Hey all, Dani here. Well, we've finally made it to Friday. This has felt like a v-e-r-y-l-o-n-g-w-e-e-k, at least to me. By the time I finish my shift tonight I will have worked 52 hours this week, which has left very little time for anything that I can't accomplish while at work--you know, so I've… Continue reading Recommendations: Wintery Atmosphere
Hey all, Dani here. Today's review is for a book that I absolutely had to get reviewed before the end of the current winter-y season. It's just thematically appropriate. Anyway, I'm so glad to finally be starting to get nicely ahead of the game when it comes to prepping posts on this blog. I sat… Continue reading Review: Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw
Hey all, Dani here. It has been a busy and productive week of reading, that's for sure. I can honestly blame my time at work for that, which is awesome. I'm going to take advantage of being able to read at work for the next few months, because I have no idea what position I'll… Continue reading Weekly Wrap-Up (48)
Hey all, Dani here.
So my book blogger friend Naty came up with this amazing post that has all sorts of great recommendations for fun and creative bookish post ideas for anyone who might find themselves in a blogging slump. There are quite a few ideas in here that I really like and will probably try to incorporate into my blog in the future.
Hello fellow book bloggers,
Blogging slump is no fun – we end up writing so many posts it’s hard to come up with new ideas sometimes. I get stuck in “reviews + weekly wrap ups” a LOT and no other posts at all, and don’t always feel very creative. That is totally fine and you totally don’t have to create new content all the time, but it’s really fun to do so, and if you’re trying to get more traffic, it’s also an interesting way to get new readers.
So I gathered a list of ideas for bookish posts and I hope you guys find it useful! I sure had fun writing this list (and it took a lot of time).
1. Seasonal posts
This is a classic book blogging strategy. Every year I create a draft for some of the holidays or special days and compile lists of recommendations…

Hey all, Dani here. Happy release day to Emma Lord with the wonderful YA rom-com Tweet Cute. I was lucky enough to be able to join the blog tour for this book's release, and I had such a good time reading this book. So, first thing's first: I need to give out the disclaimer that I… Continue reading Blog Tour Review: Tweet Cute by Emma Lord
Hey all, Dani here. Well, it's Monday again, which means I must be talking about manga again. It has been actually a joy these past couple years to dive back into this reading format. Actually I was reading a manga at work recently and my co-worker asked me if I was reading the book backwards,… Continue reading Manga Review: Black Clover Vol 13
Hey all, Dani here. Greetings and Happy Sunday. I am so happy to be coming back to you all with another installment in my Weekend Writer series. It has actually been so lovely to dive deep into books on the craft of writing and creativity in general. I'm working ahead on some of these posts,… Continue reading Weekend Writer: On Being Stuck by Laraine Herring Part Two – To Move through a Block
Hey all, Dani here. Wow, it's Saturday already. My weekends feel like they go by so much faster now that they are two days instead of three, which is a bit of a shame really. But overall I guess it's all right. This is a lazy weekend for Damian and I, though he is going… Continue reading Review: We Met in December by Rosie Curtis
Hey all, Dani here. Welcome back to my Discussion series here on the blog. Is it just me or are my posts getting a little longer so far this year? I feel like I've been writing a lot. I like that my posts aren't in the 300-500 word range most of the time. I think… Continue reading Discussion: Creative Blocks
Hey all, Dani here. So today's review is another one of those backlist reviews that I've been meaning to write for quite some time. I went on Goodreads to see when I read this book...August 2018, so a year and a half ago, which is ridiculous. Thankfully I had written a few sentences worth of… Continue reading Review: Beyond a Darkened Shore by Jessica Leake
