Top Ten Tuesday – Best of 2014 So Far

1 Comment

I rarely take part in the Broke and Bookish Top Ten Tuesdays, but I felt compelled to participate here.  And as a demonstration of how utterly nerdy I am, I had to share a picture of my office marker board where I keep track of all of the books.  It proves especially handy for a quick glance at the year and the books I have given five stars to…

markerboardBehold, Top Ten Books I’ve read so far this year:

I live in a Chicago suburb with my husband and a house full of books. Book collecting, reading, and reviewing consume my life. I have a special affinity for all things Alice in Wonderland. I began my education at Carthage College, wanting to be an English teacher. Eventually I decided that Carthage and I weren’t a good fit anymore, so I transferred to North Park University, where I realized I didn’t want to be a teacher. So I finished my education with a degree in English with a writing concentration. I was always a voracious reader and wrote my first review in April 2007. I don’t remember why exactly I decided to write a review, only that I had just finished The Agony and the Ecstasy and had a strong feeling that I needed to express how I felt about it. This inspired me to write reviews about each book I wrote and after posting on Amazon for two years, I was invited into the Amazon Vine program. I am also an active reviewer/member of Goodreads and enjoy being an active member of the online book community.
