Discussion Post: Do You Let Other People’s Book Opinions Sway You?

discussionpostotherbookopinions

So, the other day I saw two women, who I personally know and respect, talking about a book online. They both said that they thought the book was dumb and that they didn’t like the writing style. Now, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but here was the problem for me…I loved the book they were talking about. I enjoyed the writing style and thought that it had several great points.

How to Read The Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare

This year, I finally discovered the Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, and my life has changed forever! πŸ™‚ It is such an amazing world, and she is still expanding upon it, which boggles my mind and also makes me so happy! Getting started can be a bit daunting though. There are so many books, and it is kind of confusing trying to figure out what order you are supposed to read them in.

I decided, since I have finally completed all of the currently published books in the Shadowhunter Chronicles, that it would be a good idea to make a post that tells you how to read this incredible series.

Bookish Speak: A Glossary of Terms in the Book World

bookishtermsglossary

I have been in the book blogging world for about 9 months now, and I worked in a bookstore for about 3 years. That’s quite a bit of time spent around people who live and breathe books. I have noticed that my vocabulary has changed quite a bit, to the point where I will sometimes have to explain what something means to my friends and family members who aren’t immersed in this world on the regular. So, I decided that it might be beneficial to many if I were to compile a glossary of bookish terms!

The Southern Festival of Books 2018

If you follow my Instagram, you know that I spent the weekend at the Southern Festival of Books in downtown Nashville! It happens every year, but this was the first year that I was able to go, and I have to say, it was magical.

Friday, October 12

I started off the first day early, and got to the festival about an hour before it actually started. I wanted to be able to get the lay of the land, take some nice pictures before there were a ton of people, and grab some lunch from one of the food trucks.

I have had something on my mind for a few months, and I decided to write up a discussion post. Since I have begun blogging, I have felt the need to read extremely quickly.

Now, I am generally a pretty fast reader as it is. It is not unusual of me to finish a book within one or two days time. However, since I started blogging, I feel like I just can’t keep up with how much other bloggers read. I almost feel like I will be judged if I read too slowly.
