Armchair BEA: Topic of Choice – Wrap Up

  The Armchair BEA Wrap Up Post   I think that our topic of choice will be the Wrap Up post as well. I can’t believe how quickly this week has passed by.  This was a very hectic week for the 6 of us and with work, real life, and some travel commitments, we were …

Armchair BEA: Middle Grade & Young Adult Books

AH – OK. looks like I’m starting this one off. I’m a mom with 3 reluctant readers. Boys. Boys who hate to read because it hurts their brains. Yup. Or that’s what they kept telling me when they were younger. I had to go out and find books that they could get excited about. So …

Armchair BEA: Beyond the Borders

This was an interesting topic for the ladies at Badass Book Reviews. We interpreted the topic in different ways: AH – OK, I guess I’ll start this off and talk about my love for Twilight. Yup, Twilight, the series that got me back into reading. I know, you are all laughing at me but there …

Armchair BEA: Novellas and Short Stories

    Wendy – Growing up I always equated how invested I would be in a book with the page count.  I would only search out books that had at least 500-600 pages.  I was convinced that length was the secret to getting this reader attached.  I’m much wiser now and I’ve learned that it doesn’t …

Armchair BEA: Author Interaction

Regina:  My favorite part of blogging is chatting with authors.  At first I just wanted to chat and meet with authors that I loved.  But now that I have been blogging for a few years, and it has been interesting to meet authors that I only have learned about from the blog – and am …

Armchair BEA: More Than Just Words ~ The Audiobook Edition

If you have read my reviews, you know that I’m mad about audiobooks. In the last few years, at least half the books I’ve “read” have been in audiobook format and the proportion keeps increasing. There’s an element of convinience about my preference – I can listen when I’m in the train or walking the …

Armchair BEA: Literature

What is Literature? Reading is such a personal experience but yet it seems to define how people view us.  That is such a weird pull.  A book effects an individual on such an intimate level, yet by seeing a person read a certain book some people believe they know what that book means about a …

Armchair BEA – What’s in a Genre?

DG: Before I joined Goodreads, I read pretty much only two genres: romance and mysteries. Overall, I stay those are still my favorite genres but over the years, my genres have expanded so much that I consider myself an omni-reader. I’m pretty much open to every genre. Sadly, I don’t have time to read in …
