Blogger Appreciation: Carina’s Books + #Giveaway

Aside from participating in BBAW in years’ past I’m not sure I’ve ever done a Blogger Appreciation type of post here at Fiktshun. I used to do these kinds of posts on occasion on one of my various external blogs. But I don’t believe I’ve ever done one here.

It’s not that I don’t appreciate all the hard-working bloggers out there. I just used to be so wrapped up in my own blog stuffs and trying to keep up with the reading and reviewing part of blogging that I never had a second to appreciate everything and everyone.

And even though I don’t blog as regularly as I used to, I find I have even less free time. But I just had to take a moment to share my appreciation for Carina of Carina’s Books.

I may not be the most chatty person on social media or here on the blog, but I do read and love all my comments. And even though I haven’t been posting nearly as often as I used to, Carina has always stopped by to leave comments on my posts.

And I am just so thankful for her visits and comments.

Because I’m sure she’s just as busy as (or even busier than) I am. Yet she takes the time to read what I’ve posted and share her thoughts and kind words.

Just knowing that someone is reading what I’m writing makes it all worth it – she makes it worth it.

So for that I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to her here on the blog, to offer her a couple of books of her choice from The Book Depository (if she’d like them), and to offer up a giveaway with some follow options for her.

And for those who haven’t yet “met” Carina, here’s some information about her and places to find her online…

About Carina

My name is Carina; I’m a twenty three year old girl from Norway. I love reading more than anything. I have the most gorgeous cat. And I love watching amazing movies. I have so many favorites. I collect tons of things, like Pop figures. And Disney things. I have a whole ceiling wall full of swag, which I also collect. I mostly read only Young Adult and Middle Grade books, but I would read Adult if it is by an author that I already love. I don’t read self-published books. I’m obsessed with pretty covers. And good writing. I can’t stand love triangles. I also have a lot of health issues, which is for life, which sucks. But I’m still doing good. I love all my collections.

I love blogging so much. As I’ve gotten to know so many amazing people and authors because of it. It is the best. And I have gotten to know about so many amazing books too. I will be blogging for a long time still. Don’t feel like sharing much more about myself, but if there is anything you want to know just leave a comment, email or ask me on twitter 🙂 Thank you all for following me. <3 You guys are always the best. You should know that this is my blog, my life. I write honest reviews about books that I read. I will never change that. If I love a book, I will write why I did. If I hate a book, I will most definitely write the reasons for why.

  2. I want to appreciate Cait from Paper Fury. Her blog never fails to make me laugh and feel better about life.

    I have so many bloggers that I appreciate because of how much time they take to review and post about the latest books and other book-related issues. I’m sharing my love for Jessica at http://jessica-agreatread.blogspot.com. She never holds back what she thinks, always shares her excitement about upcoming books, and always thinks about why she liked/disliked a book to give her readers a better understanding of the book.

  4. John Smith says:

    I have visited Paper Fury, also, and she does seem to put an impressive amount of work into her visuals!

  5. OMG! I have so many bloggers that I follow and appreciate! I can’t pick just one… but, since you’ve asked, I will go along with Daniel’s Hammelef’s choice and recognize Jessica at Great Reads.

  6. THIS IS THE SWEETEST! I want to do these types of posts but I’m always afraid I’m going to forget someone. I want to take the time and comment space to appreciate Carina as well! She is one of the nicest bloggers. I post 54854875 posts on my blog and she always visits – even when I can’t reciprocate to the extent that she does. She is so great and so nice! I’m honored to consider her a friend. =)

    Not entering the giveaway (I have both books!) but thank you for hosting, Rachel!

    Have a lovely weekend. <3

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!
