Do Secondary Stories Distract You From the Main Plot?

Do Secondary Stories Distract You From the Main Plot?

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I recently binge read the Killer Instincts series by Elle Kennedy during the holidays and I realized one thing. If done right, secondary stories are actually not distracting at all! Hold up, what?! A little bit of background here. I absolutely LOATHE secondary stories especially if they are secondary romances when I am reading a romance title. One of my pet peeves is when the secondary characters’ romance overtakes the main romance! In fact, I have read a couple of books that turned into DNFs because of this.   One example is A Most Scandalous Proposal by […]

2016 Titles I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To

2016 Titles I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Happy Tuesday, Wormies! If you read my 2016 Year End Stats a couple of weeks ago, you will know that I read A LOT of back titles. As a result, I totally ignored a few titles that were my MUST READS for 2016. The horror, I know, but as you know, I am a mood reader, and these titles didn’t really catch my mood. Anyway, I promise (fingers crossed) to read them this time around. Here’s hoping that I will finally read these titles in 2017. Heartless by Marissa Meyer I actually received […]

Spoiler Alerts: When is it okay to talk about it?

Spoiler Alerts: When is it okay to talk about it?

Let’s talk about anything bookish! The other day while I writing a review and adding spoiler tags, a question suddenly popped into my head (like it does ALL.THE.TIME).  How long should one NOT spoil a plot? Before you go on reading, I would like to warn you that there are a few spoilers in this post so proceed with caution! I am a little on the fence about this one because I rely mostly on books/audiobooks borrowed from the library.  And other than receiving ARCs, I hardly purchase anything that’s hot off the press.  So I am not as updated […]

Currently Reading Week 1

Currently Reading Week 1

Sharing my thoughts on this weeks’ reads Hello, Wormies! Welcomes to the very first Currently Reading blog post this year! I have been in a semi-binge reading fest over the holidays and now, I have started to slow down. Also, my short vacation is over and I have to work so… #adulting So let’s take a look at what I’ve been reading this year. I actually promised myself to read historical romances first for the Historical Romance Reading Challenge but I’m just not feeling it, unfortunately. I put 4 books on hold 2 weeks into January! This does not bode well for me because […]

Do You Make New Year’s Resolutions?

Do You Make New Year’s Resolutions?

Let’s talk about anything bookish, or not! Ah, welcome to the new year! So, what usually happens during this time of year? RESOLUTIONS! *shudder* THAT word scares me to pieces! Well, only because I ALMOST ALWAYS do not follow my resolutions. My 2016 New Years Resolutions, have not come to fruition and I actually forgot one of those resolutions from DAY 1! Figures. I’m really not one to make a resolution because: Once I make them, I don’t follow through. I think this goes for everything that I set my mind to. I always end up running the other way once […]

Hosted by Hosted by Rachel @ Fiktshun, Jaime @ Two Chicks on Books, Nancy @ Tales of a Ravenous Reader & Bridget @ Dark Faerie Tales Last year, I featured my 10 favorite adult romance novels because I had already written a general top 10 favorite books of 2015 post.

I have also started to branch out to different genres, so there IS […]

Sharing my thoughts on this weeks’ reads Even though I had a rough time the last few months, I actually blew my Goodreads Challenge through the roof!
