Hi guys!

So I’m assuming that every book lover knows about these huge worldwide electronic bookstores, like amazon, barnes and noble, the book depository etc. There are also many big bookstores in other countries, like Thalia in Germany or Public in Greece. Those are just the ones I know, because these are the countries I’ve lived in, but I’m sure you know what I mean… Those huge stores that probably sell more stuff other than books and have more than a few stores across the country.

I didn’t even know what the word GIF meant a few months ago and now I’m writing a post on it. Look at me – I’m growing! Lol!

Did you know that GIF stands for Graphics Interchange Format? I’m having trouble even understanding what that means exactly, but the point is that it is now a big part of the internet. It is also a big part of the blogging community and also the book blogging world. Some book bloggers hate them, others love them.

I was really not sure if I wanted to do a topic on followers because it’s such a touchy issue. I decided I’m going to do it anyway and see what kind of a reaction I’ll get! Watch me being brave! Lol!

Hello everyone!

I have heard a few different opinions about posting reviews of books you haven’t finished reading. Commonly known as “DNF (Did Not Finish) Reviews”.

Most book bloggers (including myself) also post DNF reviews on their blogs.

So here’s the thing. I read about 1 book every week. Sometimes it can be less and sometimes more, but in general about one. And I don’t feel bad about it. In fact, I feel kind of proud! It’s much more than every single person I know in real life reads and it’s much more than I used to read before getting into booktube and book blogging.

The problem is, that if you see what other book bloggers manage to read in a week or in a month… it’s crazy! Most book bloggers finish about 8-10 books a month, from what I gather. Some even make to 15 and I’ve heard someone saying that they once read 25 books in one month! I couldn’t even believe it in the beginning and I still ask myself Continue Reading

Rating Books

So here’s the thing. I suck at sticking with my opinions. More specifically, my current problem is that I cannot decide how to rate books.

What I usually do, is read the book, write the review, and then decide the rating of the book. Most of the times I manage to make up my mind on how many stars I will give the book, but the problem is my opinion changes afterwards.
