BBAW Registration

As usual, I'm signing up for all this last minute, but better last minute than late, right? (... at least, I hope I'm not too late?!?!)

So, I decided to go for the "Best Cultural Blog" category, because while I don't really see this book blog as one culture specific or whatever, I identify very strongly with the Asian diaspora identity and often talk about this in my reviews and other related posts. Also I do try to be mindful of people coming from different cultural backgrounds from myself, but who knows if I'm actually successful? lol.

Best Cultural Blog:

Child of the Owl by Laurence Yep
Wait for Me by An Na
Crossing by Andrew Xia Fukuda
The Faces of Covers: On Whitewashing and Fantasy
My many feelings on the new Silver Phoenix covers

Just for fun, entering for "Best YA Book Blog" because while I do review MG and the rare rare occasional adult (mostly SFF) title, my passion is YA and the majority of the books I read and ultimately discuss are YA as well.

Best Young Adult Book Blog:
Second Childhood: Review of Song Quest by Katherine Roberts
Triple Snapshots: YA Faerie Romance
Review: A Spy in the House by Y. S. Lee
Shine, Coconut Moon by Neesha Meminger
Give Up the Ghost by Megan Crewe

Also entering for "Best New Blog" category.

Best New Blog

Sequential Art Review: Le pacte des yokai by Yuki Midorikawa - Vol. 1
A Girl Made of Dust by Nathalie Abi-Ezzi
Discussion Post: On Minor Characters
Discussion Post: Reading in a Second Language
Triple Snapshots: Cynthia Kadohata

I saw that you are a part of the Debut Author Challenge! That is so amazing that you are supporting debut authors and I only recently found out that I am going to be one!!! I wanted to ask if you wouldn’t mind heading over to my blog and giving me your opinion. As a blogger turned author I would really appreciate it and the publisher is still giving out ARCs so you might have a chance at a free copy! Thank you and I hope you will stop by and check out The Thirteenth Chime!

Sincerely,
Emma Michaels
