Book Blogger Love-A-Thon Awards

Sunday, February 16, 2014

I'm really excited for this mini challenge, especially since I feel like I don't celebrate other blogs enough on here. These are only some of my favorites- if I listed all of my favorites, I'd still be working on this post by the time it's supposed to be posted- but these blogs are fantastic. Definitely check them out! :)

Best Blog Design
Rather Be Reading Estelle and Magan have one of the most beautiful blog designs EVER. It is a work of art, while still being clean and easy to navigate. 

Best Weekly Feature
YA Highway: I never miss a Field Trip Friday post. Not only are there awesome writing links, but they have a ton of other interesting links about everything from reading to social issues to funny videos.

Best Discussion Posts
Writer of Wrongs: Every time I see one of Gillian's discussion posts in my BlogLovin' feed, it's an auto-read. They're just so fun and engaging! Check out Second Book Syndrome, if you need an example. :)

Friendliest Blogger
The Story Siren: When I was first starting to send ARC requests to publishers, I had no idea where to begin. I emailed Kristi to ask for help because she was one of the first bloggers I had followed and she was so sweet! 

Most Helpful Reviews
IrisjeXx: Iris (besides being one of the nicest, coolest bloggers out there) has really awesome reviews. They're thorough but also fun to read. 

Favorite Author Blog
Susan Dennard: Her writing tips are GOLDEN. Seriously, I used her prewriting tips for my current WIP and it's made the process so much easier and so much fun!

Favorite Author Twitter
Maureen Johnson: She's equal parts quirky, funny, and intelligent. 

Favorite Bloggers to Fangirl With
Aly at My Heart Hearts Books: I love talking about the Mara Dyer series (and our shared love of Noah) with her, and just books in general.
Alicia at Books and Words: Alicia and I don't just talk books- we also fangirl over our favorite TV shows, including Sherlock and The Crazy Ones. :)
Iris at IrisjeXx: We discovered each other's blogs through the Something Strange and Deadly book club, so obviously we like to fangirl about Eleanor's exploits!! 
Commenters: I love fangirling with everyone who stops by the blog. Even if it sometimes takes me a bit longer than I'd like, I reply to each one of your comments! 

What are some of your favorite blogs?

  3. This is me virtually hugging you to death! (well not to death obviously, but you get the idea!) Thanks for mentioning me, TWICE! You're the best :)
    I really wish I'd know about the LoveAThon, I didn't hear about it until Twitter was exploding with people mentioning it and by then it was too late to sign up.
    I am so missing out Eleanor filled conversations, by the way... I call for a reread!

    Another squishy virtual hug (because I can),
    Iris

      And yes! We should have a SSAD reread!

  4. You are so sweet. Thank you! I can't believe we just celebrated one year of the new design and I'm glad I still love it as much as I did then. xo
