Sundays are major days of rest for me. I work on Saturdays so I need that downtime for my next week. It’s also a day of planning and mulling things over… So I am always forgetting to link up with Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and her Sunday Post meme to spread the love. This week I’m doing it all a little differently and posting early… I’ll have to see if that works better…
Why I’m Happy to be Positive ALWAYS
From Orangutan Librarian. This is a post I’ve been needing… I’ve been thinking a lot about reading less… I need time for comments and k-dramas and both suffer when I’m trying to cram an extra book in. THIS EXPLAINS OTHER WAYS it helps your reading life… YOU NEED THIS POST TOO…
Is Hype Help or Harm?
From Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. This is a really timely post… I think book publishing relies on the book community for their hype to sell books. I recently reviewed The Hazel Wood and so I really related to her thoughts on the hype surrounding the book. Do you relate?!
The Five Types of Rereading
From Sarah @ Written Word Worlds. I’ve long admired Sarah’s unique discussions where she recommends books while tackling a bookish topic. This week she talks up re-reading… a habit that has been rather popular in the new year. What type of re-reader are you?! I’m totally the nostalgic re-reader… well, if I had the time…
How to Use Feedly (+ Why It’s My Favorite Feed Reader!)
From Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight. I have long wanted a way to blog hop that is easier and I have heard about other readers… This week Kristen shares some really compelling reasons to give Feedly a try… #1 on my list… you have have different lists of blogs you are following! What are your reasons?!
mARCh Madness: An ARC-less Reading Challenge
From Laura @ The Book Corps. Laura’s goal for March is to have an ARC-free reading month! I HIGHLY applaud this idea… I wish I could totally participate but I have some ARCs I won’t be able to get to until then… but ANYONE can fly high, without ARCs… Check it out!
In 2018 I’ve upped my blogger love game by asking influential bloggers I admire (and adore) to guest post on my blog. For February we’ve got… dun, dun, dun… LASHAAN from Bookidote!
I won’t call it shameless as I really want EVERYONE to read the fabulous Lashaan’s guest post… if you are a fantasy fan then you’ve got to check these classics out! Guest Post // What are your ULTIMATE Adult Fantasy Classics? (And it would be so helpful to me to see what adult fantasy books you suggest in the comments!)
Do you feel the pressure from hype, to read and to skip re-reads?
I do, I do!! I feel immense pressure to read… and I had a great reading month last month too! No reading slump as an excuse. And I certainly want to get to those books that are so highly suggested by my fellow book bloggers… so I NEED to read more! And don’t even talk to me about re-reads!
Please visit these blogs, they are wonderful! XOXO
