Book Blogger Hop! September 17-20

Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted over aCrazy-for-Books where "book bloggers and readers can connect to find new blogs to read, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!" It lasts Friday-Monday each week, so if you don't have time to join today, you can still join later. It's easy to participate! Then take some time to visit blogs listed on the Hop. If you start following someone through the Book Blogger Hop, leave them a comment and let them know! 

Question/topic of the week: In honor of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, let's take time this week to honor our favorite book bloggers and why we love them! 

I regularly read several great book blogs, but since I don't have time to mention them all, I'll just talk about the handful of blogs that I linked to in my sidebar and explain what I love about them. 

Tattooed Librarian - What's not to love about a blog by a  YA-reviewing librarian-in-training? :) She hosted the Teen's Top Ten Challenge which I participated in. 

The Story Siren - This blogger is pretty much a superstar in the YA book blog world. She consistently writes quality reviews, provides awesome giveaways, and hosts the popular meme In My Mailbox. Plus, I'm really excited to be part of her Backstage Blogging feature! (And she's a fellow Hoosier, which makes her extra cool in my book.) 

Emily's Reading Room - Great reviews and features, including Ask HTMiLy which gives helpful tips and tutorials to bloggers

Book Love -A blogging school librarian. We seem to have similar taste in books, so I know if she gives it a good review I'll probably like it too!

A Trillian Books - I like her feature called "Read My Review" in which bloggers post links to their reviews on a certain topic or genre in order to generate more comments on review posts

Crazy-for-Books - Of course, there's the weekly Book Blogger Hop! I also enjoy the reviews, guest posts, and awesome giveaways. 

Mel's Books and Info - A teen librarian and fellow Hoosier. I enjoy reading her perspectives on books and library-related things. 

Reading with Tequila - A favorite feature is this blog's discussion posts - there are always great questions to ponder and discuss with other bloggers. 

Of course, there are many other wonderful blogs out there that I read, but I thought I'd limit myself to just the buttons in my sidebar or else I'd be on here all day! 

Leave me a link to your BBH and I'll check out some of your favorite blogs. Have a great weekend & happy reading!

Hi Super, I'm a loyal follower stopping by on the hop. So many of your recommendations have been helpful to me that I mentioned you in a recent post. I took your suggestion about Matt de la Pena, and my students love his writing. I just finished Leaving Paradise, and it is getting passed around among my students. There is a lot I can learn from you!

Hi, just found you and am following from the blog hop.
You have given an awesome list for me to go and look at.

If you get the chance would love it if you could pop by my blog. Still working out all the kinks in my refurbish but hopefully will have more book reviews up soon.


Aisle B said...

I agree with your list. Some amazing reviewers and you should count yourself among them too.

Keep writing and keep posting :)
