End of the Year Book Tag

I’ve been thinking about doing a 12 Days of Christmas blog event. So, from now Dec. 12th – Dec. 22nd, I’ll be posting every day. Not all the posts are going to Christmas related, but even so I do hope you enjoy them.

1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

YES! How much time do we have here. I think I’ve started and not finished more books than I’ve finished this year. I am very much an emotional reader and have the attention span of a gnat. So, if the book slows down and I get bored or feel like I’m plodding through I will put it down and move on to something else.

Here are a few:

Friday Fictioneers

I haven’t done a Friday Fictioneers post in a long time and I’m not sure I’ve ever done one here. I had mentioned in an earlier post that I would start sharing some writing, but that never happened. Well, until now. I was inspired by another blogger and a picture. So, here we are. I hope you enjoy!

The ground was hard and cold. As Marie dug she noticed how low the icicles hung from the dead branches. Icy daggers, she thought. Waiting for an unsuspecting victim.

“George come help me.”

He wrenched himself from his perch, took hold of the shovel, scooped up some icy dirt and threw it over his shoulder. Suddenly, something warm pierced his side. He looked down and saw a fresh stream of blood pouring from his chest.

Falling against the tree, he knocked the icy daggers lose.

“Sorry George,” Marie said. “It wouldn’t have worked. They never do.”

Word count: 96

☕️Weekend Coffee Share☕️

Hey everyone! It’s been a couple of weeks since I last dropped in to do a coffee share and I do have a few things to catch you up on.

If we were having coffee. . .

I’d tell you that I’m healing nicely and quickly from my surgery. Although every now and then there is a bit of pain, but that’s to be expected.

I also want to say thank you again for all the well wishes.

If we were having coffee. . .

I’d tell you that I participated for the first time in The Broke and The Bookish Secret Santa.🎅🏻 Continue reading

Tsundoku Bingo Announcement and Sign-Up

If you’re anything like me, you have quite a few books on your TBR pile. Personally, I have books here there and everywhere. And at last count, although not yet complete, I have about 100 books that have yet to be read.

So, if I read one book a month it would take a minimum of 8 years to get through my TBR pile. But here’s the problem I keep buying books and therefore the TBR pile keeps growing.

And since I have an insatiable need to buy books with good intentions to read them, I thought I would start Tsundoku Bingo. Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday – Winter TBR

I haven’t felt much like reading or blogging since my surgery. And if truth be told all I’ve wanted to do is just lie in bed these last few days because I’ve been in a lot of pain. I blame it on Thanksgiving. Must’ve been something I ate.

Anyway, one thing I did do was sign up for two reading challenges for 2018 – The Official TBR Pile Challenge and Mount TBR. Notice the theme? I’m in the process of going through my books and I discovered I have a lot of unread books. Continue reading
