Some Other Great Book Blogs

Yesterday was pretty hectic for me and today will be even worse, so instead of you guys flipping through my blog I’d like to recommend some other book blogs you might like.  Some of them have different focuses than I do if you’re looking for something other than YA.  Here are five book blog recommendations, in no particular order.

1.  The Streetlight Reader

You may recognize the link from some of my guest posts and you’d be absolutely correct.  Savindi has an amazing book blog of her own and occasionally blogs about her cooking attempts and general life observations.  She reviews a lot heavier books than I do, so if you’re looking for something to stimulate your brain I’d recommend looking for books over there.

2.  Another Novel Read

After a record-breaking month Kelley moved over to her own domain and I just couldn’t let her go so I bookmarked it.  Another Novel Read is great if you’re looking for some reviews on mainstream YA right after release because I’m a cheapskate and usually refuse to buy hardcover books unless they’re used.

3.  20four12

Caleb’s been having a couple rough months so he hasn’t been blogging much, but he’s got huge archives where you can find reviews of everything sci-fi or fantasy related.  If you love sci-fi 20four12 is a great blog for you because Caleb is into the hard science fiction I avoid (mainly because science never was my strong point).

4.  the quiet voice

Thomas is yet another fellow book blogger who reads way more literary fiction and nonfiction in a year than I will in a lifetime.  He’s not afraid to tackle both classics and new favourites in the genre, but at the same time he reviews a huge amount of YA.  the quiet voice is a great place for those of you who want to read both popular books and some books that are a little less mainstream, especially YA.

5.  DJ’s Book Corner

If you haven’t already checked it out, you need to read the crazy blog of that crazy author Diantha Jones.  Not only is she one of my favourite authors, she writes very amusing book reviews on pretty much anything she wants.  If you’re sort of a romantic, DJ’s Book Corner is perfect because Diantha reviews way more romance than I’d care to read in a lifetime.

There are so many great book blogs out there, but unfortunately due to time constraints I can only mention five of them.  If you like what you see, please check it out.  And if you weren’t mentioned this time, don’t fret: I’ll definitely be doing a post like this in the future.

Happy reading!

    Hey Carrie, thanks for including my blog in this post! I love how you offer links to sites that span a wide range of fiction as opposed to just YA or just science fiction. Book blogs are the best.

      Thank you. 🙂 Yes, I’m definitely going to read King of Thorns! I’ve got it on order from the bookstore right now, actually. And also my review of Prince of Thorns should appear tomorrow. I finished it weeks ago, but I’m so booked up that I had to schedule it way ahead.

      Not a bad problem to have, right? 😉

      No problem Caleb! I completely understand about things being hectic and I’m so glad you’re going to get back into your routine. I’ve missed my almost daily sci-fi doses.
