2018 Book Blogger Awards Nominees [where Shealea can’t seem to shut up about how amazing book bloggers are]

The nominations for the 2018 Book Blogger Awards are open until the last day of April(!!!) – which means that I am right on time in releasing my set of nominations for the awards. However, before I pay tribute to a bunch of incredibly talented, remarkably dedicated, and just out-of-this-world awesome bloggers, let me provide a bit more context regarding the 2018 Book Blogger Awards.

First of all, the Book Blogger Awards was first organized by Joce @ Write Through the Night back in 2017, making this just its second year (although, of course, we’re all hoping that there’ll be more to come). Just as the name suggests, the Book Blogger Awards consists of numerous awards that are exclusively for book bloggers. If you’d like to learn the specific mechanics on how to nominate and vote for book bloggers, then let me refer you to this post where Joce explains everything you need to know.

I actually first encountered this through the nominations posted by Malanie @ Malanie Loves Fiction, and I immediately fell in love with the idea of providing a platform to recognize the hard work and dedication of book bloggers! I always, always, always make it a point to give recognition to other book bloggers whenever I can – be it on my monthly synopses or even on some book reviews. Having another avenue to express my love and appreciation is very much welcome here in That Bookshelf Bitch!

Without further ado, here is the list of my nominees for 2018!


THE BLOGGER


{ best teen book blogger }

Aimee @ Aimee, Always

Aimee is only 18 years old – that’s three years my junior! – and she already has all the tricks and tips of blogging like a queen under her arsenal. I am in love with everything on her blog from the lovely aesthetics to the well-written content. Additionally, Aimee likes to help out fellow bloggers (there’s a blog help section on her blog!) and never hesitates to share what she knows and what she’s learned from her own experiences. Check out her post on free blog design resources!

{ best adult book bloggers }

Pia @ LIBROMANCE

I love Pia for several reasons: (1) she’s Filipino and Kapampangan; (2) she is unapologetically queer and proud; (3) her blog’s layout is so wonderfully neat (be still, my minimalist-loving heart); and finally, (4) she frequently reviews books I’ve never ever heard of. With regards to the fourth reason, although her book reviews occasionally make me feel like an uncultured swine, I nonetheless really appreciate her constant bringing of fabulous, thematically relevant (and positively feminist!) titles into my bleak life. Pia also displays a particular finesse in coming up with eye-catching titles for her impressively comprehensive, skillfully written reviews. I cannot stress how badly I look up to this woman!

Bianca @ The Ultimate Fangirl

For an adult, Bianca is certainly an energetic kid at heart with tons of overflowing feels for books – and that’s just one of her many, many endearing qualities! I really, really enjoy her content and just having conversations with her on Twitter. Definitely one of my favorite book blogging people and a ball of sunshine to boot!

{ best book bloggers from an underrepresented or minority group }

Puput @ Sparkling Letters

I am heartbroken over Puput’s sudden blogging hiatus (although I completely understand the reasons behind her decisions) because I am absolutely in love with her content. Aside from writing fantastic reviews, Puput also excels in writing, well, literally just about anything. She always has something interesting to say, be it on the differences of reviewing on Goodreads and on a blog to the struggles of being an international book blogger. Seriously, her content is a lot like dark chocolate – I can’t ever get enough! I also cannot get over how downright beautiful her layout is! I mean, look at it (and subsequently, cry over its unparalleled aesthetic appeal). Puput, the blogging world misses you dearly! I, along with countless others, are eager for your return, you book blogging queen you.

Fadwa @ Word Wonders

Why are all my favorite book bloggers on a hiatus? No matter. Fadwa is actually one of the bloggers I look up to the most! Not only does she have A++ taste and judgment concerning books, but she also dedicates a large portion of her discussion posts to topics and issues relevant to diverse book bloggers. Her honesty is absolutely refreshing and very much-needed, and everything about her is simply awe-inspiring. I 100% stan without question.


BEST GENRE BLOGS


{ young adult }

Crystal @ Paper Royalty

I remember Crystal’s wonderful review of Holly Bourne’s It Only Happens in the Movies, and since then, I’d become a fan of her reviews and other content!

