Top Ten Tuesday – Holiday Reads

Today’s Topic: Holiday Reads

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

I love all things Christmas, so you know this book lover also loves a good holiday story. Today I’m sharing some of my favorites novels and novellas that are set during the most wonderful time of the year.

It’s enough to make this girl wanna curl up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa, turn on the twinkle lights on my tree and settle in with tale as warm and cozy as the blanket I sit under. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday – Holiday Reads”

Top Ten Tuesday – Thankful Freebie

Today’s Topic: Thankful Freebie

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

Well, I’m taking this week’s topic literally. My list this week is a free-for-all. I am naming all of the books I love and/or books I’m glad I discovered based on the letters in the word thankful. And since we should never limit our thankfulness, I did not pare down my choices, but named them all.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I hope you find much to be thankful for this week. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday – Thankful Freebie”

Top Ten Tuesday – My Favorite Book Marks

Today’s Topic: Favorite Bookmarks

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

I decided to have some fun interpreting this week’s prompt. This one took quite a bit of research, especially for the characters.

Top Ten Tuesday – Pops of Red

Today’s Topic: Books I’d Give Different Titles To

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

I’ve noticed a trend lately for book covers with pops of red. This always draws my eye in and I find myself wanting to read these books. So today I’m featuring covers not titles. Oops sorry, not sorry.

Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Took a Chance On

Today’s Topic: Books I Enjoyed That Are Outside of My Comfort Zone

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

Hmm…it’s not often that I wander outside of my preferred genres or reading comfort zones. So I tweaked this week’s prompt a bit. Instead I’m sharing books that I took a chance on.

Basically, these are books that I didn’t know much about. Books I chose because I fell in love with the cover or maybe the back blurb caught my interest. Generally, they are by authors I’d never read before or I had not read any reviews about them prior to picking them up.

My choices for this Top Ten are recent reads that I really enjoyed. No sense including those that were a bust, right? Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Took a Chance On”
