Blog Hop and Follow Friday!

Book Blogger Hop

Hello blog hoppers!
Welcome to The Smarty Owl.

Newbies: be sure to check out our reviews!
Old Followers: thanks for coming back :)

Again. Lack of posts. We hate it as much as you guys do. This week, our schedules have been brimming with heaps and piles of boring homework, sluggish days, and power-walking back and forth in our ocean of a high school, in a race to beat the bell. As you might have noticed, I even hadn't had time to write this post any sooner (it's 9:10) and I stole the same layout from last week in an effort to micro-optimize my time (I really should be doing my homework.) Anyway, I hope you have a great week! I am expecting my long overdue Sleepless review to come out sometime this week so stay with me here :)

and sorry for the boring colors. really annoying technical difficulties with colors right now >:(

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books

I'm totally loving Crazy for Books questions by the way. Very creative.:
Post a link to a favorite post or book review that you have written in the past three months.

---My favorite review of Okapi's would have to be her Poison Study review. It is the best one she has written. She masterfully interlaced supporting evidence with strong, confident opinions and weaved them together in beautiful prose. That specific review had been a finalist in a book review competition, and I believe she deserved that honor through and through.

---The piece I'm most proud of producing is my Firelight review. It just so happens that it was my latest review, which just confirms that I'm improving a little more each day.

  13. This internet site seems to recieve a great deal of visitors. How do you get traffic to it? It gives a good unique spin on things. I guess having some thing authentic or substantial to post about could be the most important factor.
