Morning, fellow bookworms & non-bookish readers!
How are you doing on this Sunday morning? I was supposed to be going for a 10k run with my besties, but all three of us are sick. Hello, Spring! I have a feeling that it would have turned out to be disastrous anyway. Even though I’m not a complete wimp, and lift weights in the gym on a regular basis, I can’t run for the life of me.
Anyway… Grab a coffee, or tea, smoothie, whatever floats your boat, and check out some blog posts from around the blogosphere.
May @Forever And Everly started a discussion about privilege in the YA community. I don’t read many YA books, so I was not really aware all that’s been going on, but she did make some good points.
Angelica, The Book Cover Girl was talking about her issues with strong female characters in YA books, and I wholeheartedly agree with her.
In her ‘Bookworms Explained’ series Chloe mentioned some pretty legit reasons why bookworms often reread old favourites.
Have you ever DNFed an ARC? Did you feel guilty? You might want to check out Erin’s post on A Redhead’s Rambling and see what she thought.
Whether you are a newbie, or a seasoned veteran, you might find some handy tips on how to use Goodreads most efficiently, on Evelina’s blog.
Writing negative reviews: yey or nay? Jenn says nay, and I can understand her sentiment. While I think negative reviews are important, writing them is a personal decision, and not everyone like spending time on something they didn’t enjoy.
I love video games, and although I rarely play nowadays, I used to spend hours and hours immersed in some made up world, and it was awesome. Lashaan @Bookidote made me seriously nostalgic with his post about the greatness of video games.
I love reviews! Love reading them, love writing them. But for some reason, review posts don’t seem to get much love lately. Drew @The Tattooed Book Geek listed a few reasons why this might just be the case.
Apparently there are people who say e-books are not real books. Say, what now? Kaisha @The Writing Garnet explained pretty well just why they are wrong.
Are you tired of forced romance in books? Do you miss stories about friendships and platonic relationships? So does Kelly @Another Book In The Wall.
