#20in4 #Readathon

My overall goals:
1️⃣ Finish CANNERY ROW. (#AuthoraMonth)
2️⃣ Get to 25-30% in WAR AND PEACE (the never-ending #chunkster).

That should take around 20 hours, I think. If not, then next on my list is INTERRED WITH THEIR BONES.

Thanks for hosting, @Andrew65. 🤗

Well, this #chunkster of 710 pages could've seriously been half that! The first half was decent but yikes for the rest. I'm beginning to remember why I tapped out on this series. Oh well, on to the next. Hopefully there will be a tad more substance with the next one.

5feet.of.fury I remember this one. It took them SO LONG to get to Ireland! The 1st half of the book had no plot 😂 3d
5feet.of.fury That last few are averaging much shorter, and I‘m glad. There was a huge amount of time spent going on about nothing. 3d
PuddleJumper I tapped out after Micah. Couldn't deal with it and it used to be my favourite series as a teenager 🤣 3d
Bookzombie I haven‘t got to this one yet. My next one is Blood Noir but she could tighten them up. 🙂 2d

I am loving this series now. I almost bailed with the first two books and I'm glad I've kept on reading. Amazing world building and I'm loving how the various characters are changing and how that makes the story itself evolve. #chunkster #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 7d

I was able to read this as an ARC and I have to tell you this #chunkster was full of world-building, secrets, romance, dragons and tension. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 read for me. I found this fantasy book to be rather creative and different which, for me who reads so much a treat. This one comes out in May. I suggest you keep your eye out for it.

Soubhiville Thanks, I will! 1w

This was my #gimmeallthespice book club pick and it lived up to the book club's name! Super easy read and I loved Charlie and how she was different from a lot of omega females that are written. This is a why choose romance with hockey elements and plenty of spice. Do mind the TW's #bookspin #chunkster #LittensLoveRomance @TheAromaofBooks

To be totally honest the first two books weren't the best when compared to her other titles. Now this one was soo good! This #chunkster was full of character growth, new characters and a plot that has left me picking up the rest of the series. If you haven't read Sarah J Maas you need to! #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

This book is 862 pages of a #chunkster read and I was there for every moment of it. This is a fantasy read that really defines the genre. I LOVED The Priory of the Orange Tree and worried this prequel wouldn't hold up. It did and more to be honest. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 read.

Meshell1313 Oooh yay!! I‘m diving into it soon! Want to make sure I have the time to really enjoy it 3w
KristiAhlers @Meshell1313 I went into work last Tuesday an hour early so I could buy it before the store opened. I then had to set my phone alarm so I wouldn't forget to pay attention to the time. It was so hard having to put it down. 3w

For reading #ReadingTheAmericas2023 for #Dominica I selected this #chunkster. This sweeping saga was a mind blow for me. I was so swept up into the story based on a Dorothy Dolly Kirwan Thomas. Truly a read that everyone should pick up #bookspin @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB @TheAromaofBooks

BarbaraBB Your recommendation is so tempting 💕 3w

Oh boy, was this a beast. I am still struggling a bit with my feelings on this - relief that it is over? I feel the author tried to cover every aspect of India in one book, which, in my opinion, was too ambitious. It often felt like a slog. Whenever I put it down, I didn't know if I would pick it back up. There were some interesting and/or entertaining moments and a huge list of characters, but I don't think I could recommend this one. #chunkster

CBee Have you read The Reading List? This is one of the books on the “list” and I thought, hard pass for me 😂🫢 3w
Morr_Books @CBee lol. You are wise! Now I will be picking up The Reading List. 3w
CBee @Morr_Books it‘s a wonderful read!! 💚 3w

I feel like I read a lot of books in February but my #bookspinbingo board doesn‘t seem to reflect that! Seasparrow was a #chunkster so maybe that‘s why. I got to my #doublespin but not my #bookspin; the latter has just come in from interlibrary loan. No bingo, but I‘m not really expecting to get any this year.
