Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee has a New Look.

Over the weekend Norma and I decided to do a little work on our blog. In the process, I did a little whoops and I changed the theme of our blog.  That’s when Norma a little stressed with changing our theme came in and had to rescue us and a few hours later created our new look. We are curious as to what you all think.  What do you think of our new look?

We also decided since we have a new look maybe it’s time to officially introduce some of our Traveling Sisters to you all.  We are going to start off introducing some of our TS you have probably seen a bit here on our blog.

Most of you know Lindsay our very first Traveling Sister and whose’s reviews you have seen quite regularly on here and who has recently officially joined our blog.

You have also seen Kaceey and Susanne’s reviews here on our blog.  Kaceey was our second TS with Susanne soon after.  And then we started our TS reading group and have grown from there to about 20 active Traveling Sisters who read with us regularly.

We have shared some of Kristin’s reviews here on the blog as well and will be sharing many more of her reviews. She is going to start writing a bit more for our blog too soon. Kristin joined the TS a few months ago.   I have also shared Jan’s reviews.  Jan has been a TS right from the start and we have enjoyed many reads with her.  Recently Christina joined us and we just started posting some of her reviews.

We have shared many links to a few of our TS who have their own blogs and who also read with us regularly. Carol and Marialyce joined the TS soon after we started the group.  Debra joined the group a few months ago.

Carol from Bookaria

Marialyce from yaya_reads

Debra from Open Book Post

We will be introducing more of our TS as we continue on our Travels reading with our Traveling Sisters.

We have had an amazing first year reading with our Traveling Sisters and we look forward to reading and discussing so many more books with them.

What do you think of our new look? Drop us a comment!  We would love to hear from you all!

Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee, Welcome our Traveling Sister, Lindsay to our Blog! #travelingsistersread #travelingfriendsread #thetravelingbloggers

You are going to be seeing a little more from Lindsay from now on!  She is absolutely thrilled and so excited to be joining our blog and the blogging community.

It has happened Brenda has stretched herself thin and has fallen in a coulee dragging Norma with her. We are buried in ARC’S and books that we just can’t get to.  It’s quite wonderful but life and family responsibilities do need us and we have to find our way out.

So on to the exciting part.  Lindsay our very first Traveling Sister and whose’s reviews you see quite regularly on this blog has crossed over the coulee and has officially joined the Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee blog. Some of you will see her around the community as L Lostinacoulee and you will also see more of her presence here on the blog.

We want to welcome Lindsay officially to our blog and we are so excited to be working more closely with you – on what we love to do!  Thank you Lindsay for officially joining Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee!!

Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Book Blogs/Bookish Websites

ttt-big2

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

We are just now joining in on the Top Ten Tuesday and this is our first post.  This week’s Top Ten topic Favourite Book Blogs/Bookish Websites.

Of course, when I saw this topic I knew I had to join in.  Norma and I have a love for sharing and a big part of our blog is sharing reviews and links to our Traveling Sisters reviews.  We recently have started a weekly post to share links to bloggers reviews.

We have so many favorite blogs we follow so this is tough to pick our top ten but here we go here with some of our Top Ten Favourite Book Blogs/Bookish Websites.

I just love Danielle’s discussion posts at Books Vertigo and Tea.  I have learned so much about blogging from her discussion posts.  Her posts are interesting and spark some great discussions.

I love the look of Carol’s blog Bookaria and love the photos of the books she adds.   Her blog is so bright and inviting to read her great reviews.  Carol is a Traveling Sister.

Ann Marie at Lit Wit Wine Dine  We really enjoy Anne Marie’s style of blogging and enjoy reading her posts.  She makes us smile with the energy her blog radiates.

We love reading Nicki’s memes at Secret Library Book Blog  She posts a few of my favorite posts like Links I’ve Enjoyed this Week, WWW Wednesdays and I love reading her reviews.

Lynne at Fictionophile was one of the first bloggers we started following and who first started supporting us.  Norma and I had no idea what we were doing or what we should be doing to grow our blog.  It was so nice to see all those likes on our posts from Lynne.  It took us a bit to figure out we wanted to grow our blog by connecting with bloggers.  We are a little slow sometimes.  lol Lynne reviews crime fiction, author interviews, mystery series, cover, love, bookish thoughts…

Carla at Carla Loves To Read.  I can’t even begin to say how many times Carla has brightened our day with all her likes and comments on our blog.  Her reviews are fun and exciting.  She reviews many different types of genres from children books to Thrillers.

Deanna at Dee’s Rad Reads and Reviews was one of the first friends on Goodreads we connected and interacted with and she was one of the first bloggers to inspire Norma to start a new blog.  We always enjoy reading all Deanna’s posts.  She has some variety to the posts she does and mostly gravitates to reviewing Thrillers.

Marija at Inside My Library Mind We really like her style and find her posts and blogs very interesting. She mainly reads Literary fiction and Fantasy.

We always look forward to Tina’s posts from Reading Between The Pages and love her reviews.  She always makes us smile with all her support and sharing she does. She mostly reviews mystery/thrillers and historical fiction but will sprinkle in other genres in between.

Marialyce at Yaya_reads is a Traveling Sister and so many of her reviews are Traveling Sisters’ read.  We are excited to see more Favorite Book Blogs/Bookish Websites to add to our list of blogs to follow.  We hope you enjoy or will enjoy in the future some of our Favorite blogs.

So many bloggers we would like to add but we better stick to Ten and continue our Travels throughout our day!
