Happy February – official (according to me) KissingBooks month! And welcome to what I hope will be another annual giveaway series, much like the Christmas Reads series I do each November/December. This LOVE STORIES giveaway series is thusly named for two reasons – first, because I love stories and second, […]
today’s book: an old-fashioned texas christmas by karen witemeyer Christmas is only 28 days away (and Thanksgiving is only ONE DAY away) according to Google (if we get to Dec 25th and we have days left over, blame Google, not me lol. Though I did figure out the Thanksgiving one […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Yesterday, I talked about the contemporary fiction new releases that I’m most looking forward to this summer. Today, for Top Ten Tuesday, I’m looking at my most anticipated historical fiction new releases for June, July, and August. Technically, the bloggers over at The Broke & The Bookish said to do the […]
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 […]
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.
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 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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
