Bookish Discussion: Why I’m Perfectly Fine if I don’t Receive an ARC

Bookish Discussion: Why I’m Perfectly Fine if I don’t Receive an ARC

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I have a confession to make. I do not really care if I get a physical Advance Reader Copy (ARC) or not. SERIOUSLY. I know there have been a lot (trust me) of drama surrounding ARCs, the grabbiness of bloggers that I have to admit have some truth to it, plus some that actually sell ARCs at an exorbitant price! Not only that, but there is also such a thing as ARC ENVY. Oh, I admit to being envious of all the ARCs that some bloggers get waaaaay in advance. And yes, I was initially […]

Bookish Discussions: Things I Learned From Blogging Part 2

Bookish Discussions: Things I Learned From Blogging Part 2

Let’s talk about anything bookish! This is part 2 in my Things I Learned from Blogging series. Last week, I talked about the things I learned managing my own WordPress blog. Hopefully, that helped you guys think about trying the self-hosted WordPress platform or finding new tips in managing your own self-hosted WP blog. I wanted to go and dive right into the Blogging Community! I have “met” a few awesome bloggers from different parts of the world through book blogging and it is SUPER awesome! Since I moved to book blogging, I also learned about the vastness of the book blogging […]

Bookish Discussions: Things I Learned from Blogging Part 1

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I have been blogging on and off since 2007 but I started book blogging about three years ago and I’m not looking back. I have been thinking of changing my blog a few times but for one reason or another, I keep coming back to book blogging and the book community in general. I guess you could say that I have found my niche. Of course, I’m not one of the popular bloggers and my blog is among the thousands out there already, but I like to think that I have a few loyal visitors (THANK […]

Bookish Discussions: The Thing About Novellas

Bookish Discussions: The Thing About Novellas

Let’s talk about anything bookish! A couple of days ago, one of my bookish friends and I were talking about binge reading. Well, this conversation led to talking about novellas and how she reads them as genre cleansers. This got me thinking because I personally am not a fan of novellas. At. All. I have my reasons but first, let us explore the reasons why they are awesome (cue: Everything is Awesome). Anthologies I think the first novellas I read were anthologies written by a group of authors writing in the same genre. I distinctly remember purchasing Where’s My Hero years ago which […]

Bookish Discussions: Why I love Series Books AND Stand-alones

Bookish Discussions: Why I love Series Books AND Stand-alones

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Happy Monday, bookworms, this is my first time in joining Conversations (hosted by Geraldine @ Corraling Books & Joann @ Fiddler Blue). I thought, what better way to do that than during my Monday discussions feature! This topic really intrigued me because I love both series and stand-alones.  So, let me break it down for you! Authors get to tell their story thoroughly, which means more for the reader. The great thing about series books is that you don’t get a quick ending.  The author can expand on the storyline and can even expand the world.  Think about it this […]

Bookish Discussion:  Why I’m Wary of Hyped Books

Bookish Discussion: Why I’m Wary of Hyped Books

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Happy Monday, Bookworms!  Today, I’m going to be talking about hyped books!  More to the point: let me give you reasons why I am WARY about reading hyped books. I ALMOST always get disappointed. I’ve read a few hyped books that DID NOT meet my expectations.  I mean, after all the fuss and squees and positive reviews that I’ve read, my expectations are generally high.  Unfortunately, some of them were just too much overly hyped. I just can’t START reading them. So there’s this really popular book.  This book has been on my radar for […]
