Book Blogger Appreciation Week: Kick Off & First Treasures



Today is the first day of Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2010. This is my second year joining in the festivities. Last year I registered on a whim to see what it was all about. I ended up getting short listed for Most Extravagant Giveaways. I didn't win my category but had such a lovely time taking part and meeting new bloggers. This year's theme is A Treasure Chest of Infinite Books and Infinite Blogs. Each week there will be a different topic to post about, you can check out what each topic is here.

Today's topic is First Treasures: We invite you to share with us about a great new book blog you’ve discovered since BBAW last year! If you are new to BBAW or book blogging, share with us the very first book blog you discovered. Tell us why this blog rocks your socks off and why you keep going back for more. (description from BBAW site.)

I have discovered so many wonderful blogs since last years event it's really hard to pick just one. So, I'm gonna feature three blogs I've discovered in the last year that I really love.

All Things Urban Fantasy: One of my favorites. I discovered this blog through a friend, who had both designed our layouts. If your looking for anything or everything about UF, you sure to find it at this blog. Abigail writes intriguing reviews (I've discovered lots of recs through this site), her author content is one of the best I've seen. I love her guest author and interview features.

Tales of a Teenage Book Lover: I haven't come across many guys reviewing YA novels. But I did find Alex. I found this blog through the In My Mailbox feature at The Story Siren. Alex does a smashing job with his reviews. Your gonna find that he's reading and reviewing all kinds of YA books and I think that's great.


Manda's Movements: I discovered Manda's blog a few months back when she commented on one of my posts. So far I have been really enjoying her blog. This blog is just plain fun, in both design and content. I love that she reviews both books and movies at her blog.


I believe I mentioned this last year but for any new readers.... back when I first started blogging the first blog I read was Ramblings On Romance Etc..., and it's one I still read and love to this day. :)

This was a fun post to do. I look forward to reading other "First Treasures". Later today I will post my BBAW Giveaway.
