Will You Ever Read the Book if the Movie Sucked?

Will You Ever Read the Book if the Movie Sucked?

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Happy Monday, Wormies! I know I didn’t have a discussion last week because I was too sick to even think about writing a post. Too sick, that I even fell asleep at the 25-minute mark while watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (this is a spoiler movie review, btw)! Which brings me to my discussion today. Will you ever READ the book if the movie you saw based on the book SUCKED? Or will you read the book first no matter what? This thought crossed my mind when I saw Before I Fall a couple of weeks […]

Do You Ever Proofread Your Posts?

Do You Ever Proofread Your Posts?

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I recently re-read a few of my older posts (and even recent ones), and I discovered SIGNIFICANT errors! Errors in grammar, spelling, and even missing words! When I find these errors, I immediately edit said post while tamping down my embarrassment. Now, this got me to thinking. How often to we really proof read our posts before it goes live? I mean, I have seen legit publications and news sites publish something that looks like it was never proofread! Or maybe if it did, it just fell through the cracks and got missed? Maybe? Which again […]

Bookish Discussion: My Love/Hate Relationship with Author Interactions on Social Media

Bookish Discussion: My Love/Hate Relationship with Author Interactions on Social Media

Let’s talk about anything bookish! It has been over four years since I started interacting with my favorite authors on social media. Some more often than others. Lately, though, I have been more active that normal. Let me tell you a secret. I have a love/hate relationship with author interaction on social media. Let’s not even start with the issue with authors behaving badly. I think I am pretty lucky to have avoided that part personally. Despite all the horror stories that pop up about author-reader interactions, I have a few reasons why I love interacting with my favorite authors. ONE. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
