    These are a solid list of memes. I have/plan to use some, but I’ve done some of my own too. However, I was wondering if you know of any memes like this not specific to books?

    • I’m not familiar will many that are not specific to books, the only one I can think of off the top of my head is Beautiful People by Paper Fury which is a “getting to know your character” meme for writers.

  • A fabulous directory Molly.

    Thank you for adding Talk of the Town.

  • Ooh, I love this resource. Thank you! If you’d like to include it, I’ve started a weekly blog hop for writers called WIP Wednesdays, where every Wednesday writers blog about their works in progress under different themes (like Your Favorite Character; Best Food Descriptions You’ve Ever Written; etc.) and basically encourage and motivate each other. It should be really fun. 🙂

  • Thanks so much for the fantastic list! It’s super helpful.

  • Hi, I just checked and the blog for Trending on Tuesday is no longer available!

  • I started a new one this year called “Can’t-Wait Wednesday” which is based off of “Waiting on Wednesday” that Breaking the Spine used to run (she’s been inactive since August 2016). The info post is here l, and my most recent post is here.

    This is a very helpful list!
    I actually have my own bookish meme, it’s called Down The TBR Hole and basically, you go through your tbr 5 books at a time, you read the synopsis and decide whether it is something to keep or delete. It’s really helpful to remove the books you have no interest in anymore from your TBR 🙂 You can find my latest post here

  • Thanks so much for compiling this list! I have been looking for new memes to do on Thursday and Friday and this list is so helpful 🙂
