I love my social media platforms, but I’ve never done this tag before, so I was excited when the wonderful Bex @myshelfandmyself tagged me to do it. Thanks Bex!

INSTAGRAM- A BLOG WITH A DESIGN YOU LOVE
I absolutely adore CW @ReadThinkPonder‘s blog design! Her colour scheme is so warm and inviting, and she creates all her own artwork. She made her blog header guys, it’s super cute. Plus, her review layouts are just so clean and easy to read. You should definitely check her out on Twitter and IG too, as she’s begun posting more of her artwork on both platforms.
FACEBOOK- A BLOG WITH A FRIENDLY BLOGGER
Beth @ReadingThroughtheNight is one of the friendliest bloggers I know! She’s happy to talk about almost anything bookish, and is always promoting good books. Even if she hasn’t read the book or series she’s still happy to listen to you rant about how great it is, and will often end up adding it to her TBR. She also leaves such thoughtful and in-depth comments on your posts (even the long ones) that you can tell she’s read the entire thing!
TWITTER- A BLOGGER WHO COULD JUST WRITE 140 CHARACTERS AND YOU WOULD STILL LOVE THEM
My queen Hollie @HollieBlog could write a 140 character review and I’d still read it and love it. She could unfollow me and I’d still love her because she’s passionate, honest, and witty. Her book reviews are enthusiastic and salty in wonderfully equal measures, and she’s a brilliant advocate and promoter of LGBTQIA+ fiction. Her personal posts are equally as good as her bookish ones, because discusses mental health candidly and isn’t afraid to discuss negative things. This last point is incredibly important to me, because we all want to live our best (bookish) lives, and often that means filtering out bad things that occur, but Hollie discusses these openly and I have nothing but admiration and respect for her for doing that.
(Wow, this turned into a love-fest, and I’m not sorry.)
YOUTUBE- A BLOG THAT KEEPS YOU ENTERTAINED
Cait @PaperFury never fails to make me laugh. Her posts manage to reflect our inner fangirls and remind us that it’s OK to be unashamedly enthusiastic about a book; just because you’re a ‘serious blogger’ doesn’t mean you always have to write in a serious style. You can overload on capslock and drop gifs in everywhere. Cait’s posts are so entertaining because she’s just being herself and having fun.
SNAP CHAT- A BLOGGER WHO’S UPDATES YOU CAN’T WAIT FOR
I’m always really excited when I see that Gretchen @ChicNerdReads has a new post up, because she often shares her poetry and it’s so good. (I’d definitely recommend going and reading a few of her poems.) Her reviews are also really fun and her writing style is so easy-going that I could read her posts all day.
TUMBLR- A BLOG WHICH IS VERY DIVERSE AND HAS VARIETY
If you’re looking for a blogger who promotes diversity of both genre and representation, then I’d highly recommend checking out Aimal @BookshelvesandPaperbacks. She has a brilliant post about diversity and activism in the book community that I can’t urge you to read enough.
PINTEREST- A BLOG WHICH IS FULL OF CREATIVITY AND INSPIRATION
Aentee @ReadAtMidnight creates such exciting and original content that I’m always happy to see a new post from her in my feed! Currently, she’s organising The Reading Quest – an interactive reading challenge that let’s you create your own character and earn HP points with every book read. If you’ve not already you should definitely check it out!
I’m going to tag the six lovely bloggers that I’ve gushed about above, if they’d like to do it! And if you’re reading this and fancy doing it too, then consider yourself tagged!
