Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Read in One Sitting

Today’s Topic : Books I Read In One Sitting (or would have if I had the time)

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

This week’s list could also be named, “Books I Couldn’t Put Down” since most of these I was not able to read in one sitting. Although there are a few that I managed to read in one sitting, mainly because they are under 300 pages. The rest just managed to captivate my attention.

Top Ten Tuesday – Book Titles that Are Complete Sentences

Today’s Topic: Book Titles That Are Complete Sentences

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

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.

So obviously, I notice and appreciate the same in book covers. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday – Colorful Book Covers”
