November 21: Top Ten Books I’m Thankful For

Aw yes, Thanksgiving. That wonderful time of year when we eat turkey and pie. Also get a week off classwork too, so that’s a plus.

Anyways, I plan to get some much needed reading in during my week off. So to start off the holiday spirit let’s dive right into the books I’m thankful for.

1. This Savage Song duology by Victoria Schwab

These are two very beautiful books. These are some of the first books I really got into while listening to book on tape. I typically really struggle listening to books because I don’t like most of the voice actors, but I didn’t mind this one. It was fun to listen to the book while I washed dishes or something similar. I also just loved the world Schwab created. I thought the little poems and songs she wrote for the story were lovely.

1. Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan

I have decided that this is the series that really got me interested in books and reading. Holy crap, Rick Riordan is a genius! I always recommend his books when patrons come into the library I work at and am struggling on getting a kid to read. Anyways, how could Percy and the gang not fit into this?

I fall in love so quickly with book covers. Just love ’em. Lately, the ones that just have text in a cool font and nice layout have really caught my eyes.

5 Things on Sunday: Blogging Tips

Here’s a fun post for you all out there. Here is a meme brought to you by Reads and Treats.

This week’s topic is blogging tips. Hmm… I wouldn’t classify myself as a “good blogger”. So, I don’t think I’m qualified for dishing out tips. I’ll try my best to sound like I know what I’m doing. Here’s my Top Five Blogging Tips:

  1. It’s okay to not post everyday–Seriously. Trying to crank out posts everyday is exhausting and will just wear you out. Plus, I found that I’m not a huge fan of bloggers that post everyday. It kinda starts to feel like spam. I try to only post about 1-4 times a week.
  2. Have a name for your blog that you like–yes, you want it to be attention grabbing and catchy, but you also should like it.
  3. Try to stick to a content theme–don’t post about everything under sun. It’ll be harder to obtain a hardcore audience that way. That doesn’t mean you can’t post about stuff outside your normal content every once in a while though. I like to do that, it gives your reader a chance to learn more about you.
  4. Consistency is good–readers like consistent posts. While I am terrible at this, try to create a posting schedule. I don’t think you need to stick to it religiously, but having some sort of schedule will help draw more readers in because they can count on you having something for them.
  5. Have fun–don’t make this a chore for you. I’m assuming that this is a hobby for most of you. That’s what it is for me, and if it’s not fun and is starting to feel more like a chore is it really worth doing?

DFTBA and feel free to add your two cents in the comments.
