Alright! I know I'm way, way late but work was just nuts today. However, today's theme is so good I just didn't want to pass it up.
So, according to BBAW's site, today we are supposed to:
Today you are encouraged to highlight a couple of bloggers that have made book blogging a unique experience for you. They can be your mentors, a blogger that encouraged you to try a different kind of book, opened your eyes to a new issue, made you laugh when you needed it, or left the first comment you ever got on your blog. Stay positive and give back to the people who make the community work for you!
So, I've been thinking about the bloggers I know and love, the ones that keep me going and who have really made me feel welcome in this massive playground that is book blogging. And here they are (in no particular order).
Small of Small Review - This girl always makes me laugh. I love reading her reviews (she writes these amazing, long reviews that are just so much fun) and I run over to her blog each time I see her opinion pieces because not only the content is always great, but the images she finds to illustrate her points are always, always, beyond awesome. Smalls always makes me laugh when I need it the most. And she has this whole section where she answers techie questions about blogging, how sweet is that? Plus I love that we have somewhat similar tastes but not exactly, so she's always pointing me in the way of books I wouldn't notice otherwise.
Kylie of The Talking Teacup - Kylie is my blog buddy extraordinary. We are always talking to each other and obsessing over our blogs together. She's one of the kindest people I've ever known and I love how she gets my craziness, and how obsessive I can get and she still puts up with me. We all need someone to listen to us, even at our most crazy, and in both life and blogging, Kylie is that person to me. And she's always coming up with cool things in her blog - like, it was her idea to do the Movie Challenge which I ended up loving.
Rowena of The Book Scoop - I love that Rowena loves fluffy books like me, and I love reading her reviews. I know I can trust her when she recommends me a book I haven't tried yet, because our tastes are very alike - though she's far more open to new authors than I am. I love her Book Watch feature and even her grading system, and how she always has something positive to say about the books she reads. She's one of the nicest, classiest reviewers out there.
Carrie of In the Hammock Book Reviews - Carrie has introduced me to some seriously awesome books. Some that I loved instantly - like the Goddess Girls Series - and others that I wouldn't have noticed otherwise. She's a big reader of romance like me, with more adventurous tastes, so I always know where to go when I want to try something different in romance.
Anyway, :) These awesome ladies have made blogging such a nicer experience for me, so thanks!!!!
