@TheAromaofBooks #Bookspinbingo

It's my first time giving this a whirl and I'm not fully sure what I'm doing haha but here goes! My list is a mix of my Winter Games TBR and my general TBR 😁

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! Glad to have you along!! I'll tag you on the 2nd with the numbers... I always think it makes more sense when you see it actually happening, but just let me know if you have any questions!! 21h
Moll @TheAromaofBooks Eee thank you!! Yeah that's what I'm hoping haha; I'm sure I'll pick it up🙌 20h

Went for brunch this morning & stopped off at a little independent book shop near my house on the way home😊 One of these books is for #NYWD22 (Rebecca) and 3 people told me how good it is as I bought it so I'm excited! The other (Mermaid) is one I've been meaning to read since a literary talk I went to with @Emilymdxn back in 2019!

@monalyisha @dariazeoli

monalyisha Sounds like your bookstore‘s a winner! 😍 They both look great! 1w
Moll @monalyisha Yeah it's lush; I'm so excited!!😁❤ 1w

Thanks to @monalyisha for organising next year's #NYWD22 and to @dariazeoli for recommending some awesome books!! I think my plan is just to read as many of these as possible in January to begin with😁

I didn't get as much into NYWD as I would have liked to this year (so many of @mklong's recommended books are still very much on my list though!), so here goes attempt 2!!

dariazeoli Yay! I already made a Goodreads shelf for your picks 👊🏻 1w

I'm really enjoying Mansfield Park so far & I'm rooting for Edmund to get his act together and just fall for Fanny already😂😂

@TheSpineView #Two4Tuesday

Thanks for tagging me @Nute 🥰

1. There are TOO many to name that I still want to visit in London but one I visited recently that was on my list for a while was Gay's The Word - the oldest LGBT bookshop in the UK!
2 Hmmm most of the time I have an idea of what books I'm looking for yeah...but I often come out with 5 more that weren't on my list (especially if @Emilymdxn is involved😂)

TheSpineView Thanks for playing and happy Tuesday! ❤📚❤ 3w
Nute The Word, that‘s a cool name for a bookstore. I totally agree… there are so many bookstores to want to visit. 3w
Moll @TheSpineView Happy Tuesday!!❤ 3w
Moll @Nute It's called Gay's The Word (which I also think is a cool name!) - would recommend!! And yeah so many! Not a bad problem to have though hey?😊 3w
Nute Yes, a very cool name indeed! 3w

Help the Witch | Tom Cox
Mehso-so

I gave this one a so-so because even though I liked most stories on their own, I liked some a lot more than others and as a whole collection I would have liked it to be a bit more cohesive. Worth a read though I'd say nonetheless!

blurb
Moll
Help the Witch | Tom Cox

Story 10 - 'An Oral History of Margaret and the Village by Martthew and Five Others'

I'll be honest I didn't fully get this one, but parts of it got me thinking which can only be a good thing!

Story 9 - 'Seance'

Another funny one that had me chuckling

Story 7 - 'Just Good Friends'

Another favourite, and another to read while drinking a cup of tea under a blanket. I like that this book doesn't portray ghosts etc as necessarily bad or evil

blurb
Moll

Story 6 - 'Robot'

I think I liked this one - it got me thinking at least, particularly surrounding the uncertainty when it comes to the future

Warm Bodies: A Novel | Isaac Marion

Going to watch the film of Warm Bodies this morning!🧟‍♂️

Pretty sure that gets me more #Scarathlon2021 points too💯

I've really enjoyed Scarathlon and now I'm HYPED for the Winter Games - I'm going to try to figure out how readathons etc work for that moreso and make a little spreadsheet to track my points😁

Anyway now I've gotten distracted...off to watch Warm Bodies!

blurb
Moll
Help The Witch | COX. TOM, Tom Tom

Story 5 - 'The Pool'

I LOVED this one - now my new favourite so far

The way everything was described was so surreal & eerie; I got completely caught up in it

blurb
Moll
Help The Witch | COX. TOM, Tom Tom

Story 4 - 'Nine Tiny Stories About Houses'

Another interesting one - some of the stories were v creepy which had me finding the creepiness in the ones that were far less so

blurb
Moll
Help The Witch | COX. TOM, Tom Tom

Story 3 finished - 'Speed Awareness'

Definitely the creepiest and my favourite so far

blurb
Moll
Help The Witch | COX. TOM, Tom Tom

Story 2 finished - 'Listings'

This one was pretty fun too - I like the way the author is playing around with different ways of telling his stories. The first was told through diary entries and this was told through various property listings, newspaper snippets etc

blurb
Moll
Help The Witch | COX. TOM, Tom Tom

Story 1 finished - 'Help The Witch'

I quite liked this one, found it quite endearing - great to read under a blanket with a cup of tea

On a train out of London this morning to go and see my client (they have a slide in their office, I'm hyped😂), so thought I'd do a spot of reading!

Kicking off this week of #Scarathlon2021 with Help The Witch!🧙‍♀️

slategreyskies A slide!? So cool!! 1mo
Moll @slategreyskies Yes!! You can use it instead of going down the stairs and I did every time😂😂 1mo
slategreyskies Yay! That sounds like fun! Our downtown library has a slide like that too, but it‘s hidden away in the children‘s department, and adults aren‘t allowed to use it. I wish we were, because it‘s awesome!! 1mo

Hands down one of the best pieces of writing I've ever read - I don't even know how to sum it up beyond that! SO much is contained within these pages; I related to lots of it and yet also feel like I've been introduced to so much that was brand new to me - the art and artists spoken about among so much else. Faaaaaabulous. I'm definitely going to be reading more by Laing!!
