Thank you!

On  Saturday I discovered that I’d been shortlisted for five awards for the UKYA Blogger Awards. There were only ten categories, so to be shortlisted for five, made me feel rather overwhelmed and humbled. I am astounded that publicists, publishers and authors took the time to vote for me and I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
This is a big thing for book bloggers. We have worked passionately for a long time, sharing our love of books especially YA and MG books in particular. So to realise that our efforts have not gone unnoticed, gives us an immense feeling of happiness and acceptance.
I am over the moon to be voted for alongside so many of my dear blogging friends. These are the people who have stood beside me for many years, sharing their love of books. We have become friends and I can’t imagine my life without them. With so many book bloggers shortlisted in these categories, I would be happy for anyone to win. We all deserve it. To the bloggers who weren’t voted for, I can assure you that it doesn’t mean you have gone unnoticed. We as a community, support all book bloggers and commend each and everyone one of you who takes the time to write reviews and share your love of books.
I also want to give a big thank you to KM Lockwood, Liss Norton, Elizabeth Dale, Sophie Duffy and Caroline Hodges and Jill Atkins for reviewing books for me over the last few years. I honestly couldn't keep up with the reviews if it wasn't for you all helping out.
I shall be attending the event at Waterstones on the High Street, in Kensington at 7pm on Saturday the 7th March. If you would like to join us, tickets are still available here.
There is also still time to vote for the blogger’s Blogger Award, which you can do by clicking below.
I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible  and raising a glass of something bubbly to the awesome book blogging community.
