Woohoo!!! Last #BookSpinBingo board of the year!

I did have to swap out Dreams Made Flesh for The Invisible Ring because this one actually comes first in the series. 😅 Oopsies!

As usual, I‘ve marked my #BookSpin and #DoubleSpin so I don‘t forget which ones they are. My goal is to read those and the four holiday themed books on here, so wish me luck! 🎄☃️❤️

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! Looks great!!! 2d
Pigpen_Reads That looks so pretty. How did you make that? 2d
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @Pigpen_Reads I use a free editing app called Canva. It‘s fantastic! There‘s also a premium version, but I‘m able to create all my bingo boards just using their free stuff. It‘s pretty intuitive, but if you download it and need any help/pointers, I‘d be happy to give advice. 👍 2d
Pigpen_Reads @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Thank you so much!! You're so awesome to offer help 🙂 2d
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @Pigpen_Reads You‘re very welcome! 👍❤️ I hope you have fun with it. I use it to make almost every post for Litsy. 😅 2d

That‘s all folks! My November #BookSpinBingo board is more filled up than I thought it‘d be at the beginning of the month. I‘m now only two books away from my 2021 goal!
🤘😆🤘
Going to start in on some holiday reads cause I am totally chomping at the bit for Christmas this year! 🎄🎅🏻☃️

Doctor Sleep: A Novel | Stephen King

5 ⭐️s
This was a really great sequel to The Shining, definitely lived up to my expectations. Seeing little Danny grow into a man with his own baggage was raw and real. I loved all the characters, even down to the side characters that take Dan under their wings when he hits rock bottom and is struggling to find the right way up again. The True Knot were evil, but their family-like unit felt realistic and made them more horrific.

Didn‘t get much reading in this weekend despite having six total hours on the road. On Friday I had to be at work two hours earlier in the morning so I napped most of the way to my in-laws. Then today on our way home, the hubby and I vented to each other about them. 😅

Very happy to be home and away from their psycho negativity. I was also super happy to be able to get all my holiday decor up, especially the tree and my brand new countdown. 😍🎄

AmyG How pretty! Sorry about the in-laws. Been there, done that. I so get it. (edited) 6d

1. Not for Thanksgiving itself, but I do have a three hour car ride on Friday that I‘ll be able to get plenty of reading packed into.
2. Oh my…so many! 🤤 I love my homemade cranberry sauce, my aunt‘s deviled eggs, my dad‘s stuffing, and my brother‘s green bean casserole. My grandma used to make the best noodles, but she kept the recipe in her head and my mom and aunts never learned it before she passed.

Part 2 of 2
The second half of my #Roll100 list for @PuddleJumper
It‘s all over the place. 🤣
I have “Next Animorphs book” up there as a place holder for whichever one I happen to be on when that number comes up. Haven‘t yet decided if I‘ll plug in new books as I go through or leave empty spots and just read whichever book is closest to that number… Any other participants have a game plan?

Ruthiella I definitely need to add a few spaces for “next in the series” or similar. 🤔 2w

I‘ll be joining in on the #Roll100 challenge hosted by @PuddleJumper to help curb my book buying for 2022.

Visit the original post for the sign up sheet!

I‘m planning a book advent calendar for myself for next year, so I will still be buying 25 books, but I won‘t be buying anymore than that and I won‘t be allowing myself to read them until 2023. 😅

Ruthiella Good luck on your 25 book limit! It‘ll be tough but you can do it! 👍 2w
Kdgordon88 Wow! I love the advent calendar idea and wish you luck on your book buying limit. I‘m going to try to read out of what I already own for 2022, too. 2w

Super excited to receive my #NYWD22 list from @shortsarahrose 🥰
It‘s full of some gems, but these are the four I‘m most excited to read. I‘ve been meaning to watch the anime for Kiki‘s Delivery Service for years and just never gotten around to it, so I‘m very excited to read the book first. It‘ll finally give me the push I need! 😅
Now to figure out which of these gets to be first… Is it January yet?!?!
@monalyisha

monalyisha OOooOo I love the photo! 😍And interesting picks from her selections! Fun! 2w
paulfrankspencer Huh, I recently published a short story on my blog called 'Death in Her Hands.' Was unaware that there was a book by the same title. Thought I was being creative... 2w
shortsarahrose Kiki is a lot of fun. I still haven‘t watched the anime either, though it‘s definitely on my tbw (to be watched!) list! 2w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @paulfrankspencer I feel like there‘s only so many ways to rearrange words into unique titles. The longer humans are around creating, the more likely it is that repeats will happen. 2w

