I know I'm late with this meme (and I still have the one from today to write!), but things have been crazy. Last night, I was feeling burned out, so I banished myself from the computer. Then, this morning my husband calls me while I'm on the train to tell me The Girl is sick (stomach bug or something). So I did a day's worth of work in a little over three hours, took an early train home so hubby could get to work, did more work from home, and now I'm trying to pound out these posts so I can cuddle with The Girl on the couch. She's really needy when she's sick, but that's okay. I'm her mom, and I like to be needed. I just feel bad that I'm really behind in reading everyone's BBAW posts, but I'll get to them. (Don't be surprised if you see comments from me days after the end of BBAW. Sorry!)
Anyway...on to the meme. I subscribe to more than 400 blogs, and all except for a handful are book blogs, so I'm always seeing reviews of great-sounding books. I must admit, though, I'm horrible at remembering where I first saw a book, and if I was more organized, I'd probably write things like that down.
But there are a few books I've read this year, thought were great, and managed to remember the bloggers who recommended them:
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry, which I saw on Age 30+...A Lifetime of Books
T4 by Ann Clare LeZotte, which I saw on Maw Books Blog
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, which I saw on Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin'?
One of my favorite things about the book blogging community is that it feels like a bunch of friends insisting that I read a certain book or cautioning me not to waste my time. And that's why I read a mix of blogs, with some delving into the book's structure and other elements and others just stating whether or not it was a good read. Thank you fellow book bloggers for all that you do to enable my addiction to books!
