A delicious story that I devoured in just a few sittings.

Get a Life, Chloe Brown is full of spunky personality: witty sarcastic banter freely flowing.

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Chloe and Red. Did I say LOVE?! 😉

Author Talia Hibbert is a brilliant writer; her characters were relatable and adoringly lovable. She tackled sensitive issues with finesse and I learned so much through both Chloe and Red.Read More »

Author Jenny Han is brilliant! She delivered a story reminiscent of Pretty in Pink. She’s the modern day John Hughes.

What a delight: a great read/listen for all ages. It made me want to relive my high school days and that is no small feat. Who wants to be a teenager again? Certainly not me; no way, no how. I don’t even want to remember the teenager I was – I like myself much more now – BUT, this book brought me back to that time and I can feel the butterflies in my stomach for youthful crushes as if it were yesterday. I found myself thinking who my fifteen year-old self would write letters to, and what I would have said. It would probably look a little like this: Read More »

Talk to Me Tuesday: the TBR list

How do you select the order of your TBR (to-be-read) list?

I go into each month selecting the books I want to read and the order in which I read them just comes as I complete the first one – as if I am winging it but still organized enough to know which books I will read. All I know is each month I read:

  1. My monthly book club selection
  2. My Book of the Month Club subscription selection
  3. One NetGalley arc
  4. One Audiobook
  5.  through 8. (trying for 8 – 9 books per month) are somewhat random and picked based on other bloggers reviews and trending Goodreads reviews

If I want to hit my goal of 100 books this year, I figured I need to pad my TBR list early so I am not stalling and can pick my next read pretty quickly.

How do you organize your reading selections? What are the next 3 reads on your list?…asking for a friend’s TBR list 😉
