"When Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray met at church bingo in 1963, it was love at first sight. Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families. Decades later, now in their mid-'60s, Hazel and Mari reunite again at a church bingo hall. Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage."--Amazon.com.

I needed a palette cleanser after my last read so I turned to this sweet little graphic romance. Mari and Hazel are separated in their youth but reunited 50 years later - the art was so lovely but the story moved a little too quickly in places for my taste. Another 10 pages would have really helped with that.

Managed to eke out four #BookspinBingo lines this month. I had one bail and one hibernation. None of these were 5⭐️, but my center square (Burnt Shadows by Kamila Shamsie - review later today) came pretty darn close and was my only 4.75⭐️ this month! Thanks for sending it @BarbaraBB 💜💜

I never know whether to count books I finish on the 1st in that month or the prior one. 🤔 So I guess The Passenger, a surprise hit, squeaks in here. Six bingos and one of my best print months ever! Louise Erdrich was a hit and so was Kent Haruf. Can‘t wait to read more from both! #BookspinBingo

Cinfhen Fabulous!!!! 1y
squirrelbrain Yay - a great month! (I always count a book in the month that I finish it) 1y

Hooked_on_books Wow, you liked the Passenger, huh? Well that‘s good! I liked parts of it but overall wasn‘t a fan. But I really liked Stella Maris quite a bit. I‘ll be interested to see what you think if you tackle that one. 1y
Megabooks @Hooked_on_books it took me 200 pages to get into it, but once it did click, I very much enjoyed it. I‘m planning on reading SM this month. 1y

#12BooksOf2022 @Andrew65

My favorite book of June was this graphic novel about two ladies who get a second chance at love.

Honorable mentions to The Kite Runner graphic novel. Very good story, but again, I just can't say that human suffering is my favorite.

Andrew65 Looks a fun read. 1y

Proof 4 bingo cards. Black lines are new bingos. Orange are last week.

#teammonstermash #scarathlon2022 @StayCurious

AnnR @LibrarianRyan For the Hocus Pocus Bingo and the 'Host Favorite' square (lower right corner), did you have the good fortune of finding a list of fav books or vlog, made by the host? Several of us have tried and couldn't find anything. In my case, I just used a book based on another user's suggestion for that square but I'm not sure if it is correct or not. Just thought I'd ask as maybe you could solve the mystery square. Thanks. 🙂🎃 2y
LibrarianRyan 💓@Ann_Reads okay, now I feel dumb. I read it as Hot Favorite, not Host. So i just picked a book I really enjoyed. 💀 2y
AnnR @LibrarianRyan LOL!!! Even better. I love that category!!! Not to worry, as it seems that whole square is just problematic for everyone. Out of frustration, I finally decided this morning to rename it the 'mystery square' & used a murder/mystery book. I am now uncertain as to what the original host intended and there isn't a link-back listed on the bingo card. Thanks so much for prompt reply. 🎃 Tagging @PageShifter, so she'll hopefully see this. 2y
PageShifter Thank you @Ann_Read and @LibrarianRyan ! There is readathon-username on IG but it hasn't been active. I love your comments, I laughed so much 🤣 2y

A day full of tedious data entry & decision updates means a creativity break was in order. I finally made my August #bookspinbingo board. Thanks to #WomenInTranslation month, my theme is loosely "travel" but it's starting to feel more like "Get me out of here, I want to go anywhere & everywhere".?

When it rains it pours…my root canal went well today, and my nerve pain is gone. I‘m just a bit sore, so yay!! 🎉🎉

BUT…our freezer stopped working tonight. 👎🏻👎🏻 HOWEVER we have a wonderful neighbor with room in her freezer, 💜💜 AND I was really good at Tetris, and the skills are still there so it all fit! 🎉🎉

Long story short…I finally finished my #bookspinbingo board! 😂😂

This wasn‘t my best month for print books, but I did manage one #BookspinBingo and finished both my #bookspin and #doublespin, so I‘m pleased. 👍🏻 There were two 5⭐️ books: Tomorrow & Tomorrow & Tomorrow and Heartbroke!

Waiting on #botm to drop to put out my August list. ⏰

jlhammar Yes, really surprised #BOTM for August haven‘t dropped yet. They rarely wait until the 1st. I guess we have that to look forward to tomorrow. 2y
Megabooks @jlhammar @Reviewsbylola told me over on Instagram that the original drop date was Thursday the 28th, but for some reason it was moved to the 1st. I wonder if this is a permanent thing or not. 🤔🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
TheAromaofBooks Fabulous month!! I've also been waiting for BOTM to drop... I like it better when it's a few days early! 😂 2y

Finally getting my June recap together. I read eight planned books plus my March #doublespin Split-Second Courage, smut thanks to Vi Keeland's Bossman, The Kite Runner graphic novel, and the tagged graphic novel. I am convinced November & December might just be me finally getting to the BookSpin & DoubleSpin books I've neglected.

Very fortuitous that the two #CampLitsy reads are in the same column (middle). Going to try for my first bingo there…I‘m also in the middle of Ghost Lover, which is short stories… 🤔🤔
