Down the TBR Hole #3

banner_down the TBR hole_3.png

Another month, another batch of books up on the chopping block! In an effort to cut down my ever-growing TBR list I’ve selected another five hopefuls that I’m trying to decide whether I should keep them and read them, or scratch them off my list and wave them farewell.

As always I greatly appreciate your opinions and help!

book roulette post

I am an avid reader and a dedicated book blogger but sometimes I get requests from authors to review their books and unfortunately I just don’t have the time in my busy schedule and/or perhaps it’s just not quite my thing.

Banner_babbles rambles and nonsense_17.png

So everyone near the zone for the solar eclipse is getting pretty excited, myself included because I’ve never seen one in person (and I’ll be in a city that is in the path of “totality” plus I mean, come on, this is the first time it’s going to cross the continental U.S. from coast to coast in about 100 years!). I’m lucky enough to be front and center for it all and the whole ancient mystery around it has me intrigued. (Okay fine it’s just basic science but play along, will ya?)  Continue reading
