#Bookstagram

Today’s discussion is going to be about Bookstagram, for those of you who don’t know what Bookstagram is, it’s the book community on Instagram.  And no, I’m not going to discuss the new algorithm because it would defeat the purpose of this post, but if you must know, I’m wicked pissed about the new algorithm.  …

#QandAs

Today’s short and somewhat ranty discussion is about QandAs and something that I have noticed with them.  I currently have a QandA going on right now and it inspired this post. There is no giveaway attached to my QandA maybe that’s the problem.  I have noticed that QandAs garner more attention when there is some …

#BlogStructure

Today's discussion is all about how I structure my blog the way that I do.  Everyone structures their blog in their own unique way. First I’m going to discuss my categories, I have seven of them. Rating System- The system that I use to rate books Book Code- The color coding system I use to …

#ReadAThons

I have participated in a handful of readathons.  Out of the ones that I have participated in, my favorites are the Biannual Bibliothon and DiverseAThon.  The Biannual Bibliothon occurs twice a year and has reading challenges, video …

#ReadingSlumps

Today's short discussion is about reading slumps. I have only ever experienced minor reading slumps, nothing major. I’ve never gone months without reading a book, maybe a week or two but nothing more than that. What always gets me back into reading, is reading the short stories on Pottermore. They’re quick and entertaining. I definitely …

#FakeRatings

Today's discussion is somewhat controversial.  It has to do with Goodreads and the many books that have one-star ratings when the book is still in the editing phase, no ARCs are out and the book hasn’t even been published yet.  While I understand why some people do this, especially with books that may be problematic/harmful …

#MixedReviews

Today's short discussion is about mixed reviews.   Mixed reviews can be tricky when trying to decide if you want to read a book or not.  There are so many books that I have seen with mixed reviews, but there’s a positive thing about them.  A lot of times with mixed reviews, I’ll get the …

#RecentReads

You might be confused by the title and thinking “is this a list of her most recent reads?” Nope, it isn’t a list, but rather a discussion about two books that I read recently. One was borrowed from the library and the other is an ARC. I normally don’t post too much about the books …

#RarelySeen

I thought I would do something different.  A while ago I decided to change the direction of my blog from what it was.  When I first started blogging, I was doing a lot of tags and memes, and while they are great for gaining followers, I wasn’t happy that other than my monthly wrap-ups, my …
