The Chatroom : My Read Rating (January 2019)

Welcome to The Chatroom! When I was younger, I use to spend hours in chatrooms and message boards on AOL. It is actually the place where I “met” some of my best friends through these chatrooms and I’ve been friends with them for over 10 years. When I was redesigning, I was trying to think of a cute thing to call my discussions and decided on the chatroom. So grab something to drink and lets talk about My Read Rating. I once saw Lili from Utopia State Of Mind write […]

The August 2018 Wrap Up

Es La Hora Del Chisme | Where Tina Spills The Tea #2

Es La Hora Del Chisme is my take on Jamie’s If We’re Having Coffee. Es La Hora Del Chisme (translates to It’s The Gossip Hour) is where I share with you a little bit of what is happening behind the blog. When I rebranded my blog, I wanted to share more of my personal life and I haven’t really done that but I’m at a point in my life where I want to share with you what is going on with me. So please, get something to drink so I […]

Let’s Discuss | My Audiobook Habits

June is audiobook month and in honor of Audiobook Month, I thought I would talk to ya’ll about my audiobook habits.

My Audiobook Habits 1. I am not a huge fan of contemporary novels on audiobook. I’m not sure why but I haven’t found the right narrators for a contemporary novel. I feel like […]

My Favorite Tropes….EVER.

Today, I thought I’d do something a little different and share with you my favorite tropes ever. I am absolute trash for these tropes and I will honestly buy/request/borrow a book if any of these tropes are even mentioned. I might even throw in a book recommendation. My Favorite Tropes EVER Trope # 1: Brother’s/Sister’s Best Friend Why I Love This Trope: This is probably my favorite trope ever. And I can honestly say it is because my brother didn’t have any hot friends so I feel cheated. CHEATED I […]
