Top Ten Favorite Book Blogs/ Bookish Websites

  

 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by 
That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back to The Broke and the Bookish so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.

This week is Top Ten Book Blogs or Websites. This one's tough because I have about 1,437 favorite blogs I love to visit- how to pick? So I decided to pick ones randomly- no that didn't work- okay I'm going with blogs that I make it a point to visit very regularly and/ or have actually recommended books that have turned out awesome, or that I interact with a lot. Whew. I don't want anyone not on this list to feel left out though- I literally have a list of blogs and more than likely you're on it!       

It Starts At Midnight

Seriously, Shannon's site is always a lot of fun and she got me to read The Hunger Games- finally! How cool is that? Plus she's the best 100 fan of ever! 

La La is simply the nicest blogger I know in a blogosphere defined by awesome people. She was very welcoming to me when I started and is super fun to talk to, and so down to earth.  


Danielle is awesome and I love how thought out her reviews are. Plus she's super positive and I always get great book ideas from her site! 


Elle's blog is pretty new to me but she has a nice eclectic mix of reviews, anime and discussion posts. Great content! 


Kristen's blog is pretty awesome- we read almost none of the same books but I always enjoy reading her reviews, and she always introduces me to books I wouldn't have seen or considered. She covers a lot of urban fantasy, has a master list of disabled rep books, and has great discussion posts also. 


Lindsi's blog is another one that's pretty new to me, but she has great content, posts regularly and covers comics! Lots of comics! And I get lots of ideas from her blog of stuff to try, which is one of my favorite things in a book blog.  

Jo's Book Blog

Jolene is another very supportive, super nice blogger and she always has nice reviews. I get lots of ideas for books from her posts, and she also hosts a very cool Dog Days of Summer event along with La La!

For What It's Worth 

Karen's blog is always interesting and I enjoy reading her Monday Musings and Friday Fives posts. She also might have sent me a new Kindle once lol but we straightened that out

Victorian Soul Critiques

I love this blog! Litha always makes me think and her reviews are always worth reading. I also like her Fortnightly Updates.

Musings of a Literary Wanderer

 Angela's blog has nice reviews, they just flow really well, and I like the variety of her posts. There's always something good to read on her blog! 

This Dark Material

JJ has fantastic reviews, well thought out, and she's a film buff, so you're likely to find some film stuff there too. Awesome blog.

The Bibliosanctum

I seem to always find good stuff here, and Mogsy's reviews are the best. I can't tell you how many SF books she's put on my radar!

Lindsey Reads

I always enjoy Lindsey's fantasy reviews, as well as her discussion posts and updates. I like to see her thoughts on contemporaries as well, since I read more of those nowadays.

Cornerfolds

Tracy's site is always amazing and I love her YA reviews. Plus she's a Disney fan and I can get behind that! I like her movie posts as well- and her co- blogger Chelcie reviews YA also!

Wait... there's more

I couldn't stop- there are just to many awesome blogs/ bloggers out there. Here are more of my regular visits.

  4. Thanks for the mention. I am always simultaneously embarrassed and super flattered when people mention WLABB. So, thank you. Shannon is such an old favorite of mine. I love her sense of humor and all the ways she contributes to the community. Angela, Lindsey, Tracy, and Kristen are all regulars of mine as well. I have to go through your list, because I can never have too many blogs on my Feedly feed.

  18. 1,437 favorite blogs - sounds about right, haha :) These are some great blogs here, some I already know and some I still need to visit so thanks for the recs! And thank you so much for the mention! I also love how you suddenly said 'Wait, there's more...' Haha should have thought about that, so I could squeeze in some more favorites too! :D

    1. Right? I found so many this week just by hopping through. And you're welcome! I almost kept going... :)

  19. These lists are SO hard to do! Thanks for the shout out. Here's a brand new Kindle Greg - NOW GIVE IT BACK! lol I still feel awful about that. I probably would have kept quiet and let you keep it if it wasn't part of a trade in deal I had because that was embarrassing.

    And I love how we follow blogs that don't share the same interests in books. I have a lot of those but I love their voice and the way they blog.

    1. Yes they are! Ha ha and NO do not feel bad- that was YOUR Kindle! I just happened to order one around the same time. That was funny though :)

      And agreed! The diversity is amazing- some blogs I don't read ANY of the same books, but I love 'em!

    1. Yes- how do we keep track??? And ha ha sorry!!! You should TOTALLY be on this list- a lot of these honestly are blogs I've been following for YEARS, so they sprang to mind especially as I contemplate my 5 years of blogging. But having recently discovered your blog I am definitely a fan!

      Delete
    2. I am awful at keeping track haha I mostly just comment back when people comment on my blog and then use the Wordpress reader, but then I miss out on a lot of great stuff from non-wordpress blogs :( And I was just kidding! I'm just happy when people comment on mine still! Plus I made two lists when I wasn't expecting to me on any :D

  26. Can't blame you for naming all these amazing bloggers. There are so many great people in this community. I'm familiar with a number of these awesome bloggers.

  34. AW thanks!!! I was too afraid to do this topic, I am a coward obviously haha. (Plus, let's be real, I was way too deep in The 100 last week to even form a coherent list.) BUt I agree with SO many of these, so many great bloggers on your list! And, a couple I definitely need to check out too. This post is not good for my precarious tabs situation 😂

  36. Shannon's blog is always a fun visit; she's got a great sense of humor, too. I spy lots of new-to-me bloggers, which means I'm going to have to make some visits! There's too many amazing bloggers to include in one list. :)

    Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland, Greg.

  43. Cornerfolds is fantastic (could easily have ended up on my list too but by virtue of being SO new to me it just wasn't my first thought?) I'm finding my way to so many new blogs this week it's going to be a bit of a problem...

  52. Wow! What an incredible and extensive list, Greg! It makes me so happy to see such diversity in your TTT list. I am with you- I don't know how I could just pick 10 from the community. You're braver than I. I didn't want to go over the 10. But I'm glad you did! Time to visit some incredible new bloggers. :)
