Top Ten Bookish Things and People I'm Thankful For

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish


Authors

Julie Lessman
I've had the privilege of getting to know this author a little better and she is every bit as wonderful as the novels she writes!

Melissa Tagg
Another author who I love as a person as much as I love as an author! Her humor never fails to make me laugh and her books leave me in a happy puddle!

Susan May Warren
I got to meet this author a month ago and it was one of the best half hours I can remember! Fangirling with an author is the best!

Kristi Ann Hunter
A new author but already a favorite! I adored her first books and her next one is going to be a marriage of convenience so I'm even more excited!

Kara Issac
Just read this author's debut and I'm in love! She took Tolkien, romance, and humor and mixed it up into a novel of epic amazingness!

Bookish Things

Books that make me laugh
I love to laugh and I love to read so when the two are combined I'm a very happy camper!

Gorgeous book covers
Who doesn't love staring at a pretty book cover!? I seriously wish I could blow some of them up and hang them on my wall, but I'm not sure how the legality of that works...

Libib app
This app is amazingly wonderful! It's the perfect way to keep track of your books and when you have over 860, keeping track is hard to do!

Review books
Free books, need I say more?!

Family sagas
I absolutely adore series that are all about families! It makes everything so much more connected and it is awesome!

Hosted by: The Book Date

Here is what I finished last week:
Close to You was everything I was hoping it'd be and more! So amazing! And Game Over was a great conclusion to the Mindwar Trilogy!

What I am currently reading:
Loving this one!

What I hope to read this week:
With the craziness of Thanksgiving this week I doubt I'll even finish I'll Be Yours let alone start another book!

Hope you have a great reading week, thanks for taking the time to check out mine!

Waiting on Wednesday #227: Still Life

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're
eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Still Life by Dani Pettrey
Bethany House-January 31. 2017

About the Book
Blacklisted in the photography business over a controversial shot, Avery Tate answered an ad for a crime scene photographer. She expected to be laughed at, but crime scene analyst Parker Mitchell hired her outright--and changed her life. But six months ago, when her feelings for Parker became too strong, she left his employ to sort out her heart.
Now, for the first time, Avery is facing the world that rejected her to attend the gallery opening of a photography exhibit and support her best friend, who modeled for the show. But the only image of her friend is a chilling photo of her posing as if dead--and the photographer insists he didn't take the shot. Worse, her friend can't be found. She immediately calls Parker for help. As Avery, Parker, and his friends in law enforcement dig into the mystery, they find themselves face-to-face with a relentless and deadly threat.

Why I Want It
Loved Parker and Avery in Cold Shot and I can't wait for their story!

Friday 11/11

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
Are the giveaways on your blog publisher-sponsored giveaways or giveaways of your own books?

My Answer:
I don't do giveaways very often but the couple I've done were either my books or through the author.

The pathetic state of Allison Shire's existence was perfectly summed up by the size-twelve prosthetic feet mocking her from the floor of the Mercedes minibus. Their hairy tops taunted her in ways she didn't even have words to express. Nasty wretched fake hobbit feet.
Close to You by Kara Issac 

My Thoughts
Made me smile! Love the Tolkien aspect of this story!

Friday Memes 11/4

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
When you settle in for the night with a good book, do you read until you can't stay awake or simply have a nightly page goal?

My Answer:
I don't often read right before bed but when I do I usually just read until the time I like to be ready for bed. Unless the book is too good to put down!
