Reading or Listening?


I read a LOT of books, but I’ve never been big on listening to them. I know a lot of people, friends, bloggers, etc that prefer audio books, and I think it’s a great idea. I’ve just always been more of a reader than a listener. I want to change that a little this year. One of my reading goals this year is to listen to a few books. I’m not specifying an amount, I just want to give it a try. I’ve never really given audio books a try, except for ... Read More

What’s On Your Book Wish List?


Carmel over at Rabid Reads  had a great Weekly Question this week, and I thought I would ask one similar. For those that celebrate Christmas, what’s on your book wish list this season? For those that don’t celebrate, if you were going to buy or receive books anytime soon, what would be on your wish list? I love getting books as gifts, but unless I give specifics, it’s hard for my husband to get me book gifts. So, he’ll either give me a ... Read More

Do You Read Holiday Books?


  For most of us, it’s time for the holidays. Yay!! Does this time of the year put you in the mood for holiday books? I love holiday movies (have to watch Christmas Vacation at least once before Christmas!!) and some holiday music helps me get in the spirit. But, I’m not big on reading holiday books. It’s not that I don’t like them or don’t read them at all. I will read some occasionally. It’s not a must though. If one of my favorite ... Read More

Library Haul


I love libraries, especially my local library. And not just because I used to work in one, LOL. I go through spurts, but basically, I read A LOT. So, it's either go in debt buying a whole lot of books or become a regular patron at my local library. The library became my enabler and dealer for my reading habit. It's a rarity if I don't have anything checked out from the library. They don't always have all the books on my TBR list, but they ... Read More

Bookish Character Costumes

untitled (8)

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I'd share some interesting bookish costumes that I found on the internet. I rarely dress up for Halloween, but this may give good ideas to those of you still needing costumes!! I found some great costumes based on some YA books here: Like Hazel Grace Lancaster from The Fault in Our Stars or America from the Selection series – this dress is just gorgeous!! And there's a couple others on that ... Read More

Have You Ever Left Something in a Book for Another Reader?


I saw this picture and post on the Facebook page of The Reading Room and thought it was interesting. I wanted to share it with you all! Have you ever left something in a book (on purpose) for another reader, like this note? Or have you ever left something in a book accidentally? Ooh, have you ever found something in a book, like a note or something else? The only time I remember intentionally leaving something in a book was when I gave a friend ... Read More

The Mortal Instruments TV Show – Will You Watch?


So, I saw some interesting news on Professional Fangirls.  (I follow them on Facebook, LOL). It seems The Mortal Instruments series will be making it's way to our TV screens sometime in the future. No idea on when or any other details other than Constantin Film is hoping to go into production sometime next year. You can read the article here.  So, if there is a Mortal Instruments TV show, will you watch it? I would definitely check it out to ... Read More

Do You Read Horror?


Thought this would be a good question with it being October and all – soon it will be time for all the ghosts and goblins to go trick-or-treating for Halloween. October is the “spooky” month, so does this time of year make you want to read more spooky, scary, or horror books? Or do you like to read horror novels regardless of the time of year? What are some of your favorite horror or scary books and/or authors? For me, it doesn't matter the ... Read More
