This week I was super inspired to share about book clubs, food in books, mental health and a new meme! You’re sure to be inspired too…
This Week’s Appreciation is a weekly meme I host on Saturday morning to share blogger news and love. For each post I’ve pulled three (or more) things from the blog posts that I read over the previous week. It’s a fun way to showcase blogs I follow and share their posts!
Building Better Book Clubs
From Jackie @ Death by Tsundoku who is a really well read blogger who reviews all sorts of books and has thoughtful things to say about them that will spark many a conversation… She really inspired me this week with her in depth Book Club post. Seriously if you are thinking about forming a book club or joining one you NEED to read this post… Here is a small sample to give you a push to check it out:
“What do you hope to get out of this book club? This is important. The cornerstone of your book club and the direction you take things from here on out rests on the answer to this question. … Consider your goals. Write them all down. Yes. Every. Single. One.”
Any Foodies Dream
From Michelle @ Book Adventures where she shares all sorts of bookish fun (she’s coming on her 1 year book-iversary soon)!! I recently came upon a yummy post by her sharing all of her favorite bookish treats… A book tag challenged me to find a hunger inspiring book and IT. WAS. HARD. But here she lists FIVE!! I was blown away (yes I am easily impressed by greatness…) BEWARE reading the post as you will walk away from your computer hungry… (Okay I’ll give you a quick taste: “…Butterbeer, Acid Pops, Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans, Pumpkin Pasties and Chocolate Frogs…” Can you guess the book?)
Mental Health Recommendations
From Chrissi @ Chrissi Reads where she shares all sorts of bookish fun including Fairy Tale Friday… That isn’t what I want to share with you today… She is a long time participant of Top 10 Tuesday and she shared a dynamite list of mental health recommendations. THIS IS A FAVORITE genre of mine and I didn’t recognize A LOT of them… If you LOVED The Silver Linings Playbook then you’re sure to find others you’ll love as well!
New ARC Meme
From Evelina @ Avalinahs Books where she shares some really great reviews from all sorts of genres… She announced a new monthly meme she’s started, State of the ARC! (I love memes!) And I have tons of ARCS! She provides a linky too if you want to link up and share the state of your ARC pile… Check out the details on her first post…!
That’s it for week #19’s edition of This Week’s Appreciation… Do you have a book club? Is it online or in RL? Why do you participate? Do you get hungry reading about food in books? What is your favorite food from a book? Do you enjoy mental health centered stories? Which is your favorite? Do you participate in memes? Does an ARC one sound fun? Love to hear your thoughts!
Please check out these blogs, they are wonderful! XOXO
