Creating a Blog: Weekly Memes!

Hi guys!

Today, on my creating a blog series, I thought I would share with you ALL of the bookish weekly memes I could find!

What is a “Weekly Meme”?

A “Weekly Meme” is a type of blog post that corresponds with the day of the week! Normally, the theme would match with the letter of that day, so if it’s Monday, the theme would start with an M.



Musing Monday
Hosted by: MizB at Should Be Reading
Description: Musing Mondays is a weekly event where MizB will ask a book/reading-related question, and you answer with your own thoughts on the topic.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
Hosted by: Book Journey
Description: This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

Bookmark Monday
Hosted by: Guiltless Reading
Description: Do you have a bookmark you want to share? Just take a photo and link up in the linky!

Making Up For Monday
Hosted by: An Avid Reader; A Wannabe Writer
Description: Each week I will have a book-related theme or game, or something fun to do that week. And you can play along! All you have to do is find the question for that week, go to your own blog, write a post that day based on that question, and link your post to this one using the link up tool at the bottom of the post.

Music Monday
Hosted by: Total Book Geek
Description: Choose a book or a scene from a book. Choose a song that fits said book or scene.
Tell us why you paired them together. Don’t forget to share the title and author. Be careful not to include spoilers!

Books On Film
Hosted by: Bring My Books
Description: On the first Monday of every month, there will be a question/prompt to discuss. These will center around book to movie adaptations. Every other Monday, if you’d be so kind, just share one of your favorite movies and why everyone else should set down everything they’re doing, and get to watching it! Some fun things to include could be: how you found out about it, a fun gif from the film, a favorite quote, a trailer, and of course(!), how crazy the rest of us are for not having seen it yet!

Middle Grade Monday
Hosted by: Jordan’s Jewels
Description: Middle Grade Monday is a weekly meme where you spotlight one middle grade book (or series) on, well, Monday! It can be a book (or series) that you’ve read or one that is sitting on your TBR shelf. It’s completely up to you. The point of this meme is to showcase middle grade books that people wouldn’t have sought out otherwise.

Mailbox Monday

Pay Day Book Haul

Join me to share what books you have bought for yourself during the week and maybe find some new books to add to your TBR pile.

Rambling Monday
Hosted by: The Realm of Books
Description: Rambling Monday is about ranting/talking everything book related (or even not book related). You can talk about what is frustrating you in a book, you can talk about books you received, you can even talk about the movies to books. It’s your space to be creative and let go some of that energy, and what better day than to do it on a Monday!!

The quote you choose does not have to be romantic – it can be anything spoken by a book boyfriend. Keep in mind these are direct quotes from dialogue in a book.
