#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.

Read. On the couch? Read. At work? Read. Stuck in line at the grocery store? Read. Stuck in trafic? Listen to an audiobook if I’m not in the mood to play car-aoke. In the bathroom (sorry, is this TMI?)…you see where I’m going with this. […]

#BookBlogWriMo Day 2 – How I Read

Welcome to Day 2 of #BookBlogWriMo! Today’s topic is about how I read. The easiest way to explain it? Schizophrenicish (Webster, add that to your dictionary, please). I read a lot of different things in a lot of different formats. And for so long, I was very anti-ebook. So here’s my story:
