Can’t Wait Wednesday: A Reckoning in the Back Country by Terry Shames

Can’t Wait Wednesday: A Reckoning in the Back Country by Terry Shames

November 1, 2017 2017, Can't Wait Wednesday 16

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. I love finding out about books which will publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog. I’m excited to read . . .

Autumn book covers

Autumn book covers

October 10, 2017 2017, Top Ten Tuesday 6

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted at the Broke and the Bookish blog. Each week a different topic is introduced and it is fun to see what everyone writes. Check out their blog for more information. This week I’m showing books with Autumn covers and colors and even a few that take place during Autumn! For me the colors of the covers are what says “Autumn”  . . . the oranges and browns. Of course, trees with colored leaves, pumpkins, golden grasses all help me think of Autumn–one of my favorite times of the year. The Watership Down cover above is the cover I think of (and love) when I think… Read more »
