New to Me Authors: August & September 2022

At the end of each year, I try to put together a list of “New to Me Authors” I read during the year. It takes forever, so I decided to borrow an idea and a graphic from Lucy at Bookworm Blogger. At the end of each month I will post all the new to me authors from that month. It is now the end of September and I forgot to post at the end of August, so let’s see what new authors I read over the last two months. I will say, many of these new to me authors were wonderful and some have huge backlists, so my TBR is definitely growing.

God Bless the Queen

I saw this poem on Facebook and it made me cry. I wanted to share it.

๐Ÿ˜ช
Phillip came to me today,
and said it was time to go.
I looked at him and smiled,
as i whispered that “I know”

I then turned and looked behind me,
and seen I was asleep.
All my Family were around me,
and I could hear them weep.

I gently touched each shoulder,
with Phillip by my side.
Then I turned away and walked,
with My Angel guide.

Phillip held my hand,
as he lead the way,
to a world where King’s and Queens,
are Monarch’s every day.

I was given a crown to wear
or a Halo known by some.
The difference is up here,
they are worn by everyone.

I felt a sense of peace,
my reign had seen its end.
70 years I had served my Country,
as the peoples friend.

Thank you for the years,
for all your time and love.
Now I am one of two again,
in our Palace up above.

This poem I believe was written by a lady called Joanne Boyle

6 signs itโ€™s time to stop reading that book (and thatโ€™s OK)

I know a lot of people struggle with DNFing a book or audiobook. It is something I have done more often lately, but it is still tough, especially if it is an ARC. I found this post on ย For the Love of Readingย , through Scribd. Check it out and see if these are signs you could use to DNF a book. Thanks to G.G. Andrew for this post.

For me, #5. It violates your personal dealbreakers is the one that causes me to DNF a book most often.

What about you? Do you close a book due to any of these signs?

What I Baked Today: Peach Crisp ๐Ÿ‘

Here in Essex County in Southern Ontario, we are in the middle of peach season. I love peaches, but I bought a few too many and needed to use up some before they got too ripe. I love “crisps” so decided to make peach crisp. It was delicious and I will make it again.

New to Me Authors: July 2022

At the end of each year, I try to put together a list of “New to Me Authors” I read during the year. It takes forever, so I decided to borrow an idea and a graphic from Lucy at Bookworm Blogger. At the end of each month I will post all the new to me authors from that month. It is now the end of June, so let’s see what new authors I read. I will say, many of these new to me authors were wonderful and some have huge backlists, so my TBR is definitely growing.
