Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Book Titles That Sound Like They Could Be Crayola Crayon Colors



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 of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.


This is one of those weeks when the topic was too good not to participate. I ended up looking at the current colors on the Crayola website. When I found one I liked, I put the name into my search engine. 





Here are the Top Ten Book Titles That Sound Like They Could Be Mountain Meadow.






And one that actually is. :) 






What do you think of these choices? What is your favorite color? Mine happens to be red, but this is

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mailbox Monday - Apr 12

Welcome to It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mailbox Monday.


 


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.


Welcome back to Monday. How was your weekend? I took a rare weekend off of real estate--well, mostly. I needed to get some things done around the house. The cleaning of the bonus room has now been started so that we can convert it into an exercise room, and the garden bed is finally in the yard. I probably should have ordered two, but I will see how this one goes first. 

I finished this cute book, perfect for Earth Day, over the weekend. You can find my review at The Children's and Teens' Book Connection



I am still reading these two. 


I also started this one. 



These are the next few that I need to read. 













Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.


This week my physical mailbox was empty, but I just ordered some books from Christianbook.com. They have a 99 cent sale going on through tomorrow. I will share these books once they arrive. 

I found one of my favorite books on the list if you're interested.



In Beyond Me, readers will have ten chapters of thought-provoking text that helps them see clearly the distinction between their ever-increasing clash of cultures―the clash between life and death or, in other words, you and me. Written in a warm, personal, and easy-to-read-and-understand style, Beyond Me is an invitation to pursue true discipleship. In poignant, humorous, but always vulnerable and meaningful examples, readers will find current, historical, and biblically documented insights and teachings to support this call to walk in the footsteps of Jesus.

That's it from my neck of the woods. Hope you have a great week.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mailbox Monday - Apr 5

Welcome back to Monday. I hope any of you who celebrate Easter had a nice weekend. Mine was nice, but I really haven't gotten use to these smaller family gatherings. It was just the two of us and the kids; well, the Lil' Diva was working so we didn't see her until later. 

The funny thing is that I've been a mom since I was nineteen years old. Though our son got married ten years ago, I'm not sure if I have ever gotten used to him not being around the house. Now that the Lil' Diva is an adult, and the Lil' Princess is one year away from graduating high school, my role as mother is changing. I'm not sure how I feel about that. Coming up on the anniversary of my father-in-law's death probably isn't helping my mood any. I just want things to stay the same, but they can't ever be the same again. 

My work schedule has been full, so I am not reading as much as I planned. I am still reading these two books.  


I also started this one.

My physical mailbox was empty last week, but I downloaded this new Debbie Macomber collection with some credits I earned from Amazon.




A collection of three new short stories from beloved author Debbie Macomber, including a return to a favorite address in Cedar Cove. First published in Macomber's Digital Magazine, these heartwarming stories are now available exclusively in this collection.

A CEDAR COVE DAD’S ADVICE

Welcome back to Cedar Cove. When we last saw Zach and Rosie Cox in 311 Pelican Court, they had divorced and were awarded joint custody of their two children: Eddie and Allison. Now a grown man, Eddie Cox is experiencing marital problems of his own and turns to his parents for advice. Will Ed and his wife, Emma, be able to resolve their issues and find love again?

A FRESH NEW YEAR

At the beginning of every January, Elle always started off writing down her goals for the year. The usual ones were: Visit her parents more often. Lose ten pounds. Be a good aunt to her niece and nephew. Visit Venice. And of course, find love. This was a fresh new year and Elle was finally feeling ready to start dating again. She set up an online dating profile and before she knew it, she was going on a date. What she didn’t know was that she would be catfished. Is there any chance to salvage her dreams and achieve the one goal she’s always dreamed of: love?

DADDY’S GIRL

From the time she could remember, Molly had always been a Daddy’s girl. When she makes the shocking discovery her dad isn’t her biological father, her whole life is called into question. What's more, her biological father doesn't have long to live, and Molly has to decide whether she wants to meet him before it's too late. Will she make the right decision?

My hope is that I get some down time soon, so that I can enjoy this one. I look forward to hearing what you're reading these days.
