Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Things

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Things #ttt #books

cafc6-toptentuesday

I really like this week’s topic – bookish things (not books) that you want.  I would go so far as to say I NEED these things in my life, though who knows if I’ll actually acquire them all.

1.  Book quote scarf:  This one features Anne of Green Gables, but the Storiarts store on Etsy has a ton of other items from beloved classics.  I would wear this time every day!

2.  HP T-shirt:  Etsy has…

Breaking Up With Authors

Breaking Up With Authors #amreading #blogging

In the last few weeks, I’ve had a lot of books that I felt just lukewarm about or that I put down for any number of reasons.  Like most readers, I really want to connect with the material, feel invested in the characters, emote from the storyline, etc.  Many times, even when a book isn’t a winner for me, I’m willing to give the author another shot because not every plot is for me, but maybe…

3.  The Lure by Lynne Ewing - The only book about gang members I’ve read.  I…
