Book Review: With This Ring by Witemeyer, Jennings, Connealy, & Jagears

Posted September 2, 2019 / 2 Comments

As y’all may remember, I reviewed books professionally for RT Book Reviews (aka Romantic Times) for three years until it shut its doors. Unfortunately, I wasn’t allowed to share these reviews with you here on the blog as long as they still belonged to the magazine. However, now that it […]

Posted August 30, 2016 / 53 Comments

Welcome to a Back to School freebie edition of Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly linkup hosted as always by the marvelous team at The Broke and the Bookish. Since we were given much freedom with our topics today, I opted to feature some of my favorite books with teachers as […]

Top Ten Tuesday: The Book Made Me Do It

Posted July 26, 2016 / 43 Comments

This week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is going to be fun to follow around amongst all the different blogs and see what everyone else posted. We’re talking about things that books have made us want to do – and by association the books that have inspired us to do […]



Top Ten Tuesday: Need Another Laugh?

Top Ten Tuesday: Need Another Laugh?

Posted April 19, 2016 / 89 Comments

  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 […]


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

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

Posted March 22, 2016 / 73 Comments

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: Favorite Historical Settings

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Historical Settings

Posted February 2, 2016 / 71 Comments

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.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is the books we are most anticipating in the first half of 2016. I started out the list yesterday with my contemporary “can’t waits”. Today I’m going to look at the historical fiction I’m most looking forward to from January to June.

And I’m warning you right now – there’s way more than ten 🙂

Yesterday I gave you my list of the best contemporary books I’ve read this year. Continuing my “best-of” theme for the week, today’s Top Ten Tuesday post fits right in. In no particular order, here are the ten 15 best books in the Historical genre that I read in 2015.

Top Ten Tuesday: Best Book Boyfriends

*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 […]

“You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.” ~Gone With the Wind “Is this a kissing book?” ~ The Princess Bride Class is in session today for Top Ten Tuesday! And, since I’m a teacher in my other life, I couldn’t be happier. Grab your notebooks […]

Top Ten Tuesday: My Auto-Buy Authors

Posted August 18, 2015 / 97 Comments

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 […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds

Posted July 28, 2015 / 7 Comments

On this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by BrokeandBookish), we are talking about characters who share our love of books. Several popped immediately to mind; others took a little digging through the recesses of my Goodreads lists. Pushing my list over 10 (I’m such a rebel), I’ve also included some […]

Can you believe that today is the last day of June already? Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is the top books we’ve all read so far this year. That’s really hard for me to narrow down to only 10, but I’ll give it a whirl 🙂 In no particular order […]


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

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

Posted June 19, 2015 / 5 Comments

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 […]

Top Ten Tuesday: My Summer TBR List

Posted June 16, 2015 / 3 Comments

I recently discovered the Top Ten Tuesday meme at The Broke and The Bookish and after reading their past and future themes, I wanted to play too! Bookishy people love lists… maybe it’s the words. Today we’re talking about the top ten books on our summer reading lists.  Now, to me, […]
