We Need More Diversity in Audiobooks

We Need More Diversity in Audiobooks

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   If you follow me on Twitter, you would know that I have been talking a bit about diversity in audiobooks – as in getting diverse narrators to read audiobooks, or at least make an effort to pronounce non-English words correctly. I’m a bit triggered about this because I have been on the other end of being ridiculed for not pronouncing English words correctly. News flash, I did not grow up in America. I immigrated here when I was 21. While my accent is not that thick, I still pronounce some words incorrectly and I […]

My Most Read Romance Authors of the Decade

My Most Read Romance Authors of the Decade

  Happy Monday, Wormies! I’ve been busy making this post for you! It took a bit of time to do because I had to wade through my Goodreads tracker to get the actual numbers! I was inspired by Francesca’s video @ Under the Covers Book Blog Youtube channel where she shared her most read authors of the decade. Please go and watch her video because she has some amazing authors on her list! Looking back to the books that I read in the past decade was a bit surprising. For one, I wasn’t really tracking my reading seriously until a […]

How I Take Bookstagram Photos Using My Mobile Phone

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 […]

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 […]

How much do you spend on books?

How much do you spend on books?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   I know I’ve been MIA for a bit but I am now back and hopefully, ready for this new year of blogging! Today, I want to talk about how much we spend on books. GASP! Yes, I want to confront our book-buying habits. Well, my personal book-buying habits. In the last year or so, I have started to change my book-buying habits. This change really started when I started to collect more books (right?) that it has started to overtake my shelves. Story of our lives, right? I’ve subscribed to a couple of digital subscriptions – […]
