"Around the Blogosphere" is a new potential regular feature on Reading is My Treasure. It's something I've been thinking of doing for awhile, and now I finally did it! I'm really bad at keeping up with features, so I'm not setting this one to a specific date or frequency (at least, not yet) or even making any graphics for it until I know whether I want to keep it.
This post is simply a way to share things around the blogosphere that I've noticed and think its worth knowing about.
Happened Last Week
The Book Blogger Love-a-Thon (#LoveAThon) took place on February 15th and 16th, and it was simply amazing. I didn't do any of the mini challenges, but a lot of other bloggers did. There was so much blogger love happening on Twitter (as you may have noticed) and I'm so glad I got to take part in it! Thank you to Alexa and Katelyn for hosting.☺
Happening This Week
This is still a few weeks away, but I'm really excited for it and I want it to go well! If you're at all interested in participating in a March read-a-thon, please stop by Jayne's post. Sign ups are open!
Say Hello to Baby Bloggers
Ashley at Ok, Let's Read
Let's give a warm welcome to Ashley, who entered the book blogosphere on February 5th! I recently met her through the #LoveAThon. The most memorable things I read by her this week have been a "Wreck it Wednesdays" post and a letter she wrote to Four in this post. You can find her at her blog (just pick a link) and on Twitter as @okletsread.
Regina at The Sunflower Pages
Regina is a newer blogger that I also discovered during the #LoveAThon. My first impression of her was that she has good taste in music and that she is a very nice and sunny person. If you want to go say hi (I know you want to), you can find her on her blog, Twitter (@TheSunflwrPages), and her YouTube channel.
Angel at -Spare Reads-
Angel has only been blogging for a couple months. I believe I met her here, through a couple comments she made on my posts (she always makes good comments☺). I've known her a lot longer than the other two, but she may new to you! You can welcome her to the book blogging community at her blog and/or on Twitter (@sparereads).

It's cover reveal season! I discovered so many new covers in the past week or so and, since there's so many, I decided to share them with you!
Most of these are HarperCollins books, so you can find details them and their reveals on The Official Roundup of Fall 2014 HarperTeen Cover Reveals (posted on Epic Recs).
Aren't they amazing?
Out of all the cover reveals, though, two stood out the most to me. Top Ten Clues You're Clueless (revealed on Stay Bookish) is most adorable out of the bunch and I'm so, so excited for it! Then there's Snow Like Ashes, which I was excited for even before Hybable revealed the cover. It's quickly become one of the books I'm most excited to read this year.
If I were to continue with "Around the Blogosphere," what would you like to see included in it?
