Hey #LMPBC Group R!

Here are my choices. I don‘t even know what I‘m leaning toward, so just let me know what you think.

See All 11 Comments
Chrissyreadit My first choice would be The Dating Plan, then Speak Easy Speak Love, then Perfectly Adequate. 10mo
TheAromaofBooks Oh these all look fun!! I'm quite attracted to the cover of The Dating Plan haha I've also read other Jill Mansell books & enjoyed them, so Beachcomber Bay would probably be my second choice, but they all look good!! 10mo
Laughterhp My first choice would be Dating Plan and then Heiress Gets a Duke. But I would be down for any of them but On the Island. The premise of that one creeps me out 😬😬 10mo
Laughterhp @hes7 Just checking in. I see if you haven‘t been on in a couple months. I haven‘t gotten your book yet so wanted to see if anything was going on. @TheAromaofBooks @Chrissyreadit 8mo

My January #BookSpinBingo.

This is the best I‘ve done in a few months, especially since I actually got a bingo. 🙌🏻 I‘m going to keep reading from this list though—I read my #DoubleSpin book (In Your Wildest Scottish Dreams 3⭐️), but still need to get to my #BookSpin book.

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! Sometimes you just have to soak in some relaxing reads!! 10mo

@Hestapleton is hosting #slumpathon this weekend, if anyone needs an (extra) excuse to focus on reading.

I‘m already planning to participate in a historical-romance readathon (#HRReadathon on Instagram), starting this weekend, so this is perfect timing for me—romance seems to be the only thing keeping me from a slump these days.

#AnyWayYouReadathon Wrap-Up

I finished a few books and started a few more. Mixed feelings about them all.

I also managed to watch the whole season of Bridgerton. 😍 LOVED it. I need more.

Bakingbookworm I‘m on episode 3 of Bridgerton and I‘m loving it. I‘m nervous that the books may not live up to my expectations. 11mo
Eggbeater Thanks for participating! 11mo
kimmypete1 LOVED Bridgerton. Simon is beyond swoonworthy imo. Thanks for joining! 11mo
SheReadsAndWrites @Bakingbookworm I read the whole series a few years ago and I think they have a high chance of living up to expectation. 😊 Julia Quinn is a fave Regency author and they stuck pretty close to the story in the Netflix series. And the characters. It's just fun!! 🤓 Happy reading! 11mo
Bakingbookworm @SheReadsAndWrites Good to know! I‘ll wait until I‘m done this season and then read the books. 11mo

Deck of Cards | Rebecca Lickiss

I can‘t resist joining the #TBRDeckofCards challenge—but I don‘t have the energy to come up 52 prompts on my own, so I used a random word generator. 😂

Here are the five cards I drew for January:

5♠️: Condition
Q♠️: Glow
3♣️: Merchant
6♣️: Planet
9♣️: Witness

I‘m planning to be flexible with how a book can fulfill one of these prompts (by title, cover, story, quote, etc.) and see what happens.

Texreader Cool!! 11mo
Tattooedteacher You've just totally made that challenge more accessible. Love the idea of a word generator. Thank you! 11mo

Well, I had every intention of participating more in #WinterGames in December... Sorry, #MerryReaders. But I still completed 19 #TBRreads (plus 8 picture books), 25 #HolidayReads, 23 movies, and 16 holiday-themed TV episodes. (I did also read for a total 119h12m, but the thought of trying to calculate readathon and bingo points at this point is slightly overwhelming.)

Total points: 1,225

I never got around to actually posting my list, but still, here‘s my #BookSpinBingo for January. Because historical romance is what worked best for me last year, I figured it would be the best way to kickstart my reading for 2021.

#DoubleSpin: In Your Wildest Scottish Dreams

As fire sweeps the city, the lives of Meg and Sylvie change, of course. The aftermath of the disaster brings murder, secrets, and a desperation to save their father (and some romance, too!). Meg and Sylvie often find themselves at odds with each other, but time and again, prove wise enough to reconcile and work together in order to sort through the intrigue and overcome the obstacles.
