@TheAromaofBooks Ah! Apparently Torian is the 3rd book I‘m a series, so I guess I have to read them all! 🖤❤️🖤🔥

Considering I worked all weekend, I‘m pretty happy with my #20in4 stats! I will admit to spending a lot of time on book tube and Netflix over the past week, so this isn‘t bad.😅 The only DNF was True Crime Story, and my favourite of the bunch was Mixed Plate. All around, a perfect weekend!
As always, thanks to our wonderful host @Andrew65 ! It was a blast! ❤️💫
Here‘s my #bookspinbingo list for June, with a couple open bonus spots for some mood reading. I‘ve been going pretty hard with the monthly goals and themes this year to hit specific stats and help lower my unread owned TBR, but I think I‘m going to remove the barriers in June and just read WHATEVER I want. 😂
Day three stats for #20in4.
Read Voyeur 3.5💫
Read The Best Kind of Thief 3💫
Read Murder Creek 4💫
38% of True Crime Story
40% of Mixed Plate
After a strong ending in Daisy Darker, I decided to stick with the darker reads (🥸see what I did there-darker/Daisy Darker hah… maybe these night shifts are making my loose my mind a little)
Anyways, I loved all the different editions on this one. #20in4
Almost finished this one. Started off strong, but it slowed down quite a bit for me in the middle.
Today was a slower reading day, thanks to Netflix releasing new seasons for 3 of my favourite shows in one week! 😂
Three comics and one #NetGalley audiobook. 🤍
Oh, May. How you have utterly kicked my ass. 😅
My reading has been productive, but completely all over the place. I never know what I‘m in the mood for, and I‘ve been DNFing books like crazy. Pictured are all the books left from my original TBR, but the only one that I need to read, is the only one not pictured — Daisy Darker.
Goal for #20in4 is to read whatever I want, and actually post some updates this time! 🥸😆😳
Insanity. Why do I feel like this whole year is flying by?
It‘s that time already! I‘ll have a think on my goals and TBR closer to, but I think my main goal will be to actually find some time to POST whatever I read this time around. I‘ve had an absolute shit track record for updating posts lately.🤓😅
I don‘t know if this is a mistake, since I tend to *forget* about the physical books on my TBR, but I‘ve decided to go with all owned books for the #14booksin14weeks challenge. Here‘s hoping I can finally get to these! 😅🤞🏻🖤
With June just around the corner, we figure it‘s time to post the new #ISpyBingo board! There are some super fun ones on here! Can‘t wait to see what everyone finds for “Wild animal found in your region”.
StoryGraph challenge has been updated! https://app.thestorygraph.com/reading_challenges/265c3ab9-c799-4d41-857c-d991e83...
This weeks tentative TBR. ❤️
It‘s taken me a while to sort out what author I‘m going to focus on for this months #backlistreadathon, but after looking through my #SeriesLove spread, I‘ve decided on the SisterhoodSeries by Fern Michaels. Hoping for at least 4 books!
Guess who‘s audiobook hold FINALLY came in! What am I getting myself into. I don‘t have high hopes. 😂
This whole “passing of time” things is really blowing my mind this year. I swear it should only be February, but instead we‘re coming up the the 3rd week of May already. 😳 And with that brings another monthly #BacklistReadathon! From May 15th to 21st, join in by choosing an authors backlist to focus on.
Can‘t wait to see who everyone chooses. 🥳
Oh boy! I told my self I would be ruthless with my DNFs this month, since I often force myself to finish a book if it‘s a quick read or a dryer non-fiction…. But I didn‘t expect my month to start off so rough. Of the 10 books I‘ve started, 3 have been DNFs (including the tagged) and I‘ve been heavily skimming the pictured book. I was SO excited to read Soundings, since I love love love whales, but it‘s so disjointed. 😵💫
Here are my final stats for #20in4! The weekend was busy with overnight shifts at the hospital, but thankfully I was able to audiobook while I worked. 🖤I‘m half way through the tagged book, and should finish it before I head to work.
Although I‘m terrible at daily photo challenges, this list was too good to pass up, so instead I attempted to read books with appropriate titles instead. Here‘s my final results for #temptingtitles
Here‘s my #MayTBR in alphabetical order.

