Vampbard’s Best of 2015

VampBard’s Best Of 2015 I’ve been blogging about books with That’s What I’m Talking About for six or seven years. I think I’ve had a fabulous reading year, even though I’ve read fewer books than in years past. I thought about why the books seem better, and I think it’s because I read primarily ‘known’ […]

Jen’s Best of 2014

It’s that time of year again. The time we all look back over the past year and take a look at our favorite reads. This year is a bit different for me because I started listening to audiobooks. Audiobooks are a very different experience, but an equally valid method of enjoying the written word. I […]

Year in Review – 2013

The end of 2013 is here! And what a crazy year it’s been! I read more books this year than ever – finally reaching over one hundred books read in one year. As of December 31, 2013, I read a total of 103 books!! I think I may actually be brave, and make my goal […]

Before and After… A Year’s Journey by Una

Twimom has suggested that if I wanted, I could share my weight-loss story with you.  At first, I thought it would be great, that maybe I could help inspire or encourage someone.  Then, after I was looking at the pictures of me through this journey, I was embarrassed and became afraid.  As I would have […]

Year in Review – 2012

Here we are at the close of another year. This year my goal was to focus more on reading and less on the mechanics of blogging, and I’m happy to report it was a success! Emotionally and mental I was in a much better place, finding time to read and enjoying writing the reviews. I […]

Year in Review – 2011

Well, another year has come and gone. I am happy to report that I have conquered another year blogging and reviewing so many wonderful books. Once again, my total number of books read has declined from 2010 to 2011, I’m guessing it will be roughly 20 fewer books this year than last. However, my total […]

G & U’s Top Ten Series to Reread

We the addicted to reading, Gikany and Una, have decided to come clean.  Everyone has those guilty pleasures.  Considering, though, the depth of our addiction, we do not just reread a book…Gikany and Una have a habit of rereading series.  *cough*  This has no bearing on us being late with our blog posts to Twimom.  […]

G & U’s Top Ten Heroines that Kick A$$

Gikany and Una read a LOT of urban fantasy and fantasy since it is our preferred genre (although paranormal romance rates right up there as well).  But something we’ve noticed this year in our reading is the increase in women that are not just heroines in the classic Gone With the Wind style, but more […]

VampBard’s Top 10 ways to Blog About Smut Like a Ninja

When she’s not reading books for That’s What I’m Talking About, VampBard has a day job that really doesn’t need to know what she reads in her spare time. 10. Secretly, my favorite reason to have a Kindle is because I can read paranormal romance in public without using a book cover or wrapping my […]

Nima’s Top Ten List of Authors You May Have Missed

When I escape my real life into the pages of a book, I like to really escape, like into another dimension.  As a female reader, however, even the most fascinating time traveler or brilliant spaceship captain better have a love interest to hold mine.  I have yet to figure out what the magic formula is […]

Year in Review – 2010

Welcome to the end of another year. This is my first year blogging, and it was interesting to see how my book list panned out. I read fewer books in 2010 than 2009, but that is understandable now that I’m writing reviews, completing author interviews, blog hopping and chatting with my gals (and guys) and […]
