Welcome to the second half of June’s Blogsphere highlights! In case if you are new here, or just checking out these posts for the first time, this is a bi-monthly segment here on BiblioNyan where I share some really fantastic posts I’ve discovered from fellow bloggers during the month. Since there are so many wonderful bloggers and content out there, I do this twice a month. The one that goes up at the end of the month also includes some of my favourite posts that I’ve written during the relative month as well.
As a content creator, I respect other content creators and feel that we should all support one another in our blogging shenanigans as a big family rather than creating competition. In my experience, it’s far more fulfilling to share the love than to focus on negative things. ♥
After sharing a list of my favourite posts that I wrote myself for the month, everything that’s listed—from other bloggers— shall be broken down by post type (books, anime, comics, etc.) to the best of my ability. If you have any posts/bloggers that you feel are marvellous, please share them in the comments section that everyone can go pay them a visit.

Mental Health & Blogging:
- Anushka @ Going Through Books: How to Run a Book Blog Even If You’re Not Reading Much – Anushka’s post made my heart swoon with fluffiness. When I first began blogging, I didn’t read nearly as much as I did now, and it always left me feeling discouraged as a blogger. I wish I had this post to refer to back then; it’s absolutely incredible and so helpful!

I love writing book reviews, but they always seem to garner less attention than other types of book-related content, such as TBRs and tags. This discussions sheds light on the importance of book reviews and how we can show more love to them.
- Wendy @ What the Log Had to Say: #MentalHealthMondays: Could My Mental Health Have Been Avoided? – Wendy’s personal account of her struggles with mental health, and she wonders if there are ways to prevent specific types of mental health is both touching an intensely contemplative, especially for anyone who deals with mental health illnesses with their day-to-day life. I highly recommend you check it out.
