BBAW 2012 Day 1: Appreciate!

Okay, so originally, I was only going to participate in day 2 of Book Blogger Appreciation Week which is the interview swap (check out my interview with Anastasia at Bird Brain(ed) Book Blog tomorrow!), but there are SO many bloggers that I want to give shout outs to as well that I felt it necessary to make another post for the first day, appreciation day!

I have a lot of awesome blog friends, so this list will be long… Bear with me because they ALL deserve to be recognized!!

Candice @ The Grown-Up YA: Candice has been one of my favorite bloggers since I started my blog back in April. She’s been so much fun to follow and talk to about some really awesome books! I’ve actually found quite a few recommendations from her too! She’s got great taste (of course it is, because it’s similar to mine) 🙂

Tee @ YA Crush: Tee is another one of my favorite bloggers. I absolutely love her enthusiasm for blogging and when she’s writing reviews and posts. It’s just so much fun to read and I’ve picked up quite a few recommendations from her as well!

Dixie/Maggie @ Gone Pecan: Love these ladies! I’ve had quite a few conversations with them about books, libraries, plots, TV shows – So nice, great at commenting, encouraging, and have really made me feel like I fell into place in the blogging world!

Alyssa @ Books Take You Places: I think Alyssa and I talk more on Twitter than through our blogs… She’s so much fun, so easy to talk to, and another person who I felt that welcomed me into the blogging community even though I’m still pretty new!

Alison @ The Cheap Reader: Alison is great! I love how she’s involved with Book Hoarders Anonymous and I actually like that she reads a lot of different books than what’s on my shelf. I like to pick off suggestions from her reviews and widen my reading a little bit! Alison’s also another person who I talk to a lot on the blog and on Twitter and she’s just a great person to chat with!

Lucy @ The Reading Date: Lucy has an amazing blog and has read so many awesome books! I’m so inspired by her blog and I love reading her reviews. I always trust her reviews and they’re so well written!

Ashley @ Smash Attack Reads!: I absolutely adore her blog and her enthusiasm for blogging! She’s got great insights, great reviews, and it’s so much fun to follow! She probably doesn’t know much about me though since my work computer and her blog don’t get along (for some reason my comments never stick! Then again… I probably shouldn’t be commenting at work anyway!)

    I <3 you! This made me feel great, thank you so much!! I remember when I was BRAND new (I am still kind of new) and I felt like blogging was all clique-y and just…it overwhelmed me a bit. Plus, you are so easy to talk to!! We have many things in common, you are one of my favorites too!!

    1. Brittany

      Yay, thanks!! 🙂 Yeah, sometimes I feel like blogging tends to have cliques – it almost seems unavoidable based on who’s following who – but I do my best to talk to everyone (and butt my way into other people’s conversations) 🙂

    I didn’t know something like this was going on! I’ve been dealing with internet issues…
    Very nice of you to highlight so many bloggers 🙂 There’s some great ones on there that I follow too

  3. Roof Beam Reader

    Yay for Smash! She’s one of my favorite people in this crazy book blogging world of ours. I feel like I’ve known her forever (probably because we both got started at almost exactly the same time. Glad to see her getting some love!

    I’m off to “meet” a few of these others who are new to me.

    Happy BBAW!

    Lucy is great, and she will be one I will appreciate also. She was the first to welcome me to the book blogging world! I will have to check out the others I haven’t come across yet.

    You are so sweet, Brittany! Thanks for the shout out. If I made a list of favorite book bloggers you’d definitely be on it. Can’t believe I haven’t visited Smash Attack Reads before – what a great site!

    What your new feature on Friday? I am bookmarking this so I can come back and check it out!
    Your list of blogs is great. I love all of the ppl I listed, they are great blogging friends and IRL friends too. I am terribly shy and blogging has helped me a lot.
    Its more than books, its friendship and community. I love that!
    Have a great BBAW week <3

      We started a new feature called Casting Call in which we pick a book and we all pick actors we think would be great for the characters. It should be a lot of fun! Hope you check it out 🙂

  7. Candice

    You are too sweet! I love that you found my blog and I found yours and we’ve become bloggy friends! I agree we’ve both got awesome taste and I’ve added several books to my own list thanks to your recs! Can’t wait until our new feature goes up this Friday! 🙂
