Top Ten Tuesday – My Favorite Places to Read

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is My Favorite Places to Read.  I feel like I’ve done this topic before but couldn’t find a post anywhere.  Maybe I just like to think about all of the places I like to read a lot.  Anyway, whatever the reason, I’m doing the topic as is and sharing my favorite reading spots.

My Favorite Places to Read

 

1. Library/Home Office – This is my favorite room in my house.  It has lots of natural light and a big comfy chair, perfect for reading.  This is my absolute favorite spot to read in.

2.  Bed – I have trouble sleeping at night so I always look to a book to help me relax, wind down, and fall asleep.  Apparently I’m all about being cozy because I love to pile on the blankets, a big fluffy comforter, and lots of pillows when I read in bed.

3.  Lunch – I don’t really have a specific location tied to this one, but wherever I sit down to eat lunch, especially during the work week, I love to have a book with me.  Having that time to read in the middle of the day is just as important to me as stopping to actually eat.

4.  Public Transportation – Whether it’s a plane, train, subway, or even just riding in the car (or even driving if I have an audiobook), reading is my favorite way to pass this otherwise dead time.

5. Waiting Rooms – Same as above honestly. It’s a great way to pass the time while you’re stuck somewhere, and it also helps if I’m feeling anxious about whoever I’m meeting with.

6. Beach or Pool – I actually get bored and want to leave if I go to the beach or pool and don’t have anything to read.

7.  Outside on my Deck – Certain times of the year are better than others for this, but when the weather is comfortable, I love to sit outside on the deck and read.  I live in a really quiet neighborhood so it’s very peaceful and relaxing, with just the sounds of birds chirping in the background.

8.  Kitchen – This probably sounds like a weird choice, but the kitchen has become one of the main places where I listen to audiobooks.  I love to listen to them while I’m cooking, cleaning, doing dishes, etc.

9. Laundry Room – Along similar lines, I listen to a lot of audiobooks while doing chores related to laundry – sorting, folding, ironing, etc.  It’s such a lovely way to make a tedious chore so much more enjoyable.

10. Vacation – Lastly, wherever I happen to be traveling on vacation is automatically a favorite place to read.  The exact location doesn’t matter because for me, half of the point of vacation is so that I can read more, lol.

Can’t Wait Wednesday – COUNT YOUR LUCKY STARS by Alexandria Bellefleur

 

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

* * * * *

My selection for this week is COUNT YOUR LUCKY STARS by Alexandria Bellefleur. Best friends to lovers and a second  chance romance?  Yes, please!  I’ve actually not read the first two books in this series yet but have seen nothing but rave reviews for them.  I see a binge-read in my near future. 🙂

 

COUNT YOUR LUCKY STARS by Alexandria Bellefleur

Publication Date:  February 1, 2022 by Avon Books

From Goodreads:

Following Written in the Stars and Hang the Moon, national bestselling author Alexandria Bellefleur pens another steamy queer rom-com about former best friends who might be each other’s second chance at love…

Margot Cooper doesn’t do relationships. She tried and it blew up in her face, so she’ll stick with casual hookups, thank you very much. But now her entire crew has found “the one” and she’s beginning to feel like a fifth wheel. And then fate (the heartless bitch) intervenes. While touring a wedding venue with her engaged friends, Margot comes face-to-face with Olivia Grant—her childhood friend, her first love, her first… well, everything. It’s been ten years, but the moment they lock eyes, Margot’s cold, dead heart thumps in her chest.

Olivia must be hallucinating. In the decade since she last saw Margot, her life hasn’t gone exactly as planned. At almost thirty, she’s been married… and divorced. However, a wedding planner job in Seattle means a fresh start and a chance to follow her dreams. Never in a million years did she expect her important new client’s Best Woman would be the one that got away.

When a series of unfortunate events leaves Olivia without a place to stay, Margot offers up her spare room because she’s a Very Good Person. Obviously. It has nothing to do with the fact that Olivia is as beautiful as ever and the sparks between them still make Margot tingle. As they spend time in close quarters, Margot starts to question her no-strings stance. Olivia is everything she’s ever wanted, but Margot let her in once and it ended in disaster. Will history repeat itself or should she count her lucky stars that she gets a second chance with her first love?

Top Ten Tuesday – My Favorite Books That Feature Found Families

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is actually supposed to be Secondary/Minor Characters Who Deserve More Love. I completely blanked out on this topic because every favorite secondary character that came to mind has since had their own book and has gotten more love.  My favorite secondary characters tend to be part of a found family though, so I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite books that feature found families.  I really love the found family trope.  There’s not much more satisfying to me than seeing characters find their people and form those loving and supportive bonds that have been missing in their lives up to that point.  My favorite found families are always there for each other, ready to kick some ass, if need be, and sometimes even ready to knock some sense into each other if a member of the family has gone off the rails.  There’s nothing quite like the family you choose for yourself.

