Want to know who won? Here are the winners of the top book blogs contest.

Congratulations to these very worthy blogs. There were so many blogs that we liked but weren’t able to include on this list. To all the book bloggers out there, keep up the good work. Your voice is important!

Here’s How the Winners Will Be Chosen

If you’re curious how the judges and I will choose the winners of this contest, we’ve included our four criteria below.

  • Quality of posts: Quality counts! Posts will be judged based on how engaging, useful, and well-written they are. This is our main criteria and counts for more than half of the final score.
  • Frequency of posts: Blogs that post more regularly will be scored higher than blogs that post infrequently.
  • Reader response: We like to see blogs with higher comment counts and social media shares because it shows a dedicated community of readers.
  • Initial nominations: The number of nominations each blog received at the start of the contest will also play a small part in our final decision.
