How to improve engagement in book review posts?

As many of us would agree, book review posts draw the least traffic and engagement in a book blog. Despite this notoriety, many of us don't want to stop posting reviews as many of us including me started our book blogs initially to talk about the books we read and how...

Book reviews don’t get much engagement: Why?

Book reviews don’t get much engagement: Why?

As many of us did, I started my blog to talk about the books I read aka book reviews. At some point, people in my real life could only take so much of my nerdiness and were glad that I found a place (where they weren't required to be present) to do that. ...

Kinds of unreliable narrators (No they are all not the same!)

Kinds of unreliable narrators (No they are all not the same!)

Not too long ago, I shared about my love for unreliable narrators in fiction and I even came out with a list. But recently I had a discussion about these narrators and I realized some of my friends had pretty serious opinions about them as well. And not everyone loves...

Let Us Discuss Weird Bookish Habits

No two bookworms can be same, right? Even if we read similar books and have similar tastes in bookish things, we can't all be the same, can we? And that is true especially in my case because most of my bookish habits are weird and eccentric.  Tell me how...

To DNF or not to DNF: Why don’t I give up on books?

To DNF or not to DNF: Why don’t I give up on books?

If you had been following my blog for a while you might have realized that I don't give up easily. Sure I come back here on my blog and bitch about how hard the book was to read, but I don't usually give up on the book or as we book nerds call it DNF aka Did Not...

Do I Obsess Over Page Views?

I am participating for the first time in the Book Blogger Hop hosted by  Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week a fellow blogger asks a question and the participants make a post answering the question. The goal is to make new friends and know more about the...