My Favorite Books That Feature Found Families

 

 

 

 

1. SIX OF CROWS DUOLOGY by Leigh Bardugo – Kaz, Inej, Jesper, Wylan, Matthias, and Nina – Is there anything this amazing band of morally gray characters wouldn’t do for each other?  “No mourners, no funerals.”

2.  THE HOUSE IN THE CERULEAN SEA by T.J. Klune  – Linus and the adorable magical children he takes care of all just stole my heart when I read this book.  This found family includes a gnome, a sprite, a wyvern, an unidentifiable green blob, a were-Pomeranian, and the Antichrist.

3.  BATTLE ROYAL by Lucy Parker  – This is a recent favorite of mine.  I had so much fun reading about the staff who worked with Sylvie at the Sugar Fair.  They all bicker like an old married couple but have each other’s backs when it comes down to it.

4.  THE BROMANCE BOOK CLUB by Lyssa Kay Adams  – Perhaps my favorite found family of all are the guys from the Bromance Book Club.  I love how these guys are there to support each other, especially in matters of love and romance, but in so many other ways.

5. THE ILLUMINAE FILES by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – A group of sassy teens kicking butt and saving the day in space – what’s not to love?

6.  THE BREAK-UP BOOK CLUB by Wendy Wax  – Another recent favorite.  I loved how the members of this book club became such a tremendous emotional support system for each of its members.  All I could think while reading was how much I would have loved to have these folks in my corner.

7.  THE LUNAR CHRONICLES BY MARISSA MEYER  – I think pretty much everyone who follows me is familiar with this crew.  This is my favorite fairytale retelling and it’s specifically because of the found family of Cinder, Kai, Scarlet, Wolf, Cress, Carswell Thorne, and Princess Winter, and Jacin and the way they all band together to defeat the evil queen.

8.  THE HARRY POTTER SERIES by J.K. Rowling  – Another series that everyone who follows me is probably familiar with.  As much as I enjoyed all of the magical elements of this book, it was the family that Harry Potter found at Hogwarts that really made this such a special read for me.

9. ONE LAST STOP by Casey McQuiston  – The roommates August lives with when she moves to New York City, along with the staff at the 24 hour pancake diner she works at, as well as the drag queen that lives across the hall.  It’s a unique collection of individuals for sure, but once they make August a part of their little family, they would truly do anything for her.  It was delightful to read about.

10. A COURT OF THORN AND ROSES SERIES by Sarah J. Maas  – Last but definitely not least is the crew from the Night Court in the ACOTAR series.  This crew was so tight that I was convinced at first that they really were family.  Rhysand, Cassian, Azriel, and Mor were exactly the support system Feyre needed after all she endured.  They’re all kickass warriors but also giant softies when they need to be.

* * * * * *

Question:  Have you read any of these? Do you enjoy reading about found families?

Can’t Wait Wednesday – DELILAH GREEN DOESN’T CARE by Ashley Herring Blake

 

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

* * * * *

My selection for this week is DELILAH GREEN DOESN’T CARE by Ashley Herring Blake.  This is another book that is pretty far out in terms of publication date, but I’m such  a huge fan of this author’s YA contemporary novels. She creates some of the most wonderful and unforgettable characters and her stories are always so moving.  I’m very excited to see how she does with a rom-com. 🙂

DELILAH GREEN DOESN’T CARE by Ashley Herring Blake

Publication Date:  February 22, 2022 by Berkley

 

From Goodreads:

A clever and steamy queer romantic comedy about taking chances and accepting love—with all its complications—by debut author Ashley Herring Blake.

Delilah Green swore she would never go back to Bright Falls—nothing is there for her but memories of a lonely childhood where she was little more than a burden to her cold and distant stepfamily. Her life is in New York, with her photography career finally gaining steam and her bed never empty. Sure, it’s a different woman every night, but that’s just fine with her.

When Delilah’s estranged stepsister, Astrid, pressures her into photographing her wedding with a guilt trip and a five-figure check, Delilah finds herself back in the godforsaken town that she used to call home. She plans to breeze in and out, but then she sees Claire Sutherland, one of Astrid’s stuck-up besties, and decides that maybe there’s some fun (and a little retribution) to be had in Bright Falls, after all.

