Okay, so I'm typing this in a hurry mainly so excuse me if this is a rather short discussion.

No matter how bad a book was, I would trudge through it with all my might, and giving up on a book was almost equal to 'cheating' for me. It felt like I was cheating on a book if I… Continue reading DNFs : How I Handle and What I Do

I've heard tons of people on booktube and read tons of bloggers who say that 'they see the problems in ------- book and yet they enjoyed it a lot',… Continue reading Are You Allowed to Enjoy Problematic Books? ~ Are We Making A Big Deal Out of This?
So, as book bloggers, sooner or later : you're going to get acquainted with ARCs. You're either going to avail the services of NetGalley, or you're going to contact a publisher and eventually receive (or not receive) physical ARCs.
