Discussion: The Goodreads Challenge

Every year since I signed up for Goodreads, I’ve participated in the goodreads challenge. And I’ve only accomplished my goal like two times out all those years I’ve accomplished my goal. When I joined the book community, I started seeing everyone’s goals and people had goals over 100. I of course set my goal to 150 but did I ever make it? Yeah, last year and I literally made it like an hour before 2017 came about. That was stressful. I read a ton of books, I probably would have […]

As Discussed By Tina | Am I Too Old For Young Adult?

I want to say it began in the summer but in reality it is something that I have felt for a very long time. Am I too old for Young Adult? Have I outgrown it? I’ve been reading Young Adult since I was about 12 when my mom introduced me Sarah Dessen and I’ve loved the genre ever since. But lately, I feel like I’m too old to be reading Young Adult. The Beginning Of The Problem I began reading a lot of young adult and most of them were […]

Tina Talks | Buying, Reading then Returning Books on Amazon

I follow a lot of blogs on Facebook and one post in particular caught my eye last Sunday. It was from an author I’ve never heard of but the post still caught my eye so I clicked read more and was left speechless with what I read. The author had received an email from a reader raving about her books and how she had read them all and loved them all but, there’s always but right? She had to return them all because they were $0.99 to $2.99 and that […]

Tina Talks | PLEASE SEND HELP ..

Posted April 27, 2016 by Tina in As Discussed by Tina / 0 Comments

The title says it all. I’ve fallen in the worst reading slump since I started book blogging. I’ve started more books than I can count and I just don’t feel like reading. I don’t feel like finding out what’s going to happen. I just find them all boring. I find everything boring. What got me into this slump? I don’t know. I have no idea. Maybe I started too many books at one time. Maybe I don’t feel like reading. Nothing is grabbing my attention. I feel like everything is […]

Tina Talks | All About That Series

Hi! Today I wanted to talk to ya’ll about those series that I haven’t finished, the ones I want to read, my top priority series and the ones I’m iffy about. I’m not entirely sure what inspired me to write this post but I’d love to hear your thoughts on series. When it comes to series you will either here from me the following: “Oh I own all the books in that series, I just haven’t read it yet.” “Oh, I’ve read the x amount books in that series but […]

The Bookworm’s Lounge | The Goodreads Challenge

Welcome to The Bookworm’s Lounge! I haven’t posted a discussion in a very long time, I just couldn’t think of any topics or I started topics and didn’t feel as passionate about them but I finally found something I’m really curious about: The Goodreads Challenge . What is the goodreads challenge? If you are like most bookworms you are on goodreads a lot and you’ve probably heard of the goodreads challenge. Every year goodreads lets you set a goal for the amount of books you want to read this year. […]

The Bookworm’s Lounge | I am bored.

I have a confession. I am bored with blogging. I am bored with reading. I am just bored. I have zero motivation and I have no idea what can help me gain motivation. I feel like my blog mimics almost every blog out there and I want to add things to make it stand out but the problem is I don’t know what. I carry around my little notebook hoping inspiration sticks me and it hasn’t. I’m hitting a blank. And I think another thing that has me frustrated and […]

The Bookworm’s Problems | I NEED more hours in the day.

Have you ever felt like there is just not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything you need to do? I can only do so much multitasking but it still won’t be enough and lately I’ve been feeling like nothing I do is enough when it comes to reading and blogging. So I’ve had to sit down and develop a system. It hasn’t worked out completely but I am finding a routine to help myself keep up with blogging, reading, reviewing, blog hopping, getting posts out on social media […]

The Bookworm’s Lounge | Book Ratings – The Good, The Bad and the UGLY

I just recently decided to make changes to my blog such as adding things here, deleting things there etc. and I realized I never had a “rating system” like many of the blogs I occasionally visit had. I didn’t break down what made a 5 star rating for me or what made a 3 star rating or even a 1 star rating. So I decided to sit down and write down what makes a 5 star rating for me and so on and guess what! I had the hardest time […]
