Why I’m Not a Fan of Bookish Subscription Boxes

Why I’m Not a Fan of Bookish Subscription Boxes

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I had this post drafted (but not finished) for a few weeks now but I read Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s post on Book Box Subscriptions so I decided to hold off and change my post a bit. I used to subscribe to a few bookish subscription boxes a few years ago. However, I really think that they aren’t worth it, to me anyway. While I would love to continue subscribing to these boxes, I just don’t think it is practical for me to do so. And here’s why.   The Books I am […]

Historical Romance Retreat Wrap-Up

Historical Romance Retreat Wrap-Up

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Finally, I’m sharing my wrap-up post for this AMAZING EVENT! I was mostly in vacation mode in the month of September and the first couple of weeks in October had me catching up to real life! Anyway, I had an awesome time at the Historical Romance Retreat (HRR)! This is the first bookish event that I attended for ALL THE DAYS and I LOVED it so much! I have been to other bookish events, but normally, I would always get the weekend pass instead of the full event! The Hotel HRR was held at the historic Mission Inn […]

Unique Romance Nicknames that I Absolutely Adore

Unique Romance Nicknames that I Absolutely Adore

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Happy Friday, Wormies! Today, I wanted to talk about unique romance nicknames! For those of you who don’t follow me on Facebook, Pierre and I have a unique nickname for each other. We call each other Boss (I know, it’s weird). This was from one of our inside jokes from waaay back when we first started hanging out together and it stuck. I don’t believe I’ve ever called Pierre by his real name often. It really sounds weird when I call him by his real name. It is also awkward since I can’t call my […]

I’m Not a Fan of Long Book Synopsis

I’m Not a Fan of Long Book Synopsis

Let’s talk about anything bookish! There’s this trend that I noticed fairly recently – the really long book synopsis found on the back of the book. Or in most cases, on Goodreads. See, here’s the thing. I love reading the synopsis before deciding to buy a book. The best synopses I’ve read have been done concisely and can hook me with just those few words. But here’s what I’ve noticed: the really long synopsis! Uhmm, what’s up with that? Some of these long synopses basically tell everything that happens in the book from start to finish, sort-of spoiling the plot […]

Bookstagram Props That Don’t Break the Bank

Bookstagram Props That Don’t Break the Bank

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Bookstagram props are one of the things that always make me jealous of other book bloggers because I want all those pretty things! This is also going to be a pretty long post! The last few weeks have been awesome for me on Instagram because of #romancestagram! It’s such an awesome community of romance readers sharing their favorite books! I can’t tell you how many books I’ve already added to my TBR already. It’s not even funny! Anyway, this is the inspiration for my post! I was really insecure and intimidated by all the […]

Bookish Tips when Your Partner is an Anime Fan

Bookish Tips when Your Partner is an Anime Fan

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Hello, Wormies! Pierre was home for the last couple of weeks and we spent a lot of time together. An incident last week inspired this post and I was LOLing while writing this post. Since Pierre and I don’t have a lot of similar hobbies, we have found reasons to spend time with each other while doing different things. #oppositesattract With the near 100-degree weather we had over the last couple of weeks, we haven’t been outside the house at all! So, when he’s not cooking up a storm, he’s watching Anime! Unfortunately, I don’t like watching […]

Do You Leave Comments on Book Reviews?

Do You Leave Comments on Book Reviews?

Let’s talk about anything bookish! A few months ago, I wrote about commenting on blog posts. However, in the last few weeks, I got to thinking. I don’t really get many comments on my book reviews. And this IS a book blog, right? So, this got me wondering, do you leave comments on book reviews? This made me think – do I comment on book reviews on other blogs? Why yes, I do… sometimes! I have also found that a few bloggers comment on my book review posts! Ultimately, book review posts are not popular on my blog if I just […]

Badly Explain Your Favorite Books

Badly Explain Your Favorite Books

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   How do you explain your favorite books to someone who hasn’t read them yet? Do you go into great detail about the plot, the characters the conflict? Or you just tell them that the book is good and to read the blurb? Well, someone on my online book club OSRBC (Old School Romance Book Club) asked everyone to badly explain their favorite books. I joined in and I had so much fun writing them. Which brings me to the topic of this blog post. I will be sharing 10 of my favorite books and will badly […]
