Book Blogger Appreciation Week - Nomination

Well if you haven't noticed yet, there is always something going on in book blogger land, and I kind of like that! It builds a serious sense of camaraderie. Just this past weekend I was participating in Bloggiesta and at the end of July will be a new event, Got Books?, but this post is really about the forthcoming Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW) which is happening September 13th - 17th. It's a week long event where we celebrate all of the wonderful things book bloggers do. This will be my first year participating and I am really looking forward to it. Go check it out!

One of the big parts of BBAW is the awards which are given out to lots of deserving book bloggers in many categories. We have to nominate ourselves by showcasing the five posts that represent us the best in that particular category. I have some stiff competition but you can't win unless you try, so without further ado I would like to nominate myself for the following two awards:

Best New Book Blog—This blog was launched on or after September 1, 2009. The blogger has already made his or her mark in terms of the quality of the reviews, recommendations, analyses, and other content on the blog; it’s hard to imagine the book blogging world without this blogger.  [Note that nominated bloggers for this award are required to submit only 2 posts that are reviews, recommendations, or analyses of a specific title; 3 posts are left to their discretion.]
1. Review - 'American Wife' by Curtis Sittenfeld
2. Review - 'Love Rules' by Freya North 
3. Review - 'Martha Stewart's Hors D'Oueuvres Handbook' by Martha Stewart
4. Other - Armchair BEA: Writing Book Reviews That Reflect YOU!
5. Other - Historical Fiction with Kick-Butt Females

Best Written Book BlogThis blog is consistently well-written, clear, and engaging, no matter what the subject. [Note that nominated bloggers for this award are required to submit 3 reviews, recommendations, or analyses of a specific title; 2 are up to the nominated blogger.]
1. Review - 'American Wife' by Curtis Sittenfeld
2. Review - 'Love Rules' by Freya North 
3. Review - 'Lady Macbeth' by Susan Fraser King
4. Review - 'The Lacuna' by Barbara Kingslover
5. Other - My Top 5 Most Romantic Books

Fingers crossed and best of luck to everyone out there!


  1. You go girl!
    No mention of Wolf Hall?? Surely our read along deserves some award?!

  2. Oh yay! I'm so glad you decided to throw your hat in the ring! Good luck!

    I completely agree, all of these events are wonderful. Yeah, keeps me very very busy, but I love it that way! And I love all the wonderful people, like you, that I get to "hang" with.

  3. Good luck in your categories. I registered yesterday but didn't submit my blog for nominations. So I think that means I still get to vote?

  4. Here's hoping you end up on the lists for at least one of those categories so I can vote for you! :)

  5. Thank you everyone so much for all of your support! It really means a lot to me to know you are all rooting for me :)

  6. I'm so happy you are nominating yourself. All the best in both the categories.
