7 Ways My Reading Habits Have Changed – #TopTenTuesday

Once upon time, I was a straight-out, epic fantasy girl.  I’d take the occasional vampire story but my recreational books needed to fall strictly within a certain category – fantasy.  Give me magic users and dragons and the chosen one and I would lose myself in the incredible world building. And all of that is great, by the way?  I still love fantasy with all my heart and soul and I read it so often.  But I have grown as a reader over the last several years.  I read more things, and in different ways…. 1.) I read contemporary. One […]

Welcome to My Bookish Space

Welcome to My Bookish Space

One of the things I’ve been wanting to do here for an ETERNITY is talk about my bookish space.  With my recent move, this finally feels possible, because my bookshelves finally have a dedicated space.  I am so, so excited about this… it’s such a goals moment in a bookish person’s life to FINALLY have something you can bashfully call a “library”. Seriously, I dunno about you, but this has been major #lifegoals for me FOREVER.  I am beyond excited that this space exists. So since I finally have a proper library, I’d like to give you a tour!  🙂  […]

How Books Grab My Attention

How Books Grab My Attention

Most readers have their niche.  For me, that niche is YA and fantasy with a peppering of historical fiction on the side.  My tastes haven’t really changed much over the years – I read the occasional thriller these days, but for the most part, I’m in the same world I was in middle school. Within my niche, however, there are a few things that make a book catch my eye.  Sometimes it’s word of mouth, sometimes it’s just bright and colorful.  Either way, even as a bibliophile, it’s important to have some standards.  There are way too many books out there […]

It’s Time to Stop Judging People for the Way They Treat Their Books

It’s Time to Stop Judging People for the Way They Treat Their Books

I am sometimes that person who judges you for dog-earring your books. I’m a bookmark enthusiast, and I hate it when covers get folded and bent, when pages get folded… I like my books to look neat and tidy.  I think I’ll always like my books like that… but lately, I’ve been thinking. Why are we so judgmental about what people do with their books? I wrote a post last year outlining some of the things that drive me crazy… and admitting to my own bad habits.  This year, I’m rethinking that.  I’m all for taking good care of our possessions, […]

Should You Try Audiobooks?  Survey Says….

Should You Try Audiobooks? Survey Says….

I’ve been wanting to do a post about audiobooks for a long time. Audiobooks became a regular part of my reading rotation back in 2014.  These days, they make up most of my reading.  When I first started telling people about how much I love them, I got a lot of weird looks.  One of my more blunt friends asked, “Why would you want someone to read to you.” After that I stopped recommending them as much in person – maybe it was just a me thing? – but I’ve noticed the community shifting lately, and it seemed like a good […]

Logging TBRs and Book Reviews

Logging TBRs and Book Reviews

A couple weeks go, I spoke about taking notes in a book and how I keep track of quotes, et cetera.  Now that the year is winding to an end, I thought it was a good time to talk about reading logs and how we all keep track of the books we read and what we think about them. There are a few different ways I personally keep rack of the books I’m reading and my haul. #1. My Blog This first one should seem fairly obvious.  Since I’m a blogger, I do tend to post the reviews of every […]
