Spin the Dawn | Elizabeth Lim

This is the first book in the Blood of Stars series by Elizabeth Lim. I liked that the heroine (pretending to be her brother) was a seamstress and made beautiful garments with her grandmother‘s magic scissors. There‘s also an enchanter who discovers her secret. I am anxious to read Book #2! #52 #BookSpin #25 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #BOOKED2022 set in China #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE Mulan #SERIES2022 #Pantone2022Colour BlueberrySpicyMustard #TheRoyalReadathon

With the exception of 4 bingos, I was successful hitting my April goals.
For May, I‘m increasing my step goal & adding a sleep goal.

Meagan Spooner as well as the narrator on this audiobook version outdid themselves! This was exciting, full of adventure and my kind of romance. “Long live Robin Hood!” #48 #BFC22 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE RobinHood #20in4 #Pantone2022Colour QuietShade/Amazon #Hikeathonreads #TheRoyalReadathon

The Wild Robot | Peter Brown

Read the first of these 2 books for a Nature read for #Hikeathon and HAD to read the sequel to find out what happened to ROZ, the Wild Robot! The story fed the geeky part of my brain and also warmed the mother in me. That‘s all I will say, but you should listen/read these. The narrator was fantastic, too. #46 & #47 #BookSpin #24 & #25 #BFC22 #SERIES2022 #Pantone2022Colour Loden Frost & Chiseled Stone #Hikeathon #MiddleGradeReads

Letters to the Lost | Brigid Kemmerer
post image
Pickpick

I‘m trying to read as much of Brigid Kemmerer‘s backlist as I can. How does she get teenagers so well. This is a great story - two young people, a guy and a girl, are suffering from the loss of someone dear to them, blaming themselves, but they find each other - not in person - but through letters, then emails. It really touched my heart. It‘s so good. #45 #BookSpin #21 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #SERIES2022 #Pantone2022 Blueberry #Hikeathonreads

Lisa See is brilliant! This is a terribly wonderful book. It is about two women whose love for each other is all-encompassing, then the tragedies of their lives in Korea and just in life separate them. You just have to read the book to understand. It‘s so good. #44 #BookSpin #9 #BFC22 #BOOKED2022 eco-feminist #2022AUTHORAMONTH March #Pantone2022Colour FragileSprout #Hikeathon

Cinfhen I tried reading this awhile back & couldn‘t get into it! Your review makes me want to try again 😁 1mo
Allylu @Cinfhen I listened to the audiobook which gives perspective. As I said, some of the things that happened were terrible, but I cried at the end because I was so moved. 1mo

I‘m a big fan of researching my ancestors and their stories so this book was fascinating for me. It was also very romantic and heart-wrenching. What a story! A chance meeting leading to a life-long love. #42 #BookSpinBingo #8 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #AwesomeApril #Pantone2022Colours

I really enjoy these stories about the people of Hagenheim by Melanie Dickerson! They are so exciting, clean and romantic and I love how the characters from other books pop up here and there. This one is a Cinderella retelling. I want to read them all! #41 #BookSpinBingo #14 #BFC22 #BOOKED2022 Royal #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #AwesomeApril #Pantone2022Colours Northern Droplet

The Left Hand of Darkness | Ursula K. LeGuin

It's been a p exhausting week (a mix of great and not so fun) but I am HERE with my #BFC22 March review!

In March I read 3 books and started a 4th/5th, took the month off for the most part with yoga/Blogilates to allow my body to recover properly from Covid but got going again in the last week or so there & I've really enjoyed the Mindful March calendar😊

For April, my goal is to keep listening to my body and going with what it needs!😊
