2020 Book Blogger Awards Nominations

Woah, who am I for actually being on track with something? I’m actually a little surprised because I procrastinate a lot so this is really scary. Also, my motivation has either been play sims or write a whole bunch of blog posts which is where I am at, when I’m writing this.

This year, both May @ Forever and Everly and Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books decided to team up and do the 4th Annual 2020 Blogger Awards! I’m so excited, because I get to talk about all these amazing bloggers I know & love and for once, I did not miss it! Last year I was in Cali so there’s that.

  4. Hallo, Hallo Lori,

    What a wonderful noms list!! I only saw one blogger I know of – which means I get to discover a whole lot of new bloggers!! I’ve included your post on my mini blogroll underneath my own list of noms as I wanted to help everyone find the posts!! Also, this is my first year participating and I love the community aspect of the experience. The book blogging community is such a kind one to become involved in whilst I like reading different perspectives on the books we’re all reading and discovering together.

    Perhaps we share some mutuals on my noms list?
