Blogger Shout-Outs - Spooky #13



It is the 13th installment of the Blogger Shout-Outs, and in October no less! 

Lots of great reviews, discussion posts, and giveaways for you to peruse!  What is your favorite shout-out this week?


BEST BOOK REVIEWS I READ THIS WEEK:



1. Katie @ Words of Worms wrote a cute review of her feelings on The Magicians by Lev Grossman.  She's not sure how she feels about it, but she gives enough info so you can see if you think it might be for you. Perfect!

2. I put Laugh with the Moon by Shana Burg on hold after reading the review at Peaceful Reader.

3. Sweet Unrest by Lisa Maxwell is on my radar after reading a guest post about the book by the author on Xpresso Reads.

4. Trisha @ eclectic/eccentric reviews all things Veronica Mars.

5. I've read Anya's Ghost but John's enthusiasm at The Book Mine Set is so contagious I want to re-read it. 

6. If you read one review of Lena Dunham's book Not That Kind of Girl, make it the one at Books Speak Volumes.

7. I need to get my hands on The Missing File by D.A. Mishani thanks to the review at Man of La Book.

8. A book full of Literary Tattoos?  Don't mind if I do.  Thanks, Gail!
