Discussion – do you need to apologize for not liking a book?

After reviewing all of the books I read in 2017, I realized that I was doing something compulsively. And that is, apologizing for not liking books. When I started looking ahead to 2018 and considering what I wanted from this year and the things I wanted to change, this was the first thing that came…

Do you read reviews before you buy a book?

I recently had a conversation with someone about how we always read reviews before we buy a book. I wasn’t always like this but, over the years, I found that looking into books further increased my chances of picking up something I would enjoy. Many years ago, before I found YouTube and book blogs, I…

Book buying habits – discussion

I saw a post a week or two ago by fellow blogger Lacy Literacy¬† where she talked about¬†How she’s changed as a reader since joining the online book community. She made so many great points that I’m sure we ALL relate to – but one point stood out in particular – book buying habits. I…

How do you consume a series?

Strange question: How do you consume a series? This a long running topic of conversation between me and my mom. She is a firm believer in the “series marathon”. She won’t even touch a book until the series is complete – no matter what. If it takes 10 years for all the books to be…

Why do you read? Let’s talk!

Before we go into this discussion, I need to rant. I read a blog post about a month ago (someone that I do not follow and I don’t believe follows me) that had me so angry I was literally shaking. Like our parents tell us: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t…

Book Blogging – A Catch 22 discussion

This is going to be a long post – so I apologize in advance! I’ve had so many thoughts flying through my mind over the last few weeks and it’s finally time I got them out in the open! THE BEGINNING I started on Books Amino back in 2016. It’s such a fantastic place! I’ve…

Lets talk – Unique character names

If you’re a fantasy lover like I am, unique character names are just a part of life. Yes, different names come up in other genres, but fantasy seems to be where the most interesting and impossible to pronounce names can be found. I had a great conversation with someone about this topic recently and I…

Borrowing VS Purchasing – discussion

It’s been almost two weeks since my last discussion post so I figured it was time! This is one that I’ve had on the back burner for quite some time. It’s something that’s brought up quite often and evokes quite a bit of emotion from me. That is – the argument of borrowing VS purchasing…

Too much pressure??

This may be a somewhat controversial topic. And before I go into my thoughts I need to make a few things clear. I am in no way attacking/demeaning authors or their work. These are my own personal thoughts and opinions and I’m just voicing them, wondering if anyone else feels the same way. I am…
