Weekly Recap – The Layout Changes

GBB Weekly Recap

You might have noticed that the layout has been changing in the last week. Yes, I tried a different theme for a week but ended up not enjoying the end look so I changed it back to my original theme. I had a great time customizing the blog while trying to find new things toΒ make the blog a little bit different. There are some things I would like to add but they can wait for a while. I’m glad that the blog has been running wonderfully; there haven’t been any issues so far.

I’m glad that the blog has been running wonderfully; there haven’t been any issues so far. I’m trying to not use many plugins by deleting the ones I don’t use. It has been a struggle since I love adding new plugins and play around them.

Ghosted by J.M. DarhowerI also had a wonderful week, reading-wise. I found a wonderful book that I highly recommend. If you haven’t read Ghosted by J.M. Darhower yet, I hope you’ll give it a try one day. It is one of my TOP favorites and an awesome second-chance romance that would deeply touch your heart. My goal for next week is to read and publish more reviews.

I published another Recommend Me Post as well and it was about Second-Chance Romance. Thank you for sharing your favorites. I really appreciate each of your recommendations and comments. If you haven’t read the post, please check it out and recommend me your favorites if you haven’t yet. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the posts as well.

Recommend Me Books - Friends-To-Lovers Romance

I’ve just published the new one that I hope you can check out. This time is about Friends-To-Lovers Romance. Are you a fan of this trope? Please recommend me your favorites. πŸ˜€

I’m planning to write more discussion posts in the near future. I’ve had several ideas and started to write down the outline, but nothing is finale yet. I’ve written two discussion posts so far and have received positive feedbacks. Check out the list below if you haven’t read any of them:

I added two new books, Scandalous by L.J. Shen and Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward, which I can’t wait to start after finishing the one I’m currently reading, Misconduct by Penelope Douglas. I’m enjoying it so far and will publish the review two days from now.

Scandalous by L.J. ShenΒ Dear Bridget, I Want YouΒ by Penelope Ward, Vi KeelandΒ Misconduct by [Douglas, Penelope]

That’s all from me. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and week ahead. Happy reading. πŸ™‚

    Your blog looks amazing, by the way!

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      I’m loving Misconduct so far, Fran. Oh, I hope you’ll give Ghosted a try. It’s one of my TOP favorites this year. Oh SO good. πŸ˜β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ»

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      It also sounds YUMMY.. πŸ˜πŸ˜‹ Can’t wait to start it. 😁❀️❀️❀️

    Hope you've had another great week this week and looking forward to your next update.

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      Thank you. It’s awesome, Barb. One of the best I’ve ever read. πŸ˜β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ»

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      It’s awesome, Katie. If you love second chance romance, you’d love it. πŸ˜β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ»
      Thank you. I hope you have a wonderful weekend too.

  4. Greg Hill

    Glad you had a good week! Changing things up on the blog can be fun and stressful too, especially if something unforeseen happens! I like the look though, it’s very clean and readable.

    Looking forward to your new discussion posts. πŸ™‚

  5. I like the new look! I am glad everything is running smoothly for you blog-wise. I had a moment of panic the other day because I thought my computer had finally met its end. Fortunately, that wasn’t the case. I do need to think about replacing it though. I just don’t want to spend the money just yet.

    I like the sound of Ghosted. I will definitely add it to my wish list.

    I hope you have a great week!

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      Oh it must have been terrifying for you. I can’t live without my computer. I hope you’ll give Ghosted a try. It’s awesome!!!! πŸ˜β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ»

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      It’s fantastic, Maureen. Thank you. I hope you have a wonderful week and good luck with the new business. 😁❀️

  6. I have been seeing Ghosted everywhere. I had to add it to my TBR, sounds great. As far as romances go, I love just about any trope. I don’t like student-teacher romances or best friend’s dad/mom romance, but other than that, I am good to go.

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      Glad to know your favorite tropes. I would like to know your friends-to-lovers romance favorites. 😁

  7. I’m glad that the blog’s been running smoothly. My blogiversarry is slowly creepy up on me! (mid-Oct), so last week was the first time I extended my DNS payment for another year πŸ™‚ pretty exciting to know I’ve been with you people for this long!
    Also, this is the first time I’m seeing your theme on the PC (last time I as on the phone). I love it!
    Also, can you tell me about romantic suspense? I’ve heard about this genre lately, and although I don’t really read romance (almost at all xD), I’m very curious about how that’s different from just your usual romance book πŸ™‚ so I thought I’d ask you πŸ˜€

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      I hope you’ll give it a try one day. OMG, it’s awesome! Thank you, Michelle. Have a wonderful week too. πŸ™‚

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      Thank you for checking the post. Oh I hoe you’ll give Misconduct a try. It’s great. 😁❀️

  8. Beware Of The Reader

    Haha Geybie I wrote a post once about “shiny plugin” πŸ˜‰ I’m happy to see you have everything under control now! God knows it’s awful when the blog is not running!

