Top Ten Tuesday – Colorful Book Covers

Today’s Topic: Colorful Book Covers

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

I am a huge fan of color in my everyday life. It makes me so happy. My closet looks like a rainbow, my home has pops of it everywhere, and spring is my favorite season partially because it means the return of nature’s color. So obviously, I notice and appreciate the same in book covers. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday – Colorful Book Covers”

Top Ten Tuesday – Book Titles That Sound Like They Could Be Crayola Crayon Colors

Today’s Topic:  Book Titles That Sound Like They Could Be Crayola Crayon Colors (Take a moment and Google some of the crazy Crayola crayon colors that exist. Can you think of any book titles that sound like they could also be a crayon color? It might be fun to include a description of the kind of color you’re picturing.)

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

This was a really fun and creative topic. I originally thought it would be more difficult to find book titles that sound like colors, but it turned out to be fairly easyl. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday – Book Titles That Sound Like They Could Be Crayola Crayon Colors”

Top Ten Tuesday – Classics I’ve Read and Liked

Today’s Topic: Books Written Before I Was Born (These can be books you’ve read or want to read!)

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

Let’s be honest, how many of us read books written before we were born, other than classics? I know I don’t.  And aside from the required reading in high school and university, I hadn’t even read that many classics until recent years.  I’ve written of my prejudice against the classics before, but I am working to change that. Here are a few that I’ve read (mostly recently) and enjoyed. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday – Classics I’ve Read and Liked”

Top Ten Tuesday – Authors I Discovered in 2020

Top Ten Tuesday: New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2020 (If you didn’t read 10 new authors, that’s fine! Just do what you can.)

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

As I mentioned in my book wrap-up for last year, I explored more new authors than ever in 2020. In fact, over half of the books I read were by authors who were new to me. And for the most part, I liked them all. Here are just a few. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday – Authors I Discovered in 2020”

Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t

Today’s Topic: Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To (You could take this opportunity to tell us what’s left on your seasonal TBRs from last year. Or books you were super excited about and then you didn’t get to them.)

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

Like most readers, my TBR list is out of control. With each new year and it’s new releases, I add to it with books I’m excited about. But of course, I don’t have enough time to read every new addition despite the best of intentions. So this list falls short of ALL the books I meant to read last year. It only names the top priority books I failed to find time for. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t”
