Here‘s my holiday #tbr for #wintergames2021

I‘ll be reading non-holiday books from my physical tbr throughout the month as well, so I‘m sure I won‘t get through all of these. My library holds are starting to come in, and I can‘t wait to get started! #mistletoemaniacs @Clwojick

I thought it would be appropriate to finish Elvira‘s memoir on Halloween. I chose the audiobook for this one and I really enjoyed listening to Cassandra share her stories. This was a very well done celebrity memoir!

A little over the top and a ridiculous amount of twists at the end, but I had a lot of fun reading this over the weekend. This book was part of an #authenticbooks subscription box, so I had lots of fun items to help immerse myself in the reading.

I‘ll calculate all the other readathon points this qualifies for later!

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.

So much for my book buying ban 😅 I‘ll leave this here in case anyone wants to take advantage of the sale going on this weekend on the #nyrb site.

Kdgordon88 Saw your post last night so headed over to check out the sales. 7 books and a discounted year long subscription are on their way. 😁 After a long crap work week my resistance was low. This morning I regret nothing! Thanks for sharing 🙌🏼 5mo
britt_reads @Kdgordon88 Yay! I‘m glad you were able to find some good books. Those sales are hard to resist! I‘m really interested in the subscription too. I found a Visa gift card hiding in an old wallet yesterday and bought 4 books with that, but ended up going back for 4 more within the hour 🤷🏻‍♀️ 5mo

TJR has quickly become an auto-buy author for me, and this one didn‘t disappoint. This is not my favorite of her books, but that didn‘t stop me from picking it up every time I had a chance to sneak in a few quick chapters.

As always, I‘m a little behind on posting. This was my #doublespin for June.

I wasn‘t planning on buying any more books outside of my subscription boxes for awhile since I‘m so far behind, but I had a birthday recently and my boyfriend spoiled me. This is my birthday #bookhaul and I don‘t even know where to begin. I probably won‘t get to any of these until next month. See any favorites that I should prioritize?

Meticulously researched while still managing to be just as compelling and compulsively readable as fiction. This is definitely one of my favorite reads of the year! I‘ll have to check out his other books.

I got some exciting #bookmail recently that I forgot to post! This is my first #authenticbooks subscription box and I‘m absolutely in love with it. It‘s curated so perfectly. I picked Malibu Rising for my main book and added on The Soulmate Equation because of course I wanted both. I‘m going out of town for my birthday on Sunday, and I think one of these will have to come with me.

This book is hard to describe since it‘s best to not know anything going into it. Strange and confusing in the first half? Yes. But this unique story is so worth it. Even though I felt like I was wandering aimlessly through a good chunk of the book, I was still completely enthralled from the beginning. Brilliant.

My last book of 2020 and #doublespin

This is such an important and informative book about intersectional feminism. She does a great job explaining how different social issues, those that disproportionately impact POC, should be addressed as an essential part of feminism. The movement often ignores these issues and focuses only on the concerns of cis white women.

😳 Everyone wasn‘t kidding about that ending. This is one of my oldest #botm selections that has been sitting on my shelf for a few years now. I took a break from psychological thrillers after reading quite a few that were too predictable. This one would‘ve been what I was looking for. I couldn‘t put it down, and that ending actually surprised me.

This is my plan for the #booked2021 winter prompts! I completely gave up on all of the reading challenges that I set out to participate in last year. I just couldn‘t stay focused when life became overwhelming. Hopefully I‘ll have better luck this year!

1. Set in Australia
2. Nonfiction science written by a woman
3. Baked goods on cover
4. #covidheroes
5. Mustache on cover
6. Author‘s first name starts with an A, B, or C

BarbaraTheBibliophage I can vouch for two of these! Sweetgrass and Sourdough are both terrific. Enjoy! 11mo

Cinfhen Same @marleed it‘s my go to suggestion for a book that makes you laugh out loud!!! I‘m also reading The Dry for #Australia 👯‍♀️Your picks look perfect 👌🏾 11mo
marleed @Cinfhen I dare anyone to read aloud the description of walking in on your wife while she is in heated a compromising position with your boss - and not find tears in your eyes from laughing so hard. 11mo
Cinfhen For me it was all of the Jewish family references and synagogue moments. They just rang SO TRUE @marleed but that first scene WAS hilarious 😆 11mo
britt_reads @BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘ve been curious about Sourdough for awhile. Sweetgrass was recently recommended to me by one of my professors, and I ended up getting it for Christmas. I‘m really excited for both! 11mo

He picked this out for me. I got him Descender and Vision, and I‘m excited to read both of those when he‘s done.
