Love-a-thon: spreading the love.

Book Blogger Love-A-Thon 2014
This is one of the things I love about the love-a-thon: spreading some bookish loves. I’ve tried to include as many of my favourite blogs as possible, but if you aren’t mentioned: you’re still awesome!

Best Blog Design.
I have several designs I really like. Fluttereal Flight has such a soft colour scheme. Hopeless Romantics features my favorite fairytale. The midnight garden has a gorgeous header. Papergrey always changes between gorgeous designs, I love grey. Paperiot, again, I love grey and simplistic designs. Gypsy reviews, I love the colours! The authoress simple and easy on the eyes.

Best Weekly Feature.
I really like Jessi’s  (Novel Heartbeat) feature ‘Life of a blogger.’ It’s fun to get to know bloggers on a more personal level. The career topic has been my favourite one so far.

Best Discussion Posts. 
I love reading discussion posts. There are several features I always follow and I can choose between them, so I will list them for you:
-The quiet concert: Thoughts for Thursday.
-The paper sea: Thought waves.
-Queen Ella Bee reads: Friday Coffee Clutch.
-Effortlessly reading: Let’s speculate.
-Snuggly Oranges: Book nerd problems.
-Tea between books: Let me talk.
-Aeropapers: Bookish verbosity.
-Oh Chrys often has thoughtful discussions.

Friendliest Blogger. 
Asti from A bookish heart. There is a sweet tone in all her posts and I found her adorable in the video’s she made for THG bookish games. Aylee from Recovering Potter addict also sounds like a very kind blogger.

Most Helpful Reviews.
Without a doubt, my blogging friend Christina over at Christina reads YA. I love her system and how she always seems to find the right words. I always find myself nodding alongside her review and she could have been the ‘friendliest blogger’ too. Her comments are the best and I also recommend her Bookish rounds! Sam from Realm of Fiction also manages to write beautiful reviews.

Favorite Bloggers To Fangirl With. 
If you follow Amber from Books of Amber on twitter, you know what I’m talking about. Amber is one of the best fangirls I know. I especially like talking about OUAT with her and some other girls & she is part of the Disney Journey club :D.

And these are the categories I’ve added:

Favorite come-back.

Kelly – Pretty little liar. Kelly was the blogger from Radiant Shadows and she is finally back with her brand-new blog! I’m very happy with her return.

Favorite new discovered blogger.
Ellis from The Random Transliterator.  I like her humoristic tone. And Potterhead reviews, because of the awesome blogging name. Utterly bookish, pretty design.

Best surveys.
Flip that page. I don’t know how Jasmine does it, but she always comes up with these creature surveys and I love filling them out. She even inspired me to make my own version, which will be up soon (fairy tale themed!)

Best blogger.
A reader of fictions. Christina is a perfect blogger! She manages to post so many well-thought reviews and I really like her cover snark. I’m always amazed by how many books she reads.

Best other bookish blog.
Recaptains. If you don’t have the time to re-read and you still want to know what happened in the previous book(s), this is the website you need to visit.

  10. Love this post! I have discovered some new blogs, and that is always awesome! I agree Sam's reviews are always so well written and Recaptains had pretty much saved me from re-reading a ton of books. :D

  11. The recaptains site is a SO HELPFUL. I use it all the time now. And I'm so glad Kelly made a return to blogging too. I adore her reviews. Thanks so much for the mention, Mel!

  12. Thank you so much, Mel! I'm very happy to be the best fangirl in your opinion. <3

    I love Jessi's Life of a Blogger feature, and would love to take part in that in the future. I agree, it's great to get to know bloggers more personally.

    Asti and Aylee are both lovely!

    YES to Kelly being the favourite come-back. I'm so glad she returned. And Ellis is brilliant, I love her.
