Top Ten Tuesday: The Book Made Me Do It

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 […]


Around the World in Books: England

Around the World in Books: England

Posted July 21, 2016 / 52 Comments

  Hello ladies and lords! After this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post on Books Set Outside the U.S. – in which I purposely left out England too – a couple of my dear reading friends still bemoaned England’s absence.  I am nothing if not accommodating, but it really needed its […]

First Line Friday: Week 16

Posted July 15, 2016 / 43 Comments

Yay for Fridays! And since it’s Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line! BUT WAIT! Let’s mix things up a bit today. Since it’s July 15th (7/15), you can either leave the first line from Chapter 7 or Chapter […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Beach Reads 2016

Posted May 31, 2016 / 58 Comments

  Hi everyone! We are kicking off summer today on Top Ten Tuesday with our lists of beach reads! After last week’s atrociously difficult prompt for which I was only to come up with an embarrassing FOUR books (it still hurts a little), I have gone above and beyond this […]


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 […]

Review (and a Giveaway!): A Twist of Faith by Pepper D. Basham

“Ain’t is not a word.” “Put your ‘ing’ on the ends of words.” “Light is made up of a diphthong, not one long, flat vowel.” “Stand up straight.” “Put away your toothpick.” These are just some of the “bossy’ (per Reese) reminders that Dr. Adelina Roseland passes along to Reese […]


Swooniest Heroes (a conversation with Pepper Basham)

Swooniest Heroes (a conversation with Pepper Basham)

Heroes.

Just the word brings about images of tall, strong, and swoony men emerging into a story with enough testosterone to encourage a primal growl from the purist of prudes. Okay, so some heroes might encourage more of a quiet sigh as their tenderness, touch of tease, and/or quiet strength wrap around your heart like a constant hug…from nice strong arms.

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?

Do you see me jumping up and down right now? Well, I am (and you should probably be glad you in fact can NOT see me as it’s not pretty.)

I am honored to be the final stop on The Thorn Keeper blog tour with Singing Librarian Books. I am excited to talk about this latest book by Pepper Basham. And I cannot WAIT to remind you all why it made my KissingBooks 101 Lesson 2 post.

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!)

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 😉

When I originally reviewed The Thorn Bearer, I was a couple weeks into this whole blog thing & I featured it as a Favorites Friday post. At the time, I said, “I’m sure I will still be thinking about The Thorn Bearer months from now…” Now several months later, I not only am still thinking about it as predicted, but I would also still feature it as a favorite because it’s just that beautiful.

You may remember December 31st as New Year’s Eve.

I remember it with great fondness as “Pepper Day”.

On December 31st, I devoted my blog to my friend, author Pepper Basham, in celebration of her birthday and her upcoming contemporary romance, A Twist of Faith – a modern and Appalachian twist on My Fair Lady.
