Ultimate Gift Guide for Romance Readers 2019 Edition

Ultimate Gift Guide for Romance Readers 2019 Edition

Let’s talk about anything bookish! We’re about 44 days to go until Christmas, and I wanted to share another ultimate gift guide for romance readers! I’ve been doing this gift guide series at least every year now and I’m really glad that we now have more items for the romance reader in your life! As a romance reader, it’s been hard to find the right fandom merch for me because the industry mostly focuses on a lot of fantasy and YA. So here are a few shops that sell romance / romance-inspired merch! If you want to see my other […]

Halloween Romance Recommendations

Halloween Romance Recommendations

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   I think I’ve been saying this over and over again. But I can’t really read or watch horror. That said when Halloween comes, I always try to read romance books that have a scary or creepy feel to it. If you’re interested, you can read my favorite non-scary Halloween movies post and non-horror reads to read for Halloween.   Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy   Fated by Rebecca Zanetti Paranormal Romance   The City of Brass by […]

Pag-Ibig: A Filipino-American Romance Panel

Pag-Ibig: A Filipino-American Romance Panel

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Happy Monday, Wormies! I finally survived the first romance panel that I moderated! Yes, there was a lot of fangirling involved! A few months ago, I was asked by these amazing authors: Mia Hopkins, Maida Malby, Tif Marcelo, and Sarah Smith to moderate their panel at The Ripped Bodice. It was an honor to moderate this panel because all these ladies are Filipino-American authors writing about characters of color and representing the Filipino, and Filipino-American culture!   We had an amazing time talking about books, romance and Filipino & Filipino American representation in literature. I love that everyone […]

Books I Enjoyed That Are Outside My Comfort Zone

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   I’ve made it past the long weekend! Yes, Labor Day here in the US was yesterday and it was my adulting day. Booo! I actually took a couple of days off last week because of my heart issues and my trip to the ER so I am up and running and ready to go to work tomorrow! This year is another year of firsts. I am a creature of habit and because of that, I don’t tend to read outside this […]

Must Have Bookish Apps

Must Have Bookish Apps

Let’s talk about anything bookish! For a few years now, I’ve slowly been moving to digital formats when reading (or listening) to books. I’ve also been listening to audiobooks more, however this year, there’s about an equal split between audio and ebooks. Anyway, I wanted to share my favorite bookish apps that bookworms need to have if you don’t have it already. For Library Readers Libby & Hoopla Apps If you love to read library books, get the Libby app (run by Overdrive) AND the Hoopla app. I wrote detailed descriptions for Libby and Hoopla, so you can go ahead and […]

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, […]

All I Want for Christmas: Bookish Edition

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   Christmas is almost here! I can’t wait to spend a lot of moolah purchasing a lot of bookish items! Although, I have to say that Pierre wins the award of buying me bookish stuff that I didn’t know I wanted!

If you want to see the other bookish posts/wishlists that I have done, […]
