Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by  That Artsy Reader Girl .  This week's topic is Bookish Wishes.  Today is Jana's birthday over at That Artsy Reader Girl's birthday, so this week we're celebrating with her by granting the book wishes of your friends.  I've never done anything like this for myself, but the following are ten books are books I'd love to own and my birthday is coming right up in just over a month as well.  All of titles I've shared below are linked to Goodreads, but my Amazon Wishlist can be found here .  I would be tickled pink if anyone decided to grant one of my wishes.  Thank you very much in advance!

If you would like to participate in Music Monday, please join the link up by sharing your post's url. Happy Monday everyone!  This week I'm sharing some of my favorite tracks/ scenes from the movie Whisper of the Heart (1995) .  I watched the movie in the original Japanese a little while ago and absolutely fell in love with it.  I'll admit that I was surprised how big of a role the song Country Roads plays in it.  Check out the opening sequence featuring the Olivia Newton-John

Sunday Funday: Name-a-Thon TBR

Happy Sunday everyone! Today, I'm sharing my July reading plans.  I'll be taking part a brand new readathon called the Name-a-Thon  ( Twitter ).  It's hosted by Liv  and Olive will run for the entire month of July.  As you can probably guess by the name of this readathon, it's name themed.  The rules are pretty simple: you read books that start with the same initial of the letters of your name.  You can choose whatever name you like from first name, nickname, online name, blog name, etc, but you if you have more than one of the same letter in your name, you have to choose separate books for them.  No using the same book for multiple letters.  I'm planning on being ambitious using my first name and my blog name for a grand total of 14 books.  No guarantee I'll be able to get to all of these, but I'll give it my best try.  Without further ado keep reading to see what I plan on reading.
