When I first started trying to grow an audience for my book blog I followed and commented on A LOT of other books blogs. Over the past few months I have been cleaning out my following list on Bloglovin' and I think I have cultivated a great list of AWESOME book blogs. Here are some of my favorites: (these are all personal book blogs--I will do another post later about publishing/author blogs. Penguin has one now that I love reading!)
I think Jill and I started around the same time. She has rebranded and almost called it quits a few times, but thankfully, she always comes back. I love her reviews and that she lets her students be involved. Hers is one I read every time there is a new post!
Donna is another one who almost gave up blogging, but has come back. I love that she still reviews old RL Stine books and I love her snark. Fun blog to read!
Forever Young Adult:
I love this blog as much for the book reviews as for all the other YA pop culture they talk about.
Abby the Librarian:
Abby is a youth services librarian whose blog is great because she really posts from a librarian's point of view, not just a reader of YA books.
One of my favorites from the beginning!
Great reviews and amazing blog design. I could look at hers all day.
I love her reviews and she posts a ton. Always like to read her Staking the YA shelves on the weekends.
These are some of my favorites, but I have added a few new ones to my list this year: Pop Goes the Reader and Log Cabin Library being two of my favorites new ones.
As I was cleaning up my following list I was amazed at how many haven't posted in a year or more. And because I haven't been seeking out many new blogs, I don't know if the whole community is growing like it was.
Do you have a must read book blog?
