Hello, hello, hello! And welcome to Friday Favorites!
Friday Favorites was born out of a love for lists, books, and positive thinking! I was inspired to host this weekly meme from That Artsy Reader Girl, who hosts Top Ten Tuesday (which is an awesome weekly blog meme that y’all should check out!). I kept thinking of list topics I wanted to explore with my blog, thus Friday Favorites was ushered into this bookish world.
How to participate: Below is the list of topics, all of which are book or literary related in some way and which will be updated throughout the year (I’ll try to keep at least a month worth of prompts up so you can pre-write your posts). Each Friday, post your list of favorites, per the topic, to your blog (or #bookstagram). I’d love if you linked back to this post, so people could find the topic list if they are interested, but this is all for fun so really, I just want you to enjoy creating your favorites list. You can have one favorite or 13 favorites or however many favorites you feel like on your lists! Also, you can do your most favorite or least favorite for the topics!
I typically will make a link list at the bottom of my Friday Favorites post with all the Friday Favorites posts I can find, but I know I miss some. If you want to drop your post link in the comment I’ll definitely know to add it to my list! Though I should add the caveat that I don’t always post the link list, because let’s face it: life sometimes gets in the way of blogging. HOW DARE! I do try my hardest though!
