showering my favs with love!! – the Third Annual Book Blogger Awards

2019 bba

big, big THANKS to this monster, may @ forever and everly for hosting the Third Annual Book Bloggers Award, an award meant to boost and appreciate book bloggers for all their hard work and dedication. i could make this a long, sappy introduction on how great it is for may to be hosting this, but i’m already going to sap her later on in this post, so we can just skip all the semantics though, i would like to know how she manages to stay so organized and clear-headed with all the projects she takes on,,,,,,,,answer the question, may

this post took WAY too long for me to write and i know i’m pushing the deadline I’M SORRY i’m trying my best and this was way harder than i expected and i somehow forgot how to write and speak english for the past week, so everything sounds redundant and !!!! but we’re working with what we got.

so without further babbling, allow me to shower some beautiful, hard-working bloggers with love and validation bc i’m a sappy little potato πŸ₯”

~ also, i’m super sorry if you weren’t featured in this post, plz know that i couldn’t include ALL my favourite bloggers (that list would be endless) and that i still loves you and appreciate you ~



  • Best Pre-Teen/Teen Book Blogger (13-19)

Nimika @ Word Haven

i seriously don’t understand how nimika doesn’t have an endless stream of followers bc wow her content is Epic in my totally non-biased, absolutely Professional opinion. she’s incredibly talented with an amazing supply of fan edits we’re talking quality and quantity here, stunningly detailed and immersive writing, humour that is hilarious in that self-depreciating type that vibes with my soul, and her taste in books is πŸ‘ŒπŸ”₯

and honestly, shes such a genuine person. she’s so kind and encouraging and her comments on my posts literally make my week, so y’all she really deserves all the love (and you should go follow her blog)


  • Best Adult Book Blogger (20+)

Marie @ Drizzle & Hurricane Books

marie is such a well rounded blogger, honestly i aspire to be on her level. she somehow manages to be super creative and entertaining with her blog posts, post frequently, and maintain an unmatched ability to blog-hop. i love the little doodles featured in her posts, her cute use of gifs, and her extremely relatable, open personality. she has such great recommendations, tags, and discussions, & visiting her blog is always a pleasure.




  • Best Book Reviews

Becky @ Blogs of a Bookaholic

becky is a really great blogger in so many ways but i absolutely love her reviews. they’re always so in-depth on her feelings and she explores so many aspects of the book. she reads from a whole variety of genres and truly gives you a comprehensive idea of what you’re getting into when picking up a book. and an added plus, her blog is so cute and accessible i adore the graphics and the colour scheme


  • Best Discussion Posts

Ilsa @ A Whisper of Inkilsa makes me jealous (in a good way) with her writing abilities. her discussion posts are always so relevant and deep. she’s so eloquent with her words and always expresses her true, honest opinion. i love her open personality and how her comments always make me SO FREAKING HAPPY and her recommendations are also fantastic so, quality blog but you didn’t need me to tell you that


Lily @ Sprinkles of Dreams

lily not only has a fantastic blog, but she is a fantastic person. I remember when she first started her blog and how i was so impressed with her posts and design, right from the start. her aesthetic is on point and her blogging voice is so strong and coherent. she brings up these really difficult topics that sometimes muddle through my thoughts but i have NO WAY of actually putting them into words and then lily comes along and says it in such an intelligent way. basically, she’s a genius and she’s super sweet and her posts are a delight to read.



  • Best Blogging/Writing Voice

Emma @ Emma Reads Too Much
Screen Shot 2017-08-23 at 8.08.20 PM

emma’s brilliant in so many ways but her blogging/writing voice definitely stands out. she definitely takes the time to review books, give her true, honest opinion, and go into detail about what worked and what didn’t, while being engaging, informative, and funny.Β and even though our ratings would show that we disagree on most books, hehe, her rant reviews?? legendary
also she’s a super kind human and hypes me up at any given moment, for no reason at all, so you should go show her some love


Aline @ Fully Booked

Aline’s blog is probably the newest blog I am currently obsessed with. her content is SO GREAT, she is funny and cute and talks about these really relevant, important topics (and also a lot of fun topics too) while managing to stay light-hearted and charming. i can’t wait to get back into the swing of blogging so i can go through her posts and binge read them all!


