Weekend Book Sharing and Blog Visits



It's Christmas weekend so it might be a lightly attended sharing weekend. I've worked ahead and got the post ready to go unless what I finish reading changes. If you're not doing bloggy stuff this weekend, that's cool - but when you do get back to it, I hope you've had an amazing holiday with your friends and family!









I'll be linking to: Stacking the Shelves is hosted every Saturday by Marlene @ Reading Reality The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. The Sunday Salon hosted by Deb @ ReaderBuzz, Mailbox Monday hosted by Words and Peace is also a weekly gathering place to share new books received. Join me in visiting the wide array of book blogs in the world.

CHALLENGE and TBR UPDATE

Coyer challenge 26/54 (need 27 to complete the challenge)

Added 7 books to my TBR.

Have almost decided on my challenges for 2023 - am considering 12! (gulp - 12???!!!)


PERSONAL UPDATE

SNOW! Again. Really??? It's starting to feel like the new normal which I do NOT like! Snow doesn't belong in Seattle. In fact I woke up to snow on my birthday day this week. Hubby took me out to dinner - so nice to feel special. And, SURPRISE!

Such a fun surprise party planned by my hubby. Friends and family braved the weather to help me celebrate AND it was even on a week night! Turning 70 couldn't have been more fun.










Hope you have a most excellent Christmas or holiday season with friends and family and people that are special to you. Since it's my first year joining many of these memes, I'm not sure of the protocol of publishing, but I'll put this out there regardless, hoping some of you see the Happy Holiday wishes!



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!
