Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...

QUICK NOTE...Update: 10/10/19

Good news: We're back home! Bad news: It's like Apocalypse Heck Part III.

The one year Hurricane Michael anniversary is already here. Where did the time go...and yet it feels like forever. You don't realize how much you take for granted until it's all gone. I'm grateful my family/fur babies survived, and I know they are just "things", but sadly, in this life, those "things" help us get through every day. So yes, "happy" yet not. Every day is still a struggle...not just for my family, but so many others.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

BBAW: Day 1: Book Blog Shout-outs

The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and....the last car that passed by just SPLASHED me with muddy water!  (just kidding)  No,'s anything but "Snow White" like weather here...think more dark and stormy night, just in daytime hours.  Despite the weather and the fact that it is a Monday (grumble, grumble, grumble), it is a day worth celebrating for it is the start of.....

That's right!  Celebrating all things books and bloggers, this week was designed to kick start the sharing power of bloggers everywhere while celebrating the literary treasures we love.  So, as I am participating in my very first BBAW ever, there will be posts popping up this week in response to some of the activities suggested and I hope you will join in too!  (Let's face it, it's fun when I comment, but more when YOU do!)

Day one posts are to highlight book blogs across the net that did not make the shortlist for voting.  I for one am ALL for this as there are so many out there, not everyone could make the cut...but alas, that means some are overlooked!  Allow me to highlight a few that I more frequently visit....for those not listed below, check out my sidebar post that's a bit more goes!

  • A Bibliophile's Bookshelf - Run by Bella, Jane Austen fan extraordinare, her reviews run the the gambit from classic to newer releases to something in between.

  • Book Nerds - Never afraid to speak her mind, even if sometimes indecisive, Ana aims for simplistic design with well-voiced opinions.

  • BriMeetsBooks - Focused on children's books, Bri endeavors to share the world of reading with the future of tomorrow while giving her followers something to think about.

  • Ink and Paper - One of Jo's multiple blogs, this one aims to review fantasy novels as well as provide readers with a library to die for each week in her Belle's Library posts.

  • Melanie's Musings - With thought provoking questions posed along with book reviews, Melanie is sure to get the conversation started among visitors to her blog.

  • Today's Adventure - NotNessie's review structure makes for an easy breeze through to find your next TBR pile addition, not to mention the amazing contests!
So if you are looking for some new places to visit in the book blogging community, I'd definitely recommend checking these guys out for your next reading pleasure!  Happy BBAW everyone!
