I Love Book Bloggers


This whole week is focused on celebrating book blogs, which I think is a FABULOUS idea. Let’s talk about how great these people are who continually promote books, shall we?

But before we do that, I have to say that this is by no means a comprehensive list. If you saw my Google Reader, you’d wonder how I ever figured out where to start in picking out a few bloggers to promote. Believe me, this is like picking a favorite book or a favorite piece of chocolate. SO HARD. I even thought about NOT doing this topic, because I seriously hate excluding anyone. But I decided to do this and I hope this introduces you to a new blog or two.

1st Books: Stories of How Writers Get Started is a blog written byΒ Meg Waite Clayton, author of THE WEDNESDAY SISTERS. She has other authors guest post on their experience of getting published for the first time, and it’s pretty fantastic. I’ve found new authors on her site because the guest posts are always top notch.

A High and Hidden Place: Tales of a Capricious Reader is a great blog where you can get recommendations for a variety of books. The blogger, Heather, has a great writing style and is a lot of fun. πŸ™‚

books i done read is very funny. All should read this blog.

Books on the Brain. Lisa is the first book blogger I ever met and still a favorite.

Dreadlock Girl is another favorite. She has great taste in books, has widened my reading, and is a great photographer. Also, she was great to meet in person.

Galleysmith is a new blogger, and holy cow, I don’t know how we ever survived without her. She has a really fun writing style and she loves YA. I love her.

Jen’s Book Thoughts is a blog that focuses mostly on mysteries, but holy cow does she come up with great ideas for her blogs. She’s invited authors to do a 6 word memoir, and she’s got another project up her sleave for next year. This girl NEVER SLEEPS.

Jenn’s Bookshelves. Jenn has never steered me wrong on a book, and she’s super fun to hang out with, too. This is a must read.

Linus’s Blanket. I met this blogger, Nicole, when I was in New York for BEA, and she’s one of the most well-spoken, well-reasoned bloggers I met while I was in New York. She writes great reviews and is a lot of fun.

Presenting Lenore. Lenore and I have very similar tastes in books, and she does a great job of not giving away every. single. dingle. plot detail.

Steph and Tony Investigate! Steph writes fantastic reviews, and has some of the most thorough reviews I’ve ever read. She puts other reviews to shame.

The Bluestocking Society has more great book reviews. I love Jessica’s style and recommend her blog to everyone.

I’m really looking forward to the rest of the week’s festivities! Tune in tomorrow for an interview I have with another blogger!

    Thanks for the list. I added a few of them to my reader.


  2. Stephanie

    You’ve included some great blogs on your list plus some blogs that are new to me. I’ve been a big fan of The Blue Stocking Society for awhile now. Dreadlock Girl is another great one, although I only just discovered her blog this morning after reading about her on another blog.


  3. Janelle

    I’ll have to check a few of these out, especially Galleysmith by the way it sounds. Thanks!


  4. Kathy

    Book bloggers love you too! You came up with a great list. Only one blog is new to me and I’m going to check it out now.


  5. Jen Forbus

    Bad words. You are giving my reader lead ankle weights. I’m having such fun checking the new-to-me blogs out that I stopped mid-reply to check out another one and lost my first comment. LOL Love your list. And, now I’m going to publish this comment before I make another stupid mistake. πŸ™‚

    Have I told you I love you and your blog so much that I want to marry you both and stay together until death do us part?!! You better show up on the 13th (I booked my tix – YAY!) so we can continue to fight about Gale vs Peeta (2 against 1).


  25. S. Krishna

    Great list! I *think* I know of all these blogs, but I need to make sure they’re in my reader! Thanks for sharing.

    Can I join the Meg Waite Clayton fan club here :)? I not only adored her novel, but she writes great blogs and is so kind to everyone. I really want to meet her in person someday.


  28. unfinishedperson

    Couldn’t agree with you more on all of them. Have read many of them, and the ones I haven’t, I’ve heard of them previously. Great, great list.


  29. Jessica (The Bluestocking Society)

    Trish, I, too, am catching up post-BBAW. Thank you so much for including me on this list. I love your personal style, so I’m off to check out the rest of your recommendations.
