I’ve only been blogging for just under two years, but I only really started taking it seriously in the last 6 months or so, so thank you to guys for nominating me, it means so much to me!
The Annual Book Blogger Awards was created by Joce @ Write Through The Night. I’m really cutting my timing to the bone with my nominations, but you guys still have until April 30th to support your favourite bloggers by nominating them by writing your own blog post like I’ve done, or by commenting on Joce’s post (linked above). This is a wonderful way to support your favourite book bloggers so I hope you guys will consider going and nominating people!
You don’t have to have been nominated to nominate other!
Best Teen blogger (13-19)
Kay @ Hammock of Books – I just discovered Kay and I already love her so of course, I had to nominate her!
Jamieson @ Jamishelves – Jamieson is a fellow Aussie blogger and she deserves all the love. She has a wonderful blog and has fantastic content on her blog and you should definitely check her out!
Best Adult Blogger (20+)
The Green Onion Blog – I have been following The Green Onion over the years and find their blog really different to most of the other bloggers I follow so of course, I had to nominate them!
Malanie @ MalanieLovesFiction – Malanie is a gem and we don’t deserve her.
Dana @ Dana and The Books – Dana’s blog is wonderful and total goals. Her blog looks fantastic and she writes really brilliant advice posts which are really interesting to read and very helpful.
Best Book Blogger From An Underrepresented/ Minority Group
Avery @ Red Rocket Panda – Avery’s blog is fantastic. Avery is Transmasculine/ Genderqueer and also has Fibromyalgia. Avery is one of the nicest bloggers I’ve ever had the pleasure to chat to and I hope you all check out his blog!
Lia @ Lostinastory – I love Lia’s blog, she is one of my favourite bloggers and she is one of my go tos for ya recommendations!
Marie @ DrizzleandHurricaneBooks – I have been following Marie’s blog since the start of my blog and I regret nothing. Marie writes fantastic discussions and advice posts and writes fantastic YA reviews.
I don’t think many of the bloggers I follow really read middle-grade, or at least if they do they don’t talk about it. But, I think I remember Kelly @ Kelly’s Rambles talking about her middle-grade tbr for this year back in January and that gave me a good idea of a bunch of books I might like to read with my brother this year, so I’ll nominate Kelly!
Charlotte @ Charlotte Annelise – I’m not big on romance novels myself, but I do love reading about other people love for them and Charlotte did recently talk about some of her favourite romance novels (which I have linked).
Science Fiction/ Dystopian/ Fantasy
Beth @ Reading Every Night – I nominate Beth because she’s a gem and I love her blog and all the fantasy books she reads!
Sarah @ BookHookedNook – I recently discovered Sarah’s blog and found that she reads a lot of the same fantasy as me so I had to include her here!
New Adult/ General Adult
Melanie @ NovelDescent – Melanie reviews a lot of middle-grade and YA but, she also loves adult so I’m nominating her for this one!
Literary Fiction/ Classics/Poetry
Laura @ Bbliophile – I don’t really read much poetry and my last experience wasn’t all that great but, Laura’s post has convinced me to give it another go and add some to my tbr.
Mystery & Thriller
Mikaela @ The Well-Thumber Reader – I think we’ve all accepted by now that Mikaela is the queen of discussions posts but what about her thriller recommendations? Mikaela is pretty much my one stop shop for Mystery/Thriller recommendations so I figured she was perfect for this category!
Zuky @ Zuky The Bookbum – Zuky is one of my favourite bloggers and she deserves all the love. If you love mystery/crime or horror you should check out Zuky’s blog!
Best Book Reviews
Chelsea @ Romweasley – Not only does Chelsea’s blog look fantastic but her reviews are actual goals!
Chelsea @ TheSuspenseIsThrillingMe – Chelsea is one of my favourite blogs and I adore her. She writes fantastic reviews and I wish I could write them as well as she does!
The Master of Weekly Features (Top 5 Wednesday, Waiting on Wednesday, Top 10 Tuesday, etc)
Destiny @ Howlinglibraries – Meet Destiny, she’s the queen of Top 10 Tuesday & Down The TBR Hole and I love her (and her blog).
Nia @ Shades0fPaper – I had to nominate Nia for this one! She does so many different weekly memes and is so much more dedicated to them than I could ever be which I think is so admirable!
Best Book Recommendations
Emma @ Emmareadstoomuch – As soon as I saw this category my mind immediately went to Emma – the way she talks about the books she loves always convinces me to pick them up. It’s absolutely all her fault that my tbr is so big!
Briony @ Missbriony – Briony’s blog is beautiful to look at but, I love her book recommendations too! She recently recommended Autistic writers for Autism awareness month & I also enjoyed her magical books recommendations!
Best Discussion posts
