Hello and welcome to the first post of my new feature!
Around the Blog is a weekly post that will feature my top five posts I’ve read during that week. It’s my way of appreciating other bloggers’ content and to share the love for the chosen posts and bloggers with my followers in the hope they’ll love them as much as I do.
So, without further ado, here are the five blog posts I’ve enjoyed the most this week.
1. Discussion Time: How Do You Manage Your Expectations for Hyped Books? by Beth@Reading Every Night. This is a great discussion post on hyped books and how to deal with the expectations that come with them. Beth shares her own experience with hyped books and also gives her readers some tips and tricks how to manage the expectations.
2. The Reader’s Guide to Audiobooks & Audible by Sarah@WrittenWordWorlds. I’ve been meaning to get into audiobooks ever since I’ve listened to Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them (narrated by Eddie Redmayne!) so this was the perfect post for me.
3. Young Adult Contemporaries & Their Failure to Represent the High School Experience by A.J.@LacyLiterary. This is a wonderful post on how YA authors could improve their contemporaries by making the high school experience as realistic as possible. I agree with her; I’d like to see more books where teenagers spend a lot of time in school, worry about exams, get frustrated with group projects, try to deal with the pressure of exams, extracurricular activities, hobbies, etc.
4. Is There Pressure to be a Creative Book Blogger by Mikaela@TheWell-ThumbedReader. I’m a big fan of Mikaela’s discussion posts because they’re always very relatable and relevant. This one is no exception. If you’ve been blogging for a while, I’m sure you’ve felt the pressure of writing highly original posts. In her discussion post, Mikaele talks pros and cons of creativity AND uncreativity.
5. My Book Blogger Bucket List by Marie@Drizzle&HurricaneBooks. Speaking of being original, check out this post my Marie! She talks about all her goals and dreams as a book blogger (YES to being quoted in a book and going to all the bookish events!) which makes for an interesting and fun read. I haven’t seen a post like hers, so make sure to read it.
That’s it for this week. I hope you’ll check out these posts and show them some love ❤
Until next week!
