A confession: I'm terrible at keeping up with my NetGalley books. I can be super excited to read something, but ultimately I'm more tempted by physical books than eBooks. Despite this, I have some amazing stuff just waiting for me on my Kindle. I pulled a couple of titles here to not only show off the books I have, but to encourage me to pick them up.
In the blogging community, we talk about books all the time. But sometimes we get caught up in reading and reviewing the same books as everyone else, and great books can slip beneath our radar. I wanted to take the opportunity to talk about a few books I really loved, but I think are underrated in the blogging community.
It's discussion time again! One of the side effects of blogging is that I'm becoming more and more aware that other people have vastly different reading habits from myself. What a weird concept. One thing I've realised is the fact that everyone reads series in a different way.
Ah, the most dreaded situation for many bloggers and reviewers. You read a book that you absolutely hated, for whatever reason, and now you have to review it. To make things even worse, it was sent to you by the publisher! What do you do? Do you write the negative review? Do you post negative reviews at all?
It’s the beginning of a new year and time to set your new reading challenges. Regardless of whether you track your reading through Goodreads or via spreadsheet, whether you have decided to stick to a single genre or expand your horizons throughout the year, many readers have a reading goal they want to reach by the end of the year. How do you track your reading habits?
I think many of book bloggers have been there before. You go overboard with requesting books and your TBR pile is threatening to crush you -- there’s no way you can read all of these books in a timely fashion. You’re so busy that you can’t possibly dedicate as much time as you’d like to your various platforms. Real life strikes and you find yourself unable or unwilling to keep up with your reading or your blogs.
It’s time for another discussion post! I’ve seen a lot of people talking about how book blogging and BookTube have changed their reading habits. I think that I’m a completely different reader than I was at the beginning of the year, when I started this channel. So here are the ways that book blogging have changed the way I read!
So I’ve been seeing this Twitter thing going around in which you tweet one bookish opinion per like your tweet gets. I have a LOT of opinions and 140 characters is just too short, so I thought I’d ask you guys to join in on the fun!
So, I have a problem. When I like something, I’ll go completely overboard and love it to death. If I like a song, I’ll play it on repeat until I cannot stand to listen any longer (1997 was a tough year – to this day I cannot listen to ‘My Heart Will Go On’ because Little Justine just loved it so much). It turns out, I do the same thing with books.
Series are popular for authors and publishers, every genre book that's released lately seems to be part of a series. But what do readers prefer?
