Throwback Thursday #13 – Salt to the Sea

Throwback Thursday #13 – Salt to the Sea

Greetings you guys! It’s a rainy Thursday afternoon here in South Africa and all we want to do, is get into bed and snuggle with a great book. But we hear the call of duty as well and we first want to do a Throwback Thursday Post. That fun meme we only get to every now and then. The Chocolate Lady’s #Throwback Thursday takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month. Yes, there is a linky and it will remain open until she uploads the new one. Thank Goodness. My first and last sometimes gets very confused. Your post must highlight one of your previously published book reviews and Davida encourages other participants to do the same. Add the link to your post and remember to link back to The Chocolate Lady’s Book Blog And do not forget to #ThrowbackThursday! The review that we are looking back to today, is for a book that my Mommy loved so much. She says she can’t believe that she’s still only read this one by the very talented author, Ruta Sepetys: Paperback  390 pages Read 09 August 2016 Published February 2016 Goodreads Blurb: Winter, 1945.

Throwback Thursday #12 – Froelich’s Ladder

Greetings you guys! Yes, I know we’ve promised to do a throwback Thursday more regularly, but books tend to get in the way of that. Last week Thursday, we were busy planning our Throwback Thursday post and just quickly wanted to make sure that we have all our previous Throwback Thursday posts updated on the WordPress site. While updating 11/22/63, we remember we still have The Pink Suit on our TBR and well, the rest is history. But welcome to our version and latest edition of Throwback Thursday! The Chocolate Lady’s #Throwback Thursday takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month. Yes, there is a linky and it will remain open until she uploads the new one. Thank Goodness. My first and last sometimes gets very confused. Your post must highlight one of your previously published book reviews and Davida encourages other participants to do the same. Add the link to your post and remember to link back to The Chocolate Lady’s Book Blog And do not forget to #ThrowbackThursday!   The 12th review my Mommy has written, was on a book she enjoyed ever so much and she is actually quite sad to see that it never really took […]

Throwback Thursday #11 – The Companionship Of Harold Fry and Miss Queenie Hennessy

Greetings you guys! It’s a public holiday here in South Africa today, so we finally have time to do another Throwback Thursday. After being on WordPress for 9 months now, it really is time to start pulling through all those reviews that are not on our archive list. What better way to do that than to join Davida @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review’s fun link-up meme, Throwback Thursday. The Chocolate Lady’s #Throwback Thursday takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month. Yes, there is a linky and it will remain open until she uploads the new one. Thank Goodness. My first and last sometimes gets very confused. Your post must highlight one of your previously published book reviews and Davida encourages other participants to do the same. Add the link to your post and remember to link back to The Chocolate Lady’s Book Blog And do not forget to #ThrowbackThursday!   Yes, I know our Thursdays are a bit messed up. At least it’s Thursday. For today we will take a look at our first and actually up to date, our last, companion reads: Aaah, my Mommy says she’s feeling very nostalgic after seeing this review pop up […]

Throwback Thursday #10 – After You

Throwback Thursday #10 – After You

Greetings you guys! Gosh, we haven’t done a Throwback Thursday ever since we’ve switched to WordPress. I honestly can’t give you clear reason for that either. Probably admin. We hate admin and we had to add the new graphic to all the previous posts and make sure the old reviews are on the new blog and …. And that’s the main reason! I’ve realized that we are never going to pull in all the old reviews to our stunning new Ultimate Book Blogger Plug-in if I don’t make a plan around it. So joining in with Throwback Thursday, is our masterplan. The Chocolate Lady’s #Throwback Thursday takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month. Yes, there is a linky and it will remain open until she uploads the new one. Thank Goodness. My first and last sometimes gets very confused. Your post must highlight one of your previously published book reviews and Davida encourages other participants to do the same. Add the link to your post and remember to link back to The Chocolate Lady’s Book Blog And do not forget to #ThrowbackThursday! It’s  not quite yet the last Thursday of the month, but if we do a […]

Throwback Thursday # 9 – The Benefits of Death

Greetings Humans! It’s a beautiful, sun shining day here in South Africa and we are looking forward to a weekend filled with sunshine and springy vibes. But before we can have weekend, we first need to get through Thursday. Not better way than with a Throwback Thursday post! The Chocolate Lady’s #Throwback Thursday takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month. Yes, there is a linky and it will remain open until she uploads the new one.

Our Throwback Thursday book for today, was my Mommy’s very first Netgalley review book. This book was read and reviewed on her previous blog and she thought she was the cat’s whiskers for getting book from Netgalley. We still feel like we are the […]

Throwback Thursday # 8 – 11/22/63

Throwback Thursday # 8 – 11/22/63

 You guys! It’s the middle of August and it’s only our third Throwback Thursday post we manage for the year. Good grief. I don’t know if that is sad, embarrassing, or just plain bad luck. Wednesdays and Thursdays tend to be very hectic and school for my Mommy and I guess that is the actual main excuse. My Mommy has spend quite a lot of time sorting out our bookshelves, Kindle and TBR file on Goodreads lately. But the best way to keep it sorted, is of course by staying on top of it. And how do we stay on top of it with firmer grip than a tiara on wet hair?  By tracking it on the blog of course. And for that, we need clever people like Davida to host fun memes to guide us in the right direction. The Chocolate Lady’s #Throwback Thursday takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month. Yes, there is a linky and it will remain open until she uploads the new one. Thank Goodness. My first and last sometimes gets very confused.  Your post must highlight one of your previously published book reviews and Davida encourages other participants to […]

Throwback Thursday #4 – When God was a Rabbit

Throwback Thursday #4 – When God was a Rabbit

Gosh I love this time of year! I know it’s only the second time that I experience the Christmas Season, but I can already tell you, it’s the bestest. Don’t you just feel like throwing tinsel and glitter over everything? I can promise you, for the next month, all my Mommy’s header photos will have a Christmas theme. And me of course. It’s Thursday already and the first time my Mommy opens her blog this whole week. Don’t get too excited, we most probably won’t get to it again before next week. Mommy is busy busy. I try my utmost best to give her an attitude, but even I get ignored. But she says she misses you all and we can quickly do a Throwback Thursday. Yea! I’m curled up behind her laptop and she’s typing away. There are so many spins on the idea of Throwback Thursday, but we still like Davida’s idea the most: The Chocolate Lady’s #Throwback Thursday takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month. Yes, there is a linky and it will remain open until she uploads the new one. Thank Goodness. My first and last sometimes gets very confused.  Your post must […]
