About Me: Slow Building Romances

About Me: Slow Building Romances

About Me is a feature on Lola’s Review where I talk about me. Usually these posts are everything that doesn’t fall under any standard header, like blog tours, book blitzes, cover reveals or review. About Me posts usually are about books, but are more personal discussions of a certain topic. If an About Me post is about a non-book topic it gets the non-book content posts tag and will be posted on a saturday I love romance books or any books actually with romance in it and most of the books I read contain some romance to some decree. While […]

How to Make Neat html posts

How to Make Neat html posts

Let me start by saying I am not a pro on the matter, but I do know a bit of html and there is little that annoys me more than what I call “messed-up html code”. I am sure there is a real name for it, but it’s basically a html code full of crap because the posts was originally created in word document. Every time I receive a pre-made html code from a tour organizer or author I am hopefull it will be nice html code and then I open it and flinch. And this happens every time. Okay […]

About Me: Our Rats

About Me: Our Rats

Today I am going to talk about my rats today. We have 4 rats and I love them so much! They are called Smarties, Snickers, Skittles and Pita. Pita is the only rat who’s from a different nest and while she is half a week younger than the other rats, she actually is the biggest rat. Smarties and Snickers look pretty much alike on pictures and it’s difficult to determine who is who. Snickers is slightly bigger and has a broader face and Smarties has a white stripe on her belly. In behavior they are really different though. Their cage […]

Happy New Year post!

Happy New Year post!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a great New Years eve! And I wish you all the best and lots of good books for 2014! I spend new years eve at home and spend most of the evening reading. There where some nice fireworks after midnight and our rats actually seemed interested in all the fireworks although they didn’t like the close fireworks or the loud bangs and they where a bit skittish the whole day. This was the first New Years eve in our new house and I was happy to find out that we had a […]

Best books I read in 2013

Best books I read in 2013

As today is the last day of the year I want to end the year the same way I did last year, with a list of the best books I read this year. Actually this list contains all books I gave 5 stars this year. In total I have read 143 books this year, from those I gave 17 books a 5 star rating this year. Last year I had 26 books on this list. I think I have become even more difficult with dealing out those 5 stars. On the other hand I did gave 70 books a 4 […]

About Me: Launch Lola’s Blog Tours!

I am so excited to announce that today is the launch of Lola’s Blog Tours! I will be organizing blog tours, cover reveals, book blitzes and review only events on Lola’s Blog Tours. The site and social media accounts for Lola’s Blog Tours still have a temporarily design at the moment. You can see my temporary logo next to this text. I know it doesn’t look good, I made it myself in paint, but I didn’t want to pay for a temporary logo and design. I requested a custom design from Parajunkee, but there is a waiting list so that […]
