Do Secondary Stories Distract You From the Main Plot?

Do Secondary Stories Distract You From the Main Plot?

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I recently binge read the Killer Instincts series by Elle Kennedy during the holidays and I realized one thing. If done right, secondary stories are actually not distracting at all! Hold up, what?! A little bit of background here. I absolutely LOATHE secondary stories especially if they are secondary romances when I am reading a romance title. One of my pet peeves is when the secondary characters’ romance overtakes the main romance! In fact, I have read a couple of books that turned into DNFs because of this.   One example is A Most Scandalous Proposal by […]

Spoiler Alerts: When is it okay to talk about it?

Spoiler Alerts: When is it okay to talk about it?

Let’s talk about anything bookish! The other day while I writing a review and adding spoiler tags, a question suddenly popped into my head (like it does ALL.THE.TIME).  How long should one NOT spoil a plot? Before you go on reading, I would like to warn you that there are a few spoilers in this post so proceed with caution! I am a little on the fence about this one because I rely mostly on books/audiobooks borrowed from the library.  And other than receiving ARCs, I hardly purchase anything that’s hot off the press.  So I am not as updated […]

Do You Make New Year’s Resolutions?

Do You Make New Year’s Resolutions?

Let’s talk about anything bookish, or not! Ah, welcome to the new year! So, what usually happens during this time of year? RESOLUTIONS! *shudder* THAT word scares me to pieces! Well, only because I ALMOST ALWAYS do not follow my resolutions. My 2016 New Years Resolutions, have not come to fruition and I actually forgot one of those resolutions from DAY 1! Figures. I’m really not one to make a resolution because: Once I make them, I don’t follow through. I think this goes for everything that I set my mind to. I always end up running the other way once […]

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

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

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 Discussion: 5 Reasons Why I Read the About Me Page

Bookish Discussion: 5 Reasons Why I Read the About Me Page

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Happy Monday, Wormies!  This week, I wanted to talk about the about page.  Does anybody every bother reading it?  Do you even read it?  I honestly do! It seems like every blog has an about page, right?  But how many bloggers actually read it?  I don’t keep track of my about page stats (maybe I should) so I’m not sure how many bloggers actually read my about page. I am a fan of the about page!  Especially when it’s bloggers that I follow!  Does that sound creepy?  I don’t think so!  It’s not like I’m going stalker […]
