There is no better time to promote book bloggers than right now!
Once again, it’s time for the Book Blogger Awards! This year, the awards are hosted by the lovely May @ Forever and Everly and Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books. Please go to their award posts to find out more about how to nominate your favorite bloggers!
There are so many wonderful bloggers in this post, but please remember: if you were not included here, awards like these do not measure your value as a blogger. You are still a great addition to the community, and I still love you! I did a lot of internet-searching to make sure everyone fit into the categories I placed them in! (But if there’s anything I got wrong, please let me know!) I also did my best to nominate every blogger for only one award, and I even looked up the past winners from all the previous awards, to make sure I nominated everyone for something they haven’t won before. It was so hard to only list these bloggers, but I tried my best to make it work!
NOTE: A bloggers with under 500 followers will be indicated by 🌟 Please show them more love!

Best Overall Book Blogger
May is absolutely one of the best bloggers I know! Forever and Everly was one of the first blogs I ever followed, and May just continues to impress me with every single one of her posts. In particular, she has dedicated a lot of her writing talents to discussing the value of book bloggers and promoting diverse books, and just by reading those posts, you know she’s extremely passionate about this community. She’s funny, she’s committed, and her content inspires a lot us. May deserves this award because her blog fits into basically every category, there is no one else as involved in the community as her! 💕
And that’s it! I tried my best to include as many bloggers as possible, but I’m also aware that I haven’t been on the internet nearly as much as I used to be, and there are so many bloggers I haven’t met yet! (If you’re new to my blog, come say hi! I want to get to know you!)
If you were not mentioned in this post, I am so sorry! 🙈 I tried to nominate as many bloggers and to be as inclusive as possible, but if I didn’t include you, I still love you as a friend! And I probably need to get to know you more! (One of the best ways to reach me is by commenting on my posts! I will definitely notice you there, and if you want to be friends, I want to be friends, too. I’m always looking for more friends and wonderful bloggers!)
Lastly, thank you to everyone who has included me in their own nomination posts! 😊💕 Thank you so so much for thinking of me, and for putting in all of the time to create your post in general! (This one took me approximately 10 hours, not including all of the time I spent thinking of it in my head, so I know how it feels 😅 and I really appreciate everyone else who has made their own nomination posts!)
(And I listened to the entire audiobook of You Should See Me In a Crown while making this post! Shout out to that book for being fun and fast!)
