Stacking the Shelves #9, Sunday Post and Sunday Salon #9



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.

I need a better system of tracking this if I'm going to keep this segment on the page. I'm guessing 3-5 but won't swear to it!

PERSONAL UPDATE

The biggest news in my corner of the country (Seattle) is that we had a streak of mid-90d weather. I know from reading posts from many of you that you've already been experiencing summer heat waves. 90d in Seattle and everyone melts. Air conditioning is a rarity because it never used to get this hot - maybe a couple days reached 80d. The last 5-7 years though, we've hit 90-100 for a week or two every summer and ...... sheesh, for all the complaining! But, without a/c, it feels pretty darn hot.

Hope you have a most excellent upcoming week and are 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!
