Finished my last 2023 read early this afternoon (The Rose Code by Kate Quinn) and this was my final count for the year.

I don‘t know if I will set a book goal for 2024.

Booksblanketsandahotbeverage I might try the page goal this year 🙃 3mo

My #Scarathlon2021 & October🎃 wrap up. My stats this month was:

✨Read 11 Magical Realism books
🔪Read 5 crime/mystery books
👻Read 4 horror books
🎨Read 1 graphic novel
🎧Listened to 7 audiobooks

My final #PointsTally for #Scarathlon2021 At the end of #Week4 my points were 12,889pts which gives me a #GrandTotal for the month of:


Not bad considering the poor start to it courtesy of my grandbaby Jaxon. Still, it was worth it to spend time with that gorgeous little chunker! How‘d your Scarathlon go?
EDIT: Once again I forgot some extra points. My updated final tally is now above 👆

Lizpixie Oh @Clwojick do we get extra points for any bingos? Coz if so, I haven‘t added that in🤔 2y
Clwojick You do! 20 points a row, and an extra 100 for a cleared board! 2y
Lizpixie @Clwojick well I have a ton of points I haven‘t added yet! I‘ll get to it now. 2y

Lizpixie @Clwojick can you add another 820pts to my tally please? And I was one off clearing a few boards too!😩 2y
Clwojick I‘ll do! 🖤🖤 2y
Clwojick Whoops! Will do! ❤️‍🔥 2y

My #Week3 points tally for #TeamSlaughter in #Scarathlon2021 is 13,531pts. Which brings my Total so far to 30,468pts! Not bad considering the slow start to the month(though I did have the best excuse. Jaxon is now 4 weeks old & thriving!) I‘ve read 16 bks & almost a 17th, watched 8 different movies/tv shows, read the team #buddyread & had a great time. Let‘s crush the last week team!🙌🎃🔪

TheSpineView Awesome 2y
aperfectmjk Nice job! 👏👏👏 2y
Clwojick Woohoo! Way to go! 🔥 ❤ 2y

My #Week2PointsTotal for #TeamSlaughter in this years #Scarathlon2021 is 13,726pts. Much better than last weeks total, my youngest is growing into being a mum and doesn‘t need me as much as she did, which is sad but also means more reading time!🙌 I have one more book to post but I finished it after midnight last night so I‘m adding it to next weeks tally instead.

Clwojick Wow! You‘re doing great! 👻 2y

So my #WeekOne points wrap up is 3,160pts for #TeamSlaughter in October‘s #Scarathlon2021 Would‘ve been a lot more if I hadn‘t been distracted by a 3.5kilos bundle of squishyness called Jaxon. How could I possibly read with that gorgeous little face making grunts & squeals at me? There‘s nothing like that newborn smell is there, I could sniff the top of his head forever but he probably wouldn‘t appreciate it much when he‘s 15!

Lizpixie I totally forgot to add the 51pts for posting my #Scarathlon TBR before October 1st! So my tally is really 3,211pts🙌 3y
Clwojick Oh my gosh! Me too! I‘ll have to adjust my points 🙈 Awesome job this week, ans congrats again Grandma! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ 3y

This is my #aprilwrapup. 13 books! I can‘t choose a favorite as most of these were good reads!

post image

I only managed to finish 9 books this month, and I have 2 others in progress, but considering I had only finished two books in the first two weeks of the month, I‘m not too sad. Plus, I loved all but one of the books I finished (the Steinhauer was disappointing) and I only bailed one other book.

I read 3 books and one short story. I'm currently reading one book and listening to two others that will spill over into August (I'm looking at you #GOT)
Best of July? Hmmm, I'd have to go with In the Shadow of Blackbirds.
