February 23, 2013 Whitney Event 8 Comments

It’s the Book Blogger Love-a-Thon‘s first mini-challenge is a best of post Here’s how it will work: There are four categories – best reviewsbest book discussion postsbest blog design/layout and best random category (which you get to make up!).  My random category is best new to me blogs.  Anyway, this was tough and while I love all the blogs I read here are a choice few.

best reviews
A Literary Odyssey  — Allie makes me want to read the classics even more and has beautiful structure to her reviews.
Dust Jacket –Vaishnavi has a way with words that are beyond compare and has  friendly/lively posts
Tell Me a Story — Cat is to the point with her views, I think getting to the nitty gritty with no muss no fuss.  I love that about her style.

best blog design/layout
As the Crowe Flies (and Reads!) –This blog is so soothing, the color of her background is relaxing and easy to navigate
Debz Bookshelf — Debz just changed her blog layout and it is pretty in pink and also easy to navagate
Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog — I love Felicia’s headers, her layout is very smooth and she is also my read-a-thoner in crime.

best book discussion posts
Reading Rambo — She’s a bad ass and doesn’t hold back with her awesome posts
The Perpetual Pageturner — Jamie has a great blog to begin with and her discussion posts are always thought provoking and/or intriguing.
Musings of a Bookshop Girl — Ellie is witty and love the posts she writes about her used book store

best new to me blogs
Classics and Beyond — I like finding blogs with passion for the classics.  Emily has a great blogs whose posts write as if she were talking to you.
Fanda Classiclit — I discovered Fanda’s blog late last year after epically failing at her Gone with the Wind read-along.  She has a focus on the classics and has hosted other events such as Celebrating Dickens to commemorate them.  In short, I love reading her thoughts on the genre.  
Reading Against the Clock — Caro’s blog focuses on the classics.  She has started a project to read all the Bronte Sister’s novels and simply adore reading her posts on it.
The Daily Prophecy  — I’ve recently gotten into reading fairy tales or fairy tales retold and Mel’s blog is a great new spot for that genre
