Ahem, *shuffles papers nervously* so I actually am a sentimental person. I mean I kept my secondary school books for 2 years, in case I wanted to look back on them later in life. Pfft I got rid of them a few weeks ago, cause it’s time to get rid of things I won’t use or need. BUT I want to say thank you to these book bloggers, who made my 2018 that little bit brighter.
I realised around September time, that I’d basically been on autopilot since late January (for reasons which are still ongoing, when it’s finished I may make a post explaining what happened etc.)
I turned 18 this year, which is great only I don’t feel any different, nothings changed. I got a year older, my future became a little less clearer to me. The near future that is, yet through this less than stellar year; blogging has been a constant more than my reading has.
Writing has remained my escape from reality and these people, unknowingly made this year easier to manage, knowing they were a keystroke away.
Disclaimer: this list is no particularly order, I may accidentally miss someone out but I love all these book bloggers
This list probably wouldn’t exist without you Evelina, back in 2017 you made a discord server for New Bloggers which I joined, thinking I didn’t have anything to lose. If I’d known back then, the crazy bunch of friends I’d end up making, I’d have done it without a moments hesitation.
So thank you for having the courage to create a discord server, not knowing if it’d even last a month. Thank you, for giving book bloggers a place to come together and for your endless love and support within the community.
We don’t talk a lot but I’m gonna keep living vicariously through you for the different hair colours Lauren haha. Also thank you for letting me guest post on your blog and helping me out with HTML ❤
Honestly fangirling over stationary and just about anything, is awesome with you Vee. I appreciate your patience with me too, since I’m crap at this buddy read thing
Your excitement for books, feeds my excitement which helps, considering I’ve been in a weird slump. But I love your insta stories and I ADORE…FREAKING ADORE YOUR BOOKSTAGRAM (it’s linked guys go check her out).
Also adore your blog posts *chuckles* oh and Charvi recently opened a bookish shop on instagram, link is here so be sure to check out her amazing artwork!
Your calligraphy skills have me in awe, also I love our collaboration posts and the fact we were able to do them to celebrate both our birthdays together. I need to remember to visit your blog more often cause it’s amazing.
You have my soul, which best be comfy in it’s jar, on the bean bag sipping a good cuppa! Our discord chats and DM’s amuse me greatly…wise dragon. You all want a Soph, cause she’s blunt with your graphics if they look crap she’ll tell you. It’s nice. Cause then I know what to do to make them better hehe.
Voice chats were A TIME phahaha. I just appreciate you Cam…and that ancient badge you gave me. I appreciate that too hehe. Oh and your blog, and content and the cute graphics and awesome posts.
I may gift you some stars as a Christmas present *snickers* but you won’t believe me so we’ll see. Adrian is precious and to be protected at all costs, just saying.
SISTER!!! For the record, Rain and I aren’t actually sisters, we erm just share many similarities and our friendship formed quickly like, one minute we didn’t know the other. The next, BAM, it’s like we’ve always known each other. Also eternally grateful for your friendship and the fact thanks to you we both won a giveaway *sobs gratefully*
Shameless plug here, we also co write Dragons Discuss together and when life stops being hectic for us we’ll get that back up and rolling.
My partner in crime. I think…yep I’m going for it.
First and last time me thinks, I’ll ever use a meme. Made by the one and only Sam, the rest of you won’t get it. But it means a lot to little ol’ me hehe. Also you keep me sane, cause planning events is pretty hectic.
*squishes in hug* I love you and your data loving self so so so much hehe. And the fact you’re scared of birds, means me being scared of chickens isn’t so weird. I also appreciate the work you put in for raising awareness, about International Bloggers reading accesses.
The Queen of Dragging Books. Your legacy shall live on Destiny haha, I hope in 2019 we‘ll get to know each other better!
Ruby Jo @ Ruby’s Books – for being enthusiastic with review sprints and just generally a lovely person to talk to on Discord!
Erin @ Blue Stocking Bookworm – thank you for stepping in and taking my host spot in Bookending Winter 2018. Also I’m loving your new graphics for your blog!
Amy @ Little Booknerd In The Corner – still the mum of the discord group Amy hehe. I can’t see cupcakes without thinking of you now, so your cupcake love lives on! Also thank you for joining in with Bookending Winter 2018 ❤
I may have missed a few but you guys all rock. I love all of these bloggers, both them as people and their blogs.
Honestly couldn’t imagine this year without them, cause as Kal and Cam will tell you. I can’t whisper….and when they’re making you laugh at 11pm it’s really hard to laugh silently. Trust me.
So bookbloggers, who are some fellow bloggers you appreciate? Any that made your 2018 that little bit brighter? I feel like these words don’t do these guys justice for how much I actually love them, and their presence. Anyhoo…how’s your 2018 been?
