Credit Where Credit’s Due

Obviously as a good blogger one must connect with and follow other blogs. To be honest i do find this challenging. As an introvert, i am quite happy to be by myself, drawing my energy from being alone. However even if i was happy having no one follow me, really the point of a blog is to connect, share etc. so as my personality also dictates, if i’m going to do something at all, by jingo i’m going to do it well! (And to be honest, much as it horrifies the introvert in me, i really am enjoying the connections that i have made so far)

Anyway, this post is meant to be about the 28 books that i have read about from a few of the blogs that i follow. From reading their perspective/reviews, i was interested in reading the different books, so i downloaded the preview for each book (if there was one) and i have to say that i am looking forward EVEN MORE to reading them!

They are:

~ Summers In Supino: Becoming Italian by Maria Coletta McLean

~ Lincoln’s Grave Robbers by Steve Sheinkin

~ Last Chance for Justice by Kathi Macias

~ Untangling the Knot by Deanne Wilsted

~ Sihpromatum – I Grew my Boobs in China by Savannah Grace

~ The Apple Orchard by Susan Wiggs

~ Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

There was also a book that a blogger mentioned that they want to read and it sounded so intriguing i want to read it now too!

~ London Under by Peter Ackroyd

Anyway i have placed all of these books on my various wishlists and so i have quite a supply of gift ideas for my family πŸ˜‰ I will be sure to review each book and it will be interesting if i share the same views of the blogger who posted about them!

Also in case you didn’t know (you would if you followed my other blog www.thechefandthewaitress.wordpress.com – yes a shameless self promotion!), Kel and i will be traveling to Europe and the UK via China for the next six weeks. Yep, that’s right. So i probably won’t be posting anything while we’re away due to limited WI-FI access plus I’m hoping that i will be too busy having too much fun!

  1. Thanks for linking back to me on books – and, for this fabulous list of books to add to my already groaning pile of TBR’s.

    I’m actually reading, via audio, The Perfume Collector, right now, which is really pulling me in.

    • You’re welcome on both counts πŸ™‚ And I completely understand. I almost get annoyed when someone recommends me a book. I have too much to read already! I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on The Perfume Collector – I’m looking forward to reading it!

  2. Thank you for including me on this. I also truly find it difficult as I am actually quite introverted in real life and really don’t have many friends. I’m still trying to come out of my shell a lot as a blogger and a book lover and share some of the great books I found along the way with fellow bloggers and book lovers. What are you doing to come out of your shell and how are you keeping in touch with the bloggers you communicate with? I always enjoy hearing the various responses to these questions from fellow introverts such as myself! Anyways great blog post and it clued me into some new books I will definitely be adding to my tbr shelf!

    • Hi! Sorry for the extremely delayed reply…we have been overseas for almost two months and i was off WordPress until now.

      I guess the way i am “coming out of my shell” is to actually try and comment on the posts that i read. I subscribe to a lot of blogs and i try to read almost every single post that is written. However you wouldn’t know it because i barely ever comment. So i am challenging myself to comment more. The bloggers i have connected with, i befriend on Facebook so I’m a lot involved more in their day to day lives. I’ve Skyped one blogger friend and we send each other messages regularly and another blogger friend i have met up with in real life. Meeting new people makes me SO nervous so that’s been a good challenge!

      I am interested to hear how you’ve challenged yourself the past two months since you read my post and wrote this comment!
