It's Been a Busy Week - Week #5 Meme Participation


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.


BOOKS I RECEIVED LAST WEEK

A Netgalley ARC, and a library book.












BOOKS I FINISHED LAST WEEK AND WHAT I'M READING NOW













I finished 2.5 books; a review for Modern Magick and Portrait of a Thief HERE. Jayber Crow was a DNF at 40%.

BOOKS ADDED TO GOODREADS LAST WEEK

For the last couple years my sister and I have selected 2 books a month to read as Buddy Reads in our own mini-bookclub. We choose a whole years worth of titles at once and then from that list of 24, each of us chooses one a month to read together. June was our selection month for the upcoming year so 6 of her selections were not already on my TBR and beefed up my total adds. PLUS, last week was "share 10 books on your summer reading list" on Top Ten Tuesday and I got lots of ideas there. Those explanations out of the way, I added 13 books to Goodreads (therefore on my TBR) this week! Sheesh!


PUBLISHED ON THE BLOG LAST WEEK

I had a busy posting week last week. I added some reviews:

PERSONAL UPDATE

We have a wedding celebration (the reception that didn't happen) next weekend (July 9) to celebrate the wedding of my son and his wife that actually took place 2 years ago in the midst of covid. We'll have family staying with us and I've committed to making the floral arrangements so it'll be a busy week.

Hope you have a most excellent upcoming week - enjoying your Fourth holiday, and hopefully finding time to enjoy a good book. Looking forward to visiting 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!