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      I’ll check out the post. My mistake was I used lots of caching plugins. I would like to know what plugins you use. 😁❀️

      • Beware Of The Reader

        Well I use Akismet, Jetpack, Udraft (for back up), Ulitmate Social Media Plus, Mailpoet , Tiny MCE (my template does not have beautiful fonts) and Instagram Feed.

        • Geybie's Book Blog

          I use Akismet and Jetpack. I need to check out the rest especially ultimate social media plus and Instagram feed. Thanks for sharing, hon. 😁❀️😘

  9. I LOVED Dear Bridget, I Want You!!! Can’t wait to see what you think. Also, I am going to try Ghosted because you enjoyed it and it seems we have similar tastes in books!! πŸ˜€ Happy reading!

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      You need to read Ghosted, Elle. It’s BEYOND awesome. Trust me. πŸ˜β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ»

  10. Loved your review of ‘Ghosted’ πŸ™‚

    I must admit that if it wasn’t for my own personal tech support desl AKA hubbie, Fiction Books would probably have been on the scrap heap long ago, as I am pretty useless at anything other than basic maintainence. I think you do an amazing job and the blog looks great πŸ™‚


    • Geybie's Book Blog

      Thank you. Oh it’s all because of my hubbie too. I’m still learning but I’ll never do this all maintaining alone without his help. Hehe 😁

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      Thank you, Kathryn. I hope you can recommend me your favorite second-chance romance books. 😁

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      I hope you’ll give it a try. It is one of my TOP favorites. I highly recommend it. 😁❀️❀️❀️

  11. I actually just love the Tweak Me Theme even though there are others out there I would be willing to try, I like what you can do with it and how it adapts to your style. Hope you find a blog layout you love!!! πŸ™‚

    I am thrilled to hear that you are enjoying Misconduct, I listened to that last year I think and LOVED it. Looking forward to reading your review.

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      I’m back using tweak me again. I love this one better than the one before. Yay, glad that you loved Misconduct. My review will be up tomorrow. 😁❀️

  12. I really love your book recommendation posts, learned something new, added a bunch to my TBR πŸ˜€ keep them coming! Also, love the new layout

  13. Your blog looks great! I’ll have to add Ghosted to my TBR. It looks intriguing and I love a good 2nd chance romance. I also need to check out the friends to lovers recommendations post. That’s one of my favorite tropes – right next to the fake relationship. Have a great week!

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      Glad to hear you love them, Katherine. What are your favorite Second Chance Romance and Friends To Lovers Romance? 😁

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      I’m sorry it’s caused you a problem, Karen. It was SO frustrating for me too but I had no choice but to change it. Thank you, hon, for your support. 😘❀️

  14. So glad you liked Ghosted – it did sound good. One of these days I’ll get time to get back over to your recommend posts. They are a great resource. πŸ™‚ Happy Reading!

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      It’s one of my TOP favorites. I hope you’ll give it a chance one day. I loved it so much.

    • Geybie's Book Blog

      Thank you. I’m quite pleased with the one I’m using now. I think this is the best so far. 😁

  15. It looks really stunning Geybie, I LOVE IT!!!!

    I’ve started blogging in February 2016 and my current theme/lay-out is seriously like the 10th one I tried out, lol. There just never was a theme that met all my demands. And knowing myself, the current one isn’t going to last forever either buwhahaha. Nothing wrong with trying out some new lay-outs right? πŸ˜‰

    And I feel you on the plug-ins haha. I delete the ones I don’t use (anymore) and love prowling around, looking for new plugins to use! What are you favorites? Love to hear!

    • My favorite plugins are Jetpack, Askimet, oh I forget the others. Anyway, I love your layout. What theme do you use? Oh yeah, I’m still looking for a new theme. Like you, there is never a theme that met all my demands either and it’s SO frustrating. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜

      • haha yes the struggles are real haha.
        I’m currently using JUXTER and with this theme I can almostttt do anything I want to be able to do. So maybe I’ll buy premium for this theme in the future. But I wouldn’t be surprised either if I end up with a completely different theme in the future as well, lol!
