Books I’ve read recently that made me feel good

Books I’ve read recently that made me feel good

February 6, 2018 2018, Tell Me Something Tuesday 8

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where a range of topics from books to blogging are discussed. This week’s topic: Some light, fluffy feel good books I’ve read lately. I don’t really read many light, fluffy feel good books. Not because my books are serious, weighty books dealing with “serious” topics. These are the books which made me feel good about reading…happy that I chose that book to read. I’ve read these books within the last six months or so. Lots going on in the world that makes this the perfect time to read light, fluffy feel good books. Starman Jones by Robert Heinlein Starman Jones… Read more »

December 15, 2015 2015, Top Ten Tuesday 6

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme I take part in when I can think up answers! It’s a great meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog. Every week they suggest a new book-related topic. It’s not only fun to think about my list, but to read what other people come up with! This week I’m talking about my favorite books of 2015. It was difficult to choose just 10 so i have a number of  honorable mention books, too! Here they are and in no particular order (and all the links are to my reviews of the books): Science Fiction Ready Player One by Ernest Cline I… Read more »

Each month I write about the books I’ve noticed and think might be good. Sometimes they’re from favorite authors and sometimes new author strikes my fancy. 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. I’m trying to limit the new books I buy each month to the ones I’m going to read soon. But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of these books. And I hope people reading my post may find some new books, too! I also hope they will point me… Read more »
