I Heart Book Bloggers [BBAW]

BBAWThere is no way I can create an exhaustive list of everyone who makes this whole book blogging thing brighter. We are a supportive group and we don’t shy away from proclaiming our admiration on any given day. You all already know I love you, right?

But one of the great things about book blogging is that there are always new players. They might be new to blogging or they might just be new to me. I am finding new bloggers all the time. It often starts with a random conversation on twitter about a book or a song or tv show and then the next thing I know, I am talking to this person every day, reading their blog, and picking up books they recommend.

So my take on today’s BBAW topic is to highlight a few bloggers who are new to me since last September.

  • Jen from Makeshift Bookmark (@makeshiftjen): Jen started her blog last fall but you would think she’s been around forever. She makes me laugh, understands my Michigan football obsession, and gives me AMAZING YA recommendations (like Shade/Shine).
  • Jamie from The Perpetual Pageturner (@pageturnerjamie) and The Broke and the Bookish (@brokeandbookish): I am pretty sure we first bonded over music the night I was drunkenly playing Apples to Apples while home for Christmas. See, that’s how memorable Jamie is.
  • Ginger from GReads (@greadsbooks): While we have been at least acquaintances for some time, it wasn’t until recently that I realized Ginger and I have similar taste in almost everything and should be BFFs. So now we are.
  • Sandy from You’ve Gotta Read This (@youvegottaread): I met Sandy in person at the UCF Book Festival in April. Now hers is one of the first blogs I read when I actually sit down and read blogs. Plus she is an awesome commenter.
  • Heather from Raging Bibliomania (@zibilee): Like Sandy, I met Heather at the UCF Book Festival. She is the Best. Commenter. Ever.

You should all know these ladies. If you don’t, you’re welcome. They are all awesome and have been a positive addition to my book blogging experience.

[Note: It’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week. I will be participating in a few of the daily topics this week.]

    I’m huge fans of Sandy and Heather too!! They are brilliant commenters and their blogs are so honest and real and responsible for adding way too many books to my wish list!

    Happy BBAW!

    I agree that Sandy is an insanely good commenter and just a wonderful person all around. Whatever she is reading, I feel the need to read too, because of her enticing reviews. A lot of these others are new to me, but that’s great because your pointing me in their direction means that I will have some wonderful new places to visit everyday! Thanks for the shout-out, as well. It made me very happy today!

    I completely concur: Heather rocks my commenting socks off every single post. Love her!


  10. Sandy September 12, 2011 / 4:16 pm

    You are just so darned awesome! I’m so glad I met you this year. I love everything about your blog…your choice of books, your travels, your easy personality. Reading your blog is like a breath of fresh air, seriously. And I agree with these choices. Heather is an amazing writer and an amazing commenter, and I feel lucky to call her a friend!


  11. Michelle September 12, 2011 / 5:28 pm

    There’s lots to appreciate in that list!

    Thanks for the recommendations — I’ll check out the bloggers I don’t already know! Thanks, too, for the Twitter handles, very helpful. I like your way of narrowing down the prompt a bit. It’s rather overwhelming otherwise!

    Sounds like great blogs. I’ve never heard of any of them. But that gives me a chance to check them out. Thanks for sharing and introducing them. I do follow some of your commenters though. Hey everyone.

    Happy BBAW!

    Hope to stay connected.

    New follower.

    A lot of great blogs to add to my list. Thanks!
