But I am stoked to congratulate Susan of The Insatiable Booksluts, my book blog crush, and her blogmates for winning the Goodreads.com Independent Book Blogger Award!
~**Throw the confetti and streamers if you got'em!!**~
Not only do they win a cool award, which is awesome in and of itself, but Susan gets a free ride to NYC for BEA (air fare, hotel, BEA and BBC pass all included). I think she even accepts her award at the Book Blogger Convention. Holy moly right??
How did TNBBC do, you ask? Well, we made it into the finals - one of 60 finalists from a combination of 4 categories (one of 14 in the Adult Fiction category.. whoot whoot!) out the hundreds and hundreds that entered! That's nothing to sit in the corner and cry about, am I right?
And we never would have made it that far if it wasn't for everyone who went out and voted for us! So thank you! Truly. Your support means the world to me, and it let's me know we've got something here that people want more of. If I could reach through the computer screen, I would give you all a great big hug (greasy cheek be damned!) (inside joke... ). But since I can't, please except this post as a virtual one instead!!
You couldn't have gotten a better winner in the Adult Fiction category, to be honest. Susan and her team take blogging to the level I wish TNBBC could be at. Their energy, insight, incredible honesty, and healthy dose of cursing is something we should all strive to achieve when blogging. And did you know they aren't even a year old yet? Holy moly again!!
Show them the love by stopping by their blog or tweeting a big ole congrats to them!
Congrats to the winners of the other categories too:
Adult Non-Fiction: Sophisticated Dorkiness
Children's/Young Adult: The Nerdy Book Club
Publishing Industry News: Writer Beware Blogs!
