The Chatroom: The Switch From Print Books To Ebooks

Welcome to The Chatroom! The Chatroom is where we discuss anything and everything! Today I decided to link up with Book Blogger Hop to answer this week’s question: Have You Made The Switch From Print to E-Books? Is Either One Exclusive? Personally for me, I have almost exclusively switched to EBooks and I’m going to share with you the reasons why I switched and the rare cases that I will still purchase a print book. My Reasons For Loving EBooks: EBooks tend to be cheaper than physical books. There are […]

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 […]

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. I’m a huge fan of audiobooks especially over the last year, I found myself listening to more audiobooks then reading a physical or ebook and I’ve had some audiobook habits I thought I’d share with you. 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 […]

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, […]

My Anti-Haul  (#1)

Welcome to my first Anti-Haul post! I saw this on Taryn’s blog and thought it would be kind of fun to show the books I don’t plan on buying but maybe borrowing from the library. Truth be told, I haven’t really bought many books lately and I may do a post about that soon. But today, I’m showing you the books I don’t plan on buying this time around. My Anti-haul Turtles All The Way Down by John Green Reason: I’m not sure about this one, John Green is very […]

I’m Reading But I’m Not Reviewing | A Discussion-ish

I’m going through a phase where I’m reading a ton of books and some of them are even really good books but I don’t want to review them. Honestly, it’s part I don’t want to review them part I can’t remember how to write a review. Here are some of the reasons I’m currently enjoying just reading and NOT reviewing. Some of the books I’ve read are hyped books (think When Dimple Met Rishi) and I felt like many people have already read the book and my review won’t matter. […]

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 […]
