Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Recommend the Most

Posted May 9, 2023 / 25 Comments

Happy Tuesday! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is all about the books I recommend the most. As I was trying desperately to narrow this down, I realized that I tend to recommend by author more than I do by specific book. Because, generally, if I love one book by […]

Happy Tuesday! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is “The First 10 Books I Randomly Grabbed from My Shelf”. Always good to have a little shelf awareness, right? I knew I couldn’t be random, though – I would overthink it for sure – so I enlisted my husband to grab […]

Posted March 13, 2023 / 15 Comments

Happy Tuesday! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is books on our Spring 2023 TBR lists but since I’ve already talked about that in a broad overview, I’m going to narrow it down to a specific type of book releasing in Spring 2023. As the self-proclaimed ‘cool aunt’ of several […]

Posted January 30, 2023 / 14 Comments

Happy Tuesday! Today is a freebie for Top Ten Tuesday, so I decided to see what books on my TBR list have titles that begin with the classic ‘Once Upon A Time’. Only, instead of ‘time’ these titles have substituted a multitude of word possibilities. Nothing makes me settle into […]
