The Book Awards 2015

What are The Book Awards?

The Book Awards are like the Oscars or any other award show, but for books! This coming month you will be able to nominate books, characters, etc. Those with the most nominations (so if you’ve noticed that you’re favourite book has already been nominated, do nominate again!) will go to the next round: the voting. The voting will go on for a longer time period, for how long I’m not sure yet. During this period I will (with the help of possible guest bloggers) promote all the nominees and tell you why you should vote for them. By the end of it all, the winners will be announced! There may or may not be any challenges along the way, I’m not too sure yet, but it does seem like a fun idea.

How does it work?

In this post I will list all the categories and in the comments you will be able to tell me which book, author, character, etc. should be nominated. Like I said before, do nominate something that has already been nominated, as those with the most nominations will go on to the next round. You can nominate more than one book etc. for a category of course! But you are only able to nominate once (what I mean is that you can’t for example nominate Harry Potter twice- unless you’re nominating both the book and the character).

Can I write a guest post?

Of course! After the nomination period is over, I will list all the nominees and tell you guys more about the guest blogging bit.

If you have any more questions, let me know in the comments!

There are quite a lot of categories, because I didn’t want to leave too many books out, but if a category doesn’t get enough nominees (at least three), I won’t go through with it. And if I forgot a category that you think is a must, let me know! Now get nominating! :D Also, share this post with your fellow bookworms! Tweet it, reblog it, pin it, mail it… Let’s make this a fun event for book lovers around the world :)

#TBT – Best Books of 2014

I have read 48 books this year (not counting rereads). To some of you that may not be a lot, but I haven’t read this many books in a year since I started secondary school, so I’m really proud. 48 books, but which ten are the best? A particular order will be really difficult, so in no particular order we have:

The Perks of Being A Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky

I said no particular order, but this book is the best book I read this year. From now on, there really will be no particular order.

The Book Thief – Markus Zusak

The School for Good and Evil – Soman Chainani

Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor and Park – Rainbow Rowell

The Fault in Our Stars – John Green

The Picture of Dorian Gray – Oscar Wilde

Anna and the French Kiss – Stephenie Perkins

Blood of Olympus – Rick Riordan

The Infernal Devices – Cassandra Clare

Cheating, I know, I know. I just can’t decide which one out of these is the best. Again, hopefully my review for Clockwork Princess will be up this week.
