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 […]

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 […]
