Friday Spotlight (5)

The Friday Spotlight will focus on a blog that I've run across in my blog roaming that doesn't have a big following yet. I will spotlight the blog and let my readers know about the reasons why I like the blog and what it has to offer. Hopefully, it will garner that blog some new followers and my readers a new place to visit for more book blogging fun.

This weeks spotlight blog is: Dreaming of Books

Dreaming of Books currently has 49 followers.

Jenny is a Canadian blogger and, like the rest of us, a raving book addict! LOL... Most of the reviews you will find on Dreaming of Books are YA (young adult) book reviews. A genre that has grown in leaps and bounds over the past few years. There are many things that I like about this blog.

Dreaming of Books currently has a giveaway going on in which readers can win copies of Marked by PC and Kristen Cast and Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. You must be a follower of the blog. U. S. and Canadian residents only and the deadline is Feb. 4th. Check it out!

The rating system on this blog is similar to mine. Jenny uses a five star rating system. Her review policy, contest policy and a master list of reviews are posted on the right hand sidebar. One of my favorite features on any blog shows what the blogger is currently reading. Both books on Jenny's list this week are historical fiction pieces. Both of which look fantastic.

Dreaming of Books has entered several great challenges this year including, The Young Adult reading challenge, The Debut Author Challenge, 1st In a Series Challenge and the 10 in 10 Teen Chick Lit Challenge. It's always fun to see which challenges other bloggers are into, because it gives me great ideas for ones that I want to enter as well.

On the left hand sidebar you will also find a list of contests from around the blogsphere. It's always great to see a blogger who encourages others to visit other blogs and become a part of the community. For those of you who tweet, she also has a Twitter button, so you can follow her there also.

Dreaming of Books has a lot to offer. Go by, check it out, enter her giveaway and see if there is anything that catches your fancy!!!
