Whoop! Finished the board! I had so much fun doing this and I found some amazing books and authors that I don't think I would have read otherwise

I'll post my list later when I'm at a computer and not finger pecking at my phone

@lgbtqbookbingo @Kenyazero

Kenyazero I'm glad you discovered new authors! I'm looking forward to seeing your list :) 7h

I can see why people enjoyed this book but it fell flat for me. It was clearly written by someone who knows nothing about the UK and has a very shallow or naive understanding on politics

With everything going on right now it felt tone deaf

🤣 The insta love of insta love. Two insufferable and dislikable people fall in love without any build up and that love heals them of their suicidal thoughts, trust issues, self esteem issues ... Yeah. I kept reading because I was sure it couldn't keep getting worse (surprise it did!)

This is the last of my free Kindle Christmas books and this was terrible 🤣

The authorial insertions were annoying and there was a strange religious vibe to the whole thing which was not my thing

This is for the second book in the series which was free on Kindle. This wasn't a holiday romance book so much as a romance book with Christmas as a backdrop

There love triangle was weak and I found the set up very strange and forced

This was a Hallmark film in book form which I found really hard to handle. Reading is effort and I have to concentrate whereas with films I can zone out

If you want Hallmark romance then give this a go

Really enjoyable. I think this is the last in the series and it felt like a good ending

There were a few occasions that threw me out of the book because it didn't feel right for the setting. Just a few things that didn't read quite right for being in the UK

Oh wow! Thanks to everyone who signed up! There are a lot more of you than expected which is amazing!

With December being full of readathons, challenges and real life stuff I thought I‘d better get some rules and stuff up before January 1st

#roll100 is a super chill challenge to help clear down some TBR piles or just to randomise your reading

PuddleJumper 1/8 It is open to everyone! Sign-ups will remain up all year round: https://forms.gle/zSoVNJotvo8ZofWG7 This is just so I get everyone‘s Litsy handle when I‘m tagging posts 1w
PuddleJumper 2/8 This is a chill challenge; you participate as much or as little as you want. There is no pressure to join in each month. I just want people to have fun and I want to roll dice because I‘m a dice goblin 1w
PuddleJumper 3/8 Make a list of 100 books you want to read. These can be 100 different books or you can include a book multiple times. You can share your list or not, if you share it please tag me @puddlejumper so I can ooh and aaah over it 1w
See All 32 Comments
PuddleJumper 4/8 On the 1st of each month I will roll up two numbers from 1-100 using a d100 & d10. During the month you try and read those numbers from your list. You can pick one number or you can do both 1w
PuddleJumper 5/8 I‘m using D&D 5e rules for percentile rolls: 00 is a zero, and 0 is a zero unless rolled together then it is 100 1w
PuddleJumper 6/8 When you read the book(s), tag me in your review so I can make happy noises. DNFs count, the goal is to read and get your TBR piles down 1w
PuddleJumper 7/8 Any numbers you read, add in a new book so if that number is rolled again you still have a book to read 1w
PuddleJumper 8/8 I think that is everything! Ask me questions if things don‘t make sense or they need clarifying, this is my first time running a challenge like this so there will be things that could be done better 1w
SpookyMazeOfBooks Can't wait to play 1w
EnchantedToReadYou Yay so excited to play! 1w
Clwojick I just want to roll dice because I‘m a dice goblin 😂 Can‘t wait! I‘m hoping to prioritize these books across a few challenges, so theres a chance I‘ll have finished it before it‘s officially rolled. Instead of adding new books after I‘ve completed one, I think I‘ll read the next book up or down. That way I don‘t have to white out or rewrite my pretty #bulletjoural list 😜 1w
BarkingMadRun I‘m so excited!! 1w
PuddleJumper @Clwojick 😂 Fair enough! It's so annoying when you get everything pretty and have to re-do it! 1w
Larkken Love it! I made a list of unread kindle daily deals for this and … well, there are more than 100. It was time 😂 1w
Jari-chan Such a great idea! Can't wait for the challenge to start! 1w

Clwojick @Larkken I feel you, my kindle has almost 3,000 books. How is that even possible?😅 1w
PuddleJumper @maich I'm going to roll two numbers each month and everyone will try and read those books. You are welcome to use a random generator the rest of the month if you want to keep randomizing your reads 1w
Cheshirecat913 Yay. I wrote up my list and yeah, I have more than a 100. I thought I got all the physical book I owned before I started on my ebooks but realized I missed a bookshelf. 😄 1w
LibrarianRyan I plan on doing this but I can not open a google doc at work, so I will sign up later. 1w
KristiAhlers Getting ready to write up my list right now!!! 1w
StayCurious I‘m so excited for this one! 1w
MeganAnn Just signed up. Now off to compile my list. I like @Clwojick ‘s idea to read the next book up or down if a number is rolled twice because I‘ll probably write my list up in my journal as well. 3d
PuddleJumper @MeganAnn Welcome! Yeah, I think that's a really good idea especially if you are keeping a journal or wanting to clear things down 3d

A collection of winter themed romance short stories. They were all as cliched and as implausible as any holiday Hallmark film.

