I Wish I Could Change My Blog’s Name, But I’m too Scared

I Wish I Could Change My Blog’s Name, But I’m too Scared
17 September, 2014 / 3 Comments

It’s not that I don’t like my blog’s name.  I just wish it didn’t have “Book Reviews” in it.  I would love to talk about other interests of mine in addition to books.  I’ve been thinking about doing so a lot lately.  Like, I’m really into nail art and I would love to share new and cool things that I do with my nails with my readers, but that just does not fit with my blog at all.  My name can’t be SIK Book Reviews and then I go and talk about nail stuff, right??  I have other interests too […]

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish every Tuesday.  Every week it’s a different topic and those of us who decide to join in share our top ten for the week’s topic! The following books (in no particular order) are ones that I have labelled on my Goodreads as “not sure”.  Mainly, they are sequels of books that I had an overall meh feeling about, so I’m unsure whether I want to continue the series!  Feel free to let me know what you think.  Should I read these books??  Are they worth it?

I Need Split Second!

I Need Split Second!
19 February, 2014 / 3 Comments

I’m so angry right now, well very frustrated anyway.  I just got back from my holiday in Mexico and I had planned to immediately go out and buy Split Second by Kasie West.  But I thought I would check my local stores to make sure they had it in stock and… THEY HAVE ZERO.  All of the stores in my city.  None of them have any copies of Split Second.  What?!  I’m so disappointed.  So, now I have to order it online and who knows how long it’ll take to get here!  I’m so crushed about this, you guys.  I […]


How Fast of a Reader are You?

How Fast of a Reader are You?
7 January, 2014 / 16 Comments

I soooo wish that I was a speedy reader.  I feel like so many people read books faster than me.  I look on Goodreads and other blogs and people just seem to be able to get through books so fast!  I came across one blog (I can’t remember which one; I’ve stumbled on so many) where the person running it read at least one book per day.  At least?  Sometimes she reads more than one?  How is that even possible?  Even if I had the time, I wouldn’t even be capable of reading more than one book in one day…unless […]

Ashley over at Nose Graze just announced the launch of her new website: BookBlogging.net!  It’s a site where you can find a directory of book blogs and add your own blog.  You can find blogs based on all sorts of ‘tags’, such as young adult, science fiction, reviews, etc.  She’s also made it like a social networking site, where you can post status updates, ‘like’ other blogs, chat in forums, trade books, etc.  It’s pretty awesome.  Ashley describes it in more detail here. I just signed up and am looking forward to discovering more about it and watching it grow!  So, […]


My New-found Love for the Library

My New-found Love for the Library
10 October, 2013 / 15 Comments

Today I want to talk about how much I love the library.  Yes, the old-school borrowing books and returning them with the use of a library card…do people still do that?  Well, yes, they do!  And it’s awesome! My Re-discovery I just re-discovered the awesomeness of the library a couple weeks ago.  Honestly, I hadn’t gone to the library since I was a kid.  I didn’t even know how much a library card cost — turns out, it’s free!!  I was stoked when I went to the library to inquire and they told me it’s free to join.  I was […]

Fangirling for Divergent, Insurgent, & Allegiant

(of sorts) So, as I’m sure you all know (or, at least, you should all know), Allegiant is hitting stores in LESS THAN A MONTH (October 22, to be exact)!!!  I am so super excited about this!  I loved Divergent and Insurgent and cannot wait to read Allegiant.  If you haven’t read them yet, get on it!  Now is the perfect time to pick them up…just in time for the third book. Actually, I am about to start re-reading Divergent and Insurgent in preparation for Allegiant!  This time, I will be reading with my husband (I may or may not […]
