Investigated – How do you organize your shelves?

Investigated – How do you organize your shelves?

I’ve been kind of debating whether to reorganize my shelf or not. There are just so many ways to do it. I know some people who organize their shelves by spine color. Other people do theirs by genre. Some do it by title or series or paperback/hardcover or signed and not signed or author. Personally, I organize my shelves by the author’s last name, then their first name. Books by the same author get organized alphabetically by title, unless it is part of a series, […]

5 Things that Annoy Bookworms

I’m going to tell you right now that this is probably just going to be Part 1. I have a lot more than 5 things that annoy bookworms… Interruptions I don’t care if dinner is ready or if the bell already rang. If I’m reading and in my zone don’t interrupt me or face my wrath. Can’t you see I’m busy? Do you have one ounce of consideration in your body? Papercuts These stupid little cuts might sting a bit, but they can’t stop me […]

Review – Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry

Review – Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry

Review: I cannot tell you how long I waited to read Breaking the Rules. Echo and Noah are definitely my favorite couple and characters in the series. (But to be fair, I haven’t finished reading the series yet). That being said, it was so awesome to finally get to read more about Echo and Noah. I really liked their journey and how far they have come since the beginning of Pushing the Limits. I mean this both physically (road trip!) and mentally. It feels as […]

Investigated – Does social media affect your reading?

Investigated – Does social media affect your reading?

Do you think social media affects your reading? I think it does (for me, at least). Between all the platforms in which I have accounts, I think Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads, make (and leave) the biggest impact on what I read, if I read, and how I read. Twitter There is always something controversial going down on Twitter. Usually I steer away from them, but no before I can get a look at who most of the hate is directed to and why that person […]

Review – I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

Review – I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

Review: I felt like I’ll Meet You There was too short. I want more gosh darn it! I want more! It was gritty and real. It wasn’t some stupid cliche novel. It was not a smooth sailing fairytale. It had lots of hardships and problems the characters had to go through and solve. Most of which are relatable, like the desire to leave the place you grew up in for something better. And just as a warning, this book does tug at your heartstrings and […]

Investigated – What’s considered proper book signing etiquette?

Investigated – What’s considered proper book signing etiquette?

Two of my favorite authors will be visiting my local Barnes & Noble this week, and since I hope I can go (please teachers, don’t give me a lot of homework, I NEED to go this event), I was wondering – what is proper book signing etiquette? Now I haven’t really been to a lot of author events – before the last year, not a lot authors visited my local B&N (that I was aware of), I don’t really don’t know much… or anything when […]
