This is my provisional stack for #WinterGames but know there will be others I read not on this list, and some on this list I‘m sure I won‘t get to. Let‘s do this everybody. ‘It‘s Christmas‘

It's nearly time for #wintergames to start #snowflakesquad Are you ready?
Sorry, I haven't been very active. I've had a cough for the last two weeks and I'm still pretty exhausted.
1) Something short, I've got a few KU romances under 200 pages
2) I'm working in the morning and then I'm probably sleeping! 🤣 I've got to post the #castthedie rolls
3) Wrapping presents because I've forgotten what I've bought people
Hey #TeamReindeerGamers Last day to get those #EarlyBirdPoints #WinterGames officially starts tomorrow. I will be posting the first game for week one in the morning. Don't forget to tag me with your photo challenges, your reads, and keep your eyes peeled for the #BuddyReads Keep track of those points. @Clwojick @StayCurious 🎄🎁⬇️
Aaaand here‘s the companion bingo board, long dark nights. I love a dark Christmas, I love horror and folklore and spooky things waiting in forests. I‘d love if anyone wanted to join me for #wintergames 🌲🌲🌲
Just a reminder for anyone looking for #wintergames bingo boards or readathons that my Bright Cold Days bingo is all about bright snow, family, togetherness and food and the companion bingo board is all about long dark nights, ghosts and storms. I‘m excited to see what people come up with to fit these! I‘d love for anyone to participate 🥰
Aaaand here's my #WinterGames TBR list! The font is tiny because I screenshot my spreadsheet and I know there's no way I'll read them all but I'm a massive mood reader and I need options! #SantasBookshELVES 🎄📚💖
Final #bookspin #doublespin #bookspinbingo of 2023 😱
Tagging others in this post cos I signed up to #wintergames last week and haven‘t been tagged in any posts so just wanted to check I‘m not too late and can join in 🙏🎄
Hey #TeamReindeerGamers. 3 more days, and the games begin. I hope you have been doing your #EarlyBird and keeping track of those points. Here is the #WinterGames #WordSearch for all those books you are going to read in Dec. Each word you find is worth 10 pts each. @annahenke @kezzlou85 @JessClark78 @Karons1 @TorieStorieS @MatchlessMarie @aperfectmjk @Bluebird
Sorry this has gone up late, I‘ve been ill or week and mostly been sleeping.
You‘ll have been tagged in a comment with the name of the Litsy user you are picking for, their list, and how many books you can pick, for example;
@PuddleJumper - Pigpen_Reads (LINK) 5
Puddlejumper is picking 5 books for Pigpen_Reads from the provided link.
You have until Thursday December 30th to pick the books and post them.
Hey team! Here‘s a bit about me:
1. I‘m excited for a super fun staff party at my school. #litsyteachers
2. Sharing my reading adventures, the games and a few holiday movies!
3. On my comfy couch, with a fuzzy blanket, a dog on my lap and a great book. Alternatively, listening to an audiobook while crafting.

One more bingo board for #wintergames that I'm reposting for team #snowangels! This one is hosted by the wonderful @alldebooks and is a board for short stories so it should be super easy to fit quick little reads on these themes in. I have a lot of Christmas ghost story collections and all Carol Ann Duffy's little Christmas books so I'm veeeery excited. #midwintersolaceshortstoryboard
1. I‘m neopagan, so lighting candles on Yule is always a good time. My boyf has also found out about Jolabokaflod and we‘re gonna start this year since we‘re currently long distance.
2. Finishing out 2023 strong! I‘ve hit a slump this month that I‘m excited to crawl out of.
3. Picture this: a bay window seat, it‘s snowing. My cat on my lap, so many blankets. A snack board and some eggnog. And I‘m off work. Heaven lol
Hello #snowangels teammates! I look forward to reading everyone‘s responses.
1) Little Christmas Eve-a Norwegian tradition my husband brought with him when he immigrated-where we celebrate by opening one present, opening presents on Christmas Eve, and stocking stuffers on Christmas morning
2) I ❤️ spelling as many words as possible!
3) Cozy PJs, drinking hot chocolate with my 🐈⬛ in my lap, with some good music in the background
Ahoy #snowangels! We've got another photo challenge coming up for December and I am so excited to come up with some bookish photos for these prompts!
Thank you so much @eggs and @alwaysbeenaloverofbooks for hosting 😍
@Emilymdxn #WinterGames #SnowAngels ❄
1 spending time with family, watching the Christmas play at Church, eating all the snacks.
2 seeing what everyone else is reading, the photo challenges.
3 the window seat on a train would be amazing, I'm usually in my recliner under a blanket.
Hi #snowangels ❄️❄️❄️ we‘re so close to #wintergames so I thought it would be nice to get to know each other a little! I just watched my first Christmas movies of the season yesterday so I‘m very in the mood!
1. I have so many! I have a lot of traditions with different friends, my partner, and my family. My best bookish one is my big annual Foyles trip with my friend Mollie.

Welcome to #snowflakesquad for the 2023 #wintergames
I am your team leader this year. Follow me for updates and information as we‘ve got a lot of winter fun coming soon!
The two team reads are How to Excavate a Heart by Jake Maia Arlow and The 12 Days of Murder by Andreina Cordani. You get 50 points if you read one of these books.
There is also a team film this year which is Arthur Christmas (one of my favourite Christmas films!)
I found out about this event that‘s happening in December. This sounds like fun. I signed up for it. This will be my first time participating. I‘m not ready for Christmas yet. I still want to read spooky books. If I want to, I can read them during Christmas. At my house, my mom and I don‘t start decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving.
If anyone else is feeling #scarathlon withdrawal already (I know I am) it‘s never too early to sign up and get excited for this year‘s #wintergames
I love every single thing shout Christmas and when I‘m wrapping my presents with a terrible holiday Rom com on i love having my winter games spreadsheet open and my points stacking up! @StayCurious @Clwojick
And, here comes the next one! Reposting for @Clwojick and @StayCurious. ⛄️
“I know you‘ve all been waiting for this! #WinterGames 2023 sign ups are NOW OPEN! Please share to spread the word. Can‘t wait to get the festive party started! 💚“
Repost for @Clwojick & @StayCurious
We are sad to announce that due to personal schedules, this years #WinterGames will be cancelled. Unfortunately we simply won‘t be able to host the event, and give it all the effort and attention it deserves. We are so sorry, as we know many of you look forward to it each year, but we‘ll will be back at it in 2023. Best of luck with your end of year reading goals, and we wish you the happiest of holidays. ❤️
