We Need More Diversity in Audiobooks

We Need More Diversity in Audiobooks

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   If you follow me on Twitter, you would know that I have been talking a bit about diversity in audiobooks – as in getting diverse narrators to read audiobooks, or at least make an effort to pronounce non-English words correctly. I’m a bit triggered about this because I have been on the other end of being ridiculed for not pronouncing English words correctly. News flash, I did not grow up in America. I immigrated here when I was 21. While my accent is not that thick, I still pronounce some words incorrectly and I […]

My Most Read Romance Authors of the Decade

My Most Read Romance Authors of the Decade

  Happy Monday, Wormies! I’ve been busy making this post for you! It took a bit of time to do because I had to wade through my Goodreads tracker to get the actual numbers! I was inspired by Francesca’s video @ Under the Covers Book Blog Youtube channel where she shared her most read authors of the decade. Please go and watch her video because she has some amazing authors on her list! Looking back to the books that I read in the past decade was a bit surprising. For one, I wasn’t really tracking my reading seriously until a […]

Sometimes, You Just Need a Good Cry

Sometimes, You Just Need a Good Cry

Let’s talk about anything bookish! This is a different discussion post because it is a little bit personal. Well, not in a personal PERSONAL, if you know what I mean, but something that I want to share with everyone. I am an extremely emotional reader. And really, I tear up at minor things – usually meet-cutes! hahaha But seriously, though. Sometimes, I DO search out emotional reads purposely so I can ugly cry. I have no idea why I do that, but I just do! I am an extremely emotional reader and a mood reader to boot, so both are a crazy combo! In fact, Mr. He […]

How much do you spend on books?

How much do you spend on books?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   I know I’ve been MIA for a bit but I am now back and hopefully, ready for this new year of blogging! Today, I want to talk about how much we spend on books. GASP! Yes, I want to confront our book-buying habits. Well, my personal book-buying habits. In the last year or so, I have started to change my book-buying habits. This change really started when I started to collect more books (right?) that it has started to overtake my shelves. Story of our lives, right? I’ve subscribed to a couple of digital subscriptions – […]

Favorite Romance Title Buzz Words

Favorite Romance Title Buzz Words

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 […]
