Cover Spotlight #1: February 18th, 2018 – February 24th, 2018


Cover Spotlight Sunday Poster

Hey everyone!  I just discovered this new book meme over at Rabbit Ears Book Blog called “Cover Spotlight” where you get to showcase your favorite covers for the week!  The meme starts on Sunday, but it ends on Saturday, so that means you can post your favorite cover spotlights throughout the week!

Here’s mine:

Cover of the Week

I just love this cover!  The cover just shines and I love the way that Celeana is walking towards the audience with a determined look on her face.  Also, loved this book!

BOOK PHOTO SUNDAYS #34: FEBRUARY 18, 2018


Book Photo Sundays Logo

Hey everyone! I’m participating in this new meme called “Book Photo Sundays” which is hosted by Rabbit Ears Book Blog and the goal of this meme is to post up whatever book photos you had taken such as photos of your book hauls, library hauls, photos from book conventions or photos of you with a book!  You can take the photos from your Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, or any other account where you keep your book photos!

Since I’ve been on a bookstagramming spree lately, I have decided to post up two book photos per week!  Here are my books the Cruel Prince and Freeks!

THE FRIDAY FACE-OFF #7: Retro


friday-face-off-2c1

Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme here at Books by Proxy. Join me every Friday as I pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in our literary universe.

Hey everyone! I’m joining in this new book meme called “The Friday Face-Off” which is hosted by Books by Proxy and this week’s theme is: RETRO!!!

For this week, I have chosen the cover for Allan Guthrie’s book “Kiss Her Goodbye!” So, here are the covers!

Hard Case Crime – 2005 

167044

 

Polygon– 2005

3615234

 

 

Polygon– 2007  

 4675556

 

Criminal – E – 2013  

19374431

And the winner is…

167044

 

I will admit that this was a hard pick for me since all the covers looked so good!  But, I went with the original Hard Case Crime cover because I just loved the image of the woman standing over the man with a baseball bat in her hand, looking so tough and awesome!

BOOK DISCUSSIONS: Instagram (or Bookstagram)…Why do I Love It?


Hello fellow book bloggers!  Today’s discussion question is on “Instagram (or Bookstagram)…Why do I Love It?”

 

So, for those of you who have been following this blog for like…FOREVER…you may have noticed that I did a similar topic like this WAAAAYYYY back in 2015 called “OFF-TOPIC DISCUSSIONS #7: WHY USING INSTAGRAM IS FUN!”

My, how time has flown by, right?

clock-animated-gif-18

So, you’re probably asking yourself “Rabbitearsblog, why in the world are you repeating the SAME topic again?  Especially a topic that you did like over a DECADE ago?”

Well, for one thing, it’s been over a decade since I last did that topic and THINGS CHANGE!  When I was a wee little blogger in the beginner’s level of blogging, I was taking little photos of my book lovelies left and right (and I’m still going strong, baby)!  But, let’s just say that my photos weren’t as…CREATIVE as they are building up to be right now.  I mean, I am talking about photos like this:

img_20150210_134838

 

To photos like this:

tumblr_p3x4m3auhr1srimdko1_1280

(See the difference here)?

I mean, don’t get me wrong, I like my early book photos, but at that time, I didn’t have the props I needed to get…CREATIVE and JIGGY with it and sometimes those photos looked like BLAH…

But, at least I’m trying my DARNEST to make my current book photos look HOT for the presses!

Anyway, this post is not just about me rambling about my book photos and stuff, but about why I love using Instagram!

Well, obviously, I just love to take photos of my little lovelies and show them to the world!  Also, I get to test out my own CREATIVITY with book photography by placing little trinkets like *FLOWERS* all around my lovelies for show and tell!  That’s pretty much the reason why I started the Book Photo Sunday meme on my other blog because I just can’t get enough of awesome book photos!

So, do you have an Instagram account and do you enjoy taking photos of your books? And if you do have an Instagram account, feel free to leave the link to your Instagram account in the comments below!  I am always LURKING around Instagram to find some AWESTACULAR photos from other Instagrammers!

Aaaannnnndddd…

Since I’m talking about all things Instagram here, let me show off my book photos for your viewing pleasure!

THE SUNDAY POST MEME (18)


0abf9b9e-b7ac-4d59-b451-7eb7c64ea1b9_zps47hi5hue

 

Hey everybody! I am participating in a book meme called the Sunday Post which is being hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer! The goal of this meme is to share news you have on various books and things you’ve read or received and also talk about what is coming up for your blog! Book hauls can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books and you can share these finds with other book bloggers!

Hey everyone!  Well, my birthday just passed by and I had a truly wonderful time!  Even though we didn’t eat the steaks like I thought we were, we actually had something just as good…RED LOBSTER!  I got my usual Lobster bake and it was delicious!  Even though the commercials for the Super Bowl weren’t that great this year, I still enjoyed the lovely meal we had and I was quite surprised that the Eagles won this year!  I have decided that starting today, the Recommend Me This! Saturdays book meme will no longer be hosted since that book meme is going nowhere and I have decided to create a new book meme called “Cover Spotlight” where you get to showcase your favorite book covers!  I hope everyone takes part in this book meme!  I also just recently saw the Winter Olympics and I really enjoyed the ice skating and the snowboarding competition!  Did anyone else see the Winter Olympics?

BOOK DISCUSSIONS: TWO BOOK BLOGS…HOW DO YOU JUGGLE BETWEEN THEM?


dcrnedKc9

Hello fellow book bloggers!  Today’s discussion question is on “Two book blogs…How do you juggle between them?”

Two blogs, you ask?  How in the world did you manage to juggle two blogs at the same time?

 

http3a2f2fmashable-com2fwp-content2fuploads2f20132f062fharry-potter1

 

Well, the answer to that question my friends, is…IT ISN’T EASY, BUT IT CAN BE MANAGEABLE!

I actually have two main blogs that I managed, which are this website right here and my main book blog Rabbit Ears Book Blog (and two other blogs that I also managed, but not to the same degree as these two, which means, NOT A LOT).

tenor

 

So, yeah, I must confess that I don’t do a good job at managing *ALL* of my blogs, but in regards to these two babies here, I actually have some tips in managing multiple blogs at the same time.

TIP #1:

Set up a schedule where you can post on both blogs.  Like for me, I love to do book memes and how I split that up is that if I do the “It’s Monday! What are You Reading?” meme, I usually do it on my main book blog “Rabbit Ears Book Blog” and if I do the “WWW Wednesdays” meme, I like to do it on this website (because, you know, the WWW Wednesdays and It’s Monday! What are You Reading? memes are practically the same thing, just on different days).  Also, since I created the Book Photo Sundays meme (NEED SOME MORE LOVE THERE), I tend to use the same post I made on my main book blog Rabbit Ears Book Blog and put it in this website so that way I don’t have to go through the trouble of searching for different photos to post on this site.

TIP #2

You don’t necessarily have to post like over A MILLION things on both blogs.  Decide which blog you want to spend more time with and start posting most of your material there.  However, if you want to keep your other blog open for business (like I’m doing with this one, because I GOT MY REASONS), then you can make posts for your other blog any time.

So, those are my tips in managing multiple blogs at one time!  Do you manage multiple blogs at the same time and if you do, how do you manage it?

Aaaannnnndddd…

STAY TRUE TO THE WAYS OF A BOOK FAN!
