Multiple Social Media Pages is a Struggle

Multiple Social Media Pages is a Struggle

I was thinking about this today (while I should have been writing a paper for a class but hey, semester’s almost over right?) and I realized how much of a pain having multiple social media pages is. And I don’t mean multiple accounts on the same website (though that can be a struggle too). So let’s chat. We book bloggers, bookstagrammers, book tubers, book-people of […]

Mini Review – Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp

Mini Review – Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp

I’ll come right out and say that I didn’t request this book, didn’t even know it existed, until it showed up on my porch one day. It’s not one I’d even pick up by choice, to be honest, but I thought that I’d give it a go, expand my reading horizons and all that. . . . and I wish I could get that time […]

Quest to Authordom Revival

Quest to Authordom Revival

Last year, I came up with a plan to feature authors throughout the year as they told their origin stories — how they became published, essentially. Like many things in life, it didn’t go quite as planned though I was able to feature some great people near the beginning of its creation. It’s a blog feature that I think is really interesting, though, so I […]

2018 Beat the Backlist Goals & TBR

I can’t believe that 2017 is almost over! But a new year means a second chance at succeeding at the challenge I set myself last year: to read backlist books. And y’all were so into it that it became a challenge which I’m excited to bring back for 2018! Last year I read over 50 backlist titles which was awesome! But I think I want […]

Welcome to #BeatTheBacklist 2018! (Sign-Ups OPEN)

Hello everyone and happy December!! Can you believe we only have a month left of 2017? Where did it go?! About this time last year, I introduced a reading challenge — Beat the Backlist. It started as a personal goal I set to read more backlist titles in the coming year because I realized that most of my TBR consisted of unreleased/newly released titles. And there’s […]

Review – Saga, Vol. 2 by Brian K Vaughan & Fiona Staples

Review – Saga, Vol. 2 by Brian K Vaughan & Fiona Staples

Alright, so I ventured into the weirdness that is SAGA once more with the second volume. Although the first volume was quite the shock in terms of the strange world and characters (I mean, y’all, these people have some seriously amazing imaginations going into these graphic novels), Volume 2 focused less on the weird and more on the development of the story. Most of Volume […]

#BeatTheBacklist Volume 2 (2018 Edition & Discussion)

About this time last year, we came up with a reading challenge called Beat the Backlist. The idea was to read books that were published prior to the new year (i.e. for this year, anything published before 2017). We wanted to show those books some love just as much as the new releases. In our planning we had all sorts of fun things planned. Monthly […]

Review – To the Duke, with Love by Amelia Grey

Review – To the Duke, with Love by Amelia Grey

The Rakes of St. James are back with another tale of a duke attempting to protect his sister’s reputation after his younger days come back to haunt him. To the Duke, with Love felt a lot like Last Night with the Duke (book 1). Very similar premise, another case of a duke versus  an independent young woman who aren’t in a position to fall in love but do […]
