Time Capsule. Pick 5 books that were published during the year you were born (bonus points for anyone who manages to find one on their actual birthday).


BTTBook Traveling Thursday is a weekly event held over on Goodreads by Danielle and Catia.

This week’s topic is Share the love around the world! Choose a book written by an author from a country you don’t read that often.  Sometimes we get great recommendations… Choose a book someone recommended to you that you loved.I haven’t actually finished this book yet, I’m just over halfway through, but I will someday. I promise!

TOP 10 TUESDAY: New to the Queue

“Ten Books I’ve Added To My To-Be-Read List Lately (inspired by my New to the Queue posts)” From The Broke and the Bookish.

I’m always adding books to my TBR (Goodreads lists it as 470 and that’s not including series and sequels – eep) and these Top Ten Tuesdays are often responsible for my adding more. For this week, I’m listing some additions to my TBR that are due to my seeing them on other blogs recent TTT posts. Thanks if one of your suggestions is here!