After all the twists and turns in the last domestic thriller, I figured I‘d dig straight into a psychological thriller. With this, I‘ll hit my final monthly goal to read 50 books for #ARCApril. 🖤
Next up for #20in4 will be my CloudLibrary holds. I have 10🙈
Just getting started on this one. Hoping I won‘t fall asleep before it gets to the suspense. 😴🥱
#ARCApril #ThingsInCommon #20in4 @Andrew65
How are we 3 days away from May?! I still have so many goals for 2023 and I feel like I‘m running out of time. 😅
As for #20in4 goals, I‘ll be picking from this stack, and hope to complete a minimum of 8 books. These books all work for various challenges/checklists, including: #mostanticipated2023 #Roll100Netgalley #GRChoiceAwards2022 #ARCApril #TemptingTitles #ThingsInCommon
Following the same layout as my #bookspinbingo and #ISpyBingo layout, I created 23 #AlphabeticalBingo boards in my newest #bulletjournal. I decided to combine Q&V, and X,YZ. Looking at it now, I probably should have just done all 5 letters together since I don‘t have as many V titles as I thought. 😆
Feel free to join me in a new Bingo challenge! #AlphabeticalBingo is pretty straight forward. Since I have an unbelievable amount of unread books that I‘m trying to prioritize, I decided to add an extra challenge to help me plow through them. I‘ve made a bingo board for each letter of the alphabet (combining a few of the harder ones: QVXYZ). Now I just read and check them off as I go. You can either make one letter at a time before moving on OR ⬇️
It‘s giving such “Where The Crawdads Sing” vibes. 💚
Last week I told myself I would go into May with no set goals except for #BookSpinBingo & #ISpyBingo, but now this week I have a list of 13 different goals, and I‘m debating making 8-10 different bingo boards. I‘m starting to think I have an addiction to planned reading and #bingoboards 😂😵💫🤣
What do I do?! 😂😂😂
That‘s a wrap on this months #ISpyBingo! 🌸
Pressing play on my final #ISpyBingo April pick. Time to cross off RABBIT.
A nice even 5000 ratings on #Goodreads 🎉
Decided to get my #BookSpinBingo list together a little earlier this month! The majority of these will match up with the #ISpyBingo prompts. 👀
As of right now, I don‘t think I‘m going into May with any monthly themed goals, but I‘m still tinkering with a few possibilities. 🖤
Here‘s what I currently have left on my list for April‘s TBR, and then after that who knows what I‘ll read. ❤️
Woohoo! I‘ve been doing great with this months #BackListReadathon author choice, James Patterson. Currently reading book 16, which might be my last of his for a while. I do have two move left on my shelves, but they‘re not ones that I‘m super interested in and I‘m getting a little underwhelmed with his writing.
I used to devour his books, but most of these have only been 3 star reads. The few 4 stars were the romance BookShots. @TheAromaofBooks
May is looking good already! 😉
Although I‘ve a busier week than expected, I‘ve stuck with my #ThingInCommon reading. Some matches are definitely more vague than others.😆
It took a few days, but we‘ve finally done the draw for the #EasterOMC giveaway. Congratulations to @PuddleJumper ! Thank you so much for joining us! I hope you had a blast. (Ps. It was totally a different post of yours that technically won, but I had to feature your cute furbabes again)😍
Please message me at email@example.com with your shipping details and I‘ll mail out your little prize. 😎
Okay, I decided to finally tackle some of the James Patterson books from my personal shelf for April‘s #BacklistReadathon. With over 320+ books on his list, I could choose him for months to come. 😅😅
A few years back I binged every James Patterson I could get my hands on and but then I needed a break. I guess it‘s time to get back into it. 🖤
I love his Women‘s Murder Club series, but otherwise I tend to prefer his standalones and BookShots.
Hey guys, things had been a little busy after the #EasterOMC Readathon,but I‘ll be posting the giveaway winner in the next few days! 💙
Thanks again to everyone who joined us!

Same girl. Same. ❤️ #listersgonnalist
1. If it was a thrift store or a used bookstore, I could probably manage spending just the $20, but if we‘re talking Chapters/Indigo Books… I‘d be spending more.
2. I walked into the bookstore telling myself I was just there for one specific book. I wasn‘t going to get distracted. I would just get what I needed. Yeah, right. 😂😂😂
Believe it or not, we have officially hit DAY 100 of 2023! I can‘t believe how fast this year has been flying by, but I thought I should take this as a chance to check in with my annual goals, and decide if i should reevaluate or adjust any of my reading plans.
How are you guys doing? Are you hitting your goals? Reading fantastic books? Choosing new genres? 🖤🎉 #Day100
Titles start with A ➡️ Popular on BookTok ➡️ Reverse Harem ➡️ Skull & Bones ➡️ Glasses ➡️ Cat on the cover ➡️ Finished on the same day ➡️ 6+ word title ➡️ Title starts with H ➡️ Temperature related words

Headphones in, audiobook playing, multiple drinks and simple lunch all ready to go. I have mocha cold brew coffee, water (not shown), and the iced tea + lemonade Monster that @TheAromaofBooks shared the other day. I had to try it!
So far, I‘m really enjoying this book! 🖤
Took this silly boy out for a walk, while listening to my audiobook. 💙
I crashed way too early last night, so I missed out on these babies! It‘s currently 7am, but I‘m counting down the hours until it‘s respectable to be digging into these yummy cupcakes. 😂 #Readingsnack #EasterOMC
There‘s a handful of books that come to mind when I think of books that have hilarious or adorable animals in them, but here‘s one I read recently… featuring a chicken! 🐓🐓🐓
Finally finished this 640 page monster, and man was it a Smutfest! Dark and Dirty, and it‘s getting all the stars! #EasterOMC
Also, here‘s all the snacks we have laid out for this weekend! 😂
Waiting for our sushi dinner to arrive, and then jumping straight into Den of Vipers. 🖤
Oscar Meyer is here to show off my 2nd 4 star read of #EasterOMC! This one was definitely heart wrenching, but in all the best ways. ❤️
Puddles is joining us for the #EasterOMC!
