It’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week. Woot woot!! Yay, and as my first task, I get to appreciate all my favorite blogs that didn’t get nominated. So, here I go!
Book Chic was my second inspiration for starting this book blogging business, so of course he gets top spot here on my appreciation list!! (My first, The Page Flipper is also a finalist). Besides, James is just a rocking reviewer anyway :D
Bookluver-Carol is also just an all around awesome reviewer. I love chatting with her about books, because she's nearly always reading something great. My Amazon wishlist is a whole lot longer because of her!
Steph of Reviewer X is definitely one of the coolest reviewers in the business. Her reviews are seriously like no other and extremely thorough. And, she runs this totally awesome link roundup with Kristi of The Story Siren every week! Talk about hard work!
Tasha from And Another Book Read is another fabulous reviewer. Plus she's got frequent and also fabulous author visits I love to read (or skim if I'm super busy!). Tasha's reviews also help my Amazon wishlist grow.
Kelsey from Reading Keeps You Sane always makes me wish I discovered the joys of book reviewing a couple years ago, just because she's a great reviewer and younger than me. Plus it helps that I *helped inspire* her to start book blogging. Very cool!! Also, I think her really cool blog layouts should be mentioned because they're always so colorful and creative, not to mention gorgeous!
Dominique of The Book Vault is yet another fantastic reviewer. I think it's so cool that she was the YABC teen Demi-Goddess (resident teen reviewer) only a couple of years ago. YABC is one of my favorite book websites, and her ex-position (currently held by The Page Flipper) is what I secretly aspire to be (or not to secretly). I think it would be way cool to review for one of my favorite book websites ever!
Last but definitely not least, I believe The Compulsive Reader also deserves honorable mention for being such a long-standing and remarkable (I'm starting to run out of adjectives!) reviewer. She is seriously like the meaning of book dedication with new reviews (or at least something) nearly every day!
(Did you notice how I tried to coordinate the colors of the reviewing blogs to their layout color scheme! Believe me, it's trickier than it looks with my limited color selection!)
