As today's BBAW post, we have been asked to write about blogs that are personal favorites that weren't included on the BBAW Awards shortlists. Although many that I love were shortlisted in at least one category, I still have quite a few others to mention so bear with me while I give some love to a dozen blogs that I think you need to go check out.
Robin's blog, A Fondness For Reading, is sweet and she reads a great variety of books. Her mother writes guest posts and she has an adorable grandson! She always has a great header picture too.
Booklogged at A Reader's Journal has a good variety of novels and she also is a great commenter.
Aarti writes with energy and a big sense of community at Booklust. She has a unique regular feature in Rosie's Riveters.
J.S. Peyton at BiblioAddict has very thoughtful posts and some great reads.
Tara's site, Books and Cooks, is a fun mix of family and books. She has beautiful weekly produce pictures too!
Juxtabook also has a great variety of books and she's a kind commenter!
Lost in Books, Rebecca's brainchild, is an awesome site for a wide variety of reviews, memes and community building posts. She is sweet and chatty and has a really fun site.
Rob of Rob Around Books takes his reading and blogging seriously! I love his bookshelves of the week feature and he also writes a reading journal that is a really unique feature. He's also got one of the best looking sites around.
I only discovered Rose City Reader recently but she chooses some great books and writes really thoughtful posts. She's also an awesome person!
Save Ophelia is a year-old blog written by Lena. Even if she wasn't so adorable, I would still visit her site for the book choices and fun interests.
Scattie at The Scruffy Bookshelf is a really new blogger so you should all head over and support her site. She reads a healthy variety of books and she's also a great commenter!
Finally, here's a shout-out to Tif at Tif Talks Books. She is perky and positive and reviews all ages of books. She's always willing to join a conversation and she's a fantastic member of the community.
And congratulations to those of my favorites that have been nominated for awards! I love all of you too!
