Hi friends! Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! The topic for this week (courtesy of The Broke & The Bookish) is technically supposed to be the books on our winter TBR. (Ok, not technically. That’s totally what it is) But y’all… that would take about 20 posts worth of books so… […]

Happy Almost-Thanksgiving to my USA readers 🙂  This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is about the books we are thankful for. Since I did that topic last year, I decided to ask some of my fellow bloggers which books they are thankful for, instead! I had such fun reading their […]

Top Ten Tuesday: One Word Wonders

Posted October 24, 2017 / 31 Comments

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme from The Broke & The Bookish is “unique book titles”.  The first thing I thought of was cozy mysteries but I’ve just done a post about them so instead I opted to feature books with one-word titles. I know there are many I could choose […]

Top Ten Tuesday: These Cozy Mysteries Are Making Me Hungry!

Posted October 17, 2017 / 8 Comments

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic (say that five times fast lol) is all about food and books. My first thought was, of course, cozy mysteries. There are several cute series that revolve around food and often the books include recipes in the back. Total drool fest as I’m reading… sometimes […]

Happy Tuesday! Today’s topic from the gals at The Broke & The Bookish is about books that feature characters of some sort of type of our choosing. I debated a few ideas but finally settled on characters from Appalachia, an area that’s close to my heart – and my roots. […]

Happy Tuesday!! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is all about our Fall TBR lists. Mine is out of control … it would take a whole week’s worth of posts to even cover a fraction of the new releases I want to read this fall. Oh wait. I did that already […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Hidden Gems in Contemporary Romance

Posted August 29, 2017 / 36 Comments

Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday! This week, we’re looking at hidden gems, books that maybe fly under the radar, in a genre of our choice. I’m choosing to spotlight contemporary romance and I’m focusing on some books I loved that still have fewer than 50 ratings on Amazon. Clicking […]



Top Ten Tuesday: Recommended Time-Slip Novels

Top Ten Tuesday: Recommended Time-Slip Novels

Posted August 15, 2017 / 50 Comments

Time-slip novels are quickly becoming one of my fave sub-genres in fiction. They blend contemporary with historical and usually have a little bit of mystery thrown in. Best of all worlds, right there! These dual timeline novels are not time-travel books, but rather stories whose perspective slips back and forth […]
