I been apart of the book blogging community for a little while now, and in that time I’ve visited hundreds of blogs and viewed ( tens of? ) thousands of posts! I follow so many amazing and positively bookish bloggers, and I felt that it was time to rave about some of them, and spread a little bit of love. I haven’t made too exhaustive a list, because there’s plenty of opportunity to do another post like this in the future and I wanted to keep this post a reasonable length for you all!
The seven book blogs below are ones whose content speaks to me the most out of all the others I follow. I read one post, and then I click another, and another . . . I love what I’m reading so much, I can’t help but go back for more! There’s always so much personality in their writing, and I love all their post content so so much!
Kat @ Novels & Waffles [ HERE ]
- her blog graphics are one of my favourite things. They’re just so adorable!
- her post titles are always fun and quirky, exactly like her blog name suggests. Some of my favourites include a retelling as fresh as snow and an eerie seaside crucible
- she posts heaps of book reviews, and I love visiting her blog because I always come away from it with brand new titles to feed my tbr.
- she calls her posts wafflings and I find that absolutely adorable
- she’s always super complimentary of posts she likes, and her comments on my blog have always been so supportive and encouraging
- she’s started making sticky note reviews, which are the cutest and greatest thing ever and I didn’t realise I could love something so much??
Sarah @ Written Word Worlds [ HERE ]
- she has the best graphics, I mean, just take a look at that blog header!
- she’s a co-creator of The YA room, which is a super cool book club that makes me want to move to Melbourne just so I can be apart of all the bookish things!
- she posts an awesome variety of content, with posts all the way from why i’m obsessed with trashy novels to a day in the life of a ya heroine, which is probably one of my favourite posts across all of wordpress!
- she gives out some of the best book recommendations, and so far I’ve never disliked a book she’s talked about on her blog
- she’s Australian, like me, which means that any books she buys, including all the ones with the gorgeous covers, are also available in bookshops near me!
Beth @ Reading Every Night [ HERE ]
- her comments on posts are always super supportive and charming, and she’s actually commented on my blog the most out of all my followers ( so basically I worship the ground she blogs on ,
which now that I’ve typed it out sounds a lot creepier than I meant it to be whoops)
- she has a lot of great discussion posts, such as why trigger warnings are important and how reviews influence our opinions
- she has a review index, which is amazingly organised ( seriously, I wish my blogging was like that! ) and always super helpful when visiting her blog
- she also has a review policy, which I think is a great thing to have on your blog, so that everything between you and your followers is clear cut. I may just take a page from her book and make one of my own, actually!
Zuky @ BookBum [ HERE ]
- she’s always spreading the love in her weekly posts about her favourite book reviews of the week, and gives a whole heap of bloggers some great recognition!
- I love the crass nature of her blog name, and every time I see one of her posts in my feed I can’t help but smile because of it ( I know what you’re thinking, how immature can I be to find the word bum so entertaining?
A lot I guess)
- she created a book club! how cool is that?! I aspire to be so suave and wordpress-popular as to create a book club one day
- she has an instagram which is just as awesome as her blog: her filters are amazing, and her aesthetic is so simple yet so pretty! ( I also just absolutely love bookstagram, so there’s that )
Nia @ Shades 0f Paper [ HERE ]
- her watercolour headers are too die for! I love clicking on her posts and looking at them for a while, she has so many variations depending on the type of post, so each and every one is unique!
- She has a whole section of her blog dedicated to monthly book releases, and we have similar taste in books, so her most anticipated books are usually my most anticipated releases as well!
- her instagram, oh my god, please check it out! I love the busy backgrounds of her photos, because there’s always something to look at in her pictures!
- she has a currently reading tab of the side panel of her blog, and I really like the idea of letting your followers keep up with your reading! ( I’d love to make one for myself, only I am a wordpress dunce, and alas have no idea how to do it )
Charlotte @ Charlotte Annelise [ HERE ]
- she’s super open about her writing, and the struggles that come along with it. It’s super encouraging to read a post about her own problems, and they always make my own seem that less daunting / impossible to overcome!
- she has a cool posts section on her blog, that has a heap of stuff that isn’t necessarily book-related eg. her bullet journal set up and her favourite booktubers
- I love her book chats so so much! They’re always super diverse content wise, and I love reading her posts because she always speaks so passionately throughout all her post topics
- her geometrical headings are divine! ( I realise I’ve talked about headers a lot in this post, but can you blame me? ) They’re simple and understated, and her minimalist blog style is really refreshing to look through, given that pretty much all the other blogs I follow are bright and super colourful
Lily @ Sprinkle Of Dreams [ HERE ]
- she’s semi-new to wordpress ( her blog only in May 2018, about a month after I started up mine ), and watching her gain support has been a treasure, as well as super uplifting for me! She didn’t need years and years of blogging experience to build up followers and a reputation, she was just ultimately herself, and that authenticity is what everyone loves about her
- she puts a lot of emphasise on reading diverse books! Which is a super cool thing to do, and so so important for readers out there! She’s always so vocal about them too, making sure everyone and anyone knows that these fantastic stories full of amazing representation are around
- her blog is super aesthetic, and that’s really without even trying! Her blog design is simple, with only small splashes of colour, but that’s what I love about it!
- She reads so many amazing books, and practically every book she posts about goes straight onto my goodreads tbr, because I know straightaway that anything she reads is worth investigating!
- her reviews are pretty critical, so you always know exactly what kind of book you’re walking into, and what to expect from the plot, characters, etc. You also know that, if Lily is gushing over a book, you’ll love it as well!
Do you follow any of these blogs? ( If not, you should definitely do so ) Who are some of your all-time favourite blogs? I’d love some follow recommendations!
