Have I Fallen Out Of Love With Writing Reviews?

Hello friends!

I'm feeling guilty. Back when… Continue reading Have I Fallen Out Of Love With Writing Reviews?

Leaving Books Unrated

Hi, it's Sabrina 🙂  Recently, I had the strange experience of reading The Faster I Walk, The Smaller I Am by Kjersti Skomsvold, a book which touched me deeply in a way I wasn't expecting.  Though I found it difficult to put down, I did not necessarily enjoy reading it.  So, I was left with… Continue reading Leaving Books Unrated

Ex-Favorite Authors I’ve Fallen Out Of Love With

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. Apparently, university has rotted my brain, wonderful.

{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. Of course, I'm generalizing here - I know multiple… Continue reading {Getting Wordy} Do Books Have an Expiration Date?

Ten Things That Always Comfort Me

We've just reached December which happens to be one of the most stressful months of the year. Firstly, the holidays are coming up, and for anyone who celebrates them, this can be an extremely stressful period of time.

Would You Give a Second Chance to Authors Whose Work(s) Disappointed You?

Should we give second chances to authors if we disliked their previous novel(s)? This question has been on my mind for some time, and I'm still unsure about the answer. On the one hand, logic says we should - not only can an author's writing change drastically, but so can the type of stories, the… Continue reading Would You Give a Second Chance to Authors Whose Work(s) Disappointed You?

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. Obviously, this is a super-subjective post which is not meant to undermine anyone's opinion, and I'd love to hear your thoughts - especially if… Continue reading Dear Authors, Pls Stop: Tropes and Stuff I Wish I Wouldn’t Have to See in Books

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?
