BBAW: Gratitude is My Attitude

bbawThank you so much for the warm welcome into the book blogging community.  The last six months have flown by and I never knew just how rewarding niche blogging could be.  I was thrilled to be nominated (Mom, did YOU submit my name?!) for several categories and was over the moon to be shortlisted in two.  I appreciate the recognition but know that no matter how comprehensive, there’s no way BBAW could shine light onto every book blog out there.  That said, I’d like to add a few of my favorite book blogs that didn’t make the shortlists.  A visit to these blogs would be time well spent!

Amy Reads Good Books: Not only is Amy my BBAW interview partner, but she’s also a talented writer and lover of books.

Heather at Book Addiction:  Heather is at the top of my feed reader for alphabetical reasons AND she’s always one of my favorite go-to blogs for reviews that are honest and concise.

Lisa at Books on the Brain: Lisa was the first person to ever leave me a comment on my life blog, nearly two years ago.  For that reason alone–the encouragement to keep blogging when NO ONE was reading my ramblings–is enough for me to highlight her.  But Lisa also has great discussions, is cohost of TLC Book Tours, and has a real-life book club that I’d love to join–just a few more reasons to love her!

Jennifer at Literate Housewife: Not only do I adore Jennifer’s layout but I also enjoy her posts and reviews.  Learning that she started her blog to help give her life some balance was also impressive to me!

Vivienne at Serendipity: My go-to blog when I need a hearty dose of England!  V always has great pictures–of her books, scrapbooking pages, and tourist sites she visits.  She’s always quick with a comment and very friendly!

Steph & Tony Investigate: Not a books-only blog but worth a visit if only to read the wonderfully erudite book reviews. 

Write Meg! I love Meg’s blog–she and I have really similar tastes in books so this might be why I enjoy stopping by so much…but to be honest I think it’s really because she’s so friendly and nice–always leaving funny comments! 

And here are a few of the over 85 book blogs on my reader–I’m only sorry I couldn’t include them all!  I hope you’ll enjoy these blogs as much as I do. 

Thank you to everyone who visits, comments, or links Book, Line, and Sinker.  You help to make this blog what it is!

  1. Awesome! Thanks for introducing me to some cool blogs.

  2. One of these days I should just publish my reader! LOL 85 is nothing! I have way more than that in my reader…and I love them all.

    Thanks for the great list. those are all in my reader!

  3. Congrats and thanks for the list!

  4. Thanks for the shout-out, Nat! I really enjoy your spin on book-blogging, all of the op-ed pieces (if you will) you write about reading and books. I know that when you post, I’m going to be drawn into a thoughtful discussion about all things bookish!

    Congrats on your nominations, you really deserve them!

  5. Ooo! There are a few here I’ve never seen. Time to go exploring! Thanks!!

  6. Thank you dear!! You’re fantastic, and I love spending time at Book, Line And Sinker. All the books I’ve read based on your recommendations have been awesome, and I’m eternally grateful for you introducing me to Marcus Flutie, my new Literary Crush To End All Crushes. **sparkles** 🙂

  7. Thank you for the lovely write up. I love to visit your site too. You put ideas in to my head and give me lots to think about.

  8. You have great taste! I love your list.

  9. Thanks interview buddy! I can’t wait to spotlight your fabulous interview tomorrow!

  10. I absolutely love Steph and Tony Investigate! Will check the other blog you mentioned. 🙂

  11. I meant blogS.. lol.

  12. Nat, thank you so very much. It means so much to me to be included in your list along with such other wonderful bloggers.

    The funny thing about why I started my blog is that my goal for next year is to be more balanced I still feel like balance is such a huge struggler – but I’m a whole lot happier with my life today than I was when I started my blog.

  13. Great list … and I love how you wrote about each blog.

  14. That’s a great list – many of my favorite book blogs, too! 😀

  15. *grin* I KNOW my mom nominated me.

    Great list – off to check them out.

  16. First let me say how much I enjoy your blog. It’s become one of my favorite haunts, and even if I don’t comment, you can probably find me at least lurking in the corner over there.

    You’ve come up with a great list, many I’m not familiar with. So you can bet I’ll be doing a little more blog hopping tonight to check them out.

  17. is it only me or do you feel blog love guilt? all the great bloggers who are dropping by are in my feed reader but i didn’t include everyone in this post! ugh! that’s it, when BBAW is over, i’m taking the time to post my ENTIRE reader with LINKS. everyone should know how much i adore reading their posts!!

  18. It’s not just you. It was so hard to only pick a few to highlight!

  19. Thank you so much, Nat. It means so much that you spotlighted me! this post was so hard for me to write because there are SO many amazing blogs out there – it was so difficult to pick my “favorites”. I have like 30 blogs in my favorites folder alone! So it means even more knowing how many wonderful blogs there are that you chose to talk about MY tiny little blog! Happy BBAW! 🙂

  20. Thanks for mentioning these other blogs I have never heard of.
