Book Blogger Insider Tag

Hello! I was nominated for this tag by Becky at Velvet Spades  Please go and visit her wonderful page, if you have not!


  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you
  2. Answer the Questions
  3. Nominate at least 5 other bloggers


1 . Where do you typically write your blog posts?

Everywhere. I am a little overwhelmed right now (I would say disorganized, but my schedule book has done me very well!) But, I have A LOT of things going on right now, so I’ve been writing on my laptop, on my computer, on my phone in bed…. wherever I have to! But, my preferred in my computer for posts, my phone for comments (I love emoji’s if you couldn’t tell!) 💖💖💖👍😁🍻🍻🐻

2. How long does it take you to write a book review?

Absolutely depends on the book! Sometimes it’s a quick …I’ll say hour, for getting pictures and links up. Sometimes, it’s the whole book because I’m making notes throughout a book and then fleshing it out into a post.

3. When did you start your book blog?

The very end of November 2017.

4. What’s the worst thing about having a book blog in your opinion?

Having a day Job! Ha ha!! I love having a blog, the sad thing is not having as much time to devoted to it as I want! It can be tough at times, and I know that we all have our times where we might say “…why am I doing this??” but, It been a wonderful endeavour!

5. What is the best thing about having a book blog in your opinion?

…..Free Books?? Ha ha!

I honestly love everything. The people I’ve met, the tin foil I’ve added to my hat, the learning experiences. It’s been amazing!!

6. What blog post have you had the most fun writing so far?

So. Many….

Horror in 100 Words (which you’ve all probably heard me talk about TOO MUCH!!)

His Sinful Touch (Which is my fist Cozy Sunday where I got to go on a rant about olde time hygiene in romance!)

Bear (I know… you were all waiting for it. I LOVED THIS POST!! This book hurt my soul…. and I had so mich fun dragging you all down with me to TRY TO UNDERSTAND!! Ha ha!)

Happy Robbie Burns Day!  (Because, haggis, kilts, scotch, cigars?? YES, PLEASE!!)


7.  What is your favorite type of blog post to write?

Everything. (I know I keep saying that…) I created a selfish kind of blog. I LOVE BOOKS! So, this was my first reason to start a blog. I like drinks, something to set my blog apart and give me a reason to make cool drinks.

From there, everything I added  was for selfish purposes! Get a new Far Side Collection??  New excuse for a post. Want to play Video Games? I  Do!

that’s why I do Game On! Saturday’s , Cozy Sunday?  I just decided that I wanted to do these things and needed a way to justify it! So, Thank you! I LOVE YOU, ALL!

8 . When do you typically write?

Typical?? That would mean I plan ahead of time!! Ha ha! I don’t really have a typical time right now, but preferably at a reasonable time!

9. How do you write your book reviews? With a cup of coffee or tea? With Netflix? Cuddled up with your fur baby?

Ummm…. ideally, trying to trap my fur baby (he’s not very snuggly), with  tea in the morning, an alcoholic beverage in the evening, and I’m not one to have more things going on. I may have my man watching something at times, but it’s tough for me to read and make proper notes for a review if something is distracting.

10. When do you write your book reviews? Right after finishing the book? Two weeks after finishing the book?

I finish writing my reviews right after completing the book, and I usually write them WHILE reading the book. I’m usually reading more than one book at a time and I need to keep them straight so I usually have a draft post to make notes in.

11. How often do you post?

I usually post every day. I’ve missed a day here and there. But, usu

As always, I will nominate some of my newcomers! Now that I know how to Ping Back properly!! Thank you Nina!! (By the way… I think that makes you officially nominated, as well.)

      1. Hahahaha nominated by your heart is fine and nominated here is also fine but you are right I am too slow. I don’t remember older books read. But this I will think of doing.
        Hey we became friends in nomination. 👩‍❤️‍👩

    1. I hear you!! I’m looking forward to the next couple of weeks that I don’t have a lot going on and I can actually calm down and read some of the books I’ve really been looking forward to getting to! It’s been a little ridiculous lately!


  1. Writing a post on your phone? Wow…that is dedication! The only thing I do blogwise on my phone is reply to posts at work (if I am not too busy…like today I did not have any time so I am now writing this one on my Ipad lol).
    I think it’s amazing that you are able to find the time to post everyday. I’m lucky to post once or twice a week 😊 This post was a fun read oh and I loved the gif with the cat at the end 😂😂

    1. It’s really hard to write posts on my phone, and I prefer not to.. But, in a pinch! Sometimes I’ll set up a blog tour post on my computer, but leave my thoughts empty because that’s pretty easy to add from my phone in bed (on those nights that I’m finishing a post at 2am that has to go out at 6! 😂😂)

      1. Wow…2 am huh? Really, I don’t think I have ever made it that late on my blog (although I have been reading other blog posts and placing comments occasionaly on those times when I could not sleep). See? Told you, you were dedicated 😀😀😀

  2. This was so much fun to read, Nicole! I am with you on not being very organized and blogging whenever I can. Speaking of Bear, right around the time you posted, I saw TWO, yes TWO, reviews of Bear on Goodreads! I am pretty sure that one of them was positive! And it didn’t mention the….ahem…quirks. Thank YOU for mentioning the quirks. 😂 ♥️

    1. You can ALWAYS count on me for the quirks!! 😂😂 There are A LOT of positive reviews for that book! Maybe I should message one of those people on Goodreads and say “can you please explain this to me?? Am I missing something?” 😅🐻 Maybe they read it for Canada Day like I did! 🍁🇨🇦


  3. How did I know you’d include “Bear” in your list of favorite posts? Sick woman that you are! I’m scarred for life after reading your excerpts. However, “Portnoy’s Complaint” promises to be just as entertaining. 😉

    1. Ha ha! The phone is definitely a challenge and a last ditch effort. And, I don’t think ANYONE will ever forget the Bear post. 😂😂🐻 (I almost feel like there should be ominous music every time I say that!)


    1. It’s definitely a huge pain! I try to save it for making notes, or just adding last minute things (but it has to be text only, the second I think for a picture, GIF, or link to add, it’s back to the PC for me!)
