Why I’m on Hiatus (which I later start to ramble a bit)

How long am I on hiatus you ask?

I’m not sure

Why am I on hiatus?

Because…well there’s a story behind it which I will explain later

Are you going back to blogging?

Of course!

When are you coming back?

Still not sure.

Now here’s the story…Read More »

Four Year Blogerversery!

happy fourth blogerversery

Happy blogerversery to Hoot Reads Books!

This month has been pretty busy for me, and not just for my blog but I’ve been job hunting and attending interviews, so I’ve been under a lot of pressure lately. It’s because I’ve been so consumed with my job search that today, I admit that I almost forgot about my blog’s anniversary. But it’s a good thing I remembered to check what date it was or else I might have missed it completely!Read More »

Top Books of 2015



There is only 3 more days before 2016 and as everyone is planning to celebrate the coming new year with parties and booze, I am reflecting my year in 2015. I admit that 2015 wasn’t a great year for me. I failed to obtain a permanent job and was unemployed all summer so I’m hoping 2016 will bring in new possibilities for me as I continue my job search, but the year also gave me the opportunity to spend time with my blog and reading many great (and not so great) books. I feel proud with the selection of titles I read this year that I narrowed down my selection of top books of 2015. Here’s to another great year in reading and finding a job too so I can continue buying more great books!Read More »

Happy Blogiversary!

3 year blogerversery

Guess what? On this day hoot reads books was born and has turned 3 years old today! This is so exciting! I can’t believe it has been three years since my blog was born, and to celebrate I re designed my blog with a brand new theme and (somewhat) new banner! I also re opened my Facebook page so I will be going back to working on that again. Recently I have been using Twitter and Instagram to promote my blog and posts, but now I am working on expanding that further by returning to Facebook and Pinterest. If you like my blog, I encourage you to follow me on my social media channels!

I also want to take this time to say a big THANK YOU to all my readers and followers who have supported and liked my blog! I will continue to come up with new postings ideas and topics to make it more engaging, but if you have any ideas please share them and I might consider it.

Thank you fellow readers for showing some love for hoot reads books! A toast to another year of reading and blogging!

Introducing the Feels Readathon! Brought to you by @bribookishconfessions


Are you still having trouble completing a series? Do you have a pile of incomplete book series that you haven’t read yet? Summer is about to end so for those of you who are going back to school might want to use the free time you have now to finish those series right?

Well Brianna of Bookish Confessions has come up with an awesome idea of creating the feels readathon! For those who are new to a readathon (like myself) it is an event were you set goals for yourself to read as many books as you can in that time period. For example, you might say to yourself: “I’m going to finish reading 10 books in 1 week.” As a book blogger, I’ve come across different kinds of readathons but never have I participated in one that meets my needs. Until I met Brianna on Instagram and heard about her light-bulb idea that I wanted to share with you all!

So here’s the challenge. And yes there are rules or else this wouldn’t be much of a challenge to begin with! But the rules are simple. The feels readathon begins on August 10-17 and you can finish as many series as you can in that week. Brianna has come up with some challenges to make it fun like finish more than 3 series in a week, and try to make a word out of your TBR (to be read) pile using the first letter of a book title. She might also come up with other games like find a book that has a weapon in the story or something so more of that coming soon!. So get your series TBR out and join other booknerds in this exciting readathon as we enjoy the last month of summer! And don’t forget to spread the word.

I will definitely be participating in the feels readathon and before it starts, I’ll write a post on the series that I’ll be reading for that week. Cheers!

I’m on bloglovin!

Dear good readers,

I have exciting news! You might have noticed that I have a new button on my side bar. That’s because today for the first time on my blog, hoot reads books is now on bloglovin.

Why? I’ve been following a lot of book bloggers and not all of them are on WordPress. I’ve learned about bloglovin from other bloggers I follow, and by signing up for an account can I follow them. This makes it easier for me so that I don’t have to visit each blog, instead I can sign in and *poof* any new posts show up on my newsfeed. And as a bonus I also added my blog on bloglovin so that readers can follow me on there too.

Are you on bloglovin too? If so, could you follow me? And if you have a blog I would love to see it! Let me know in the comments form!
