The Love-A-Thon is hosted by the wonderful Alexa at Alexa Loves Books! You can learn all about what we’re doing at the previous link, but basically it’s a two day event to spread love and kindness to the book blogging community! It seems like something everyone needs right about now.
Mini Challenge: High Fives!
This challenge is to share your top five that have been making you happy lately – a book, author, blogger, genre, and bookish site! Here are my latest favorites.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas: This was the last book that really knocked my socks off. I was so impressed by the world-building, writing, and entire story. If you haven’t read an ARC of this yet, I highly suggest a preorder. You need this in your life ASAP!
YA Contemporary Romance: This is the best genre to read in February! I went crazy with Fantasy books in January, so I switched it up to some Contemporaries in February.
Kasie West: I loved The Distance Between Us when I read it last year and finally read On the Fence this year. I also finished Pivot Point earlier this year and plan to get to Split Second as soon as possible. I love her writing and the fact that she can write both contemporaries and sci-fi/paranormal books with ease. Such a great author!
Cristina from Girl in the Pages: I’ve loved getting to know Cristina over the past year. She’s a great Book Buddy and blogger! I gave her a little shoutout, along with my other Book Buddy yesterday, and loved what she said. We started our blogs around the same time and have been able to see each other grow and change. I’m so happy to have gotten to know her and can’t wait for more joint reviews and thoughtful comments <3
Goodreads: This is really the only bookish site I use regularly! I don’t buy a lot of bookish merchandise, too be honest, so I’ll keep my answer simple 😉 I love being able to see what everyone’s reading, organize my books, track progress, and plan out my reading.
I am literally SO TOUCHED to make your top five for the Book Blogger Love a Thon! 🙂 (I didn’t participate because I was really busy this weekend, but rest assured you would’ve made mine!) I definitely feel a camaraderie with the bloggers who all started out on wordpress last year, and it’s been amazing seeing us all grow and evolve our blogs and encourage each other to KEEP AT IT despite how stressful and busy life can be. I can’t wait to continue doing our book buddies reviews and I’d love to do/start even more features with you!
Yes exactly!! <3
I cannot wait to get my hands on Maas’ new book! I am heading over to say hi to Christina!
Missie @ A Flurry of Ponderings
It’s SO GOOD. I hope you love it! And yes definitely check out Cristina’s blog!
I loved A Court of Thorns and Roses! I think it’s going to be a really good series, but that isn’t surprising since Maas wrote it. lol 🙂
I haven’t read her other books but I need to now!!
Great post. I love Goodreads! 🙂
It’s so helpful!
