Blog Friends Forever Blog Hop: Top Ten (okay 12) Blogs + Giveaways

Posted October 8, 2015 by Andi in Blog Tour, Giveaway / 11 Comments


When the fab people at Fiction Fare and Swoony Boys Podcast were looking for people to sign-up for the newest blog hop I jumped right on it. Who wouldn’t want to share love of whatever they cooked up. And so I bring you my stop on the Blog Friends Forever Tour!

“What will you find on this tour? All kinds of blog love where we get the chance to talk about the friendships we’ve made, the blogs we love and the fun amazing people behind the scenes!” ~Fiction Fare

I’m really excited to be a part of this tour as I get to share with you my top ten twelve blogs. If I could have made this list longer I would have but I already broke the rules with 12 and I didn’t want to push it.







Ticket to Anywhere: Gail has been blogging for a really long time and was one of the first people to push me into doing my own blog after the one I was working at closed down. She’s has been a pretty amazing real life friend and blogging friend.







The Book Addict’s Guide: Brittany has been my collaboration partner in crime. We have worked on quite a few things together and I hope we do some more. She also keeps me sane with our mostly daily emails and occasional text messages. Basically she’s awesome!







Jenuine Cupcakes: One of the nicest people I have met through blogging. She is always willing to help me out when I have a question about something and when I can’t find something I’m looking for.  I can’t speak for her cupcakes since I have never had one but I can speak for the lady behind them because she is a sweetheart!







The Irish Banana Review: Hannah taught me how to ask for ARCs from publishers with her ARC Essentials posts. As a newish blogger those posts really clarified the best way to go about interacting with publishers. Plus we have on occasion been known to tweet pictures of baby animals back and forth to each other which clearly means we win at life.







What Sarah Read: Sarah is the newest blogging in my blogging friend crew. I met her on Twitter before she started blogging and it has been do fun to watch her on her blogging journey. She has become a great real life friend too which is awesome!







GReads!: Ginger is my texting partner in crime. We text each other pretty random things for reading to fashion to what the heck is happening texts. She has great taste in contemporary books and one day I will get her to come to Boston so we can meet and she can have a lobster roll.

Love at First Page / Love is not a Triangle: Oh Danielle and Lauren, my triangle hating gals! I love how passionate they are about their hate of something. Both of them are such amazing people and I’m happy I got to know them through blogging (even if Danielle has bad taste in football teams!).







Alexa Loves Books: Alexa will forever be the girl that got me hooked on fantasy books. I had tried and tried to say they weren’t for me and then she came along with her love of the Throne of Glass series and made me read them and fall in love with fantasy books. She was also my secret Santa one year and basically nailed it. Also don’t hurt that we are August birthday twins.







Hello, Chelly: Rachel is my Dawson’s Creek partner in crime. We basically are the same person when it comes to that show. Seriously we answered some questions about it exactly the same (stay tuned for more on that later in the month). She is also one of the nicest people you could ever meet.







Rather Be Reading: I love Estella and Magan so much. They are so friendly and adorable and I love their friendship story. It is kind of a story you would find in the books we are all so fond of. I haven’t met Magan in person yet but I spent a ton of time with Estelle this past BEA and I seriously wish we lived closer than the 4 hours we do. Oh the fun we would have shopping and drinking beers.







Gone with the Words: I don’t know all the girls at Gone with the Words but I do know Jess and Morgan. Jess is equal parts funny and awesome. I got to hang with her at BEA this year and it was some of my favorite time spent on the show floor. And Morgan is my Patriots sister. She gets it like no one else does.

Like I said, I could have gone on and on and on and on. If I left you off this list it isn’t because I don’t love you because I do, I just had to reign it in. If you are looking for other blogs I love check out my Blog Roll.
