15 Day Book Blogger Challenge: Day 12 & 13

I totally forgot about this.. I was in the zone reading all day, I’m reading Nearly Broken by Devon Ashley and I am so close to finishing it! Although I only have 30 minutes, I’m just going to say that I’m posting Day 14 with Day 15 tomorrow..

Day 12: How do you deal with blogger fatigue?

I never really had it in the first place. I love blogging! Maybe because it’s still my first year, but boy I hope I don’t ever get it. I would hate to feel like I need to blog instead of just wanting to blog…

Day 13: Describe one underappreciated book EVERYONE should read.

I seriously have to think about that. I think all the books I’ve read and loved, were appreciated in the first place.

6933138[1]I mean I think maybe one of my favorite books that isn’t that popular is Warped by Maurissa Guibord

It’s a book for girls and boys. It’s fantasy and a love story, but there’s enough action in it for a guy. And I fell in love with the book. I wish there was a second one!

15 Day Book Blogging Challenge: Day 8 & 9

Sorry, guys! I really thought I was doing good, too.. I just can’t seem to get a 3 day streak.

Anyways, for those of you who don’t know what the 15 Day Book Blogging Challenge is it’s hosted by April at Good Books and Good Wine, so go over there and check it out!

Quick! Write 15 bullet points of things that appeal to you on blogs!

  1. Appearance: The blog has to look at least a little bit well taken care of. It’s kind of like your home. You have to make it look nice for the company. Which means the company has to be comfortable at your blog, it should be easy on the eyes and even more easier to find things.
  2. Search: Search boxes are very helpful. If I’m looking for a specific post on your blog and you don’t have a search box then it’s likely that I will just go look on a different blog.
  3. Fast Loading: And by fast loading I mean as fast as my computer can load. Which isn’t very fast but it just makes it slower when there’s a ton of moving crap clustered on the sidebars. And different graphics.
  4. No sound: My computer loads slow enough as it is. Sound makes it freeze up. Not to mention it scares the hell out of me. Please no sound or music.
  5. Following: The follow buttons should all be together, and easy to find. It irks me when I have to go all the way down to the bottom of the page just to find a follow button. It almost makes me just want to forget about it.
  6. Rants: I love to hear other people rant about books. Sometimes I think it’s just me and I know that some people don’t like rants, it isn’t professional or something. I love them, though!
  7. Personality: I love knowing that the person behind the blog isn’t a robot! That the person is in fact a friendly human with a great sense of humor.
  8. CAPTCHA: Sometimes I don’t even post my comment because of this stupid thing. Bloggers, you can remove this!
  9. Consistency: It’s nice to give your followers something to actually look at. It’s really sad when I see that a blogger hasn’t posted anything for a few weeks. I think it makes the blog sad too. It makes him feel abandoned, smh.
  10. Comment: I like to see that the blogger is interested in what their followers have to say. One way of doing that is by replying to their comments.
  11. Grammar: I get that we all have typos. But when there’s a line of misspelled words… This irks me. I am a grammar Nazi! Do you hear me? Grammar. Nazi. I have to force myself not to correct other people’s posts and comments because I see a misspelled word. I don’t like being rude, neither do I want to come across as rude.
  12. Color: Bright colors are fine. I actually encourage the use of bright colors, but I don’t like black and white or just really dark colored blogs, which makes it hard to read.
  13. Font: This goes along with appearance. If you have a fancy font, make sure it’s readable. Especially for people who can’t see… Or needs glasses but doesn’t wear them. Haha guilty.
  14. About Me: I like to look at the bloggers about me. I don’t know if that’s weird or not but you never know! That could be your next best friend.
  15. Vlogs: This is definitely not a requirement. I just enjoy listening to my fellow bloggers talk about books over Youtube, or anywhere else but their blog for a change (: The Hardcover Obsession does some pretty cool book talks over YouTube! I’m itching to do that, but I have so much going on. I’m planning to do it next month, for sure!

Next is explaining why I blog about books.  Day 9

This one is going to be quick because it’s pretty simple. I’m a booklover. I believe I’ll love books until the day I die, and maybe even in the afterlife, too! I just feel the need to share my love of books with the world. And my little group of friends wasn’t enough people, so I made this blog in attempt to get others to read about all the awesome books I’m fortunate enough to read 🙂

 

15 Day Book Blogging Challenge: Day 7

What I’m going to talk about tonight is my blogging quirks. I think it’s too early in the year for me to find out about all of my blogging quirks but I’ll just say what I think is right..

