#BookReport #WeeklyForecast combo late edition

I didn‘t finish anything after my November wrap-up. I have one novella left in Duke and I‘m chugging along in Shadow. I must have tried to get to Hark! last year as I had already read the first two stories. Widows is my last book for #Booked2021 and I feel resistant, lol. I just started Portrait on audio.

Cinfhen Oh no 🙈 why isn‘t this book working for you?? It‘s an upcoming IRL bookclub book so I‘m curious 1d
Bookzombie @Cinfhen I started it on audio and the story hasn‘t clicked yet. I‘m not very far at all though. I‘m going to move to print for a bit. I think it‘s just me being resistant to finishing that final book. 😀 1d
Cinfhen I‘ll be watching out for your thoughts 🤓hope it picks up in print 🤞🏼I‘m already a little nervous about this one. I don‘t love historical mysteries 23h

A day late on this since my iPad wouldn‘t work in Mexico for some reason. I‘m cranking right along on pre-reading the gifts although I still have a bunch to tackle. @Cinfhen #bookreport #weeklyforecast

Bookzombie How was the Whitechapel book? I‘m intrigued. 🙂 1d
Cinfhen Yay, a very slim graphic 😉Mexico sounds fabulous- hope you enjoyed 🤩 1d
BookNAround @Bookzombie I liked it quite a bit and I think my daughter will too. I‘ve never read Conan Doyle so can‘t say how it measures up to the Sherlock tradition though. 21h

#Weeklyforecast and #bookreport
Got a stack of kids Christmas books read yesterday before the football game. Gonna finish Gray Man this week and delve into Bone Dust White.
I do have three kid's chapter books that are Christmasy that I may get read before my library run on Thursday. We'll see.
Also, with the picture books, I met my reading goal of 25 books for the year. Yay!

Combo #WinterGames points post and #BookReport -

13,613 points for week one, mainly because of this crazy word search! The tagged book netted me 723 words just on its own!!

I read the pictured books, plus The Christmas Escape, which I already returned to the library. I think that one was actually my favorite for the week - a nice balance between Christmas fluff and some real issues, while still staying festive and fun. Five books in five days⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) puts me ahead of my page goal for the month and has brought me back up to only four books behind on my GR goal for the year, so I'm feeling really good about catching that up before December 31. I did DNF two books that were on my #BookSpinBingo board - A Season for Second Chances just didn't jive with me (despite enjoying The Twelve Dates of Christmas so much last year that I'm rereading it this year), & The Christmas Room was just... ⬇ 2d
OriginalCyn620 Awesome! 2d
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) not Christmasy?? I was over a hundred pages in and still no sign of Christmas and I honestly didn't really like anyone. Seriously, when the dude meets the chick for the first time (not a first date, their first time EVER TALKING) he asks her if she's still a virgin!? The whole book just had this weird vibe that wasn't for me, so I gave up a little over a hundred pages in & sent it off to a new home via Paperback Swap.

I'm not sure ⬇
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) I will have as much reading time this next week (I was home all of last week after a Covid contact... all is well), but am so enjoying my month of mostly lighthearted reads, plus seeing what all everyone else is into.

I'm not posting an official #WeeklyForecast this month... I have my list of potential reads for the month & am letting the random number generator decide which one comes next!!

@Clwojick @Cinfhen
Cinfhen That‘s good 👍🏽 letting the fates dictate your reads 😛Sorry two of your books were duds 😖 2d

Managed to finish one of the ones that I've been lingering on. It was very nostalgic because the movie used to be a slumber party staple when I was growing up.

My goal is to finish last months Book and Double spin before heading into more of my backlog.

Made this this morning but forgot to post. #BookReport - Finished 6 books this week. At the point where I‘m reading a bunch of quick books for the most part.

#CurrentlyReading - about 100 pages into Orquidea Divina, about 50% into Twelve dates and only about 10% into The Last Graduate

Since I have a bunch currently going, I only have one other book on my #WeeklyForecast

Cinfhen You‘re on a roll 🎲🎲🎲🎲🎲 2d
mcctrish I just grabbed Twelve Days from the library. I agree that quick and easy reads are perfect for December 2d
