20 Questions Book Tag

20 Questions Book Tag

Back in June, the lovely Iris tagged me to participate in the 20 Questions Book Tag!  Have y’all even played 20 questions?  Most frustrating game ever – I feel like it always ends up being way more than 20 questions, and I never guess it right! The book tag version is much more fun.  Thanks for the tag, Iris, and y’all make sure you go check out Hoard of Books! Question One How many books are too many books in a book series? I think it depends on the series.  I would take about twelve more various Harry Potter books […]

What’s America’s Favorite, Iconic Book?

What’s America’s Favorite, Iconic Book?

Have you guys heard about this “Great American Read” television show?  If you use the Goodreads web platform, it’s difficult to miss – the ad has been plastered all over mine for a couple months.

These Books Were a Bad Plan… Why Did I Read Them?!

These Books Were a Bad Plan… Why Did I Read Them?!

Over the years, I’ve read a lot of books.  I’ve gone through a lot of phases.  Not all of these books are gems.  That isn’t to say that they are the worst books in the world – in fact, for the purposes of this list, I’m going with books that aren’t necessarily bad books – but man, oh man… they were not good fits for me.  Looking back on these, I wouldn’t pick these up again.  The glitz and glamour is gone! Size 12 Is Not Fat by Meg Cabot This book was the most frustrating read because despite the title, […]

Finishing Books – #BookBloggerHop

Finishing Books – #BookBloggerHop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Billy on Ramblings of a Coffee Addict.  This week’s question is: “How many books have you started, but just couldn’t finish?”   Check out the linkup to see everyone’s answers! It’s difficult for me to put a book down.  I know how much work goes into writing them. There’s the drafting. Then the editing. Then the redrafting. Then submission and cover letters and inquiries and reading and rewrites prompted by agents, editors, publishing houses.  There’s title changes, cover releases, marketing, promotion, book readings and signings.  A lot of work and love goes into a story, […]
