I recently redid my reading nook so I thought I‘d share a #shelfie today. I‘m definitely in the to many books not enough space category….

Reading this one in small chunks each week for book club and managed to get myself up to date. 140 pages.

I‘m also reading Anne of the Island along side this and I‘ve managed to get 150 pages into it.

Both books are just ok for the moment but hopefully they get better as I keep going.

It‘s laundry day over here so let‘s see how far I can get in this one.

So far Anne of the Island is better than the first two in the series.

These were the last books I hauled before 2022 on here and this check in didn‘t do so well…. I‘ve read one of these but the Patricia Briggs ones are part of a series and I‘m not up to them just yet but hopefully I can get to them soon.

Taking a look back at my first hauls posted about 4 years ago and seeing if I actually read what I buy.

One is picture is from my trip to Alcatraz and the other is from a Black Friday bookstore trip. And it turns out I do actually read the books I buy.

The Temeraire Series took the longest as I just picked it up this year and is technically still a current read because I‘ve only read the first book in this bind up.

Playing catch up with my #bookspindoublespin picks….

This was February‘s #bookspin pick and I really thought I‘d like it more than I did.

While this pick was just ok it did get me more intrigued to pick up The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! My favorite Arthurian books (although they are rather YA than adult in writing tone) is the series by Gerald Morris that starts with the tagged book - they are snarky and fun and still cover many of the traditional legends. Super fun!! 4w
BacklistReader @TheAromaofBooks oh that sounds good I‘ll have to check it out. 4w

Such a huge punch delivered by such a small book. Highly recommend you read this one if you haven‘t.

This was my #doublespin pick for January. I also used it for my Legacy prompt for Orilium: Gear Up.

I‘m at least intrigued enough to continue but it wasn‘t the best book I‘ve read recently.

Hamnet | Maggie O'Farrell

I read this one with my family for our book club and personally enjoyed it a lot.

I would say if you want the history stuff you‘re better to go to a different book but if you want a good story this will hit the spot.

One thing we talked about was that it doesn‘t feel like Hamnet‘s story but rather that if his grieving mother.

My partner had some time off work so we got back into the Anita Blake series by Laurell K Hamilton. This is book 4 and I believe the book I stop at the last time I picked the series up.

I really enjoyed this one and am excited to continue.

What did you think of when you read this one if you have?

BehindthePages The series is great till some of her later abilities develop. Couldn't keep going and DNFed Affliction. 3mo
BacklistReader @BehindthePages I have definitely heard the series goes down hill. I own all the books through Affliction so we‘re planning to at least get that far. 3mo

Been gone a while…. It was accidental at first and then my mental health took a really bad turn for a very long time. I‘m working on it and hopefully getting back to posting regularly will help at least a little bit.

I thought I‘d return with the books I acquired while I was away. I‘m really excited to get to them all but I always find it hard to pick which to start with….

Which one would you start with?

This was a great one to pick up. We read this for my family book club and we all learned a ton. Definitely recommend this one.

Nonfiction that doesn‘t read like a text book is always a plus for me.

Voyage of the Frostheart | Jamie Littler

For Advent I attempted to read some Christmas and wintery books but these were the only ones I finished. My goal was a book every 2-3 days but I ended up with lots of work stress that required a nap instead of read time every day after I got home…..

Frostheart was definitely my favorite read and The Christmas Pig was really cute.
