"What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"
I laughed a little when I read 'giveaways' in that question simply because I never win at any of them. =X To be fair... I only ever really enter giveaways on my one friends blog. I'm a giveaway enterer slacker. Speaking of which, I might be posting a giveaway on here soon.... if I get around to it.
What I really enjoy is reading what other people think of the books I have read or am curious in. I enjoy seeing some of the books that are due out which I might not have heard of yet. Really, that's what makes me happy. I don't want to read reviews that are talking about the rhetoric of a book... only once in a blue moon do I find myself interested in that. What I want from a review is to feel like I am hearing an honest opinion of what a person thought of a book, as if I am a part of a conversation with them. Sitting down and discussing this awesome/horrible book they just read where I could join in about what I loved and hated. That's what I look for in a book blog and what I enjoy reading the most.
Update:I did a guest post, check it out! There is a whole slew of Christmas related posts on that blog right now and they're all so cute!
I got my Christmas Tree!
And I did blog posts on Shattered Mirror and Girl with a Pearl Earring.
This coming week I'll have reviews up for Simple Times and Just a Snowy Day.
Speaking of snowy days, we're due to have a brief period of snow this afternoon. It was just flurrying a little, I hope we get more! And Sunday we're due for a rain storm which I hope is just snow.
Today I'll be busying myself with job applications, reading some Dickens, and baking a gluten free chocolate cake for a job party. I'll also, likely, be drinking this:
I love all things pumpkin and literally squealed in the middle of the grocery store when I spotted this. Finally some yummies for the people with lactose issues!
Have a great weekend everyone!
