas. 14 readathons equals 445 points for #mistletoemaniacs in #wintergames2021 #bookspinbingo #averymerryreadathon #wintercosy #littenlistenaudioathon #averymerrybingo

I wanted to love this one but I had a hard time connecting to the characters. It may be that I haven‘t read the other books in the series, but I couldn‘t pass up on the team read for #mistletoemanics and #wintergames. The overall plot was good and I enjoyed reading a cozy mystery amongst all of the fun, romance Christmas books #bookspinbingo #seriesread #averymerrybingo #averymerryreadathon #wintercosy

MidnightBookGirl It's definitely better if you read the first two in the series!

I just couldn‘t get into this one. However, I think if the right person would read it, it would be a good book. I really wanted to love it and there‘s a cliffhanger at the end, but I don‘t think my curiosity will ever be strong enough to pick up the next one. Still thankful for #booked2021 for pushing me to read outside my comfort zone #latinxauthor #seriesread #litsyatoz #c

Cinfhen Glad you pushed yourself to try something new….sorry it didn‘t work for you 13mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage I get that. This should‘ve been I‘m wheelhouse and I still didn‘t like it. But some people did and the author has already written a few more in the series. Such is reading! 13mo

Finished this one with my drink in hand before kicking off football season tonight! This book was an emotional rollercoaster. I went from loving it, to hating it and back and forth so many times. It was honestly hard to get through some parts. However, I feel good about the ending and would recommend to someone if they are looking for a book that challenges you to think about your choices. #litsyatoz #i

I was really enjoying this book but then there we two plot twists in the last 40 pages that felt forced. It felt like the author wanted to say a lot of things in very few pages. Not a bad read, just not a great one. Definitely a fast, easy read for #litsyatoz #x and my #doublespin book

Perfect! This picked up right where the first one ended. A little bit of magic, battles, justice and romance. This book alternated between two perspectives, which added a bit more than the first book. I think this series will only be the two books and I think that‘s just fine!

I love this series! While keeping me interested with twists and turns, it also just makes me laugh at times. I had to request that my library obtain a copy (and they bought it within a few days!) plus it has fewer reviews than a lot of popular books so I‘m using it for #underrated for #booked2021. As a side note, I stumbled on this series because of a prompt for #booked2020 and am so glad I did. #litsyatoz #f #seriesread

I was really enjoying this for what it was (a romance book for sure) but then there was a blow up with a best friend over a guy and I just couldn‘t. Friends since elementary school and a guy came in and ruined the relationship. I won‘t spoil whether they get over it or not, but regardless of whether they made up or not, I‘m still not a fan of the fight in general. #booked2021 #mustacheonthecover #litsyatoz #r
