BBAWkward Nomination

This year celebrates the third year that the Book Blogger Appreciation Week has taken place, and the second year I have been involved. It's a great way in which we can celebrate the community as a whole and one another. Held from the 13th of September until the 17th, BBAW allows for increased interaction and the discovery of talented bloggers you might formerly have been unaware

This year, everyone is invited to register their blogs for the week and also to nominated themselves in the award categories for the week. Basically you need to choose a niche category that best represents your blog. You do this by selecting five posts that represent the breadth of your blogging throughout the year.

For Best Young Adult Book Blog:
Review: Grace by Elizabeth Scott
Review: The Secret Year by Jennifer R. Hubbard
Review: Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
Discussion Post - Team Gale: A Shipper's Defence
Discussion Post - Reviews - Cruel, Bland and Everything In Between

Best Interviews:
Interview: Richelle Mead
Interview: Liz Tigelaar
Interview: Melina Marchetta
Interview: Sarah Dessen
Interview: Lisa Ann Sandell

Thanks! I look forward to seeing what posts other bloggers put forward as their nominations.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love the title! :) I know it's a bit awkward, but hopefully it will help everyone discover each other a bit better and also feel a bit better about the awards.

I also love the title as it was exactly how I felt when posting my BBAW registration. As a new blogger I felt downright disrespectful to more established members of the community but it just seems like such a good way to get to know who is out there so much better. Great choice of posts and thanks for easing some of awkwardness....

I know I only have two days left to do it, but I have really struggled with this self nomination thing! BBAWkward says it all for me.

My fave is your Team Gale post. So awesome. I'm Gale all the way, and you so eloquently say why :) (in fact, before getting into reading blogs, it never even occurred to me to even consider Peeta?) I think I'll have to post a link to it on my blog - if you dont mind (save it up for a pre-mockingjay post - fingers crossed for gale!!!)...

Good luck! in your nominations :)
