If you’re anything like me, your passion for reading isn’t confined to books alone — your interest lie in the literary world as a whole.
When I’m not reading a book, I’m browsing the sites of my favorite bloggers who I turn to for book and product recommendations/feedback, the most recent news in publishing, interviews, and more!
Plus, as a blogger, I understand the importance of supporting the blogging community. I know I’m a small fish in a big pond, so I am happy to blog hop and look to other bloggers for guidance and inspiration in addition to the sincere enjoyment I get from seeing the content they create.
I’ve rounded up some of my favorite bloggers to share. These bloggers have beautifully designed sites, creative and quality content, and genuine critiques of books and other products. So, whether you’re looking for authentic reviews, fun memes, sophisticated layouts, or stylish bookish inspo, these are a few bloggers to follow!
Kimberly Faye Reads
Kim of Kimberly Faye Reads is my go-to for Contemporary Romance book recs! She is one of the few book bloggers I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in person, and I can honestly say that her personality comes across in everything she does on her blog. Plus, she is a fellow WVU alum with a fantastic gold and blue blog design that I can’t help but love!
I have enjoyed getting to know Sara of Novel Novice through bookstagram over the past year or so. Her blog offers a great variety and is one of the most fun blogs I follow. She reads and reviews Middle Grade and Young Adult Fiction, as well as Adult Romance, so there is something for everyone. She has a lot of creative posts, including my favorite — Styled by Books!
I began following Vilma Iris for her book reviews and gorgeous photography. I have since become a huge fan of her beauty and fashion posts, as well. I love that I can go to her blog (which has an amazing layout) and find a book rec, cute sweater on sale, and new face serum all in one go. Vilma also happens to be one of my biggest blogging inspirations! Our blogs may be very different, but she is consistently putting out quality content and maintains a level of professionalism while still showing her followers who she is, which is exactly what I would like to do.
Beware Of The Reader
Beware Of The Reader is a phenomenal blog for book-related discussion, awesome giveaways, and (primarily) Romance book reviews! I only discovered Sophie’s blog in the past few months, but it is now one that I regularly visit.
Kelly and Christy of BookCrushin’ are two of my faves! When they came together in 2018, BookCrushin’ became an even bigger staple in my blog hopping. It features a New Release Tuesday post each week that has kept me up to speed on the latest Young Adult books, and blog memes like #CoverCrush, #BooksOnOurRadar, and #BookRewind (to name a few) are a lot of fun to follow!
