I just realised I haven‘t posted my May #Bookspin #Doublespin & #BookspinBingo list yet! I‘m really hoping to read at least one of these, though more would be better. My Reading Mojo had best be back quick smartish or I‘m gonna lose my mind real soon.😵‍💫

Cinfhen What‘s going on???? You‘ve been quiet or I‘ve just been missing your posts!! 1d
Lizpixie @Cinfhen hi lovely👋I‘ve been quiet for the last month or so, still struggling with memory & concentration issues due to post Covid syndrome. It‘s taken away my reading Cindy! Pisses me off that my only way to de-stress & relax is gone. Praying it‘s only temporary🙏 1d
BarbaraBB Wishing you that much needed recovery ❤️‍🩹 1d
Cinfhen Oh no, that‘s terrible. Sending you loads of good vibes and best wishes for a quick & complete recovery 💕💕💕 1d
TheAromaofBooks Never too late to BookSpin!! Hope you are feeling better soon. It's amazing how long recovery can take sometimes and it's hard to be patient!!! 19h

My first check-in for the #MarvellousMay #readathon & I‘m doing much better than expected! I got about halfway through The Murder Rule before a combo of headache,eye strain & fatigue forced me to stop, so I pulled out my now “vintage” iPod & started the tagged book, which is a total comfort reread. Fingers crossed I‘ll finish both by tomorrow🤞How are you guys doing?

Andrew65 A brilliant start 👏👏👏 I finished one book yesterday and read 286 pages. 23h

The Murder Rule | Dervla McTiernan

It‘s past midnight here in Sydney so I‘m kicking off my #MarvellousMay #readathon now with my brand new(and signed)copy of the tagged book. Unlike her previous novels which were set in her native Ireland(expat now here in Oz), this one is set in the US, Charlottesville Virginia to be precise. Hannah volunteers for a semester at the Innocence Project, working on a death row case. But instead of exonerating him, she‘s trying to convict him.

Andrew65 And we‘re off! 3d
CarolynM How are you feeling, Liz? Hope reading is coming easily again 😘 2d

Hi everyone👋I‘m gonna once again attempt to actually finish a book during a readathon. Went to the docs today & officially have post-covid syndrome, so no guarantees on completing goals, but I‘m gonna give it a red hot go! My goals are:
📚Read a damn book!😠
⏱Read for more than 15minutes🙄
🫥Get my reading mojo back before my mind packs it in. Please?🙏
Good luck everyone!
#MarvellousMay #readathon

Bookwormjillk Oh no! Good luck 🍀 3d
Andrew65 Best of luck with the Readathon, and sorry to hear about the post COvID situation, still dealing with similar things myself. 3d
Lizpixie @Andrew65 Thanks lovely. It‘s bloody awful isn‘t it? I‘m really struggling with memory & concentration problems on top of the pain & fatigue. Not sure which is worse honestly. My 32yr old daughter has had covid 3 times & just had a minor heart attack due to Myocarditis due to this horrible disease plus they found a bleed in her brain. It‘s the gift that keeps on giving. Hope you & your wife start feeling better soon🤞 3d

My first #BookMail of 2022 came today!🙌The first 6 books from my birthday order are here, I‘m really hoping they‘ll kickstart my reading brain again🤞I‘m probably starting with Gallant by V.E.Schwab or maybe the tagged book which is the latest in her Caleb Zelic series, about a deaf PI working in Melbourne. It‘s hard to choose honestly. Which would you pick?🤷🏻‍♀️

I finally broke my #bookbuyban for 2022, it‘s been an awful year already so far, my birthday was a bust with us being sick, so I thought bugger it. 12 books later…They range from Crime to SciFi to Fantasy & Historical. With 3 signed copies! The hubby is going to South Australia for almost two weeks to see his 93yr old Nanna so it‘s a perfect time to tempt my reading brain with some new reads. Fingers crossed it gets it moving again🤞🤞🤞

Still struggling with memory & concentration problems from long covid, amongst other symptoms but the those two are REALLY affecting my reading & so to me are the worst of the bunch! Doesn‘t help to have a 13 week old boxer dog who thinks she‘s a baby & likes to sleep on my shoulder. And snores. How‘s everyone else doing? I‘ve missed you guys!