Julianna @ Paper Blots


if there was a ‘funniest blogger award’ ju would definitely win that one. she’s absolutely hilarious and it totally translates into her posts. i dont know how, but somehow she manages to even make wrap ups super entertaining to read. her aesthetic isΒ  beautiful and i genuinely get excited when i see her post on my reader




  • Best Personality

Taasia @ Librae Paints Pages

taasia is an absolute DARLING. she is so, and i cannot stress this enough, kind and encouraging and loving. i’m so happy to have become blogging friends with her and had the chance to see her grow along the way. honestly, she puts in so much effort into her blog and her passion and love for reading and blogging really shows. not only is she super sweet but her content is genuinely creative and interesting and relevant.

so yeah, follow!! her!! this!! second!!


Keri @ Are You My Book?

keri is a ball of sunshine. she radiates kindness and positivity in every one of her posts. i’m so glad i stumbled upon her blog and became friends with her bc shes a sweetheart in every way. she’s so supportive and caring and is a definite blessing to the blogging community πŸ’–



  • Friendliest Member of the Community

Dezzy @ The Thoughtful Voice

dezzy!!! i adore her and her blog in every way possible. dezzy’s posts are brilliant and she, as a person, is so kind-hearted and caring. basically, a real life cupcake i love popping onto her blog to see what she’s been up to and which books she loves (her taste in books is *chefs kiss*) i believe she is currently on a hiatus right now, but i am eagerly waiting for her returnflower
Olivia @ Purely Olivia

Olivia’s posts are such a treat to read. they’re always so entertaining and cute. i absolutely love her style, her recommendations, and her fangirling. her taste in books is spot on (cough emma mills cough) and i’m so happy to have met her through blogging, she’s such a pleasure to have around.


Virginia @ The Sassy Library Fox


virginia is so friendly and sweet. she always says the nicest things that make my day. her reviews are fantastic and i love how much effort and time she puts into them. i seriously admire her ability to stay active and creative while blogging (teach me plz)




  • Best Small Book Blogger

Kat @ Novels & Waffles

Novels & WafflesKat is everything i want to be when i grow up. her blog is absolutely stunning those graphics captured my heart from the second i saw them, she’s hilarious, and so freaking creative. she has these genius blog series like the dive into cover designs and her mini-review series that i absolutely adore and her blogging voice is so eloquent and fresh and entertaining. when she posts, i DROP everything i’m doing to come and read bc she’s that fabulous. she makes me laugh with her awful great puns and she’s so friendly and generous and kind (i’m sounding redundant, i know).

her love for waffles is the cutest thing ever and i can’t wait for the waffle emoji to be released so she can spam the world with it. basically, i’m obsessed with her and her blog.


  • Best Overall Book Blogger

May @ Forever and Everly

have you seen may’s blog?? an actual masterpiece.

may has helped me so much with blogging, she’s like my mentor, but dont tell her i said that bc it’ll all go straight to her ego can’t have that happen but seriously, i ADMIRE her and her blogging abilities so much. she remains to be informative, entertaining, and hilarious even thought she will constantly deny it seems like you have a problem with compliments, may i dont know who could be more fitting for this nomination bc may works SO HARD and is always trying to give back and boost voices.

okay i’m done now, big yikes, we shall never speak of this again


i severely apologize for how long this has taken me to write, it was all in my head but transferring it here took a lot more time and energy than i expected. heh.

also, i just want to thank everyone who has nominated me in the past couple of weeks, it meant so much to me (especially knowing that i am a blogging Disaster) and i really really appreciate youuuu

anyways, go ahead and give these beautiful blog people a follow (if you haven’t already) and tell me some of your favourite, hard working, amazing book bloggers so i can spread more love!!


now, excuse me while i go back into my blanket cave,
