Book Nerd Problems #18: The DNF, or When Do You Give Up?

Book Nerd Problems #18: The DNF, or When Do You Give Up?

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd. #18. The DNF, or When Do You Give Up? Today I want to talk a bit about something that I have a lot of trouble with. That would be the DNF – or the ‘did not finish’. I cannot bring myself to DNF often. It’s something that on the one hand I’m quite proud of, but on the other hand, I know it’s causing me to push through some books that I really dislike, thereby causing me pain. I have a lot of rambly thoughts […]

Book Nerd Problems #17: Spoilers

Book Nerd Problems #17: Spoilers

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd. #17. Spoilers This morning I was just scrolling along my merry way, checking out Top Ten Tuesday posts, and the first one I clicked on spoiled me for a major plot event in a series which I’ve started and have been meaning to finish at some point. Guys. Guys. CAN WE NOT? I’ve struggled with it before, but this is just NOT COOL. I’m not standing for it anymore, so time for me to make a PSA: PLEASE STOP WITH THE SPOILERS. Where I expect […]

Book Nerd Problems #16: Keeping Yourself Unbiased

Book Nerd Problems #16: Keeping Yourself Unbiased

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd. #16. Keeping Yourself Unbiased Book Nerd Problems returns! Did you miss me? Hopefully it won’t take 5 months again until the next post *cough* but in any case, I have a discussion for you today. Because this is something I’ve been thinking about lately. It’s probably more applicable to book bloggers than to readers, but it’s something that I desperately want to hear some thoughts about. There’s quite a bit of pressure here in the book blogging world to connect with as many bloggers as […]

Book Nerd Problems #15: ARC Envy (A Confession)

Book Nerd Problems #15: ARC Envy (A Confession)

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd.#15. ARC EnvyI have a confession to make, and it’s one that will likely have you rolling your eyes or scoffing at me. Because, and I am fully aware of this, this is a total issue of “woe is me” “first world problem” ridiculousness. And for all intents and purposes, I am mad at myself for this. I don’t want this to stir up drama, but probably some of you can relate. Here we go:I suffer from a massive case of ARC envy.Here’s the deal. I’m […]

Book Nerd Problems #14: Non-Readers

Book Nerd Problems #14: Non-Readers

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd.#14. Non-ReadersI think one of the hardest things as a reader is to meet people or be friends with people who don’t read. (Yeah, not everyone’s a nerd like us. Sad, I know.) But sometimes it even goes beyond that. Particularly around today’s teenagers and college students, there’s just such a large percentage of people who don’t even see the point of reading. People who, when I explain that I read two books a week because I love it, think I’m absolutely crazy.I’m sad for these people. […]

Book Nerd Problems #13: Book Borrowing Etiquette

Book Nerd Problems #13: Book Borrowing Etiquette

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd.#13. Book Borrowing EtiquetteAs you probably know by now, this week, I borrowed Vampire Academy from Judith. At a certain point, I mentioned to her that I would very much have liked to throw the book across the room. But, of course, I didn’t. And I reassured her that I wouldn’t. Because that’s just bad book borrowing etiquette. YES. There is an etiquette to this. Someone’s doing you a favor by lending you their book, so you’ve got to teach it with respect! I mean, who here […]

Book Nerd Problems #12: Reading Schedules

Book Nerd Problems #12: Reading Schedules

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd.#12. Reading SchedulesI don’t know about you guys but… I suck at making reading schedules. Over the past few months, I have tried, on two separate occasions, to make such a schedule for myself, just listing in order which books I would read and by when. I failed. Why?1. I couldn’t stick to the schedule timing in the first place.Due to the business of real life, with projects, exams, drama, etc. I just couldn’t find the time, plain and simple, to really get myself to read two […]

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd.#11. All My Friends Are At BEA 🙁While more casual readers may not be able to relate to this and it’s more a book blogger problem.. Let’s face it, if you’re following my blog so closely that you’re reading this post, you probably know the magic that is BEA and how awful it is for any interested YA reader to not be there.So let me take you through my week and show you what I’ve been up to (read: how I’ve coped) while everyone […]
