Novel Thoughts: False Advertising

Novel Thoughts: False Advertising

  Today’s topic: False Advertising You know what I’m talking about. When you see a particular cover and you’re like: So you drool over the cover for days, weeks, sometimes even months until you can get your hands on the pretty. But then….you read it. And the story inside is so not pretty. I feel totally gypped when this happens. Because a gorgeous cover should house an epic story, right? Am I right?! So when you read something so beautiful and […]

Horror October Discussion: Horror in Books

Horror October Discussion: Horror in Books

Todays topic: The horror genre in books! As I said in my discussion about horror in film: I loooove horror. I love creepy, dark stories. BUT…I am very picky. I do not scare easily at all, and I find 95% of the horror out there comedic rather than scary. I also don’t have a weak stomach. The gorier, the better!  I have yet to find a book that could actually scare me. As of right now, I remain skeptical that it’s […]

I do not scare easily at all, and I find 95% of the horror out there comedic rather than scary. I also don’t have a weak stomach. The gorier, the better!  [edit: I also don’t get nightmares. Ever. The only movie that ever gave me a (kind of) nightmare is The Notebook, because it reminded me of my past and I dreamt […]

I Think I Have a Serious, Er…Series Problem

I Think I Have a Serious, Er…Series Problem

Once again I don’t have a Monday review (damn PTBD), so today I’m going to talk about series. I am afraid of series. Why? I’m not particularly sure. With really good books, perhaps I’m afraid that the second book won’t compare to the first. With last books, perhaps I’m afraid to end the series. But I’m pretty sure it’s a commitment issue for me. I tend to read the first book and never continue! It’s not necessarily that I don’t want to read […]

Reading Slumps: I have PTBD

Reading Slumps: I have PTBD

As you’ve probably noticed, I don’t have my usual Monday review today. Why? Because I have been in a horrific reading slump the past couple of weeks! :( Ever since I finished Kinslayer, I’ve been suffering from PTBD – that is, Post Traumatic Book Disorder. Post Traumatic Book Disorder is a serious disorder that can result in long periods of not reading, with side effects such as boredom and depression. You may have PTBD if: You recently read a really […]

Nators Discuss: Reviewing Process

Nators Discuss: Reviewing Process

[Jessi] Hello loverlies! We’re here today to talk about our reviewing processes! [Inky] Thanks so much to Lisseth from Read-A-Holicz for submitting this topic! Let’s get this party started! The Reviewing Process So Nator Twin, is there a specific way that you review books? Well, for me, there definitely is. I have to take notes when I’m reading, otherwise I forget everything. When I keep track of my thoughts, I feel like I have more in depth and accurate reviews. […]
