TOP 10 TUESDAY: New to the Queue

“Ten Books I’ve Added To My To-Be-Read List Lately (inspired by my New to the Queue posts)” From The Broke and the Bookish.

I’m always adding books to my TBR (Goodreads lists it as 470 and that’s not including series and sequels – eep) and these Top Ten Tuesdays are often responsible for my adding more. For this week, I’m listing some additions to my TBR that are due to my seeing them on other blogs recent TTT posts. Thanks if one of your suggestions is here!

Worlds Collide Tour

Giveaway & Bib·li·o·phile Fridays Info

I’m so excited to let you know about the new meme I’m co-hosting.

Bib·li·o·phile Fridays is a brand new weekly meme hosted by Whoo Gives A Hoot and Foxes and Fairy Tales.

Please check out our Goodreads group here.

Every month we’ll post a list of weekly themes. Following the weekly theme, you will create a blog post listing your top FIVE favorite books (ones you’ve read or haven’t read) that meet the criteria. Then, you will pick ONE (or ALL of them, it’s really up to you) to feature.

For your featured book you will add some details about the books such as covers, synopsis and buying links. Then, the really fun bit — delve a little deeper into the book, the author, the fandom — whichever tickles your fancy. This could be posting an author bio, a profile of your favourite character, a fanmix playlist, a fancast or showing off your favourite fanart. This bit is totally up to you, just express your love of books however feels right to you.

Once you’ve gotten your post up on your blog, make sure to share your link in the Bib·li·o·phile Fridays Goodreads discussion thread under LINKS. Also if you tweet your post on Twitter with the #BFridayPosts & tag both @whoogiveahoot & @foxesfairytale, we’ll retweet them for you!

You can see my first post for Daylight Savings Time here.

To promote the start of Bib·li·o·phile Fridays, I’m offering a giveaway for $20USD to spend at bookdepository.com.
