Should You Tag Authors when Sharing Positive Book Reviews?

Should You Tag Authors when Sharing Positive Book Reviews?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   I wrote a post about authors responding to reviews – positive or negative – and I am at that point where my views have partially changed! Not drastically, mind you! Just about tagging authors in ANY review of their books. See, I follow a lot of authors on Twitter, not just for news about their books but their thoughts, among other things. A lot of the authors are actually pretty funny on Twitter or very informative. Which brings me to the current topic – should we EVEN tag authors in positive reviews now? My […]

I’m Burned Out + 5 Easy Peasy Steps to Get Out of It

I’m Burned Out + 5 Easy Peasy Steps to Get Out of It

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Hello Wormies! It’s yet another post about me whining about not reding enough and nor blogging enough i.e. I am burnt out. It normally doesn’t happen to me often but for some reason, this year is really not my year at all! I even wrote a blog post on creating a blogging schedule that will work for you, but apparently, it’s not working for me! So, as you may have noticed, I have been posting less and less in the last couple of months! I know it’s horrible of me but yeah, I have to […]

My Great-Grandmother Was My Bookish Influencer

My Great-Grandmother Was My Bookish Influencer

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Happy Monday, Wormies! I want to apologize for being MIA last week because – @adulting. However, that time offline got me thinking about who influenced me to read. There really isn’t a clear answer since I don’t really remember much of my earlier years. But I do remember my childhood and the stories and of course, the books that I read. Most of all, I remember my great-grandmother who told me stories. Let’s back up a bit and let me tell you a little bit about my childhood. I was basically raised by a whole […]

I’m not As Well Read as You Think

I’m not As Well Read as You Think

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   It’s another Monday, Wormies! It’s another Monday and we have another bookish discussion. This time, I am looking into myself for this one! I have been active on Bookstagram in the last few months and I can’t believe all the books that have been recommended to me! And it is quite astounding that I HAVE NOT READ A LOT OF THESE BOOKS! What? You say. Haven’t you been reading since you were young? Yes! Yes, I have! But honestly, I haven’t been reading as extensively as other readers and there are a few reasons […]

Should Authors Respond to Reviews of their Books?

Should Authors Respond to Reviews of their Books?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Happy Monday, Wormies! Welcome to another bookish discussion! Today is special because this topic is one that was requested by an author who comments a lot on my blog! Full disclosure, I do not know the author personally and have only interacted with her through my blog and I have also never read any of the books she has written. She asked me to comment on authors responding to positive book reviews, but I decided to discuss both positive and negative reviews and book reviews as a whole. Before we get started, I want to […]

How Long Should Your Book Review Be?

How Long Should Your Book Review Be?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   A few weeks ago, my bookish friends and I were discussing the correct review length. Of course, the question: how long should your book review be? was asked. So, I decided to discuss this topic with you – book reviewers and readers! A few years ago, I also wrote about different book review styles but I don’t think I addressed the length!   What is the right length of a book review? There really isn’t a right answer to this question. I’ve always had this thought about making the length of my reviews the […]

Get to Know Me All Over Again OR NOT!

Get to Know Me All Over Again OR NOT!

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Happy Monday, Bookworms! I’m writing this post on the first Saturday of 2019. However, I didn’t plan to write this post. I actually wrote a draft of a post for today but decided to scrap it after I read a very disturbing news in the bookish community. I think you know what I’m talking about. If not, there are already a few articles talking about it, bookish Twitter has been talking about it, so it’s a simple Google away. But this is not what my post is all about. If you read the title of this […]
