BBAW Day 4: Brag on Yourself

Well, the awards are being handed out and congratulations passed on, I hear there's a best dressed/worst dressed in book blogging edition to come, but the truth is you are all pretty darned spectacular. So for today, why not show it off?

Go hunt through your archives and find your favorite review, or author interview where you asked just the right insightful questions, or another post about something totally unrelated--a post where you think you're at your best and share it here! So today, it's really important to link to your specific post and NOT your general URL. OR. If you can't decide on just one, write up a new post containing the links to your favorites. It's your it whichever way you want!

This should help us all get to know you a little better!

My post for Lost by Cathy Ostlere get's the most views by far. I think it might be because peeps are looking for the tv show, but whatever works.

Serena said...

My review of Body Surfing by Anita Shreve garnered me my first comment from Mariel in which she said she thought the review was excellent and made her want to pick up the book. I was tickled pink!

I had a blast following The Lace Reader map and touring Salem with my family. I enjoyed this because it was family time and blogging time combined; the kids (and even my husband) kept looking at the map to ask "where do we go next?!). It got a good response from readers of my blog, too (and Brunonia Barry told me she loved it, to top it off!)

I posted my review of The Gift of Rain, by Tan Twan Eng. It's a review I'm proud of writing for an excellent, challenging book. At first I thought I hated it, and put the book down four times, before it swept me away, and became really rewarding. It's a hard book. but worth it.

Ruth Schaller said...

This was my first interview on my blog and I must say that I am quite pleased with it. We had fun doing it too!

Smilingsal said...

I'm new at the reviewing end of this, and this was one of my first.

Lisa said...

I posted a bit of commentary about "Will Blogs Save Books" and I was really pleased to see a lot of comments, as well as several commenters posting on their own blogs about the topic.

Lana said...

I'm pretty new at blogging, so I've posted the review of one of my recent reads.

This is a great idea, too!

Kim said...

Amy, I linked here with a review that was awarded best review in tour by CFBA. I was really proud of this accomplishment since I'm still new to blogging.

Thanks for a great week!


wordlily said...

What fun! Great idea.

I posted one of my discussion questions that got the most conversation. As much fun as I have reviewing, it's hearing what other people do with their books and reading that really interests me.

Chris verstraete said...

One of my favorite interviews was featuring a fantastic doll artist who is making a set of dolls replicating famous artists and their works, such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, etc. You have to see these! (The dolls are dollhouse (1/12th) scale, 1"= 1', so adults are mostly 6inches tall).

M. said...

Hi Amy,
thrilled to have sucessfully utilized Mr. Linky for the first time! Great idea for a post, BTW. Off to read other 'best of' posts, now.

Amber said...

What a great idea, Amy! You're just full of them. :)

allisonmariecat said...

Oh, this is fun. I decided to do mine just a bit differently...

Bev(QB) said...

Fun idea! I linked to a post that shows why I seldom use the term "Review". I prefer commentary because even I never know what form I'll be babbling in on any given day.

Chris said...

I found a post remembering some favorite books as I child.

Tim said...

Just found your site via GalleyCat. I've posted a link to an interview that I did with Rivka Galchen. Now I am going to go read all the other posts.

JenniferY (Jennifer's Random Musings) said...

I linked to a character interview I did with characters from Sydney Croft's was so much fun. I sent the co-authors the questions and they answered from the POV of the characters...we went back and forth until it read like a real conversation.

Lisa Damian said...

That was a tough one to choose. I went with my interview with NYT bestselling urban fantasy author Kim Harrison.

These were fun to sort through. Thanks!

avisannschild said...

Great idea, Amy, I look forward to reading through everyone's favourite posts! My blog is so new I didn't have that many to choose from, so I decided to go with my review of one of my favourite books so far this year.

Shannon said...

When the Large Hadron Collider launched, I enjoyed musing on books I had read related to this historic event and finding new books to read along the same themes. This was a really fun post to write and resulted in what I think is a fun and unique reading list. - Shannon (Books Worth Reading)

James Bow said...

Links to a whole bunch of reviews can be found here.

Dina said...

I have not bragged about myself on my blog, not used to doing that, lol, but I listed my blog in case someone would like to visit. :)