Marta @ The Cursed Books

I love how Marta can easily express her opinions in concise, reader-friendly reviews. It’s a skill I constantly find myself struggling in, but for Marta, it’s pretty much effortless. If you want a clearer idea of what I’m talking about, here is one of her reviews. See for yourself.

{ middle grade }

Carmen @ Kindred Books

I never thought I’d ever get hyped about a children’s book, but Carmen has proven me wrong. With adorably precious photos of books and a great writing style, I am now interested in reading about narwhals.

{ romance }

Ezrah @ Eye Heart Romance

Ezrah knows more than a thing or two about romance – trust me on that! Her blog is largely centered on romance titles, which makes her the perfect candidate for romance recommendations. I really, really enjoy reading her reviews, especially because they’re usually formatted in the most adorable way. Additionally, her reviews include a concise rating report which rates specific aspects of the book (i.e. plot, characters, romance, rereadability, cover), which are very helpful. Eye heart her layout, too!

Ari @ The Romance Corner

“Romance reviews – with a dash of cynicism” is the best description for Ari’s content and is not-so-coincidentally her blog’s tagline. The Romance Corner is my go-to blog when I am in the mood for well-written, heart-fluttering romance novels. That and I am in love with its overall appearance and aesthetic. Check out Ari’s review of Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett.

{ science fiction / dystopian / fantasy }

Erika @ The Nocturnal Fey

More often than not, Erika and I share the same taste when it comes to science fiction, dystopian, and fantasy reads – which is largely why I almost always refer to her blog for recommendations within those three genres. Satisfaction (and totally superb recommendations) guaranteed! Also, and totally unrelated to my first point, Erika’s bookstagram is so stunning I am green with envy.

{ new adult / general adult }

Bea @ Confessions of a Pinay Bookaholic

When it comes to new adult and/or adult romance reads, my go-to for recommendations is no one else but Bea! Seriously, she has such a good eye for this sort of thing – it’s probably because she has read so many new adult and adult titles that none of us could ever hope to match her expertise (I’m only partly kidding). If you’re looking for a steamy romance, then look no further! Bea’s got you.

{ literary fiction / classics / poetry }

Holly @ Nut Free Nerd

Holly’s Feminist Friday feature is probably my favorite thing about her blog, but I’d have to say that her reviews on classic literature are an extremely close second. As an English major, her insight and thoughtfulness are both really remarkable.


THE BEST OF BOOK BLOGGING


{ best book reviews }

Ashley Rae @ Thrifty Bibliophile

I frequently rely on Ashley’s reviews because she writes so concisely and honestly when expressing her opinions on books. I also really appreciate how she takes the time to rate specific aspects of the book (i.e. quality of writing, pace, plot development, ending, characters, enjoyability, ease of reading) because these mini-ratings really help me identify the possible strengths and weaknesses of books, which allows me to better gauge whether or not a book is worth picking up. Plus, Ashley has a knack for taking visually pleasing photos of books, which she usually includes in her reviews.

Hannah @ Peanut Butter & Books

I only stumbled across Hannah’s blog recently, and I instantly hated myself for not discovering it any sooner. The moment I finished reading her impressively comprehensive, beautifully formatted (yes, format is always a plus point, okay) review of And I Darken by Kiersten White, I knew right away that I would, from here on out, be avidly awaiting more of her content. Especially her book reviews.

{ best book recommendations }

Joshua Gabriel @ HIGHLIT

Joshua certainly never fails to deliver on his blog’s promise of “getting high on literature”. I have lost count of the titles I eventually picked up simply because his reviews are so informative and insightful, and his taste in books is almost always complimentary to my own. I really love how his blog is full of diverse reads with socially relevant themes. I mean, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Language and Literature, should we even be surprised? Better check this guy out! You definitely won’t regret it.

{ best discussion posts }

Analee @ Book Snacks

I actually love everything about Analee’s blog, not just her discussion posts, although they’re definitely my favorite content from her. Analee writes so thoughtfully and insightfully with a refreshing honesty and without ever failing to entertain readers. The topics she discusses range from serious issues like the pressure of writing #OwnVoices reviews to sillier things like how reading books is kind of like playing or watching sports. Seriously, if you’re looking for brilliant and entertaining content but you’re not following Analee, then you’re probably doing something wrong.

