💘 Blogs to Love This Valentine’s Day 💘

Happy Valentine’s Day! To celebrate I decided to share some blogs I love with you 💘 Of course there are many more blogs that I love, some of which I’ve already talked about in my Merry Christmas Ya Beautiful Bloggers series in 2017, so it’s impossible to cover every blog I love in one post. There is no order to this list: every one of these bloggers is so lovely and deserves the world, starting with your follow if you don’t follow them yet 😜

Merry Christmas Ya Beautiful Bloggers Part I // Part II // Part III // Part IV

CW @ The Quiet Pond

The cutest blog?? The Quiet Pond is so much more than a book blog: it’s a magical world with the CUTEST inhabitants (I would die for all of them) and it’s so easy to get lost in. Say goodbye to whatever you had planned for today, you will be scrolling through The Quiet Pond.

All of CW’s post are so well-written and she’s a huge advocate for diverse books. There’s a good chance you’re TBR will be a lot bigger after visiting her blog.

Some of my favourite posts:
💛 Meet the Inhabitants of the Quiet Pond
💛 It’s a Corgi Christmas at Gen’s Art Garden!
💛 BLOG TOUR: The Weight Of Our Sky by Hanna Alkaf – A Malay Teen Searches For Her Mother During the Malaysian 1969 Riots (Book Review & Author Interview)
💛 The Pond Gets Loud: 8 Book Bloggers Share Their Experiences of Balancing Blogging and Life – Part I

Julianna @ Paper Blots 

Julianna already deserves all the love for making me want to read Ace of Shades (thank you!!) but obviously there are many more reasons why she deserves a shout-out. I just love her writing voice, the topics she comes up with for her posts and she always cracks me up.

Ilsa @ A Whisper of Ink

Ilsa recently got a new design which is so cute and colourful, but her ice cream linebreakers also make me very hungry* Ilsa is just so honest like when she exposed herself for saying she loved certain hyped books when she didn’t?? Iconic

* I just remembered I have ice cream in the freezer… hmm……..

Kat @ Novels and Waffles

You might want to avoid Kat’s blog if you’re hungry, because… LOOK AT IT. She takes her blog name very seriously which I respect. Her graphics are just so good and cute and unique and?? Speaking of graphics: she also recently started a new feature in which she interviews the artists behind book covers, giving these people the love they deserve.
