Hey guys! So I had a pretty cool weekend this weekend, on Saturday, me and the family went to see the Men’s Team Gymnastics Final at the Hydro in Glasgow. If you didn’t know this about me already, I love gymnastics, I saw the same event at London 2012 and a few years ago went with my parents to see the Men’s All Around Final at the same arena in Glasgow, so yeah, was pretty excited. It was an amazing final and GB did so well, we got the silver medal which was awesome to see (if a little frustrating watching 2/3 of the team fall off on the high bar!).
Anyway, enough of my babbling on about gymnastics, we’re here to talk about books! Well more specifically, book bloggers as today Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl has asked us to compile a list of our favourite book blogs. I’m not entirely sure if I actually have ten of these, but I’m going to give it a go, here are the blogs/bloggers that I really love:
- Cait @ Paper Fury-https://paperfury.com/
Of course Cait’s blog was going to be first here! If you are in the book blogging community, you have probably at some point heard of Cait, she is very active on all social media, especially Twitter and Instagram. Cait’s blog is super funny, her reviews are awesome and we’re basically book twins, seriously if I think I want to read a book, I’ll just look at what Cait said about it because 9 out of 10 times, I usually agree! She just put her debut novel A Thousand Perfect Notes out this year, so as well as checking out her blog, you should definitely check that out too.
2. Jamie @ Perpetual Page Turner-http://www.perpetualpageturner.com/
Jamie’s blog has become more of a lifestyle + books blog in the last year since having her daughter, but it was always kind of leaning that way anyway, she’s just made the change official now. Jamie’s was actually the blog that inspired me to get into blogging, her posts are always so well written and she made blogging sound like such fun, that I thought, hey maybe I could do that!
3. Grace @ Almost Amazing Grace-http://www.almostamazinggrace.co.uk/
Grace’s blog is again a combination of books and lifestyle stuff, and it was actually her life content that drew me to her blog (though her book content is great too!) as she’s such a frank and honest blogger and talks about such a myraid of topics, plus she’s such a great writer, it’s always fun to read her posts!
4. Hannah @ Books, Life and Other Oddities-https://bookslifeotheroddities.wordpress.com/
I had to include my best friend’s blog here, not only because she’s my best friend, but also because she’s brilliant and funny and we basically have the exact same book taste, so if you like the books I talk about here, you’ll definitely like the books that she talks about. She’s a relatively new blogger, only just started this year, so it would definitely mean a lot to her and to me if you went and gave her blog a follow!
5. Lucy @ Queen of Contemporary-http://queenofcontemporary.com/
I will admit, I follow Lucy more on Twitter than on her blog, but if you love contemporary YA fiction and classics then her blog is definitely worth a read. Lucy runs #ukyachat and is just such an enthusiastic advocate for YA books and books in general and I’m just amazed by how much she’s accomplished at so young, she’s only 18 and her debut novel The Paper and Hearts Society is coming out next year!
6. Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense-https://akernelofnonsense.wordpress.com/
I discovered Alicia’s blog through Top Ten Tuesday and then followed her because we have pretty similar taste in books, so it’s always nice to get recommendations from her blog! She also does super cool discussion posts, called Kernels of Nonsense, which are always really interesting and insightful to read.
7. Kate @ Reading Through Infinity-https://readingthroughinfinity.com/
Kate is another blogger who has quite similar book taste to mine, so of course I love hearing what she has to say about certain books and she is a fellow Schwab fan, so great fun to flail with over one of my favourite authors!
8. Rae @ BookmarkChronicles-https://bookmarkchronicles.wordpress.com/
I was interviewed by Rae for her Summer Spotlight Series earlier in the summer and she was just so lovely to me and had such good questions. She writes great posts about books and about feminism and diversity and just generally has great insights, so is definitely a blogger worth the follow!
9. Angel, An Overthinking Teenager, Cora, Elly, Emily, Hannah, Janet, Michelle, Erin & Sydney @ The Feministas-https://thefeministas.wordpress.com/
I’m breaking off from the prompt ever so slightly to include one non book related blog, because it’s one of my favourites, these girls talk all about feminism and feminist issues and it’s such an important topic and one that I am of course very invested in being a feminist myself, so I love reading these girls thoughts on feminism and all the different issues that women face in our society.
10. Lauren @ SERIESous Book Reviews-http://seriesousbookreviews.com/
Lauren’s blog is really great, because she concentrates on series, so you can find out whether a series is worth your time and energy! She also does series recaps which are super helpful because I don’t know about you, but I end up forgetting a lot of the previous book in a series in the year or two wait for the next one!
So there we go, my favourite book (mostly) bloggers! Have you checked out any of these sites? Do you also like them? Who are your favourite bloggers, book or otherwise? Let me know in the comments!
Next week’s topic is Books To Pull You Out of A Reading Slump which I am excited for because boy do I have experience with those! In the meantime, I just finished Days of Blood and Starlight, so I think I should have a review of that up for you at the weekend, after my job finishes on Saturday, so check back for that if you are a Laini Taylor fan!