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge | Good Books And Good Wine

  • Right after reading a book, I zoom to my computer and post my review on goodreads. And when I’m free I post it on my blog.
  • Before I started blogging I didn’t know how to use the html and CSS formats. Now I use them all the time.
  • I put sticky notes on pages that interests or outrages me while reading a book. Because my memory is awful and I know I won’t remember it after I’m done reading.
  • I don’t type my reviews in Word. I just type it all in wordpress and tweak it as I go.
  • I say “so”, “anyways”, and “guys” too much.
  • I force myself not to use smiley faces in a post even though I’m smiling. I also force myself not to say “haha” even though in reality I would be laughing when saying it out loud.
  • GIFs are my best friend! (When I say GIF I don’t say G.I.F) I love them to death, but I force myself not to use too many.

That’s about it. Although it’s 11pm wordpress is going to tell me its the 15th of July in which I will be very mad because that means that I didn’t get the post up in time. Sigh..I still think it counts.

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge: Day 4

It tis day four! I’m really surprised that I have made it this far. If I make it to day 15 alive and active, we are all throwing a celebration!!

Today we talk about the last book that has outraged you so much that you threw it across the room.  I don’t know if people do this usually but this has only happened to me three times. If this hasn’t happened to you then you need to start reading more intense books! Unless you’re just the type of person that has self-control. In that case, you deserve a golden star for not rationally reacting to a very emotional book. Ok so I know the prompt says the last book, but what the hell. I’m going to tell ALL THREE books, because I’m a rebel!

The last book was Sweet Thing by Renee Carlino

17609127[1] Ok so I didn’t REALLY throw it.. It was an ebook and there was no way in hell that I was going to throw my precious phone. If there is anything that is more important to me than physical books, it’s my phone. Because, some people can’t afford 10 Kindles. Nope, I can’t even afford one. So for now I’m stuck with the Kindle app.

But believe me, I mentally threw my phone at the wall on the other end of my room. And then got up and stomped on it.  This book is so….UGH!

I can’t even begin to tell you guys how mad I was at Will for what he did.

I was on a rollercoaster of emotions throughout the whole book. It’s one of my favorites. You can read my review, here.

Another book was The Keepers: Archer by Rae Rivers

KeeperThis was also an ebook. So I sadly did not get to chuck it at a rock. It made me very mad because the main character, Sienna, was so damn girly. I felt like she was ruining everything. And I was a tad bit jealous that she had three hot boys flocking her all the time. And I swear all she would do was complain about them. I would be more than willing to take her place! Haha anyways, you can read my review, here. Along with an excerpt.

The last book is Torment (Fallen #2) by Lauren Kate

7740152[1]I actually did throw this across the room. I feel kind of guilty now that I think of it because it was a library book…

I couldn’t stand it, though! I threw it because of how boring it was. I loved Fallen so much. Just, after this book I couldn’t finish the series. To me the series went nowhere. And Daniel was being a major jerk. I just couldn’t read anymore of it…

Well that’s it! I’d love to hear about any books that you couldn’t bear to finish. Or that lead you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Comment with your 15 day book blogging challenge and I’ll stop by and check it out!

 I’m a tad bit new to blogging so I haven’t really gotten a chance to really connect with people. Though I do stalk A LOT of blogs, I have favorites and then I have some that I would say I fangirl over. One of the blogs that I have really looked up too is I Am A Reader, Not A Writer. This one is actually the one that inspired me make my own blog. Another is Fae Books and Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Reviews.

I said yesterday that I was going to post day two that evening but never really got the chance to do it so I’m putting day three and two together.

Yesterday’s prompt was explaining your bedtime ritual. And I have to say that I do not have a bedtime ritual. I’m a night owl..And me writing this post right now says it all. I haven’t gone to sleep and its 4:12 am. So, yeah! I did brush my teeth and all that jazz. I wake up at around 9:30am and go back to sleep at 6pm. I grab the book I happen to be reading at the time and read until I pass out. LIKE A BOSS.

I'm just starting out; leave me a comment or a like :)
