The Virgil spine might be speaking to me, but Virgil is not. I just don‘t have the brain capacity for this right now. However I‘m loving every single second I‘m spending reading Du Maurier, and that spine is at least as incredible. Since I started doing categories I‘ve always picked my books for the month right when the numbers came out, and changing them feels a bit like cheating, so I could just DNF The Aeneid and be done with my #bookspin ⬇️

IndoorDame for the month, but my other thought on a classic this month was Hugo. I‘ve been steadily losing steam on this one since I picked it up again in Jan, but I‘m determined to finish the last 300 pgs this month and could probably use the extra motivation of making it my #doublespin. What do you say @TheAromaofBooks ? 2w
TheAromaofBooks I tend to be pretty loosey goosey, so I say go with what works for you!! I'm totally fine with you switching to something that better fits your goals for the month!! 2w
IndoorDame @TheAromaofBooks awesome!!! I‘m gonna switch it up then 😁🥰 2w

Waking up to new numbers on #bookspin morning is always so exciting!!! The spin gods clearly like my new This Spine Is Calling To Me category, cause since I started using it in January one of the numbers has landed on it 3 out of 4 months! After reading Galatea yesterday I think I‘m in a Greek mood & this Virgil spine is everything! #Doublespin fell on Classic, & #hashtagbrigade just started Rebecca which is one of my all time favorite classics.

TheAromaofBooks Oooooo that IS a good spine!!! Enjoy!! 3w
Bookbuyingaddict What pretty 🤩 covers ☺️ 3w
Caryl What a gorgeous edition of Rebecca! 😍 3w
IndoorDame @Caryl thanks! Usually I look for used classics, but this was one of my splurges 😁 3w

Good morning, everyone! The moment you have all been waiting for!! Our official #BookSpin number is ELEVEN! Our official #DoubleSpin number is TWO!! I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at everyone‘s lists & am really looking forward to seeing your reviews!!

My next post will be the #BookSpinBingo card. I am NOT tagging anyone on that post!! If you want to bingo, please just check my profile for the card. This saves me having to double tag ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont‘d) everyone/keep track of who wants to bingo and who doesn‘t!!

I use the same tag list for the entire year, so if you would like to be added or removed, please just let me know. It takes me a while to tag everyone (there are over 200 of you!!!) so I will add “FINISHED” to the last tag batch so you know whether or not I missed you. If I did, it was completely inadvertent. Sometimes I just spell someone‘s username wrong. ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) have time to reply to them all!! Thank you all so much for your enthusiasm and for making this challenge SO much fun!!

I'm going to post the Bingo board, and then come back and start the tag list on this post. Happy reading!!!

Luis attends a “progressive” high school, but he can‘t go to prom with his boyfriend. Same-sex couples aren‘t allowed because of what happened on prom night in 1985 to a boy named Chaz, a closeted student. Luis takes a hit to the head and time travels to 1985, where it becomes apparent that he‘s there to save Chaz. He has to figure out how to do that, attend school with his parents, and navigate life in the 80s! Loved all the 80s references!

ShyBookOwl That sounds so fun! 11mo
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 11mo

My #Bookspin / #BookspinBingo list for January. 🥳

The first seven ones would be rereads for me I'm just in the mood for. All of these I either especially enjoyed (and I would like to see whether I still enjoy them as much) or fit my mood atm.
Let's hope 2022 reading will be more fun and successful than last year's...

Happy 2022 to all of you, dear fellow Littens!
✨✨✨

@TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! 2y
Nute Happy New Year, Samantha!💜🥳💜 Cheers to having a lot more fun in 2022! 2y

An upcoming funny, witty LGBT+ YA coming of age with a social theme. Progressive Luis attends a liberal academy along the outskirts of a conservative town. When a controversy arises concerning him attending prom with his boyfriend, he bumps his head and lands in the 80's where he must solve a mystery
concerning an alleged gay student while changing things for the future. Time travel and activism makes this one to watch.

katy4peas Oh, that sounds like great fun! 3y
