#FF & Thoughts on DNF Reviews

What is your take on DNF books. Do you review them? Choose not to review them?   Sometimes I like a book. Sometimes it’s just not for me. via GIPHY I have a personal policy when it comes to reading. Each book gets 50 pages (less if it’s under 200 pages total). I don’t know where the number 50 came from but usually I can […]

Regrets from the Early Blogging Days

Over 5 years ago, I stumbled into the book blogiverse and was immediately swept away. I’d never imagined anything like this could exist which is funny to me now because I have a blog, I have followers, I follow other blogs, keep up with authors, all of it. But I think back to those first few years and there are definitely things I wished I’d […]

#FF & Criteria for a Misbehaving Author/Reviewer

#FF & Criteria for a Misbehaving Author/Reviewer

What’s your criteria of a misbehaving author/reviewer? Oh, goodness… I think a big issue I see with authors is when they take personal offense to a review or comment, and then proceed to either attack the writer/reviewer or complain about it on social media. I understand that whatever was said may be upsetting but everyone is entitled to their opinion and as long as they […]

#FF & Short Stories: Love ’em or Hate ’em

#FF & Short Stories: Love ’em or Hate ’em

Short Stories (as companions to series): What do you love about them and hate about them? Added short stories are great, especially at the end of a series when you want to know what happened after The End but the story is over so there isn’t enough to have a whole new book. Also, I love short stories that provide backstory for a side character you’d otherwise […]

#FF & Biggest Pet Peeves with Books

What are some of your biggest pet peeves with books? Aside from the glaringly obnoxious love triangle that continues to appear in a lot of young adult fiction, I think one of my biggest issues is the addition of romance as a subplot when it’s not needed or really warranted (also add poorly-written romance subplots). Don’t get me long, I love romances both as a genre and […]
