Reminder that the 2nd Annual Book Blogger Awards are going on right now!!!!! If you haven’t placed your nominations yet, head over to the rules page and vote! This is our chance to nominate all of your favorite book bloggers and give them the recognition that they deserve (plus, getting nominated might just make someone’s day). Nominations close at the end of the month.
I’m so excited to write this post. quite possibly my favorite part of blogger awards is that it gives me the opportunity to scroll through all of the amazing bloggers that I follow, and remember why I love each and every one of them. The process of choosing one blogger over another is really, really hard, and it took me a long time! But without further ado, I present to you, my nominations for the book blogger awards. Make sure you cast your nominations as well 🙂
(ps i sort of got lazy as i went and stopped writing as much for each person i nominated, so don’t take it personally, i was just low on time!)

Zuky @ The Book Bum– i admire Zuky’s blog and her dedication so much, and love reading everything she posts.

Kourtni @ Kourtni Reads— Kourtni’s book blog is incredible, and I love reading all of her posts, even if i don’t necessarily read as much YA as she does!

She’s normally 100% on point with her recs and i know i can trust her to give me my next to die for read.

Mikaela @ The Well Thumbed Reader— she always manages to come up with the most interesting, potentially controversial discussion posts possible. i love it and am infinitely jealous of her creativity

Nia @ Shades of Paper— her blog is gorgeous and i’m so glad i found her in the big/lil blogger match-up i participated in a while back!
Social media influencer
Cait @ Paper Fury— Cait’s blog is incredible, and (if this is even possible) her Twitter game is even more impressive
Best personality / friendliest member of the community
Isla @ A Whisper of Ink— I love isla and i love her blog, and even though she’s not been blogging as often as she used to, i still look forward to everything that she uploads. Plus, i know that she’ll always be there to talk if i need to!
Best Overall Book Blogger
May @ Forever and Everly— I LOVE MAY’S BLOG! She’s one of the most amazing people ever, her blog is always great to read, it’s beautiful, and it’s just generally amazing… go check it out people.
Categories I did not nominate people for, because i don’t follow anyone who applies:
- middle grade / younger
- prettiest bookshelf
- new book blogger (i feel SUPER BADLY about this one)
Make sure you cast your nominations before the end of the month! The whole point of these awards is to recognize incredible book bloggers for all the hard work they do, and to hopefully find some more amazing blogs to follow.
