TGIF & Follow Friday!

TGIF is a weekly bookish meme hosted by GReads

Social Networking: Do you use Twitter or Facebook to promote your blog?  How has it benefited your book blogging experience? If not, how do you promote your blog? Share your twitter handle and/or Facebook link!

I use both Twitter and Facebook to promote my blog! I would say that it benefits me as a blogger because not everyone can follow the same way, or wants to follow the same way. I like that my readers can have options.

I have used Twitter for years, mainly for my music, but never really knew how to promote myself. Personally, I find that it’s more worthwhile to promote my book blog using Twitter than my music because other bloggers are always willing to Tweet back and offer advice or just conversation.

I feel like I’m so new to all of this blog-promotion stuff, though, that I’m always learning about ways to do things. I really appreciate bloggers who know what they’re doing! I’m thankful to follow blogs that teach me things as I read.

My Twitter handle is: @ReadingInWinter and you can follow Reading In Winter on Facebook over at my Facebook page.

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read in an effort for book bloggers to make new book blogging friends.

Q: What is the best book you’ve read in the last month? What is the worst book you’ve read in the last month?

Oh my gosh, this is a tough one! I’ve read so many good books in the last month! Here are some of my absolute favourites:

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, by Morgan Matson
(a road trip! a scrapbook! playlists!)

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1), by Robin LaFevers
(the gowns! the action! the romance!)

Spin, by Catherine McKenzie
(the secrets! the lies! the Bridget Jones-esque-ness of it!)

Wanderlove, by Kirsten Hubbard
(the travel! rowan! ROWAN!!)

Damn You, Autocorrect!, by Jillian Madison

That’s only 5 of them, but there were so much more. It’s been a good month.

As for the worst books, these are the ones that I didn’t totally love:

The Tales of Beedle the Bard, by J.K. Rowling
(not my favourite Harry Potter-ish book, kind of drab)

Swoon (Swoon, #1), by Nina Malkin
(no words — it was that bad)

After the Snow, by S. D. Crockett
(couldn’t get into the writing style, wasn’t a fan)

  1. I don’t use Twitter as much as I probably should – but now that I’ve heard about so many people connecting with favorite authors on there, I might have to get back on it a little more 🙂
