My New Bookish Discovery: Wattpad

My New Bookish Discovery: Wattpad
12 September, 2013 / 10 Comments

I’m assuming a bunch of you already know about this, but since I didn’t until about a week ago I thought I would share the knowledge for those of you who do not. I just got a new phone around a week ago.  I switched from the Windows Phone 7 to an Android, the HTC One to be exact.  I’m really stoked about this, you guys!  While I loved the Windows Phone, I hated the lack of apps.  It seems as though the majority of apps are only available for Android or iPhone.  So, I made the switch (particularly because […]


Top Ten Books I Would Love to See as a Movie/TV Show

Top Ten Books I Would Love to See as a Movie/TV Show
10 September, 2013 / 2 Comments

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! This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Would Love to See as a Movie/TV Show (set in a perfect world…in which movies don’t butcher the books we love). I hope it’s okay that some of them are actually going to be (or have been optioned for) a movie/TV show.  It should count, because I would love to see them (and can’t wait […]


Do You Read Acknowledgements?

Do You Read Acknowledgements?
27 August, 2013 / 23 Comments

Okay, so I ALWAYS read the Acknowledgements section at the back of each and every book that I finish.  I recently discovered that not everyone does this and I am just shocked at how few actually do.  I guess it shouldn’t surprise me as much as it does, because people read novels for the story, not to learn about the author I suppose.  But, reading the acknowledgements is just something I feel the need to do. I’m not sure if it’s because I am an editor and editors are always listed and thanked in the Acknowledgements, which just gives me […]

The lovely Jamie over at The Perpetual Page-Turner posted this a couple weeks ago and invited other bloggers to join in on the fun.  Although I’m a little late to the party, I still thought it would be a fun thing to take part in, so here goes… (Image borrowed from Jamie as well) Author you’ve read the most books from: Carrie Jones Best sequel ever: Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi — just because it surprised me with how much more I loved it than Shatter Me.   Currently Reading: Gravity by Melissa West Drink of choice while reading: Oh, […]


To Finish or Not to Finish?

To Finish or Not to Finish?
7 July, 2013 / 2 Comments

Recently, I started a book that I just could not get into.  I mean, at all.  I couldn’t connect with the characters and I wasn’t able to get into the story.  So, then there comes the time when I have to decide whether to finish the book (and practically torture myself) or just put the book down and chalk it up as a “DNF”.  This is always a very difficult decision for me.  Especially if the book is a review copy from a publisher/author!  They have given me this book, trusting that I will write an honest review at the […]
