An Early Hiatus

Hey there book nerds,

We three here at Booked All Night have read a great many books over the past 300+ days. With everything that has happened this year and the seasonal change, it’s time for us to read for fun and not for content.

We’ll be hibernating for a little but we do have things planned for you in the meantime.

Make sure to check out 25 Days of BookRecs, our annual posting of 4 and 5-star book reviews which we posted over the year. It’s a great way of getting ideas for the gift-giving season as well as for building up your TBR.

Also, check out our podcast and make sure to subscribe to the mailing list. We’ll be posting the games we’ve played with our author guests and we want you on that mailing list so you know about who’s coming to visit so that you can add your questions to our interviews!

Writing Spaces and Retreats Booked All Night

Writing Spaces and Retreats

This week we had the quintessential Spring writing chat: what to do about our writing spaces and where to take them. Writing spaces have shrunk during the pandemic and many coffee houses still aren’t offering in person seating. How do we writers get away and respark our motivation when we don’t have the space to stretch our creative muscles? The answer: writing retreats. But are retreats worth it? That and more on this week’s episode.
