Ready for July #bookspin! After the mood reads of last month, I'm leaving a little more wiggle room this time. Also, I've discovered that the last two 2022 Hugo Award Finalists I have left to read are continuations of series. Currently in catch up mode.

Cheers to a month of sunshine and good reads!

My July #bookspin list. I pretty much already have my reading chosen for the rest of the summer - I‘m headed to France with a friend in September, so I want to read books set in the places we will be visiting, plus a buddy read or two on a few vacations coming up. But, I‘m participating anyway. Maybe one or two of my planned reads will end up being a bookspin choice, and if not, I‘ll get to them once I‘ve finished my current reading list. ❤️📚

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! A trip to France sounds amazing!! 19m

My very messy shelf of books for #bookspin and #bookspinbingo for July! They are in stacks that make sense to only me but that‘s all that matters right. 🤣 I need to get my TBR shelf cleared off a little this month!

Title: Shell
Author: C K Brooke

"If I concentrate when it's late, I can hear the ocean. Or at least, I think I can. I close my eyes, stroking the seashell pendant at my collar. I long to experience the ocean. All year round, I hear and feel it's call in the whoosh of the waves."

I loved the book about the mermaid and how she found out she was one. The ending also made me cry.

RavenclawPrincess913 It's free on Amazon Kindle currently definitely recommend 6h

RavenclawPrincess913 @5feet.of.fury thanks this is first calf we lost too so its extra hard and just the couple days he was here I got so attached and he was only trying when I was out there and feeling guilt right now cause he died when I was gone at doctors whole day 😭 1d
5feet.of.fury @RavenclawPrincess913 I used to take in feral kittens and it‘s so hard when animals are so young, it can go from bad to worse in moments 💔 ugh, you have to take care of yourself too, without you he likely wouldn‘t have had even a chance. But I know it‘s so hard, you have my sympathies 1d

1. I‘ve been really trying to read something new off of my bookshelf. Pretty much a roll of the dice.

2. I usually rate something based on how much it sucks me in. Is it one I couldn‘t put down? Were there any amazing twists? Did it flow well?

3. Today and every day I‘m grateful that after 7 years of trying, we have a baby boy due in December.

Hey All,

Sorry for the info dump. I am almost caught up. I should just have 3 books I need to finish tonight and 2 I DNFed.

Also i don't want anyone to think I have not been thinking about the #BBRC. I have. The new list was posted to The Story Graph earlier today. The new list is here and I will post more info tomorrow and start to post my results soon

https://app.thestorygraph.com/reading_challenges/7f60b62a-efd1-4581-b8d4-a32d64f...

LibrarianRyan For those doing the challenge that ends TOMORROW, GET YOUR LISTS IN THE STORY GRAPH. It will not let you add to the list after tomorrow (learned that one the hard way). I need to see who completed so I can send out prizes. 2d
Librarybelle I‘m not going to finish this year‘s challenge, but I think I‘m closer than other years. Thanks for hosting, and I‘m definitely signing up for the next one! (And thanks for introducing me to StoryGraph through this year‘s…I‘m loving it!) 2d
LibrarianRyan @Librarybelle I am finishing by the skin of my teeth. I am glad you love it. Hope you like this prompts.

I‘m thinking about joining Book of the Month. I feel like lately the books have looked tempting and it could be a fun thing to look forward to each month! Does anyone have a code they want me to use that benefits you? 😉 Otherwise I can totally sign up on my own, but I‘d be happy to help a fellow Litten if I can.

Update: I signed up for #botm (thanks @Graciouswarriorprincess !) and my first book will be the Gabrielle Zevin one! Yay!

Graciouswarriorprincess I do. I will send it in a moment! :) 3d

#WondrousWednesday @Eggs Thanks for the tag!

1. I‘m reading books on my shelf that I have already chosen to read.

2. In order to make my shelf, my books need to have a 4 star rating before they hit my shelf. Sometimes my rating is higher or lower based on the book after I have read it!

3. I am grateful for all the books on my shelf!

*Hypothetical* question...if I started an Etsy shop where you gave me a little bit of info and I sent you a hand-selected "blind date" book with fun goodies like stickers and bookmarks, is that something you'd be interested in?

Hypothetically, of course. I'm totally not getting some books ready to ship as I type this so I can start a side hustle to supplement my meager teaching salary or anything like that. ?

Texreader This could be my study! Scrapbooking paper, bookshelves, Baby Yoda…. Check! Except yours is way neater! As for your question, possibly. 3d
thegreensofa I would (in Australia), and maybe gently-used secondhand books. 🙂 3d
Rachel.Rencher @thegreensofa They will be new or gently-used! I'll have to figure out international shipping (not sure if it costs an arm and a leg), but thank you for your interest! 🥰 3d

JamieArc Personally, I‘m not super into the blind date with a book thing, but I could totally be enticed by cute bookish things like bookmarks and stickers. I really like buying bookmarks from Littens‘ Etsy shops, so you could count on me! 3d
Kimberlone I think it‘s a fantastic idea! 3d
sprainedbrain I absolutely would! I love blind date with a book. 2d

Updated list for July.

My #bookspin book was _Promise of Summer_ by Louisa Rawlings, which was enjoyable in an old skool romance way.

#doublespin was _the Iron Hunt_ by Marjorie Liu, chosen by random number generator from my library wish list, and I just wasn't in the mood for it and DNF'd. I'm not the big on urban fantasy.

I did read an extra book from my list, _Beautiful Mornin'_, which is one I owned and am happy to get off the shelf!

willaful Ooops, I see I forgot a replacement for Beautiful Mornin'. Um... an adult book by Noel Streatfeild. 3d

So this is my list for #BookSpin, #DoubleSpin and #BookSpinBingo

Books 1 - 7 are buddy reads happening here on Litsy in July.
Books 8 - 17, maybe even 18 are potential reads for #foodandlit #France

I own most of these books and some have even been on my tbr longer than I like to think about.
