It took me a little longer to make my decision this month. I was only planning on choosing one, but… 🤷🏻‍♀️ At least my semester‘s almost over so I can go back to actually reading and not just collecting books. #BOTM

School has been keeping me very busy, but I had a great time doing some shopping with the gift cards that I received over the holidays. #bookhaul

jlhammar Ooooh, fun! I've been tempted to get Madhouse. I'm hoping to read This Must Be The Place and Sorrow and Bliss soon. 2mo
wanderinglynn The Boy Who Was Raised As A Dog is a difficult read. Be prepared. I read it when I worked in child dependency court. Excellent information, especially on brain development, but oh so heartbreaking. 2mo
britt_reads @jlhammar I‘m very intrigued by Madhouse, and currently trying to decide between those 3 choices for my next read! 2mo
britt_reads @wanderinglynn thank you for the warning! I‘m currently in school for social work and planning on doing my internship next year at a youth emergency shelter, so I thought this would be a good one to pick up. Definitely heartbreaking though. 2mo

Disappearing Earth | Julia Phillips
post image
Pickpick

This was not what I was expecting, but I loved it! Not your typical mystery, this gives us a glimpse into the lives of many different characters residing in the Kamchatka peninsula. It reads like a short story collection, with the mystery of the missing girls looming in the background. This was very atmospheric with a strong sense of place, but likely won‘t be for everyone if you are wanting more of a traditional mystery.

I can‘t believe #wintergames2021 is already coming to an end! I still have to get my readathon and word search points together, but I managed to find 990 words for the game this week for 9,900 points.

Bonus: My main reading goal this year is to read more books from my shelves. I have way to many books on my physical tbr that I‘m really excited about, but it‘s so easy to be tempted by new releases.

My #bookspin and #bookspinbingo list for January! I always look forward to preparing my list for the month, even if I don‘t manage to read as much as I‘d like. This month, I‘m prioritizing the books from my physical tbr that I really wanted to read last year along with some of the books I‘ve received over the holidays.

Crying in H Mart: A Memoir | Michelle Zauner
post image
Pickpick

Fantastic memoir! Michelle discusses the loss of her mother, the food that connects them, and the ways she grapples with her cultural identity as a Korean American. I had to set this down often as I could feel her grief through the pages. I lost my mom a few years ago, so it‘s still a tender topic, but this was so well done that I was compelled to continue. One of my favorites of the year.

Duke, Actually | Jenny Holiday

I was having a hard time getting through many holiday romances this year, but this was a cute festive rom-com that helped pull me out of a bit of a reading slump. I hadn‘t realized this was the second book in a series when I picked it up, and I‘m sure it would‘ve been even better if I read the first book. Still, I had no problem jumping in and thought it held up well on its own.

I‘ve been too busy to keep up with reading or posting on Litsy much these past couple of weeks, but I‘m really looking forward to ringing in the new year with my Christmas #bookhaul (pictured). I‘m also excited about ending 2021 with a few wonderful books that I‘ve recently started, and I‘m confident they will make it onto my list of favorites for the year.

I had fun reading this one last year, so when I saw that it was our #teamread for #wintergames2021 I decided to try the audiobook. I think a large part of why I enjoy this so much is reading about their traditions at the cabin. It puts me in the mood for more holiday reading.

Mehso-so

Quick, light Christmas read. The story was ok, but it isn‘t my favorite Macomber. I think I just didn‘t feel that invested in the couple. These holiday romances may be cheesy, but that‘s about all I can handle during this time of year anyway.

My #bookspinbingo for December. The beginning of the month is going to be a little chaotic, but I‘m hoping to have much more time to read in a couple weeks.

Both of these are from my physical tbr and have been sitting on my shelves for quite awhile, so I‘m hoping this will motivate me to finally pick them up.

Addictive, dark, and twisted… I loved this book! This was one of the best thrillers I‘ve read in quite some time. I thought it was well written and impossible to put down, but I must warn that it might be too disturbing and graphic for some readers.
CW: multiple rapes, graphic violence
