December books on my list

December 1, 2016 2016, books on my list . . . 7

I don’t have too many books on my list this month. That’s good! Each month I list the books I think I would like to read. I don’t buy all the books (not during the month they’re released at least)–since I already have way too many books to read and some of the new books are expensive. I’m trying to stick to a budget…lol. The list I make each month helps me remember the books. And I hope people reading my post may find some new books, too! I also hope they will point me toward books I missed. December 1 Denny’s Law by Elizabeth Gunn Series: Sarah Burke Published… Read more »

Holiday Picture Book Gift Guide

Holiday Picture Book Gift Guide

November 29, 2016 2016, 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 each week. Check out their blog for more information. This week I’m talking about Christmas and winter books which would make great gifts for a young child. With one exception these are all books our children enjoyed reading when they were little. ……………………. The book on the left (which is the version we have which I read to my children) is out-of-print and there is no photo on Goodreads so I’ve linked to Amazon. The book to the right by… Read more »

This is a great meme to take part in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it!

I also like to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading. Home and Blog I’ve been absent from my blog for awhile. I had too many things going on and just couldn’t concentrate on my blog much for a few weeks. I’m hoping to do more blogging and also catch up on what… Read more »

Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon Update

Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon Update

November 12, 2016 2016, Read-a-Thons 2

This week I’m participating in the Ho-Ho-H0 Readathon (from Nov 9 – 15). It’s hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and is so much fun. I finished my first book! The Magic of Christmas by Sarah Morgan I enjoyed The Magic of Christmas. It’s a Harlequin Medical Romance which is the Harlequin line I like the most. Sarah Morgan is also one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. I like the medical aspects of the book (in a London Emergency Department). I also really like the Christmas aspects of the book and the two young girls in the book–Dr. Christian Blake’s daughters. He’s a handsome doctor in the ED… Read more »

November books on my list

November books on my list

November 4, 2016 2016, books on my list . . . 2

These are the November books on my list. Each month I keep a list of books that interest me based on the author, synopsis, genre or sometimes just the cover! My favorite genres: Mysteries–especially police procedurals; Science Fiction–especially military science fiction and space opera; Fantasy–especially urban fantasy. I don’t buy all these books since I already have lots of books to read and I feel lucky if I get 10 books read each month. But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of the books. I hope people reading my post may find some new books to interest them… Read more »
