15 Day Book Blogger Challenge – Day 9

Welcome to my day 9 of the 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge! As you probably already know, this cool challenge was invented, and is hosted by April over at Good Books and Good Wine. If you want to sign up, it’s not too late, there are linkys for all the days, and I believe they are valid for six months. I’ve had a lot of fun with this challenge so far, and I’ve gotten to know more bloggers I hadn’t interacted with much in the past. Why Do You Blog About Books? That’s a very good question, atually. Because I could have started a blog about travel, too – since I love to travel and am lucky enough to be […]

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge – Day 5 – Tear-jerker

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge – Day 5 – Recommend a tear-jerker This great book blogger challenge is hosted by April @Good Books and Good Wine , and I really have to thank April for this excellent idea. There’s a link-up at April’s blog if you want to participate as well πŸ™‚ Ok, so I do have a tear-jerker or more to recommend, I could probably recommend lots and lots. I don’t know why, but when a book manages to completely touch my heart, and all of my emotions, I feel like I’ve read a really great book! The last excellent tear-jerker I read that I truly loved was Ten Tiny Breaths by K. A. Tucker. Kacey just touched all […]

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge – Day 4 – What is the last book you flung across a room? This great book blogger challenge is hosted by April @Good Books and Good Wine , and I really have to thank April for this excellent idea. There’s a link-up at April’s blog if you want to participate as well πŸ™‚ Since I usually read e-books, it’s been a very long time since I literally flung a book across the room, but that feeling, that anger, that want to fling a book into the wall is one I do know. Luckily, this doesn’t really happen to me very often, as I have become quite good at avoiding books that I just can’t […]

Armchair BEA – wrapup etc

Armchair BEA Wrapup post – and a little more Today is the final day of Armchair BEA, and reflecting on this past week and how much fun I’ve had being very busy commenting on blogs I found through Armchair BEA is a bittersweet thing to do! I discovered a lot of new blogs I’m following now, I loved reading different points of views on genres, what kind of books belong in which genre, and also what genres different bloggers prefer to read and blog about. Here is a list of new-to-me bloggers whom I met and interacted with during Armchair BEA – and whom I am now following, and look forward to getting to know better : Ashley from The […]

Armchair BEA – Non-fiction / Ethics

Armchair BEA – Non-fiction / Ethics

Non-fiction Welcome to day 3 of Armchair BEA, I hope you are having as much fun with this as I am! Yesterday, I participated in my first ever Twitterchat, and I loved it. I also checked out the live video-stream from BEA, and while that was fun as well, it was also a little confusing, becuase it is also a live video chat, with lots of people talking at the same time πŸ™‚ Today, we are talking about non-fiction. When I first saw this as a topic, I was thinking to myself that I don’t read non-fiction apart from course-books in linguistics, so maybe I shouldn’t participate today. However, it is just not doable for me to not participate, I […]
