All I Want For Christmas

As the world bustled in preparation for the warm conviviality of Christmas Eve, I quite literally headed into a bout of migraine. Before the familiar dizziness, pain and nausea managed to settle in, I had enough time to obsess and panic over my ruined plans. It's not fair, is it - planning for months a …

Underrated Books To Read And Love

It's been a while since I have done a Top Ten Tuesday post. What luck that the topic for this week  - Books I Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Goodreads Ratings - should be so fun and so different! (Also, tbh I love that I don't have to rattle my brains to figure out what books …

Pocketbook Ultra 650 eReader Review (long read)

I bought my first ever e-book reader last week. It took my mom less time to catch up on the Facebook fever than me - on the whole e-book thing. And that's saying something. To me actual books made of actual paper will always be preferable, but I can't begin to tell you how many times I've wished …

The Season of Love for Reading

Disclaimer: I will talk about the seasons today. Please, don't think we've come to a breaking point in our relationship, so much so that we have to talk weather. That is not everything I have to say to you, I promise!  Autumn. Can you think of a better time in the year to snuggle on the …

Top 10 Tuesday – Characters I Didn’t Click With

This week's Tuesday Top 10, courtesy of Lauren and Julia at The Broke and the Bookish  provide ample opportunities to vent. All those times a character made you abandon a book you otherwise enjoyed; all those everyone-loves-me fictional people, who bored you to death; all those heroines you wanted to squeeze the last breath out of in a painful, …

Books + Summer + The Beach – The Dazzling Magic of Beach Reads

Is this the formula for happiness? I cannot say for sure, but I am pretty sure I will be enjoying some seriously happy moments in a very very little bit. The purpose of this post is not to tease, though, so I will just make my point. Beach reads. How do you feel about those? …

Top 10 Tuesday – Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From

This week's Tuesday Top 10, hosted as usual by Lauren and Julia at The Broke and the Bookish is such a no-brainer that I bet I can write it in less than ten minutes. Three, two, one - go! (Just let me open Goodreads). I am pretty certain which three names will pop up at the top, since I devoured …

How To Fit In Non-Reader Crowds and LOVE IT

Do you sometimes find yourself blabbering about a book you read to your closest friends, only to face blank stares and seemingly patient nodding? Then someone would casually mention it was time to change the topic... Yeah, this happens to me, when I drop the guard and spill all that bookish excitement I know I should …

Tuesday Top 10 – Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds

I've been planning to do a Top 10 Tuesday post for ages - I love lists and more than lists I love bookish lists (more than bookish lists I think I love shopping lists I have the cash to cover, but this is really a useless observation, since those lists tend to get longer and the cash - to …

The Polygamous Reader – A Survival Guide (+ handout)

Do you read one book from start to finish and only start the next one when you have, in all honesty, marked it as 'Read' on Goodreads? No, I didn't think so. Polygamous reading is easy to slide into, sometimes just a package delivery away. Imagine this - you are enjoying a delicious macchiato with your Currently-Reading belle …
