Random Rants and Rambling #32 | I am a Book Hoarder

Hoarder – (Adj) A word that describes anyone that feels the need to find, collect, keep, pack ANY and EVERYTHING becasue they do not know how to throw things away. A nicely put word than Pack Rat. (SOURCE) I HAVE A PROBLEM. There has always been a sneaking suspicion that I’ve been a hoarder. I hoard a lot of things (thankfully, I have a large garage, closets and attic) but […]

Random Rants and Rambling #31 | Are You A Mood Reader?

  The term MOOD READER is one that most readers are familiar with – and it’s an interesting topic to talk about. I am fascinated by everyone’s thoughts on this – so I thought I would add mine to the mix. The gist? I am not a mood reader. This may be twisted logic on what a mood reader IS but I am the type that can pick up just about […]

Random Rants and Rambling #30 | Middle Grade

  In my last Random Rants and Rambling post, I talked about topics in novels that I avoid – but do you ever think about a few genres that you wish you COULD read (more or at all), but don’t? For me, one of those is Middle Grade. I can’t really put my finger on WHY I don’t read more Middle Grade – but I just don’t. There are some great books/series […]

Random Rants and Rambling #29 | How Real Life Affects What I Read

  I think it’s safe to say that there are genres (or topics) many of us will not read – for whatever reason. Some, don’t read Young Adult. Others, Erotica. Some might not like overly dark novels about touchy subjects or novels with cheating or a love triangle. For me, there is more to it than just not wanting to read a certain genre, or something about a particular subject. I […]

Random Rants and Rambling #28 | Book Trailers

  Ya know – it wasn’t until about a year ago I realized that book trailers were a THING. I don’t know if this is a major marketing tool – I mean, I have participated in a few reveals – and I can surely see the appeal and why they are becoming popular. However, the ones that I have seen are cheesy as all get out – and hardly ever do they get […]

Random Rants and Rambling #26 | Haters Gonna Hate – Hype

  If there is one thing that can keep me from a book – it’s HYPE. We’ve all been there – when ARCs start showing up at doors and/or on eReaders, bloggers/readers get E.X.C.I.T.E.D, reviews are pouring in and are RAVING and you’re like, “YEAH BABY, I NEEDS IT!” You get it. Your excitement mounts and you are READY. But. Then you read it – you end up like, “WHAAAAAAAT?! WHAT […]

Random Rants and Rambling #24 | Do You Re-Read?

  We all have our favorite books – some we may even dive back into because we loved the characters or the world. But I noticed lately that I don’t re-read very often like at all anymore, and I will actually skip on a sequel if I feel like I NEED to re-read. This came to me when I was looking for series that I have yet to finish (thanks […]
