Things I love (and hate!) about being a bookworm

Hi, fellow bookworms! Today I’m back on the blog with a discussion post about what I love and hate the most about being an avid reader. I miiiight turn this discussion-style blog posts into a series because I’m a very opiniated person. Oops…

On Reading in Public…

I had some spare time today and decided to write a discussion post. It’s been a long time since I’ve typed up one of these, but I really like them. So today I decided to write a small discussion post on reading in public — what I like about it, what I don’t like, how I do it, and where.

The Big Ol’ Question: Paperbacks, Hardbacks or Ebooks?!

This is one of those questions most bloggers seem to tackle, isn’t it? On the list of questions most frequently asked to or by booklovers, “What do you prefer — paperbacks, hardbacks or ebooks?” must be pretty high up there along with Hamlet’s “To be, or not to be: that is the question.”

Okay, maybe I am exaggerating a little bit (something I never do, pffft!) but it does come up pretty often! Especially in the book-blogging community! Which is absolutely fine because I have a lot of opinions about this topic (you know me…) and what better place than the internet to voice them? After all, this is the corner where I pretend the world is oh-so interested in my opinions that they must read them n o w.

Hardback, paperback, ebook flat

But I’m going on a tangent. The important thing is that I’m going to be answering this question, and probably won’t bring anything new to the discussion but oh well. Let’s get started!

What Women’s Day Means to Me

Oh March, how much I love you. Spring starts showing up slowly, temperatures start to rise, the sun comes out more often and it’s time for Women’s Day. If you follow me on social media or know me in real life, you’ll not be shocked by my undying love for this special day. After all, I’m a proud intersectional feminist, so of course I’ll love a day dedicated to the fights for Feminism, both past and current.

In today’s post, I’d like to share with you what this date means to me and would love to hear your opinions on the matter.

By the way, this post will stray from my usual content: books. If you’d like to skip this one out, go ahead, I’ll be back posting about books soon.

Favorite Graphic Novels and Comics (Top Ten Tuesday)

A genre I tend to read very little of is graphic novels/comics. I don’t know why, they have a lot of things that draw me to them but I end up archiving them on my ‘to-be-read’ shelves and rarely end up reading them.

However, the ones that I have read I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. Moreover, this year of 2017 has revealed to be the one in which I read more books in these two genres, in part thanks to NetGalley and some publishers for sending me digital review copies.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted as per usual by The Broke and The Bookish, is dedicated to graphic novels and comics and I’m taking this chance to share which books I’ve read in the past and loved.

2016: a reading year in review (stats) + 2017 resolutions

In this rather long post, I wrote about what I read in 2016 through statistics and (*gasps*) pie charts! Also discussed what some of my 2017 resolutions are for the year.

A detailed look into what I read

in 2016 with stats

Now that 2016 is finally behind our backs, I think I’m ready to share what I read during that turbulent year.

I find that reflecting back on what I’ve done (in this case what I’ve read) the previous year teaches me a lot not only about my reading tastes but also where I can, and should, do better. Having said that, and because I’m a major stat and data nerd, I couldn’t pass up the oportunity to make some pie charts and calculate some percentages. So, before I get more off course, let’s move on to the reading year.

Books read: 41        ///       Number of unique authors: 47
