8 Authors I Want My Future Children to Read

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Well, we don’t have children yet, but when we do, they will definitely be bookworms! (One can only hope!) Okay, I can’t guarantee that but I will definitely start ’em young and get them to read the books that left a lasting impression on my young mind.

Things I Learned About Myself After Reorganizing My Bookshelf

Things I Learned About Myself After Reorganizing My Bookshelf

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I finally reorganized my shelf for the first time this year! I know some of you reorganize your shelves multiple times a year, but I am not one of those people! (But I’m honestly JEALOUS of them) The process of reorganizing my shelf was a tough one. On a whim, I bought a new shelf and added it to the already two shelves in our living room. Mind you, we don’t have a HUGE space and we only have one big room which doubles as our living room/dining room. And now, it now my library! Naturally, […]

How to Increase Your Netgalley Health

What struck me one day was a conversation I had with one of my friends who said that her Netgalley feedback ration was soooo low, and how could she raise it higher? On Netgalley, the suggested feedback ration is 80% or higher. This means that you get a higher chance of getting approved when you request galleys. This also means that you have sent reviews/feedback on the books that you have requested. My current Netgalley feedback ratio is 86%. But it wasn’t always that way! […]

Why It Sucks Being a Mood Reader

Let’s talk about anything bookish! If you have been following my blog, you will know that I am a mood reader. What this means is that I pick a book based on my moods or what I’m currently feeling. This also means that I am unable to follow any sort of TBR or any sort of themed challenge where I pick the books that I will be reading for a specified period. I joined the ARC August challenge last month and it was clearly obvious based on my challenge results that I ultimately failed the challenge. See, I lined up books that […]

Budget Bookworm: Where to Acquire Free Reads

Budget Bookworm: Where to Acquire Free Reads

Saving moolah while you read! This year, I have been trying very hard to curb my one-click urge and book splurges. For the most part, I have been pretty successful so I decided to share my success with all the budget bookworms out there! For this first feature, I wanted to share where I get my free reads! The awesome thing about the US is that we have libraries! Use it, people! This is where you can borrow books, audiobooks, magazines, graphic novels, and comics for free. I have a library card from The Los Angeles Public Library and it enables me to […]

How Long Do You Review a Book After Reading It?

How Long Do You Review a Book After Reading It?

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Now that I am back and blogging and also reviewing a thought occurred to me. How long do I review a book after reading it? I normally don’t get anxious about my ever increasing number of books to be reviewed, but I do try to keep up. I know some bloggers who review books every day which is freaking amazing and I wonder at how they seem to do it. I need to know! Well, I looked into my to be reviewed pile and I discovered that I don’t review books immediately after reading it! Ha! Figures. […]
