Books That Give Off Autumn Vibes

This is a fun topic and so very easy to fill in! I know of one author in particular whose covers just scream fall and cozy. 
The colors of fall are just wonderful and I love this topic because it brings all the happy colors to one place.

Waiting On Wednesday: The Gilded Lady

October 30, 2019

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature that spotlights an up-and-coming release you are most excited about.

I recently read Elizabeth Camden's newest release, The Spice King, you can follow the link to the review. I loved it! It was a story I couldn't wait to continue. The fact that it is a the start of a trilogy, really is a delight! The cover for book two of the Hope and Glory series was recently shared, and it is gorgeous! I can't wait to continue reading about this interesting family. There is still so much left to discover and where this story will go. And seeing it through the eyes of the only sister of the family should offer a very different insight.
I know this book still has a little way to go with it's release, but I'm so excited for this book. 

Waiting On:

Top Ten Tuesday: Halloween Freebie

October 29, 2019

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Artsy Read Girl.
Each week features a book related topic to spotlight your Top Ten.

Topic:
Halloween Reads

This is a fun theme!
I'm not a big fan of Halloween, except for candy and dressing up. 
So, I'm a wuss. I won't watch horror movies, so I won't read horror reads, but with my background in criminal justice, I love a good suspense/mystery read. It's right up my alley. I love to try to solve a puzzle in a story. 

Listed below will be a wide assortment of books that range from suspense, mystery, all the way to Gothic, and then supernatural YA. 

All of these books are fun and have some mystery behind them and feel like they are the perfect Halloween read.

Welcome to a new week! It is crazy to think that we are in the downward spiral of the year. This is the last week of October! My kiddo so happily pointed out that we are 2 months away from Christmas. Thank you child....But, with her getting older, she is getting easier to shop for, and she loves to read!

This was a good week for reading. I finished some books, and got some new books in to read.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On Books

October 22, 2019

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Artsy Read Girl.
Each week features a book related topic to spotlight your Top Ten.

Topic:
Books on Books

I changed up the topic a little bit for today. I wasn't feeling the original topic. 
Then it hit me, I haven't seen a topic focus on books that have books on the cover. I thought of 5 right off of the top of my head and decided to see if I could come up with 10....I made it to 12.

So, without further ado, Books on Books.
