To Sleep in a Sea of Stars | Christopher Paolini

Bk6 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done. It‘s also the 2nd for #JoyousJanuary #readathon & my #Bookspin for January. Yay! Finally finished another book, my stats for Jan are awful so far. Though most were over 500pgs. I loved this the 1st time I read it & this time was no different. Very different from what he‘s famous for, both the plot & characters were well thought out & wonderful to read. Highly recommend. #BookspinBingo #LitsyAToZ2022👇

Clwojick Way to go girl! 3d

ElizaMarie @Avanders I loved it so much, I have already bought copies for a couple of my friends because I wanted them to read it too! I am in the process of trying to bully my husband into reading my copy. 3d

Bk5 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done. Wow. I blew through this in a day, I guess the day off was productive after all! I absolutely loved this 2nd book. Even though the MCs were different, it had a few side characters in common & the world it‘s in. Set in the HUGE Core General Hospital, it‘s about a rescue specialist doctor who has to save the entire hospital habitat from an insane computer virus. Fantastic! #BookspinBingo #Pop22👇

Bk4 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done. Finally! Haven‘t had time to read with the cleaning but I got there in the end.Fantastic space opera,the start of a new series it‘s full of beautiful imagery & space facts. There‘s a section that talks about the SuperMassiveBlackHole at the centre of the Milky Way that was brilliant. The characters & the story were both well written & interesting. Highly recommend. #BookspinBingo #Pop22 #ReadHarder22👇

The Apollo Murders | Colonel Chris Hadfield

Bk3 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done! I first started this before Xmas but wasn‘t in the mood for it, picked it back up last night & flew through it today. A Cold War spy thriller set in the Apollo missions, it‘s written by real astronaut & Canadian nice guy Colonel Hadfield who has the experience to add the details that make it believable.🚀I highly recommend⭐️ #Booked2022 #InvolvesAnExploration #Pop22 #BookspinBingo #SpaceTimeReads👇

Bk2 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done. I was having trouble settling on a next read so decided to reread the last in the All Souls trilogy in prep for the new season of the TV series on Saturday. I love this cover so much, these editions are gorgeous with a main location on the spine & front of each book(Oxford,Elizabethan London & Venice I believe)While it was a bit disjointed, I still enjoyed the wrap up of the story arc. #BookspinBingo👇

I couldn‘t get a very good picture but I did get a bingo in December—diagonal from the bottom left! And $16.55 for #pennyperpage. That was a fun experiment—I think I‘ll make sure to budget myself a minimum amount for books each month so that I know I‘ll be able to buy books when I want them.

In an effort to not overbuy books, I started tracking my reading vs spending doing #pennyperpage sorta thing. Thank you to the library, friend book swaps, and deals mentioned here in Litsy to keep me in the black!

Bk1 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done! And it‘s Bk3 of #NewYearSpecial #20in4 #readathon. Plus I got a ton of #audiojournaling RC for this year & this crossed off a few prompts already🙌I freaking loved this book! I highly recommend the audiobook, read by Dave as he‘s so funny & personable, it‘s like having a story told by a mate over a few beers. Awesome man, awesome writer.❤️ #NonFictionBingo2022 #Roll100 #Pop22 #AudiobookChallenge2022👇

Nute Happy New Year, Alissa!💜🥳💜I keep forgetting that I want to employ the Penny Per Page tactic for purchasing new books. Look how wonderful you did…$194.87 for the year. Wow! That‘s great!🤗 3w
Read-y_Picker @Nute Happy new year! It ended up being pretty simple to keep track of. Just added a column to my over all tracker. And I swear it deterred me from spending. I think I only bought during swap season. Give it a try and good luck! 3w
