First Line Friday-Song of Silence

We made it to Friday!! It has been a really long week around here. Any plans for the weekend? I plan to do some cleaning out, reading and blogging. Welcome back to First Line Friday hosted by Carrie at Reading is My SuperPower!! I am also linking up with Gilion on Rose City Reader for Book Beginnings. This is where you share the beginning of the book that you are reading. To join in the fun grab the book you are reading and leave a comment with the first line (or your link).  This week I am reading Song of Silence by Cynthia Ruchti. I am reading this one for Chantel's read your bookshelf challenge.

Can't Wait Wednesday-Counterfeit Love

 Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Typically they are books that have not been released yet. This week I am sharing Counterfeit Love by Crystal Caudill. This debut novel is expected to release February 15, 2022. I am excited to read this one because it sounds so good and I love supporting new authors!

Top Ten Tuesday-2021 releases I still need to read

Happy Tuesday my bookish friends!! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We had an ice storm come through on Sunday with a little bit of snow, so we were in Sunday and Monday (not complaining!). I enjoyed the time to read, blog, and spend with my family with very little distractions.Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is 2021 new releases that I was excited to get to, but didn't. At first I didn't think I would have that many, but looking back I actually had 32 books that I was really looking forward to and wanting to read. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and you can head over there to see what our other bookish friends are up to today!

The Top Ten (or you know 12) 2021 New Releases I really wish I had gotten to in 2021:

Unstuffed

 Title: Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind & Soul

Author: Ruth Soukup

Publisher: Zondervan

Genre: Christian Nonfiction, self-help, Christian Living

My Review:

Ruth Soukup is a new author to me. I grabbed this book by the title and cover, not knowing what it was about. I think on some level, we all want to declutter our homes, minds and souls.

Stacking the Shelves #6/Sunday Post #3

Hey bookish friends! I hope your weekend is going well. We are in for some wintry weather tomorrow into Monday and I am looking forward to staying home reading, blogging, and playing some games with my family. I had another surprising week of books coming in, so I thought I would share again this weekend 😀
