I need to read more than one book from these authors . . .

September 16, 2014 2014, Top Ten Tuesday 15

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme which I take part in occasionally. 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!   I’ve only read one book from these authors, but I really need to read more of their books (in no particular order & links are to Goodreads): 1. Kate Elliott–I read Cold Magic and loved it. Ms. Elliott has written quite a few books and I own at least one more by her. 2. Susanna Kearsley–I listened to The… Read more »

September 1, 2014 2014, 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 other times I get excited by some new author I might try. 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 sometimes these new books have high prices 🙁 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! September 2  I’m very excited about this book. I love the… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme which I take part in occasionally. It’s a great meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog. Every week a new topic is presented.

Most are books I’ve bought already, Most are books from authors I haven’t read yet and Most are recommendations from blogs I regularly read because we read a lot of the same kinds of books. 1. The Magicians series by Lev Grossman—Mogsy from Bibliosanctum wrote a review of the third… Read more »
