I was intrigued by the premise of this one: What happens when the chosen one fails? It turns out his BFF tries to take up the cause and get the job done. I loved Aaslo the reluctant hero as he tries to amass the allies needed to save the world despite the prophecy proclaiming doom without the chosen one. It did end with a bit of a cliff hanger which wasn't too fun but I think this is still a series I'll continue with.

HeyT This was my #DoubleSpin for January @TheAromaofBooks. 6h
Nelnjali I really enjoyed this book too. The sequel got delayed, but last I heard it is supposed to be coming out in March! 5h

My January #doublespin! I've had this book on my shelf forever, and even though I've seen the movie, I was surprised how much I liked this book. I'll admit that I find the relationship between Michael and Hanna "icky"...yet I couldn't put this book down.

I finished my #DoubleSpin pick this month! I'm not really sure how I feel about this book. It was sort of a coming of age novel about a 36-year-old who should have already grown up. He sees everyone being adults around him, and it seems to make him angry, until he realizes how that could be just as important to him as his record collection and knowledge of music.

Ruthiella I read this in my early read thirties and loved it. Timing might have been key! 😆 6h

My #doublespin is done!!!
This series is interesting I just find the couple so ridiculous and annoying 😂 JLA has a style and I don‘t mind it but after reading so many in a row it begins to gnaw at you! Glad it‘s done! #bookspinbingo

I finished 1 book of of my Jan. TBR list.
I should read The Proposal or Grey as they are my #bookspin and #doublespin books, but The Pinks is my Jan. #LMPBC book, so it will take priority.
I was really hoping for a low key weekend so I could finish more reading, but my parents showed up on Friday night and just left this morning. Now I have grading and lesson plans as well as #BibleBuddyRead to catch up on.

#BookReport #WeeklyForecast combo

All of my finished reads where picks.

It will probably take me most of this week to finish my reread of Salem‘s Lot on audio.
I just started Dangerous Women, my #bookspin , today and it seems to be a fast read. LCR is my #doublespin and is up next. I‘m not sure if I will get another audiobook started before the end of the week.
I‘m going to give The Lacuna a try for #authoramonth .

Cinfhen I liked this one - tons of interesting history 1d
Cinfhen I need to try this one again / did u do audio or print?? 1d
Bookzombie @Cinfhen I like history so I‘m hoping I will like The Lacuna. I did audio for The Five. I had it in print from the library, but never really needed it. 1d
Cinfhen Good to know!, I have audio & print but neither was working for me. Truthfully when I tried to read/ listen it was June 2020 and we were in FULL lockdown. 1d
Bookzombie @Cinfhen I don‘t think I could have listened to it then. The womens‘ lives are fairly bleak. Also, the misogyny made me angry. I would pair this with a lighter read. 1d

Northanger Abby | Jane Austen

This was my first Austen. I enjoyed it and definitely laughed at some parts. Catherine is sweet, honest and innocent, if a bit clueless. Henry is funny and kind and the Thorpes are the worst.

This was my #doublespin for January.

MadelineMcCrae Northanger Abbey is one of my favorite of Jane Austen :) 1d
TheAromaofBooks I love this one!!! 1d
batsy That's a cute cover! 1d
mabell This is one of my favorite Austens too! ❤️ 20h

An epistolary time-traveling spy-vs-spy love story. A fascinating universe and a quick read.
