Top Ten Tuesday: Book Ideas for Every Reader on Your Gift List

Top Ten Tuesday: Book Ideas for Every Reader on Your Gift List

Posted November 29, 2016 / 32 Comments

A few weeks ago I did a Holiday Gift Guide for bookish-type items that any bookworm would love. Today, for Top Ten Tuesday, I’m going to look at some actual books you can buy for different types of readers who may be on your Christmas list. Or, you know, books […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Books For Which I’m Thankful

Top Ten Tuesday: Books For Which I’m Thankful

Posted November 22, 2016 / 24 Comments

Today, the lovely folks at Top Ten Tuesday have given us free rein within a Thanksgiving theme, so I’m taking advantage of another freebie week to talk about books for which I’m thankful. These books range from nonfiction to fiction, current to less than current, but they all have something […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Bookish Movies

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Bookish Movies

Posted November 15, 2016 / 34 Comments

Today, the folks at The Broke & The Bookish have given us the theme of “Movie Freebie” for our Top Ten Tuesday posts. I must confess that when I saw the theme at first I felt like this Snoopy sticker: I mean… c’mon. I’m a book blog. Not a general […]


Top Ten Tuesday: More Tales From The TBR Pile (Planet)

Top Ten Tuesday: More Tales From The TBR Pile (Planet)

Posted November 8, 2016 / 54 Comments

My TBR list is no longer a list. It’s no longer even a pile. Nor an island. Nor a continent. It has recently been upgraded to a planet and I don’t know what I’ll call it if it gets any larger 😀 According to Goodreads there are 2,459 books I […]



Top Ten Tuesday: My Favorite Mystery/Suspense Series

Top Ten Tuesday: My Favorite Mystery/Suspense Series

Posted October 25, 2016 / 58 Comments

It’s Halloween Freebie week on Top Ten Tuesday! I’m not into vampires or werewolves (except Remus Lupin of course). I do like ghost stories but they have to be done right. I’ve only read two horror-type novels in my life – and liked them both – but they were really […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Because I Said So

Top Ten Tuesday: Because I Said So

Posted October 11, 2016 / 67 Comments

Hello friends! This week’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is yet another one that caused me some consternation for a while.  We’re supposed to be talking about books we’ve read because someone recommended them to us. But… see… these days I pretty much only read books that people have asked […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Villains Who Kept Me Guessing

Top Ten Tuesday: Villains Who Kept Me Guessing

Posted October 4, 2016 / 27 Comments

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is “All About Villains” and to be honest I struggled with a topic idea for this one. I don’t have a plethora of favorite villains. In fact, I can’t think of any off the top of my head… unless they end up NOT being […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Fallish Reads

Top Ten Tuesday: Fallish Reads

Posted September 27, 2016 / 36 Comments

Even though it is decidedly NOT fallish around here yet (insert grumpy face), the linkup-wide theme for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is our Fall TBR lists. Except I already kinda did that (click on the “most anticipated fall/winter 2016” graphic in the sidebar) sooooooo I decided instead to go […]


Top Ten Tuesday: All About Audiobooks

Top Ten Tuesday: All About Audiobooks

Posted September 20, 2016 / 73 Comments

Welcome to another edition of “Top Ten Tuesday”, a weekly blog linkup spearheaded by the lovely folks at The Broke & The Bookish. This week is an “all about audio” freebie, but because I’m not a huge fan of audiobooks I’m sticking to the basics. In other words, I’m going […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Tell Me Again (or… My Favorite Retellings)

Top Ten Tuesday: Tell Me Again (or… My Favorite Retellings)

Posted September 13, 2016 / 68 Comments

This week on Top Ten Tuesday, we are asked to give our Top Ten ALL TIME FAVORITE books of _____ genre.  Ok…so… my head exploded when I first read that topic and I went into what is commonly known as the book blogger fetal position. This occurs whenever someone asks […]

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: 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: 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: Cover Love

Posted August 9, 2016 / 56 Comments

This week on Top Ten Tuesday, the powers that be over at The Broke & The Bookish encouraged us to go back and do one of their suggested topics that we missed the first time around. The one that jumped out at me was “Favorite Covers” as I really do […]

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 […]
