This is one of my favorite memes. I love that it’s only once a month, and I love that it’s all about showing love for our blogging friends.
Thanks so much, Kristin at Kristin Kraves Books, for creating it!
This was such a unique and bold opinion piece about Bookstagram, and whether or not it’s become too caught up in the ‘perfect picture’. I thought Camilla did a wonderful job discussing the Bookstagram world without alienating. It was particularly interesting because I’ve hesitated to throw myself into the Bookstagram world just for this reason. I try my best to take nice pictures, but it’s with my phone and regular ole house lighting. The Bookstagram world can feel intimidating.
It’s crazy how much goes on in the publishing/blogging world that we’re not even aware of. I understand how rights world, but I guess I never thought about how people outside the US don’t have the access to ARC’s that I do. I try to live an aware life, so I feel like this makes me a bit of a dunce. That’s why I really loved this article on The Book Corps. I frequently get denied -got one today- but at least I have the option to try.
This discussion piece! It felt like someone was speaking out about something I’ve been secretly feeling for a long time! Is there even such a thing as the ‘Perfect’ diverse book? Isn’t it more likely to believe that the characters experiences would be individualistic? I’m sure there are areas that are similar, but not everything, and I think that we (who love diverse reads) want something that’s everything. It can’t exist. So, that’s why I loved that Mikaela at The Well-Thumbed Reader covered this topic.
Okay, this blog post was just funny. It hit all the Fantasy tropes we all poke fun at, and in a hilarious way. I did think, as I was reading it, about how it reminded me of The Lightning Struck Heart but since that’s supposed to be a comedy (slap-sticky) it was probably what TJ Klune was shooting for. It was very well done by The Orangutan Librarian.
