Book Blogger Apprecation Week: First Treasures

Greetings, lovely readers, and welcome to the first day of Book Blogger Appreciation Week! The theme for this year's BBAW is A Treasure Chest of Infinite Books and Infinite Blogs. The powers that be have issued prompts for throughout the week, and invited bloggers to use Monday to discuss some of the first blogs they discovered.

We invite you to share with us about a great new book blog you’ve discovered since BBAW last year! If you are new to BBAW or book blogging, share with us the very first book blog you discovered. Tell us why this blog rocks your socks off and why you keep going back for more.

I've actually decided to talk about two blogs in this section, because I discovered them around the same time, and these two blogs are Book Rat, run by Misty, and Good Books and Good Wine, run by April. I became friends with April and Misty after meeting them in different groups on GoodReads. When I was looking at their profiles, I saw that they both actually had websites listed under the "Website" section, and since I had no idea what I would find, I decided to take a look and lo and behold, these two lovely ladies had blogs!

So why do I keep going back for more? For starters, April and Misty both have fantastic taste in books. If you don't believe me, check their blogs out. I love Misty's blog because she has her own unique way of running her blog and making the memes she uses really individual and creative. Also, she does a fantastic job of putting together events on her blog. I don't know if you all had the chance to check out Jane In June, but it was filled with well thought out posts, giveaways, and tons of involvement from other awesome bloggers.

April's blog often has me laughing out loud. She tends to write her own, short summaries, instead of just using the ones from GoodReads, and they usually end up being a lot funnier. I also appreciate how honest she is not only in her reviews but on topics such as Book Banning.

Consistently reading these blogs, among others, inspired me to start Consumed by Books. If you're not already following these two fabulous blogs, I highly recommend doing so. You won't regret it!


  1. Jane in June is so fun! I already have a list of books I want to read next June :)

  2. Awww thanks Liz! You are among my favorites too. You are so much fun to talk to on Twitter!!! :-D
