  This week’s theme is books that make you laugh.  My first thought was, “Really?” Because it feels like I just did that topic (probably since I did).  So I thought about doing some bookish humor instead… but … eh.  At the end of the day, I decided I have enough… Read more »

Christian, Deeanne Gist, Denise Hunter, Karen Witemeyer, Kathryn Stockett, Kristy Cambron, Laura Frantz, Lynn Austin, Mary Davis, Regina Jennings, Top Ten Tuesday 73

Today on Top Ten Tuesday, the team at The Broke and the Bookish thought we should talk about those books that we don’t profile as often. Because, let’s face it – as book bloggers we do have a collection of books and authors that seem to crop up in almost every post. Especially the linkups and memes. So this Tuesday, we dedicate our blogs to those books we do really love so very much… but don’t talk about nearly enough.

This week’s topic has several possible variations but I’m choosing to talk about my favorite historical settings. You know, those periods of history whose mere mention in a book blurb has your radar engaged and your interest piqued.

*Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog linkup hosted by The Broke and the Bookish I have a confession to make.  In case you didn’t already know, I tend to develop book crushes.  (Shocking, I’m sure.) The good news for my husband is that they disappear fairly quickly when I… Read more »

I must confess – today’s topic (also known as – If you write it, I will read it) stresses me out.  Why? Because I have SO MANY AUTHORS on my I-will-read-whatever-they-write list.  I can’t possibly narrow it down to ten.  (Next confession: My budget doesn’t allow for a lot of… Read more »

On this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by BrokeandBookish), we are talking about characters who share our love of books.

Favorites Friday Review: A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer | New Release

Favorites Friday Review: A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer | New Release

Christian, Favorites Friday, historical, Karen Witemeyer, romance 5

I honestly didn’t think anything could topple Short-Straw Bride from its firmly-entrenched position as my favorite book by award-winning author Karen Witemeyer, but I think A Worthy Pursuit may have done just that.  It’s close though – Short-Straw could still claw its way back up to share the pedestal – but the bottom line… Read more »