Sarah @ Written Word Worlds

If there were medals given to the most creative and most entertaining discussion posts, then Sarah would probably hoard most of them. One of her recent posts, which talked about GIFs replacing star ratings, is one of my all-time favorites. Sarah never fails to deliver compelling humor and sharp insight in whatever she writes! I am always on the lookout for her new content.


THE OTHER STUFF


{ most engaged in the community }

Avalinah @ Avalinah’s Books

Remember when Avalinah created a community and support group for new book bloggers? What about when she started the #NewBloggers101 series where she writes informative and incredibly helpful instructional posts for amateur bloggers, such as a quick guide to Bloglovin’? Need I say more? I didn’t think so. Avalinah never fails to go the extra mile to provide services and her expertise to all members of the community!

Marie @ Drizzle & Hurricane Books

Honestly, people, a nomination list for any book blogger awards is incomplete without Marie in it. Marie is one of the most wonderful and delightful book bloggers out there! I remember how she immediately welcomed me into the blogging community when I first started blogging, and it’s a kind, much-appreciated gesture I will never, ever forget. Aside from being the friendliest and most engaging person I’ve ever encountered, Marie writes humorous yet very profound discussion posts, ranging from how to properly review books to monetizing your blog.

{ blog aesthetic }

Fanna @ F A N N A

I am not exaggerating when I say that I cannot get enough of staring at Fanna’s absolutely beautiful blog. For one thing, the color palette (i.e. reds and grays) she’s using was the same palette I initially wanted to use for my own blog’s design – because really, nothing says bitch quite like bold tones of red and sharp shades of gray, am I right? – before I made the decision to go for shades of purple and white instead. Although I am very much happy with my blog’s layout design, I cannot help but feel a teensy bit of envy because Fanna definitely owned those colors as her own. The overall look of her blog is an extremely pleasing, wonderfully aesthetic balance between stunning and clean. I love how it’s not strictly minimalist but shows certain orderliness to it as well. I am totally babbling, but I just really love the look of Fanna’s blog! Plus, she writes great reviews as well! I was lucky enough to work with her on my blog tour for Haley Sulich’s Crimson Ash.

Lara Kareem @ Female, Feminist, Feminine

I am 110% obsessed with the pastel, watercolor-ish, and floral aesthetic of Lara’s blog! Minimalist layouts are my absolute undoing, and Lara manages to pull of minimalism without taking away a calming, artistic vibe away from her layout. There are honestly no words for me to fully express just how much I adore the overall look of this blog, so check it out for yourself and maybe treat yourself to one of Lara’s wonderful reviews – this one is a review of Jennifer Niven’s Holding Up the Universe.

Zaheerah @ As told by Zaheerah

If you can look at Zaheerah’s blog and say that you don’t like its layout, then you are a terrible, terrible liar. Appreciating the aesthetics of her blog is an unspoken commandment, okay. The gold, white, and black tones are so beautiful and amazing and ugh, I just adore the overall minimalism. And oh my god, that header??? I am obsessed with it and am low-key tempted to steal it for myself. Absolutely perfect and lovely! 11/10, you should definitely check her out.

{ social media influencer }

Brittany @ Book Rambles

Participating in one of Brittany’s Twitter chats at least once is definitely one of the must-do experiences of every book blogger. I especially love that she manages the street team for Sarah Glenn Marsh called the Sparrow’s Watch, which I am a proud member of. Honestly, all Sarah’s books need to be hyped and worshipped. If you don’t believe me, maybe you should read Brittany’s review of Reign of the Fallen, which is Sarah’s most recent release. Make no mistake, though! Brittany is a friendly bubble of sunshine who wants to help all authors and bloggers alike!

{ best personality / friendliest member of the community }

Debby @ alwaysbooking

I cannot stress just how friendly Debby is! I mean, she has a weekly feature on her blog called “New Friend Friday” where she (not quite literally) sends heaps of love to different book bloggers. I was really honored, humbled, and just darn blushed out of gratitude when I was featured on her blog recently. Seriously, when she complimented my reviews, I nearly sobbed because of feelings and huhuhu, thank you omg aww. If that isn’t friendly, then I don’t know what is. (P.S. Debby, you are pretty spectacular yourself! I adore you.)

