BBAW || Appreciation

I'm a little late in posting this, but I thought I'd share anyway, as it's Book Blogger Appreciation Week! Today's topic: Appreciation! There are no awards this year, but it can still be hard to navigate the huge universe of book blogging. Share with your readers some of the blogs you enjoy reading daily and why.

I love reading book blogs! It's always a joy to me to be able to connect with other people who share my passion for reading and books, and it's been such a wonderful experience getting to know and interact with these amazing people all over the world. If you look to your right, you'll see my blogroll - a list of the blogs that I read on a very regular basis.

But today, I'm going to highlight a few of my favorite blogging friends, simply because I can't imagine not talking about books and life and everything in between with these girls. It's been fun getting to know them (and so far, getting to meet Estelle, Magan, Rachel & Katelyn) and I look forward to many more years of friendship to come!

Estelle & Magan of Rather Be Reading
There's an incredible variety of reviews on their blog, and I think they genuinely manage to express their thoughts and feelings on any book. I love the authenticity and honesty that comes across in their posts. Plus, they're an adorable pair of best friends!

Rachel of Hello, Chelly
I love Rachel's reviews because they're brief but still contain enough reason for me to want to read or set aside a book. Her opinions on books tend to match mine, so I do enjoy seeing what she'd recommend or not recommend. Plus, she's Filipino too!

I love Lena's enthusiasm and happy personality. Plus, I like seeing what she has to say since just about every single book that she's asked me to read has been fantastic so far! We share a love for books and cupcakes and pretty dresses too.

Katelyn is a music and book aficionado, and I love when she gets excited over things. Hanging out with her at BEA this year was an incredible experience, and I love that she is exactly the way she is on her blog. I always get great musical recommendations from her blog!

Elena of Novel Sounds
She has one of the most creative book blogs I've ever seen, combining her love of music with her love of books. I always enjoy reading her thoughts on books, because we share similar tastes. Plus, she's just as big a Harry Potter fan as I am!
