I didn’t even know they had this, so I’m especially pleased to be hearing of it in time for nominations.
From the BBAW blog:
Book Blogger Appreciation Week is a week long festival celebrating the community of book bloggers and their contribution to preserving a culture of literacy through book reviews and recommendations, reading reflections, and general bookish chat. BBAW also includes an awards component. For more information on the BBAW 2010 Awards and how to participate, please visit the BBAW 2010 Awards Blog. BBAW events include daily blogging topics, blogger interview swaps, special guest posts, and so much more!
So in order to be nominated (in a Niche category, which is where WFF would fall), a book blogger must link to 3 reviews and 2 other posts written between August 2009 and June 2010 for consideration by the BBAW judges.
Looking back over the last year or so of blogging, I’m awfully proud of everything Waiting for Fairies has managed to do in that time frame. I hope the next 12 months are just as exciting. With that said, the following are the 5 posts I believe are “tops” from the past year.
My review of Rob Thurman’s Trick of the Light – which, sadly, the publisher has declined to pursue. So the September release will be the last in this series.
The massive, Waiting for Fairies Holiday Gift-Buying Guide. (And I still recommend books as the perfect gift!)
My favorite post from my birthday celebration, the Kiaras Festivus Author Focus post on Rob Thurman. (I tried, I really did, to find something different than another Rob Thurman post – but I believe this one is the best written out of that series of posts.)
Probably my favorite review ever – for Robin Becker’s Zombie-tarian novel Brains: A Zombie Memoir.
And, finally, the review for the 2nd volume of my newest favorite vampire series: Jaye Well’s Mage in Black.
Book Blogger Appreciation Week this year will be held from September 13th – 17th. I hope you’ll all look up your favorite book blogger that week and tell ’em how much you appreciate them.
