Why do people read book blogs? {Discussion}

We all know that book bloggers read each other’s posts – both to interact with other people who share their passion for books and to get their blog out there. But when people outside the book blogging community read reviews and discussion posts, it makes me wonder why exactly that is. What do people get out of our content?

5 Star TBR predictions! ★★★★★

Hello everyone! I was supposed to blog this morning, but alas! your girl fell asleep. So instead I’m writing this now. I saw Mercy @ Mercy’s Bookish Musings do a video a while back, in which she talked about the books on her TBR she thinks she will give 5 stars to. I thought this was a really cool idea, so I’ve decided to attempt my own list!

Book review/rant: Mage’s Blood by David Hair (Moontide Quartet #1) | In which I complain, like, a lot

(I’ve been putting off writing this review for ages, simply because this book was problematic as hell and it’s gonna make for a damn long blog post. Ugh.)

Mage’s Blood is the first book in the Moontide Quartet series, set in an epic fantasy world in which two continents are separated by a bridge that can only be crossed once every 12 years. The next Moontide is getting nearer, and some magical shit is going down.

Book review: The Girl in 6E by A. R. Torre (Deanna Madden #1)

I don’t write negative reviews very often, because most of the books I read I end up loving or at least enjoying quite a lot. This was not the case with The Girl in 6E. It’s not absolutely terrible, and it has its good parts, but what is described as a ‘shocking’ erotic thriller is mostly just a boring, oversexualised novel that reads like fanfiction.

Book hoarding and the pressure of blogging {discussion}

Hello hello!

I’m in an extraordinarily good mood today, so I figured I might as well get some blogging done! I have a topic on my mind that I’ve been thinking about a lot since I started blogging: the pressure of book blogging in regards to buying books! Let’s get right into it, shall we?
