⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Kate Winkler Dawson is a good story teller, and I enjoy this style of narrative non-fiction. She weaves together two threads from the same point in London history: the Great Smog of 1952 (responsible for the death of 12,000 citizens) and that of serial killer John Reginald “Reg” Christie (responsible for the death of - at least - 8 women).

I don't think I'll get getting a Bingo this month with how the layout ended up, but that's okay! I finished my #bookspin Book, Uprooted! 🎉 #bookspinbingo

Carol Gore definitely lives up to her namesake in vol. 2 of Rewind or Die. Casey Lovitt is trying to protect tourists from the outsized increasingly aggressive insects that are popping up randomly in her beloved wetlands. Her obnoxious sheriff brother, dependent mother & a scientist that she has developed a thing for keeps her busy when she's not dodging freakishly large insects. Another campy fun read from Rewind or Die!

Addison_Reads Just seeing this review made me think bugs were crawling on me again. It was such a fun read. 6h
vivastory @Addison_Reads I definitely scratched my neck a few times. Another good creepy creature read is Winters 4h
Megabooks Did you ever watch Monsters Inside Me on (I think) Animal Planet? Its old but in reruns/on streaming. It‘s about parasites (mainly) that cause mystery illnesses. I loved it to bring up the weird stuff I was learning in vet school. So fun. So gross. (edited) 44m

Bookzombie This was a lot of fun! 21m
vivastory @Megabooks OMG yes 😬😂 I remember one episode where a kid was stricken by a mysterious illness for months & hospitalized. He almost died & if I remember correctly it was because he had touched an armadillo. 6m
vivastory @Bookzombie I know you have read a few of the Rewind or Die books, have a favorite? 5m
Bookzombie @vivastory This is the only one I have read so far, although most of them are on my TBR. I think @Reggie might have read them all. now
vivastory @Bookzombie I'm really looking forward to the next one as I have heard it's one of the best & I have heard great things about Hailey Piper in general. (I read a short story by Piper in an anthology that I enjoyed, but have yet to read a longer piece) (edited) now
Bookzombie @vivastory I have heard great things about Piper too and that‘s the one I will pick up when I start another. She was on my #bookspin lists toward the end of last year and I just never got to it. now

This was a very thorough commentary on many of the outward practices of the Torah and issues surrounding them. McKee is known for his in depth research and writing in Messianic/ Hebrew Roots circles. Although this book was extremely informative on issue surrounding Torah observance, his first volume was more easily read and digested. For someone who has been in Torah observance a while, this book would be very beneficial @TheAromaofBooks #bookspin

Boo-yah!! I got a bingo!!! Granted, three of the books in that row are middle-grade books, but my Covid brain needed some light reading. 😅 I also managed to read both my #BookSpin, #DoubleSpin AND both of my #Roll100 choices, so I‘m feeling rather accomplished. Starting The Wine of Violence today and still whittling away at the Ina May book. We‘ll see if I can pull a second bingo off, but I‘m not holding my breath. 😜

PuddleJumper That's amazing! 12h
Kdgordon88 Well done! 🙌🏼 12h

A Shadow in the Ember | Jennifer L. Armentrout

This story is the prequel to the Blood and Ash series that I‘m obsessed with. I knew I was going to enjoy this book because a bookstagrammer had mentioned that it‘s very similar to the banter between Poppy and Casteel. I still wish the characters had felt somewhat different. The author did not step out of her comfort zone at all. There were some big prophecy moments at the end that finally started to pull everything together.

Zuhkeeyah @TheAromaofBooks January #bookspin complete! 15h

This is a pretty interesting series, set on a resort island in Sweden. Interesting mysteries, and nicely drawn characters. Setting is used well also.

#WeeklyForecast - continuing with the books on the right, although Homestead Kitchen is starting tomorrow. I am going to read the tagged book next, mostly because it is SHORT but this week's priorities are For the Wolf and The Magic of Ordinary Days, my January #LMPBC reads. Can't believe it's almost time to start adding February books to my windowsill!!! @Cinfhen

Cinfhen I‘m excited for February #BookSpin 🥳🥳🥳 16h
Bookzombie @Cinfhen Me too! I was working on my list last night. 😀 12h
