Gushing with Caidyn and Chantel

Gushing with Caidyn and Chantel

Another couple weeks, another one of these! Let’s just hop right into it, shall we?

The rules are:

  • Pick one thing that you’re really into this week
  • Gush about it

Literally, that’s it. That’s all you have to do for this.

It’s not exactly a tag so there aren’t huge rules. It’s more for Chantel and I to branch out into some new things. This was created as a book blog, but we love music, TV, movies, podcasts, video games, etc. And we want to talk about it more with you.

Caidyn will be in blue.
Chantel will be in purple.

First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday

Hey, everyone! We wanted to remind you as well that we’re now only doing First Lines Friday as a bimonthly tag. We’ve replaced the other weeks with our new feature, Gushing with Caidyn and Chantel! The link will take you to our first week!

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Caidyn will be in blue.
Chantel will be in purple.

Gushing with Caidyn and Chantel

Hello! This is a brand new addition to our blog. We decided that our First Lines Friday were getting hard to generate with new books to feature. So, we decided to make this new thing up.

The rules are:

  • Pick one thing that you’re really into this week
  • Gush about it

Literally, that’s it. That’s all you have to do for this.

It’s not exactly a tag so there aren’t huge rules. It’s more for Chantel and I to branch out into some new things. This was created as a book blog, but we love music, TV, movies, podcasts, video games, etc. And we want to talk about it more with you.

Spam?

Hey, everyone!

We’ve been commenting on people’s posts, but we’re not seeing it show up! Such as Brittany’s lovely post about how problematic JKR is, Justine’s amazing rendition of our BW Mid Year Tag (!!!!), and our nomination for The Sunshine Blogger by Catherine. (These are the three we could think of off the top of our head, but yeah!)

We want to make sure that everyone sees our comments since we try to comment on posts every day.

We’ve seen posts from people saying that they’ve had the same issue, so we’ve been double checking our spam box for stray comments that have gone there.

Can everyone check their spam box to make sure they haven’t been sent there?
