Blogger Shout-Outs #15 - TONS of good links this week!



This week has been pretty freaking spectacular on the book blogs, my friends!  I found so much good stuff that I just had to stop adding links at one point because I was getting tired. And I didn't do this all in one night!

Not only were the discussion posts plentiful, but so were the reviews!  Great fantastic review work, bloggers!  I give you an honorary medal. Writing reviews is challenging and this week probably didn't make any of us any review-writing happier, so kudos to you all.  You ass-kickers you.

 Tell me! What is your favorite shout-out this week?

1. Kim's review of Without You, There is No Us by Suki Kim @ Sophisticated Dorkiness.

4. Tif's re-review of The Discovery of Witches, a book I am reading now.
