What exactly is our place in the book community?

We are bloggers and reviewers and more I believe that if you’re a reader you’re part of the book community. It doesn’t matter if all you do is read and tell a friend about something crazy that happened in a book or you’re one of the most popular and well-known bloggers in the world. We all have a place. I question what is that place a lot though. Not just for myself but for all of us at a whole. Do we really get as much of a say in certain areas, ie problematic books/themes/etc, or if we have the […]

Goodbye 2016, Hello The Future

Goodbye 2016, Hello The Future

It’s been an amazing few years Guys, it’s time. I’m retiring. I had so much fun the last few years since I began blogging and getting into the book world, but there’s no place for me anymore. Not because I don’t feel welcome, but because I don’t have the heart for it. It’s not because of anything one thing or something that I’ve seen. But let’s be honest, the Twitter book world as of late has been horrendous. I love you all I have so much love and respect for the book community as a whole. You have gotten me […]
