Stacking the Shelves – 2/4/23

Happy Saturday everyone! Have any fun plans for the weekend? Today I’m going on another birding trip. I’m excited about this trip for three reasons: 1)I’ll get to see my oldest and birding friends I’ve been making in our state 2)Birds – I expect to record some new species I haven’t see before 3)I get to explore an area of Louisiana that I haven’t been to before. So, I expect it’ll be a fun adventure.

Stacking The Shelves is hosted at Reading Reality and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

First Lines Fridays 2/3/23

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page.
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet — you need to hook the reader first.
  • Finally… reveal the book!

11 Groundhog Day/Time Loop Books

Happy Groundhog Day! I read a stat this morning that said the groundhog’s accuracy was only 40% over the last decade, but I never put any stock into whether he saw his shadow or not anyways. But in the spirit of the Groundhog Day movie, I do enjoy a good time loop book, but I haven’t read many of them. So, I’m going to share 3 that I have read and enjoyed, and then a list of ones that I’d like to get to.

Topplin’ TBR Thursday 2/2/23

I love being able to draw attention to other book lovers out there that are encouraging me to pick up books, and that’s what this weekly meme will be all about. This is a thank you for adding to my toppling TBR pile. So, each week I’ll be sharing books that I added to my TBR along with the blogger, Bookstagrammer, BookTuber, etc. that convinced me to add it. They might not have even necessarily enjoyed it, but they shared it, and it grabbed my attention.

Top Ten Tuesday ~ Epistolary Romances I Enjoyed

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy Tuesday, my bookish peeps! Today’s topic is a freebie, so I decided to share 10 epistolary romances that I enjoyed since I absolutely adore epistolary stories. Not sure what an epistolary novel is? It’s one that includes letters, emails, or texts as a major form of communication.

#IMWAYR ~ 1/30/23

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a good weekend! We had a great time Saturday with friends and our first book club of the year. Other noteworthy things happening around here – flooding. There’s lots of flooding around us right now. We have some neighbors (we use that term loosely out here in the country) that are completely flooded out. We’re not in any danger with that at the moment, but there are a few places that the flood waters are almost over the road that we have to travel to be able to leave our house, and it’s not supposed to stop raining until Friday. Today’s the lowest percentage of rain at 72%.
