We adore book bloggers, they tirelessly provide us with reviews and content to help us decide which books to buy next. So today we wanted to showcase our favourites and tell you a little bit about why we love them so very much.
We adore the content on Serendipity Reviews, starting out life as a craft and book blog, Viv has transformed it into quite possibly one of the most well known UK book blogs. Full of original content, author interviews and reviews. As an aspiring writer, the guest posts Viv hosts regularly contain helpful writerly advice from our favourite authors.
Reviews, food and other inspired posts is the kind of content you’ll find on Sisterspooky, Laura is infectiously passionate about books and it shines from the reviews. Laura hosts her own features and one to look out for is 20 random questions, a set of – well, 20 quick fire questions you won’t normally find in an author interview.
The home of the funny gif, Andrew loves his books, music and pixar animation. Follow him on Twitter if you want to be thoroughly entertained and this carries through onto his blog. It’s warm, knowledgable and a great insight into the books he loves.
If short, sharp and snapny reviews are your kind of thing you’ll love Luna’s Little Library with reviews less than 200 words your sure to get a very quick idea of if you’ll like a book. The blog is also a champion of diversity and has regular themed months like the currently running Diversity Month. While you’re there don’t forget to check out the blog’s very own shop – Inspired By Books which makes beautiful handmade products inspired by books.
For thoughtful and insightful reviews and discussion posts may we direct your attention to Sophie’s So Many Books, So Little Time.
One of the longest running book blogs we’ve come across on our travels across the book blogs of the internet over the last 7 or so years, Bart’s Bookshelf is a comprehensive introduction to the world of books. Complete with plenty of features, reviews and blog tours and with a modern look this blog will get you up and running in no time.
If history is your bag then you need to make sure you check out The Overflowing Library, alongside historical fiction Kirsty also reviews lots of contemporary and is this years host of the British Books Challenge, a challenge to try and read 12 books by UK authors in a year (something we give a massive thumbs up).
The first of two teen bloggers on this fine list of ours, The Mile Long Bookshelf is a brand of itself – not only a blog but also a BookTube channel, the blog features a mix of reviews, fun posts and posts which often provokes very thoughtful discussion.
Lucy is the Queen of Contemporary and is well known in the UKYA world, she’s the second teen blogger in this list and is arguably one of the most well known. Her blog is perfection personified, it might not be the most updated of this list but when something is posted it’s well worth your time to pay attention. Very well written and thought through content.
The newest of the blogs on this list, Tales of Yesterday has quickly risen to prominence. Chelley posts regularly with a mix of posts including posts with her son. A huge range of posts and reviews are what you’ll find here with lots of guest content, giveaways and blog tours. Even a quiz or two!
