The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme with a prompt featuring a book related question. The hop begins on a Friday and ends on a Thursday and should hopefully give people the opportunity to learn something new about the blogger.
The Book Blogger Hop can be found on Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer and obviously my answers can be found here!
I had to look this up because I actually didn’t know what was meant by a ‘bookish accessory.’ No lie. I genuinely didn’t know. I cannot highlight this strongly enough; I am not cool enough to understand anyone.
But luckily I have now been educated by the power of Google and I can safely say that if I had to choose a favourite it wouldn’t be anything that actually counts as a bookish accessory but would be these bad boys…
That’s right dear readers. My eyesight is shocking. Not even a little bit shocking, just shocking. I have friends who, when looking through my glasses, exclaim with horror, “Are these your eyes??!!”
So my favourite is the thing that allows me to actually read books. These are my actual glasses by the way (obviously via a picture taken from the internet) and yes they do have funky blue arms.
I would like to take this moment to direct you to a short story called ‘Time Enough at Last’ by Lynn Venable. Go have a look now. Go on. I’ll wait.
Did you find it?
Glasses. Now you know.
As I failed miserably last week at doing blog hops for other blogger’s posts I am coming at you this week with more awesome posts than usual. Check them out!
Briana @ Pages Unbound gave 5 Tips to Drive Traffic to Your Book Blog. Get your pen and notebook handy because these are great tips.
Norrie @ Reading Under the Blankie did an alternative Valentine’s Day post in which she recommended 13 Books for the Non Romantically Inclined.
Aurora @ Aurora Librialis always brings the gold and she has done again with her Readalike Recs feature which is the Favourite Fantasy Author Edition.
Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads deserves all the love for her Ultimate YA Romance Reading Recommendation List. People, there are a ton of books (over 80) that have been recommended so get over there!
Aubrey @ If Mermaids Wore Suspenders wrote about Red Robin Hood: A Collection of Alternative Fairy Tales and because I love me some fairy tales this goes on the list.
Clo @ Book Dragons gave us the Book Blogging 101 on Blog Tours. There’s so much useful advice here including what are book tours and how a blogger can go about getting on one.
Margaret @ Weird Zeal reached a blogversary and wrote a post called 6 Things I’ve Learned in a Year of Blogging of which I agree on every statement she made. For my blogversary I may well just link back to her post.
Kristin @ Kristin Kraves Books wrote about her Favourite Bookish Podcasts of which there are many that look amazing.
Sophie @ Beware of the Reader asked her readers ‘Do You Think Publishing Houses Have it Right Choosing Only ‘Big’ Blogs?’ and set about answering it with a well thought out response. Pop in and join the discussion!
Jenniely @ Jenniely shared an eye opening Newbie Blogger Spotlight on The Day Audiobooks Forever Changed My Life where her guest blogger Ashley spoke about how audio books have given her the ability to continue to enjoy books after experiencing visual impairment.
Louise @ Foxes and Fairy Tales has announced #Hamilthon a readathon inspired by Hamilton the musical. I love that musical so much that I am genuinely tempted to give this a go. I’ve been listening to the album to try and get in the mood to pick one of the routes!
What’s your favourite bookish accessory? Do you even have one? Are you like me and will force an answer to fit the question? Is this why I did so badly on my school exams?
Until next week where I answer the question of whether I have made the switch from print to e-books.
