September Bookviews // Queens, Brides and New Releases, Please!

2020 is The Lost Year. July didn’t even register in my mind until it was August, so I missed that Bookviews post. I bet any money (below five bucks) that we’re going to see an uptick in doomsday books come out within the next couple of years. Regardless, let’s take a look at my BookviewsContinue reading “September Bookviews // Queens, Brides and New Releases, Please!”

August Bookviews // Islands, Recipes and Devil Fires Indeed

(Here’s the Bookview post forContinue reading “August Bookviews // Islands, Recipes and Devil Fires Indeed”

Bloggers who’ve been around five or more years have established followers and loyal readers, so they know what their audience looks for. Each website creator has their own niche of interests, and their content reflects that. Niche /niCH,nēSH/ – adj.Continue reading “Three Blog Ideas That Failed”

Why I Stopped Reviewing Books

Reviews. They’re as good as gold for authors, publishers, agents and potential readers. While some look for a good story or lovable characters, others thoroughly enjoy dissecting and catching every mistake. How do you find the right balance between glowing praise and hateful cynicism? That’s just one of the many reasons I decided to stopContinue reading “Why I Stopped Reviewing Books”

Book Review | Christmas by the Lighthouse

In this new realm of reviewing books, I have to constantly remind myself that I’m not going to love every book I read, be it from the library, a second hand book store, ARCs for review from NetGalley, or directly from the authors themselves.

Book Review | The Heart of a Pirate

In this new realm of reviewing on my site, I have to constantly remind myself that I’m not going to love every book I get my hands on – from the library, a second hand book store, ARCs for review from NetGalley, or directly from the authors themselves.
