WHAT IS BOOK BLOGGER OF THE YEAR?This is the second time the London Book Fair has hosted the Book Blogger Awards. These awards, which also include Booktubers, Bookstagrammers and Book Podcasts, celebrate social media influencers across the book world.
I was lucky enough to attend the first Book Blogger of the Year ceremony, which took place last April. Seeing so many book bloggers gathered in one place, chatting and get to know each other, was truly inspiring.
YOU ENTERED THIS? FOR REAL?Yup! And I am equal parts terrified and excited.
This year, I am more determined than ever to get onto the shortlist. Not only would it make me incredibly happy, but it will also allow me to reach out to more book bloggers and bring this community together.
The book blogger directory will grow. I can feature more bloggers on the Book Blogger Binge. And I’ll be able to showcase more amazing books and authors!
However, to make the shortlist, I will I need your help.
