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 »

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is “All About Villains” and to be honest I struggled with a topic idea for this one. I don’t have a plethora of favorite villains. In fact, I can’t think of any off the top of my head… unless they end up NOT being… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday: Fallish Reads

Top Ten Tuesday 36

Even though it is decidedly NOT fallish around here yet (insert grumpy face), the linkup-wide theme for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is our Fall TBR lists.

Hi y’all! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme (per the lovely folks at The Broke & The Bookish) is in honor of the Fall TV season being upon us. Now, I have to confess…. I started blogging right around the time we cut the cable cord to save money. Coincidence?… Read more »

Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday! This week’s theme is books in a particular setting, so I chose my beautiful Kentucky home. I’ve lived here since I was a freshman in high school and I have absolutely fallen in love with its rolling hills, bluegrass, old stone fences,… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday: If I Had a Million Dollars (Or Maybe Just a Fully Loaded Gift Card)

J.K. Rowling, Jane Austen, Melanie Dickerson, Randy Alcorn, Ruth Logan Herne, Top Ten Tuesday 78

To be honest, this week’s Top Ten Tuesday was difficult for me. Mainly because in answer to the topic “Ten Books You’d Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed You a Fully Loaded Gift Card“, I really just want to say “my entire ‘to read’ list on Goodreads“.  But something… 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 »
