Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon


Read-a-thon Banner


The Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon is hosted by Wishful Endings. It runs from September 11th through 24th with the goal of diminishing our to-read pile of books. All books in any format and source count and you do not have to be a blogger to participate. There are challenges and giveaways as well. You can sign up through September 23rd. Read all the specific details here. You may also join the Goodreads group, if interested, here.

~ My Reading Goals ~

My TBR looks like a library exploded—and it probably always will. But for the reading challenge, I’d like to complete at least six of the ARCs which have been on my Kindle WAY too long (thank you for your patience, authors!)—and of course, for each book read, I have to write and post a review!

September 19th – Give in to the Feeling – 34 pages read.

September 20th – Okay, I cheated (kinda) and stuck in an unexpected book – Take Off Your Pants! Outline Your Books For Faster, Better Writing by Libbie Hawker… and I finished it! Back to our regularly scheduled programming! 😀

September 20th – Fender – 91 pages read.

September 20th – Give in to the Feeling – 39 pages read.

Post the Amazon or Goodreads permalinks from TWO book reviews.

#TacoTuesday

Taco Tuesday with AC! 😉

Taco Tuesday is back! I’ve missed the last couple of weeks, so for those just tuning in, this is a fun way to share your WIPs or published works on the Writer Menu -and/or- share your favorite books on the Readers Menu. Check out the original post HERE for the objectives. There’s absolutely no time limit for you to join in, just remember to leave a pingback to your post in the comments below, so I can check it out!

This week’s ingredient is…

Writer’s Menu

Lettuce:Share anytime money was used, stolen, given, exchanged or otherwise the main topic of conversation in a significant way.

Tessa turned her back to him and started crawling across the mattress, moving things out of her path along the way. Her hand landed on a computer printout that read

Snapped up this idea from blogger-bud, Didi Oviatt! Please stop by Didi Oviatt, Author – and tell her I sent you! 😉


Find a book for each of your initials. I’m using books from my Review page!

F – Four (The Republic #2) by Archer Kay Leah

E – East to West by Lolita London

L – Long Time Coming (Hot Rods Book 8) by Jayne Rylon

I – If I Stayed (Let Love In)(Amish Romance) by Becca Fisher

C – Complexity (The Kinky Connect Chronicles #4) by Harper Miller

I – If Only in My Dreams (Seven Brides Seven Brothers #5) by Belle Calhoune

A – Avarice: A Hell on Earth Novella by A.C. Melody

Count your age along your bookshelf: What book is it?

Number 56 is Lucian Bane’s Reginald Bones.

Reginald Bones

Pick a book set in your city/country.

Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks. The ending tears me apart, but still love the story!

Nights in Rodanthe

Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to.

It is a purely fictional town, but after reading Farrah Rochon’s six-book series located in Maplesville, I’m always wondering why I can’t find a sleepy little southern town like that. Moments in Maplesville (Bundle Edition)

Moments in Maplesville cover

Pick a book that’s your favorite color.

Purple is my favorite color and I’m going to choose MY book, In the Best Interest of the Child, since the cover was made especially for me! *Shameless self-promotion!*In the Best Interest of the Child cover

Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

Without a doubt, Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye! I was a teenager and before that book, I read mostly mysteries and fairy tales. But The Bluest Eye was the first book that had me bawling like a baby and connecting with Morrison’s use of simile and hyperbole. She counts it as one of her lesser works, but for me, it’s simply the best!

The Bluest Eye Cover

Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?

The Millionaire’s Regret by Nicholas Field! And no, it’s not about some brooding, dominant, rich guy romancing some silly broad! It’s a Suspense/Thriller…which is what I had a problem with – no suspense, no thrills. I tried THREE times to read this book. It was so dry and uneventful, I’d move on to something else. I hate DNFs and tried a fourth time and stuck with it…and was rewarded with a great story and the MOTHER of all plot twists! It’s not the best book I’ve ever read, but it is tightly written…once you get past page thirty or so, however, the plot twist IS the best I’ve ever read. It’s a shame this author didn’t continue writing. (My review!)

The Millionaire's Regret cover

Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?

Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideals in America by Ibram X. Kendi. If I can make it through a nearly six hundred page book about ideals, beliefs, and practices that only serve to destroy, I will more than deserve the several drinks I’ll have after I finish.

Stamped from the Beginning
