An unintended break from the blog

Life got in the way the last couple weeks and it may have looked like I abandoned the blog. But, no, I just was moving house.

Hubby and I have been looking for awhile to find just the right "forever" house so we didn't have to move again. We found it! So within three weeks we were packed and moved and another week to settle in at the new place. Probably 90% of our stuff is put away and organized. Not my books yet though. We're doing new bookshelves and they aren't installed yet, so books and accessories are still in boxes.

We bought the new place primarily because of the stellar view! We have windows galore looking out over trees and the Cascade Mountains and, most spectacularly, Mt. Rainier. When it's not cloudy and raining, we have amazing views and I feel like I'm living in a treehouse!

Even though we were busy moving, I didn't stop reading, so I still have some great reviews and info to share. Now that life has returned to normal somewhat, the blog will continue! Watch for reviews to resume soon!


Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's our goal to provide real reviews of the books we read (and we both read a lot of different genres), so that you can be introduced to some new books or authors to add to YOUR TBR (to be read) list. Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let us know what you think.


For your convenience, we use #hashtags in our reviews and when you click on one, you'll find more books with that theme. Hopefully you'll find it a helpful way to navigate our site and find books you'll enjoy.

Our review ratings are based on a 5 star (we do use 1/2 stars sometimes) system, and hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - our opinions!  Let us know if you agree or disagree - we want to hear from you.

If you like what you see and want to keep up with us, subscribe below.  Happy Reading!