Bk3 of April & #AwesomeApril #readathon was done yesterday. Another combo of audio & print reread, Bk2 of WOT is more of a quest story even compared to the 1st. It‘s all about the hunt for the Horn Of Valere & the Ruby dagger from Shadar Logoth to heal Mat from its taint. Another winner in my book👍 #bookspinbingo #seriesread2022

Bk2 of April & #AwesomeApril #Readathon was done Wednesday. Another reread, this was a mix of both audio & print book. One of my fave comfort reads when I‘m not feeling great, the world building, characters & story is fantastic(and much better than the tv series!!)Yes there could‘ve been better female characterisation & has no lgbtq rep but it was written over 30yrs ago. Still recommend #bookspinbingo #seriesread2022

Bk1 of April & #AwesomeApril #readathon was done on Monday.I‘ve found myself still struggling with my concentration & memory post covid and was having a lot of problems with reading a new book. So I tried a reread by audio which while not a cause for celebration, at least has me reading something! I so hope this gets better soon🙇🏻‍♀️ I love this outing in the Virgin River series, mostly for the gardening🍓🫐🥕🫑 #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022

📚 Read a book!
⏱ Read for at least 24hrs
📉 Start to bring my reading tally back up again🤞

I‘m starting with the tagged book, which was a birthday gift from the always lovely @CarolynM & which is my #Doublespin book for April. Wish me luck🍀

Finally have a chance to post my #Bookspin #Doublespin & #BookspinBingo list for April! I swear, I haven‘t even looked at a book for over a week, I‘d forgotten how much work a puppy can be🐶Add in my poor grandson who‘s so miserable with a cold he‘s inconsolable. But he‘s getting better finally thank god, though Ruby is proving harder to train🤷🏻‍♀️

tpixie I don‘t know if you believe in crating. Where we got our puppy they said keep it in the crate no more than every 2 to 3 hours and potty it. if it‘s out of the crate you need to potty pup 🐶 every 30 minutes. They said keep the puppy isolated to one room only until they‘ve mastered pottying outside in that room, and then you can expand their space. That‘s what I remember at least! (edited) 1mo
TheAromaofBooks Puppies are soooo much work!! That's why they have to be extra cute 😂 Hope your grandson feels better soon. It's so hard to see a little one be sick 💔 1mo

Been away trying to deal with the circus here,a new puppy plus a stressed daughter & sick 6month old grandson staying in my small house coz her partner has covid. I haven‘t picked up a book in a week!😱Plus I‘m still recovering myself.

Say hello to Ruby Tuesday, my birthday present from the hubby. Isn‘t she adorable? I really really wanted a corgi but the prices for puppies were just ridiculous, over $7,000aud so we went for a boxer instead. Didn‘t hurt that she looks like a mini version of Twitch, our bull mastiff dog we lost to heart problems two years ago. We‘re having a bit of an adjustment period so far, but she should settle in soon.🤞 #dogsoflitsy

Only just saw this for March #20in4 #readathon so I‘ll follow along with our EST Littens time. It‘s just turned Saturday here in Sydney so I‘ve lost a whole day otherwise. My goals are:

📚Read a book!(post covid has been hard on my concentration)
⏱Read for the 20hrs
🎧Read different formats🤞

My reading has taken a big hit after covid, just can‘t seem to follow along with a story, my mind drifts. Has any other litten experienced this post covid?

PageShifter I think it's common if you have been sick. At least for me it always takes some time to get back to my rutines after sickness. 2mo

I survived coronavirus! And managed to finish this amazing High Fantasy trilogy on audiobook. Bks 5,6&7 of March were just as fabulous 30yrs ago. A companion trilogy to the Riftwar Saga by Feist, these are set on Kelewan, the feudal Japan like world of the race that invaded Midkemia. Mara is a 17yr old girl about to take holy orders when she learns of her father & brothers death in the war & becomes Ruling Lady of the Acoma. Political & violent.

