Bloggers who inspire me…

I’ve met so many bloggers since starting my blog in April 2012 and I’ve come to think of many of them as some of my best friends. I love nothing better than to log on to Twitter and have a good old natter because everyone is so nice and so kind, and they’ve welcomed me to their community even though they have never had to.

DISCLAIMER: I’m writing this post because I want to share some of my favourite blogs with you. Not all these people are close friends, and I don’t want people to get offended if I haven’t written about them. I love you all and I’ve probably forgotten loads of people. You’re all awesome!

1. Jamie from The Perpetual Pageturner

There’s something about Jamie’s blog that I simply adore. I love nothing more than to read through her posts and, even if I don’t comment on every single one, they all get me thinking and she has some of the best ideas for blog posts. Blog envy over here!

2. Ruby from Feed Me Books Now!!!

Have you seen the design of this blog?! It’s one of the best I’ve ever seen on any website and I really wish my blog was half as pretty. Ruby is also such a lovely, lovely person, and I may have to steal her blog design one day. Have I mentioned how much I love it?

3. Ashley from Nose Graze 

This is the one blog I check without fail and I read every single post. Not only is Ashley brilliant at writing blog posts, she’s also the person behind the Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin, which is a lifesaver. I don’t know how I survived before I bought the plugin! She’s an awesome web designer and I have serious blog envy again!

4. Rebecca from Rebecca-Books

I’ve always loved Rebecca’s blog and I can remember sitting at my computer one day reading all of her posts at once. I would consider Rebecca one of my closest blogging friends and I’ve loved getting to know her. Her blog is wonderful and every post is so special. She’s one of the bloggers I look up to and I think you should all go check out her blog if you haven’t already.

5. Stacey from prettybooks

I am so jealous of Stacey’s pictures. I’ve loved reading every single one of her A Tour of London Bookshops posts and it’s encouraging me to check out more of the bookshops local to me. Her WordPress blog and her Tumblr are so gorgeous and I’d want to marry her blogs if it was possible. It should be, shouldn’t it?

Do you have any favourite blogs?

    Ashley is amazing. I haven’t visited her blog very much (today was the first day I left a comment on it, actually), but I will have to visit it more often. Ruby’s design is pretty awesome. 🙂

    One of my favorite blogs is Nawanda Files. It has a cool design and I love the gifs they use. 🙂

    Aww Lucy! Thank you very much, I really appreciate it. It’s comments like these that make me realise how special book blogging is.
    I love all these other blogs as well, although I haven’t heard of Ashley’s blog – going to check that out now…
    Thank you again Lucy!
