Why I Give Books Star Ratings

Hi everyone, it’s Sabrina!  Recently, I’ve found myself reflecting on why exactly it is that I give star ratings to (most of) the books I read.  To be honest, because of some events recently, I started feeling bad about sharing when I have a negative opinion - or even just a not totally positive opinion… Continue reading Why I Give Books Star Ratings

Five Star Predictions: Will These Books Live Up To Their Hype?

Hello friends! After loving working on my previous five star predictions posts, I knew I wanted to make another two-part series of my predictions, but I also knew that I wanted to mix it up a bit. So, instead of choosing four books I'm 1000% sure I'll love, I consulted my goodreads to-read list and… Continue reading Five Star Predictions: Will These Books Live Up To Their Hype?

My Library Surprised Me! Did It Work?

Hey, it’s Sabrina again!  I’ve been planning this post for quite some time now, but it has turned out vastly different to what I was hoping it would be.  A couple months ago, my library gave the option for its members to have boxes of books delivered to their home, since we weren’t allowed to… Continue reading My Library Surprised Me!

Extremely Specific Tropes I Like and Dislike

Hello friends! I know I'm not the only blogger who has strong feelings about extremely specific tropes in books. In most cases, these are not 'big' tropes that influence the whole novel or the character arc - like the chosen one trope does, for example - rather, they are smaller instances or are just more… Continue reading Extremely Specific Tropes I Like and Dislike

A Bunch of Bookish Coincidences

Hey!  It’s Sabrina!  This is a bit of a strange post, but today I’m talking about bookish coincidences that happened through the end of May, June and a little bit of July.  When I say coincidences, I am mostly referring to specific similarities that I noticed within a close timeframe.  This list started off as… Continue reading A Bunch of Bookish Coincidences

Results: Five Star Predictions (Pt. 1)

A couple of months ago, I wrote a post about seven titles I was 99.99% sure I'd love. I was excited to see the results of my five star predictions, but even so, it's taken me ages to get to these novels. I'm awful at getting to a fixed TBR, and that's really hindered my… Continue reading Results: Five Star Predictions (Pt. 1)