I have been dying to read both the tagged book and Light From Uncommon Stars, I needed another bullet journal and the pens, both of which will be getting used regularly, the sticky notes are adorable & the bookmarks have already had my daughter sniffing around. Then the huge booksleeve! I love everything❤️❤️❤️❤️

1. Wow, probably Dame Agatha honestly with a few crime writers who have written absurdly long detective series like Elizabeth George & Peter Robinson.
2. Right now, my library chair. But I wish I had a seaside or mountain cottage with a fireplace & big windows!
3. Oh yeah. As many as I possibly can🙌

#WondrousWednesday

truthinfiction I have read around 52 books by Dame Christie. 🙈 Her books make up basically 1/4th of the entire number of books I have read. I feel you on your wish to own a cottage in mountains. Let's keep hoping. 💗 3mo

Bk9 of February was finished today. The 4th in Throne Of Glass, there‘s a lot more action, heartbreak & a few new characters introduced. Moving between Aelin/Rowan, Dorian, Chaol & Manon, alliances shift & form & a battle is fought but not the war. One of my favourites in the series. #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #PennyPerPage #ChunksterChallenge #Pageathon #FinishingTheSeries #KickTheSlump

Bk8 of February was done yesterday! Haven‘t had a chance till now to post, my grandsons staying atm. The 3rd in the Throne Of Glass series was a chunkster, with a lot of action, new monsters & a few new characters. The first appearance of Rowan & the Fae, it builds up the surrounding forces that Celeana/Aelin has to contend with before moving back to Rifthold. #BookspinBingo #PennyPerPage #SeriesRead2022 #ChunksterChallenge #FinishingTheSeries

Bk7 of February & Bk3 & last of #FabulousFebruary #readathon is done. Well, it‘s really been a #FebruaryMaas readathon for me! The 2nd in the Throne Of Glass series was darker than the first, with a lot more blood, death & evil. Onto the next! #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #PennyPerPage #Pageathon #FinishingTheSeries #52BookClubRC2022

Bk6 of February & Bk2 of #FabulousFebruary #readathon is done! After the ending of AHOSAB I figured I‘d do a huge reread of all her books(spoilers!) For a YA fantasy it has some heavy themes going, don‘t let the fact most of the MCs are under 21 deter you, this is a pretty epic fantasy in my book🤴🏻🥷🏻🧝🏼‍♀️ #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #PennyPerPage #Pop22 #FinishingTheSeries #52BookClubRC2022 #Pageathon #BooklistQueenRC

Bk5 of February & Bk1 of #FabulousFebruary #readathon is done! All 805pgs of it. I‘ve been eagerly waiting for this and it definitely didn‘t disappoint. Maas is my guilty pleasure, her books may be a little silly sometimes but I love em. And that ending! The only problem is now I have to wait another year for Bk3!😩 #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #PennyPerPage #Booked2022 #RealOrFictionalRoyal #Pop22 #ChunksterChallenge #PantoneChallenge2022

I‘m baaack! Had to have a week away from the internet for mental health reasons, plus a slump which left me unable to settle on a book so I‘ve spent it watching 6 seasons so far of Blue Bloods(love Tom Sellecks moustache!)Until this thing of beauty arrived in the mail today. Already 250pages in and loving it so far. Fingers crossed it lives up to Bk1🌟🌙🕊

So, this is the stack I‘m accumulating of books I‘ve read a few chapters of and just no. In the last day. So far I‘ve tried 80s British crime thriller, myth retelling, another crime(reread)& magical realism🤦🏻‍♀️I‘m giving Nordic thriller a go next then I have no idea? Non fiction? Scifi? Fantasy? Help me please!!!!🙏

