2018 Reading Challenges

2018 Reading Challenges

February 16, 2018 2018, Cloak & Dagger Mystery Reading Challenge, Discussion Challenge, Goodreads, Popsugar Reading Challenge, Reading Challenges, Swords and Stars Reading Challenge 6

Goodreads Reading Challenge I’m participating in the Goodreads challenge again this year. Last year my goal was to read 100 books and I read exactly that! This year I decreased my goal to 90 books. I feel like I have lots more going on in 2018 and I want to read books because I love reading not to meet a challenge. (However, if I read more than 90 books I will be very happy!) Other challenges I’ve decided to participate in a few other challenges this year. Last year I didn’t take part in any reading challenges so I’m ready this year to jump in. It’s always fun and I… Read more »

Can’t Wait Wednesday: The Privilege of Peace by Tanya Huff

Can’t Wait Wednesday: The Privilege of Peace by Tanya Huff

February 14, 2018 2018, Can't Wait Wednesday 8

  Can’t-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. I love finding out about books which will publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog. I’m excited to read . . .

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.

Books I hope to read this winter

Books I hope to read this winter

November 7, 2017 2017, Tell Me Something Tuesday 4

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where a wide range of topics from books to blogging are discussed. This week we’re talking about the books we want to read this Winter. All but one of these books are books on my TBR list that are already published. Most of them I already own. A few I will borrow from the library. Updated to add: Winter means December through February to me. Spring is March through May, Summer–June through August–etc. I say this because I didn’t include the books from March (by Briggs and Bishop) which I would include in a list of books I want to… Read more »

November 2017 books on my list

November 2017 books on my list

November 3, 2017 2017, books on my list . . . 4

I keep a list of all the books I might want to read and add to it as the year goes on. As each month comes along I create a list on my blog for others and for me to keep track of asthe months go by. I don’t buy all these books–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. I hope people reading my post may find some new books to read. I also hope these people will point me toward books I missed. November 1 A Long Way Down by Ken… Read more »

Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Head On by John Scalzi

September 20, 2017 2017, Can't Wait Wednesday 16

I used to take part in Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. I’ve decided to begin participating again, but with Can’t-Wait Wednesday hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings since the Breaking the Spine blog is no longer active. Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. I love finding out about books which will publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books.

Books I want to read during Fall 2017

Books I want to read during Fall 2017

September 5, 2017 2017, Tell Me Something Tuesday 17

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where a wide range of topics from books to blogging are discussed. I’ve decided to try some new memes this fall. I plan to write posts for this discussion meme when I have time and something to say! My books are a mix of books being published this fall and books from my TBR piles–sometimes because a new book in the series is coming out this fall! One trend I notice: lots of good books are coming in October! Girl Waits with Gun  by Amy Stewart Kopp Sisters #1 Historical Mystery I have had the first book… Read more »
