Recent and Upcoming Bookworms Carnivals

In the past month, there were two great Bookworms Carnivals. The first one was about paranormal fiction, hosted here. I admit that I’m not interested in vampire books, but if you are, go check it out! The other carnival was all about local authors, hosted by Ali at Worducopia. This was lots of fun because it links to reviews for a variety of books from many genres.

A few more are upcoming, with at least one that you can definitely submit something too.

Edition 33 hosted by: the Bookworms Carnival

This upcoming edition is a free-for-all! What have you read lately that is noteworthy? Send it in (by Friday!) and then go visit the Bookworms Carnival site next week and find other’s reviews that might interest you. Carnivals are a great way to find new-to-you bloggers, and this carnival is a great random one to find bloggers of all types.

Edition 34 hosted by: Bella at A Bibliophile
Deadline for submission: July 24, 2009
Theme: YA Fantasy

I don’t think I’ve read any YA Fantasy lately; I may have to go find something light and fluffy to add to my summer reading list. But I know many of you do read YA and/or fantasy. Send in one of your favorite reviews.

Edition 35 hosted by: Rebecca Reads
Deadline for submission: August 14, 2009
Theme: Really Old Classics (pre-Shakespeare)
To submit a post, email: rebecca at rebeccareid dot com

This is the edition I’m hosting. I’m looking for reviews of works that are really old, as in pre-1600s. I’ll have a post about it next week. If you’ve read something that might work, or if you are planning on finishing something in the next month, get it reviewed and send me the link! I really am hoping a few a number of entries. It should be fun. Make sure you put “Bookworms Carnival” in the subject line.

  1. I’ve read a few older books lately but so far I’ve only strayed back to the 1700s. However I AM listening to a version of The Iliad right now – mostly because of your reviews. 🙂 If I finish it in time for your carnival I will definitely submit a review.

  2. I’ve just sent a review. It’s my first time participating in the Bookworms Carnival.

    I’ll try to write a post about old literature. I’m not to sure what book yet but I shall take a look.

  3. Thank you for the reminder! I haven’t read any really old classics in a while, but I do have some older posts I could use if that’s okay.

  4. Heather J. , I do hope you get to it by Aug 14! And that you enjoy it, most of all! I really enjoyed the Iliad and I’m looking forward to reading a different translation every year (for the next few years at least…)

    Damned Conjuor, oh I hope you enjoy the carnivals. I think it’s a fun way to find new bloggers or even just get a taste of ones you’ve seen before but may not be subscribed to.

    Nymeth, if you have nothing recent, old posts are just fine! The really old classics have been around awhile, after all!
