New Authors in 2017

I feel like this year I was introduced to a bunch of new authors. Almost all of the books I read this year were from new authors. Donna Alward was my most-read author of the year with her Darling, VT series.

 

 

Who were your new authors in 2017?

Top Ten Tuesday: I Hope Santa Brings…

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme feature created at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists. For the list of past topics and future schedule, click here.


I Hope Santa Brings…

There are a handful of books I can think of that I want (sooner rather than later).

I also really want a Fit Bit, but I don’t know which one to get. Maybe you guys can help? I want it primarily to measure my sleep. An Amazon gift card would also be nice. 🙂

I have a list of 10 or so Disney movies that I still have not added to my collection that I need to. I also want a set of Micro Line pens for my bullet journal. The last thing I want is a personal electromagnetic shock therapy device for my back. You put the little pads all over the place

 

What are you looking forward to seeing under your tree?

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit

Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy

A British wizarding school established around the 10th century and located in the Highlands of Scotland. It takes students from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and Ireland. Hogwarts is considered to be one of the finest magical institutions in the wizarding world.

The castle is located in the mountains near a loch. The precise location of the school can never be uncovered because it was rendered Unplottable. To Muggles, the school looks like an old abandoned castle. Most wizarding schools’ locations are protected in order to prevent their ways of teaching being revealed, as well as protect the students and schools themselves from harm.

29875909Sanctuary Island 

When I read Tessa’s story in Close to Home, I fell in love with the little town of Sanctuary Island and its residents. Patty, the local bakery owner; Quinn, the town’s silly sweetheart; Marcus, the prodigal sun returned. The way it was described with being able to see certain aspects of town from different corners and Main Street reminded me of the little town of Cabot Cove (which is actually Mendocino, California) in Murder, She Wrote.

Hawaii 

Maui. Oh my lanta. I already know it is beautiful, but some of the descriptions about Hana area made me need to go there. There is nothing better than a breathtaking setting, no matter the time of day.

 

Walnut Grove

The Little House series books are set in a new place for almost every book, and Walnut Grove is the location of the fourth book (On the Banks of Plum Creek). The TV series, starring Michael Landon as Pa, was set in Walnut Grove and I fell further in love with Laura Ingalls Wilder, her family, and Walnut Grove.

Nantucket

I think all of Elin Hilderbrand’s novels are set on her beloved Nantucket. There’s something about summer on a small island that is so appealing and a perfect place to visit. It does make for a perfect summer island getaway.

 

Scotland and England 

England is often written as this idyllic location for romance stories full of quaint villages and small towns, evidenced by many TV shows. Whether it really holds up to its image or not, I do want to one day visit England and Scotland for their historical significance.

What are your favorites so far?
