Estella's Revenge Linkapalooza, Vol. 1

With the beginning of the academic term in full swing, and with a slightly underactive brain this morning, I'm really surprised I had such a GOOD IDEA! Y'all might remember that Heather, Melissa, and I used to edit a monthly (or quarterly) e-zine of bloggy items called Estella's Revenge E-Zine: posts, features, reviews. Some of the items were original content, and some were re-printed from first runs on other blogs. I liked to think of it as a blog "collective."

The whole point was to shine a light on bloggers. What I've brought you today is my first Estella's Revenge "Linkapalooza" post paying homage to the e-zine days.  Lots of bloggers share linky roundups, but I chose to only share links from my fellow bloggers, not media outlets or other collective publications. This is meant to spread the word about great posts and great reviews, and it's also somewhat selfish because it's a good way for me to keep up with posts I'd like to revisit.

On Fridays I'll be posting Linkapaloozas, many of them more far-reaching than this one. Already this week I've read multiple posts and some specific reviews that I now CANNOT FIND in my Google reader, and I hope this little problem is a thing of the past with this Friday feature.Today's links are courtesy of a quick romp through my Google Reader. I promise I'll research further and wider from now on...

And maybe I'll start one of these things. Today, I just don't have the gumption.

  1. Cool idea, Andi! I'm looking forward to following the links you highlight.

  2. I love this kind of stuff too!!! The Goodnight Ipad link was my favorite this week :)

  3. I really miss your e-zine! I really enjoyed the writing I found there. Andi, I still have my ARC of Cinder. Email me your address and I'll send it off to you next week.

  4. You are awesome for doing this. I've wanted to for so long, but I've been too dang lazy to do it. :) And thanks for including me!

  5. Oh, I love these bookish links- thanks for sharing them. The majority of those blogs are on my reader, too :-)

  6. I like your Linkapaloozea, I'll be checking out all of the links. And thanks for including my review :)

  7. This is a great feature, I love all the links!

    I agree with you on Heather's review of The Language of Flowers...I am moving that one to the top of the TBR list :)

  8. Loving the linkiness! I am also stoked that you chose my review to highlight, that's so awesome! I got a chance to see the Goodnight Ipad book when I was at SIBA, and have to say that I thought it was really cute. Need to go off and check out all these links now! Great round-up today, Andi!

  9. I didn't know there was a group of iPhone converts out there but I certainly belong to it as well. I went from Apple hater to iPhone fetishist within a day.

  10. You know, I have been meaning to do the same thing on my blog! Way to be way more on the ball than me :) Go Linkapalooza!