Cara @ The Little Miss Bookworm

Okay, seriously, I can’t not nominate my favorite girl, Cara. Aside from being the first book blogger friend I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet in real life, she has been nothing but a supportive ray of sunshine and a shoulder to lean on! I’ve totally lost count of the number of times I slid into Cara’s DMs just to rant about my blogging and in-real-life frustrations – and Cara is always willing to listen! Plus, have I mentioned that she braved a chaotic, arguably traumatizing book sale just to get me two of my most anticipated reads? (Cough, Love & Gelato and When Dimple Met Rishi, cough.) I have so much love for this girl that it is insane. Plus, she writes really terrific and insightful book reviews that will make you want to grab a copy immediately.


MOST IMPORTANTLY


{ best new book blogger }

Kate @ The Backwards Bookshelf

Call me biased (because I’m not denying it) but Kate is, without a shadow of doubt, a huge blessing to the book blogging community. Despite starting her blog just a short while ago, Kate has already found her own little niche: voicing out strong, much-needed opinions on hardly acknowledged realities like bookworm privileges and illuminating the spotlight on books that provide sorely needed representation. Although still new to the book blogging scene, Kate is fearlessly opinionated and vocal when it comes to what she believes in – and the fact that she prioritizes stories written by diverse, marginalized, #ownvoices authors? That’s just another manifestation of her principles in action. What I’m really trying to say is: I stan a woke book blogging queen, y’all. I have so much love, admiration, and respect for this girl! And I really can’t wait to watch her grow even more as a book blogger.

{ best overall book bloggers }

Flavia @ Flavia the Bibliophile

What I probably love the most about Flavia is her admirable, (slightly) envy-inducing flexibility when it comes to blogging. Although she has deemed herself to be quite the bibliophile, her blog includes a range of topics outside of books, including TV and film, travel, and beauty. Everything about her blog is so well put-together! From the organization of a variety of topics to the consistency of her blog’s branding – both of which require a keen eye for detail and tons of skill! Her layout is simple but simply breathtaking as well. I love the wide white spaces (because they make the overall appearance look very neat and clean) and the use of calming pastel shades. Even her instagram feed screams aesthetic. But seriously, everything Flavia posts is top quality content! I am always eager to read whatever she writes, be it a book review or a review of a beauty product.

Hollie @ hollieblog

Hollie writes about books, travel, and writing itself – and I am always interested in whatever she posts! Her discussions range from silly bookworm problems like the four star crisis to more pressing concerns such as queerbaiting. Her blog is also a great source of amazing book reviews and equally amazing book recommendations. I am a huge fan of her writing voice as well as her noticeable passion in just about everything she does!

Hazel @ Stay Bookish

Hazel excels in everything she does and makes it seem effortless. From starting her own bookish magazine to creating gorgeous blog designs to writing excellent book reviews, Hazel is practically the Wonder Woman of book blogging – and clearly, I’m not exaggerating at all. Brilliant, multitalented, and unparalleled in terms of creativity and vision, she’s my #1 Filipino book blogging icon!


And there you have it – my list of book blogger nominees! This is definitely one of my longer posts on the blog, but I certainly don’t regret raving and babbling about the awesomeness of every blogger I’ve mentioned!

Unfortunately, however, there are a number of awards I was unable to find nominees for, namely, Mystery and Thriller and Prettiest Bookshelf. To me, this is a clear indicator that I need to have more blogs on my WordPress reader. Seriously, after exploring all the blogs I follow, I noticed that nearly one-fourth of them were either inactive (from half a year to more than 2 years) or on blogging hiatus.

With that said, if you have any book bloggers you’d want me to check out (or maybe if you want me to check out your blog), then please comment them below, so I can follow all of you + send a wave of blogger-to-blogger love in your direction! Or at least, I’ll do my best to do so. I am particularly interested in diverse and #ownvoices book blogs, and in meeting other Filipino book bloggers! Actually, I think I need to follow more Asian book bloggers in general, to be honest.

Who would you nominate for the 2018 Book Blogger Awards? More importantly, would I be a part of your nominees list? (I am semi-kidding!) Seriously though, if you haven’t nominated blogs, then maybe you should consider doing so! It’s a ton of fun and a great way to let book bloggers know just how much you appreciate them!

