Top Ten Tuesday: A Few of My Favorite Picture Books

Top Ten Tuesday: A Few of My Favorite Picture Books

Posted January 31, 2017 / 46 Comments

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about the visual, so I decided to talk about a few of my favorite picture books! These range from newer to more classic, but they are all in my arsenal of go-to reads for the nieces and nephews. In fact, I asked my […]


Top Ten Tuesday: My Favorite Book Boyfriends of 2016

Top Ten Tuesday: My Favorite Book Boyfriends of 2016

Posted January 24, 2017 / 55 Comments

This week is a freebie week on Top Ten Tuesday and I decided to put together a list of my favorite book boyfriends of 2016 (as the title of this post would suggest). And… let’s just go ahead and get this out of the way right now … there’s way […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Hidden/Underrated Bookish Gems of 2016

Top Ten Tuesday: Hidden/Underrated Bookish Gems of 2016

Posted January 17, 2017 / 27 Comments

Happy Tuesday, folks! Today’s topic, courtesy of The Broke & The Bookish, is reserved for those hidden or underrated gems among the books we read in 2016. And guess what? I’m not changing or tweaking the topic this week! LOL. I am, however, defining “underrated” as not having enough ratings […]

Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday! In leading up to Christmas, we’ve talked about bookish gift ideas as well as actual books for every reader on your gift list. Today, I’m going to look at 10 books that I would personally enjoy finding under my tree. Perhaps not […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Contemporary Romance Authors New to Me in 2016

Posted December 6, 2016 / 50 Comments

  Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday, inspired by the folks at The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s suggested topic is “Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016”. But as usual I’m tweaking it a bit and narrowing the scope to “Contemporary Romance […]

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? […]
