I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. All of these photos are from last week, so don’t be surprised if they aren’t the most recent ones. I wrote this last Saturday and decided to wait until now to post it.
Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a good weekend so far! I’m going to my grandma’s in a few hours to celebrate Christmas with my family (and do laundry 🙈). But before I do that, I wanted to get this post ready to go.
Comment below if you want me to follow you. Just tell me your current read and what you think about it. And if you think you’ll finish it before the end of the year.
I meant to write this yesterday so it went up at my normal time, but obviously that didn’t go over very well. Fridays are weird for me. But let’s just get into this shoutout Saturday! And don’t forget that I’m doing some on my Instagram! Make sure to follow everyone mentioned!
Today’s shoutout goes out to the amazing and lovely…
Donna from Moms Book Collection
As a fellow momma and book lover, I connected with her immediately. Then we learned our book tastes were very similar and there was so much we had in common that we just because the best of friends. I can’t put into words what Donna means to me and I decided to make her my first shoutout because she’s very active on both her Instagram and her blog.
She’s very good at following her themes and choosing them to begin with. She currently has a rose gold kind of one going on and it’s beautiful.
Before this beautiful theme, she had a very Christmas-y one going that, again, was gorgeous. If I could take pictures half as good as hers, I would feel so accomplished in life.
She’s currently a rep for both BibliophilePrints and JemlinCreations. Make sure to check out both shops and use her codes.
She posts on her blog nearly, if not, every day. Along with posting daily on her Instagram, being a momma to an army of wonderful children, and fighting to be the best person she can be. She deserves all of the love and recognition.
So please, make sure to follow her Instagram and blog. Spam her with likes and comments. Dm her and strike up a conversation. Do all of the things to show her that she’s loved and appreciated because she definitely is.
So that’s it for this one. Again, make sure to follow and spam her. Next week will be a new shoutout and I’m currently planning my January ones so make sure you keep an eye out for those.
Those shoutouts I choose ahead of time, but the Instagram ones will be whoever participates in First Lines Friday. This past one is already over, but make sure you’re following me here for the next one!
Thanks so much for joining me and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow for my December book haul! Not including Christmas books.
Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll talk to you all in the comments! Bye!
Good morning everyone! Today is First Lines Friday! First Lines Friday was started by Wandering Words and I’m really excited to join in!
That being said, I did put a little twist on it. So, I’m doing Shoutout Saturdays on here and on Instagram. FLF will be directly related to my Instagram shoutouts. My blog shoutouts will be focused on one single person or shop. It could be an author, bookstagrammer, book blogger, booktuber. shop, other, or all of the above.
But for my Instagram shoutouts, I’ll only be shouting out other Bookstagrammers. The rules for this include:
If tMust be a public profile
Must be a book related instagram
Must have mostly your own photos (this can be taken yourself or made yourself, but I don’t want reposters or the like. Every once in a while is fine, but I want to shoutout the people who post their own stuff)
Size doesn’t matter here. You can have 3 followers of 3,000.
Must guess the book correctly
Comment on this blog post with your guess and your instagram handle!
Each post “closes” at midnight on Saturday. So you have from 8am until 11:59pm to guess!
If too many people guess correctly, I’ll be limiting the amount to 5 shoutouts. But sometimes I will go over that. Or if I miss a FLF, I’ll go back to the last one and shoutout anyone who I didn’t the week before.
You can be shouted out multiple weeks. Just know if I shouted you out the week before and I put a limit on the shoutouts, I’ll be choosing someone else. That way other people get a chance.
I think that’s it for the rules. So let’s get into the first lines Friday!! I’ll announce what the book was in my Saturday Instagram post so make sure your following me over there! The limits on shoutouts most likely won’t happen. Unless I get like 20 correct guesses. Then I may have to.
On a drowsy Sunday afternoon, a man in a long dark coat hesitated in front of a house on a tree-lined street. He hadn’t parked a car, nor had he come by taxi. No neighbor had seen him strolling along the sidewalk. He simply appeared, as if stepping between one shadow and the next.
There you go! Guess the book in the comments for a chance to be shouted out in my Shoutout Saturday Instagram post!
Thanks so much for joining me and good luck. I chose an easy one this week. Sometimes they will be harder so be warned! They won’t be too hard though. I’m not a monster.
See you all tomorrow and until then, let’s chat in the comments! Bye!
