It’s All About Books goes #Litsy !!

Confession: I hadn’t heard about this bookish App until earlier this week. I’m not sure if I’ve been living under a rock or if it’s just that I don’t really use a lot of Apps in general on my phone… But after having great experiences joining both Twitter and Instagram this year, I decided to give this one a go.

What is Litsy all about? It’s a free App you can download on your phone and share book reviews, quotes and other bookish posts with fellow book lovers. As the official Litsy website puts it:

I’ve been asking around about this App on Twitter and people seem pretty positive about Litsy… So It’s All About Books now officially has its own Litsy page!

Feel free to follow me at yvo_about_books . (The same username as my Twitter and Instagram accounts)


So far I’ve managed to spam my new account with a bunch of reviews of a few of my favorite reads, but I will keep uploading new content during the next few weeks.

Feel free to add me if you have a Litsy account! I will always follow back. 🙂

Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge; Take Two?

Ok, so this happened the other day. Somehow I have managed to reach the magical mark of 100 read books not even six full months into 2017!! I already knew I was probably going to reach the mark with time to spare after having read 194! books last year and 185! in 2015, but still… I can’t believe it is not even July yet and I had to renew my Goodreads challenge already.

Who doesn’t love the Goodreads stats page?! I’m shocked by just how many books have received either a 4 or 5 star rating this year… Normally I have way more books with a lower rating, so I’m definitely happy to see this stat every time I visit this page. Shows that I’ve been quite lucky with my reads this year I guess. Another fun fact: no less than 74 books were actually ARCs. I really have to read more of my own books in the second half of 2017!

I wasn’t sure how much I should increase my Goodreads challenge, but I’ve decided to not stress myself too much and change it into 175 books. Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge; Take Two… Here we go!


Somehow I’m still 20 books ahead of schedule, so if I manage to keep up the same pace I will be ending up having to change it once again. xD I seriously don’t know how on earth I’ve been able to read this much so far haha.

Have you joined the Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge? How are you doing so far? Feel free to comment! 🙂

Say hello to little Delilah Bard!

Those who follow my Twitter/Instagram account might have already noticed, but after long thinking we decided to adopt another kitten last Thursday. Meet little Delilah Bard, Lila for short! (And yes, that’s a Shades Of Magic reference. 😀 ) The poor thing was found abandoned when she was a baby and is now about six weeks old…  Adopted from the local animal rescue center.

She’s already feeling at home and shows her strong personality: strong-willed, adventurous, always looking for trouble, afraid of nothing and a true survivor, just like the original Delilah Bard. ❤

Photo spam ahead!!

It’s All About Books is now also on Instagram!

I have never considered creating my own bookstagram before, mostly because I (UNFORTUNATELY) don’t own as many physical books as I would have liked due to the country I live in, and tend to read mostly e-books on my kindle. I’ve learned to love my kindle, but it’s still not the same… Then I saw this post at Lectito with 20 January Bookstagram favorites and I just couldn’t resist the opportunity to gawk at all those gorgeous bookish photos anymore. So… It’s All About Books is now also on Instagram!

I’ve added a few photos since I started my account last week, all either with my kindle or furry friends… Although I’m hoping to start taking photos of some of the physical books I own soonish. I’ve been too busy browsing other bookish accounts for now; my thumb is getting tired of hitting the like button all the time haha.

Feel free to follow me at yvo_about_books so I can start stalking your bookish photos as well. 😉 😀

It’s All About Books has reached 1.000 Followers!

1000followersthankyou

I almost spit my coffee right back at the screen when I opened my blog this morning… I stared and stared at the right side of the page, wondering if my eyes were playing tricks with me or if the coffee was making me see double. But no, there were actually FOUR numbers before the word ‘followers‘!

1000followersblog

I’m not sure when exactly this happened and I wouldn’t have dreamed of this many people wanting to read my random bookish rambles when I first started It’s All About Books. This has totally made my day!! Thank you awesome fellow book nerds, you guys rock my socks!! ❤ ❤ ❤

A new year means new beginnings… And that doesn’t only mean freshening up my blog. (Like the new headers anyone?) I have been toying with the idea of creating a Twitter account for my blog for quite some time already, but it seems like I have been procrastinating a lot in 2016. Oops? Yesterday I finally gave in and after a few false starts I am now the proud owner of my very own Twitter page.

I’m still figuring out how everything works (yes, I admit I’m a totally Twitter Noob), but I have already made a start following fellow bloggers/authors/other bookish pages since yesterday… There is still a long way to go though!

Feel free to add me at @yvo_about_books . I will be looking forward tweeting with everyone!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Today it is December 25th which means it’s time to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!! I’m actually scheduling this post… In Argentina they celebrate mostly during Christmas Eve and it goes on until late, so I will be either still sleeping and/or nursing a (food) hangover when this is published haha. I hope everyone will have a excellent time! I will be back next week with a few pending reviews.

I wanted to end this post with cute Christmas photos of my furry friends, but they refused to stay still with the hat on. xD So here are a few pictures of cute kittens instead.
