You'll find several different things about our blog. We try to post at least one thing daily that is booky and not all reviews need be from the current year or focus on YA. Here's a breakdown
Shout Out to Indies
We here at The Paperback Princesses often receive emails from Indie authors requesting reviews and are blessed with free book copies. Often we are unable to get to so many titles before our mass market published books take over our TBR shelves. That doesn't mean there aren't plenty of great reads though! We want to give back to those Indie authors and are declaring EVERY SECOND SUNDAY our SHOUT OUT TO INDIES MEME. For those of fellow bloggers, please feel free to add our meme to your regular schedule. We only ask that you quote and link back to us as a courtesy. For all of you Indie authors, we invite you to contact us at the contact link to your top left. We will select 1 - 3 titles (each time we post) that sound interesting.
Musing by Knitwits
Not all of our reviews need be YA based. Occassionally we pick up other books to read too (when we're not busy doing other things). Musing by Knitwits will highlight craft and food books that catch our interest. We may even do samples. You never know what we'll throw into a giveaway!
In Case You Missed It
Curlypow is awesome when it comes to Reader's Advisory. She has a wealth of knowledge from all of the books she has read. Not all great books have been published in the current year though. In Case You Missed It highlights some of our favorite books that may be a bit older but are totally worth a second look.
What's old is new again. You see it when you look at fashion, trends, even toys. Why not books? Before books, tales were told orally and Fairytales were one of the first forms of storytelling. Modified with each retelling, you may find one of your favorite fairytales is now modernized and has a special twist.
Let's Hear it for the Boys
Most of our followers are female but that doesn't meant that all of our books should be for women! Let's Hear it for the Boys is a monthly feature we have to introduce books that might be of interest to the male species. However, that doesn't mean that us gals can't enjoy them too!
Here's where we share what we've heard on the web, via Twitter, author blogs, review blogs and Facebook over the past week. You can expect to hear about great contests on the as well as fun videos and interesting tidbits about your booky interests.
Please feel free to use any of our memes but please do link back to us as the creators. We'd love for you to pay it forward and share these new ideas!
