I’ve had to cut down on my blogging time this year so instead of writing a review for every book I read (good, ho-hum, or bad) I decided to just post a mid-year and end-of-year wrap-up of my top recommended reads! I’ve written mini-reviews for you here but you can always hop on over to Goodreads to read more of my thoughts there as well as my thoughts on other books I’ve read so far this year. But without further ado, here’s what I really enjoyed and stood out to me these first six months of 2020… (listed alphabetically)

This month’s post is dedicated to Springtime! Here’s a list of my Top 10 favorite reads for the season. Why do they make me think of Spring? I really don’t know haha but they’re what came to mind when putting together a list plus I’m trying not to repeat books in any of this year’s lists and that is a challenge to be sure! What are your favorites? Continue reading

Top Ten Books Read in 2019

Banner_top books and series_v2

I’ve been lucky enough this year to read a great number of books so trying to choose only ten favorites was incredibly difficult, but at last here we are. The year 2019 has come to an end and to reflect briefly on those months that have passed I’ve come up with my traditional list of the top ten books I read & reviewed this year along with some honorable mentions Continue reading

2019 Indie Spotlight

In addition to my usual end-of-year/new-year’s posts of my Top Books Read and Top Anticipated Reads, I’d like to do a post that highlights some of my favorite self-published/indie author/indie pub. books that I’ve read this year. My blog is open to all submissions and this leads to quite the variety of reads (which I love!) and so this post will be a moment to promote and praise some of my Top 2019 Reads that you won’t find being pushed and flaunted in major bookstores. Hopefully something will catch your eye! Continue reading

I’ve been lucky enough this year to read a great number of books so trying to choose only ten favorites was incredibly difficult. But at last here we are. The year 2018 has come to an end and to reflect briefly on those months that have passed I’ve come up with my traditional list of the top ten books I read & reviewed this year along with some honorable mentions (because it really was too difficult to choose only ten!) all listed in alphabetical order. I say books I read as opposed to books released in 2018 because honestly then creating these yearly lists wouldn’t be as fun or hard. Let me know if you enjoyed any of these as well! What are some of your top books you read this year?  Continue reading

BRN #24: Bookish Eating Habits

Banner_babbles rambles and nonsense_24

They say reading feeds your brain (and soul) but I’ve been thinking about it lately and this really is a funnily accurate statement. Books are truly like food for the brain! Yes I mean that in the sense that you absorb information from them, you learn from them, you widen your world view via them, etc. But in an almost comical way they can also reflect our eating habits…sorta. 😜  Continue reading

I have had the privilege of reading a a great number of books this year so narrowing it down to only ten favorites was incredibly difficult. But at last here we are. The year 2017 has come to a close and to reflect briefly on those months that have passed I’ve come up with a list of the top ten books I read in the year of 2017 along with some honorable mentions (because it really was too difficult to choose only ten!) all listed in alphabetical order. I say books I read as opposed to books released in 2017 because honestly then creating these yearly lists wouldn’t be as fun or hard. Let me know if you enjoyed any of these as well!
