#BBAW – Summary

Book Blogger Appreciation Week was hosted by The Estella Society. It’s a great event bringing together wonderful book bloggers.

I decided to summarize my first event.

I’m not even sure I can say I participated, I used 2 out of 5 prompts, but let’s say that counts. One thing I learned during this event is that I’m unable to completely participate in an event, I really liked the idea of BBAW and still could not use all the prompts. hat I like about events like this is the freedom to select and follow what inspires me and discovering new amazing bloggers.

I discovered new great book blogs to follow, I won’t put a list here, but you will see me on your blogs 🙂

On another note: Thank you Waterstones!

As I told Deepika if I fall off wagon with my book ban it’s going to be with a bang…
I’m going to Naples in a month and I decided this is an awesome excuse to buy Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Series (the whole series) and spend the next month ‘ferranting’ in preparation to my trip. Well… Waterstones at the airport (I was flying home this weekend) had a different idea. They only had the third book in the series keeping me on the wagon. I guess I should thank them 😉

I finished ‘Americanah’ and enjoyed it  lot, so review will be coming soon. Now I’m working my way through ‘We Have Always Lived in the Castle’ and it’s a completely different animal, no less enjoyable, though.

    I loved this post, Jo. I must admit that we belong to the same flock. I cannot follow the rhythm when I participated in my first readalong, and I decided that despite participating in the event, I will still read and write the way I want.

    I am so so excited about your trip to Naples. I look forward to seeing some blogs and pictures after the trip. Also, go full throttle on that book-shopping. 😀

    I am glad you enjoyed ‘Americanah’. I eagerly look forward to reading your review. I read ‘We Have Always Live in the Castle’ for Halloween. It was one of the best books I read last year. Supremely atmospheric, and gripping. If you like atmospheric novels, then I think you might like Sara Baume’s ‘Spill Simmer Falter Wither’. That was great too.

    BBAW was great right? I agree with you. Because of the event I unearthed quite a few gems. 🙂 But, I am glad I found you even before the event. 😉

    PS: I think, I write my longest comment only on your blog. 😀
