Year of the Bookwormz: 2011

52 weeks. 2 friends. 1 challenge.

Gearing up for Book Blogger Appreciation Week June 16, 2010

September 13-17th is National Book Blogger Appreciation Week and Year of the Bookwormz2010 is entered in the running for 2010 Best Eclectic and Best Written Book Blog!

We look to our readers, fellow book bloggers and favorite authors for suggestions and ideas. Many of our readers turn to us before loading up their library queue. What better time to appreciate your favorite book blogs than during the Book Blogger Appreciation Week coming this fall, especially if a book blog helped you discover some of your favorite reads!

We were asked to select 5 blog posts in each category that best represent our voice here at Year of the Bookwormz. This blog is not only unique in that we review ALL genres of books, but it’s jointly managed by both of us so the only way to fairly participate is to enter one category each. So thanks to our loyal fans, below are links to our most popular and/or most commented posts that we selected as entries. Thanks so much for making this blog a success and for all  your enthusiasm so far!

Entries for Best Written Category

1) Book #7: Fabookulous

2) Book #10: Fabookulous

3) Author Spotlight: Laura Bush

4) Book #17: Fabookulous

5) Book #20: Fabookulous

Entries for Most Eclectic Category

1) When World’s Collide: Sue Monk Kidd & Jenna Lamia

2) Book #26 LibraryLove

3) Book #24 LibraryLove

4) Author Spotlight: Garth Stein Author Event

5) Book #18 LibraryLove

As an added bonus, each blog entered in Book Blogger Appreciation Week is asked to select 1 work of fiction (wish we could pick 5!) as their favorite.

We selected Beth Hoffman’s best selling novel, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, as our 2010’s Best Fiction. Reviews of her novel here at YOTBWZ received the most blog hits and searches of all, AND she was kind enough to allow us to host a CeeCee Giveaway! Good luck Beth, we hope you win! we’ll also let you know closer to the time if voting is open to the public!

  1. Beth Hoffman Says:

    I’m speechless; this is such a surprise and an honor! Thank you for selecting my book as your Best In Fiction 2010.

    I hope we’ll get to meet soon so I can thank you both in person, and until that time, please know that I am deeply touched and delighted to be the recipient of such a wonderful recognition.

    Thank you again!

  2. Beth, you are more than welcome. Reading can be such an isolating hobby so TALKING about books and authors is MOST fun. Getting to share our favorite books with readers and everyone out there is a joy and privilege for us. Really, the kudos all go to you, for creating such a work of art that makes us want to shout its praises from the rooftops! Your book was a NYT Best Seller long before we came around. We’re just so proud of your success and can’t wait to celebrate with you along the way! We’re Beth Hoffman’s fan club through and through and can’t wait for us to finally get together! Your agent better get moving on that DC tour date; the buzz is getting bigger every day! 😉


  3. Beth Hoffman Says:

    Thank you both for your kindness and support. It means more than I can adequately express.

    I promise that if my winter paperback tour doesn’t take me to the DC area, that I will make arrangements to do an event there. Truly, I absolutely promise! DC is gorgeous in the spring, and that would be a perfect time for me to fly down.

  4. Fabookulous and I are most wonderful hosts/tour guides and will NOT let you down. The venue, wherever it is, will be packed to the rafters!!!!!!!! Of course we’ll expect to hog you with some quality time though too. hee hee 😉

    I am blessed to have Beth as one of my dearest friends, and I couldn’t be happier for her so deserved success with her first novel.

    She is just as Sweet, Special, Sincere, Beautiful, Humble, and exactly what you would expect to find, when you meet her in person.

    I as so delighted for her that you choose Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt as your 2010′s Best Fiction.

    Best of Luck Beth! 😉

  6. Beth Hoffman Says:

    Marie! Oh, you are a treasured friend. And, you weren’t kidding when you said you were always right — about everything! I keep learning that lesson every day. LOL!

  7. Marie Behling Says:

    🙂 Well then I have done my job!XO
