Police procedurals I’ve recently added to my TBR pile

Police procedurals I’ve recently added to my TBR pile

June 6, 2017 2017, Top Ten Tuesday 13

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 the police procedurals I’ve recently added to my TBR pile. Most of these are from authors I haven’t read before. With a few I’ve read one or two books in the series. I’m always on the lookout for new police procedurals so I’ve been happy to find these to try in the last month or so. Mike Bowditch is a game warden, but I’m counting him… Read more »

Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon Goals

Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon Goals

November 8, 2016 2016, holidays, Read-a-Thons 2

I enjoy participating in the Ho-Ho-H0 Readathon every year. It’s hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and is so much fun. Besides reading or listening to books there are challenges to participate in as well as a twitter party (on Nov 15). And we can twitter our progress at #HoHoHoRAT. Goals for Readathon Read three Christmas/winter themed books I hope I can take part in at least one challenge. I want to tweet my progress during the week and participate in the twitter party.

2016 Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge

2016 Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge

January 6, 2016 2016, Reading Challenges 1

This reading challenge is hosted by Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! and Barb @ Booker T’s Farm 2016 Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge I kind of participated in this challenge last year–meaning that I signed up for it and continued to list mysteries I read throughout the year, but I didn’t link any of mysteries after the first month or so. And when the challenge was abandoned by the blogger who hosted it last year I didn’t switch the challenge over to Stormi’s blog. (Sorry about that, Stormi. I meant to, but didn’t get it done.) Goal Anyway, I did read quite a few mysteries last year–28 mysteries… Read more »

2016 most anticipated new-to-me authors and their books

December 29, 2015 2015, 2016, Top Ten Tuesday 11

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 the books I’m most anticipating in the first half of 2016. I’ve decided to just list the new-to-me authors and their books since I have so many new authors and their books I want to read!

November books on my list

November books on my list

November 5, 2015 2015, books on my list . . . 8

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 »

Halloween cozy mysteries

Halloween cozy mysteries

October 27, 2015 2015, Top Ten Tuesday 8

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 we have a Halloween themed freebie. I’ve chosen to spotlight Halloween themed cozy mysteries. I’ve only read one of these books since I don’t read too many cozy mysteries. When I read Trick or Treat Murder it made me wonder how many other mysteries are Halloween themed. I was surprised to find out how many there are! Another reason I chose cozy mysteries is that I don’t like scary… Read more »
