Ultimate Gift Guide for Romance Readers 2019 Edition

Let’s talk about anything bookish! We’re about 44 days to go until Christmas, and I wanted to share another ultimate gift guide for romance readers!

Pag-Ibig: A Filipino-American Romance Panel

Pag-Ibig: A Filipino-American Romance Panel

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Happy Monday, Wormies! I finally survived the first romance panel that I moderated! Yes, there was a lot of fangirling involved! A few months ago, I was asked by these amazing authors: Mia Hopkins, Maida Malby, Tif Marcelo, and Sarah Smith to moderate their panel at The Ripped Bodice. It was an honor to moderate this panel because all these ladies are Filipino-American authors writing about characters of color and representing the Filipino, and Filipino-American culture!   We had an amazing time talking about books, romance and Filipino & Filipino American representation in literature. I love that everyone […]

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Happy Indigenous People Day everyone! Here in California, we have renamed this holiday, so it may be different where you’re at. We also have a three-day weekend so it’s my day off today! YAY! I decided to write another post about romance titles because I absolutely judge my romance books based on their titles! Well, not all the time, but I do look at the title first, then the cover, then the blurb before I decide if I want to read it or not. So, here are my favorite romance title buzz words!   Punny Titles […]

What Makes a Book a Keeper?

What Makes a Book a Keeper?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   If you are like me who reads a lot of books, you have read a lot of books. For the most part, I have most of the books that I love digitally – ebooks on my Kindle and audiobooks on my cloud. But I do love to collect physical books. However, I always struggle with what books I keep and what books I don’t need physical copies of. It also doesn’t help that I get a lot of free ARCs or finished copies from publishers. This means that I have a lot of books […]

My Ten Most Read Authors

My Ten Most Read Authors

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   I’ve thought about the authors that I read the most books from and I was quite surprised at the outcome! I kinda had an idea of who the authors were because I did this post a few years ago. I was pleasantly surprised when I tallied and came up with this list since some of the authors have remained and I have added new authors on this list. Obviously all of the authors mentioned on this list are romance authors. However, they write in different genres, except for a few that write multiple romance […]