Like this post? Then share it on social media platforms (see buttons at the bottom of this post!) or maybe consider sending a cup of coffee my way?

  1. Hello Shealea!! I’m so so happy to see this ❤ It warmed my heart so much that even though I've been away for a while you still enjoy my contents–and miss me!!! THANK YOU for the nominations, I'm flattered to be listed together with all of these amazing bloggers 😀 Anyway, I'm happy to announce that I'm back to blogging! Though probably won't be as active as before, but I'll try 😀

  2. This is such a lovely post to admire and appreciate the fellow blogger 🙂 And there are so many new blogs to follow for me.
    I can’t agree more about Evelina. She had done some incredibly good job for new bloggers. And Fanna is so sweet. She is a fellow Indian and we have almost same taste in books, so I always relate to her.
    And Marie? She is my absolute favorite 🙂 I never miss her posts. I love everything about her. And It would not be an exaggeration if I say that she is the most welcoming one and supportive 🙂
    And oh I totally forgot Aimee. her blog and designs are really aspiring. I don’t even know what I was even doing with my life when I was 18 😀

  5. WOW! This has made my day ❤ ❤ ❤ I can't thank you enough, Shelea! You've been one of my biggest inspirations and this isn't even something I'm saying just because you've nominated me. Like legit, there were just a few blogs I used to read before I started my own and yousr was one of them…not even kidding. Now I sound like a stalker because I'd never liked or commented on any of your posts (anxiety can be pretty hard) no matter how much I loved them. But now I work with you on blog tours and this is legit a dream come true 😀 Also, this was tough to say because now I'm all the more anxious about how you're gonna perceive this. Anyway, YOU'RE TOTALLY GOING IN MY OVERALL BEST BOOK BLOGGERS CATEGORY! ❤

    And I'm so happy with so many of your other nominations. Evelina!! I love her so much and seeing her blog being appreciated, and even she because she's one of the best people in this community, always brings a smile to my face. Marta writes some of the most amazing reviews and I always try to learn something from her precise, straightforward opinions. And need I say how much I love Marie! Her blog is absolutely perfect and she's such a good human and ugh, I love her. I admire Fadwa and Hazel so much! They both are those bloggers that you look from afar and keep admiring them and that's exactly what they are to me.

    Anyway, thank you so much, Shealea! ❤

      Honestly, and I’m not exaggerating, your blog was the first to come to mind when I thought about whom to nominate for that particular category. Your blog is definitely one of the most memorable ones I’ve ever encountered, and I’ve been around the blogging community for more than 2 years now! 😊

      I am a bit surprised but incredibly flattered that you think so highly of me. I haven’t been at my best when it comes to blogging for what feels like the longest time — I mean, I was hardly active at all in 2017, and I feared that I might not ever get over my blogging slump. But I’m doing what I can to manage my time better. Anyway, thank you very much for all the kind words! You made my day, too. 🌻❤️🌻❤️

      1. This just made me blush all the more, haha 😀 But I’m happy you appreciate my blog, it really means a lot.

        You’re doing a really good job when it comes to blogging and I guess sometimes a slump is understandable. Though, I’m surprised by this because each and every post of yours is so well put together that the times you don’t post is easily made up. So don’t worry, Shealea, you’ve a fan forever here ❤

    I also agree with you on many of these nominations, but I have to sat I agree the most about Fanna! Her blog style and just.. overall style. Such eye candy! So very admirable. Spot on nomination!!

    But you know, ONE thing about the New Bloggers initiative – I always wonder, do you think I will be forgotten when it's done? My post series is almost over now. There's only so much you can talk about when it comes to instructional posts xD I will never stop championing newbies and trying to help, but… you know, when your main angle is that you're NICE and have some helpful posts, you start to worry xD I feel like my blog will be taking some new directions soon, but I still don't know what they are 😀 I'd still like to support others and give them voice, the way I've been doing with #NewBloggers, but I haven't figured out a good way to do it yet 🙂 if you have any ideas, let me know!

    And thank you again! It's so sweet of you, I am soooo blushing right now 😀

Don’t even worry about where your blog is going or if you run out of instructional posts, because we’ll all be here to support you and your content no matter what! 😊 Plus, I am 110% confident that you’d come up with fresh batches of brilliant and innovative ideas. ❤️
