A NEW 2020 INTERVIEW BLOGGING SERIES: BLOGGERS WANTED!

bloggers wanted_interview series

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with an intro post to tell you all about a new series I’ll be introducing on my blog next year! I’m hoping to launch an interviewing series where I interview other bloggers, new or older, every month!

Next year I really want to focus on creating new and original content on my blog and I really want to spotlight other bloggers too. I really want to have a focus on the community as much as possible, so I’m really hoping to incorporate this series into my blog next year and for as long as I can!

I am really excited about this and would appreciate all of you sharing this or RTing this so I can reach as many bloggers as possible! I plan on *hopefully* interviewing 1 blogger per month but I am also low-key hoping I’ll be able to interview as many as possible of you guys, as I can per month &/or extend this series into 2021!

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.

Young Adult

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.

Middle Grade

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!

Romance

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!

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

Blog Aesthetic

Isla @ @WhisperOfInk – ISLA’S BLOG IS LIFE, I AM IN LOVE! ❤️❤️ Isla’s blog look is pretty simplistic but her blog post headers are always to die or so I couldn’t not nominate her for this category!

Ayla @ Books & Babbles – Ayla’s blog is beautiful and I am 100% jealous. Not only is Ayla’s blog content wonderful, but when I click on her blog I don’t want to look away because it is absolute goals!

Somehow I’ve only become friends with her this year and I won’t lie, it’s changed my life just being able to flick over to Twitter and talk to Rebecca about blogging. She’s always game to talk and listen to me moan if I want to talk about my blog and I love her for that.

Sydney @ Fire and Rain Books – Sydney is my soon-to-be book buddy! Apparently, there’s a theme with these bloggers – I love buddy reading with them! Sydney is one of my new favourite bloggers and I hope you guys all check her out!

BLOGGER LOVE // 27.01.18 – 02.02.18

Hey guys, I’ve been slightly obsessed with giving back to the blogging community lately – I’ve been obsessively blog hopping and following new blogs which I’ve been absolutely loving!

Also, I’m aware that I talk about a lot of different blogs in this post but, in January I found so many new-to-me blogs and I got a tad excited!

Remember: if it’s in red, it’s a link!
