I am going to end 2022 on a bookish high note by participating in Holiday Romance Bingo hosted by @peanutnine ; Winter Cosy Bingo hosted by @PuddleJumper ; #midwintersolstice games hosted by @AllDebooks ; and #winterreadathon hosted by @Andrew65 @GHABI4ROSES @DieAReader

Even better, all these events mean I get to make more spreadsheet trackers! 💚😆

wanderinglynn @Cupcake12 it‘s a brand new social media site. A combo of instagram, Facebook, and twitter. The feed is chronological instead of by algorithm (which is what IG & Face do). It‘s so new, it‘s only on iOS (Apple) right now. They‘re doing beta testing on Android. 3d

1. Tagged is the last new book I‘ve read. I‘ve also been doing a lot of rereads & the Governess Game is the actual last book I finished.

2. I‘ve subscribed to both LitJoyCrate and OwlCrate. I still get OwlCrate as I like it a bit more. LitJoy was a bit too HP focused. Although I did like LitJoy‘s special editions of classics.

3. Not a book but a poem, I always read A Visit from St. Nicholas by Clement Clarke Moore

Pickpick

I loved the premise & it gave me an idea for a story (given that it‘s NaNoWriMo month and I haven‘t written a thing!). I mostly enjoyed the story & read it fairly quickly. But I did have to just read & not think too hard about whether things made sense. But in end, a few things, including some character development, bugged me. So a soft pick.

Thanks again Lisa for sending me this book! 😘

TracyReadsBooks I also loved the premise and thought it had great potential…which ultimately wasn‘t realized. When I finished, I was definitely left wanting more from the story than we got. 2w
TheSpineView You're welcome. Glad you enjoyed 2w
Karisimo I enjoyed it too, but had to consciously overlook some plot holes 😕 2w
wanderinglynn @TracyReadsBooks agree. The story could have used a good editor or beta reader to flush it out a bit more. 2w

A collection of 17 miniature SF stories, some previously published & some new to print. A typical Scalzi work—humorous & absurd. As Scalzi says: I like the idea of humans dealing with aliens not on a first contact level but on a 2,344,756th level. That is, when it‘s not anything new anymore.

Some I enjoyed more than others, but an overall fun collection. I listened to the audiobook, which has multiple narrators with Scalzi introducing each story.

1. It depends. I usually read fast enough that I read one at a time. But if I‘m reading a large tome or one I‘m not enjoying, I‘ll pick up a second book. I also usually listen an audiobook and will be reading a physical book.

2. One of my fave reads this year was Ordinary Monsters. I DNF‘d a few but the one I was surprised to DFN was Lincoln in the Bardo. I thought I would like it.

Eggs I DNFed Lincoln too…thanks for joining in 🧡 3w

Justice Calling | Annie Bellet

Mehso-so

A soft so-so because I liked the nerdy bits & had no expectations.

This is a short book. With a bit more fleshing out, it *might* have been better. But because it‘s so short, there is a lack of world building & character development. There was an attempt at character development, including what should have been a pivotal moment for the MC, but it didn't really work.

I‘ll go on to books 2 & 3 because it was a package deal on Audible.

wanderinglynn Also, the narrator sounds like a 12-year-old, which didn't help since the MC is supposed to be near 50, although she apparently looks closer to 30. Either way, the narrator wasn't the best. 3w

#two4tuesday

1. To me, it doesn‘t have to do with age. It has to do with whether the setting of the book is prior to when the book was written. I‘d generally say a 10-year difference makes it historical because the author is writing events that have already happened and the results of those past events tend to have already been felt.

2. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Not really my genre.

1. I don‘t think I‘ve read one set more than 2k years ago. Historical fiction isn‘t really my genre. I‘d rather just read a non-fiction history book.

2. Circe is on my TBR.

Thanks for the tag Lisa!

TheSpineView I hope you enjoy Circe. Good book! Thanks for playing 2mo
