Lazy Sunday Thoughts: Awesome Bloggers and Challenges

Pin It

Ah, the internets. You can't Google something without there being thousands of negative posts about it. Even, dear friends, book bloggers. We're not perfect. We complain, say the wrong thing, do dumb stuff. But book bloggers are generous too. Some host contests and give books from their own shelves, paying for postage and schlepping those packages to the mailbox, they don't have to they want to.

I just wanted to give a shout out and a thank you to some bloggers who made my day in the last few months.


A big thank you to BiblioSue for sending me The Brontes Went to Woolworths after I mentioned I wanted to read it on Twitter. She sent me her own copy.

Thanks to Marci at Serendipitous Readings (don't you love her blog header) for The Postmistress. I won that one.


I also won Ash by Malinda Lo from Michelle at See Michelle Read's Literary Love contest. Thanks!

Can't wait to read these great books!

 I know I'm really late but thanks to Jeanne from A Cup of Tea and Cozy for Me for the Sweet Friends award. Mmmm...cupcakes!

Now for two new challenges I'm joining. These 2 are pretty manageable. 



Nymeth is hosting The 1930's Mini-Challenge. I'm reading The Brontes Went to Woolworth's and I'm sure I'll read at least one other.



Then Julie from Booking Mama is hosting the EW Summer Books Challenge. Since I'll be reading The Passage anyway, I thought I'd sign up as a Polliwog.

So that's my thoughts on this Sunday.

  3. That is so funny that you mentioned The Brontes Went to Woolworths! I had never heard of that one until about a week ago - we read it in a class I was taking! The discussion we had was really interesting - I'm excited to see your thoughts on it after you read it!
