It’s Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s 5th Blogoversary Giveaway!

It’s Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s 5th Blogoversary Giveaway!

That’s right, Feed Your Fiction Addiction is 5 years old today, and honestly I couldn’t be prouder. Blogging has become such a huge part of my life—I’m so glad I’ve gotten to share it with you! In the past five years, I’ve posted: Over 1436 total posts (I’ve deleted spotlights from my early years, so it’s actually well over this number) 154 discussions 633 review posts (that’s the number of posts, not actually the number of books reviewed) […]

January Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up Link-Up

January Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up Link-Up

It’s time for the January Wrap-Up Round-Up! The December/year-end giveaway ends soon, so this is your last chance to enter! For November, the winner was Samantha D., and she chose to make me read The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black. I’m very grateful to her, since that book helped get me out of a reading slump that I’d been in for quite a while! Not sure if we’re doing a dual review or if I’ll […]

Which Types of Reviews Are Most Effective? Let’s Discuss!

Which Types of Reviews Are Most Effective? Let’s Discuss!

I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately. I do a mixture of reviews on my blog, and I sometimes feel what types are the most effective. So, I decided to do a little analysis. WARNING: I make no claims here about my scientific skills. I tried to crunch some numbers, but I did this more as a fun exercise than a scientific query. Keep that in mind! I looked at all the reviews I […]

Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry: Review & Giveaway

Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry: Review & Giveaway

Say You’ll Remember Me is just what I’ve come to expect to Katie McGarry. It’s the type of contemporary that makes me laugh and makes me cry and leaves me truly thinking about all the complexities of the themes. These are my favorite types of contemporaries! What Fed My Addiction: Elle’s Complex family dynamics. Elle’s family life is complicated, to say the least. But I love that McGarry doesn’t give us straight-up villainous, controlling parents. At so […]

My Book Outlet Weakness (& Why My Latest Haul Is All Your Fault)

My Book Outlet Weakness (& Why My Latest Haul Is All Your Fault)

Book Outlet‘s Boxing Day sale is pretty much impossible for a book lover to resist. At least that’s what I’m telling myself. It’s not a personal weakness. No way! I have WAY too many books on my shelves, but whenever this sale comes around, I suddenly find way more books that I need now! And they totally get me with their “spend X dollars to get Y dollars off” because I’m always so close to that next level—of course […]

Bite-Sized Reviews of Love, Hate & Other Filters, Chaos in Kadoma Ward, and Harry Potter & the Cursed Child

Bite-Sized Reviews of Love, Hate & Other Filters, Chaos in Kadoma Ward, and Harry Potter & the Cursed Child

I’ve got four bite-sized reviews for you today, and these are pretty varied in theme, genre and format. I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! I was so excited about it when I got this book at ALA last year that I immediately sat down and started reading it in line. This was the only book that inspired me to do that (even though I was surrounded by books and […]

My Writing & Reading Goals for 2018

My Writing & Reading Goals for 2018

I’m a little late with this, but I wanted to get my 2018 blogging, reading and writing goals written out so that I can (hopefully) track them. Otherwise, I’ll whisper them to myself and then pretend they don’t exist! Writing Goals Complete a second edit of Meet You in Convinerimus (the current working title of my middle grade book) and submit it to at least ten agents. I can’t get published if I don’t submit the […]
