Today I have an overview of my seven favourite WordPress book blogs! Of course there are lots of other blogs I love, but these are the ones whose content I connect with the most. They are in chronological order, starting from the one I’ve been following the longest.
Amy is an English Literature graduate and it really shows in her writing. Her bookish posts are both intelligent and entertaining, and always enjoyable to read. She likes a little bit of everything, which is the main reason I love her blog – I read very widely myself, so I identify with that. She also has a great sense of humour, which is my number one reason for following someone.
Fatima writes amazing reviews full of interesting opinions, and she’s also really good with discussion posts. Describing her reading taste is a bit difficult, but judging by her review index I’d say she likes classics and books that are a bit strange and obscure.
I think it’s safe to say that Lauren is my favourite person on this site. She has an amazing sense of humour, she uses Twitter way too much (making me randomly laugh at 4am), and she reads my kinds of books. We share a passion for the Percy Jackson series and anything Rick Riordan writes, and whenever she dicusses something I can relate to her 100%. If you don’t follow her yet, what are you doing?
Beth’s reviews are structured in a really nice way, which makes them easy to follow and enjoyable to read. She recently started reading the Percy Jackson books after much convincing from a lot of different bloggers, and I’ve been loving her excited reviews. (There’s nothing quite like seeing someone love a book you recommended.) She mostly reads YA and fantasy.
Madeline reads mostly fantasy and sci-fi, and I remember being absolutely delighted when I found her blog because I love her writing style. Her posts always pull me in and keep me interested until the end, and she writes some really fun miscellaneous posts every now and then.
Emily’s blog is wonderful. She often goes to really interesting literary places and events and I always love reading about them. She also posts a lot about Harry Potter, which obviously makes me very happy. I’ve been going through her reviews and she honestly reads a bit of everything, with lots of fantasy here and there and a bunch of YA books that have been on my wishlist for the longest time.
I remember finding Naz’s blog and just thinking, hell yeah, this is what I’ve been looking for. Years before I started my own blog, I was searching desperately for blogs focused on LGBT+ reads, and while Read Diverse Books is not just about queer books but all kinds of literary diversity, it really was a magical find for me. I immediately fell in love with Naz’s writing style and smart reviews, and I’ve found a lot of books there that are now on my wishlist.
I’d love to know what your favourite blogs are, and which people you’ve been following the longest!
‘Till next time and happy reading!
