Blogger Interview Saturday: Lola’s Reviews

Blogger Interview Saturday: Lola’s Reviews

Since I started this blog I have interviewed a different blogger every week. Sadly I have to announce that I won’t be able to do a Blogger Interview Saturday every week anymore. The reason for this is that I already interviewed most of the blogger that are close friends of mine and it’s getting more and more difficult to find new blogger to interview. It is actually quite difficult to find bloggers to interview. Also it may not seem like it, but I put a lot of time in the blogger Interview Saturday posts every week and I just can’t… Read more »

About Me #5: What to do with spoilers

About Me #5: What to do with spoilers

  Today I want to talk about Spoilers. It is surprisingly easy to get spoiled before reading a book. I hate getting spoiled before reading a book, but sometimes it is so difficult to avoid spoilers. And when you look at it from the point of view of the person who post the spoiler, what can you say about a book without spoiling anyone? What is a spoiler? I would define a spoiler as everything that gives away something about a book or part of a book you haven’t and makes reading the book less fun. That’s really broadly, but… Read more »

About Me #4: Deciding What to Read

About Me #4: Deciding What to Read

I always state that I am the type of reader that read whatever I am in the mood for (I even worded it like that in my Review Policy). So my mood mostly decides what book to read. Ofcourse this sounds really easy, but it often isn’t. Often I know what book I am in the mood for, often I don’t know it excatly and just end up starting something and sometimes (like now) I want to read, but have no idea what to read. And I also have Review books  to consider, I try to regulary read a review… Read more »

About Me # 3: Beta Reading

So I really wanted to do another About Me post this week. Partly because I wanted to showcase my new About Me button, isn’t it gorgeous? The awesome Faye from the blog A Daydreamers thoughts made it and she even included the pony picture a friend of mine made for my blogbanner. So I had planned to do this post about books and moving as I just moved to my new house, but then I realized that I would like to include some pictures in that post, for example of my epic bookcase room. My bookcase room is still full… Read more »

About Me # 2: Writing Reviews

About Me # 2: Writing Reviews

Those of you who follow me for some time already, probably know a bit about how I write my reviews. In this post I’ll explain how and why I write my reviews. I also explain how I started writing reviews. Why and how I started writing reviewsI wrote my first reviews on a dutch site where you can buy books and write reviews of them, called bol.com. These reviews were just a few sentences of what I thought about the book. I thought it was nice to help other people decide whether this was a book for them or not…. Read more »

About Me #1: Favourite Genres

About Me #1: Favourite Genres

I realized that I tend to be a bit impersonal when I write reviews and blog post. I almost never tell you something about myself. So that’s why I came up with the idea to start some About Me posts. And some days I don’t have a review to post yet and then a different kind of post would be interesting I guess. How I started reading and which genresFor todays topic I choice to talk about my favourite genres. When I started reading I started with contemporary books written in dutch. I shall not bore you with titles and… Read more »
