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 […]

Audio Review | We’re Going to Need More Wine: Stories by Gabrielle Union

We’re Going To Need More Wine: Stories by Gabrielle Union was my first read for 2018 and I absolutely loved it. I have no idea how to properly review this so here’s a list of things I liked and what I didn’t like. What I liked: I loved how personal the narration felt. Gabrielle is the narrator and I felt like one of her friends whom she was having a conversation with. This made me that more invested in her stories. I loved how opened she was. She wasn’t afraid […]

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, […]

#LetsReadIndie Spotlights + a Newsletter

#LetsReadIndie was created not only as a reading challenge but to also help introduce other readers to indie authors. Indie authors need reviews in order for the book to get visibility on Amazon. My goal for #LetsReadIndie is to spotlight a different author every Saturday from different genres. I want you to be able to discover a new author and perhaps your new favorite book. Now you maybe wondering where this is going and I’m getting there…I need authors to spotlight. I don’t care if you only have one book […]
