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.

Book Reviews – Not All Are Created Equal

I cherish my reading buddies. I see them as rare gems, waiting to be discovered in a sea of movie-goers, hikers, artists, jocks, yogis  and fashionistas. Since the rise of the social, it has been easier than ever to connect with fellow book lovers and see what others think of the sequel you just read and loved or about…

About The Purpose of This Blog

No, not another freshman blogger, full of ideas and passion and pink butterflies of awesomeness and uniqueness and bloglovingness and not-aware-of-what’s-coming-ness. Been there, done that. Had two blogs and killed them. (Kill your darlings! Kill your darlings!) Not sure if I’ve had more good blogger days when I believed the world cared for my ramblings; or…

Catchy Article Titles and Fake Rogue Opinions Diss

So I got angry reading this article: If JK Rowling Cares About Writing, She Should Stop Doing It. I tried to post my comment but Huff Post required multiple accounts to connect with and after permitting it to read my tweets, access my basic Facebook info, post to my Google Plus circles and basically browse my soul…
