Top Ten Tuesday: Father’s Day Freebie

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

Top Ten Tuesday: Must Meet Authors

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

Not so long ago I wrote a post on my dream book conference panel. We all have authors we’d love to meet in person.

Top Ten Tuesday: Cover Love

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I could have done a TV spotlight, but I did that in last weeks TTT. So the only topic I could think of relevant to this week was on book covers.

Top Ten Tuesday: Things I Want to do Thanks to Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

Happy Tuesdays to you all. 😛 I absolutely love the idea of this weeks topic. So many books have inspired me to want to try something new.
