  2. I may have had way too much fun voting for my favorite ships!!!! ;) I love to see Cress and Thorne winning so many categories. I do think Winter is the shippiest book of all. Kaz and Inej NEED to get together. Seriously. I couldn't vote for Aelin and Rowan because I will always like Chaol more, even though I do love them. I do ship Shazi/Khalid a LOT. I am on season 2 of The 100 and I am really liking it. It took me a couple episodes into season 1 before I really got into the show. Okay, done rambling/fangirling.

    Thanks for hosting/creating The Shippy Awards! That trophy is wonderful. :D

  6. The SHIIIIIIPS!!! Best awards ever, I'm sure they were a lot of work so THANK YOU for making them happen!!! But seriously, not Jacin/Winter love?! RUDE! I love that Cress/Thorne got Sci Fi ship and that Winter got Shippiest book though because REALLY.
