Top 10 Favorite Book Blogs

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is freebie and even though I'm a day late in posting, I decided I'd sit down and participate. Usually the freebie week's are fun to figure out which topic to do but right now my brain is too scattered to find one.  So...I'm doing what book bloggers do best, I'm using another bloggers idea for my Top Ten this week.

1. Somewhere Only We Know - This is my sister-n-law's blog and its her idea I am using for my post today.  But that's not why I am listing her first, well not completely why.  She is the reason I started my blog after blogging herself for about a year.  She and I share the same taste in books and we typically rate our books about the same.  She is an amazing person, an insightful blogger and a great friend.  So she takes spot #1.

2. The Story Siren - The first couple of months on my blog I closely followed several "big bloggers" to see how they did things and to learn.  Of course, Kristi is also the one who hosts In My Mailbox each week, and I, typically, faithfully participate in it each week along with hundreds of others.

3. Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer - Again another "big blogger" that I have followed since the beginning.  Kimba hosts the Sunday Post on her blog and I participate in that weekly too (with exception to this last Sunday - sad).  Kimba is also GREAT at commenting!  She, without fail, will comment on at least one, but usually more than one, of my posts each Sunday.  I've come to depend on and look forward to seeing what she says when she comes by.  Thanks Kimba!

4. The Broke and the Bookish - Honestly where would I be without all of these great bloggers who host meme's each week!  Their meme's have greatly exposed my blog to lots of new people and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to join in and participate.  The girls over at The Broke and the Bookish host Top Ten Tuesday - of course!

5. Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read - These ladies both host Feature & Follow - which has become my favorite meme to participate in every Friday.  The community of book bloggers is tremendously supportive of one another.  This meme expresses that support through the sole purpose of following one another.  Sure, all meme's expect you to extend the favor of commenting but this is the only one I know of that is a mandatory follow of one another.  Because of this one meme I have gained numerous followers and new friends!

6. I am a Reader, Not a Writer - Anything you want to know about Giveaway Hops, this blogger has it all!  When I wanted to get involved in some giveaways this year I came across her blog and was eternally grateful for her breakdown of hops going on through the year.  Now, she is favorite marked for easy access! 

7. Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf - This is one of the first blogs I came across.  And she features cats on her she was an immediate favorite.

8. Book Twirps - Because this is one of those blogs I look at and say "one day when my blog grows up, it'll be super fun and creative like this one...", and because this blog is the host of the December New Release Giveaway Hop that I am participating in.

9. Lunar Rainbows - Micheline was one of my first followers and she has been a regular commenter since the beginning.  She too, is a Twilight fan, so how could I not love her?  And we share the fact that we are both fairly new to blogging (she is about 4 months in and I am about 3 months in).

10. In only 3 months of blogging I have gained 228 followers through GFC, and without each of you, what would my blog really be but myself talking to....myself?  So even though I am technically (stealing) copying my SNL's #10, I wholeheartedly agree that I can't place a tenth person because each one of you deserves to be mentioned here.  Whether you are a stalker, a frequent flier, or a faithful reader, I appreciate the time it takes you to read my posts, to stop by and say hi and to follow me.  

Here's to a new year of blogging together and learning from one another!