In my sanctuary on this sunny afternoon, hiding from the heat outside with my ducted aircon(the best thing I‘ve ever gotten beside the hubby that put it in!). Finally starting the tagged book after it‘s been sitting on my shelf for almost 3 years. I loved The Night Circus sooo much, I‘m terrified this just won‘t live up to the awesomeness that was so have been avoiding it. But it‘s time to pull on my big girl pants and start👖

Lizpixie P.S. Neville is proud of me🪴 3mo
mollyrotondo I loved this one so I hope you enjoy!! 3mo
Sapphire I had the same fears. It‘s different enough. While I didn‘t have the same experience with it as Night Circus, I loved it in its own way. I will say the moods and impressions have stayed with me over time even more than Night Circus. 3mo

Sapphire Love your reading nook too! 3mo
TheAromaofBooks I didn't love Starless Sea as much as Night Circus, although it does have some absolutely magical writing. But it's a book I felt like I needed to read twice to really “get“ it. Although that could just be me being slow and not poetical 😂 3mo
wanderinglynn What a great space! 😍 3mo
maich So beautiful space😍😍 It is yours? 3mo
MaureenMc I felt the same way! Starless is quite different from Circus, but I loved them both. I feel like I‘m in some sort of magical cocoon when reading Morgenstern. 😊 3mo
Lizpixie @mollyrotondo @Sapphire @TheAromaofBooks @MaureenMc unfortunately I just couldn‘t get into it today, though the writing is beautiful I think I‘ll need to be in the right mood for it. Maybe another day soon🤞 @Sapphire @wanderinglynn @maich thank you! I love it too. Yep it‘s all mine😁 Always told my boys as soon as they moved out, their bedroom would be my library. Took the hubby a year after the youngest left but it was worth the wait💛💚💛 3mo
TheAromaofBooks I actually started Starless Sea more than once before the time was “right“ so I get it!! 3mo

Bk3 of February 2022 is done! Another reread, I‘ve been bouncing around everywhere with books this year, I think I‘ve read one from nearly every genre on my shelf with new reads & rereads both. With this I thought I‘d freshen my memory before the 2nd comes out in a few days🙌Loved it just as much as the first read, I have a huge weakness for Maas‘ books, don‘t know why. Maybe it‘s the hot guys with wings?🕊 #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022👇

Redy2trvl I‘m so excited for the second book!!!! 3mo
TheSpineView I need to read this one! On my list since it was published. 3mo
BookBelle84 I'm struggling through this one at the moment. It always takes me a bit to get into her books and then I love them. 3mo

Oh my, which covers should I choose? There‘s the Seasons Editions of classics, the Bloomsbury Modern Classics, the special edition Pratchetts or SOIAF special editions, the Harry Potter books, the Penguin Galaxy series or the Daughter Of Smoke & Bone series, I could go on. And on. Yes I know, I‘m a total cover whore! I‘m totally drawn to a beautiful cover. But if a book is good, I‘ll read it no matter what it looks like though!

Bk2 of February 2022 is done! The 3rd Rizzoli book is one of my favourites in the series. It introduces Father Brophy & both Maura & Jane are given more depth. A bitterly cold Xmas in Boston & a young nun is found bludgeoned to death in the Abbeys chapel, another nun barely hanging onto life. When Maura finds the dead nun had recently given birth, complications arise. Love this one. #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #Pop22 #Pageathon #PennyPerPage👇

Bk1 of February is done. A reread of a book which is technically the 2nd Rizzoli & Isles novel but really is the first book with both Jane AND Maura involved. I loved it just as much this time around. Rizzoli is battered but unbent after her encounter with The Surgeon when a bee series of murders start. Then the unthinkable happens, Hoyt escapes from jail & joins forces with the new killer. Recommend👍 #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #Pop22👇

Really enjoying my reread of the first Rizzoli & Isles thriller. Keep trying to talk @Ciara_Rosey into reading them as she‘s obsessed with the tv show! Don‘t know if she‘ll like it but, the book Jane & Maura are very different to the tv ones.