What. The. Actual. FUCK!?!
I wasn‘t expecting a perfect book-to-screen adaptation, but THIS is inexcusable!!! 🔥🤬🔥 The husband and I suffered through the first episode and I can guarantee we won‘t be putting ourselves through anymore of it. If you‘re a WoT fan and haven‘t watched it yet, save yourself! If you haven‘t read the books yet, PLEASE don‘t judge them by this joke of a show.
I‘m going to go cry over my precious copies of the series now…

BarbaraJean Oh noooooooooo!!! My husband and I were so looking forward to watching this over the holidays with his parents. The trailers have looked so promising. This is my husband‘s favorite book series and I read it on his recommendation while we were dating (and then engaged and married because it took that long…😂) What a disappointment. We‘re big enough fans that we‘ll probably watch at least the first episode to see what they did… but…😭😭 2w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @BarbaraJean Good luck! Have your favorite comfort food and/or drinks with you. I‘m a huge fan of the books and got my husband (who is not a reader) interested enough to start listening to the audiobooks. After the first episode he said, “I mean, I didn‘t even technically read the books, I had someone read them to me, and I‘M mad.” I think a 2022 re-read is in my future. I need to cleanse my soul… 😅 2w
Twainy I haven‘t read the books but I know they are beloved by a mighty few!!! I‘m terrified to watch live action Cowboy Bebop this weekend. Sometimes you just need to think of it as a completely different entity. So if it sucks it‘s not throwing shade on the original material. Sorry you were disappointed 😩 🤗 2w
See All 23 Comments
BarbaraJean Will definitely keep all the comfort items on hand!! At least they can never take the books away from us… 2w
AmyG Thank you. Ha! I think I will pass on this and just read the books some day. (edited) 2w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @Twainy Yeah, and I thought I‘d prepared myself, still… 🤷‍♀️ I didn‘t know there was a live action Cowboy Bebop coming out! You‘ll have to let me know if it‘s good or not. Fingers crossed! 2w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @AmyG I would definitely recommend reading the books first. Way more worthwhile! 😅 2w
TheLibrarian I just read your post to my husband. He loves the WoT series and was excited but nervous for the show. After seeing a trailer he doesn‘t have high expectations but he is even more bummed now. 2w
TheRiehlDeal Man… that sucks. I haven‘t read the books, but I think it‘s best to go into a movie/tv adaptation with somewhat low expectations. And I think Amazon has invested a lot in this show if memory serves me correctly. 2w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @TheLibrarian He may still enjoy it. I‘ve seen some reviews from other fans that seem much more forgiving than me. I knew it wasn‘t going to be perfect, but too much disappointed me. I didn‘t even like Game of Thrones, but would argue that what I saw of the first season, did an amazing job capturing the soul of the book. This just…didn‘t for me. 2w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @TheRiehlDeal I was keeping my expectations as low as possible, but it was like… (trying not to give spoilers for anyone that might still want to watch it) if suddenly Hermione Granger was made into the main character of the movies instead of Harry Potter… Maybe not exactly a BAD change to some fans, but absolutely untrue to the source material. Amazon might have invested a lot in the show, but I as a fan don‘t feel invested in. 2w
TugstenDragon Hey I was pretty upset about the first episode too, they did Perrin pretty dirty. I have watched the first three episodes and I think It gets better, I really hope they turn it around. But I understand not wanting to continue, I been wanting to rant to someone haha but none of my friends have read the books. 2w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @TugstenDragon None of my friends have read them either, so my husband has been the only person I‘ve been able to rant to. Feel free to rant away with me! 😅 Yeah, the Perrin situation was infuriating. 2w
The_Penniless_Author I told you I was scared to watch! 😫 2w
The_Penniless_Author I've only watched episode 1, but I hated it as much as you did. In fact, I can't tell you how happy I was to read your post, because the reviews so far have been largely positive, and I just can't figure it out. I always knew it was going to be tough to adapt WoT, even more so than other series. The paradox of WoT the book series is this - on the one hand it's bloated and repetitive in places and could probably stand to be streamlined a bit. 👇 2w
The_Penniless_Author On the other hand, the excessive detail and world building is its defining feature. Now that I'm approaching the end of book 13, all that time getting to know every minor character and city and bit of lore/history is paying off, because the Last Battle really feels like this epic, world-shattering event. When you cut all of that out to make the story fit TV, all you're left with is an uninspired, paint-by-numbers action/fantasy show. 2w
The_Penniless_Author Even with shrinking the scope of the story, there were so many baffling changes. Why not open with the Lews Therin scene that opens book 1, to give some background and perspective? Why can the Dragon Reborn suddenly be male or female, which undercuts the fear people have of him going insane from channeling saidin? Why are all the Emond's Fielders so indifferent about the fact that they might be the Dragon? Why does the dialogue suck? Argh! 🤬 2w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @The_Penniless_Author Omg, exactly!!! I‘m glad I‘m not the only one! I was starting to wonder if everyone else had really watched the same show as me! 🤣 I definitely should have taken your warning to heart and been way less optimistic about this. 🤦‍♀️ I was SCREAMING at the tv when they implied the Dragon Reborn could have been reborn a girl! The female characters are strong enough to stand on their own without that extra bullshit. 🔥🤬🔥 2w
The_Penniless_Author Agreed. I think the showrunners probably considered it a benign change that would make the show more "inclusive", like the color-blind casting. But it isn't, it fundamentally changes the story. Plus, like you said, it's unnecessary. Women rule most of the nations in WoT, and the Aes Sedai direct everything behind the scenes. Plus the Wise Ones, the Windfinders, the Maidens, etc. Egwene's story alone is as compelling as the Dragon Reborn's. 2w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @The_Penniless_Author Yes, and honestly I think her being forced to leave with the boys instead of deciding on her own that she‘s going for her own reasons weakens her character. And what was with all the over the top body movements while Moiraine was channeling?! I get that you might need some extra movement from live action characters so they‘re not just standing around, but it was SO hokey! 2w
The_Penniless_Author YES! I actually read a review that praised Rosamund Pike for her "commitment to channeling" ? It was so over the top I audibly groaned. You know, it's doing my soul a lot of good to talk to you about this. I "feel seen", as the kids like to say ? 2w

