Hello friends! This week’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is yet another one that caused me some consternation for a while. We’re supposed to be talking about books we’ve read because someone recommended them to us. But… see… these days I pretty much only read books that people have asked… Read more »

Hello ladies and lords! After this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post on Books Set Outside the U.S. – in which I purposely left out England too – a couple of my dear reading friends still bemoaned England’s absence. I am nothing if not accommodating, but it really needed its… Read more »
I’m really excited about this week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday – Books Set Outside the United States. And yes I shamelessly borrowed my title from The Wizard of Oz, with Zuzu subbing for Toto in a pinch. In all honesty, that wouldn’t really work. She’d be more suited… Read more »
Just the word brings about images of tall, strong, and swoony men emerging into a story with enough testosterone to encourage a primal growl from the purist of prudes. Okay, so some heroes might encourage more of a quiet sigh as their tenderness, touch of tease, and/or quiet strength wrap around your heart like a constant hug…from nice strong arms.
A couple of weeks ago, I brought you a new list each day of the best books I read in 2015. This week will be similar except I will be talking about the books I’m most anticipating for the first half of 2016.
Let’s kick off the week with the contemporary genre!
It’s that time of year when everyone is making lists and checking them twice. Some are finding out who has been naughty and who has been nice. Some are making sure those in their circles of gifting know what they want for Christmas.
Here at Reading Is My SuperPower, I’m making lists too! Every day this week will feature the best books I read in 2015 from different genres.
Today’s focus is contemporary fiction.
This week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is “New-to-me Favorite Authors I Read for the First Time in 2015”. The great thing about starting a book blog this year is that I have been introduced to books by so many wonderful authors I hadn’t read before now! Narrowing down to 10 this week is difficult, so for brevity’s sake I didn’t include debut authors from 2015 in this list.
In honor of the upcoming holiday, I am dedicating this week’s Top Ten Tuesday to the fictional families I would most like to join for Thanksgiving. So, grab a plate, pile it high with all your favorite foods, and settle in for my dream invite list.

I was tagged by Deanna @ anovelglimpse (thanks, Deanna!) in the Fall Time Cozy Book Tag, started by Sam @ Novels and Nonsense. The one who needs rescuing isn’t always the one in the tower. Rapunzel can throw a knife better than any man. She paints beautiful flowering vines on the walls of her plaster… Read more »
So I was digging my way out of a TBR tower-collapse when I got the notification that CJ over at Not Another Dumb Blonde had nominated me for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. Thanks, CJ! Now, I normally don’t do tags/award because… well… SO MANY BOOKS! (See above graphic… Read more »
