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, […]

Slay Those Series Challenge & Giveaway!

A reading challenge hosted by @wildandwonderfulreads @jaimearkin @kimberlyfayereads @leighannewrites @pnrbookloverreviews @romanceschmomance @thebookdisciple @zerisse   As most of you know, I found this awesome group of romance reading ladies on Instagram and I decided to join them for this November challenge!

So there are 3 parts to this challenge, there is the reading challenge (i.e. how many series are you going to read), the photo challenge (i.e. challenge yourself […]

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 […]
