Aurora Rising | Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff

Pickpick

I finished this book yesterday. It‘s definitely full of aliens, space travel, powers and conflicts! Start of another great series by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman. My local library has the 2nd book on the shelf so I am going to check it out just to see what it looks like. #21 #BookSpin #21 #AlmostAChunkster (473 pages) #BFC22 #SERIES2022 #Buzzwordathon #MarvellousMarch #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Dahlia #Galaxyathon

These Broken Stars: A Starbound Novel | Amie Kaufman, Meagan Spooner
post image
Pickpick

This is by one of my favorite authors: Amie Kaufman. I could definitely identify her writing style. The story only involves two human characters, but their adventures were still exciting and I was there with them the whole time. #16 #BookSpin #24 #BFC22 #KicktheSlump #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Skydiver

Allylu @wanderinglynn You have a TBR bookcase? Oh my. Is it very big? 5mo
wanderinglynn I started the year at just under 220 TBR books. So far, I‘ve read 12 😆 I wrote about it on my blog: https://wanderinglynn.com/2022/01/13/update-on-100-books-in-2022/ 5mo
Allylu Wow! That's a great blog post. It is so easy to underestimate our TBRs. My husband once told me that I had at least 40 books on top of my armoire and I said, “No way.“ Ummm...I had at least 50! That's not counting my little bookcases and the other bookshelves around the house. I think I need to go through and record my physical books again. Well, maybe not. We just have to keep trying and encouraging each other, right? You are great at that! 5mo

Finished Now We Are Six by A. A. Milne. What a wonderful collection of poems to read in the morning! It brought thoughts of my granddaughter who is nearly two. I enjoyed it very much. #17 #BookSpin #13 #BFC22 #ChildrensClassicRead2022 #Buzzwordathon #ReadYourShelf #Pantone2022ColourChallenge

This is the second book in The Seven Sisters series by Lucinda Riley. It follows Ali as she deals with her father‘s death and other things which lead her to find out about her true heritage. It was a very touching story and I loved it. On to the next! #12 #BookSpin #3 #AlmostAChunksterChallenge #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #BOOKED2022 #SERIES2022 #READYOURSHELF #FabulousFebruary #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Glacier Lake #WintersRespite #TheRoyalReadathon

Just finished Bookish and the Beast! It was cute. Loved Rosie. She‘s so spunky and real. Setting this fairytale in a contemporary place & time is refreshing. #10 (9 were audiobooks - I have to read more print books!) #BookSpin #4 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #SERIES2022 (finished this one) #Buzzwordathon July #READYOURSHELFCHALLENGE June #Pantone2022ColourChallenge CoralRose #WintersRespite #TheRoyalReadathon Thomas O‘Malley

Ramona and Her Father | Beverly Cleary
post image
Pickpick

Just finished listening to Stockard Channing narrate Ramona and Her Father. She does a great job telling the story. Reading this made me wonder at the end if the children in our church‘s Christmas Pageant felt the way Ramona felt about it. I hope they did! #8 #BookSpinBingo #3 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #JUMPSTART2022 #SERIES2022 #20in4 #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Popcorn #Wintercosy

I thought the story was very good. Puri inherited a cacao plantation from her father and an attempt was made on her life en route to Ecuador, then her husband was killed. To find the killer, Puri posed as her husband and told her siblings she died at sea. The results were interesting. #6 #BookSpinBingo #11 #BFC2022 #JUMPSTART2022 #ReadtheSpanishSpeakingWorld Ecuador #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Basil #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #Wintercosy

The Fairest Beauty | Melanie Dickerson
post image
Pickpick

I have 2 books I have chosen for the Snow White retelling: The Fairest Beauty by Melanie Dickerson and The Sleeper and The Spindle by Neil Gaiman. Just finished listening to the tagged book. It was retold from an interesting perspective. It was very faith-infused which I appreciated but I know not all would, which is why I mention it. #3 #BookSpinBingo #23 #BFC22 #JUMPSTART2022 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Poinciana #Wintercosy

The Song of the Lark | Willa Cather
post image

This is an American classic, written by an American author, but is the story of a girl of Swedish descent. She has a gift for music and works hard all her life on mastering her piano playing and later singing. She is rewarded for her efforts with success. She never forgets her beginnings though and her family back home. #2 #BS 8 #BookSpinBingo #BFC22 #JUMPSTART2022 #AClassicAMonth #LiterALLyBOOKish #Pantone2022ColourChallenge #Wintercosy

The Land | Mildred D. Taylor

Pickpick

This is the first of Mildred D. Taylor‘s Logan Family series. I read Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry last year and I was so affected not only by the story, but by Ms. Taylor‘s words about it, that I decided to read the rest of the series. These stories have to be read, especially by folks like me. #BookspinBingo #1 #BFC22 #JUMPSTART #SERIES2022 #LiterALLyBOOKish #Pantone2022ColourChallenge #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #Wintercosy
