Meme Directory for the Book Bloggers!

One thing I’ve noticed that a lot of book-bloggers do so they can connect with other book-bloggers is by participating in link-ups via Blog hops or weekly memes. I’ve participated in one or two or three myself (although I’m not a regular) and it’s cool to visit other blogs, read what their thoughts are, leave a comment and have them return the favor. Anyway, I just wanted a way to collate all these memes/hops that I’m aware of here for easy reference in case I have the itch to participate in one (at any day of the week). And I thought I’d share with the rest of you 🙂 Happy blog hopping! (And if you find this meme directory helpful, I’d appreciate if you’d share the link to this post on your own blogs!)

p.s. I’ve been updating my “Spotlight on the WordPress Book Bloggers!” post and am happy to report that I’ve got more than 400 WordPress book blogs listed in the directory as of today 🙂


Bargain Book Bonanza (Monday-Thurs book haul linky party) (by Baja Greenawalt’s Cozy Book Nook)

BBB is a book haul linky party to showcase all the great books (new, used, vintage, electronic, audio) that we bargain book lovers score on sale… dirt cheap… or free.

Each Monday through Thursday, everyone is invited to carouse, make merry and revel with bargain book abandon!

BBB book(s) do not have to be current purchases. If a past book bargain did not get the bravo it deserved from your real life friends/family, claim your bragging rights now!

Bookish Images Monday (by Cindy’s Book Club)

I’d love for you to participate in Bookish Images Monday.

Remember, you do NOT have to post a ton of images–one will be fine if that’s all you want to do! (I just tend to go a little crazy.)

They can just be interesting or pretty book covers if you want. Or just pictures of books, bookcases, libraries or bookstores. Or they can be humorous, or vintage, or related to movies based on books. They just need to be book-related in some way.

Cover Crazy (by The Book Worms)

I will post mine weekly and usually on Mondays, but you can post it on any day and whenever it is possible for you.

The point of this meme is to admire the art and beauty of a book’s design, so I’m going to post minimal words. It is up to you to write how you feel and what you like about it the way you’d like to.

Fast Forward (by Mysterious Books)

Hello all my fellow bloggers and readers, another week has begun and it’s time to look forward and see what this week will bring.
I hope you will play along in this meme.

Marvelous Middle Grade Monday (by Shannon Messenger)

If you want to join in the MMGM fun, all you have to do is blog about a middle grade book you love (contests, author interviews and whatnot also count–but are most definitely not required) and email me the title of the book you’re featuring and a link to your blog. It’s easier if you email me before Monday, that way your link will be included in the post from the moment it goes live. But if you decide to spontaneously join the fun, I do update the post at several points throughout the Monday. Just email me a link and I’ll add you when I do!

Thumbs Up Tuesday (by Dead Trees and Silver Screens)

Welcome to Thumbs Up Tuesdays!

I started this meme because I believe that bloggers should celebrate each other. Sometimes as a blogger, you put your heart and soul into a post and you get no feedback or recognition. So that is why I created Thumbs Up Tuesdays!

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?


Before the Blog (by YA Litwit)

I think it’s safe to assume that if you are a book blogger, you didn’t start reading when you started blogging. If you’re like me, you read hundreds, if not thousands of books, before you started blogging. I often think about past books that I really loved, and would like to review on my blog, but it seems that I have a difficult enough time keeping up, reviewing the books I’m currently reading. I know there are loads of you out there that have past gems that you would like to spread the word about as well, so I thought we could motivate eachother to do it each week, We tend to review what is new, which is why many people read the blogs, but there are so many fabulous books that people don’t even know about; books that they NEED to read. “Before the Blog” is a place where bloggers can post a review of a book they read and loved BEFORE they started blogging about books, along with the answers to a few questions about their choice:
Why did you choose this book?
When did you read this book?
Who would you recommend this book to?

Booking Through Thursday (by Booking Through Thursday)

Copy the questions, paste them into your blog and answer them.

