Stacking the Shelves #21, Sunday Post and Sunday Salon #21



It's the weekend, so it must be time to enjoy a few of my favorite book memes.








Stacking the Shelves is hosted every Saturday by Marlene @ Reading Reality and promotes sharing books you actually received during the week - library, purchase, ARC, gift, etc. as well as what you think you might read in the upcoming week. The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and is a place to share posts, reviews, personal updates, etc. The Sunday Salon hosted by Deb @ ReaderBuzz is a similar format. Join me in visiting the wide array of book blogs in the world.

PERSONAL UPDATE

All the other categories may be a bit thin this week because I've been on vacation. We spent the week in Puerto Vallarta for some relaxation in the sun - if I have a chance, I'll post a few pics here in lieu of books. But rest assured, I did read. I just don't know how the wifi will be or how much time I'll have to post. More of an update when I get back. In the meantime, if you visit, I promise I'll return the visit sometime this week!


We vacationed with our grown sons and their wife/girlfriend - I think everyone had a great time. We all expected hot weather, but it was HOT and humid so the double whammy sucked our energy some days. We persevered in our pursuit of fun adventures - and had some surprises and disappointments along the way. My older son was having severe back pain which curtailed his participation in most of the activities and when he did come along, he didn't really do much. Then, his wife was stung by a sea urchin on a snorkeling trip which cut that one short. Ah well. We enjoyed our share of margaritas, great food, and beautiful sunsets.

VACATION PHOTOS BY TERRIE PURKEY - PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO

I think our favorite thing of the week was this "tour" where we were able to release rescued baby turtles to the sea. They had just hatched that day and each of us got 2 turtles in a coconut shell that we turned on its side on the sand and watched our hatchlings crawl their way - about 20'- to the ocean. It was amazing!
















Hope you have a most excellent upcoming week and hopefully finding time to enjoy a good book. Looking forward to visiting as many as I can again this week!



Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's my goal to provide real reviews of the books I read without totally rehashing every plot. I'll never spoil a story by giving away a plot twist! Hopefully you'll find one or two of interest and will discover a new book or author to add to YOUR TBR list.  Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let me know what you think.

                            TIPS

For your convenience, I use #hashtags in the 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 the site and find books you'll enjoy. I've also recently added tags that will show up at the end of each review that serve the same purpose.

The review ratings are based on a 5 star  (1/2 stars sometimes) system with a 3 being an average read for me. I hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - my opinion!  Let me know if you agree or disagree - I'd love to hear from you.

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