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 […]

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 […]

Extreme Bookish Burnout

Extreme Bookish Burnout

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Hello, Wormies! It’s me again and here we are, almost at the end of the 7th month this year and I finally admit that I am in extreme bookish burnout. I even blogged about what to do to get out of this funk but to no avail! I think this has been coming on in the last few months and I have been harping on and on about it. But this time, I have seriously felt it and I am feeling so overwhelmed! It’s not even blogging anymore, but it has seeped into bookstagram and […]

A Map of My Reading Tastes through the Years

A Map of My Reading Tastes through the Years

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   It’s not surprising when your reading tastes have changed. In fact, I am one of those whose reading tastes have changed significantly over the years. I wrote a post listing a genre that I don’t read anymore. I also wrote a post explaining why my genre preferences have changed. But I haven’t really explained the whys. Which brings me to today’s topic – a map of my reading tastes through the years. It’s hard to explain the change that each individual goes through throughout their life. I don’t want to be profound or anything, […]

What Bookish Topic Do You Want to Talk About?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Hey, Wormies! It’s been a while since I was online! I have a feeling that this is another epic slump/blogging burn-out that has come on since the beginning of this year. In fact, I’ve talked about this over and over and over, you guys are probably sick of hearing it! But this is not what this post is about! I am asking for your assistance in coming up with bookish topics! One of my favorite bookish posts is a discussion post! I’ve enjoyed the interactions that have come out of my discussions – and I hope […]

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 […]