From Here to Eternity | Caitlin Doughty

5 ⭐️s!!
Caitlin Doughty is one of my favorite people to watch on YouTube, and I‘m JUST now getting around to reading one of her books!
This one covers her world travels to experience the death rituals of other cultures. It was a beautiful journey through what, especially for Westerners, can be an ugly topic.
Over the years, she‘s inspired me with her death positivity and I now feel much better about my plans for my body when I pass on.

megnews I‘m so thankful you posted this. I try to be a minimalist, low materialism. I‘ve never understood all the $ on funerals, caskets etc., why we need our bodies to stay intact forever (or as long as possible.) I plan to be buried in a shroud at a green natural cemetery. I‘ve just been telling my kids my plans so they have time to get used to the idea. So I‘m very interested in reading this. 2w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @megnews That‘s my plan as well! Although, like Caitlin, my REAL dream would be to be consumed by animals in a form of sky burial. But America isn‘t quite ready for that unfortunately. If you haven‘t checked out her YouTube channel, Ask A Mortician, I can‘t recommend it enough! 2w
megnews I‘ll check it out. Thanks! 2w

I really enjoyed this story from Luke‘s perspective! It made me want to rewatch the original trilogy, it‘s been far too long. Seeing Luke interact with a potential love interest that wasn‘t his sister was a nice change of pace. 😅 It has quite a few funny moments, but gets quite serious towards the end. The talks about his dad being betrayed by Vader (this is before he KNOWS) were particularly sobering. That last line…oof! 💔😭

One of my vacation traditions is to stop in at a local independent bookstore. The Book House was…interesting. Their selection overflows off the shelves and many are stored sideways in piles all over the floor, which freaks me out as a book lover. It was overwhelming and left me feeling like I didn‘t want to bother digging through the stacks. Still, it can‘t be said they don‘t have a wide selection, and I did walk out with Bully for Brontosaurus.🦕

I really liked this fast paced thrill ride. It‘s like Jurassic Park meets Jaws. The cast of characters was great, believably flawed and (mostly) likable. Alten‘s humor and way of writing dialogue are absolute gems. Looking forward to the rest of the series. I didn‘t know about the movie til I was reading this, and it has Jason Statham in it, so I HAVE to watch that now! 😅

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @mdm139 Glad to hear the movie‘s good too. I know sometimes stories don‘t transfer well to the silver screen, but this one feels like it‘d be a perfect one to adapt. 1mo

Bailedbailed

I feel terrible bailing on this seeing as not one but TWO people gifted it to me in swaps last year. 😬 I just couldn‘t take it anymore. Maybe I wasn‘t in the right state of mind for it… It was what I attempted to read most of the time I was sick. Might give it a second chance later, but leaning towards likely not. I found the characters, especially Alex, to be extremely unlikeable and rather boring. The writing style grated on my nerves too.

