Top Ten Tuesday – Characters I’d Follow on Social Media

Today’s Topic: Characters I’d Follow On Social Media

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

Following people on social media is a bit like window-peeping. It gives you brief glances at the lives of others, so that you feel like you know them a little bit, without actually giving the full picture. Call me a Peeping Tom, but as someone who is always curious about people, I can’t help but find it rather entertaining. Here are a few book characters whose social media feeds would keep me intrigued. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday – Characters I’d Follow on Social Media”

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl:

Originally, I didn’t think I had ever experienced a book hangover. But when I began looking at my book list, I realized that there were many books that left me emotionally bereft in more ways than one when I had finished them.

When a story gives me all the feels that stick with me long after I’ve read it, that is what I know I have a book hangover. And I wouldn’t have figured that out without this week’s prompt.

This week I’ve divided my entries into single titles and series. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday – Books that Gave Me a Hangover”

Top Ten Tuesday – Books On My TBR I Predict Will Be 5-Star Reads

Today’s Topic: Books On My TBR I Predict Will Be 5-Star Reads

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

I realized when I was making this week’s list that there is a common thread among my choices. Every single title was chosen because I know and trust the author having been impressed with their previous releases.  It is each author’s skill to pen an engrossing, addicting tale that leads me to believe every one of these will be five star reads.

Top Ten Tuesday – Christmas Bookish Wish List

Today’s Topic: Books I Hope to Find Under My Tree

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

One year for Christmas my mom gave me some jewelry. She wanted me to have some nice pieces that I could wear for years. As grateful as I was, I guess something on my face made her ask, “You would have rather received books for Christmas, wouldn’t you?” To which I guiltily answered, “Yes.”

Every year, my Christmas wish list includes a whole lot of books. Sometimes I get around to buying these books for myself, particularly when they go on sale for Kindle. This year, I’ve requested several non-fiction titles in hardback, since those tend to be a bigger investment. Also, since classic film is my other obsession, these non-fiction titles provide the marriage of two of my favorite things. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday – Christmas Bookish Wish List”
