The Importance of Negative Reviews

February 15, 2018 Discussion 13

This post is a bit late (when all the stuff that inspired it was happening, I was not in the right mood for blogging), but it’s a post that will fits any time really. Because the thing that inspired it is something that’s been repeated time and time again: A select few authors getting in a tizzy over negative reviews […]

December 15, 2017 Discussion 16

Bec’s December Series Reading Binge

December 6, 2017 Discussion 25

When I read sequels to books I love, I like to binge them. Ideally this happens after a reread of the previous books to refresh the details. My hectic schedule during uni doesn’t allow much binge reading time so usually these all get pushed to the end of the year. That time is NOW. I’m excited. There are so many […]
