Top Ten Tuesday: Teachers in Fiction

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 Kentucky Derby… of my books.

Top Ten Tuesday: The Kentucky Derby… of my books.

Posted May 24, 2016 / 44 Comments

  Confession: I had no idea what to do for this week’s theme.  The ladies at The Broke and the Bookish suggested that this week be about those books for which we feel differently now that time has passed.  Ugh.  First of all, if I love a book, I love it. […]


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 […]

Yeah. I hate Spring Daylight Savings Time. So I thought we could all use a bit of cheering up.

How about some free books? Or some great discounts?

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 […]

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.


Top Ten Tuesday: KissingBooks 101 Lesson Two (plus a HUGE Giveaway!)

Top Ten Tuesday: KissingBooks 101 Lesson Two (plus a HUGE Giveaway!)

Posted February 9, 2016 / 352 Comments

I. Am. SO EXCITED. As soon as I saw that today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic was a Valentine’s KissingBooks Day freebie, I knew immediately what my post would be about. Way back in August, I wrote my KissingBooks 101 post and it remains one of my most popular/highest viewed posts. But since then I have discovered some additionally swoon-worthy KissingBooks – or remembered some that I forgot about when I was writing the first lesson. I’ve had several people ask me to do another KissingBooks 101, and I am nothing if not accommodating when it comes to this topic 😉


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.
