Hi guys I miss you so much and I miss blogging and I miss the annoying little shit that is WordPress (I do). I decided to check in today because, well, I’ve got a lot of things to say. Continue reading
This is the dreaded post, guys. This is it.
So most of you know that I’ve recently graduated from high school. And some of you are already aware that I’ll be going on a hiatus soon. Why? I’m starting uni. I know most of you would be like, “But I’m in uni and I work and read and blog and study just fine.” And yes, I know that. But I’m going to a public uni. One literally notorious for screwing student’s brains over. It’s incredibly competitive and exhausting, but the result is totally worth it. Continue reading
I’ve actually had my eye on this book for a while now. As soon as I read the synopsis, I knew I had to add the book to my TBR. I loved the concept, and I’ll definitely have to get my hands on this book once it’s released. So I thought, why not share this beauty with the world? And so I decided to participate in this Book Blitz! Continue reading
[I received a free advance review copy in exchange for an honest review]
This book is so good I want to cry. I honestly don’t know where to start; I loved the pace, not too slow, not too fast. Just fast enough to make you want to stay up all night reading it, and slow enough to make you want to cherish the overly swoon-worthy scenes between Ian and Bella. Continue reading
It’s been a while since I’ve written a post that isn’t a book review or a tag. I’ve been having a reviewing slump lately. Which is as terrifying and as frustrating as it sounds. But I’ve been thinking about how annoying my tweeting/blogging/Goodreads-ing habits are. Especially when it comes to my overuse of GIFs and certain words and phrases that I’ve realized are extremely irritating. Continue reading
Here’s a question I’ve been asking myself ever since I first started blogging -and reading ARCs, is it okay to DNF them? You’ve been asked to submit an honest review, isn’t marking an ARC as did-not-finish a part of giving your honest and truthful opinion on said ARC?
(D.N.F. has literally become a verb to me now. DNF this and DNF that, there’s a present continuous form, too. DNFing; look at that! 😂 In my head, it’s become dee-en-ef, which literally has no connection to ‘did-not-finish’ whatsoever. lol. So bear with me!)
I’d be lying if I said that I treat at ARC exactly the way I treat a published book I got from the bookstore. When I find that I’m losing interest in an ARC, I push myself to read more, to try harder, because I feel like I owe it to the publisher/author. But the second I feel like I’m losing interest in a published book I got, I’d toss it across the room (it’s a metaphor, lol) and probably not feel that guilty about abandoning it.
I found myself DNFing a couple of ARCs in June. Out of the 12 ARCs I read, I DNFd 4. That’s 1/3. That’s a pretty scary ratio, isn’t it?
So what about you? How often do you DNF ARCs? Do you feel guilty about it when you do? Do you treat ARCs the same way you do a published book? Let me know!
June has been a pretty busy month. From ARCs to Official Exams to Orphan Black reruns… I was lucky enough to read 8 books this month, all of which were ARCs. So June was officially my ARCs month 😉 Continue reading
