Es La Hora Del Chisme | Where Tina spills the tea #1

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 Hour Of Gossip) 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 […]

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 […]

Welcome to my Weekly Recap! My Weekly recap is where I recap books I read (or currently reading), what the Littles read and are currently reading, books I bought or borrowed. I’ll also recap posts I’ve written this week. I’ll be linking up to The Caffeinated Reader for The Sunday Post and Tygna’s Reviews for Stacking The Shelves.

Discussion | Do you review EVERY book you read?

It is no secret that I haven’t been writing reviews lately. Honestly for a book blog, I’m kinda shitty. I hardly write reviews anymore. In fact, if you find a review on here lately we should call it a miracle. I’ve been thinking about working on my review style but the most important question on my mind is: Do I NEED to review EVERY book I read? Most importantly: Do I WANT to review EVERY book I read? The answer to both is no. Now hear me out. 1. Sometimes […]

Tina vs. The Goodreads Challenge 2.0

Last year, I decided not to participate in the Goodreads challenge (you can read the post here), I didn’t want to aim for a number so I set my goal to one and today I’m going to share with you what I learned about not doing the challenge and how much did I read. In 2017, I read 97 books. I didn’t count the books I beta read because some hadn’t come yet but if we had counted those I’m at 100. 1. If I didn’t pick up a book, […]

#BingeWatchersClub | January TBW & Catching Up

#BingeWatchersClub is hosted by Michelle @ Because Reading and Books Movies Reviews Oh My! Here is what the #BingeWatchersClub is: Do you spend hours in front of the TV, maybe days? Did you ever want to chat with other Binge Watchers or ask people for suggestions or maybe just review the season you watched. Books, Movies, Reviews, Oh My! and Because Reading had the perfect idea, why not get all of us binge watchers together? BUT, we want this to be unique so there is no template, no set way […]

My 2018 Reading Challenge Sign Ups

Today I’m sharing with you all my 2018 reading challenges sign ups. After making my reading/blogging bullet journal I realized I signed up for a lot of challenges. I’m feeling a little bit of pressure but my main goal is to accomplish at least 8 of these challenges. The Littles and I are both doing this challenge. Last year, I completed 24 of the letters, the year before I completed 23 letters so this year my goal is to actually complete the whole alphabet. (If you have suggestions for X […]

Happy 3rd Blogversary to Me!

First off, Happy New Year! Today marks my 3rd blogversary! I cannot believe I’m still here after three years. I honestly would have never thought my blog would make this far. But I’m really glad it has and I’m also glad that you’ve stayed by me throughout these three years. I really appreciate it. I was trying to brainstorm ideas for my 3rd blogversary post but couldn’t really think of anything. I wanted to do a giveaway but unfortunately money is tight right now so I couldn’t do that. So […]
