Bookish Academy Awards 2018

Hey everybody! We hope you are all doing well this week. We just got back from our super relaxing (and much needed) spring break and now we are jumping back into regular life (why? why does it have to be this way?)! Anyways, a few days ago one of our favorite Booktubers, PeruseProject, posted her Bookish Academy Awards tag video that she posts every year. The tag was originally created by BOOKadoodles and it reminded us to do this post again this year. We LOVED doing it so much last year, that we just have to give it another try. Again, just like last year’s post, we are going to do this tag by only picking from books that we read in 2017 . If we don’t have something that fits a category we will just leave it out and we are going to try and never use any book more than once! Here we go….

  1. This is such a FUN post! I may have to do this one for my 2017 reads too! Oh, Audrey would definitely be one of my nominees for best female protagonist too. I might also put her up against Starr from THUG and Emika from Warcross. Words in Deep Blue is a wonderful stand-alone too!

    1. YAY we’re glad you liked it! And YESSS you definitely have to do it and let us know so we can see your answers! Audrey is such a strong, intelligent, and independent feminist protagonist … LOVE her. Those sound like another two great contenders though. It was a beautiful stand alone, which seem so rare. It is always nice to get a great stand alone 🙂

      hahaha that is ALWAYS how we feel when we read tags, that the other person’s answers are just way better than anything we could ever come up with lol

      We’re sure you’ll come up with some amazing answers though!


    1. YAY we’re glad that you like it 🙂

      We LOVED Stalking Jack the Ripper and Audrey and Thomas and we are SO excited to read the next two in the series; we’re sure they are going to be EPIC!

      And thank you so much for tagging us! How exciting! We will get to it ASAP 🙂
