Blogger Appreciation week



This week is Blogger Appreciation week!
I wanted to highlight some of my most favorite blogs, because when I started my blog I didn't realize how big and diverse the blog world actually was. All's I knew was I wanted to talk about books I really had no clue about blogging.
When you first start it can be very intimidating people talking about ARC, IMM and Publishers..what!?
But I met some nice people alone the way who answered my questions and where so friendly as well as having kick ass blogs so please check them out! :)

These are in no particular order!

Readingteen.net This blog is hot! I love it, they are so friendly and wont hesitate in answering questions or helping you. They have really neat giveaways, I won my first ever contest over there. They also have a reading tween blog for younger readers which is also just as good.

Mickey @ imabookshark.blogspot.com This site has some rocking giveaways and Mickey always gives great reviews, whether its good or bad shes 100% honest and I love picking up a book after reading a review she has done on it. She is also really nice about tweeting and re tweeting and a great girl to get book ideas from.

Andra @unabridgedandralyn.blogspot.com This blog I love to death its always up to date with awesome reads. Andra is a very funny girl with a kick ass personality which I think shows through in her reviews. Not to mention she does a lot of fast twitter giveaways.. who doesn't love that!

Joy @ joyousreads.blogspot.com Although her blog is new it came with a huge bang lol and made a quick impression on me.. its full of awesomeness! Joy is really sweet and her blog is always jumping with fantastic giveaways so be sure to check her out.

Obscuredvixen.wordpress.com Another fairly new blog I feel making a huge statement, author interviews, giveaways, fabulous reviews and an awesome chica who is always around to answer your questions or share an opinion, to re tweet links and help you gain followers ... just awesome.

Sweetmarie-83.blogspot.com Just like the name says Marie is so sweet her blog is awesome and everybody check her out now because her debut novel is about to hit shelves and its going to be amazing. She is one to watch for sure!!!

fuzzycoffeebooks.com I love this girl's reviews whether good or bad she will tell it like it is. But she will always explain why she feels the way she does and I find it so refreshing to read something like that.

Loretta @ betweenthepagesreviews.com/ I love her blog and especially the IMM video's! I find them epic - she reminds me of myself.... mommy by day, while battling a hubby with a gaming addiction = dito! LOL... Blogger by night. She is so friendly and her blog is one of my favorites.

http://ladybugstorytime.blogspot.com/ This blog is awesome with great reviews and giveaways... Kristina is so sweet with leaving comments on your blog and giving her opinion with ways to help you.


These blogs represent to me what book blogging should be about and they make me want to do it.
