Favorite February 2020 Covers

Top Three Tuesday is my spin on Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl   It’s almost the end of the month and I am here sharing my favorite covers for February! I find that I am liking illustrated covers more and more! If you see the newer illustrated covers, you’ll see how better they are than those a couple of years ago. Don’t you agree?   Why I love this I have a love/hate reaction to this cover. I love it because it absolutely screams Cinderella but it also doesn’t scream historical romance. I don’t exactly know what Avon is […]

How I Edit Bookstagram Photos Using Free Apps

How I Edit Bookstagram Photos Using Free Apps

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   I promised to have this post up last week, but work happened and I have been getting home late last week, so I didn’t have time to screen record a sample of how I edit a photo on the app. The good news is, I have a screen recording of that so I hope that is helpful to you! If you like my aesthetic, you can follow me on Instagram! I use all these apps (at some point) to edit bookstagram photos on my phone. I prefer editing them on my phone because I […]

I need more time to read! Currently Reading 2020 Weeks 7-8

Bookish updates in the last 2 weeks   How has everyone been? I was extremely busy last week and have been coming home at around 7 almost every night that I didn’t have the energy to blog! Reading has gone down the drain, but I managed to finish a couple of books! We also saw Sonic the Hedgehog yesterday and I thought it was okay. Sonic looked well animated, though. I think pushing back the release date and reanimating Sonic worked well for them! I also finished reading Chasing Cassandra last week and it was good! Not as much as I hoped it […]

Favorite Historical Romance Books Published Before 1995

Top Three Tuesday is my spin on Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl   It’s no secret that I started reading romance – historical romance, in particular – when I was about 11 years old. I first picked Harlequin Historicals and then discovered even more old school romances and I was hooked! Here are some of my favorites from when I was in high school!   Why I love this Ah, there are so many things to love with Dreaming of You. This is the first historical romance where both heroine and hero were non-aristocrats! Not only that, Sara saved […]

How I Take Bookstagram Photos Using My Mobile Phone

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Bookstagram is undoubtedly where a lot of romance readers (that I know, anyway) hang out and interact with one another. Heck, I’m more active there commenting-wise that in the book blogosphere. In fact, one of my popular posts is my post Bookstagram Props that don’t Break the Bank. This time, I will show you how I take Bookstagram photos using my mobile phone. Disclaimer: I am not a professional photographer (not even close) and I do not claim to take the most spectacular photos, but I do have a style that works and I […]

It’s Been a While. Currently Reading 2020 Weeks 5-6

Bookish updates in the last 2 weeks   It’s been a while since I wrote a Currently Reading update! Honestly, I wasn’t sure if I would be continuing with this feature, but I also miss discussing my reading updates with you! I have been trying to tweak my nightly schedule so I have time to blog and interact on #Bookstagram. For now, it’s working and I love that I am posting more often. Pierre is out of town for work at the moment and this has also given me days of me time! The only problem I have is that the cats […]
