Blogger Shout-Outs, Numero 12 - The Short 'n Sweet One



Last week's shout-outs were jam-smacked-packed.
This week's is a little (okay, a lot) more condensed (partially because blog reading goes to a minimum when I'm sick), but still includes some really great links to check out!

What is your favorite shout-out this week?


BEST BOOK REVIEWS I READ THIS WEEK:



1. Ryan's review of The Thinning Years by Jon Derek Croteau is moving and heartfelt, and I want to read this book so much.

2. Jill @ Rhapsody in Books reviews The Taking by Kimberly Derting.

3. Kristen of The Book Monsters has me wanting to read Rain Reign by Ann M. Martin, about a young girl with Asperger's Syndrome who is obsessed with homonyms.




AWESOME DISCUSSION/NON-REVIEW POSTS TO CHECK

OUT:



1. Jamie @ The Perpetual Page-Turner discusses not feeling guilty about her reading anymore.  Down with "guilty pleasures", up with being proud of loving what you love!

2. On BookerTalk, An talks books from Belgium!  Love it!  There is also a great piece on whether writers should be free to write about anything they choose.

3. Melissa @ The Book Binder's Daughter posted an awesome, and very relatable, I might add, list of how Indie Authors had won her over.




UPCOMING/CURRENT BOOKISH EVENTS:



1. Ti started her readalong of Something Wicked This Way Comes this week.  

2. Trish is hosting a readalong for Drood by Dan Simmons.

3. There is a Biannual Blogathon Bash going on, which I found out through Tanya of Mom's Small Victories.  Challenges to help you work on your blog!


GIVEAWAYS:



1. Mandy @ I Read Indie is giving away 2 books by Lila Felix, an author I adore as well.  From there you can follow links to more giveaways.

2. Tamara @ Traveling with T is giving away Harlequin Rugged Cowboy books. 

3. About to Read is giving away the Snow White Collection by E.L.F.
