Stacking the Shelves #7, Sunday Salon #7, Sunday Post #7


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 library book for the Buddy Read with my sister; a book for a Blog Tour review in August; a publisher request for review.















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

Just finished one (wedding stuff, you know)












Currently Reading:














Grave Lies is an ARC via Book Sirens; Hench I'm listening to on my commute


BOOKS ADDED TO GOODREADS LAST WEEK

I added 16 more books to Goodreads, and therefore to my TBR, last week. So, if I read about 100 books a year, and I don't add even one more book to the list, ever (like that's going to happen!!), I have 10 years worth of reading. Oh, I guess that's doable! LOL.


PUBLISHED ON THE BLOG LAST WEEK

Reviews (click on the book to see the review)













Top 10 Tuesday: Ten Summery Book Covers



PERSONAL UPDATE

My son's 2-year delayed (thanks covid!) wedding reception was last weekend and was SO beautiful. Outside on a perfect Seattle summer day, friends and family, games and lots of love. Such a terrific day.

First pic at their ACTUAL wedding, 2020 which was much more casual than originally planned. Next, last weekend at the official reception, only 2 years later!




















Somehow I missed

getting a photo of

them together!!!

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!
