I completely forgot to update on Monday. I finished Demon Copperhead and David Copperfield, a result in itself #chunksters
Bailed on An intro to English poetry 😴
Still dipping into Holly McNish's delicious anthology and the tagged.
I did get distracted by 2 excellent #Netgalley reads Weyward and The wheel of the year.

All on all, a success. Although the journal still awaits 🙈


Andrew65 That‘s brilliant, well done 👏👏👏🙌🍾🥂🥳🥰 I think we all get distracted at times 🤷‍♂️ 4d

My stats for the #JoyousJanuary #readathon is here. Sorry it‘s late, we‘ve had a gastro bug go right through the house, I‘ve only just finished my bout of it. Fun times🤢 I managed 5 books with a total time of almost 46hrs. I‘m pretty happy with that. Also hit all 3 formats with physical, audio & digital books in the mix. Thanks again to our brilliant leader for the motivation🙌. Great start to the year💥

Andrew65 You never need to apologise, just post them whenever you are able. Sorry to hear you have all been ill again, hope you are feeling better now.
5 books and almost 46 hours is brilliant. Well done and thanks for playing along 👏👏👏🙌🥰🍾🥂🥳

What a fantastic follow up to the first book! I loved the first one and was not disappointed by its sequel.

This book picks up where the first one left off and is full of nonstop action and adventure. It is just as faced paced as the previous book.

A bit late with my #JoyousJanuary wrap up

My goals were:

• Finish Kintu ✔️
• Start Blood of Elves ✔️

I just managed to squeeze in starting blood of elves but I did get a couple of chapters in ☺️
I struggled to read much during the week this time (busy with course work outside of actual work) so hopefully have more time for febs readathon!

As always, thanks for hosting @Andrew65

I didn't quite make my goal of finishing 3 books for the #JoyousJanuary #readathon hosted by @Andrew65, as I spent the final day cooking and celebrating Lunar New Year instead of reading.

The photos show what my husband and I made, along with contributions from friends and family members. If you want recipes, I highly recommend the ones at madewithlau.com.

Wishing everyone happiness and good health in the Year of the Rabbit!

Final figures for my #JoyousJanuary Readathon.

✅10/10 Books Finished - 7 pages away from finishing 11 books (The Godmothers)

3500 / 3600 Pages Read

✅ 9/7 #SeriesLove2023 books finished @TheSpineView

Missed my pages count by 100 pages but still happy with an average of 388.9 pages per day. Surprised at one point that I even got that close.

Thanks everyone who played along, I hope you all had great fun and see you on Saturday 4th Feb. 😍🥳

#JoyousJanuary round-up! I am all caught up with my reading for my busy January. I decided to give up Peach Blossom Spring for this month because I am on the verge of being #overbooked and think I‘d rather read it later, not rush.

This week: Love Medicine, The Once & Future Witches, & Middlemarch

Andrew65 That‘s brilliant, well done and thanks for playing along 👏👏👏🙌🥳🍾🥂😍 6d
