Have you found an outdated listing above? If you click on a link that no longer works, please let me know! I do periodic checks to make sure all meme listings are still active, but I appreciate the heads-up if you find anything out-of-date.


More memes to come! I’ll keep adding content — let’s keep this directory growing!

NOTE: At the advice of some lovely folks who were kind enough to share their thoughts and opinions, I’m happy to include meme information provided by the host or by a participant. If you host a meme listed here and would prefer to have it removed, just let me know and I’d be happy to oblige.

    • Great! I’m mostly away from my blog this week, but I’ll probably do some updates to this page next week and will add your meme. Good luck with it! Looking forward to checking it out.

    • Hey, Kathleen! I was having a hard time finding your meme. I’d love to add it — so can you please send me the link, etc via my Contact page? Thanks so much!

    • Thanks for sharing your link! I’ve been away for a couple of weeks, but once I’m caught up, I’ll be updating the directory and will be sure to add your meme.

    • Thanks, I’ll check it out! If you have a minute, can you please send me the info via my Contact page? It really helps me stay organized. Thanks so much!

    • is no longer available.

      The authors have deleted this site.

      @thebooklovingnerd if the site has been moved please update. Was looking for the Trending on Tuesday.

      • Hi, sorry due to some technical problems, I had to stop the Trending on Tuesday feature, and move my site. I’ll start an entirely new edition in June. Sorry for the inconvenience. My new site is 🙂
        Good day!

  1. do you remember who used to do the random reads meme – IMLovingbooks (I think) – I saw the blog no longer exists and would love to pick up the meme, but want to talk to the previous owner

    • Thanks! I’ll be doing an update later this week, and would be happy to add your meme. 🙂 Could you please send me your info via my Contact page? It’s the easiest way for me to keep and organize the information for the directory. Thanks!

  2. Hi! I’m just starting out my book blog, and so I’m still learning the ropes. Are book memes for everyone to post, or only for the creator of the meme?

    • Book blog memes are typically for anyone who wants to participate. Rules vary a bit from blog to blog, but the concept is usually that the meme creator is the host and provides some way for other bloggers to share links to their own posts as well, so people can check out what others are doing.

  3. Hello. Thank you for this helpful directory. It will help a lot of people when it comes to making blog posts when they have no idea what to write next. Have a nice day! 🙂

  4. Hi, I’m currently hosting a new blog meme called “Exquisite Wordiness”. Every week, on Monday, I post a new word that I find intriguing and exquisite. However, there is a theme every month and all the words chosen for that month most connect with the theme. Check out my most recent post on my blog for more information:

    Can you please add this meme on your list? Thanks a lot!

  5. I came across this list while searching for weekly memes, such a useful post! Thank you for making it.
    I just started a weekly meme called Searching Saturday. I’m not sure yet if people will join. It would be amazing if you could include it in your list! Maybe that will bring it to people’s attention. I would really appreciate it ❤︎

  6. Thank you for this great list. I’m starting a new blog and was searching for some interesting memes and this list is perfect. Is it ok to “re-host” any of the memes enlisted here or should I ask for permission first (then, from who) ? I know it’s a stupid question but I’m a beginner and know near to nothing about this blogging world 🙂 Thank you!

    • Thanks! Good luck with your new blog! As far as I know, “re-hosting” is probably not considered okay (if you mean, setting it up on your blog with yourself as the host). But, participating with a link back to the host is fine!

  7. This post is awesome! Like so many previous commenters, I’m just getting started and this will be a great way to dial into the community. Also- skimming the comments section to see how meme’s come and go was super interesting. Thanks for the post and keeping it up 🙂

  8. Hi! I found this directory through a random search and it’s been invaluable. Thank you so much for compiling this! 🙂
    I also started a new book meme, but I’m unsure of whether I should send you the details. This is because my blog is still an infant and the only participant is… well, me.

  9. LOVE this idea! Really thankful that you’ve taken the time to compile it all! I found so many memes I could participate in, all thanks to you 😅

    • My pleasure! I was thrilled to discover Shabby Sunday through another blogger’s post! If you ever have any changes to the listing, just let me know and I’ll be glad to update. Thanks!

  10. Hi! I started a new blog with some original memes I was happy to learn about your directory thru my friend Lexxie at Unconventional Bookviews. I’ve been doing Thrifty Thursday for more than 4 years, and even at the 2 blogs I reviewed for before creating my own. It is reviewing Kindle freebies. Here is a link and it has its own graphic: Another meme I do is Friends on Friday where I have blogger friends post reviews: This is something new I just started and also has its own graphic. The third one is Series on Saturday: I think it is really fun. I try to start a discussion on series within a genre. The one of these most easy for others to do is Thrifty Thursday. I’ve thought about doing a challenge month for people to contribute for now I’m just inviting them to put review links in the comments and I’ll include them the next post also. Anne

  11. Hello, I love this list of memes! I have just started one up hosted on my own blog today and I was wondering if you would add it to your list if that is okay please? It’s called Monday’s Memo, and it’s a space to write anything you want about the week ahead. Here is the link to the page: I am also starting one on Wednesday but I haven’t launched that one yet. Thanks! 🙂

    • Sounds great! I’m traveling this week, so it’ll probably be this weekend before I have a chance to do any updates. Thanks for providing your info!

  12. Thank you ☺️ (sorry if this send a few times, my wordpress app keeps crashing and I wasn’t sure if it sent)
