September Galleys

There are two big book “seasons” in library world.  The first being spring when all of the light, airy, summer reads are released.  Then there is fall…better known as “award season.”  This is when all the heavy, literary fiction debuts in hopes of making the book award cut off times.  When looking at galleys, though, you’ve probably already heard about the buzzworthy titles (Nutshell, Dollhouse, Wonder, Gentleman in Moscow) which are now circulating in ARC format to the masses.  It makes it hard to come up with a list of “under the radar” titles for you to check out.  But, I’ve given it my best shot.

Top 10 Tuesday: Top American Mafia Non-Fiction

So I pretty much hate having to give a list of “Top Faves” because it changes so regularly.  I think every comment I’ve read about this topic said the same thing, though, so this is how I know I’ve found my people 😀


For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday hosted by Broke and Bookish, I decided to do my Top Five American Mafia Non-fiction.  I’m cheating at only doing five but, really, after these five it all becomes a mush pile anyway (so please don’t tell on me!)

Top 10 Tuesday: Book TV

It’s Top Ten Tuesday, created and hosted by the awesome folks over at Broke and Bookish!  This week we are to list Ten Books in Honor of Fall TV.  I actually hardly ever watch television so I only managed to come up with five (and one is a bit cheatish!) Continue reading “Top 10 Tuesday: Book TV”

August Bookstagram Challenge

In August, I completed my first Bookstagram challenge.  Well, completed is a strong word.  I participated in my first challenge.  I started late and then missed a few days as life got in the way.  It really was a ton of fun and gave me a chance to play around with my cameras (which I haven’t done in ages) and look at my books in a whole new manner.  Have you ever joined in a bookstagram challenge?  If not, you can learn more about them by visiting here

Here are a few of my challenge photos for this month:


Top 10 Tuesday: Back to School

Continue reading “Top 10 Tuesday: Back to School”

Top 10 Tuesday: Dust Bunny books

It’s Top Ten Tuesday, created and hosted by the awesome folks over at Broke and Bookish!  This week we are to list Ten Books That Have Been On Your Shelf (Or TBR) From Before You Started Blogging That You STILL Haven’t Read Yet…which is a super long title  😀

Since I haven’t had this site for very long, I decided to find the oldest books I shelved in my Goodreads account and share those. They date all the way back to 2010.  Since I haven’t read them I can’t tell you much but if the cover entices you, you can click on the book title to be taken to the GR page. Have you read any of them?  Are they still worth reading (or are some really, really bad? Tell me that too if you know!)
