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 […]

Emotionally Charged and Real! Only A Breath Apart by Katie McGarry [ARC Review]

Emotionally Charged and Real! Only A Breath Apart by Katie McGarry [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Holy moly, this book! Only a Breath Apart was a test in emotion and angst that I did have a hard time finishing but ultimately enjoyed! Trigger Warning: there is physical, verbal, emotional, and mental abuse in this book. Only a Breath Apart was everything I expected and Katie McGarry did not disappoint! This book touched me in all the right places despite the hard subject matter and tone of the book. I expected angst but […]

I Love Lollipop! Playing for Keeps by Jill Shalvis [ARC Review + Giveaway]

I Love Lollipop! Playing for Keeps by Jill Shalvis [ARC Review + Giveaway]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Hello! This is my very first Jill Shalvis book and it won’t be my last! Sure, I’ve seen The Trouble with Mistletoe but I haven’t really read her books! Playing for Keeps ticked all my boxes! There is a dog, a tattoo artist, and a geek! But wait! The tattoo artist is the heroine! Also, there is an enemies to lovers trope! The plot is simple, Caleb and Sadie rescue a dog one rainy night and […]

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 […]

Steamy, Sporty, & LOL! Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey [Audiobook Review]

Steamy, Sporty, & LOL! Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey [Audiobook Review]

I’ve been looking for soccer themed romance books to read and a lot of romance readers recommended Scoring Wilder. This book was a fun and sexy sports romance read with a touch of the forbidden! If you don’t know already, Pierre watches Premier League Mornings (this is a top-level English football league system), he’s also watching the Philippine Team Azkals compete in the Asian Cup (our first year to qualify), so this theme is so on point! Anyway, what I do love about Scoring Wilder is Kinsley and Becca’s friendship! Man, these two were snarky and fun and basically, I […]

How Long Should Your Book Review Be?

How Long Should Your Book Review Be?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   A few weeks ago, my bookish friends and I were discussing the correct review length. Of course, the question: how long should your book review be? was asked. So, I decided to discuss this topic with you – book reviewers and readers! A few years ago, I also wrote about different book review styles but I don’t think I addressed the length!   What is the right length of a book review? There really isn’t a right answer to this question. I’ve always had this thought about making the length of my reviews the […]
