Blogger Shout-Outs #20


Hey, friends!  How is 2015 treating you so far?

I have a few great links for you to check out, all gathered for you to help save you some time, not to mention share some love with my fellow bloggers. :)


MOST INTERESTING BOOK REVIEWS I READ THIS WEEK:




1. Shannon's review of Almost Famous Women by Megan Mayhew Bergman @ River City Reading

2. Rachel's review of Longbourn by Jo Baker @ Dashing Good Books

3. Review of New Amsterdam by Elizabeth Bear @ Nocturnal Book Reviews

4. Jill of Rhapsody in Books' review of Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley

5. Litha's review of Song of Blood and Stone by L. Penelope @ Victorian Soul Book Reviews



AWESOME DISCUSSION/NON-REVIEW POSTS TO CHECK

1. Karen @ One More Page talks about The Yearn to Learn.

2. Lisa @ Books in the Burbs put together a checklist for First-Time Bloggers.

3. April begs us not to forget that even if a movie adaptation rocks, the book still rocks harder!

4. Allison wrote a post I relate to- 5 Perks of Marrying a Non-Reader.

5. Chrisbookarama discusses how challenging ourselves to read books does not mean we are reading competitively with each other. She says what I've been thinking!  Take note HuffPo!

6. Now I don't normally send you off of blogs and into territory such as Book Riot, but since Tasha B. wrote it and since it is awesome, I am making an exception. Just this once.  Take a look at these beautiful illustrations done by Agameishi depicting The Tale of Genji.

7. Check out 14 Really Bad Movie Husbands over at Mysterious Bibliophile.  Do you agree?  I certainly do with the ones I have seen.

8. Check out Leah's Blog Planner and Reading Graph, both similar to my own, yet improved upon. I bet you love them, too!

1. Books 'n Bloggers - a thrice-yearly loved book swap is being held now.

3. If working out is a New Year's Resolution for you, why not join Readers' Workouts?
