Tea And Bisquits Book Discussions: Goodreads Organization

While over the holidays, as I was recharging, and renewing for the start of the new year, one of my goals was to work on Goodreads more. When I first started my blog five years ago, is when I also discovered Goodreads. I used to spend all my spare time I could on it. I fell in love with it, and to this day I still love it but the past couple of years I have been neglecting it more than I would like. My shelves have definitely grown over the years, but I wanted to make a goal to […]

Tea and Bisquits Book Discussions: What Makes Reading Christmas Romances Fun?

There is so much that I have come to love about those Christmas reads and especially around this time of year I just can’t get enough of them. In fact I don’t read them just around this time of year….I like to read them year round because every one of them is sweet and romantic and unique. What I love most about them is seeing the mix of Christmas Spirit and a romance together because I feel like they just seem to fit just right!! I love seeing the various Christmas traditions that are revealed and shown. There is a […]

Tea And Biscuits Book Discussions: How much loving do you need?

Posted November 30, 2015 by Loverofromance in Tea and Biscuits Discussions / 9 Comments

This week I would like to talk about sex in romance….now I believe that this can be a sensitive topic, but I also think it’s a debatable one and I am interested in seeing what you guys think or want in romance. I first want to talk about the evolvement of sex scenes in romance and how it has changed over the years. Now I haven’t been reading romance as some of you have. Only about 12 years, but in that time I have noticed a change in the amount of love scenes and not only the amount but what […]

Tea and Biscuits Discussions: What is missing from Historical Romance?

Tea and Biscuits Discussions: What is missing from Historical Romance?

There are many aspects of historical romance that I have found missing in recent years, aspects that made me fall in love with that genre in the first place. Many who are knew to the genre, probably won’t understand what I am talking about. But what I see in latest historical’s is depth and connection to the story, in many ways they are too light and fluffy and very unrealistic at times; almost too sugar coated.  I love seeing a story that is tough and gritty and full of deep emotion that a reader can easily connect with. I have […]

Tea and Biscuits Book Discussions: Are the prices of book right? Are you an E reader or lover of those printed works?

Welcome to another feature of Tea and Biscuits, where we discuss topics about books!! This week I want to talk about book prices and lately I have noticed that there is much controversy on this topic and I wanted to shout out my two cents worth. Before e-readers came along, I had no problem purchasing a book at full price which was usually between 5.99 and 7.99. Now depending on the country you lived in, the prices could go up or down. For example in Canada, the prices would be around 7.99-9.99 and Australia and the UK would be a […]

Tea & Biscuits Book Discussions: Realistic Characters

Tea & Biscuits Book Discussions: Realistic Characters

  I was thinking about this the other day and how if you have characters that you can relate with on a personal and intimate level, that is what can make or break a story. Characters are the heart of a romance, and I feel that if a author writes them in a certain way, then they can be what really holds the book together, even if the setting or conflict isn’t your favorite. Now I feel its vital that the creation of a character plays a pivotal role no matter if its a major interaction or a minor one. […]

Tea and Biscuits Book Discussions: Listen Up! Audiobooks

Tea and Biscuits Book Discussions: Listen Up! Audiobooks

  What I want to discuss today is the joy of listening to audiobooks. There are many pros and cons to listening to audiobooks but the pros far outweigh the cons. I fell in love with listening to audiobooks about five years ago. I had eye surgery for a detached retina, and for a month I couldn’t strain my eye. So there was no reading allowed—-WORST month ever!! hehe I used to listen to audiobooks when I was a teen but fell away from it till five years ago and the only books I could read were audiobooks. And what […]
