How Do You Manage Blogging, Reading and Real Life?

How Do You Manage Blogging, Reading and Real Life?

Let’s talk about anything bookish! So, I have been thinking about all those AMAZING bloggers who manage to blog, read, and live their real life? I mean, they are just doing the IMPOSSIBLE! Or did they sell their souls to some otherworldy being so they can do ALL OF THESE?! Or do they have any elves working for them at night to magically come up with reviews and blog posts? I NEED TO KNOW! Here is what these INCREDIBLE BEINGS have done ALL AT THE SAME TIME They manage to read a TON of books and REVIEW them, too! ? They […]

Bookish Discussion: My Love/Hate Relationship with Author Interactions on Social Media

Bookish Discussion: My Love/Hate Relationship with Author Interactions on Social Media

Let’s talk about anything bookish! It has been over four years since I started interacting with my favorite authors on social media. Some more often than others. Lately, though, I have been more active that normal. Let me tell you a secret. I have a love/hate relationship with author interaction on social media. Let’s not even start with the issue with authors behaving badly. I think I am pretty lucky to have avoided that part personally. Despite all the horror stories that pop up about author-reader interactions, I have a few reasons why I love interacting with my favorite authors. ONE. […]

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 […]
