Stacking the Shelves #8, Sunday Salon & Sunday Post #8



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

From the library:



I'm an urban sketcher and when I walked into the library, here were these two books sitting on its main display. I had to get them and see if there was anything new. In the Illustrated Journey, I found several sketchers I'm familiar with and lots of inspirational ideas.






I received a couple ARCS from Netgalley:

BOOKS ADDED TO GOODREADS LAST WEEK

I kind of lost track but think I added 11 books to my TBR / Goodreads thanks to all the ideas from the Stacking the Shelves and Sunday blog visits.

PERSONAL UPDATE

Happy news! My husband and I celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary this week. It's been a wonderful ride and I wouldn't change a day of it - he's a fabulous guy.


Unfortunately it looks like our family has not escaped covid unscathed. My oldest son had it right before his wedding celebration and now my youngest has it. Luckily hubby and I have avoided it so far! Knock on wood. Other than that, life goes on.....going to work, reading, adding content to the blog, sitting on the deck enjoying our minute of summer. Hope you're all doing well!

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!
