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. :)
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!
