Wrapping up October… I don‘t know where it went!

A bit of a book slump here, but I managed some comics and a junior book, and managed to stay môśtły caught up with môśt of my read-alongside.? (just pretend those are italicized). Anyway, on to another month!

🎃#Scarathlon; #Screamsthon; #BookSpinBingo #OminousOctober if I see more readathons, probably I will participate in them
🎃I like almost every vegetable😋They are part of my daily diet
🎃Family are okay! 🤎🧡Today, I finished my official training before the race and I‘m feeling great. I accomplished that step. I‘m reading amazing books and today, I bought a venti pumpkin spice coffee☕️ 😋
Thank you @Eggs @Kspenmoll for tagging me🧡🤎🎃

Eggs Thanks for joining in 📚👏🏻🎃 8mo

I‘m a season/mood reader but I think I am going to feel that fall vibe🍁🍂during the whole 2022 year. Many spooky/suspense/mystery books out there to read all year long👻

I have another stack of books that I will like to read this month😳because I forgot🙄 that usually I read an average of 10 books per month. I want to read faster😩I will try to read as much as I can. I have a couple of audiobooks from this stack of books. I use Scribd.

Gissy October 2021 books for:
#BookSpinBingo @TheAromaOfBooks
#Screamathon @4thhouseontheleft
#Scarathlon2021 #TeamHendrix @Staycurious
(50 points early bird tbr + 1 point for posting)
#Spooko‘weenread @TheSpineView

I also will participate in other YouTube readathons and activities.
TheSpineView 👍📖📚🧡🎃 8mo
marleed Boy I get it. You know how there‘s that whole Christmas in July thing. I may need an October in April so I can tackle my ghostly/thriller/mystery TBR because it seems like yet another year will go by before I actually read a Twilight book! 8mo

Gissy @marleed Mee too☺️We can read at least 1 or 2 spooky/thriller/suspense/mystery book per month to catch up with my spooky book stack🤗 I know that during the summer a YouTuber has a spooky readathon. 8mo
TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! 8mo
StayCurious Excellent! Great pic! 8mo

Hello, friends!! LESS THAN A WEEK UNTIL OCTOBER! 😳 2021 needs to CHILL as it is going WAY too fast!

I'm a little late with the reminder post this month as I was out of town last week!! I have been trying to stay caught up on my notifications but if you have posted a review or your October list & I did not COMMENT on your post, please tag me again as I may have missed it!!!

Please note that #BookSpin & #BookSpinBingo are considered ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) READATHONS for #Scarathlon2021 so for every hour you spend reading a book from your #BookSpinBingo list you get a bonus 10 points!!

If you want to play along for October, just post your list & tag me when you do (note: you do NOT have to be participating in #Scarathlon2021 in order to be a part of #BookSpin or #BookSpinBingo!!). Please remember that I create a NEW TAG LIST EVERY MONTH so if you want to join for October , even if you ⬇
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) even if you aren't making a new list, please either comment below or tag me when you post your list so you will get tagged on the 2nd!! I am tagging everyone who posted a September list even though some of you have already posted your October lists!!! If you want to participate this month, either post a list, comment below, or both!! Also please let me know if you want to skip a month but still get tagged for November's reminder. ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) Thank you all so much for your enthusiasm!! I absolutely love seeing everyone's lists & reviews every month. Hosting this challenge is so fun because all of YOU are so awesome!!!

Below: Basics/Housekeeping/Rambling that I post every month ⬇
See All 72 Comments
TheAromaofBooks 1. The rules for #BookSpin & #BookSpinBingo can be found at my masterpost that I created here - https://www.litsy.com/web/post/1989556 - but the basics are that if you want to play, make a list of 20 books you've been meaning to read & tag me when you post it!!
2. You do NOT have to participate in the Bingo part of the challenge if that isn't your thing!! You can read just the BookSpin or just the DoubleSpin or both, or however many books work ⬇
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) for you. Basically, choose the reading level that fits your life!! And feel free to change it from month to month!!

3. A NOTE ABOUT HOW I TAG PEOPLE: I have a rotating tag list, not a permanent one. I'm tagging all of Sept participants today, but today I am starting a NEW tag list. This means that if you would like to be tagged for October, either post your list (PLEASE tag me as I sadly do not have time to go through the hashtag!!) ⬇
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) OR let me know on this post that you still want tagged. I know some people don't make a new list every month, so please just let me know that you'd still like to be tagged. I know it's a little confusing, but it's my way of making sure I'm not tagging people who no longer wish to participate. Basically, you have to renew your #BookSpin subscription every month! 😂 ⬇ 8mo
TheAromaofBooks 4. If you want to take a month off but be tagged with the Nov. reminder post, that's fine, too - just let me know & I'll make it happen!!

5. When you post your list, please let me know if you also want to be tagged in the #BookSpinBingo post specifically.

6. Just a reminder that the rules here are pretty loose. If you have a huge/challenging book, feel free to let it take up more than one square (I gave Moby-Dick five slots last year!) ⬇
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) Some people struggle with having a super specific list & prefer to go with categories (i.e. library book, NetGalley, mystery, etc), which is also fine!! I have a participant who wants to makes sure she reads one physical book & one audiobook, so she makes a list of each & reads the #BookSpin number from the first list & #DoubleSpin from the second. Make this challenge work for you!! ⬇ 8mo
TheAromaofBooks 7. There is still plenty of time to get some books checked off your September lists, too!! And remember, if you didn‘t finish your “official” BS/DS books this month, you are welcome to finish them at a later date & still get credits for the giveaway – when you review the book, just let me know that it‘s from an earlier month. ⬇ 8mo
TheAromaofBooks 8. If you read your book(s) but just haven‘t gotten around to the reviews, you can still get credit – just comment on this post & let me know. I know the reviewing aspect is where some people get hung up, but I care more about the fact that you actually read it, not that you reviewed it!! ⬇ 8mo
TheAromaofBooks 9 (& final, geezy). Thank you all SO MUCH for your enthusiasm & for reading my rambly posts & for taking this challenge & making it your own. I LOVE seeing all the different ways people are making this challenge work for them!! Whether you use it to check off one book a month or 25, it's always fun to see at least a tiny dent in the never-ending TBR!! You all are THE BEST & I can't wait to see your lists for October!!! 8mo

I only read 4 books in October because I'm a slow reader but I enjoyed them😌I don't think November will be better since many things are occurring at this moment in my life, but I will try. Since I loved these suspense books, I just signed up for the #CreppyChristmasSwap @teebe Yes! 🎄🎅🏼👻👹💀👺☠️😈👽🤶🏻🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤
