  Hi friends! It’s Tuesday, so that means another list of ten books but – I’m kidding no one at this point – there will be more than ten. Today’s theme involves the books we’ve loved that have under 2000 ratings on Goodreads. I must confess that when I saw… Read more »

Today is a freebie week for Top Ten Tuesday and I was inspired by this post from I Wish I Lived in a Library. It’s interesting to look back over the different reading phases you go through in your life, and I found myself taking several fond trips back down… Read more »

Technically, the bloggers over at The Broke & The Bookish said to do the… Read more »

Welcome, one and all, to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday – a blog linkup hosted each week by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is about those books we’ve picked up on a whim. Not the books we’ve chosen based on someone else’s recommendations or maybe not… Read more »

  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 »

Top Ten Tuesday: Most Recent 5-Star Reads

Camille Eide, Christian, Dani Pettrey, Dawn Crandall, Jen Turano, Kara Tippetts, Kathryn Springer, Lynette Eason, MaryLu Tyndall, Terri Blackstock, Top Ten Tuesday 58

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.

Top Ten Tuesday: Could I Have Your Attention, Please?

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.

Top Ten Tuesday: My March TBR list

Top Ten Tuesday 83

Welcome, one and all, to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday – hosted as always by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we’re all talking about our Spring TBR lists…. well…. we’re supposed to be talking about our Spring TBR lists.

But mine quickly became the size of a small novel.

So, I made an executive decision and limited myself to just March.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin This week on Top Ten Tuesday, we are talking about characters.  Technically the topic is about those characters that a) you alone dislike or b) you alone love.  But I kinda did that already (last year), so I decided to talk instead about those secondary… Read more »

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted as always by The Broke and the Bookish) is “books to read when you’re in the mood for ______”. I really enjoy these more open-ended themes because everyone’s posts have a greater chance of being tailored to their own personalities.
