Just finished Licking Her Christmas cookies by Alina Jacobs. Turns out I read the last book in a series first... whoops. But this book was an absolute goldmine as far as the #wgwordsearch is concerned with 1,070 Christmas words for a total of 10,700pts.

I'm keeping track of all the points on the worksheet but do I have to post everytime I earn points? 🤔

I have a total of 12,862pts thus far for #mistletoemaniacs #wintergames

First book from my December TBR and I'm having a hard time with it. But I want to finish before my BOTM box arrives.

The Baking show holiday edition!! Oooo 5pts@

I finished MistleText by Whitney Dineen & Melanie Summers for #wgwordsearch it produced 2,080pts plus 25pts for being a holiday read which absolutely blew my mind!

I need to print the worksheet. But I am admittedly a little overwhelmed. #MistletoeManiacs #WinterGames

Am I doing this right? Lol

Got my buddy read for #wintergames to all #mistletoemaniacs that don't have one already this was only 1.99 on kindle.

I'm excited, this seems like it's going to be just what I need right now since I am home fighting my second bout of covid.

So I tried not to make my TBR too ambitious because there are a TON of super adorable holiday books I want to read.

So I'm keeping is simple:
1. The Perfect Husband (Lisa Gardner)
2. Tear Me Apart (J.Ta. Ellison)
3. How to Marry Keanu Reeves in 90 Days (K.M Jackson)
Not pictured
4. A History of Wild Places (Shea Earnshaw)

I loved this book, I watch a lot of Mayday/Air Crash Investigation shows and while those are true stories. This book had the same feeling as watching one of those shows, it was full of tension and I loved all of the characters.

It's rare that I can't find something good to say about a book. It was just boring, I didn't like any of the characters, and the repetitive scenes were just annoying.

My little nerd heart went a little crazy when my boyfriend gave me my birthday present early. A bookcase!

On Christmas eve 2018 we lost everything in an apartment fire, including the bookcases I had just gotten to house my extensive book collection. Replacing books has taken much longer than I thought it would, but I am so happy.

Also, who displays their book of the months by their date instead of alphabetically?

The Maidens: A Novel | Alex Michaelides

Even though he was gone for good-she was still in love and didn't know what to do with all this love of hers. There was so much of it, and it was so messy: leaking, spilling, tumbling out of her, like stuffing falling out of an old rag doll that was coming apart at the seams.

Pickpick

Every single character is awful and I loved it! I liked that I wasn't able to pin-point the killer. I kept flopping between two of the characters and I definitely thought it was one of the two and was pleasantly surprised when I was wrong. I don't think this book is going to be widely loved though. It's a bit... camp? I don't know if that's the right way to describe it but think Desperate housewives but more desperate.

I have so many questions for Litsy readers...

•What do you like to read?
•How do you like to read? paper books or digital? Both?
•If both, how do you decide which type to buy?
•Do you find you retain audiobooks the same way you would if you had read it instead of listened?
•Do you keep all your BOTM books or sell/trade them?

#100questions #books #reading #inquiringminds #bookofthemonth #botm #bookhoader #bookworm

Branwen I much rather prefer physical books over digital copies. I love smelling and holding a book in my hands! 😍💕📚 I also keep all my BOTM books, unless it's one I really didn't like, but that's rarely the case! 8mo

♠️I‘ll read just about any genre but I especially love psychological thrillers & horror

I don't know what to read next. I slogged through How Lucky by Will Leitch and then sped through The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon, and now I don't know where to go next.

How Lucky: A Novel | Will Leitch
Mehso-so

I really wanted to love this book but it was a super slow read and even though the author did a good job helping me to understand SMA, in the end I felt like I didn't really connect with Daniel. I see what Will Leitch was going for but for me it just didn't work.

On Christmas eve 2018 my boyfriend and I lost everything we owned in an apartment fire, I recently contacted Book of the Month club to see about replacing the books I lost. They sent me the 6 they had in stock for free! I was shocked and so happy.

I'm still missing 9 books, if anyone has a good idea where to find used BOTM books please let me know!

I tried, I really did but this book is so boring! Halfway through and I stopped caring about any of it. Also, telling the story through someone's letters but not formatting it as a letter is really annoying. Does she find Dracula in the end? I don't know and I don't care. DNF.

I keep an Amazon wishlist full of books I'm interested in so I can easily find them again when I need a book, but I'm thinking of buying the whole list with my tax refund this year. There are probably 20+ books on the list and just the idea of doing this makes me intensely happy.

I first learned about this book through the Criminal podcast, they had an episode that went into this womans story and when the episode was over I wanted more and knew I would have to read the book she wrote.

This book is about so much more than identity theft. It's about secrets, and betrayal, also the blinders we have where our loved ones are concerned. I was sad for Axton, her mother's actions have impacted so much of her life.

MallenNC I learned about this from that Criminal episode too. I still think about it and can‘t believe it. 12mo
