  Hi everyone! We are kicking off summer today on Top Ten Tuesday with our lists of beach reads! After last week’s atrociously difficult prompt for which I was only to come up with an embarrassing FOUR books (it still hurts a little), I have gone above and beyond this… Read more »

Heroes.

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.

To close out the month of March here on Top Ten Tuesday, we’re talking about our most recent 5-star reads. This was actually another difficult topic for me to cut off at 10 books because I’ve read so many fantastic books lately! But if I didn’t cut it off at 10, I’d still be talking about them next Tuesday… and probably the Tuesday after that.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted as always by The Broke and The Bookish) is all about music. There are any number of ways to go about this, but I decided to talk about books that make me think of music. Whether it’s the theme of the book or just its title, these ten eleven books fill my heart (and sometimes my lips) with a song.

I. Am. SO EXCITED. As soon as I saw that today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic was a Valentine’s KissingBooks Day freebie, I knew immediately what my post would be about. Way back in August, I wrote my KissingBooks 101 post and it remains one of my most popular/highest viewed posts. But since then I have discovered some additionally swoon-worthy KissingBooks – or remembered some that I forgot about when I was writing the first lesson. I’ve had several people ask me to do another KissingBooks 101, and I am nothing if not accommodating when it comes to this topic ūüėČ

Top Ten Tuesday: Tales from the TBR Tower

Top Ten Tuesday: Tales from the TBR Tower

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme (as always, hosted by The Broke and The Bookish) is about those books we recently added to our ever-growing TBR piles. Or, in my case, my TBR island.

Between all the wonderful-sounding new books coming out this year and all the wonderful-sounding new books that came out last year… and all the wonderful-sounding books I discover every Tuesday through the TTT linkup, my TBR pile/tower/island is out. of. control.

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.
