BI&SP Month Second Update

Another update for you regarding Body Image and Self Perception Month. More book recommendations have been added to BISP Novels and more Participants have been added to BISP Participants.

The blogger participants are:

Vanessa of Today's Adventure
Rebecca of Everything to do With Books
Christina from Reading Extensively

The author participants are:

Mary Hogan
Simone Elkeles
Laurie Halse Anderson
A. M. Vrettos
Suzanne Supplee
K. L. Going

As I said in the last update, I want to get started on my reading early so I can schedule my posts. I've sorted myself out a rough list of what I personally want to read for the month. From what I've heard so far, I don't think the other blogger participants are going to be doing as much for the month as I plan to - I want to post everyday with something - so with this in mind, I have a fair amount of books here. I've said before that I don't mind some overlap in reviews, as long as not everyone is reading all the same books, so those participating may want to take a few and use some others, it's all good. Check out the BISP Novels post, and have a think. Please let me know either in the comments or in an email (joannestapley[at]googlmail[dot]com) what you're plan is on reading for the month, so I can make sure there isn't too much overlap between you all.

My list for the month:

Food, Girls, and Other Things I Can't Have
Artichoke's Heart
The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things
Fat Kid Rules the World
Fat Cat
Everything Beautiful
Accidents of Nature
Leaving Paradise
North of Beautiful
Fairest of Them All
My Big Nose and Other Natural Disasters
Uglies (if not the whole series)
Pretty Face

Check the BISP Novels page to see who wrote them and links to Amazon UK and US to find out what they're about.

Laurie Halse Anderson's interview has been allocated to Sasha of The Sweet Bonjour, as she has already said she will be reading Wintergirls for the month.


  1. Wow, I'm amazed at how much planning goes into these themed months.

  2. It wasn't this hard last year when it was just me with some help from Luisa, and some guest blogs. I didn't realise how much planning it would take with more people involved, but I don't mind! It's fun :)

  3. Haha! Excel is your friend! :)

  4. do you still want something from me?

  5. Yes please! I'm emailing you now, Simmone.
