Due to the recent scandal in the book blogging community, I find myself in need of a new way to showcase new titles. I like giving them a little special attention as sometimes it can be awhile before I'm able to review a book. Sad to say, but some get put on the shelf and gather a little dust before I'm able to give them the love they deserve. There is no intent to brag, but rather an attempt to share new titles and discover them in return. Luckily, I didn't receive or buy anything this week, so I have a little breathing room...
Here are some of the options I've discovered so far:
Grace at Books of Love has a new meme called Goodie Bag Saturdays. As Grace explains: can show off other things than books, DVDS, movies, swag, so on. If you didn't get books you can talk about other books that are on your shelves that others might find interesting or books you will be showcasing...
The ladies at The Book Vixen have started a new meme called My Bookish Wants & Gots. I like that it's a combination of what you received and the things on your wishlist. And ya' gotta love the title!
Anna's Book Blog has a new Book Haul meme, where you can link whatever type of mailbox post you like. It's another good option to consider!
Lily at Moirae (the Fates) Book Reviews started a weekly meme called Ma semaine dans les livres (My week in books) that will be posted on Fridays. I love the whole Parisian theme!
Then there is the popular Mailbox Monday meme, started by Marcia but unique in that it has a new host every month. Since everyone seems to use their own picture, I used the one from April's host, Cindy's Love of Books. As stated on the website: Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wishlists.
So there are the options I've found so far. Anyone know of any others out there? I enjoy seeing what everyone received each week and have discovered some great new reads this way, so don't want to give it up entirely. I'll still visit and comment on my blogger buddie's IMM posts if they chose to participate, I just want an alternative.
Think this is going to be a tough decision!
