So yesterday’s top ten Tuesday’s prompt was: Things that get in the way of reading. I never remember Top Ten Tuesday because it’s not something I follow religiously until I see another blog posting about it and if it’s an interesting prompt.

Reading old friends.
What book could you read over and over again? I’ve read Me Before You by JoJo Moyes many times and never got tired of it.

My February 2023 in Books
I read five books in February. This is amazing considering I had a cold at the beginning of the month and didn’t feel like reading.

I’ve read Educated by Tara Westover and Blood in the Water by Caleb Roehrig in the last week or so.

Who is your favorite author and why? I haven’t really read one author exclusively for a long time. I suppose my favorite author would be Phillipa Gregory as I’ve read a lot of her books and will pretty much buy any of her books if I see one I don’t own yet. She’s a historian … Continue reading Favorite Authors
10 of my Favorite Books of 2022
I read a lot of books this year, which is surprising to me as I feel like every year my struggle to read is worse than the year before. This year I read 65 books.
