Why I Don’t Read Roman..

Why I Don’t Read Romance (Normally)

I know what you’re thinking… how does someone, especially a woman, not read romance? Well… I just don’t. I’m not sure when it happened, but I stopped enjoying most romance novels. I used to read them all the time. My mom got me into them. But as the years went by, I just kind of […]

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone. Let’s hope 2022 is a better year for everyone. I’m still not reading very much, so I still don’t know when I’ll be back posting book reviews. I do have a book I’m reading that is to be reviewed by February, so we’ll see how that goes.

I’ve Disappeared

I’ve Disappeared

I know, I haven’t been around much. Unfortunately, this is largely due to the book community and the never-ending anxiety it has started to create. When I first joined the book community way back in 2010 with the very first incarnation of Keep on Booking, I was in love with the community. We banded together […]

Cancelling Authors vs. Holdi..

Cancelling Authors vs. Holding Them Accountable

I’ve been trying to think of a good way to write this post for a few days now. But the recent explosion of people on Instagram attempting to explain that they aren’t cancelling authors, they’re calling them out and holding them accountable has finally given me the push I needed to write this post. The […]

The Twitter Book Community is Toxic

I’ve been waiting for quite a while to write this post, because I know its going to ruffle feathers. But at this point, I really don’t care. I’m going to write this post and I’m going to say it – the Twitter book community is toxic. I know, I know, you don’t think so. But […]

#BlackLivesMatter

#BlackLivesMatter

I haven’t posted any reviews for a few days and I’ve taken a break from social media. (I don’t consider blogging to be social media if it’s your blog is your entire website.) Part of the reason for this is the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Social media sites are beginning to suppress the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag – I […]

How to Get Books While in Qu..

How to Get Books While in Quarantine

If you’re anything like me, your local, state, or federal governments have issued shelter-in-place or stay-at-home orders. While for some of us this seems to be a dream come true, it really stinks for some of us. A lot of people love to go out and do things, but right now, that’s not an option. […]

My NetGalley is Out of Contr..

My NetGalley is Out of Control

There, I’ve said it. My NetGalley is out of control. I have over 100 books (113 last I checked) to read and review. I need an intervention… I think a big part of the problem is that they don’t limit how many books you can have pending review at any given time. Or if they […]

December TBR

December TBR

So November was kind of a bust when it came to reading. This month, I’m hoping to get more reading done than in November. Most of the books I’m planning to read this month are either for book clubs, blog tours, or just to get my NetGalley/Edelweiss TBRs down. I’m too lazy to grab pics […]

What’s Wrong with NetG..

What’s Wrong with NetGalley & Edelweiss+?

NetGalley is one of my favorite ways to get books to read. You can request books that are going to be released, and in some cases that are already released, and see if the publishers will grant you access to the title. Edelweiss+ is all right, but it isn’t my favorite. Part of the problem […]

The November 2019 TBR List

The November 2019 TBR List

This month I’ve got a few things on my TBR list, but I can’t say whether I’ll be able to get to them thanks to this blasted eye. My eye doctor and I have determined that it is episcleritis, which is thankfully more just annoying than actually harmful. However, when the back and forth motion […]

Blogtober: Favorite Book of ..

Blogtober: Favorite Book of the Month

Well today’s prompt from Anniek & The Library Looter is favorite book of the month. I’ve read a fair number of books this month (13) , so you’d think picking a favorite would be difficult. Especially since I think I only gave two books I read this month five stars. But I’d have to say […]
