One genre of books I never read for the longest time was poetry. Whenever I thought of poetry, I automatically remembered all the old, boring poems I had to read for middle school English classes. However, I’ve read some poetry collections this past year that have become new favorites. In case you are like past Liv, never fear! Here are four recommendations!
It’s now 2018! One of the most popular things to set in January is a Goodreads Reading Goal for the year. It’s a great way to decide how many books you want to read the upcoming year. Or is it? I’ve seen many discussions in the book community about this reading challenge and whether it is good or bad. I plan to discuss it more in my post today. So, what are the pros and cons of setting a Goodreads Goal?
If we’re friends on Goodreads (if you’re not, you should rectify that right now and friend me here!), you may notice that I
rarely never pick up audiobooks. I used to read so many audiobooks from my library when I was younger, but I recently picked up my first audiobook in nearly a decade.
Fall is an odd time for readers. Besides the fact that there are SO MANY amazing releases, I also need to catch up on all the books I said I would read, but I never got around to. This is quite a hefty list, so I thought it would be fun to discuss it with you lovely folks! Let’s begin!
There’s one underlying expectation in the book community: in order to be a ‘proper’ bookstagrammer/book blogger/booktuber/etc., you must have a plethora of brand-new, beautiful hardcovers.If you’re like me, then you can’t keep up with this either.

Today, I’m going to talk about four main reasons why you should go to your local library more often!
Note: I understand there are many cities, states, and/or countries that don’t have good library programs. There certainly is privilege that comes with the access to decent libraries.
As more and more books and series are being adapted into television shows and movies alike, a common theme keeps coming up in regards to the degree of similarity of which the adaptation should be to the book. So, should book adaptations always be exactly like the book? Where do we draw the line between the practicality of filming/editing and how similar the book and movie/show adaptation should be?
Open ended novels present quite a controversy to readers. On one hand, yes, they let readers themselves forge the ending to their preferences. On the other hand, who likes a hanging conclusion? So, dear reader, here’s what I think about open endings.
Okay, since this topic seems to come up a lot on Twitter, what better way to talk about it than in a discussion post?
Recently, there’s been some confusion and frustration going on in the book community on Twitter in regards to content in YA books that is polarized between YA and NA. Where do we draw the line?
I recently saw this question on a Goodreads poll, which got me thinking, do some people actually reference a book’s publisher rather than the book’s content? Let’s talk.
