What Does the Bookworm Say? Disappointing Books

What Does the Bookworm Say? Disappointing Books

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where we discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. Sorry this week’s post is a bit late. The weekend just ran away from me and I haven’t had time to format this post until now. This week’s question is: what recent book(s) were you disappointed in?

What Does the Bookworm Say? Book You’d Like to See as a Movie or TV series

What Does the Bookworm Say? Book You’d Like to See as a Movie or TV series

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is what book would you like to see as a movie or TV show? I’ve really been enjoying the comic book series Alex + Ada written by Jonathan Luna and illustrated by Sarah Vaughn. The series ended really recently and all of the issues are collected into 3 trade paperbacks right now, so you don’t have to wait to read it all. It’s a story set… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say? What’s in a Name

What Does the Bookworm Say? What’s in a Name

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is: tell us what some of your favorite character names are and why. As someone with a slightly unusual name, I find that I take particular notice of names in books. I like quirky and unusual names but I don’t like it when they get too strange or it’s a common name with just a weird spelling (though all bets are off when reading fantasy).  Nicknames… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say? Book World I’d Like To Live In

What Does the Bookworm Say? Book World I’d Like To Live In

  Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is: If I could live in any book world, which one would I choose? This post is a week late, but better late than never. This is kind of a tough question for me. I read a lot of books that have danger and peril which are very fun to read about, but would not be very fun to live in. With my luck, even… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Blog Talk

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Blog Talk

  Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is: if you were not blogging about books, what would you blog about (or would you not blog at all)? Well it’s been a while since I had a Bookworm post. I am trying to get back in the swing of things though and this is a fun topic. I have actually tried blogging about other things before but I was never able to maintain… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Must Meet Authors

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Must Meet Authors

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is what authors do you most want to meet? I am going to stick with living authors for this one since it would just get crazy if we could meet authors that aren’t around anymore. I am pretty lucky in the fact that I live in an area where there are a lot of really great author signings and I have been able to meet a… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say? Upcoming Film and Television Adaptations

What Does the Bookworm Say? Upcoming Film and Television Adaptations

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is about upcoming book adaptations. This year looks like it’s going to be a really interesting year for book to film/tv adaptations. Adaptations are always a mixed bag for me because while I love to see my favorite books come to life, it’s a bit disheartening when the film or television version isn’t as good (in my opinion) as the book. But I am always willing to give… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Serialized Novels

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Serialized Novels

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is: what do you think about the rise and popularity of serialized novels? If you don’t know, a serialized story is a new-ish trend that’s popped up in the last couple of years. Publishers will release a novel or short story in a serialized format, breaking the story into several parts. The ones I have seen are usually released on a weekly basis. Overall I am not a… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Reading Snacks

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Reading Snacks

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is: what is your favorite snack or drink to have while reading? My answer for this is going to be pretty short. I wish I could say that I had a cute little ritual where I had the perfect cup of tea and a cookie each time I sat down to read but, the reality is I usually plop down to read on my couch or… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Favorite Reading Spot

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Favorite Reading Spot

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week we discuss some of our favorite places to read. I am pretty boring in my choice of reading spots. It’s weird but I am most comfortable reading if I can recline a bit. That makes it hard when I go to, say a coffee shop to read because I don’t like sitting straight at a table to read. It’s just sort of uncomfortable for me. I prefer couches,… Read more »