The writing was good, there was build up to the romances and the sex scenes were pretty decent.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 1w
StayCurious Great! Just make sure you count each story as it's own point getter - so if they are all Christmas stories, that's 25 a pop! 1w

My current books for #ShelfofShame challenge

These are books that I've been 'reading' for months - this just means I started it, put it down and forgot about it 😅

It's a terrible habit I have when I feel restless so I wany to just read or discard not have them sitting on my shelf for ages

@Clwojick

This may be because I'm stuffed full of cold but I found this book really hard to follow. I didn't particularly like the writing style, I found it bounced around without saying much.

It was a bit too technical to for me which again, full of cold, made it even harder to read

I am embarking on an epic challenge to try and clear down my books and not buy any new ones in 2022. I‘m combining this with my unhealthy love of dice to create #roll100

Anyone can join me! It‘s just a fun way to clear down TBR piles and I get to take pictures of my pretty dice

Make a list of 100 books you want to read and every month I‘ll roll to get a number between 1-100 and you read that book

Sign up https://forms.gle/zSoVNJotvo8ZofWG7

What reading apps do people use?

Goodreads is becoming increasingly frustrating to use so I want to swap to something else. I want to track what I've read and be able to search for stuff so I don't buy something I've already read

I'd also like something that tracks time spent reading

Cat for attention 😅

#bookapps #readingapps

sebrittainclark StoryGraph can import your goodreads books so you don't have to re-enter everything. It also tracks reading challenges and other book stats better, but it does just track reading time by dates, but time spent reading. 3w
PuddleJumper @sebrittainclark Oh great! I've been using that for challenges but didn't realize I could port stuff over. That would be super useful. Thanks! 3w

thegreensofa Bookly is a good way of tracking what you have read and when. It‘s only star ratings, not reviews though, and it‘s personal (no social platform on it at all except for screenshots to post elsewhere if you want to share anything). But I use it and like it for my tracking 😊 3w
PuddleJumper @thegreensofa Oh thanks! That sounds what I want, I'll check it out! Thanks! (edited) 3w
TheLibrarian I agree with @thegreensofa about Bookly. Great way to track your reading progress without social media or others being involved. Although you can‘t write a review, they do have thought sections for each book. And I just realized you can do half stars instead of full, unlike Goodreads. 3w
thegreensofa @TheLibrarian ..half stars! Wow I never knew!!!! Thank you so much for pointing that out. How many times I have wished I could do that! 😯📚👏🏻 3w
Amandajoy Storygraph is great! Among other things, it lets you set up reading challenges. I just created one for your #100rolls challenge to make it easier to keep up with. 3w

I started reading this because the live action is super cute. The manga is super cute as well.

The live action follows it quite faithfully so the first volume is episodes 1-2.

It's a quick and fluffy read and I'm looking forward to reading more.

Well this was fucking weird, enjoyable but weird. I'm not sure if I liked it but it was an experience to read it

November #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks I keep going back and forth about whether I want to read this one!! I think I may try it eventually. 4w
PuddleJumper @TheAromaofBooks I'm glad I read it, she is a great story teller, but it was still strange 4w

I'd like to start (and maybe finish) my #bookspin book Piranesi and find a book beginning with E that I can use for the alphabet reading challenge

Andrew65 Great, good luck 😊 1mo

This is mostly for me but I would be thrilled if anyone wants to join me!

#wintercosy is all about cosying up with a book during those long winter days. Your books can be cosy, or you can be cosy, it doesn‘t matter just read and be happy!

Set your own goals and have fun

If you want to join in make a post with your goals and tag me @puddlejumper and I will comment with appropriate appreciative noises

4thhouseontheleft Sounds great! I‘m all for cozying up by the fire to read, albeit my books probably won‘t be cozies 😃 Too many challenge prompts I am still trying to complete before the end of the year! 1mo
