Book Blogger Appreciation Week Day 1: Me

Untitled design (3)

It’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week (#BBAW), a week of appreciating bloggers of books hosted byEstella Society. Five days of appreciation, interviews and discussions.


Day 1: Introduce yourself by telling us about five books that represent you as a person or your interests/lifestyle.


Not just because my name is in the title, but because it is the one book from my childhood that I have read over and over again, including into my adult hood.


I picked this book because It’s awesome, but also because I’m a military brat, and I can understand the effects of war, and the toll it takes on families. The story just resonated with me, and I feel like I can relate to the story.

I chose this book because it is about friendship, and the types of friends we each have in our lives.


Hannah Both Ways reminds me of the fact that hurtful things can be said online just as much as they can be said in person. It reminds me that in a social media minded world, hurtful words can now be said for the entire world to see.


I chose this book because it really made me think about how the world sees people. Body image is the one issue that people are still dealing with today, me included. I’m not a skinny person and I struggle daily with the fact that I’m not comfortable in my own skin sometimes, this book showed me what it was like for a world where people can change their looks at a certain age and become “better” by societies terms.

What five books would you chose for yourself?

  1. You’ve got some good ones here. I’ve had Uglies on my list for a long, long time. Need to get to it. And Across Five Aprils – read that with my daughter when she was young. Thanks for the memories!!

  2. I loved the Uglies series. Interesting message and very entertaining. I’m always recommending it to people and I’m surprised at how many people haven’t heard of it. I read Across Five Aprils as an adult and loved it.

    1. Across Five April’s to me is a great way to read about the civil war and how it affected a family. I heard of Uglies from another blogger, otherwise I may never have read it.

  3. I would read basically any book that had my name in the title. So far, though, nearly all of the fictional Jennys I’ve encountered have been prostitutes or dead. Or both. :p (My name does a lot better, though, in songs. Plenty of songs with “Jenny” in them that are good.)

  4. So many great sounding books! I haven’t read any of them, but you have me interested. I’ll Meet You There has me especially curious, and I have heard great things about The Year We Fell Apart. Hannah sounds like an important book.

    Thank you for sharing!
