Weekend Book Sharing and Blog Visits



It's the weekend, so it must be time to enjoy a few of my favorite book memes. This is a great opportunity for readers and bloggers to share what they've been up to - both newly received books, what you've read or want to read and any bookish or personal news/updates.








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.

I added 19 books to my TBR wish list this week.



PERSONAL UPDATE

I'm over covid with seemingly no lingering effects but hubby is still testing positive and feeling sick at day 14 - sigh. Thanks for all the well wishes last week - it's very heartwarming. We had an annual family joint birthday celebration planned for this weekend which we postponed due to --- covid. I'm back at work and all is slowly returning to normal.



A PAINTING BY TERRIE PURKEY - CELEBRATING ARTISTIC ENDEAVORS



In Tuesday's Top 20 Tuesday bookish goals for the year, one of the things I listed is Balance - trying to find balance in my life to enjoy all of my creative endeavors, not just blogging.


Here's a couple watercolor paintings from a few years ago when I was really focusing on trees..... I miss painting.

















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!
