I read pretty much any chance I get. I mostly read YA books but some adult ones as well. To me all books are precious gems and are meant to be treasured.

TGIF & Weekly Recap (13):

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at Greads. It's about recapping on what we posted for the week, and also asking our readers a book related question. The question posted by Ginger today is?

Book Blogs That Make You Smile: Pick 5 blogs you visit often, and think others should too?

Only 5? That is going to be really hard because there are so many awesome blogs that I follow. Well if I had to choose my top 5 here they are in no particular order.


Her blog is beautiful, and it makes me smile every time I see it. She always has some very honest reviews and great information. Some things to look for on her blog are:

~ Saturday Spotlights: In which she spotlights an Indie, debut, and/or self-publishing authors. She usually has a giveaway too!

~ Another good one is Shelf Cravings: Usually on Tuesdays these are a list of books that she really wants to read. I know pretty much every time there is a book I have never heard of that I must add to my TBR!

2.       Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I love her blog, and she is one of my blogger BFFs. She always has some great reviews and giveaways. She is constantly making me smile and laugh. She has great book recommendations and we always discuss what we are reading. She is a wonderful blogger and a great friend. Also her blog is very cute!

3.     Supernatural Snark

Jenny always has some wonderful reviews on all the latest books. She also has a list of upcoming books so you know what is about to come out. Her blog also features great Author interviews, guest posts, and giveaways. She is also very sweet and always has great comments.

One of her features that I look forward to, that always make me laugh, is her Cover Critiques. Its where she takes a cover and well critiques it. She has not done one in a while (hopeful grin), but they are always very clever and make me smile and laugh out loud.

4.   Bookish Brunette

I fricken love Ashley and her blog! It's completely adorable. I adore her reviews. They are short, to the point, honest and quirky. She always has something fun going on at her blog; great reviews, giveaways, quest posts and more.

~ One feature I love is Indie Frenzy: where she features an Indie author and has quest posts, reviews, author interviews and more. You need to check out her blog. I have not read a book she has recommended that I haven't loved.

5. Reading Angel

I love her blog too! Its so cute. She has great reviews, giveaways, and can always get me excited over books.

~ One of the features I love that she does is her In My Mailbox V-logs. They always, always, always make me smile, and laugh out loud. If I am having a bad day I can just go look at one of them and it makes my day better. Most importantly her IMMs introduce me to books I have not heard before. I then have to go look them up, and I always add a bunch to my TBR pile.

Ok that was 5, but I'm going to list a few more that I just adore, so be sure to check these out too!

6. Candace's Book Blog Great reviews!
7. The Musings of Almybnenr Awesome blog.
8. Pure Imagination Adorable blog
9. Greads we wouldn't have TGIF without her.
10. Brooke Reports Super Funny

There are so many more, but this is getting very long. I follow a bunch of very awesome bloggers, and if you want to know more I have a list on the side bar of the ones I look at often. I love you all, sorry if you are not listed here, it doesn't mean your not awesome!

I just want to take a moment and thank all of those bloggers that have helped me, and welcomed me into the blogging world. My blog wouldn't be if it wasn't for your guidance and support. You know who you are! Thank you!
