Other book bloggers get review anxiety, right? I've spent the past three hours trying to write a review and I've literally written two short paragraphs (and deleted a whole lot more). This is a book that's generally been very well received and I myself absolutely loved it. I guess I'm worried that I'm not gonna … Continue reading Review anxiety
Back in 2016, not long after I'd birthed my blog, pushing it out from between the folds in my brain, rendering it an actual thing and not just an idea bouncing around my head, I’d morph into a green-eyed monster whenever I looked upon bloggers who snagged ARCs, or participated in blog tours for the … Continue reading The Casual Book Blogger
Hi. It's crazy to think that there was a time when I blogged every single day. Back in 2016 and 2017, I swoon over fictional men was my absolute everything. Every single day, regardless of what I was doing, I'd be interacting with people from all across the world, be it in the comment section of … Continue reading It’s been a while
'sup, guys! Thought I'd give you all a quick update as it's going to be a bit quiet here on I swoon over fictional men for the next week or so. I'm heading on vacation on Tuesday so there'll be no reviews or podcasts until next Wednesday at the earliest. To be honest, this holiday … Continue reading Not been my usual self
2017, so far, has found me reading far more than paranormal romance. I've been reading regular romance, fantasy, horror etc... ...and now I feel like my blog's name is a lie. I've been considering changing it to simply 'I swoon over fictional men', perhaps with the tagline 'Human and non-human alike' but that doesn't quite … Continue reading Jazz has a dilemma…please help!
This is my best friend, Stu. We've done a lot together. We went to uni together. We went to our Japan interviews together...hell, we even experienced actual Japan together. We've written musicals together (which, one sweet day, will most certainly see us becoming bigger than Andrew Lloyd Webber himself). We've done drunken karaoke together (although … Continue reading *stands up on a random podium* Ahem, your attention, please!
If I were to participate in WWW Wednesday this week, my list would be exactly the same as last week's...I've been a very bad book blogger. Is everyone else this overwhelmed in the run up to Christmas? I've been dashing around wrapping presents, delivering said presents, working weird shifts and writing assignments for my TEFL … Continue reading No WWW Wednesday this week
It's been an interesting week so far in regards to books. Last Wednesday, I mentioned I was gonna have a non-paranormal romance read and that is exactly what I'm doing... but I also decided to embark upon a conventional romance read as well. It would seem, though, that my idea of a 'conventional' romance book … Continue reading WWW Wednesday – Week 3, 14th December 2016
So last time I had this issue with the comment system, a few people said they'd found my comments in their spam folders. If I usually comment on your posts, please may you take a moment or two to see if I'm chilling out in the spam? Getting majorly frustrated by this. I write a … Continue reading Comments…again *sighs*
Hey there, girls and guys! So, I would like to thank the wonderful Lu, who was kind enough to nominate me for the Mystery Blogger Award. Be sure to check out her blog. It's bursting with reviews and interesting bookish discussions ❤ I would also like to thank Okoto Oke Enigma for creating this award. … Continue reading The Mystery Blogger Award
