Hello August. That came around quickly. It was another nice week and I continued to enjoy my staycation. We spent a day at the beach and boardwalk which was nice and it’s tradition so I always enjoy going down the shore. I got good reading time in and finished up reading two more review books. I crocheted, I watched tv and just mostly lounged around.

ttt

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s TTT topic is Freebie “Come up with your own topic!”

Not that I need to add onto my ever growing wishlist, but these are 10 books that recently caught my eye, mostly from fellow blogger blogger recommendations.

Good morning and wow people, it is the last Sunday in July. Summer always goes by so fast. I’m actually on stay-cation for a little now while which has been nice and relaxing.

I love not having to wake up early and rush rush rush. Always rushing. Rushing to work, rushing home, rushing to appointments…it’s exhausting. I’ve de-cluttered my closet, I’ve been lounging around the house, getting in the pool when I feel like it, reading and crocheting…it is great not having a set schedule. We’ve been doing day trips here and there as well so I’ll share pics at the end of this post and next week’s updates post too.

Good morning all. I hope you are having a nice weekend. It has been hot and humid here, on 4th of July the temps hit 90. I prefer this over the bitter cold winter though.

It has been a busy few weeks. I recently got back from vacation. I relished being on vacation. It is always hard getting back to work after time off but that’s life. I mainly did this by the lake for a week:

Top Ten Tuesday 4/30/19: Inspirational/Thought Provoking Book Quotes

ttt

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s TTT topic is “Inspirational/Thought Provoking Book Quotes”.
I love a good book quote. Memorable passages in novels tend to stop me in my tracks while I am reading. I like to re-read them before moving on. I usually highlight the quotes I like on my e-reader or *gasp* I dog ear the pages on my print copies for reference later.

I could list 100 favorites, but these are just 10 Favorite Quotes From Some of My Favorite Books

1. “He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her.” – The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

2. “There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”- The Hobbit by  J. R. R. Tolkien.
