January 2024 #BookSpinBingo

This was a good reading month with 14 completed books (including 7 #1001books), planned progress on 2 long reads, and 3 bingos! I think Cloud Atlas and Mrs. ‘Arris Goes to Paris were probably my favorites. Since I‘m not doing weekly book reports this year, I also noted my in progress reads at the bottom.

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! Fantastic month!!! 1mo
Vansa I could not love FLowers for Mrs.'Arris more. I actually thought the movie did it quite a disservice with a ridiculous romance subplot with the Marquis, though Lesley Manville is glorious as always 1mo
Daisey @Vansa The book was a delight, but I agree there were a few disappointing things about the movie. 1mo

2023 was an interesting reading year. #Clarissa was the longest book and greatest challenge of the year, and Don Quixote was plenty long as well. I don‘t really do simply favorites, instead also considering the books that I think will be the most memorable. As of this moment, these are those books of 2023 for me.

Readerann I got behind on the Clarissa year-long group read, then couldn‘t catch up (I‘m at 70%). Congrats on finishing! 👏 It‘s SO long. 😩 2mo
Daisey @Readerann So long! I don‘t know that I would have made it if I hadn‘t forced myself to mostly stick to the schedule and participated in some discussion with other readers. It‘s definitely one of the toughest to finish classics I‘ve read. 2mo
merelybookish Impressive dent on 1001 books challenge! 2mo
Daisey @merelybookish Thanks! Yes, this is the most I‘ve managed to finish in a year so far. 2mo

Some graphs of my 2023 reading

All of my 5 star reads were rereads, but there were some great 4 star reads and only a single 1 star read.

LiteraryinLawrence I love seeing everyone‘s charts! 2mo
Daisey @LiteraryinLawrence So do I! Year end charts also make me want to use StoryGraph, but I‘ve tried a couple years in a row and can never keep up with it. 2mo

I completed 45 books from the #1001books list this year for an updated total of 253 out of 1,318!

A few were rereads but from long enough ago that I didn‘t have dates in Goodreads. As usual, there were books I just pushed through to finish as well as fantastic reads.

Several were read for the #Reading1001 group, including 13 for #TBRTakedown. Many others were read with or for various readalong groups and challenges listed in the comments.

2023 #BookSpinBingo
I know this graphic is too small to see the details, but it was fun to go back through each of my bingo boards and see the variety for the year. I read 20 of 24 chosen #BookSpin & #DoubleSpin books. I appreciate the flexibility of this method to track progress on long reads as well as completion. There are 130 completed books represented for the year!

December 2023 #BookSpinBingo

My favorite this month was definitely The Godfather, but there were several good books. I also finished out the year with a bingo.

November was a good reading month. I finished #DraculaDaily, which was a fantastic long read. It was one of 5 #1001books completed this month, along with starting Don Quixote. I also especially enjoyed Sovietistan.

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! Fantastic month!!! I did Dracula Daily last year, but just recently checked out the bound copy from the library - it has all the snarky email headings plus random internet comments in the margins. I'm not sure I need to own it, but it's been pretty fun to page through. 3mo
Daisey @TheAromaofBooks I‘ve been interested in the print copy as well but feel the same about buying it. I‘ll have to check if my library has added it. 3mo
TheAromaofBooks It's kind of expensive, but I have to say that it is really nice quality - an oversized hardcover with glossy pages and such. 3mo

I completed more books than I expected in October, including finally finishing Clarissa! I think my favorite new read this month was Wild Swans, but I also had a few great rereads.

I mostly kept up with readalongs in September and listened to a lot of audio. I finished both my #BookSpin & #DoubleSpin as well as got a bingo! As for favorites in new reads, Legends & Lattes was an incredibly fun and light listen and Coming up Short was a great middle grade read.
