Ten More Book Blogs I Love

Linked in Top Ten Tuesday at That Artsy Reader Girl

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.

  1. Thanks so much for the shout out, I am in great company here.
    I couldn’t think of anything to do this year. This is a great idea, writing it down for next year!
    One blog I have started reading recently and really enjoy: http://booksbonesbuffy.com/ (speculative fiction), nice reviews and lots of memes

  2. I’m heading over now to check out What’s Nonfiction. It’s the nonfiction books that really keep me reading. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this list!

    1. You are sure to find much inspiration and food for thought there. I think we are living in a golden age of quality nonfiction.

  3. I’ve been part of the book blogging world since 2006 and I STILL haven’t heard of the majority of these book blogs. I love that there are so many out there and I love that you highlighted them here since it’s always so fun to find new ones. Great post!

    Happy TTT!


  4. I’m so thrilled to be included in your list Lory. Thank you for the honour, it means such a lot to hear that people enjoy my ramblings.

  5. Oh, Lory, I am so very glad I came by to read this wonderful list of sites from which to glean even more books to read!! Many of these I have never heard of or been to so it is a great resource. Thanks. ~ linda

  6. What a lovely interpretation of this week’s topic. I wouldn’t even know where to begin because there are so many. But I would definitely include Emma, we hosted a buddy read together last year and she was just wonderful. I don’t even know any of the others but I’m sure they are all very good.

    My TTT this week has the word heart in the title.

  7. Thank-you so much for the mention! 😊 It really makes my day to hear that you appreciate my middle grade reviews, especiall when you don’t read much middle grade yourself anymore.
