Last year for the “Love Freebie” at Top Ten Tuesday, I listed Ten book blogs I love. Of course, it was hard to stick to just ten, so I thought I’d do the same again this year! This also meets my February goal for the Support Book Bloggers challenge, an extra bonus.
Here are ten more of my favorite book blogs, and I hope you enjoy visiting them if you haven’t already.
- Even though I don’t read much middle grade fiction any more, I still have a lot of affection for the genre and enjoy reading reviews from other bloggers — Falling Letters among them.
- Charlotte’s Library is another wonderful blog that focuses on MG fantasy and science fiction, with a handy round-up of reviews in that genre every month, as well as a “Timeslip Tuesday” feature that turns up lots of interesting and unusual titles.
- I have to actually avoid visiting What’s Nonfiction too often because if I do my nonfiction TBR will explode. Whenever I do read Rennie’s in-depth, thoughtful reviews, I am amazed by her ability to read so much and so well.
- With Emma of Words and Peace I’ve connected over her Francophone expertise — I had the pleasure of participating in a French book club with her for a while — among other topics of mutual interest, including classic fiction (she also helped me get through Don Quixote).
- Reading the End is one of the first blogs I connected with back in the days of The Emerald City Book Review, asking Jenny to review Howl’s Moving Castle for the first Witch Week – and I was so excited she said yes! She’s still a favorite with her distinctively enthusiastic reviews and features that hold my attention in spite of eschewing graphics.
- BookerTalk offers great reviews that embrace but go well beyond the Booker list, engaging features, and also a super helpful A-Z series of book blogging tips.
- Staircase Wit and I share a nostalgic taste for writers like Maud Hart Lovelace, Noel Streatfeild, D.E. Stevenson, and Janet Lambert. It’s fun to see the vintage editions she shares from her bookshelves.
- A Gallimaufry is as delightfully eclectic as the title suggests, appealing to my likewise eclectic genre-hopping. She hosted Sylvia Townsend Warner reading week last year and I hope she’ll do it again.
- Keeping Up With the Penguins has one of the best blog names ever, and lives up to it with fun, attention-grabbing book lists and other features.
- I’m going to cheat a bit at the end here and list the founding bloggers of Shiny New Books along with SNB itself: Annabel, Simon, and Harriet. (The fourth founder, Victoria, is sadly on an extended blogging hiatus.) To anybody who thinks bloggers aren’t “real” book reviewers should be directed to this exemplary site, to which I’m honored to be an occasional contributor.
I hope you will share the love and tell me what other bloggers you especially enjoy! And if your blog wasn’t listed here, just wait. I know I have another list in me.
