BBAW: First Treasure

In case you missed the recent news, this week book bloggers are celebrating Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW)!  The theme is all about treasures, and we all know that the book blogging community contains many of those!!  However, each day, I will be posting about specific treasures as outlined on the BBAW website.  Today's theme is First Treasure and here is the description that was given . . .

We invite you to share with us about a great new book blog you’ve discovered since BBAW last year!  If you are new to BBAW or book blogging, share with us the very first book blog you discovered.  Tell us why this blog rocks your socks off and why you keep going back for more.
There are truly a number of new-to-me blogs from this last year and to narrow it down is sooooo hard!!  However, since I do not have all night to write and I must limit it somehow, I will highlight just a few of my favorites that have me coming back over and over again!

Carol's Notebook
I discovered Carol through my Fairy Tale Fridays feature and immediately fell for her site!  I love not only her dedication to the feature, but I am always anxious to see the photos she posts every Wordless Wednesday!  She has an amazing talent beyond the books and I love that she shares her family game time!

It's All About Books
Suey keeps me coming back because she reliably recommends books that I tend to enjoy myself!  I love her genuine writing and love her personality that shines through in all her posts!

Book Journey
Sheila is another book blogging star, but her site is unique because of her Morning Meanderings feature.  I love that she gives us glimpses into herself beyond the books and she becomes human, despite the many miles between us!

There's A Book
I met Danielle briefly during Share A Story, Shape A Future, but got to know her a bit more while working together for Armchair BEA this last spring.  She immediately made it to the top of my favorites for kidlit blogs, but she is so much more than that!  She is so hard-working, speaking for literacy across all ages, and is simply amazing!

There are truly so many more amazing sites and I cannot wait to see what this next year will bring!  Thank you to all book bloggers out there!!  You are all truly a treasure!!
