I wish it wasn’t as hard to keep up with each other as adults. Do you ever feel friendships become more difficult to maintain as we grow into adults?
After so many cancellations, I caught up with some of my friends yesterday and I can’t believe how three hours just flew away. We discussed from the disaster that Game of Thrones’ last season to what we will be doing for the next year’s literature festival.
Of course we dissected each other’s current reads and shared more recommendations – you know just bookworm things!
Anyway here is another interesting conversations I had with fellow bloggers last week about wordpress followers. You know I have been blogging for quite a while here right? But you will be shocked to know my follower count. It is so few I don’t even wanna mention it. Yes, I am not thrilled, but the others were shocked! Yes it is that low.
So help me understand how to gain more followers on WordPress. And if you had not hit the follow button on my blog yet, do it right away.Follow Elgee Writes on WordPress.com
I always return them and as you know I am sincere at leaving comments on other blogs.
What I read this week
This week has been a mess of sorts in terms of my reading. I have three books that I have left halfway and completed just one of them, that a children classic. Now I need to figure it out before it turns out into a reading slump, right?
I am currently reading
- The Mystery of the Blue Train
- The Unhoneymooners
I finished reading Charlotte’s web by E. B. White. Can you believe I have never even heard of this book until it was chosen to be the BOTM of the ClassicsNChristie book club?
What I watched this week
Is it just me or Big Little Lies was not all that great? I mean I enjoyed watching it but I never felt invested in any of the characters and felt utterly annoyed at every single one of them. While, I agree their acting was brilliant but I guess ‘meh’ to everything else about it.
I watched Murder Mystery with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler and I really liked. Cheesy dialogues, a cliched Christie-sque set up and murders to solve – I mean, what is not to like!
I also caught up on a few episodes of Good girls season two and that, I truly loved and felt invested in. I might binge the rest this week. Have you watched it?

Around the blogosphere
Here are a few of my favorite reads from around the book blogging world in the last week. Let me know which are your favorites.
- Krysta on Pages Unbound made me think a lot about the changes book blogging has gone through in the last decade or so. Do give it a read.
- My mind blew its top as I read Kelly’s post on Does engagement equal success as a blogger? I am sure you will enjoy her perspective on successful blogging.
- If you DNF books often, you need to follow this nifty trick on Goodreads by having an exclusive shelf. Many of us do it already but if you are finding out just now about it, thank Inkish Kingdom for the idea.
- Do you pick books marketed as the next Harry Potter or Gone girl? Marija’s post on how important book marketing is on Inside my library mind opens a discussion on this topic.
