Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Characters on Screen

Posted September 6, 2016 / 55 Comments

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? […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Books Set in Kentucky

Top Ten Tuesday: Books Set in Kentucky

Posted August 16, 2016 / 59 Comments

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, […]

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 […]

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: All-Time Favorites

Top Ten Tuesday: All-Time Favorites

Posted January 26, 2016 / 90 Comments

The books I’m talking about today are those books that I consider eternal favorites. Many are from childhood or adolescence, some I acquired in adulthood, but all are books that have stuck with me and refuse to leave my heart. They are also all books that I reread often.


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 […]
