Jane Giveaway, our weekend at the Brooklyn Book Festival, and Book Blogger Appreciation Week, it seems like there's so much going on (though it all revolves around books so we can't complain)!
This is our first year participating in Book Blogger Appreciation Week and we're really excited about it. Our first BBAW post asks us to share a great new book blog you’ve discovered since BBAW last year or share the very first book blog you discovered.
I can't pin point the very first book blog I discovered. It seemed like I had one, two, and then the list quickly grew exponentially! I can say that the first one I remember reading with any kind of regularity was Adele's Persnickity Snark. Adele always has something smart and thought-provoking to say and creates interesting dialogue with her non-review posts about the industry or YA genre itself.
Two other blogs I can't overlook are Emily and Her Little Pink Notes and Forever Young Adult.
On my other blog I called Emily my chick lit soul mate after seeing she loved the vastly underrated Family Fortune. Plus, she recommended If Andy Warhol Had a Girlfriend which was probably one of the best chick lit books I've read this year (PS. she's having a giveaway on both book that you should totally check out). Her reviews are always fun and thoughtful, but more than that her blog really lets you get to know her and feel like she's not just a fellow blogger, but a friend.
The ladies at Forever Young Adult constantly make me giggle. Between their Hunger Games drinking games, hilarious reviews, and recaps of shows like Pretty Little Liars and Vampire Diaries, they've created an inventive, fun blog that gives us (ahem) older young adults a place to gush and squee without shame.
So those are my first treasures. I can't wait to see what other new blogs I find for next year!!
