spreading confetti and love | fourth annual 2020 book blogger awards

by - 10:40 PM

Hello friends! I took my teacher certification exam that I've been studying for this past month a couple days ago which means that I finally have time to sit down and write all the posts I've been planning. The top one of my list is of course the Fourth Annual 2020 Book Blogger Awards which is being co-hosted by Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books and May @ Forever and Everly!  😍

The Book Blogger Awards serves as an opportunity to share some book blogging love and celebrates all the creativity and hard work amongst the blogging community. Before I get into the nominations, I just want to send a HUGE social-distanced hug to everyone. Ever since quarantine started and I was able to spend more time on the blogosphere, I've been reminded over and over again how amazing this community is. Every blogger out there deserves all the recognition in the world and I have met so many amazing people over the past couple of months. ❤️

best of their age
claire @ clairefy is so incredibly well-spoken and her blog has a very calming and cohesive theme. She explores a lot of how the books we read impact our everyday choices and outlook on life. All of her posts, whether on her blog or on instagram, also push me to think beyond my narrow understanding and to continue learning more about the world around me.

paula @ her book thoughts was one of the first bloggers I ever followed back in 2014-15 and I recently rediscovered her! She's so incredibly friendly on social media and is constantly engaging with her readers as well. She also puts a lot of work into featuring different authors and it's been really fun getting to read all the special spotlights!
best of book blogging

michelle @ magical reads - I always love reading Michelle's reviews because she puts a lot of her personality into her writing. She also champions a lot for diverse books and I've found so many great recommendations through her! (Currently reading The Gilded Wolves and my heartttt ❤️)
Bookish Wanderess
sofia @ bookish wandress put so much effort into her reviews and it's evident in how clear and articulate her writing is. Her reviews just encompass a lot of thoughts in such an organized manner and on top of that she's one of the nicest people I've met on the internet! 

clara @ the bookworm of notre dame - first of all, Clara's instagram is absolute aesthetic GOALS, but on the topic of recommendations, I love how creative she is. There is literally a recommendation list for any mood you might be in which for a massive mood reader like myself is so incredibly helpful. 
marie @ drizzle & hurricane books - I first discovered Marie through her discussion posts and they're some of my favorite because of how much thought is put into them. I love her voice and personality that shines throughout her writing and she's also so incredibly nice and fun to interact with! 

mieke @ mouse that reads is someone I've discovered pretty recently but I've absolutely fallen in love with her aesthetic. While I'm all about the pretty pink, pastels, and flowers, I also adore the muted and neutral color palette. Mieke's blog looks so relaxing and comfortable and just overall reflect her lovely character as well!

tiffany @ read by tiffany honestly writes some of the best posts and I'm not just saying that without reason. Her lovely personality shines throughout her posts and she's just able to express her excitement so clearly that whatever she writes about I automatically want to check out! She's also such a pro at finding the best gifs to add that extra emphasis and her posts are always so fun to read! 

belle @ belle can read is one of the nicest people I've met and I'm so grateful for her friendship! She always has the sweetest comments and also shares a lot of wonderful posts/videos that she finds and they're always an amazing way to discover new voices on the internet.💕

tessi @ book rapt is another person who I have gotten to interact with over the past couple of months and she's so incredibly nice! She pays so much attention to what is going on around the bookish community and is always up for a conversation as well! 

noura @ the perks of being noura is someone I've also discovered during quarantine and she has come up with some of the coolest readathons recently! I found her through her Kpop Readathon and she's also currently hosting a readathon inspired by Totally Spies! She's also super wonderful to interact with online and is always spreading so much positivity!

chloe @ marshmallow pudding is one of my favorite human beings ever. Not only is she super sweet and kind, but she's also such an aesthetic queen?!?! She always has a nice comment to share and is also constantly championing so many important social justice movements and spreading a lot of wonderful vibes. 💕

divine @ rea(d)ivine - I discovered Divine's blog through her Do I Make Enough Effort? My Struggles in Promoting Diverse Books and have since fallen down a rabbit hole with reading her posts. She shares some really great diverse recommendations but also incorporates some thought-provoking discussion in the role of the reader in promoting and consuming diverse books.
most importantly

sara @ words with wings just recently started in May I believe and has always created some super high-quality posts! I remember starting out and being a complete mess, but she already has developed such a wonderful voice as well in her writing that really shines through her posts. I definitely can't wait to see more of how she'll continue to grow!

joey @ my booktastic life also recently started but I wasn't able to find a banner on her website. She started off as a bookstagrammer but set up a blog in the past couple of weeks. I love interacting with her on social media because she's the absolute nicest person and I'm super excited for her blogging journey!
cw, joce, and skye @ the quiet pond are honestly such a powerful group! The Quiet Pond recently featured some AMAZING people in their Asian Heritage Month (May 2020) and Pride Month (June 2020) editions and each post is honestly such a gem to read. All of their posts are created with so much care and dedication, I honestly cannot stress how amazing they all are!
Ahh this was difficult but also so much fun to do! I'm honestly so grateful and happy to be part of such an amazing bookish community and getting to reconnect has been one of the best highlights of this entire quarantine. 

I would love to read your rendition of the book blogger awards if you also made a post so please link them below! Also, if you are a book blogger, please also leave your latest post - I've been so behind on blog hopping and I can't wait to get back into it now that I don't have to spend hours studying anymore!
