September 10-14 is Book Blogger Appreciation Week. Day one's topic is appreciation and participants are asked to share some of the blogs they read daily and why. It is always hard to choose but here are some of my favorites:
BookNAround: Kristen has posted about many books which make their way onto my TBR and I find I like a disproportionately high number of the books she spotlights during her "Waiting on Wednesday" posts. In addition, her reviews are well-written and witty.
BookChickDi: Diane is a fellow NYC blogger and we have been able to attend some NYC book events together (although not nearly enough!). We have very similar tastes in books - I check her blog often to see what I need to read next because if she liked it the odds are very high that I will like it too!
Bermuda Onion: Kathy is one of the first book bloggers that I followed when I started book blogging and I will never forget how welcoming she was - for many weeks, she was responsible for the few comments I received on my early posts. I have had the pleasure of meeting her in person and she is just as nice as I would have expected from her comments! She is an avid and diverse reader so check out her blog to see what is new each week.
Unabridged Chick I discovered Audra's blog because she is a participant in my Immigrant Stories Challenge - she posts smart reviews with great insights into each book.
Kristen's Book Nook Kristen's blog is new to me but I have fast become a fan. She posts reviews most days (something I envy these days!) and features books right in my sweet spot.
I feel like this list just scratches the surface - there are so many excellent blogs that I read each week but the post can't go on forever so there you have a sample of my favorite blogs. I am looking forward to seeing who the other participants feature so I can freshen up my reader!
