Bookish Links #14
Monday, 29 February 2016
Welcome to February's (slightly late!) edition of Bookish Links, the monthly post where we share some of our favourite blog post, articles, videos and more from around the web. Here's what we've been enjoying lately...
1. 2016 Debuts - we're kicking off this month's roundup with Barnes & Noble's list of fifteen hotly anticipated debut novels set to hit the shelves in 2016. There's lots of amazing-looking books on the list and we've already added most of them to our TBR lists!
2. All About The Money - how much money do you spend on books? And do you keep a record of it? This interesting post has really got us thinking about our bookish spends!
3. Finding The Time - with busy day-to-day lives it can be difficult to make time for hobbies like reading, so we love Megan's top 10 tips on finding the time to read. How do you fit reading into your busy schedule? Let us know in the comments!
4. And Even More Time... - in addition to Megan's tips, we also found this post from Free People sharing great tips for how to read more in 2016!
5. Books On Display - we have total bookshelf envy after seeing beauty blogger Anna's sneak peek at her beautiful colour co-ordinated shelves. How do you organise your books?
6. Feeling Moody? - Shannon's interesting post over on It Starts At Midnight looks at how your mood can affect your enjoyment and rating of a book.
7. Talking Favourites - we always love hearing about which books someone finds special enough to make it onto their favourites list, so we loved Jemma's recent post featuring four amazing titles!
8. More Please! - Jillian's post is all about the things she would like to see more of in YA novels, a topic we also recently discussed here at BB. What would you like to see more of in YA?
9. Love To Blog - we always enjoy seeing bloggers sharing positivity within the community and Wendy's post is a brilliant example of this. What are your favourite things about book blogging?
10. Bookish Commitments - over on The Perpetual Page Turner, Jamie discussed her thought process when deciding whether to continue with a series or not. If you don't absolutely love or hate the first book, how do you decide if you want to quit or finish a series?
11. What Makes A Favourite A Favourite? - Alex from Fiery Reads tackled the intriguing topic of favourites earlier this year, by asking what makes a "favourite" book.
