I was trying to think of ways to interact better with the blogging community. I comment, I share, I like, but that is an interaction typically only between me and the blogger in question. And in a blogging community that is so large where there are new blogs everyday, why not highlight those that I’ve stumbled across, both large and small, new and old? So here are only FIVE blogs that I follow with their recent posts that I particularly enjoyed reading.
I discovered Pivot Book Reviews from the Book Blogger Love-A-Thon this February. And the feature that I am almost guaranteed to like is Cover Puppies. It’s a weekly feature where Becca gets her cute dogs to pose like a character on a book cover and then recreates that book cover with the doggie. I mean, how adorable and original! Her most recent one is for The One by Kiera Cass…which I’m dying to read!
I don’t think there is anyone who isn’t following Jamie! Her posts are probably some of the most original and personality-filled out of those I’ve found on the internet. She really makes it feel like you could really know her. I really enjoy how she doesn’t just post reviews, but personal posts. For example, like how social media has affected her reading life. It’s something that we can all relate to.
I think it’s safe to say that while we all love books, it’s nice to see different perspectives on them. I feel bad and I can’t remember when I started following Artsy Musings of a Bibliophile but the posts are fun. I am always a particular fan of posts that help explain things to me, and this guide to Edelweiss is particularly helpful with screenshots!
Nikki at Take Me Away was probably one of the first blogs I stumbled across when I first started blogging. And from last year, she has this awesome feature called Beyond the Book, where she talks about something based about a book that goes beyond the pages. Whether it’s a personal connection or even music videos that correlate to different parts of a plot. It’s a lot of fun!
When I think about it, the Book Blogger Love-a-Thon really did do crazy things to my blog reader as I discovered new blogs, like Paper Worlds and Swirls of Ink. Violet has a great variety in her posts, and while I particularly enjoy discussion posts, she doesn’t disappoint. Like how do you feel about that TBR and good reading months? She’s discussed that!
