August books on my radar . . .

August 1, 2015 2015, Books on my radar 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 »

Characters who love books

Characters who love books

July 28, 2015 2015, Top Ten Tuesday 8

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 a new topic is presented. It’s not only fun to think about my list, but to read what other people come up with! This week–characters who love books–love reading, are writers, work at a bookstore, etc. I’ve read all these books at one time or another except for the last two. I own Guidebook to Murder, but haven’t read it and Booked to Die is a book I’d like to read. The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley–Carrie McClelland is… Read more »

It’s not only fun to think about my list, but to read what other people come up with! This week I’m listing books which celebrate various kinds of diversity. I’ve noted the type of diversity found in each book. Most of the books I’ve listed I’ve read. Those I haven’t read I own and hope to read one of these days. I’ve added 11 books–the last one a memoir–Notes of a Native Son by… Read more »

  Each month I write about the books I’ve noticed and think might be good. Sometimes they’re from favorite authors and other times by a new author.
