How do those other bloggers get all those books? What are they doing that I need to be doing? Without further delay… the secret to getting ARCs is… there is no secret. I’ll […]

6 Reasons I Might Unfollow You

You’re sitting on your computer, going through your social media pages to update your stats, checking your progress, when you notice that one of those numbers has gone down instead of up.

When 140 Characters Isn’t Enough

It’s crazy how the littlest things can spark so many emotions. This morning, I woke up to a friend telling a few of us that someone in the book community burned a book on a different media platform. My first feeling was that of horror. How could someone feel justified in doing such a terrible thing? Then came the anger. […]

Let’s Chat About the Book Community

When it comes down to it, this past year has left an impact on our wonderful community. So much so that we wanted to talk a bit about some of the things that stood out to us, both the good and the bad. We’re all one big family here and families aren’t without their ups and downs, so let’s chat […]
