Almost every blogger's advice to new bloggers includes "choose a niche." But why is that? There has to be a reason why this is a very popular tip. Why is having a niche so important, and is it actually that important? Today, I want to break down this advice, dig through it, and dissect it.
More often than not, readers I meet in person look down on my reading choices. I started reading books when I was in 6th grade and still did not have friends to hang out with. My darling mum was a reader when she was young and knew what solace books have to offer. Hence, when… Continue reading Is Non-Fiction The “Superior” Genre? || Discussion
This topic has been on my mind for at least two months now. I wasn't sure if I should talk about it in a blog post or simply rant about it to a friend. But also, no one whom I text that much has a blog or bookstagram account which means they won't relate to… Continue reading Why I Don’t Like Comment Back Culture Anymore // discussion
“Don’t judge a book by its cover.” It’s advice everyone’s heard at some point. Covers, people seem to think, represent only the surface level appearance of a book, which is why it’s bad to judge books for their appearance instead of their substance. And while it’s true that the content of a book is the… Continue reading How to Judge a Book by its Cover // Analyzing Cover Trends in Different Genres
None of us are taught how to multi-task. None of us are trained on splitting our focus between multiple activities. We learn by trying.

If you've been quite involved in the online bookish community for a while, especial book twitter, you would at least know about the talk around content warnings[...]
One of the most debated topics in the blogging community, specifically the book blogging community, is blog hopping. There are many questions about it. Do you HAVE to blog hop? How much? How often? Is there a right way of doing it? And is blog hopping important for your blog to grow? Blog hopping is the act of visiting multiple blogs and commenting on their posts. Usually, the term is used for when you spend quite a bit of time doing this. For example, when I start to blog hop, I spend at least 20 minutes.
Annyeong everyone! I'm starting this blog post as I watch Melon Music Awards on another tab, where BTS has already won 3 awards. I think it's safe to say that I'm now an ARMY, although I still don't feel like I'm one because there's so much about BTS that I don't know. I know this… Continue reading BTS Burn The Stage experience
I don't know about you but I have a hard time remembering books. Names, authors, characters, covers and the whole plot. Give me two months and my current read will be reduced to three lines in my brain's storage space.* And I hate this.
There are so many situations in which I'm left mumbling because I DON'T REMEMBER. And I'll be honest, it's a little embarrassing. There's ONE thing I love to do—reading. I have read quite a number of books as well. And I'm not amused when it all becomes mush in my brain[...]
For 99%* of us bookworms, books define us. Book characters are who we are and book worlds are our worlds. And bleeding from all those influences, reading habits are pretty noticeable considering we read ALL THE TIME.
*I assume there are some bookworms who actually manage to NOT be a made up of parts of all the books they've read, because they're somehow immune?? HOW? They're the "Divergent" of us. But I'm assuming they[...]
I'm pretty sure what most people (including me) actually want to do is lie around, have money come to us without doing anything, eat and sleep. Oh and maybe watch YouTube sometimes. All we want to do is BE LAZY. But despite all of this, I am actually a productivity-oriented person. Only if I've… Continue reading 8 things I wish I did everyday
Hello. It's me. I'm drowning in pending book reviews. But here's a tag for you to see. Do you know the problem with reading books very fast? And being a book blogger? You want to review most of them, but you can't post so many reviews a day? And I don't want to bore y'all… Continue reading The Book Blogger Insider tag
Hey all! A while back, my dad tried to persuade me (again) to go out and socialise or pick up another hobby which doesn't make me sit in one place and be lazy all day. I think he's kind of jealous that I can be lazy and still be doing something. (He isn't a fan… Continue reading 10 advantages of reading as a hobby
