Book Blogger Appreciation Week: Showing My Appreciation



Today is the start of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, and the daily theme for today is Appreciation. We're asked to share the book blogs we read on a regular basis and why we read them. But I have to admit that I am rather sporadic in my blog reading and commenting. Every year I set a goal to get better at it, and every year I seem to fall short.

So today I wanted to show my appreciation to those bloggers who seem to have this whole reading and commenting thing down. These are bloggers who consistently comment on my blog. Most of them visit and comment at least once a week. And I don't have a lot of opportunity to show my appreciation to them for that. So that's what I'm doing today. These are all great blogs that I highly recommend you check out!

  1. Aw...thanks for the shout-out, Julie! I'm honored that you included me on your list, though it's ironic that you did so because of consistency! I think I am terrible at keeping up with blogs and like you, I always pledge to do better.

    I think the reason you think I am good at reading and commenting on blogs is because I love your so much! Yours is one of the few blogs I DO try to get to at least once a week.

    I was going to try to do an appreciation post myself tonight - and planned to include yours! - but I am just too tired...

    So, thanks - and right back at ya!

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

Book Review: No Story to Tell by KJ Steele

Victoria has been put down since the day she was born. First by her parents who were disappointed that she survived while her twin brother died. Then by her verbally abusive husband and his low-life friends. But soon an intriguing artist named Elliott arrives in town and starts encouraging Victoria to follow her dream of opening her own dance studio. She also begins to receive phone calls from a mysterious someone who gets her to open up about her past and face her true feelings.

In No Story to Tell, KJ Steele has captured the small-town atmosphere and brought these characters to life. From the victimized Victoria, to her drunk and obnoxious husband Bobby and his drunk and obnoxious friends, to all the side characters who you'd expect to encounter in a town like this ~ all are so realistic in both their actions and their voices. She has written a compelling story of an abused woman who thinks she is trapped in this loveless, miserable existence. But then she finds a spark of hope…

Have you ever felt like someone was watching you? You will after reading Clare Mackintosh's latest release I See You. Told from the perspectives of two women, one who appears to be targeted by a criminal and the other who is the police officer working the case, this psychological thriller will have you looking over your own shoulder by the end.

Zoe is a typical working mother who takes the Underground through London to her office every day. Like most commuters, she has a routine that she follows every day, leaving home at the same time, sitting in the same train car, taking the same route to work from the station. It's habit. But she starts to realize this may not be a good idea after seeing her own photo in an advertisement in the newspaper. Another woman who appears in the advertisement is murdered and Zoe starts to ge…
