Yesterday I posted a list of nine fellow book bloggers who have become or continued to be amazing friends to me in 2019, and today I have nine more!
Once again, there are so many I could mention here as this is just such a magnificent community to be a part of. I am exceedingly grateful for all of you on my blog, and on Twitter.
So here are the rest, once again in alphabetical order:
Noly @ The Artsy Reader
Noly is simply one of the loveliest, kindest, and most genuinely fantastic people I have been lucky enough to have made friends with through social media. For me, she epitomises the book blogging community, and the support that exists within it.
I always enjoy reading her posts, too. We may gravitate towards different genres in terms of reading, but Noly writes in an absorbing way that makes me want to check out any book she gives a positive review.

Noriko @ Diary Of A Bookfiend
Noriko was one of the first friends I made after I started book blogging, and she is undoubtedly one of the best. Her reviews are always interesting and eloquent, not to mention brilliant to read! I think some of her writing has inspired me with my own blog.
I really enjoy discussing books with Noriko, you can sense her enthusiasm and passion for reading in every word she writes.
A great post by Noriko: Audiobook Review: Liar by K.L. Slater
NS Ford @ NS Ford
I sometimes find it difficult to come up with a wide range of interesting blog post ideas, but NS Ford is full of innovation! Beyond book reviews, she publishes a range of posts such as looking back at her reads from years ago, film adaptation reviews, and clever poems.
I always enjoy reading her blog for this very reason, and I appreciate the support she gives to my posts as well. As a writer herself, it means a lot when she gives my reviews positive feedback.

Pauliina @ The Bookaholic Dreamer
When I first read one of Pauliina’s blog posts, I immediately loved her style. She takes part in lots of great reading challenges, and her wrap-ups are full of detailed statistics which make them even more engaging.
We share a love of historical fiction, and in the summer we buddy read The Familiars by Stacey Halls, where she gave some wonderful insights. Her PhD research is fascinating, too!

Rumaanah @ Rums The Reader
I absolutely adore reading Rumaanah’s reviews and always look forward to them! She writes in a very descriptive and beautiful way that often captures the magic of a book.
Even better, we have a very similar taste in books, so whenever I read a glowing review from Rumaanah, it means an instant addition to my TBR! Very soon we are planning to a buddy read, which I’m really looking forward to.

Shalini @ Shalini’s Books And Reviews
Shalini’s reviews are often as compelling to read as the very books they describe, and she has perhaps contributed more to my TBR than anybody else. It seems that every day, she brings us another great review.
She gets through so many books, but also finds the time to read lots of blog posts. I am extremely grateful for Shalini, as she is very supportive and definitely a source of inspiration for how I blog.
A great post by Shalini: Book Review – Gone by Leona Deakin
Shaz @ Shaz Reads
Shaz is totally one of the nicest book bloggers I know, and another with an excellent style of writing.
We have connected thanks to our mutual love of Harry Potter, and I have enjoyed doing the tags that she has nominated me for!

Sofii @ A Book. A Thought
I cannot speak highly enough of Sofii; each of her posts are wonderfully written and richly detailed, coming straight from the heart. I truly adore reading them.
But above all, Sofii is the loveliest person. It is an absolute joy to talk to her, she can brighten up your day with a really nice comment. Also I must mention her blog aesthetic, I love it.

Syl @ Syl Reads
Syl is another fantastic bookish friend whose posts I always look forward to. I really like her reviews, where she combines a very intelligent and articulate style of writing with a effective way of conveying her own opinions.
As a librarian, she offers great insights and has a lot of interesting things to say about various topics relating to books. And just like everyone else in this post, she is full of kindness.
A great post by Syl: Review: The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic
I cannot end this post without mentioning Gem, who is my online BFF. We connected back in 2017 and I am so unbelievably thankful for that, as we get along so well. We are currently on our third buddy read of 2019, and sixth overall.
Happy reading 🙂