Having raised her eleven-year-old daughter mostly on her own while dealing with her unreliable ex and running a bookstore, Claire Sutherland depends upon a life without surprises. And Delilah Green is an unwelcome surprise…at first. Though they’ve known each other for years, they don’t really know each other—so Claire is unsettled when Delilah figures out exactly what buttons to push. When they’re forced together during a gauntlet of wedding preparations—including a plot to save Astrid from her horrible fiancé—Claire isn’t sure she has the strength to resist Delilah’s charms. Even worse, she’s starting to think she doesn’t want to…

This week’s TTT topic is actually supposed to be Titles or Covers That Made Me Want to Read/Buy the Book.  I decided to focus on covers, mainly because I’m a sucker for a cool cover and because they are usually what first catches my attention and makes me interested in learning more about a book.  As you can see from my selection, I’m very drawn to flowers, rich and vibrant colors, and to black and white covers with pops of red.

My selection for this week is THE BOOK OF COLD CASES by Simone St. James.  This book is pretty far out in terms of publication date, but with a blurb like that I couldn’t resist sharing it early.

THE BOOK OF COLD CASES by Simone St. James

Publication Date:  March 15, 2022 by Berkley Books

 

From Goodreads:

A true crime blogger gets more than she bargained for while interviewing the woman acquitted of two cold case slayings in this chilling new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Sun Down Motel.

In 1977, Claire Lake, Oregon, was shaken by the Lady Killer Murders: Two men, seemingly randomly, were murdered with the same gun, with strange notes left behind. Beth Greer was the perfect suspect-a rich, eccentric twenty-three-year-old woman, seen fleeing one of the crimes. But she was acquitted, and she retreated to the isolation of her mansion. Oregon, 2017.

Shea Collins is a receptionist, but by night, she runs a true crime website, the Book of Cold Cases-a passion fueled by the attempted abduction she escaped as a child. When she meets Beth by chance, Shea asks her for an interview. To Shea’s surprise, Beth says yes. They meet regularly at Beth’s mansion, though Shea is never comfortable there. Items move when she’s not looking, and she could swear she’s seen a small girl outside the window. The allure of learning the truth about the case from the smart, charming Beth is too much to resist, but even as they grow closer, Shea senses something isn’t right. Is she making friends with a manipulative murderer, or are there other dangers lurking in the darkness of the Greer house?

Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Books I Might Finally Read If I Was Stranded on a Deserted Island with Them

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is actually supposed to be Books I’d Want With Me While Stranded On a Deserted Island.  I’m pretty sure I’ve done that topic before though so I tweaked it a bit and decided to some books I might finally get around to reading if I’m stuck on an island alone with nothing but a stack of books for company.  In most cases these are books that have been sitting on my TBR shelf for years and for whatever reason, I just keep skipping over them.  Or I’ve started them but never finished.  I haven’t purged them because I really do want to read them.

10 Books I Might Finally Read If I Was Stranded on a Deserted Island with Them

 

 

1. HAMILTON by Ron Chernow – I started this book at the height of my obsession with Hamilton.  It’s interesting too but it’s also a brick of a book at 731 pages so I keep shoving it aside.

2.  FIRE & BLOOD by George R.R. Martin – Another monster book (719 pages) I started but keep setting aside in favor of shorter books and also because I’d rather be reading the next ASOIF novel, which Martin has yet to finish.

3.  THE HOLY BIBLE – I’ve been telling myself for years that I need to read/study the Bible, but have yet to to do it.

4.  REBEL OF THE SANDS by Alwyn Hamilton – Switching gears a bit, the is the fantasy novel that has been sitting on my TBR shelf the longest (5 years!).  It sounds amazing and I can’t even account for why I haven’t read it yet.

5. A LITTLE LIFE by Hanya Yanagihara – I’ve heard great things about this book but between its 720 page length and the fact that it looks to be a completely heart-wrenching read, I keep bypassing it on my shelf in favor of shorter, happier reads.

6. INK AND BONE by Rachel Caine – Another fantasy series I want to read that has inexplicably been sitting on my shelf for almost 5 years.

7.  GODS OF JADE AND SHADOW by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – This was my very first BOTM pick and I was so excited to get it, yet it’s still sitting there waiting to be read.

8.  UPROOTED by Naomi Novik – This book has been sitting on my shelf for 4 years. I still really want to read it but have to admit that I’ve hesitated because I didn’t love Spinning Silver.

9. TO THE BRIGHT EDGE OF THE WORLD by Eowyn Ivey – Another book I’ve been inexplicably avoiding even though I loved her last book and have seen nothing but glowing reviews for this one.

10. EVERY HEART A DOORWAY by Seanan McGuire – I’ve been drawn to this series for years now but became reluctant to start it after not enjoying my first read from the author.

