Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature run by the wonderful bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish and this week, it is my first time participating so here goes! For more information regarding Top Ten Tuesday, please check out The Broke and the Bookish blog – they are amazing.
Christ on a bike and all the love in the world to all the cuddly baby pandas. It’s been absolute ages since I did a TTT post. Mother of God, I feel horrible. But don’t worry, I am back this week with a list of bookish people that you need to follow on social media. Like, really. If you’re not following them, please do. Like, IMMEDIATELY AFTER you read this post.
Before I move on, allow me to shamelessly plug my newly started Instagram account (no, seriously, I started “Bookstagramming”. Like, for reals, yo). It’s relatively new, so I guess if you like bookish photos and don’t mind my horrible photography skills, you could follow me! (@bookevin_) Oh, and I tweet as well, so yes, you can find me throwing sparkly things at people and tweeting gifs (@Bookevin_).
Here goes! First one on the list is none other than the amazing and totally loveable, Alexa Santiago from Alexa Loves Books! She’s the sweetheart who introduced me to the wonders of Sarah J. Maas’s books and she even sent me a copy of The Assassin’s Blade. For that, I am incredibly grateful. Her enthusiasm for books knows no bounds and she’s such a star.
Next up, it’s Jess from Jess Hearts Books and she’s one of my oldest Twitter buddies. We met each other on Twitter back in 2011, I think and she has always been my go-to person when it comes to YA. So please please please say hi to her. She’s just all kinds of wonderful, I promise.
Joey from Thoughts and Afterthoughts is like the cool guy of blogging. His enthusiasm is everything and his reviews are just amazing — well, his review format is nothing I’ve ever seen before and that makes him awesome. Please do check him out. He’s one of the nicest guys I know online. If you need book recommendations, he’s the one you should look for. And check out his reviews, yo. They rock.
Lola blogs on Hit or Miss Books and she is HUGE on Goodreads because she’s just simply amazing. I aspire to become like her because the one thing I love most about her reviews is her honesty. And we have similar tastes in books so I can really trust her when it comes to getting books! And she’s recently started Booktubing so you can see how adorable she is when she’s fangirling over books!
Next up is Liam from Liam’s Library! Hailing from Down Under, this dude knows his YA, I tell you. We connected over our love for most of the books we’ve read and I do enjoy reading his reviews! He has really interesting posts too, like underrated books and unpopular opinions that I do have to agree sometimes! If I need a bookish fanboy to gush about books with, he’s the one I’d go to.
I met Aila from Twitter and we’ve even made it to Snapchat (which is the dorkiest app every and I love it). I have a serious case of blog design envy when it comes to her blog, One Way or An Author. If you didn’t get the pun, you need to seek for penance by getting me a book. Back to Aila, seriously, if you’ve not seen her blog, please do, and when you do, you can wallow in sadness with me because it’s glorious.
I am a part of this amazing bookish group and they are called the Malaysian Bibliomaniacs (MyBBM) and they are just all kinds of awesome. There are over 70 members in the group and all we do is talk about books, meet up to go book shopping, support each other’s bookish platform and ultimately, share the love of books. Do check them out on Twitter (@MYbibliomaniacs) because I love them!
Justine from the Philippines is another passionate book blogger that I aspire to be like. His enthusiasm for books is just unparallel and I love reading his blog, Bookwormaniac. And he takes really good photos on his Instagram. (Not jealous at all) And he’s only 16. Y’all kids today are so advanced.
Aentee from Read at Midnight is one of the most talented people I’ve met (online) because her graphics and artwork are stunning. Again, not jealous. I love her blog because her reviews are really well-written, and often, they are accompanied by cool, kick ass graphics. My personal favourite has to be her Throne of Glass ones which look amazing as my phone’s wallpaper. Hope you don’t mind, Aentee!
Last but not least, I discovered this blog when I was being nosy online and I was checking out other bloggers and I found Lakshaan and his girlfriend, Trang’s blog, Bookidote. They are like, the bookish power couple. I can remember the first review I read of theirs and it was Sixof Crows – after reading it, I finally got the book!
So that’s all I have for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday! Thank you so much for stopping by, you awesome book nerds. I love you all.
