The Mystery Blogger Award celebrates discovering new blogs and inspiring posts and isn’t that such a lovely idea?

In the creator’s own words; “The Mystery Blogger Award is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.”

And the Award Goes To: Reading by Starlight 2019 Book Awards

As of today there are only four days left of the year 2019. In fact, there are only four days left of the entire decade itself. I’m going to give you all a second to process that.

Having allowed it to fully sink in, feel old yet? I do.

Anyway, evident existential crisis aside, the end of the year means it’s time to share our favorite books and I’m shaking things up a little. This year I’ve got new categories – yay! So let’s roll out the red carpet and celebrate the best books of 2019.

The Mystery Blogger Award

How excited are you guys for the weekend? I know I’ve been holding out for a lazy day – I have so much house work and blogging to catch up on plus I can’t wait to get in some serious reading [my TBR pile is actually borderline ridiculous] and a little self care.

First thing’s first – I want to send some love Siobhan’s way for nominating my little blog for the Mystery Blogger Award. Siobhan is one of my dearest friends in the community so be sure to check out her reviews and fantastic discussions over at Siobhan’s Novelties.

Before I get into the tag, just what is the Mystery Blogger Award? Let me tell you – this is such a beautiful idea for a blog award! This award celebrates discovering new blogs and inspiring posts and nothing is better than showing off my bookish friend’s stunning blogs because each of them works so hard.

In the creator’s own words; “The Mystery Blogger Award is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.”

The Liebster Award

Reading By Starlight Award Banner (2).png

Image result for liebster awardIf you’d read my recent February Wrap Up, you’d know that It’s been a while since I’ve actually finished a book. I’ve been meandering through A Discovery of Witches not because I’m bored but because I actually don’t want it to end. Then I picked up After, another 500+ page book because I seriously have no chill. I promise, more reviews are on the way soon but, in the mean time, it’s about time that I do the Liebster Award.

Firstly, because I get into the Award questions, I have to send a big shout out and a huge thank you to the lovely Claire over at Cup of Books. Thanks so much for the tag, Claire and I’m sorry it took me so long to get around to answering your questions.