DGRachel Leigh Bardugo is one of those popular authors that I real want to love, but I‘ve bailed on everything I‘ve attempted. 😭 I just have to admit she‘s not for me and let it go. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @DGRachel This was the only book of hers I had read, so I don‘t know if I‘d end up being the same way. I know I tend to have differing opinions about some of the more popular authors. 😅 1mo

I was expecting this book to fit the theme for #TeamHendrix last month, but unfortunately it was more Toy Story than Chucky… Still a well written MG book that I‘ll be keeping on my shelves for any future Bookwyrms I might end up having. It dealt with real life problems that kids face, like bullying and feeling uncomfortable with who you are, without talking down to its audience. I chuckled a few times too.

This was everything I could have wanted in a horror book! Non-stop gore, humor, a whole group of characters to root for, more monsters and freaks than ever, and a “can‘t turn the pages fast enough” pace! Not for everyone. I‘m not joking about the non-stop gore, but if that and an insane line-up of monsters is your thing, READ THIS!
15 points for #TeamHendrix #Scarathlon2021

Okay, third time‘s the charm! 🤦‍♀️ Apparently I‘m not great at following simple directions or arithmetic. 😅 This is my ACTUAL grand total for #Scarathlon2021 Week 1 for #TeamHendrix. I am SO very sorry @StayCurious I went ahead and deleted my other post since it was a mess. I‘ll do better next week! 🤞
Also apologies to all of you running the readathons and getting double-tagged by me now. 😣

ReadingOver50 You are dedicated! 2mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @ReadingOver50 I just wish I‘d been more on top of accurately tracking my points before reporting in. 😅 But thank you! 🤗❤️ 2mo
TheAromaofBooks LOL Math isn't my strong point, either! 😂 I modified the #WinterGames points tracker that I believe @kimmypete1 made last year so I could use it for #Scarathlon2021 because there was no way I was going to be able to keep track of all those readathons otherwise!!! 2mo

kimmypete1 @TheAromaofBooks yassssss to modifying the book tracker!! I teach math and didn‘t want to calculate all those points, hence the tracker!🤣🤣 2mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @TheAromaofBooks @kimmypete1 Lol, I‘m definitely beginning to see the wisdom of using a dedicated points tracker rather than just my notes app. 😅 2mo
kimmypete1 @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm send me an email to kimberly.midnightbookgirl @ gmail and I‘ll share the winter one! 2mo
TheAromaofBooks I THINK clicking on this will open the edited version I made of the spreadsheet, which includes my garbled readathon tracker LOL https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vO0gCrizSxcP0nmqSV8drvyQ8daD6ATIgigbfrmP... @kimmypete1 I pretty much just changed some names and added the readathon tracker because I decided that I wasn't even up for that much math 😂 I keep adding readathons so weeks 3 & 4 aren't as detailed. 2mo
StayCurious Great job - you are more organized than me! 2mo

My ambitious goals for #AnyWayYouReadathon. I‘ve started The Haunted Forest Tour and think I‘ll fly through it. Loving it so far. Halloween Nation is a library book, hoping it‘s enjoyable. Meanest Doll in the World is sort of mid grade, so I can definitely whip through that one quick. From Here to Eternity will be the first Caitlin Doughty book I‘ve read, been a long time YouTube fan. If I can get all these in, I‘ll have a bingo on #BookSpinBingo!

RedxoHearts I loved her books and her YouTube as well! 2mo
Crazeedi I enjoyed one of her books, have others on tbr! 2mo
Crazeedi @RedxoHearts I didnt know she had a YouTube channel!! Thanks!! 2mo
Eggbeater Good luck on getting your bingo! 2mo
kimmypete1 Thanks for joining us! I love the cover for The Haunted Forest Tour. 2mo

Mehso-so

4 ⭐️s
I know, 4 stars but still only a so-so?!? I just can‘t quite settle on a solid rating for this. 😅
Maybe once I finish the trilogy I‘ll be able to judge it more completely. It‘s certainly an interesting roller coaster ride through culture clash via time travel. There were a few inaccuracies/liberties taken, but it was written in the 90‘s, so I went in sort of knowing to expect that. Multiple trigger warnings for some, but overall a fun read.

