Four years and look out…

Hi Everyone,

A certain surprise memory occurred for me today… Four years ago today, I received my first book review request from an author!!! I can’t believe it has been four years… With everything that has happened, and through all the bumps along the way, I wanted to say, I am truly grateful for your continued support. THANK YOU! You all have kept me going and I appreciate each and everyone of you.

Now hold onto your beach hats, because several reviews are headed your way!

Enjoy!

Hi Everyone,

It is a holiday weekend, which means an extra day of reading!

Do you like to read books in theme with the holiday? Do you savor a favorite title during your break or pick up a wish list book to enjoy?

As for me, I like to seize the opportunity to read a wish list book. If I can match it to the holiday, that’s an added bonus for me, but it isn’t necessary. I just like to think of a long, weekend as the ideal time to try and shorten the length of the ever growing wish list!!! 😉

What type of books do you read on a long weekend?

Enjoy!

What are you Reading?

Hi Everyone,

How was your weekend? I spent mine relaxing, cuddling with my boys and reading. It was a very enjoyable weekend for me and I hope you all can say the same!

I found that after one, care-free day, my internal battery was recharged and I have been steadily catching up on things! YAY!

So what are you reading this week?

Enjoy!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing Moms out there! In honor of this lovely day and the lovely women who raised us, today’s topic is about children’s books.

What is your favorite childhood book that your Mom used to read to you?

Mine is, Love You Forever by Robert Munsch! Mom and I used to read this book daily and I still have it memorized!

I got to say, I was beyond blessed that I had an incredible Mom, who encouraged my love of reading.

Tell me in the comments below, what book brings back the best memories of you and your Mom.

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin the Month…

In times of storm and tempest, of indecision and desolation, a book already known and loved makes better reading than something new and untried … nothing is so warming and companionable.

What are you reading?

Hi Everyone,

Happy Game Day! First, my hockey team played and won. Then, we were engrossed in the adorable Puppy Bowl, and now the Super Bowl is lighting up our television screen. What about you? Are you cheering on your favorite team tonight?

Yesterday, at the bookstore I talked to several people who were stocking up for their own type of Bowl Day… a reading marathon, so to speak. So if you are reading today, like me, tell me how many books you have conquered and which ones had you the most enthralled.

Either way, hope you all have had a lovely Sunday!

 

Enjoy!

Where Have I Been?

Hi Everyone,

Happy February! Hope you all are doing well. January was a wash for me as I spent several days traveling back and forth to doctors’ appointments. It is a draining, but necessary process.

Life is slowly getting soothed out, as I carve out and organize my creative workspace. Be on the lookout for a lot of reviews, and special posts in the coming days.

Thanks again for the continued support. I am thoroughly looking forward to 2016!

Enjoy!

Did You Hear?

Hi Everyone,
Happy December 1st!!! Did you hear the exciting news? Goodreads announced their Best Books of 2015!!! How many have you read and how many did you add to your To Be Read pile? Sadly, I had only read a couple, but today, I added several titles to my wish list.

Speaking of Goodreads, how many of you signed up for this year’s Reading Challenge? If you did, how are you doing? I, of course, signed up. I am still several books away from my goal, but I will be closer once I finish updating my sites this week.

 

I am wishing you all a happy and healthy December filled with great books!

Enjoy,
~Ariesgrl
