Discussion: I don’t DNF

January 25, 2014 Discussion 70

If you’ve been stalking book blogs for a while, you might be familiar with the term “DNF”. There’s a few DNF reviews floating around the blogosphere, even Alise has written some here on Readers in Wonderland. What does the term mean? Well, the blogger, for whatever reason, did not finish a book. Maybe it was too horrible, too slow, just […]

Why I Like New Adult

Why I Like New Adult

November 30, 2013 Discussion 42

A few weeks ago Alise wrote a pretty interesting and entertaining piece on why she doesn’t like New Adult. It is brilliant, and as I was snickering over it I realised many of the things she says are true, but there’s also a lot of things about this genre that she is missing. So we thought it’d be a good idea is I wrote a piece from the opposite perspective.

My experience with new Adult so far has been quite excellent, even if I still think it started as a marketing ploy. And I say so far because I have read three. In total. One was a paranormal that was okay, but the other two Read more »

Why I Dislike the New Adult Genre

Why I Dislike the New Adult Genre

November 3, 2013 Discussion 124

First let me say that many of my blogging friends love the New Adult genre, it’s the best thing since sliced bread to them and I respect that. Everyone likes something different and even my co-blogger is in love with the New Adult genre. (She’s going to kill me after this, avert your eyes Bec!) This is my opinion on the New Adult genre and it’s negative, sorry! Plus it’s about time I made a post on this. Read more »

Books You Won’t Believe We Haven’t Read Yet

September 29, 2013 Discussion 106

Bec and I often get those gasps from readers that immediately follow the “No, I haven’t read that book yet.” There are just some books that you assume everyone has read, I do it, Bec does it, and it’s just kind of an unspoken agreement: everyone has read that book. But what happens if you haven’t read that book? The gasp. Which looks a little something like this: Read more »

Bloggers Commenting Back

Bloggers Commenting Back

Interaction is one of the best perks of being a blogger. When I get comments on my blog, I do a little happy dance and noises such as “squee” and “tee hee.” I, like everyone else, love comments.

However, commenting is a lot of work and takes up a serious chunk of time. I comment on about forty different blogs whenever I have free time and it takes around three hours. And after all that time you put in, what if you get no reply? Do you even know if they are reading your comments? If you took the time to comment, surely they could acknowledge that somehow?
