What's Up Wednesday - Playing Blog Catch-up

I realize I haven't taken a waltz around the blogosphere lately - or even a crawl - but I hadn't realized how far behind I was until I sat down to write this post today! Holy crow I missed a lot of stuff! Obviously, I can't recap all of it here - that would take pages and pages of writing that I frankly don't have time for - but I settled for sharing great posts that have hit the blogosphere in the last six hours.

As always, there were some truly fantastic book reviews posted by: HarleyBear, BookishThings, DenimJacket, Gripped, HookedInsatiable, ABookishLibraria, Bookworm, BigAls, ReadIt, and BooksYA.

On top of a book review, Colorimetry is doing an awesome giveaway - I highly recommend stopping by and entering (unless, of course, you want me to be the winner lol). Speaking of giveaways, SuperSpud is doing a giveaway of his book.

Wordless Wednesday is just a little weekly meme where you post a meaningful photo rather than write a post. I'm hoping to get around to doing that on my Operation Relax blog. Anyway, check out this cute photo by LibraryGirl .

Speaking of Operation Relax, PhoBlogWriPher shared some really excellent pictures and a story about her current experience in Utah.

I wasn't the only one giving out an update - ReadersCorner talked about her indecision when picking out a book to read, and how far behind she is on her TBR list, while PeaceFromPieces shared a very appropriate post about living as if you are always in the best days of your life.

My fellow book bloggers are always waiting on books, but here's some that shared their wishlists: YABookNerd, Bookish, Yearning, Joie, Cover, Falling, Bookspin, Booktacular, Blksoniner, and Hope.

Staffers shared a little snippet from a guest post he wrote on a different blog, while ActsofKindness talked about donating food to a local animal shelter.

On the topic of writing, WriterBeware posted about how editing clauses work and what you should be aware of as an author trying to get published. Meanwhile, World shared an interesting writing prompt that still has me thinking.

MyWorld shared a cover release, which is always exciting (I like the one with the gold better than the one with the blue). Similar to a cover release, Jeanz had a great author interview as did RedHeaded and WritingWorld. FeedMyNeed actually got interviewed on a different blog!

So what does all of this mean? First of all, it means that I follow wayyyy too many blogs - this isn't even everything that happened in the last 6 hours, and it's already full to the brim of awesome! Second of all, it means that I need to try not to fall behind. Seriously.


  1. Wow that's a lot of good stuff lol. I agree about the gold instead of blue on that cover. The blue doesn't look right. Thanks for linking to my review btw!

  2. What awesome stuff to look at! I will have to check out all those blogs! Thank you so much for mentioning mine!!
