Make Me Read It Readathon

Make Me Read It Readathon

I’m sick with the common cold.  OH God!  This is the THIRD time this year!  OH PLEASE!  I think the stress is getting to me!  Plus I have a very busy week next week, so that isn’t helping me. Anyway, since I’ve been pretty down in the dumps the last 2 days, I decided to join the Make Me Read It Readathon hosted by Ely @ Tea and Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley.  This is all because of my friend Annika @ Hiding Books‘ fault.  Blame her for this and not my being sick! This readathon will be from July […]

ABEA: Blog Aesthetics

ABEA: Blog Aesthetics

  I haven’t really thought about branding as much in the years since I started blogging.  Back then, it was my own personal spot on the internet to share my thoughts and (gasp!) journal. Through the years, my style has evolved and the overall feel of my blog has mostly remained the same.  I have mostly used the same theme and colors and overall look of this blog in the last four years. Let’s take a look at the evolution of I Heart Romance & YA.  I have been pretty much consistent with my colors with various changes on my […]

ABEA: An Intro Post

ABEA: An Intro Post

  Hello, Armchair BEA-ers!  Unfortunately for us, we are unable to attend BEA this week but fortunately for us, we can still participate!  I am running a little late in introducing myself, so I’m trying to catch up! So, without further ado, let me introduce myself! What is the name you prefer to use? On the blog, I usually go by Zeee, but I answer to my real name Ezrah, as well!  I’m starting to slowly use my real name in intros because I’m getting used to it now (I mean, this is after 30 something years of having this […]

6 Things on My Bloggiesta To Do List

6 Things on My Bloggiesta To Do List

Becuase I’m hosting a mini-challenge for the Spring Bloggiesta,  I’m going to join in the festivities! Obviously, I have quite a few things that I need to do with my blog (see sign on top of blog), so this is a great opportunity to start. Ezrah’s TO DO List Fix 3 months worth of blog posts – If you have been following me for a while, you would know that I had a malware scare last year AND had to delete my blog and start from scratch.  I was able to save all my posts, thank God, but lost all […]

Bloggiesta Challenge: Try a New Review Style + Giveaway

Bloggiesta Challenge: Try a New Review Style + Giveaway

Hello, sweets!  Welcome to the Spring Bloggiesta!  This is the very first time that I have participated in the #Bloggiesta festivities, and I am a little nervous (please, don’t throw rotten fruit my way, kay?). The real reason why I decided to be a mini-challenge host is that I LOVE this topic.  Now, I think disclaimers are needed here.  I am not an expert in reviewing and I am sure that there are other bloggers better than me in this sort of thing, but I want to share the different review styles that I personally use.  I will be sharing […]

2016 Love-a-Thon: Let’s Have Coffee Together

February 20, 12AM EST – February 22, 12AM EST Hosted by: Alexa (Alexa Loves Books), Cee (The Novel Hermit), Hazel (Stay Bookish) & Mel (The Daily Prophecy) I am interrupting my Monday discussion to talk about #LoveAThon!  I really had fun connecting with a lot of book bloggers, bookstagrammers, and booktubers!  I can’t believe I was a solitary blogger for A LONG TIME! Today, I’d like to talk about authors, characters, or even bloggers, that I would want to have tea with!  Since I don’t really like tea (THE HORROR!), I decided to invite them for coffee!  Plus cafe + books […]
