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 […]

Blog for Pleasure, Not Pressure

Blog for Pleasure, Not Pressure

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I’ve been trying to write this post for a while now and I’m glad that I am finally going to talk about this! See, a couple of months ago, I read a few posts by book bloggers about getting overwhelmed with blogging. This is totally understandable, especially if you are a new blogger (bookish or otherwise). In fact, there are a ton of articles talking about growing your email lists, increasing your stats and visits and whatnot and it does get overwhelming. In fact, I really don’t have a good advice for you other than […]

The Case of Authors Behaving Badly

The Case of Authors Behaving Badly

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Hello, Wormies! A lot has happened in the reading community and as much as I wanted to weigh in on all the brouhaha, I have mostly remained silent on social media. Yesterday, I caved and wrote a longish statement on my personal Facebook wall. But that’s not what my post is all about. Today, I want to talk about authors behaving badly. There have probably been quite a few incidents in the past that have caused uproars in the bookish community as a whole. Clearly, it has become increasingly prevalent because of social media and […]
