I’ve never been one for social media; I haven’t updated my Facebook in over a year, and I tried Instagram for about six months before giving up. For some reason this blog is the only kind of social media I can actually stick to. I was tagged by Kate at Reading Through Infinity. Thanks so much for the tag Kate, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

A blog with a design you love
May at Forever and Everly
There’s a lot about May’s blog I love, and while the design is only part of it she does have a gorgeous blog. The graphics are gorgeous, and the photos she uses incredible as well, but more than that it’s her posts. I think May has such a distinctive voice, and you can so clearly hear her passion for whatever she is talking about in her writing as well.
As well as having a gorgeous blog design May is incredible at promoting diverse books, she’s so friendly, and she’s probably the main person I’ll credit for getting me back into writing again.
A blog with a friendly blogger
Marie at Drizzle and Hurricane Books
Marie is so active in the blogging community I seriously wonder how she has the time to blog hop, comment, and still write amazing posts. Marie is one of the first bloggers I started talking to, and now nearly three years later she’s still one of the bloggers I talk to regularly. I always look forwards to seeing posts from her, and her comments never fail to make me smile.
As well as being an incredibly friendly blogger, and one of my favourite people in general, Marie is solely responsible for getting me back into the YA contemporary genre and adding about a hundred books to my TBR list.
A blogger who could just write 140 characters and you would still love them
The Orangutan Librarian is a blogger who posts about pretty much everything when it comes to books, and their mini-reviews are actually ‘mini’ which is something I still haven’t been able to master. I have no doubt they could write a 140-character review that would not only be coherent but would make me want to read the book in question ASAP.
Also The Orangutan Librarian is very active in the blogging community, and so friendly. Between the amount they comment and the amount they post I’m wondering how they have time for it all.
A blog that keeps you entertained
Kat at Life and Other Disasters
There is so much Kat talks about on her blog, and so much she has introduced me to as well. Her posts spotlighting TV shows and her round-up of newly-released trailers throughout the week have added so much to my to-watch list (which is starting to get longer than my to-read list), and I love learning more about her Arcadia WIP as well.
Kat is such a lovely person, and while May inspired me to start writing again it’s Kat and her original writing tags who inspires me to keep writing and working on my own WIP.
A blogger who’s updates you can’t wait for
.Lilly at Lair of Books
When it comes to YA fantasy there’s no one whose opinion I trust more than Lilly’s. Our taste in books is similar so whenever she posts a review I know it’s going to be another book I need to add to my TBR list. Her book hauls are also packed full of so many books that I both wonder where she finds the time to read them all and how many will end up on my to-read list when she posts her reviews.
Lilly is a wonderful person, I love seeing posts from her and the comments she leaves are always so bubbly and happy.
A blog which is very diverse and has variety
Lu at It’s Lu Again
There’s a pretty big focus on diversity at the moment and it’s something Lu’s spoken about a lot in some of her posts. Recently she’s done a ‘Coming-Out-Series’ which talks about upcoming LGBT releases you should definitely have on your TBR list and things we need to see more of in YA. Her latest review for Autoboyography had me desperate to pick up the book myself and see for myself what all the hype is about.
Lu is also a really enthusiastic and friendly person, there’s so much personality in her posts and her blog design is so pretty.
A blog which is full of creativity and inspiration
Sophie at Sophie’s Corner
Sophie is definitely an inspiration for me, mainly because in the time I’ve been working on my WIP she’s finished two and started a third one. I love her blog because as well as talking about books (she’s re-reading Harry Potter at the moment which is making me want to drop everything and pick up the series myself) she posts about her other hobbies. Who knew there was a life outside of blogging and WordPress?
Like everyone else I’ve featured I always love seeing comments from Sophie because she’s so genuine and friendly.
Kate tagged the bloggers she featured in her post for The Social Media Tag so I’m going to do the same for mine and tag the six amazing bloggers I’ve talked about in this post.
And as always if there’s anyone else out there who wants to take part consider yourself tagged. Just send me a link to your post in the comments so I can see what your answers are.
