What Does the Bookworm Say?: Book Monogamy

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Book Monogamy

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is book monogamy.  Are you a monogamous reader? First, let me define what a monogamous reader is. I consider a monogamous reader someone who pretty much reads one book from start to finish before starting another book. I am definitely not a monogamous reader. I generally have anywhere from 2 – 4 books going at once. I usually pick books in different genres at the same time. Say, if… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: The Change-Up – The Wolves of Mercy Falls

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is a recurring topic about cover changes. We are talking specifically this week about the recent announcement that The Wolves of Mercy Falls (aka Shiver) series will be getting a cover makeover in anticipation of Sinner, a new companion novel to the series. So let’s take a look at the original covers. No I’ve been a fan of the original covers for a long time. Shiver is my favorite… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Negative Reviews

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Negative Reviews

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Elegantly Bound Books and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is about negative reviews. Do you write them and why or why not? I feel like most bloggers fall into two camps – those who write negative or critical reviews and those post positive mostly reviews. Now this can be for many reasons. I have a friend who posts mostly positive reviews because she doesn’t finish books that she does like and therefore does not review them. I have… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Television Shows

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Elegantly Bound Books and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is about Television Shows. This post is super late because I forgot to schedule it. But here it is so enjoy! I am not a huge television watcher. I like TV but find that it’s a very large time commitment and it often takes me months or years to get to and finish a series. And I don’t have traditional cable so I don’t watch shows as they air….

What Does the Bookworm Say?: New Adult

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Elegantly Bound Books and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is about New Adult. Unless you’ve been living under a rock or aren’t a very big reader (in which case you probably would not be reading this blog), you’ve probably noticed lately that over the past year or so there has been a big surge in what has been coined the New Adult genre. From what I know of New Adult, it’s a genre or category of books whose… Read more »

Liv’s Current Obsession: Why I Love Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

Liv’s Current Obsession: Why I Love Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

Frequently, I find myself thanking Alethea (@frootjoos) over at Read Now, Sleep Later for introducing me to new television series.  Two of my favorites are Murdoch Mysteries from Canada and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries from Australia.  I seriously think she has everyone watching these. Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries takes place in Melbourne in the later 1920’s, one of my favorite time periods.  It features actress, Essie Davis as the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, who fights injustice and solves murders with the help of a great cast of characters, a gold-plated pistol, and a dagger hidden under her skirt.  Shouldn’t all… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Booktube

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Elegantly Bound Books and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is about Booktube. If you don’t know, Booktube is a term that’s being used to refer to the growing community of book bloggers that are reviewing and posting via Youtube channels. To tell you the truth, I really don’t know much about Booktube. I know that there are bloggers out there doing their thing on Youtube, but I personally prefer to consume my book reviews the traditional way (reading)… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: The Change-Up – Vampire Academy

This week’s topic is a recurring one called The Change-Up in which we discuss cover changes. Since the Vampire Academy movie is opening wide this week, we though it would be fun to discuss the recent cover changes. If you want to know what I though of the movie, check out this post. Spoiler – I liked it. These are the original Vampire Academy series covers. And these are the new revamped covers. Let me start this off by… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Favorite Romances

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature that I am doing with my friends The Reader’s Antidote, Elegantly Bound Books and The Windy Pages. We often get into bookish discussions over email and thought it would be a fun idea to discuss these topics on our blogs. This week’s topic is Favorite Romances. Since it’s almost Valentine’s Day, we thought we’d get an early start on the love train by talking about some of our favorite romances. I feel like I talk about romance all the time so I thought I would mix this up by picking a genre that I don’t… Read more »
