I wanted to participate in Dewey's 24-hour readathon, but I did a clinic today and was exhausted afterwards. I have Monday off though, so I'm still hoping to do a belated sorta-readathon. #weekendreads @rachelsbrittain

During the #reversereadathon I managed to read the last 221 pages of Thank You for Listening, the first 80 pages of For Butter or Worse, and just a bit of my eARC of Forget Me Not. It definitely helped give me a reading boost! @DeweysReadathon

My tbr for the #reversereadathon that starts tonight and goes until 8pm EST tomorrow! (or, for me, until I go see the Barbie movie at 7!) My tbr seems to be all romance, and is also made up of a bunch of books I've started and would like to actually finish. @DeweysReadathon

Pickpick

Finished my first 5⭐️ read of 2022! I loved this author's first book (Winter's Orbit) but this one was even better. Really fascinating, twisty scifi with excellently developed main characters. I love a messy, prickly protagonist, and Ocean's Echo definitely has that. I'll read whatever this author comes out with.

Pickpick

Finished my first book for #joyousjanuary - this one is a soft pick for me, maybe 3.5⭐️. The romance was cute, but the second half of the book had some very weird plot choices. I enjoyed the first book in this series, Delilah Green Doesn't Care, a lot more.
