Thank you so much for the warm welcome into the book blogging community. The last six months have flown by and I never knew just how rewarding niche blogging could be. I was thrilled to be nominated (Mom, did YOU submit my name?!) for several categories and was over the moon to be shortlisted in two. I appreciate the recognition but know that no matter how comprehensive, there’s no way BBAW could shine light onto every book blog out there. That said, I’d like to add a few of my favorite book blogs that didn’t make the shortlists. A visit to these blogs would be time well spent!
Amy Reads Good Books: Not only is Amy my BBAW interview partner, but she’s also a talented writer and lover of books.
Heather at Book Addiction: Heather is at the top of my feed reader for alphabetical reasons AND she’s always one of my favorite go-to blogs for reviews that are honest and concise.
Lisa at Books on the Brain: Lisa was the first person to ever leave me a comment on my life blog, nearly two years ago. For that reason alone–the encouragement to keep blogging when NO ONE was reading my ramblings–is enough for me to highlight her. But Lisa also has great discussions, is cohost of TLC Book Tours, and has a real-life book club that I’d love to join–just a few more reasons to love her!
Jennifer at Literate Housewife: Not only do I adore Jennifer’s layout but I also enjoy her posts and reviews. Learning that she started her blog to help give her life some balance was also impressive to me!
Vivienne at Serendipity: My go-to blog when I need a hearty dose of England! V always has great pictures–of her books, scrapbooking pages, and tourist sites she visits. She’s always quick with a comment and very friendly!
Steph & Tony Investigate: Not a books-only blog but worth a visit if only to read the wonderfully erudite book reviews.
Write Meg! I love Meg’s blog–she and I have really similar tastes in books so this might be why I enjoy stopping by so much…but to be honest I think it’s really because she’s so friendly and nice–always leaving funny comments!
And here are a few of the over 85 book blogs on my reader–I’m only sorry I couldn’t include them all! I hope you’ll enjoy these blogs as much as I do.
Thank you to everyone who visits, comments, or links Book, Line, and Sinker. You help to make this blog what it is!
