The Bookish Academy Awards 2015

image

I wasn’t tagged to host this Bookish Award Show, but I saw this all over the book blogosphere and thought it was a pretty neat idea.

I have never watched an award show in my life. Sometimes I would see clips here and there on the Internet, but I’ve never sat down in front of the TV and watched an award show happen. I either never know about it until the day of/day after or I don’t have time to watch it.

However, that doesn’t matter because now I’m hosting this Bookish Academy Awards of 2015. Basically, it’s like the Academy Awards but with books that I’ve read in the year of 2015. The name/title bolded in blue is the winner of the category.
