Lezlie from Books n\’ Border Collies so kindly nominated me for the Brillante Weblog award yesterday! I was so surprised and pleased. I\’ve been thinking all day who to pass the award on to:
books i done read- This blog is absolutely hilarious! If you\’ve never been there, go now. I guarantee you\’ll be laughing in minutes. It\’s one of the few blogs where I actually read every single post, even if it\’s about a book of a genre I strongly avoid- her blunt, frank, to-the-point reviews are just like what I always think about books, but never have the gall to write.
Book Puddle– On days he\’s not reviewing a book (or film), Cipriano shares quotes from a wide range of bookish material. I always enjoy reading the quote of the day- usually accompanied by a photo or illustration as well. Refreshingly different. He also shares his own poetry, and it\’s quite good!
Chain-Reading– I like this blog because the reviews are short and sweet. Sometimes so short they\’re posted as \”four-word\” reviews. When I\’m tired and have over a hundred entries piled up in google reader, I always read the ones that keep things in a nutshell. Chain-Reading also uses vacillating font sizes, which makes things jump out at me. I like that. Oh, and there used to be some beautiful music there, too.
Maw Books- An awesome blog. I was already enjoying the thoughtful reviews and then she went and set up this staggering database of book blogs. Maw Books has my outspoken admiration for that. When I want to know what someone else thinks of a book I just finished, I head over and check out who\’s on her list. It\’s a great way to find new blogs, as well!
Things Mean a Lot– I always look forward to visiting this blog. Nymeth reviews a lot of fantasy books that really appeal to me- she\’s probably responsible for adding to my TBR pile more than most! And her blog is so pretty. I love the Rackham fairies.
Both Eyes Book Blog– I just recently discovered this blog. So far I\’ve been enjoying every post. They\’re not too wordy, but always very thoughtful. And I have to say, I love the story behind the name of this blog!
Hooser\’s Blook– Lauren and Dana were among the first book bloggers to welcome me and comment when I first began book blogging. They\’ve always got something interesting to say about books I\’ve never heard of (more for the TBR!).
My book blogging friends, you are all so wonderful! I could have named (literally) dozens of other blogs. If you\’ve been nominated here and want to pass the Brilliante along, here\’s the \”rules\”: Put the logo on your blog. Add a link to the person who awarded you. Nominate at least seven other blogs. Add links to those blogs on your blog. Leave a message for your nominees on their blog.
Thanks again to Lezlie!
