Grand Opening!


Hello and Welcome All!


Beautiful Bookish Butterflies is the brainchild of two different bloggers, each with their own perspective and take on all things bookish in the blogging community. It's a place where you can find everything you love about books and blogging from reviews and discussions, to things with a much more personal touch and a look into our lives outside of blogging. Your bloggers are Stacie from Books Galore, Amanda from Book Badger and if you love(d) those blogs, you're going to love Beautiful Bookish Butterflies. With a sleek new design symbolising a new chapter in our blogging lives, join us in discussing all things bookish. We promise, you won't regret it.

what you can expect from us


When you bring two bloggers together, there's actually quite a lot that can and will come about, but for those who may be new to us, whether that be one or the both of us, we thought we'd ease you into our blogging ways with a loose schedule of what's coming up in the future. That way, we can't bombard our new subscribers with too much content.

Stacie - Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays:


Book Reviews - Stacie will continue to review books in her completely honest and to the point, blunt and feelings induced, fangirly way, with at least one a week being published and occasional conversation reviews with Amanda.
Discussions - in her usual spontaneous fashion, from Kindle advantages, to bookish wishlists and more, Stacie will be sharing all things bookish to get you talking, yet much more sporadically than her reviews will be.
No Books Allowed/Personal Pickings - Stacie is also bringing forth her No Books Allowed participation to BBB once a month, so don't miss her more personal and private ramblings about parenthood, life and everything in between.

Amanda - Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays:


Book Reviews - Amanda will also be bringing her longer, more critical and picky reviews with her to BBB, and will also be introducing collections of smaller, more miniture reviews for those harder to write throughout the year, and new series reviews.
Discussions/Personal Pickings - Amanda is well known for her rants, her raves and her hilarious (if she says so herself) discussions posts whether they be thought provoking or completely random, they're definitely making an appearance.

The Joint Adventures:


Who Wore It Better - hosted with Nitzan from The Book Babes Read, Amanda has hauled the feature over to BBB and intends to continue it's fortnightly fashion every other Thursday PM, with a little help from Stacie in tow, sharing the feature across the new blog. Keep your eyes peeled, the first comes this week..
Five Friday Favourites - Things are a changing with Five Friday Favourites, and instead of weekly, the feature will be monthly and with the help of Stacie, Amanda's confident she can give it a new life here at BBB. Huge thanks to Lara at The Paperback Palace for pushing Amanda to continue the feature. For those interested, the first new Five Friday Favourites will be on 30th January (AM) and will be Five Loved Series You're Not Sure You Want To Read.

so what happens now


That is an awfully good question! The first week of anything is usually the most important and we feel that Beautiful Bookish Butterflies is no different.. making the change to move to another blog together, to work together, and to start a new chapter in our blogging lives is a difficult choice to make and nothing would make us feel more comfortable about the process than your feedback. We wanted to prove why, to us, making this transition was the best decision, and hear your thoughts on the move, so we've put together a special opening week schedule just for you.

Mon. 5th Jan. - Amanda's Decision (+giveaway!)
Tues. 6th Jan. - Stacies's Decision (+giveaway!)
Wed. 7th Jan. - End of Year Survey 2014
Thurs. 8th Jan. - Who Wore It Better - City of Ashes
Fri. 9th Jan. - Amanda's Reading Challenges (2015)
Sat. 10th Jan. - Bookish Musings - I'm Just Being Honest
Sunday will be our Weekly Recap, hence why it's not featured here. It's not over yet though..

Giveaway!


Oh yes, it wouldn't be a celebration without a party would it? To celebrate, to thank and to start the year off with a bang, we've decided we're each going to host our own giveaways alongside our own introduction/decision posts this week! You'll have to check out the posts to see what's up for grabs though, we're not that nice..

The Final Piece


We'd like to give a shout out to all our followers and subscribers who followed us where we once where and just in case, we've kept our previous blogs open a little while longer and live and will do during this next week to allow you all to make the changes you need to in order to join us here at Beautiful Bookish Butterflies. We appreciate everyone of you who supported us and helped us grow during our old chapter and we hope you will enjoy what we do here in our next chapter. We'd also love to know what you think of the new blog. Is it what you expected? Can you find everything you need? What do you think of the design? Share your thoughts with us and celebrate our new beginning. We can't wait to get started!

    I hope your co-blogging adventure works as well as Kelley and I's did! It's a wonderful thing knowing you have someone on your side, there to help you when things get a bit out of control and willing to tell you if your ideas are good or not. Take advantage of it!

Oh, the Books! is a big inspiration to me and the perfect example of how BBB could be, I've already taken advantage of having Stacie on board with ideas, so it's definitely working!
