If you've been following My Reading Nook for a while, you know there hasn't been a review posted here in a very long time, just promo for new releases and a few spotlights. You may have also heard that my Goodreads account was deleted -- for no apparent reason -- in the spring. For weeks, … Continue reading The End Has Come…
I've always wondered how authors feel about readers who stalk them...not in the crazy, I want to find out where you live, move next door, become your best friend, and sneak into your house to roll around in your bedsheets way. I mean stalking as in, when is the next book coming? I need it NOW, way. … Continue reading Thoughtful Thursday ✰ Stalking Your Fave
I was very lucky to have almost 2 weeks off in December and early January which allowed me to rejuvenate physically and mentally. I did a lot of catching up with cleaning up the blog (did you notice the new layout?) and reading to my heart's desire. I stocked my TBR list with some (hopefully) awesome … Continue reading Thoughtful Thursday ✰ Reading Slump
A couple of weeks ago I was e-strolling through Amazon and a book, [insert holiday themed billionaire romance title] was on my list of recommendations...the shirtless cover model in a Santa hat caught my eye. I'm always here for a quickie with a hot chocolate hero which this looked to be from the tiny thumbnail. When I opened up … Continue reading Thoughtful Thursday ✰ Billionaire Romance
Here we are with only one week until 2016. What's been going on with Coco...? When 2015 started I was working from home as a consultant. I made my own schedule. Sometimes I was super busy working on projects. Other times I had down time that I filled with reading/reviewing 10-15 books per month, easily … Continue reading ☆☆☆ 2015 Recap ☆☆☆
Reading romance is my escape. My respite from the real world bullshhhhh** where happily ever afters aren't always promised. On this blog, my goal is keep it cute, spark some conversation, and hope y'all get my sometimes warped sense of humor. I don't engage in or instigate the drama that sometimes goes on in the book community, particularly … Continue reading ☆☆☆ Thoughtful Thursday ☆☆☆
Do you listen to audiobooks? Do you prefer reading or listening to your favorite books/genres? What makes an audiobook great? For me, it's all about the narrator. The right narrator can give life to even the most dry subject matter. I want the narrator to make me feel the text being read. Although I've listened to countless audiobooks in … Continue reading Every Audiobook Is Not Created Equal
Clean Reader Removes the Profanity from e-BooksI'm trying to figure out why I'd need this app. Lemme think...NOPE...I'm not coming up with anything!!I just don't agree with "cleaning" up older books...we can't just act like the n-word and other offensive language wasn't a part of our history...and our present, for that matter. Deal with it … Continue reading Clean Reader Removes the Profanity from e-Books
Even though I read mostly e-books nowadays I still enjoy walking through bookstores occasionally.
I’ve excused a lot in Romancelandia but THIS is not ok. How these authors could think it’s remotely funny to depict a BDSM romance (a la FSoG) between Sally Hemings and Thomas Jefferson as a JOKE is beyond me. I don’t know of Stephanie Dray’s work but I’ve read numerous books by Laura Kaye in … Continue reading Say Whaaaat…Did I read that right???
