Welcome to the third stop of the 2015 Summer Blogger Promo Tour, hosted by us ladies at The Book Bratz! This is a summer-long tour where we'll be introducing you to different book bloggers and their awesome blogs every Sunday - if you're interested in learning more about the tour, click here!
One day, I daydreamed of owning a little space on the internet where I could talk about something near and dear to my heart: books! Now, I knew reading was a solitary experience, best done in a comfy chair with a warm mug of tea at your side. But I wanted my little space on the internet to be a place for bookworms to look up from their books and talk about the things that excited them.
Reading may be a solitary experience, but the joy we receive from it should be shared.
I messaged some of my college friends (some writers, all readers) and told them about my idea. Whether they chose to contribute once or contribute regularly, I hoped they share their thoughts on books and reading on BiblioSmiles.
That was in February of 2014. Now I’ve had almost thirty contributors on the site, and I’m so happy about that! Between my own book reviews, event recaps, and interviews, I’m glad to be able to give others the chance to have their voice heard. Today, Amber and Jessica have asked me to share some of my favorite BiblioSmiles posts with you. And while it would be easy to say “,” I wanted to shine the spotlight on some of my contributors. This little spot on the internet is a heck of a lot brighter with them around.
Andrew’s essays are always poetic and beautifully-written. and swoon with me; this guy knows how to write about a typewriter!
Nail art is such a big trend right now – and Taylor of Novels and Nail Polish combines her love for nail art with her love for books! Her beautifully-photographed designs and well-written blog entries make Novels and Nail Polish a must-visit in the blogosphere. Read her guest post .
To go along with the fashion and books trend: one of my favorite bloggers (and a fellow SUNY Purchase creative writing grad!), Sara Strauss, visited BiblioSmiles and shared some . Sara has a real knack for putting together outfits inspired by new novels, old classics, and favorite characters. Be sure to give her blog, , a visit!
If you’ve been reading BiblioSmiles for a while, I’m sure you’ve gotten quite used to seeing Gabriele’s name here! Gabriele is constantly coming up with cool ideas and she’s excited to share each and every one with you readers. While you can read all of her posts , I wanted to highlight two series of posts she’s been working on: her series profiles authors and their work. Her posts are dedicated to literature’s most famous creatures.
I want to thank Jessica and Amber for hosting this amazing Summer Blogger Promo Tour and for having me on their blog! I hope you’ll stop by BiblioSmiles and read what we have to say. I would be more than thrilled to hear from some of you who may like to contribute as well!