* * * * *

My selection for this week is Witch Please by Ann Aguirre.  This book grabbed my attention right away with that fun cover and the “Practical Magic meets Gilmore Girls” comparison.  I love a good witchy read anyway and as soon as I read the synopsis, I knew this one was too cute to pass up.

WITCH PLEASE by Ann Aguirre

Publication Date:  September 7, 2021 by Sourcebooks Casablanca

 

From Goodreads:

Practical Magic meets Gilmore Girls in this adorable witchy rom-com with:

• A bisexual virgin baker with a curse
• A witch looking to avoid romantic entanglements
• And a chemistry between them that causes literal sparks

Danica Waterhouse is a fully modern witch—daughter, granddaughter, cousin, and co-owner of the Fix-It Witches, a magical tech repair shop. After a messy breakup that included way too much family “feedback,” Danica made a pact with her cousin: they’ll keep their hearts protected and have fun, without involving any of the overly opinionated Waterhouse matriarchs. Danica is more than a little exhausted navigating a long-standing family feud where Gram thinks the only good mundane is a dead one and Danica’s mother weaves floral crowns for anyone who crosses her path.

Three blocks down from the Fix-It Witches, Titus Winnaker, owner of Sugar Daddy’s bakery, has family trouble of his own. After a tragic loss, all he’s got left is his sister, the bakery, and a lifetime of terrible luck in love. Sure, business is sweet, but he can’t seem to shake the romantic curse that’s left him past thirty and still a virgin. He’s decided he’s doomed to be forever alone.

Until he meets Danica Waterhouse. The sparks are instant, their attraction irresistible. For him, she’s the one. To her, he’s a firebomb thrown in the middle of a family war. Can a modern witch find love with an old-fashioned mundane who refuses to settle for anything less than forever?

Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Books I Read in One Sitting

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is 10 Books I Read in One Sitting.  I tend to be a pretty fast reader anyway, but even so, it typically takes me at least 2 or 3 sittings to read most books.  That said, there have been a few standouts over the years that once I started reading, I just couldn’t put them down until I had finished.  Sometimes it’s a riveting thriller, sometimes it’s a heartwrenching drama, and other times it’s just an especially swoony romance.

10 Books I Read in One Sitting

 

1. RAZORBLADE TEARS by S.A. Cosby – a heart wrenching yet also suspenseful and action-packed drama about two fathers on a quest to find their sons’ killer. Couldn’t put it down.

2.  THE NIGHTINGALE by Kristin Hannah – WWII historical fiction that tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each choosing their own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France.  Full of suspense and heartbreak, but also resilience and courage, this book left me a sobbing mess by the end.

3.  ILLUMINAE by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman – Illuminae has it all – it’s a thriller, an action-packed sci-fi adventure, and it’s even got a romance.  All of that, coupled with incredibly unique formatting made Illuminae a one-sitting read for me.

4.  PROJECT HAIL MARY by Andy Weir – There’s just something about Andy Weir’s brand of sci-fi with its lovable characters trying to survive in space that really appeals to me. His first book, The Martian, was also a book I devoured in one sitting.

5. THE FOREST OF VANISHING STARS by Kristin Harmel – This story of a young woman helping Jewish refugees hide from the Nazis in the forests of Poland pushed Harmel into the auto-buy category for me.  Her storytelling, coupled with this being inspired by actual events, made for a read I could not put down.  Her previous book, The Book of Lost Names, was also one I read in one sitting.

6. DAISY JONES & THE SIX by Taylor Jenkins Reid – An intensely realistic drama about the rise of an iconic rock band.  This book and its characters captivated me to the extent that I Googled them to see if they were a real band.

7.  UNSUB by Meg Gardiner – Super creepy thriller. Enough said.

8.  A COURT OF MIST AND FURY by Sarah J. Maas – Rhysand’s sexiness, combined with the allure of the Night Court, made this a one-sitting read.

9. THE SIMPLE WILD by K.A. Tucker – The romance between Calla and Jonah is EVERYTHING.  I was actually annoyed at how fast I flew through this book because I really wanted to savor it, lol.

10. THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins – A riveting dystopian nightmare. Couldn’t put it down until I knew who would live and who would die.

THE NIGHT SHE DISAPPEARED by Lisa Jewell

Publication Date:  September 7, 2021 by Atria Books

From Goodreads:

She never returns.

2019: Sophie is walking in the woods near the boarding school where her boyfriend has just started work as a head-teacher when she sees a note fixed to a tree.

‘DIG HERE’ . . .

A cold case, an abandoned mansion, family trauma and dark secrets lie at the heart of Lisa Jewell’s remarkable new novel.
