Memes and Tags, This Week's Appreciation

#33… GAH! Blogger, Blogger, Blogger Advice + Changes + International Woes

I love how there are as many opinions about books as there are readers of those books! So book bloggers are some of my favorite people… these are their posts…

This Weeks Appreciation lineThis 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!

Things That Changed Since I Started Blogging

From Naty @ Naty’s Bookshelf and Noriko @ Diary of a Bookfiend. Naty inspired Noriko and I was inspired by both of their answers! As 2017 closes its great to look back at our year and see how we’ve changed… I know I’m looking to streamline things so I can fit even more in my life, lol, while blogging tends to complicate it (in a good way for the most part!) Check out what these two had to share…

Two Year Blogiversary: Bloggers’ Advice

From Beth @ Reading Every Night. This is an INCREDIBLE milestone and some of the BEST advice from all sorts of great bloggers (including me!! YAY!! Thanks BETH!!) If you missed this post by chance then this is the post you MUST READ… you won’t regret being reminded of what it takes to stick with blogging for the long run…

On Netgalley, GR & International Bloggers

From Marty @ The Cursed Books. I obvious don’t pay well enough attention because I didn’t see a lot about this issue though it has started to reach the blogs and this post by Marty (whom I just found!) really lays out the issues if you too are NOT in the know… It feels like they are setting boundaries for some reason only they know about… still I AGREE no eARCs?! Pretty stingy…

Match-Up Retellings: Classics to YA

From Briana and Krysta @ Pages Unbound Reviews. Retellings are VERY POPULAR and I’m always keeping an eye out… These two lovely bloggers got together some classics that have a doppelganger in the YA genre!! YES!! The Phantom of the Opera, Persuasion and Jane Eyre fans rejoice… and a couple unexpected ones, check them out!

7 Reasons to Read As I Lay Dying by Faulkner

From Holly @ Nut Free Nerd. This is my classics loving blogger… I am always reading her classics loving posts marveling at how passionate she is about this old texts. I too have a favorite classic and this post inspires me about how to share my love… Allow yourself to be convinced, read the post!


Last Sunday I wrote my first feature and I had such fun writing it… I learned that NOT all the books I featured are coming out in Jan 2018 after all but its still a fun look at some new books… Check it out if you missed it (CLICK HERE or the BANNER)!

  1. I think this is a really helpful meme to do, thanks for putting it together! Your post introduced me to some blogs I’d never read before and some interesting perspectives. On what has changed with me since I started blogging, I love seeing my blog grow with me as I get older. I started writing online in eighth grade for my first site “Bookworm Reviews” without any interaction with the blogging community. Now as a junior in high school, I’m getting back into blogging again with my blog clairefy and exploring my newfound interests (like studying for school, clubs I’m in, etc.) along with book reviews whenever I feel like it (plus my web design has improved a lot since the eighth grade, haha!).

    1. That is an incredible journey Claire! I’m actually so envious of teens today who do blogs and crazy cool things I never did at that age (at least not in middle school!) I love your blog Clairefy! It’s quite a pretty thing too. ♥️ I appreciate your love of my meme… I LOVE sharing posts from blogs and spreading the love…

  2. The NetGalley and Goodreads changes are seriously annoying me… But ah well.. I’m trying to deal with it lol! I haven’t been blogging for long but the best advice I’ve ever received is be organised (which I am totally not, but I’m working on it). Great post!

  3. Great post Dani, and thanks so much for featuring my post as well. Hopefully the advice all the blogger gave will help plenty more bloggers out there too! 😀
    I have to admit I haven’t heard too much about the new changes Goodreads and NetGalley are doing for ARCs, I mean I never normally enter Goodreads giveaways so that won’t have too much of an effect on me but given all my ARCs normally come from NetGalley I really need to do some reading up on those changes.
    Also when it comes to classics vs retellings for me it’s retellings all the way. 😀
    Great post, and again thanks so much for featuring my post this week. 🙂 ❤

    1. My pleasure Beth… I look forward to your thoughts on Netgalley’s change in policy. I’m not sure why you would limit eARCs and I would like hearing the POV of international readers. It’s a real shame if you get cut out of ARCs! ♥️ YES! Retellings! 😉

  4. I do love retellings, IF they’re done right. If they’re done wrong, there’s a good chance that I will hate them. Not sure if I can even explain what I mean by “done wrong”. Maybe it’s when the retelling betrays the original too much?? My favourite retelling tend to be fairy tales.

  5. Thanks for all these recommendations, Dani! I LOVE retellings (seriously I may just give my first born child for a good retelling of Red Riding Hood). I love A Long Long Sleep (Rapunzel retelling) and The Lunar Chronicles. A good retelling can fix any bad day 🙂
