TGIF!

TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.

This week’s question: Social Networking: Do you use Twitter or Facebook to promote your blog?  How has it benefited your book blogging experience? If not, how do you promote your blog? Share your twitter handle and/or Facebook link!

Do I?!

Twitter is my best friend. It should be everyone’s best friend! It has been the most effective tool in promoting my blog, for sure! Not only has it helped promote my blog, but I’ve connected with SO many other book lovers and bloggers. It really has been irreplaceable.

I also have a fan page for my blog on Facebook, which I probably don’t utilize its full potential, but it’s good to have. It’s attached to Networked Blogs, which is another app I use. It helps getting the word out on new posts.

I also use Goodreads, but not to send out event invites, just to post reviews that are on the blog. (I link the review and post the text on there.)

This week’s question: What is the best book you’ve read in the last month? What is the worst book you’ve read in the last month?

The best – HANDS DOWN!

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

THAT ENDING!!! GAH!! (Read my review HERE!)

I haven’t read a bad book this month, but if I had to pick the one I could live without from this month, it would be:

It just wasn’t anything new. :/

    It seems like a good series overall, though, right? I’ve been wondering about whether to read it.

    I HAVE to read Delirium so I can read Pandemonium. I’m glad you loved it! Hope you have a good Friday :) 

    Here’s my FF!

    I haven’t gotten to Pandemonium yet – hopefully over the next few months! And I don’t use Twitter as much as I once did – wish I had the time to really make use of it.

  4. Jessica@a GREAT read

    OKay, apparently I need to use Twitter! Jess, what kinds of things does a book blogger tweet? I am starting to think I need a twitter account, but I kinda need to know what I need to be tweeting in regards to my blog!

     Here’s my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

      Twitter is all about conversation. Conversation about books, music, tv shows, current events, so it’s best to think of it as a way to connect with other people on things that interest you. For book bloggers, it’s a great way to talk with others about books you’re reading, books you’re excited about, and your blog. As far as tweets about my blog, I tweet about my posts along with the link to them, You start following people, interact with them. You could probably start with looking up your regular blog followers and commenters and grow from there. :) Hope that helps!

    I forgot to include Goodreads on my Social Networking post. It’s such a great tool!

    Yay! for Pandemonium. That was my pick too. I haven’t gotten around to reading Hana, but I did purchase it. It’s really short so I’ll probably be reading it soon.

    I’m following. Happy Friday!JJ iReadsVisit my Friday Hop

    Yay! I loved Pandemonium too! The ending! :O Too bad you didn’t like Hana… Hopefully I’ll still check it out though. New follower! By the way, I really like your blog layout! Feel free to check out my F&F here.

    Just dropping by. I use FB and Twitter, I prefer using the former but it’s a new page for the blog so yet to see how well it’ll work. Fingers x-d. Have a great weekend.

    I like using Twitter … I’m sure I’m not using it to its full potential, but I like that I’m always learning. :) As for Facebook, I’m kind of the same as you … I’m sure I could be using it better! 

    I still have to read DELIRIUM, let alone Pandemonium, but I won Pandemonium and it’s on its way, so I’ll have to read them soon. :) 

    Happy FF and TGIF! :)

    Pandemonium is definitely one of the best ones of the year so far, so freaking amazing!!! I’m kind of glad I didn’t read Hana after all, I thought about it but there’s all these other shiny books taking all my attention lately. =)

  12. Joli Huynh

    Delirium and Pandemonium are the best books I read this year. I finally read Delirium after having it sit on my shelf for almost a year. After I finished it, I was so mad that I waited to read. It was incredible. So moving and thought provoking. Lauren Oliver has written something really special. The only good part about not reading it until this year is that I didn’t have that long to wait to read Pandemonium. Of course I devoured Pandemonium as soon as I got it. And I agree, the ending was a zinger, but definitely called for. Loved it!!

    I haven’t been able to re-configure my NetworkedBlogs account for some reason… it’s really frustrating! But I agree, twitter is definitely a bloggers best friend!
