Do You Save Books for Certain Times of the Year? –A Bookish Discussion

Now that it is finally October and it’s actually starting to feel like fall, I wanted to talk about seasonal reading.

Before this year I honestly don’t think the season affected my reading habits too much… Continue reading Do You Save Books for Certain Times of the Year? –A Bookish Discussion

Do You Stop Reading Books You Don’t Enjoy?—Bookish Discussion

Another bookish quirk that I hear people talk about is needing to finish a book regardless of how much they enjoy it. I know a few people who are absolute completionist and must finish a book once they have started, regardless of how much they enjoy it. I once even heard a story about a… Continue reading Do You Stop Reading Books You Don’t Enjoy?—Bookish Discussion

Do You Prefer Hardcover or Paperback Books?

I thought it would be a good time for another bookworm discussion! Do you have a preference between paperback books or hard covers? Personally, I tend towards paper back books mainly because of their price point. I find that the  money I can save per book, can add up quickly and can mean that I’m… Continue reading Do You Prefer Hardcover or Paperback Books?

Bookworm Problems: Accidental All-Nighters

I have spent far too many nights as an accidental night owl as a result of my reading habits.

My Thoughts on The Handmaid’s Tale

I just finished The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and I wanted to talk about it with you guys. This book is a classic, and incredibly influential so I don’t really feel as though my personal review would add much to the conversation.

My Favourite Places to Read

I am a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to reading. I read pretty much exclusively in my bed.

I… Continue reading Bookworm Confession: The struggle between books and money

Bookworm Problems: Cat interruptions

My cat Winnie does not understand why I pay attention to things that are not her. She is also a bit of a jerk. So, needless to say she makes reading, blogging and Instagram…interesting. I thought I’d compile a group of cat related reading interruptions because she’s pretty cute, and I’m sure this is something… Continue reading Bookworm Problems: Cat interruptions