Thankful Thursday Meme (by Oasis for YA)

We’ve started a meme — for you! WHY? We know that the surest way to get good things in life is to be thankful for what you already have. So why not encourage a group thankful-fest once a week in which we send out good energy and hope to get some back in return?

That’s what HE said Thursday (by Chapter Break)

Thursday Tea (by Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog)

What book are you reading (and do you like it)? Tell us a little about your tea and your book, and whether or not the two go together.

Top Spot (by Skype Sisters)

Top Spot is a new monthly blog meme hosted by the Skype Sisters. Every month we will get together to share our favorite read from that month and we would love for you join us! This meme will take place over the last weekend of every month (posts the last Thursday evening of the month), giving us all a chance to gush over the great reads we’ve encountered and bring an awesome ending to the current month.

It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

Book Blogger Tag Along Friday (18 & Over) (by Bitten By Paranormal Romance)

18 and over book bloggers tag along is for adult book bloggers to get to know each other and hopefully gain more followers. It doesn’t matter what sub-genre you read as long as you read and review adult books.

Book to Film Friday (by The Book Hookup)

Book to Film Fridays are your opportunity to tell us who you imagine would play a specific character if the book or series became a movie. Of course, we’ll also be sharing our ideas and opinions too. The purpose of all this…to have fun…and maybe to sway some Hollywood casting agents!!

Cover Art Weekend Blog Hop (by Socrates’ Book Reviews)

This is a brand new meme to display all those beautiful, funny, crazy and even those that make you think book covers you come across each week. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I love looking at different book covers. You may not be able to judge a book by its cover, but they are sure fun to look at.

On My Wishlist (by Book Chick City)

My wishlist is so long! There are old books, current books, and future releases all on my wishlist waiting to be bought and devoured. And to be honest, most of the books stay on my wishlist as I just can’t buy them all, there are far too many and so no-one gets to hear about these amazing books. So I thought I would host a weekly meme to share the books that are on my wishlist, and if you are anything like me (and I have a feeling you are!), then you will have a mega wishlist too.

‘On My Wishlist’ will be posted every Saturday.

Quote It Saturday (by Freda’s Voice)

Weekly Geeks (by Weekly Geeks)

Every week there’ll be a different theme. One week might be “catch up on your library books” week and the next might be “redecorate your blog week” or “organize your challenges” week or “catch up on your reviews” week. It’ll be fairly bookblogocentric, but not exclusively.


5 Best Books (by Indie Reader Houston)

People like lists. 5 Best Books is a weekly meme that asks participants to list what they consider the 5 best books on a given topic. Take a sentence or two to tell us why you liked it. If you want to participate, grab the button and add your blog to Mister Linky.

In My Mailbox (by The Story Siren)

Every week I’d share the books I received that week… ones I’d bought, or gotten at the library, and ones that I’d receive to review on the blog. That way I could mention titles that might not otherwise get some face-time on The Story Siren.

Initially In My Mailbox was something I did myself, but ultimately I thought it would be even better if other bloggers shared in the idea… thus the craziness of IMM was born! In My Mailbox is a great way for bloggers to socialize and network their blogs, it’s also a great way for bloggers to share upcoming releases!

Know Your Book Blogger (by Book Nerd)

Each Sunday (Australian time!) I will be posting a random question – thanks to Plinky and I’ll answer it here.

It’s a quick way to make new blogger friends!

Sunday Status (by Reading Romances)

Super Cover Sunday (by Seeing Night)

A Meme dedicated to discussing book covers. Pick a new cover artist or book cover each Sunday and discuss what you like about the design.

Top 5 Sundays (by Larissa’s Life)

Every Sunday I will post a TOP 5 list on the blog. It can be about anything and every week I’ll have a new theme

Write a post listing your TOP 5 choices within the theme I chose (or was chosen on a poll) for the week.

*Note* I did not include the Sunday Salon in the directory since they have closed off the Salon to new memberships.

If you host or participate in any memes that I’ve failed to include in this listing, kindly let me know in the comments section so I’ll update? Again, if you find this meme directory helpful, I’d appreciate if you’d share the link to this Meme Directory for the Book Bloggers on your own blogs!)
