The Avenged Sevenfold Book Tag

The Avenged Sevenfold Book Tag

Okay, so remember last week when I did the Taylor Swift book tag (cringes), and joked that the concept was cool, but it’d be better if it was Avenged? Well, I started pondering their song names and realized it wouldn’t be all that hard to come up with. So, here it is…a book tag for people like me, who like their music a little stronger! Inspired by the Taylor Swift book tag, originally posted by The Book Life The songs: […]

The (I Hate) Taylor Swift Book Tag

The (I Hate) Taylor Swift Book Tag

Okay, so it’s no secret that I can’t STAND Taylor Swift. (No, seriously, she makes me want to vomit. When her songs come on the radio, I want to drive my car off a bridge.) Which is why the devious Nova @ Out of Time tagged me to do this. *glares* I don’t ever do tag posts here on Novel Heartbeat, but the idea is kind of cool. It would just be better with Avenged Sevenfold songs instead of Taylor Swift […]

I was surprised by how many there were (I didn’t think I read that much before I blogged!), but what I was most surprised by was the whopping amount of 5 star books I read back then. So, I started analyzing some rating stats from my reading years and what I came up with was very interesting! […]

Novel Thoughts: I’m Picky About the Advance Copies I Choose

Novel Thoughts: I’m Picky About the Advance Copies I Choose

When I first started blogging, I had NO idea what an ARC was. (Ah, to be blissfully ignorant again.) After a few months, once I found out and got established, I discovered NetGalley. Then Edelweiss. SEDUCTRESSES. I (like most of you probably did) went on a massive downloading spree. FREE BOOKS! FREE UNRELEASED BOOKS! Alas, they were not “free.” They came with guilt, and pressure, and…*cringes* obligations. Eeeeeek. For a while there, I was drowning in them. And guess what? Once you’re […]
