Thank you to everybody who stopped by and left comments on the Maw Books Blog this past month! I don’t think I could keep blogging without the response, so you definitely keep me going. At the end of every month, I highlight a few other book bloggers that I think you should visit!
- Ali from Worducopia. Ali is so much fun! She’s hosting the Diversity Rocks Challenge which I’m really, really regretting not joining. Ali seems to review a bit of everything. Graphic novels, literary fiction, young adult and more. Ali’s going to do the read-a-thon for the first year this time too. I’m glad I won’t be the only newbie!
- Suey from It’s All About Books. If you’re not friends with Suey, you are missing out. I was bummed when she wasn’t able to come to the Laurie Halse Anderson signing. I totally missed her. Suey and I have met on more than one occasion and she’s just as nice in real life as she is on her blog. Lately, Suey has been reading tons on young adult books. But who can blame her? They’re really good! Suey and Raidergirl3 from An Adventure in Reading are also the brains behind the Bookword Game. And if you’re a Josh Groban fan? Say no more. You have a new best friend.
- Chartoose from Bloody Hell, It’s a Book Barrage! I remember the very first time I stumbled upon Chartoose’s blog because I turned to my husband and said check out the name of this blog! I knew immediately how irreverent and fun she would be. I must admit she probably doesn’t think that I read her blog that often because I’m terrible at commenting, but I do. And you should too.
- Jackie from Farm Lane Books. I somehow missed having Jackie’s blog in my reader. I seriously do not know how that happened. That situation is now rectified. Sorry! Jackie reviews mostly literary fiction and is trying to make it through a bunch of prize lists like the Orange, Booker, and Pulitzer. Thinking about it just makes my head hurt.
- Marg from Reading Adventures. I wish I could read as much as Marg. She read 17 books this past month. Marg reads a lot of historical fiction and also blogs at the Historical Tapestry blog, as well as romance, mysteries, and young adult fiction. In addition to all the challenges that she does, Marg also finds the time to make beautiful cards as well. Marg has been blogging since 2005. That sure makes me feel like the new kid on the block!
- Em from Em’s Bookshelf. Em reviews young adult books. If you’re looking for a recommendation, head on over there. She’ll have one. I had to laugh. Em is taking on Maureen Johnson’s challenge to blog every day in April. And she’s going to buy herself peanut M&M’s if she does. Made me realize that I need to slow down! I think I’ll buy myself something if I DON’T blog every day in April. I wonder what would happen if I skipped a day? Wait. Nothing. Brilliant! Why didn’t I think of this before?
Thanks everybody for stopping by! I wish I could highlight you all. I was going to try to go for ten spotlights this month but my boys who are supposedly “napping” just found a bottle of spray suntan lotion and sprayed it all over their walls. Welcome to my life.
