2013 Comment Challenge

The Comment Challenge is back! Lee Wind at I'm Here, I'm Queer, What Do I Read?  and Pam at Mother Reader have brought back the comment challenge for 2013!

The idea is to comment five times on blogs each day for 21 days to create a habit of commenting and creating a community in the blogging world. I'm hoping I can start reading my blog feed again this year-I've really lacked in that in 2012 due to all my committee reading. I love leaving comments for bloggers and I love participating in the comment challenge, so we'll see if I can keep up the challenge this year!

You can find the sign up at I'm Here. I'm Queer. What Do I Read? I hope you join in and comment away!!


  1. I love this challenge. I am really bad at commenting, although I read blogs everyday, including every post of yours. I'm going to try to be better at commenting this year. Thank you for your great blog and all the work you put into it.

  2. Sounds like an awesome way to get back into commenting. It really is important to connect with other bloggers.

    I am hoping to visit your blog more this year because I really enjoy it. It's hard because I follow so many blogs and my own blog takes so much time. But I'm trying.

  3. I'm just getting into commenting, although I've been following quite a few blogs for awhile. I like the idea behind the challenge as well.

  4. I probably won't officially join this challenge, but I really like the idea of setting a goal like that for myself. I was originally thinking of making Sundays my blog comment day, but commenting on a few every day will probably be better.

  5. Thanks for this info! I just signed up! I had a ridiculously busy fall that got me out of the habit of regularly commenting on blogs. I'm hoping to build that habit up again!

  6. Thanks for sharing about this contest-I think it's just what I need to stay motivated. I'm anxiously awaiting Jan. 28...I can't wait to hear what the new Printz book will be this year. I hope you'll post something after the announcement because it would be awesome to have an insider's perspective!

  7. I just signed up, too! Thanks for sharing the info and I'm going to check in regularly here--great posts!

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?

Tween Tuesday: Drizzle by Kathleen Van Cleve

Rating: 2.5/5 Stars Genre: Magical Realism Release Date: 3/4/2010 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Polly Peabody lives on a magical farm. They grow chocolate rhubarb, it rains every Monday at exactly 1:00, and her best friend is a plant named Harry. When the rain stops, Polly's brother falls ill, and her aunt wants to sell the farm, Polly must figure out a way to save her beloved home. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Drizzle is on our state book list and one of our Chat & Chew book club picks. The kids reviews were mixed on this one and sadly, it was my least favorite of all the books we read for Chat & Chew. The kids that liked it said it had action, but for me the plot was slow and dragged too much. The book could have been edited down and I lost interest in the story. I liked the magical farm that Polly lived on, but the magic wasn't enough to hold my interest. I felt like the plot went around in circles too much and never got going. The ending was also a bit
