Is there an author that you just can't get enough of? For me, besides Stephen King, that author is Amy Cross! I love her writing and how spooky her novels are!!!

I figured you guys would appreciate a little background of my meltdown from last night. I want everyone to know that I'm ok, I'm not quitting what I do because I love it too much to just give it up, and I'm learning how to not give a damn so that the next time something like this happens, I can just brush and laugh it off! ❤

Part 1

wanderinglynn I‘m sorry you had to go through that. 🤍 I‘ve never understood why some people feel the need to tear others down. We can all disagree and still be civil about it. Especially with books as there are soooo many choices. I think you‘re smart to leave that group behind. Their comments do not reflect on you, but reflect on them. Keep being awesome and love the books you want to love. ❤️📚❤️ 3mo
brittanythebookdragon Sigh. Can‘t we all just read what we wanna dang read? In any format we wanna read/listen to them on? 3mo
AkashaVampie I am so sorry to hear all the crap u have been going through. I hate groups like that.
You should not feel ashamed or scared to read whatever u want.

I dont want to push u, but if u are looking for a different group to join. u can come check out https://thecreativecrewblog.weebly.com/ where we have 3 different book groups and another group that is a yearly goals group. Nothing in them are mandatory and everyone is welcome. We are very laid back.

Reading is starting to lose it's fun because of all the reader shaming and gatekeeping I've been becoming subject to due to my love for a certain book I'm reading. This saddens me because reading is my passion, and that passion is dying out! 😭😭😭😭😭

RamsFan1963 Forgive my stupidity, but what is gate-keeping? I know what book shaming is, I've had my experiences with it, but I'm unfamiliar with the other term. 3mo
Katerina As far as I know, gatekeeping, in fandoms at least, refers to certain individuals, who don't accept the right of orhers to call themselves part of the fandom or fans of something, because they might not have the level of knowledge the gatekeeper (claims they) have. E.g. "You can't call yourself a reader if you only read 12 books a year!" or "You are not a true Lord of the Rings fan. You can't even name all the Ents." etc etc 3mo
Katerina @RamsFan1963 See above 🙂 3mo

julesG I'm sorry this is happening to you. Everyone should be allowed to read what they enjoy. 3mo
Zoes_Human I'm sorry you're having a hard time with that. I've witnessed that in all my online book communities and, as a library assistant, I even witness it at work (by patrons not staff). I hope you find a way to eliminate those folks from your experience and don't lose something so meaningful to you. 3mo
RamsFan1963 @Nerdy_Bookworm Okay now that I know what gatekeeping is, that's a bunch of bs. I hope you haven't run into that kind of behavior here on Litsy. 3mo
BookwormM @RamsFan1963 glad you asked that as I had no clue either and f**k anyone who judges people by the books they read or don‘t we can‘t all like the same thing 3mo
Suet624 Jeez, I hope that‘s not happening to you here on Litsy. 3mo
Nerdy_Bookworm @RamsFan1963 I haven't on Litsy. It was mainly on Facebook. I was basically called a steaming pile of human excrement because I read books by controversial authors, therefore keeping them relevant and supported. They even had the audacity to tell me that I had to "own up" to basically being a pile of shit. 3mo
Nerdy_Bookworm @Katerina This is a very good explanation of what Gatekeeping is. I've sadly seen it a lot and never thought I'd be on the receiving end of it until last night. All because I posted a photo of Handbook For Mortals and asked if anyone else enjoyed the book as much as I am. The moment I posted that, all hell broke loose and a bunch of people shamed me and were gatekeeping me. It was heartbreaking and painful. 3mo
Nerdy_Bookworm @Katerina I mean, they even told me to read books by Indie authors, disabled authors, BIPOC authors, all of which I read. I support any author that wants me to read and review their book. Yet, they acted like they knew the types of authors I actually read... it was a sad display of toxic bibliophilia. It opened my eyes to the dark and toxic underbelly of the reading community for sure! 3mo
RamsFan1963 @Nerdy_Bookworm Yeah another reason I stay away from Facebook. So many people there, not all but some, use the site to make themselves seem bigger and better by putting down other people and the things (books, movies, TV shows or music) they enjoy. As I get older, I find I have less and less tolerance for that kind of small minded petty bs. Like @BookwormM said F**k them! 3mo
Texreader @Suet624 Ditto! I don‘t recall seeing that behavior on Litsy but if I did I‘d unfollow in a heartbeat. I don‘t need that sort of grief in my life and Litsy gives me too much joy. So sorry @Nerdy_Bookworm we Littens stand with you! 3mo
Nerdy_Bookworm @RamsFan1963 I'm honestly on the verge of just abandoning my facebook. Like, I'll keep it up, but I won't use it because it's a cesspool of toxicity and I don't have time for that shit anymore. I'm almost 30, I've dealt with negativity for too long and I just want to enjoy what I have left of my life, around positive and supportive people! ❤ 3mo
Nerdy_Bookworm @Texreader Litsy has been nothing but amazing! I absolutely love this community and my fellow Littens because you're all so supportive, kind, and positive! ❤ 3mo
Suet624 @Nerdy_Bookworm your last comment makes me so happy. ❤️❤️❤️ 3mo

I'm so excited to be reading this! I underestimated it thinking it wouldn't be as good as I thought because of all the negative reviews, but once I started it, I was pleasantly surprised. I'm absolutely LOVING this book so far!!! The author autographed it for me, and sent me two other autographed copies for a giveaway on Instagram! Ill share a photo of the autograph. This may be one of my all-time favorite books I've read this year! ❤

Rendezvous In Chambery | Paul V. Ward
Bailedbailed

Sometimes when reviewing books, you come across a book that you just cannot finish, and this book was it for me. I really wanted to like this book, and the author and his friends had this book so hyped up that I thought it would blow my mind away. Sadly, that wasn't the case. The characters were so unlikable, the dialogue felt like a B-Movie script, and the sexual component felt like the author was trying too hard. I have to rate this a half star!

Continuing 'Cemetery Boys' tonight. I'm pretty much mad at every character except for Yadriel, Catriz, and Maritza right now. I only hope that Yadriel gets to be a Brujo, and that he gets recognized as who he really is. I'm tired of jerks misgendering him and referring to him using his deadname!!!

I'm ecstatic to report that chapter 2 has been finished and chapter 3 is about to be started! I'm so proud of myself because I usually give up by now and put the project on the back burner only to forget it and never pick it up again, but this book is coming along nicely!! Remember, even if it's a little progress, it's still progress and it deserves to be celebrated! ❤

Nerdy_Bookworm Thank you so much! I'm a firm believer of writing with pen and paper for at least the rough draft! I will hopefully have a typewriter soon so I can take it to that for the next draft! 😊❤ 4mo

Guess what Littens? I'm back! I apologize for the hiatus, but life has been getting in the way. Since my last post, I have become a book reviewer on Instagram, and I get paid to do book reviews for the Online Book Club website! I have also started writing again and I have three books going that I hope to publish all at around the same time! I've missed you all and it feels so good to finally be back! ❤

I have decided to write a short story anthology as a way of easing into writing a novel. So far, I have a short story called 'The Echo Chamber' in mind. I could use some ideas for more short stories! Feel free to drop some ideas so I can see what I can make of them!
