Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Characters

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Characters

It’s another week again and here’s my newest top 10!  Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by The Broke & Bookish.  Here’s my top 10 in no particular order. I decided to divide them between my childhood faves and adult faves. Without these childhood faves, I’m sure I would never have been seduced into the wonderful world of reading. Ronald Weasley (Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling) Who doesn’t love Harry’s sidekick?  This carrot top is way better than Harry ever was.  Well, IMHO anyway.  Harry is okay but Ron is the one that really captured my interest.  I love how […]

February Book DNRs

February Book DNRs

There are times when the books you pick end up as a DNR  (Do Not Resuscitate, yes because I am a nurse, so I have to call it that).  At the first of the month, I had high hopes with my book choices.  In fact, I signed up for a mini challenge hoping to get through my TBR pile in a breeze.  For the most part, I had hoped that by mid month, I would be at least halfway done.  But no.  I just couldn’t get past finishing my choices.  Maybe I was being ambitious.  But I thought picking 5 books […]

Waiting on Wednesday #1

Waiting on Wednesday #1

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. My pick this week is a re-issue by one of my favorite authors, Sabrina Jeffries!   I can’t wait to read this! I haven’t read the first issue of this book yet, too!

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Romances

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Romances

This is my first entry for Top 10 Tuesday and this is a topic most dear to my heart since I heart romances.  I picked a favorite book from 10 of my favorite authors.  Although this does not exhaust my list (as there are many that are a 5 star for me), these are books that I have read at least 5 times and I still shed a few tears every time I read them.  The following are my top 10 in no particular order.     Lions & Lace by Meagan McKinney Lions & Lace is perhaps one of […]

Sunday Thoughts and Whatnot

Sunday Thoughts and Whatnot

So, I’ve been pretty lazy these days.  It’s practically mid-month with the 14th looming in the horizon and I have barely finished The Importance of Being Wicked.  Okay, blame it on the fact that I have been exhausted from work and the Boss (hubby) and I have been gallivanting to god knows where.  I know, excuses smexcuses but that’s that. One good thing that came out within the last couple of weeks was the fact that I recently rediscovered the public library system!  For the last couple of years, I have let my library card gather dust so I finally […]

Big Brother is Watching

Big Brother is Watching

No.  I am not talking about the reality show Big Brother.  I am talking about the awesome book 1984 by George Orwell!  This is my first foray into audiobook “reading” and I must say that I am hooked!  I am 2 chapters deep into this awesome book and I am loving it!  So yeah, noob here but hey, I expected not to like listening to an audiobook!  Plus, it helps pass time while stuck in traffic!  And LA traffic is the worst at around 5-ish in the PM. Here’s my favorite line so far: “He who controls the past controls […]

Monthly Mini: TBR February

Monthly Mini: TBR February

It’s February and it’s the month where two hearts beat as one.  Okay, so that sounded so corny but hey, you are allowed to be corny during Valentine’s Day right? Right. Anywho, what better way to start the month with a mini challenge.  This month, I will be reading and reviewing four books on my TBR shelf.  Of course, all of them are romance themed so it does work into the season.   Well, what are you guys planning to read this month?
