This week’s Top Ten is Bookish Characters (these could be readers, writers, authors, librarians, professors, etc.) I recognize that my inclusion of Caroline Merit is a little off the mark, since she is a vampire, and Sentinel of her Vampire House. But, she was a grad student when she was turned, and to this day,… Continue reading TTT: Bookish Professions

TTT: One-Word Reviews
This week’s topic comes to us from Susan @ Bloggin’ ’bout Books: May 3: One-Word Reviews for the Last Ten Books I Read OK, before I start, one disclaimer. I have been reading a ton of Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine in the last month, and their stock-in-trade is these thousand-page stories that they break… Continue reading TTT: One-Word Reviews
TTT: Bookish Wishlist
This was super-hard…because there were so many other things I wanted to include! I could have probably done a list from t-shirts alone. Also, I walked away with probably five tattoo ideas, which seriously complicates my life! But anyway…here they are. My carefully-curated list of bookish things I want. Future birthday present shoppers, take notes!
TTT: Authors I Haven’t Read (Yet!)
Boy, I needed an easy list this week, and this one was perfect. All of these books are on my current (ie, 2022) TBR, and I have read nothing by any of these authors previously. Pretty excited about all of them. How about you? Any new authors on your TBR?
TTT: My favorite mystery series
This week was a freebie, and since I have been reading and reviewing and talking about very little aside from romances for a fair amount of time, I thought I would throw it back to my first love, a good mystery. I would love some recs, actually. This space is full of psychological thrillers these… Continue reading TTT: My favorite mystery series
TTT: My favorite books of the last ten years
This week’s topic was supposed to be “21st Century Books That You Think Will Become Classics…” but I don’t really read the sort of books that are likely to be considered classics. I mean, I guess that SOME of these might be, so I guess this pivot isn’t THAT far off-the path. But I really… Continue reading TTT: My favorite books of the last ten years
TTT: Books with adjectives in the titles
This week, Nicole @ How to Train a Book Dragon wants us to share Books With an Adjective In the Title. This week’s list lead me through some mental gymnastics of the “I know that knitting is not an adjective, but I am pretty sure that it’s being used as one here and I’m also… Continue reading TTT: Books with adjectives in the titles
TTT: Spring TBR
This week’s topic, Books on my Spring TBR, took almost no thought, as I have so many #ARCs that I need to read! So, I was happy for an easy week, and for a list that I have a prayer of completing! So. Here they are…eight #ARCs and a couple that look really fun!
TTT: Favorite Tropes
I have fallen in love with Romance as a genre in the last couple of years. I know I am not alone, as romance sales have soared since the first lockdown—I think it’s the adrenaline of all those happy ever after. As for tropes, I like a good fake-dater, or an enemies-to-lovers, or a forbidden… Continue reading TTT: Favorite Tropes
TTT: Books I’ve been quiet about
This week’s topic is— Books I Enjoyed, but Have Never Mentioned On My Blog I think that I had it easier this week than a lot of people, since I have only been blogging for six months! I went through my Goodreads list, sorted top to bottom by my rating, and just grabbed things that… Continue reading TTT: Books I’ve been quiet about
