Let’s Talk Bookish: The Pros and Cons of Book Blogging

Posted September 26, 2020 by Marsha in Discussion / 0 Comments

I discovered this weekly meme through Sophie at Balivernes who visited my blog recently.  (Yes, I do wander around your sites when you visit mine)  I would encourage you to visit Rukky at Eternity Books and Dani at Literary Lion (our hosts for Let’s Talk Bookish) and learn more about them and this weekly event.  The sign-up page on Rukky’s site is HERE.  On Dani’s site, it’s HERE

Although this particular blog is relatively new (I do have 4 active blogs), I’ve been blogging for about 7 years now.  My main blog, Keeper Bookshelf, is 7 years old and my genre-specific, totally paranormal romance shifters site, Shifter Haven is about 6 years old.  I’ve recently added two newer blogs, this one, Happily Ever After Romance, and Paranormal-y Romantic (which will feature all different sub-genre Paranormal Romance novels).

So, I’m not new to this, still discovering and learning new things every month it seems.  And, oh yeah, there are definitely pros and cons to book blogging.

Let’s move on to the lists.

Stacking the Shelves #1 (HEARomance)

Posted September 26, 2020 by Marsha in Stacking the Shelves, Weekly Events / 6 Comments

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality.  If you’d like to take part simply click on those links above to discover what this fun event is all about.

This is my first time joining the Stacking the Shelves weekly wrapup of added books with a new blog Happily Ever After Romance.  (which is a sister site to Keeper Bookshelf) and I’m just a bit excited to join in (keep up-to-date *fingers crossed*) and discover even more new books that I really can’t afford to buy (but I know I will).  🙂

I buy, borrow, or receive ARCs all the time – so these books are the ones I’ve chosen for this particular book/book review blog.  They may show up next week, or next month.  Like most readers that I know, I’m a mood reader – I pick up a book based on what I need for an escape at that moment.

These titles are linked to their Goodreads page if you’d like to learn more.  Two Christmas Romances (which I read all year long) and two anytime Romances.  Not bad. 🙂

Okay, thanks for letting me show off a bit – now I’m off to visit your blogs… and find more books I’m sure.
