TTT: Bloggers I am Thankful To

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish that now has a new home at That Artsy Reader Girl.

The holiday season is upon us here in the USA, so Happy Thanksgiving everybody. While we all have a lot of things to be thankful for this year, I would like to take this moment to thank some wonderful bloggers who have become a very important part of my life and I’m so glad I got the opportunity to connect with them through this community.

Nandini is probably the one I would consider my closest blogging friend and I am so happy that I got to know her. She is the creator of Book Dragons India group which has helped me make some lifelong friendships, the creator of Stars and Sorcery Book Club where we all love reading and talking about our favorite books by Authors of Color, and essentially the mom of our group – she is always there to help us out and give sage advice whenever we need it. This year wouldn’t have been the same without your constant support Dini.

I only met Ahana in our discord group a few months ago but she has quickly become the number one supporter of my blog and I can’t say in words how thankful I am for the absolutely lovely comments she leaves on every post. She is full of love and joy and definitely the greatest motivator I have who makes me wanna keep going.

Shruti is the one I love to turn to when I have something to rant about and I’m so thankful that she is such a great listener. Her wonderful sense of humor has brought me out of many a dark moods and I hope we will continue to remain great friends despite having very few books in common 😉

Dany maybe quite young in age but she is very wise and I cherish our everyday late night conversations on every topic under the sun. And she is one of those readers who is faster than me and reads new books even before I do (what a surprise that was), so it’s always an absolute joy to discuss all our favorites and likes and dislikes. She also happens to be our resident Edelweiss expert, so I treasure all the advise she tries to give me to improve my chances of getting approved for ARCs.

bookathon

Krisha gives the best book recommendations ever and I will forever be thankful to her for introducing me to some of my newly found favorite authors, and also for always encouraging me to try new stuff. I have come to implicity trust whatever she has to say about books and it’s always a joy trying to compare notes on our favorites.

I may not know Shri very well but her discussion posts are some of the most thoughtful and hard hitting ones I have ever read across the community, and I am so thankful that she devotes her valuable time to write them and makes us all think and reflect on our experiences.

Caitlin is another newbie blogger but you will never feel that by reading her posts because she writes some of the most wonderful and fun book reviews and discussion posts and she is a joy to engage with, and inspiration to want to be better.

words gremlin

Meaghan writes some of the most thoughful reviews ever and her recommendations are always wonderful, and I am very thankful that I get to read her words everyday. The only trouble is that she has well succeeded in exponentially increasing my TBR and I have no clue when I will ever catch up.

Blogger Books

Jane is someone who always has kind words to say on every post of mine and chatting with her is like a boost of energy and I’m very thankful that I get to discuss so many bookish things with her every single day.

I will forever be thankful to Samantha because she is the first booktuber I ever followed and she is someone who motivated me to keep on with my blog even though I had no followers, and find my own gang in this vast community. Also, her recommendations are just the best.

And finally, I am extremely thankful to the bookish community – all the bloggers, reviewers, bookstagrammers, booktubers and authors – who create such brilliant content and connect all of us who live in far corners of the world through the power of the written word. Thank you for making me a better reader and most importantly, a better person.

  1. SAHI. YOU ARE SO SWEET 😭😭 I didn’t expect to be listed in this list, because I feel like we don’t talk as much as we should, but I’m so glad that you thought of me nonetheless!! I’m very grateful for you too ❤ I love how genuine your comments are, and your reviews are stellar. Thanks for saying all those kind things about me. I'll forever be crying about this 💕💕
    I'm so glad that I already follow some of these bloggers! Shri's discussion points are so golden, and I love her writing voice. Also, you like Thoughts on Tomes too?! I can't believe that I'm not the only one subscribed to her! It's weird that she's not mentioned as much when she has a pretty good following. She just has such a chill voice, and I love her taste in fantasy!! I always go to her for fantasy rec! Plus, I feel like my taste in romance perfectly aligns with hers ❤

    1. Caitlin !!! I know we don’t talk enough but I absolutely love reading your reviews and I had to mention you… Reviews are my favorite part of blogging and the way you analyze books and write about them is just beautiful 💕💕💕 So thank you for all that you do !!!
      OMG another Thoughts on Tomes fan !! What a lovely coincidence 🙌🙌 She was the first ever booktuber I followed and this was before my blog.. so she really was my first intro to this community.. And her taste in fantasy is impeccable… She introduced me to the Grishaverse and I can never forget that 😍😍😍 And after I started blogging, who do I see at the first book event I ever attended.. Sam 😳😳 It was such a surprise and she was very busy, but I managed to get a picture with her and I cherish that memory so much 🥰🥰

      1. AHH, the fact that you think that about my reviewing skills means so much to me :(( I feel like my style of reviewing has changed, so the fact that someone still likes it makes my heart really happy ❤ ❤
        Sam is SO dedicated to her fave books!! Also, it's so awesome that you got to meet her! I can't imagine meeting my favorite booktubers in the flesh because #intlreaderproblems lmao, but I'm so so happy that you got to! She must've been amazing ❤

  2. SAHI. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

    You were the first friend I made on BDI. I just immediately connected with you and you were (and still are) always there for me, never getting impatient with my (still) never ending questions. You’re kind and thoughtful and lovely and despite what a big blogger (and busy one) you are you ALWAYS stop by my little blog and comment and support. You tag me 😭😭😭 (I have questions about this that I’m going to spam-ask you about btw) and it makes me feel so loved. You think about me, you let me tweet at you and you always make me smile. It’s a good thing you live so far away, or I’d have smothered the smithereens out of you. ♥️♥️♥️♥️

    You deserve all the support. Thank you so much for being my friend Sahi ♥️
