Some Christmas-y Books

I’m doing my own theme for Top Ten Tuesday this week, Christmas-themed stories. With the Ho Ho Ho Read-a-Thon beginning in two days, I thought I’d give folks some suggestions in case you’d like to participate but haven’t put together a list. It’s a five-day event, so you don’t need too many. I don’t usually read holiday themed books for any holiday, but last Christmas I was very Scrooge-ish, so I thought something early might get […]

Sophomore Anticipation

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is Debuts Authors That Left Me Wanting More. Very interesting that they are all women authors and half are historical fiction. Not that I didn’t read male authors or other genres, but this really shows my true favorites, I guess Only two are from the library, the rest are ARCs. I think I’m more apt to take a chance on an ARC, but when I go to the library I […]

If You Like/Then Try

If you like: Linda Barnes’ Carlotta Carlyle mysteries set in Boston, then try the Jane Ryland mysteries by Hank Phillippi Ryan, also set in the historic city. The Other […]

Most Read Authors

This week’s Tp Ten Tuesday theme is Authors From Whom I’ve Read the Most Books.  This is another challenging topic for me. I read a lot of series but does that mean I really like the author’s style and use of language or that particular main character and series? I went through my Goodreads list and found 30 authors where I’ve read five or more books, so then I started whittling it down. If I’ve only […]

Bookishly Nerdy Characters

Bookishly Nerdy Characters

This week’s Tp Ten Tuesday theme is Bookishly Nerdy Characters. There are all kinds of nerds, freaks, and geeks in the world, but in this case they are bookishly inclined, not passionately crazy about band, art or neutrons. They may like those things too, but reading and the use of words is their true passion. All links connect to Goodreads. Milo, nerdy middle schooler from Greenglass House by Kate Milford Alice overwhelmed mom and book […]
