Book Blogger Hop (10)

Book Blogger Hop is a fun meme hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy For Books. This is a great way to discover new blogs and connect with more people. If you'd like to participate, visit Crazy For Books where she explains how it works.

This Week's Question/Topic:
 
In honor of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, let's take time this week to honor our favorite book bloggers and why we love them!

Wow what a tough question! I have a number of bogs that I have on "speed dial" but I don't have all night so here goes:

Ari from Reading in Color because she's so awesome really. Her blog emphasizes on books by or about people of color. It's so different and informative I couldn't help but love it. I'm fairly new to blogging still and she was nice enough to even speak to me and give me recommendations. She has truly inspired me to make more of an effort to find those hard to reach poc books and bring them to the light.

Eleni from La Femme Readers because when you read her blog, you can tell that she's spent a lot of her time into it. Here Tantalizing Future Reads feature is epic. She's such a sweetheart and I was happy to meet her briefly in person at BEA. Plus, she's a fellow New Yorker DUH!

Princess Bookie because she's pretty much the person who encouraged me to begin blogging. We met from another book swapping site and the rest was history. She explained to me how much I was missing out on and pretty much gave me advice and answered all of my silly questions.


And there it is. I wish you ladies continued success in blogging and everything else!
