The assignment for the first day of Book Blogger Appreciation Week is this--"to share with us about a great new book blog you’ve discovered since BBAW last year! .... Tell us why this blog rocks your socks off and why you keep going back for more."
I'm bending the rules, and sharing two blogs that I've added to my list. The first is author Katherine Langrish's blog, Seven Miles of Steel Thistles. I have gotten loads of enjoyment from her long and juicy posts about mythology, fantasy, older books, fairy tales and more, as well as from her books (I've reviewed The Shadow Hunt, and Troll Fell), which I've also had the pleasure of discovering this year!
The second blog I'd like to wave hello to is Chachic's Book Nook, a fun and friendly place I always enjoy visiting. Chachic shares my taste in books, with just enough that's different to make things interesting! And she just let me know that one of my favorite authors has a new book out-- Coronets and Steel by Sherwood Smith!
