I love books (possibly more than my family some days when they are driving me crazy), so during my personal time, I always look for the best book blogs to follow that promote the idea that loving books is not some kind of crazy.
Personally, I would rather read articles about books in addition to reviews, so most of my favorite book blogs tend to be more bookish than books, if that makes any sense. I don’t mind some book reviews, but I get bored if a site is all reviews.
If you love books, you might have already discovered these best book blogs, but perhaps there are a few on this list that you haven’t yet discovered:
10 of the Best Book Blogs (in my opinion)
These are 10 of my favorite blogs and some of the best book blogs that I know of.
Modern Mrs. Darcy
Modern Mrs. Darcy is a book/lifestyle blog, but I usually only read her book-themed posts. Each year she puts out a reading guide of all of the books she has read the previous year and picks the best to suggest to her readers, similarly to what I do here on Daily Mayo. Mrs. Darcy favors classic books, so I always look to her for recommendations on books when I’m in a classical mood.
Buzzfeed Books is really fun when I’m in the mood to read/do something silly related to books. Buzzfeed Books always makes me laugh about a fandom. Their recent series have focused on what a book would be like in a different setting, and they always have a lot of Harry Potter activities.
Food in Literature
I am amazed at the quality of Food in Literature. The production value on the videos are amazing, and the foods always look delicious. After I read one of the Food in Literature articles or watch one of the videos, I want to bake something book-themed right away.
Book Riot is probably my favorite site on this list because there is always something there that I love to read. They do not do it so much any more, but I first fell in love with them based on their book mash-ups where they would have visitors guess if a line came from a classic book or a Taylor Swift song, or something like that.
The ladies at Chapter Break post a lot of reviews, which is fun, but my favorite part of their site is the Chat Between the Chapters segment. In this segment, the ladies pose a thoughtful bookish question and you can share your answers with them. I always love hearing what they have to say and reading the other comments on the posts.
The Reading Room
In all honesty, I tend to follow The Reading Room more on Facebook than on their actual website because they always post pretty pictures of books. But their articles are usually informative and they post fun quizzes every now and then.
The Quirky Bookworm has young children just like I do, so she often posts information about children’s books, which is really fun. She is my go-to resource for the younger crowd.
Go Book Yourself
Go Book Yourself was one of my first bookish blogging friends, and she is amazing. She is Irish, which is really cool to me. She posts mainly book reviews, but every now and then she has other content, too.
The YA Gal
The YA Gal is mainly active on Facebook, but she does have a few websites. Her Facebook page has over 14,000 fans, and she posts all kinds of information about YA books. She even has her own YA book coming out next year, Genesis Girl.
Pink Heels Pink Truck
Taylor, the owner of PHPT is a personal friend and the operator of the Literary Junkies link party that I participate in every month. PHPT is not just about books, but Taylor often posts book reviews and other book-related stuff there. She also has an entire series on fun cocktails, which is quite fun.
What are the blogs you think are the best book blogs? There are so many out there, I’m sure I’m missing some really great ones! Which blogs should I add to my reading roster?
