Top Ten Tuesday – Books with Numbers

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is about books that have numbers in their title.

The only book that I have read this year with numbers in the title is:

I read a bunch more numbered books in 2018:

Seven Husbands was definitely my favorite from that bunch. See my review here.

Here are two from my TBR of 214:

It was overdue but I fear we went a bit too short. He was great, though. My husband used the “silent” clippers and I just held him in my arms.

Top Ten Tuesday : Rainy Day Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is organized by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Rainy day reads”

Some for the kids…

My kids are “afraid” of thunderstorms and it helps them to about what’s happening outside. The Berenstain Bear book only has 1-2 pages on rain and one one thunderstorms but it was requested several times over the last few days.

Top Ten Tuesday: Things that make me pick up a book

Top Ten Tuesday is organized by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s list is about the kinds of things that make me pick up a book to read. I don’t think I can come up with 10 different things to answer this prompt because I feel like I’m pretty simple when it comes to books.

If a book has a

beautiful cover, or

is repeatedly recommended by friends or book bloggers I trust, or

has a fascinating premise, or

all 3.

Then I will pick up the book!

Reviews: Strange the Dreamer, The 7 Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Circe, Bear and the Nightingale

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!

I know, today is Thursday. This is what life is like with 3 kids. Even when you live with your mom because you just moved 2,000 miles to be closer to family, you will still not have enough time to read or update your blog.

Without further ado:

In 2018 I kept telling everybody that I would read…
