Save Yourself the Headache (The Blogger Edition)

I don’t claim to be an expert on (book) blogging but after 5+ years you tend to learn something (at least I hope you do because otherwise I’m a bit worried). For today’s chat, I want to list some of the tips I learned over the years. Prior to these, blogging was a headache. A chore. It wasn’t fun because there were so many little things […]

Are You a Novel Knight? Apply to Join the Round Table!

Ladies and gentlemen of the Bookdom! It has come to pass that I am in need of aid for my quest to share a love of books with the world. Okay, so here’s the deal: unless something goes horribly wrong, I will be starting grad school for science education in January. My free time (aka reading, blogging, etc.) is going to be taking a massive […]

I’ve Reached the Point of Too Much Hate

A lot has changed since I joined the book community over five years ago. It’s crazy because it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long. I’ve noticed everyone seems to be more close-knit. There are bonds formed that, with the help of things like social media, have been realized in person which is super awesome. I discover more and more people every day promoting the […]

#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 […]

I have a tendency to stay up well past when I should, contemplating this or that, so now you can join in! Background I was inspired to write […]

#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 […]
