Did The Hunger Games Hold Up After Our Reread?

Hello friends! With the new Hunger Games novel being published in May, more and more bloggers could be seen rereading the original trilogy, and I, ever the hype-follower, became interested in rereading the trilogy, as well. I read The Hunger Games for the first time around six years ago, so my memories were hazy at… Continue reading Did The Hunger Games Hold Up After Our Reread?

Have I Fallen Out Of Love With Writing Reviews?

Hello friends! Those of you who've been following us for a while may have seen that I don't post a ton of reviews, and even though I wanted to change that after moving to wordpress I think, after more than a year, it's safe to say that that didn't happen.

Okay, so, first of all - I planned on working on a discussion regarding losing interest in favorite authors... until I realized I've already written about this topic in August.

{Getting Wordy} Do Books Have an Expiration Date?

As book bloggers, many of us are guilty of prioritizing new releases. Even if you don't request, and/or receive review copies, seeing them everywhere in the blogosphere can and, from the publisher's point of view, is supposed to make you want to buy and read them.

Dear Authors, Pls Stop: Tropes and Stuff I Wish I Wouldn’t Have to See in Books

Hello, friends! I'm here with a bit negative, a bit complain-y (totally a word!!) post today, where I point out certain things I detest in books and think authors should abandon.

Getting Wordy: Have YA Prices Gotten Out of Hand?

Hello friends! I'm a bit worried about posting this discussion, because it's a broad, slightly controversial topic, and it's always scary to share your two cents about something like this. As you've probably gathered from the title, today's post will concentrate on the price of events, swag, and other items or content that relates to… Continue reading Getting Wordy: Have YA Prices Gotten Out of Hand?
