A Map of My Reading Tastes through the Years

A Map of My Reading Tastes through the Years

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   It’s not surprising when your reading tastes have changed. In fact, I am one of those whose reading tastes have changed significantly over the years. I wrote a post listing a genre that I don’t read anymore. I also wrote a post explaining why my genre preferences have changed. But I haven’t really explained the whys. Which brings me to today’s topic – a map of my reading tastes through the years. It’s hard to explain the change that each individual goes through throughout their life. I don’t want to be profound or anything, […]

Social Media Platforms that I Use

Social Media Platforms that I Use

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Let’s talk about Social Media platforms! Thank you to Renee @ Renne’s Bookcase for this topic! I never really thought about discussing this topic because I am actually not active in all the popular platforms! However, I have tried a few of them! But let’s talk about which ones I use on a daily basis – or at least, regularly. This means that I am active on that platform and I actually enjoy using it.   I’ve been using WordPress since 2008 and I have always been using it! I’ve been blogging since the […]

What Bookish Topic Do You Want to Talk About?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Hey, Wormies! It’s been a while since I was online!

I am asking for your assistance in coming up with bookish topics! One of my favorite bookish posts is a discussion post! I’ve enjoyed the interactions that have come out of my discussions – and I hope […]

Should You Tag Authors when Sharing Positive Book Reviews?

Should You Tag Authors when Sharing Positive Book Reviews?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   I wrote a post about authors responding to reviews – positive or negative – and I am at that point where my views have partially changed! Not drastically, mind you! Just about tagging authors in ANY review of their books. See, I follow a lot of authors on Twitter, not just for news about their books but their thoughts, among other things. A lot of the authors are actually pretty funny on Twitter or very informative. Which brings me to the current topic – should we EVEN tag authors in positive reviews now? My […]

I’m Burned Out + 5 Easy Peasy Steps to Get Out of It

I’m Burned Out + 5 Easy Peasy Steps to Get Out of It

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Hello Wormies! It’s yet another post about me whining about not reding enough and nor blogging enough i.e. I am burnt out. It normally doesn’t happen to me often but for some reason, this year is really not my year at all! I even wrote a blog post on creating a blogging schedule that will work for you, but apparently, it’s not working for me! So, as you may have noticed, I have been posting less and less in the last couple of months! I know it’s horrible of me but yeah, I have to […]

My Great-Grandmother Was My Bookish Influencer

My Great-Grandmother Was My Bookish Influencer

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Happy Monday, Wormies! I want to apologize for being MIA last week because – @adulting. However, that time offline got me thinking about who influenced me to read. There really isn’t a clear answer since I don’t really remember much of my earlier years. But I do remember my childhood and the stories and of course, the books that I read. Most of all, I remember my great-grandmother who told me stories. Let’s back up a bit and let me tell you a little bit about my childhood. I was basically raised by a whole […]

I’m not As Well Read as You Think

I’m not As Well Read as You Think

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   It’s another Monday, Wormies! It’s another Monday and we have another bookish discussion. This time, I am looking into myself for this one! I have been active on Bookstagram in the last few months and I can’t believe all the books that have been recommended to me! And it is quite astounding that I HAVE NOT READ A LOT OF THESE BOOKS! What? You say. Haven’t you been reading since you were young? Yes! Yes, I have! But honestly, I haven’t been reading as extensively as other readers and there are a few reasons […]

Should Authors Respond to Reviews of their Books?

Should Authors Respond to Reviews of their Books?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Happy Monday, Wormies! Welcome to another bookish discussion! Today is special because this topic is one that was requested by an author who comments a lot on my blog! Full disclosure, I do not know the author personally and have only interacted with her through my blog and I have also never read any of the books she has written. She asked me to comment on authors responding to positive book reviews, but I decided to discuss both positive and negative reviews and book reviews as a whole. Before we get started, I want to […]
