Would You Rather... #10



The best and worst thing about summer vacation is that I often forget the day and date. Totally forgot it was Wednesday and time for another one of these.


Take your pick!

Stacking the Shelves #24


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature co-hosted by Tynga's Reviews and Reading Reality. It is a chance to showcase all the goodies you've collected throughout the week, whether they're bought on-line or in-store, an ARC or a final copy, borrowed from a friend or the library, physical or digital, etc. Never has my addiction been more obvious than when I am now keeping track of every single book I acquire.

Would You Rather... #9


This is becoming one of my fave things. I love debating the pros and cons of a comfy and not-so-comfy reading nooks.

Top Ten Tuesday #33



Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday, now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week's topic is "Books that awaken the travel bug in me". Safe to say this is another super easy one for me to throw together quick, seeing as how all the places and people I read about are real and I will actually get to see all of these places at some point in my life. One of my favorite types of non-fiction is a special little category I call 'City Biographies', so here are just a few of the many places I can't wait to visit, or visit again.

New York City
26196406 1293804 25622226
13591164 261678 

Only the Parts of France that Have to do With Eleanor of Aquitaine
1890910 1369476 2648992
36252129 5986818 8474660

England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland
(To visit again, especially London - had zero time in there and only saw Windsor, Stonehenge, and Bath on a day trip outside London before flying home. Saw lots of Scotland and Ireland, and now just want to wander to see what I can find that is not typical of tourists, but travelers.)
18114272 3679289 22856108
118001 12440845 29341703
155314 4292162 10153400
17699476 653127
1430474 3048213
888957 29846925 13792737

The Middle East
833470 3083627
438921 14366286

Pompeii
7194528 1727880

All of Egypt
18490780 17378048 400064

Let me know what you think, and leave a link to your TTT so I can stop by and visit.

(If you did not see my previous post, this week is Vacation Bible School at church. I will do my very best to get around to your blogs ASAP, but it may not be as quick as usual. Thanks for understanding!)

There Is No Tired Like VBS-Week Tired...


Image may contain: text

...except "teacher in the first week of school" tired. THAT takes the cake for 'most tired humans ever'.

This week is, as you may have guessed, Vacation Bible School. Our church holds our VBS in the evenings, so working parents can still bring their children and take part in a fun-filled week of activities, games, crafts, and fellowship.

I am a crew leader, which means I am responsible for a small group of children, and taking them around to the different stations, helping them learn about God, and/or grow in their faith. It is exhausting, but it is also pretty amazing. The insights adults can gain from listening to little ones about God and Jesus are pretty great - it is awesome to see how their minds work and process it all.

That being said, I will be a bit scarce this week due to VBS starting last night. I will make sure to reply to comments from First Line Friday on the 8th, and Stacking the Shelves on the 9th. I will do my best to get to everyone's blogs to see their posts as well. I will try to have a "Would You Rather...?" up on Wednesday, but I can make no promises. So, if you feel compelled to, please say a few prayers this week for all the kiddos coming to grow their faith, or learn about Jesus for the first time. Thank you!

Happy Reading!
