Today, I’ve decided to take part in the Book Blogger Award by nominating bloggers that I know for some of the categories! I love all the blogs I follow, and at first, I didn’t want to do this because I didn’t want to leave anyone out, but I decided to just go ahead and do it to help some of you win! I LOVE all the blogs I follow and even if I don’t nominate you, know that you are still really awesome 💚💚
This year, the Book Blogger Awards are being hosted by the amazing May @ Forever and Everly. You basically write your own post with your nominations for each of the categories and link back to her so that she can see them. The nomination round ends on Saturday, July 20th which means there are 8 days left so if you’d like to take part, you need to hurry!! To see all the rules and categories, visit her post here!
Without further ado, let’s get started!!!
Best YA Book Blogger
This has to go to Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads. She has such a gorgeous blog and she’s constantly highlighting YA books and doing amazing author interviews/guest posts and giveaways every Wednesday! I also love her design!! It’s really stunning!
Best Mystery / Thriller Blogger
Zoé @ Zooloo’s Book Diary is constantly reading and reviewing Thrillers and Mysteries. She’s usually my go to blog (and GR account lol) when I’m trying to find new thriller books to read! She also just gave her blog a really cute makeover so definitely go check her out!
I’d also like to nominate Jennifer @ Tar Heel Reader because she writes amazing reviews and reads amazing thrillers. I always look out for her review when I’m deciding which books to add to my TBR and love reading her opinion!
Best Book Reviews
Christina @ A Recipe and a Read. I mean, she has recipes for delicious food at the end of many of her reviews which I absolutely love and which also make me hungry. She’s also super kind and amazing and I love her writing style!! We also both love thrillers and mystery so that’s an added bonus. She’s been a bit MIA recently, but her reviews are truly wonderful!
Best Discussion Posts
Xandra @ Starry Sky Books does amazing discussion posts that I love to read! She’s always talking about new and interesting topics and I also really like the starry theme of her blog. Some of my favorite posts are two of her most recent ones: What Makes a Novel “Young Adult & Why Are you Blogging Right Now
Best Blog Aesthetic
This is going to Kat @ Novels and Waffles because her blog is absolutely stunningly gorgeous!! She recently changed her blog’s look and even before she did, it was an amazing and gorgeous place that always made me crave waffles!! And her new mini reviews on sticky notes are just so! adorably!! gorgeous!!! She’s also amazing and really nice and it always makes me smile reading her comments!
Friendliest Member of the Community
Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads has been so supportive and so kind ever since I joined the book blogging community. She also nominated me and I’m so flattered and happy (THANK YOU!!!!). Though we don’t have the same favorite genres, I absolutely love heading over to her blog just to read her posts and drop comments. She also loves to bake (I do too!!!) and I like to read some of her recipes sometimes because she’s a better baker than me lol. She’s just an amazing and super friendly human being!!
Best New Book Blogger (started blog after August 2018)
Can I nominate myself? Lol, just kidding. I’m going to nominate Umairah @ Sereadipity for this one. Umairah started blogging in late December of 2018, and her blog and posts are amazing. I also seriously love the watercolor-ish background and she has also written a few great discussion posts.
There are still so many amazing bloggers out there that I love. I seriously appreciate every single one of you for writing such amazing content and being super welcoming and also really kind people. It’s tough being a book blogger, but because of all of you, I’m reminded of why I love blogging and it makes me want to continue. Good luck to all the nominees this year!!
