Guest Post: Mark S. Moore Talks the Many Types of Readers and How You Can Deal With Them

7:30 AM

A couple of months ago, I read the fantastic debut novel Rise by Mark S. Moore. You can read my full review here. Since then the novel has been at the back of my mind. Because of this, I knew I had to give the author a platform and ask him to do a guest post for Booked J.

Special thank-you to Mark S. Moore for agreeing to stop by and discuss the different types of readers with us today. This was truly a fascinating topic choice and I love diving into the many archetypes of readers and reviewers. (And mostly anything in life, given how analytical I am.)

Review: Walk of Shame by Lauren Layne

6:00 AM

I have absolutely not shame in saying this: I'M NOW ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED WITH LAUREN LAYNE. Walk of Shame was exactly what I needed to cope with and distract me from my anxiety. Seriously, I'm completely smitten and also COMPLETELY DISAPPOINTED I HAVEN'T READ HER WORK SOONER.

Thanks Devon over at Read by Dev for tagging me in this tag. Tagging tag tagged. I may or may not be humming a few dozen Taylor Swift songs as I type. Also, how many times is too many to say the word tag in a book tag? Tag, you're it. (Also, I picked three books per question because EXTRA.)

178 Thoughts I Had While Reading Finale by Stephanie Garber

11:00 AM

It's officially been a week since Finale was released and I am still SUFFERING FROM THE BIG BAD BOOK HANGOVER IT GAVE ME. And Stephanie Garber just officially snagged Caraval a spot on my all-time favourite book series list. (Which, to be fair, she already had from the time I first read my ARC of Caraval.)

Top Ten Tuesday: Page to Screen (#40)

11:00 PM

It's always a hit or miss experience when it comes to books being adapted for the big, or small, screen. A lot of the time, the books are better. Taste is subjective, but I think we can all agree on one thing: there are just some books that deserve better adaptations.
