Audiobooks vs Physical & Digital Copies

I’ve always been a person who never saw themselves getting behind the whole audiobook movement; rather, I never had the patience to sit and listen to an audiobook without my mind wandering elsewhere. I’d tried it once before, in middle school where you could borrow the audio versions of certain books and listen to them, but I always had to rewind and rewind and rewind until I just got sick of it. I returned the audio version and vowed that they just weren’t for me. Then, I found myself with an hour-long ride to university while studying in Japan, and listening to music and podcasts got boring day after day. I broke down and signed up for a free Audible trial and downloaded Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco.

Throwback Thursday: Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Okay, raise your hand. Who here wishes they could have a hot Indian prince show up and whisk them away on a grand adventure? I can’t be the only one, right? Colleen Houck takes us on a magical, suspense driving, swoon worthy read over the span of six books (Tiger’s Curse, Tiger’s Quest, Tiger’s Voyage, Tiger’s Destiny, Tiger’s Dream Part 1, and Tiger’s Dream Part 2), and one novella (Tiger’s Promise). Today, we’re going to be discussing all those things that really made this book, and the ones that followed, so amazing.

Book Updates: Love & Olives by Jenna Evans Welch

Today, I’m not covering the second day of BookConline (Sunday, May 31) as I could only catch one panel because of family matters. I‘m so glad everything was recorded and uploaded to the Facebook page and group. As soon as I get through those, I’ll make another post about it. In the meantime, I wanted to post a new Book Updates. The single panel I caught—Contemporary Fictions and Modern Day Storytellers—has inspired this post.

The first day of BookConline is officially over. As you read this, day 2 will be underway. For those of you who may have missed the panels, I’m sure you’ll be ecstatic to know that they’re all available to re-watch on both the Facebook Group and the Facebook page. I highly recommend checking them out as there was a lot of amazing, insightful things spoken. With that said, it’s time for a recap.

Bookconline 2020

It’s upon us, everyone. Bookconline is HOURS away, and I am oh so excited. Every year that passes, I vow to attend the convention, but I never have time to. Life gets in the way. Last year it was school, the year before that I was working two jobs. This year we have a mass pandemic. Ironically enough, that’s the only reason I’m able to attend it this year, otherwise I’d be in Japan, watching everything from afar.

Throwback Thursday

Favorite books. We all have them. We all love them. They’re that special read that sticks with us no matter how many years go by. Well, starting today, I want to celebrate those amazing books with Throwback Thursday. Every Thursday I’ll choose a book I’ve read that I think deserves special attention. I’ll go over all the aspects of what I think made the book so great from character development, to plot, to description and dialogue. If you want to join in on the fun, head on over to Instagram and tag your post with #ThrowbackThursdayBooks. Heads up to those who have not read the book. There will be occasional spoilers.
