Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is reading slumps. What do you do when you aren’t feeling the reading love? We’ve all gone through it before. One day you’re living your lives happily, immersed fictional worlds and wondering what your next book will be when you begin to notice something.  That book that you really wanted to read just isn’t doing it for yoo. You stare at the TBR pile and don’t want to… Read more »

Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is what are your 2015 reading goals? This year’s goals are pretty similar to last years. I want to focus my reading a little more so goals do help. This is what I want to aim for in 2015. 1. Read 75 books – This was the same goal I had last year and I hit about 80. This is down from previous years where my… Read more »

Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is all about the holidays! What are you holiday plans and/or what are you planning to read over the holidays? This is probably going to be a short post since I don’t have any huge plans for the holiday break. I work in the entertainment industry, which is nice this time of year, because most places close for the week between Christmas and New Years. As… Read more »

Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is what books are on your wishlist this year! Sorry this post is late but I had a crazy weekend and just didn’t have time to post. Like any bookish person, I love giving and receiving books as gifts. It’s actually pretty rare though that I get books as gifts. I think this is because I read a lot and most people aren’t sure of what… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Thanksgiving Traditions

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 Thanksgiving traditions/favorite Thanksgiving foods! Thanksgiving is less than a week away for us American so it’s fitting that this week’s topic is all about Thanksgiving traditions. As you may or may not know, my family does not hail from American originally. My parents are both from Vietnam but we do enjoy partaking in American holidays, Thanksgiving included. We don’t have a lot of Thanksgiving traditions… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Review Writing Process

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 favorite book series! Writing reviews is the hardest part of book blogging for me. I often struggle with putting my thoughts about a book into words and it may take me days or even weeks to complete a review. There are the rare occasions when a review will just flow and come out quickly, but that’s not usually the case. I don’t have a strict… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Scary Books

Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is scary books. What makes a book scary and what are some of your favorite scary books? What makes a book scary? That’s a hard question to answer and I think it’s going to be different for every person. While I love Halloween and horror movies, I realized that I haven’t read a lot of books that would be considered horror or scary. I find books with… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Balance

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 balance – how do you balance blogging and everyday life? Time is one of our greatest commodities. There never seems to be enough of it and I often find myself wishing for a time-tuner a la Harry Potter. Unfortunately I cannot change time (and let’s face it, I am sure I’d mess up the time continuum if I did) so I have to balance my… Read more »

Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is hobbies! What hobbies do you enjoy? Wait – you mean I don’t spend all my free time reading? As nice as that sounds, I do have other interests and hobbies that I partake in. It might be strange but I’ve never considered reading a “hobby.” For me, it’s something that I just do and that is a part of my every day life. I think of… Read more »
