Favorite Young Adult Audiobooks

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   I love listening to YA books in audio format. In fact, I don’t think I would have finished some of the books if not for audiobooks!

I shared my favorite romance narrators last week so this time, we’re hitting YA!   Here are my favorite YA audiobooks Graceling by Kristin Cashore read by Full Cast Audio Graceling was extra special to me because this was one […]

The Case of Authors Behaving Badly

The Case of Authors Behaving Badly

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Hello, Wormies! A lot has happened in the reading community and as much as I wanted to weigh in on all the brouhaha, I have mostly remained silent on social media. Yesterday, I caved and wrote a longish statement on my personal Facebook wall. But that’s not what my post is all about. Today, I want to talk about authors behaving badly. There have probably been quite a few incidents in the past that have caused uproars in the bookish community as a whole. Clearly, it has become increasingly prevalent because of social media and […]

The Series, Standalone & Companion Books Conundrum

The Series, Standalone & Companion Books Conundrum

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Hello, Wormies! I rewatched Wreck-it Ralph and Big Hero Six this weekend and I was bawling! Oh man, the emotions in these Pixar movies! I mean, at least I didn’t watch Up again! Anyway, back to the topic. Since Wreck-it Ralph has a sequel, I thought about series, standalone and companion books. I’m not sure if there has been any debate about this topic, but I have thoughts about series books. Reasons Why I Think Series Books are the Best With series books, authors are able to expand the plot and the world. Amazing world-building can be expanded and enhanced […]

Budget Bookworm: Two Library Apps I Use Regularly

Budget Bookworm: Two Library Apps I Use Regularly

Saving moolah on awesome reads! Happy National Library Week! For bookworms, this week is the chance to say thank you to the awesome institution that is the public library system and the librarians who run them! As someone who grew up in a country where the public library system isn’t as developed as the US, I cannot begin to express my thanks to this system. I am one bookworm that uses the LA Public Library System to it’s fullest. I fact, LAPL has saved me a lot of money! I regularly borrow ebooks and audiobooks digitally and never have to step […]

I’m a serial book hopper… and it works, for the most part

I’m a serial book hopper… and it works, for the most part

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Hello, my name is Ezrah and I am a serial book hopper. I define book hopper as someone who reads multiple books at one time and regularly jumps from one book to the next while not finishing the current book being read. I know, that’s crazy. But for the most part, it works well for me, especially when I am in a book slump.   At this moment, I am currently unable to focus on a specific book and I’m juggling 5 books at the same time. Currently, it’s 4 new books and 2 re-reads. […]

My Go-to Comfort Reads

My Go-to Comfort Reads

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Happy Monday, Wormies! It’s been a while since I wrote a discussion post so when I got sick this weekend, I decided to tackle the subject of comfort reads. See, we all have go-to books that are auto reads when we are feeling down, or sick. In my case, I have a few books that I read when I am sick or when I am depressed.While some people watch movies or binge-watch TV shows, I binge read. These books always get me out of my funk one hundred percent of the time! Aside from talking […]

I Wish Blog Email Subscriptions Had a Format

I Wish Blog Email Subscriptions Had a Format

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   One of the ways I love to support my favorite blogs is to subscribe to their RSS via email. I ONLY subscribe via email to those blogs I ACTUALLY read and visit regularly. Because of this, I have come across a slight issue that is bothering me: I wish blog email subscriptions had a format. But before I delve into the issues, I want to talk about the reasons why I prefer email subscriptions. The reasonS being: There are just too many contests/giveaways that require you to follow via [insert follow option here] I don’t […]
