Slightly late as it was on the 1st, but I am God around here! I can't believe it's been four years. I was at my lowest, riddled with depression, bored to death, thinking good days would never come back, when I made the decision to create this blog. Boy, I had no idea this step… Continue reading Chocolate’n’Waffles turns 4! Happy 2020!
It’s been two years and eleven months since I launched Chocolate’n’Waffles (applause). During this period, I took two complete breaks; the first in July 2016 after having blogged intensively for six months, and the other earlier this year. Did I feel guilty? Yes. Did it do any good? Yes! Is it okay to put your… Continue reading Wednesday Light at the End of the Tunnel: Signs You Might Need a Break from Blogging for the Sake of your Sanity!
If you have read my recent posts or are following me on social media, you might know I have spent five wonderful days in London for the annual book fair! Truth be told, I am still pinching myself!

When I started blogging, I was looking for something to keep myself busy. I was stuck at home. My life was about getting up, watch hours tick by, and go to bed. I was going crazy and needed to find a way to use my brain. Books came back into my life, and the strange… Continue reading Why It’s Okay to Leave our Book Blogger Super Hero Costume in the Wardrobe!

Yes, you probably already know this because of either something I've written here at some point that did not feel natural, or because you've read me complain about it! No more complaining, I'm taking the matter in both hands and adding a little fun to… Continue reading And… Action! Chocolate’n’Waffles Goes Live!
Today I'm getting naked in front of you, friends, readers, strangers, passer-by... What's in a name? A name is an identity, your business card, what distinguishes you from others (Sorry to all the Emmas and Lohans who are five per class!). But a name can also be a coat, a mask, a glass wall between… Continue reading Blog Therapy n°5: What’s in a Name? Meet Meggy Roussel! Different Name,same Favorite Redhead
April, my dear April. I never thought I'd have any other reason than David Tennant's birthday to make me like you. Before 2017, you were only a month among others, preferably bringing a bit of sun. You kinda failed on this point, but you, my friend, has been very very good to me. What's New? … Continue reading April Wrap-Up
I am back! The WordPress log-in page feels unfamiliar, the administration board looks complicated and ominous, my fingers can't find the right keys on the board. This is it. I have lost the habit of blogging. Okay, enough with the drama-queen act. I can't believe I haven't posted in more than a week neither have… Continue reading Hello Stranger…
Hello! It turns out the Orenda Month had a bigger impact on me than I thought and I did not feel like writing... Until today! Instead of a review, I wanted to grab a glass and chat about what I call the Art of Reviewing, or how we blogger put our hearts and souls into… Continue reading The Pub Corner: The Art of Reviewing (discussion post)
Now that we met the trunk of the Orenda Books team last week, it is time to take a look at its inspiring and diverse branches!

Well, since… Continue reading #OrendaMonth The Team’s Tree: The Branches (part 1) @OrendaBooks
