I'm Participating in ARC August!

ARC August is hosted by Octavia at Read. Sleep. Repeat. Simply, its purpose is to encourage readers to put a dent in those ARC piles. Personally? I have a hard time getting through my Netgalley approvals. I finally got my rating up into the 70’s but I’d really like to clear out the rest of […]

The New Rating System

The New Rating System

I finally got my act together and created a new, unique rating system for The Book Nut. Yep, they’re nuts, acorns to be precise! So this system will replace the stars but work the exact same way. They just have a bit more personality than the stars do, and they were really fun to make. […]