Okay #TeamHendrix…I did it for you.
2 ⭐️s
It felt…sanctimonious..? That‘s not…quite the word I‘m looking for… I didn‘t…like it. It was…Romeo and Juliet…with zombies. Zombies are…my favorite horror movie…monsters. But this…did to them…what Twilight did…to vampires. Ugh…
Good premise…terrible execution.
I was going…to use this as…week 1 challenge…for #Screamathon but…don‘t have strength…to watch the film.

@carlthecattt It arrived! 😍
I also realized today that I completely mailed off one of the wrong books to you. 🤦‍♀️ Feel free to keep it, I‘ll be repurchasing it for its original swap recipient. Your intended book came in late and with a torn page from HPB. Despite it being advertised as “Like New” 🤬 so I‘ll buy a better version and have it mailed out to you ASAP. So sorry for this mess! 🥺
#LLFS

carlthecattt So I got an Amazon prime package yesterday and I was like man I don‘t remember ordering anything but I‘ve preorder some books so I thought it must be one of those, but it was the new book and I‘m SO excited! Thank you soo much, I can‘t wait to dive into it! ❤️ 2mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @carlthecattt Lol, yay!! I‘m glad you‘re happy with it! I had a feeling it might get opened early, but no worries! ❤️ 2mo

The best #BookSpinBingo of the year!!!!! I wish the Halloween season could be more than just a month, I live for it!
#BookSpin is From Here to Eternity
#DoubleSpin is Doctor Sleep
I‘m heading out to my local library now to pick up Warm Bodies, which I‘ll slide into one of the Free Spaces.
@Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick were you still interested in doing a buddy read of Ninth House?

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! Looks great!!! 2mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Yes! It will help me prioritize it and it fulfills a couple of challenges. Do we want to split it up with so many chapters a week out just check in end of the month? 2mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Yay! I‘m better with reading a book straight through rather than breaking it up over a month, so end of the month sounds good if that works for you. 👍 My copy has reading group discussion questions in the back too. (Thank goodness, because I‘m terrible at coming up with that sort of thing! 🤣) 2mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Me too! Sounds perfect. 🤗 2mo

Martha is definitely one of my favorite characters so far. 🤣
The entire island of Nantucket has been transported back to about 1250 BC. No one knows why or how, but the local pastor is convinced Science can‘t explain it, only God, and that there must be a reason for it…
“Mount St. Helens didn‘t blow up because God was mad at the bears.” ❤️

1. LOVE THEM! 😍
2. Not outside of the books, but I have one from the Walking Dead tv show. 🧟‍♀️ 🧟‍♂️
3. My current read. I can‘t believe there‘s not a map, even if it‘s just the island of Nantucket itself! 🤨 A world map or navigation chart would be really fabulous. Luckily I have my World Atlas and Human History Timeline books to reference. 🤓😅

The Animorphs infiltrate the Yeerks newest front, a hospital, in order to stop the aliens from infesting a potential presidential candidate while he‘s in for surgery. Things go wrong and Jake falls headfirst into a small Yeerk pool. He comes out with one of the slugs in his head. He‘s become a Controller.
Another awesome edition to the series! ❤️
This is also my read for the #RoaringWolf Sci-Fi September prompt: Warp Speed (read in one day)

Roary47 Awww man I always wanted to read these as a kid, but I was a struggling reader when they were popular. I might just need to add this to my stacks. 😍 2mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @Roary47 I was at a friends house many years back when he was clearing out his attic. He had the ENTIRE collection and just gave them to me! I still can‘t believe how lucky I was. I never got to read them all when I was younger, so I‘m working my way through them now. 😅❤️ 2mo
BehindthePages I was obsessed with these as a kid! I still own them all! 2mo
Roary47 @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm that is super lucky! 💛 2mo

Hit both my goals for the #SuperSeptember readathon!
🤘😆🤘
Going to try and fit another short read in today, but also have a family function to go to, so might not be able to squeeze it in.
Hope everyone made their goals and is doing well! ❤️

EadieB Congrats 🎊 on making your goals! 3mo
