Book Blogger Hop

Time for the Blogger Hop from Crazy for Books

What a great idea! I love following readers blogs almost more than I like blogging myself. What a great way to get out there and meet new people who share the same interests as you.

This Week's Question: In honor of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, let’s take time this week to honour our favourite book bloggers and why we love them.

I follow a lot of book bloggers and I love them all. I wouldn’t follow a blog I didn’t enjoy reading, so it’s hard for me to pick favourites. However there are four that I look forward to reading every day that deserve a shout out and recognition.
I Swim for Oceans – and not just because I’m featured on her blog today! The thing I really like about Melissa’s blog is well, Melissa! I always see her commenting on other people’s blogs and she is super friendly and nice. She’s also really supportive and encouraging to new bloggers. It doesn’t hurt that her blog is pretty awesome too.

The Story Siren – obviously. She was the first blogger I followed and to this day I look forward to Kristi’s posts. Not only do I enjoy reading her reviews, but she’s also my go to blog for finding out about new books. She also has incredibly alternative posts that are really interesting, informative and helpful to new book bloggers. I don’t think many people would argue if I said that her blog is one of, if not the best YA book blog out there.

The YA Book Queen – Lea is my absolute favourite reviewer and the only person who I can only say I’ve never skipped a word of her reviews. I love the way they are structured and her use of appeal words. I instantly know what kind of book I’m reading about in the first sentence. I LOVE the way she talks about the highlights and the lowlights of the book, I find them honest and really helpful.

All About {n} – I’ve been a follower for Nely’s for almost as long as I’ve been blogging. The thing that I really enjoy about her blog is that it is really eclectic. There are YA books and Adult books, books I’ve never seen reviewed before. It’s really refreshing. She also has really fun features (who doesn’t love looking at people’s bookcases) and great giveaways.

Hey Katie,
Thanks for always stopping by to leave lovely comments on my blog, they make me smile. I never realised that you had a blog too (maybe I missed it when I had a look at your profile) but I'm so glad I've found it now.

I'm following you, hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hi Katie, thanks for visiting my blog :)

I really like your blog, and your very precise rating system. It's a bonus that your reviews aren't too lengthy either, hehe.

Have a nice weekend! :D
