Talking Between Reads (TBR): September is Library Card Signup Month

Talking Between Reads (TBR): September is Library Card Signup Month

Posted September 12, 2016 by Jennifer in Talking Between Reads | 5 Comments

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics.   Get out and get those library cards (or renew them)! They save you TONS of money on books. And most libraries have other things you can check out besides books (gasp!)   Jennifer’s Library Experience I love using my library card, it saves me so much money from books, movies to video games. But what if my library does not have a book/audiobook? Request it! 9 out 10 books I request via my library system they get! I only request ebooks and audiobooks but I’m sure they would get print copies […]


Talking Between Reads (TBR): Intimidating TBR Tag

Talking Between Reads (TBR): Intimidating TBR Tag

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics. After watching Francesca’s video from Under the Covers Book Blog on the Intimidating TBR Tag I thought I would answer the questions myself for this month’s TBR post.     1. What book have you been unable to finish? I DNF The Accidental Human by Dakota Cassidy. I just don’t like Wanda & Health as characters much less care about them as a couple. After listening to about 40% of it I decided to stop and skip to the next book in the series since the H/h were not my favorite characters. 2. What book […]

Talking Between Reads (TBR): Playlist… What Music Genres Put You in the Mood for What Book Genres?

  Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics. Playlists: What Music Genres Put You in the Mood for What Book Genres? Authors talk about their playlists as in what music they listen to when they’re writing. Others talk about what music they listen to while reading. I can’t listen to music while I read. The lyrics distract me and I starting singing with the music instead of reading. But lately, I’ve been listening to music and thinking, this song, artist or genre of music puts me in the mood to read a certain book genre.  More specifically Country music. […]


Talking Between Reads (TBR): The End of the World As We Read It…

Talking Between Reads (TBR): The End of the World As We Read It…

  Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics.   WTF am I reading and does it really matter what the label is as long as I’m enjoying it?! Apocalyptic – relating to the end of the world; relating to, or involving terrible violence and destruction. (per merriam-webster.com) In other words: that’s shit is happening now. Post–apocalyptic – set in a world or civilization after a disaster. In other words: fuck, that was some messed up shit that happened. Dystopia – an imaginary place where people are unhappy and usually afraid because they are not treated fairly. (per merriam-webster.com) In other words, could be […]


Talking Between Reads (TBR): Reading Weather Check!

Talking Between Reads (TBR): Reading Weather Check!

    Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics. Reading Weather Check! We are almost at the end of the first quarter of 2016 so I thought it a good time to do a reading weather check. I had a premonition that I probably wouldn’t be reading as many books as I have in the last few years and I was right. I wouldn’t call it a slump…more a bit restless and distracted. I’m not behind, just barely “on track” according to Goodreads. I found that I was getting a bit bored with the romance genre…just about every sub […]

Talking Between Reads (TBR): 1%ers in Romance (NFSW)

    Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics. The Post Where I Use Creative Manhood Terms… We all get sick of overused tropes in Romance. And Nikki over at Scandalicious Book Reviews did a great post a few weeks ago about “Why I’m Taking a Breather From Contemporary Romance“. I agree with the post 98%, why not 100%? Because it’s not just Contemporary Romance but ALL Romance subgenres that have beat some tropes like a dead horse. My biggest pet peeve is the 1%ers in Romance. I’m not talking about the billionaires (although I’m done with that trope) […]

Talking Between Reads (TBR): Farewell to Shelfari

Posted January 18, 2016 by Jonetta in Talking Between Reads | 12 Comments

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a weekly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by on Mondays for new topics.     If you haven’t heard the news by now, Amazon launched a banner across the Shelfari site last week, announcing it would be merged with Goodreads, effective March 16. It’s being “lovingly” referred to as the pink banner of death.       To say the news was not well received by the remaining Shelfari community doesn’t even come close to the seismic impact. Combine that with the awful method of communication (the email wasn’t received until many hours later) and the pitiful instructions and process to export/import the […]

Talking Between Reads (TBR): 2016 Blogging and Reading Goals

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a weekly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by on Mondays for new topics. Jennifer: Most of you know by now that I am back in college working on finishing up my BA in English. All the classes I have left are literature classes so that means a lot of reading and writing papers for school. (I’m taking FIVE courses this Spring: Major British Writers 1, Romantic Poetry, Visual Literature (graphic novels), Shakespeare in Adaptation &Teaching Grammar) Which means less time for fun reading and blogging. I’ll be taking the back side (I’ll try not to be a backseat driver LOL) to the blog […]
