#BookBlogWriMo Day 21 – My First Reviews

Welcome to day 21 of #BookBlogWriMo! It’s another flashback day, with the them of reviews this time. Gah! I’m so sick of being sick. It’s even more annoying now that I’m on antibiotics but they haven’t started working yet. I’ve just laid in the dark all day and watched Audrey Hepburn movies waiting for the headache and sore throat to pass. Even the light of my laptop is awful on this headache, and it’s on the lowest brightness setting. But I’m trying to stay ahead of my #BookBlogWriMo posts, so here’s today’s.

#BookBlogWriMo Day 20 – Favorite Books of 2014

Welcome to day 20 of #BookBlogWriMo! Today we’re gonna #TBT to good books from the past year. Ah, throwbacks. I love them. I also love that this is my fourth blog post of the day. Talk about hustle! Holla! It almost makes up for the past few weeks when I favored sleep over blogging. In my defense, I found out today that I not only have a sinus infection (which I suspected), but I also have strep throat. So that icky feeling? Not just me being tired or burnt out. I really am sick. That kind of makes me feel […]

The November Write-On Review-a-Thon is Coming

Just like winter is coming, because it’s freaking cold out. I have never in my life been so jealous of bears. Right now, they’re stuffing their faces (so am I) and getting ready for a months-long nap (which sounds amazing) in their caves. Do you know what I would give for a winter of binge eating, binge watching, binge reading, and binge napping? Hell, I’d still do my job. I’d still blog. I just don’t want to leave the house. I’m kind of behind on my ARC review right now, so it’s a perfect time for a Write On Review-a-Thon! […]

#BookBlogWriMo Day 19 – TBR Books

Sorry this #BookBlogWriMo post is late, but I’m super sick :(. But today, we’re talking about our TBR shelves. Hola, hola, hola! Today we’re doing our own version of #WaitingOnWednesday. I have a TBR shelf on Goodreads that quite literally is hundreds of books long. I mean, I know I’ve read some of them and have just forgotten to update their status, but there’s still at least 200 books on there that I haven’t read yet. Some I own but haven’t gotten to, some are old books I haven’t gotten around to buying, and a small portion of them are […]

#BookBlogWriMo Day 17 – Favorite Book Tropes

#BookBlogWriMo Day 17 – Favorite Book Tropes

Welcome to day 17 of #BookBlogWriMo! I can’t believe we’re so far in! Today we’re talking about tropes, because I like them too much to call them cliches. 😛 So, not every book can be original. There are only so many ways a hero and heroine can meet. Only so many types of obstacles they can encounter. Only so many relationship dynamics. When I read a book, it’s not about a completely original plot. What I look for is how well a popular scenario is executed. A book can use proven tropes and still read as original. It won’t remind […]
