Friday-Advice for bloggers/Trends in blogging
So let's get to today's topic-a few of my favorite book bloggers. This was a toughie, but I'm going to keep my list to five.
Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell
I can always count on Linda to comment on my posts. She reads a lot of fantasy and urban fantasy so I'm always adding books she reviews to my tbr list. She's hella nice and always helpful.
A Striped Armchair
I started reading Eva's blog because she used to host Library Loot. I stuck around because I love her passionate posts about fantastic literature. I don't read a lot of the same books Eva does but I do love to read what she thinks about them. I do credit her for making me think about what I read, about who wrote what I read and what experiences I had reading them. Eva's also the reason I started calling my reviews my thoughts on the book. I don't review books; I share my thoughts on them.
The Captive Reader
Claire took Eva's spot as co-host of Library Loot which is how I started reading her blog. Like Eva, Claire reads a lot of books I don't read. Now this might seem silly, to read about books I have no intention of reading. But I like reading Claire's thoughts. Her thoughts broaden my thinking and make me think more about what I read.
From L.A. to LA
Shoshanah and I tend to lean towards the same books. I know a few books she reviewed wound up on my tbr list. I definitely love hearing about her life in Louisiana as well as her planning for her upcoming wedding.
My Books. My Life.
I actually gave Michelle this last spot because I love following her on twitter. Find her at @michelleerin. She talks about awesome things like books, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, fantasy football, and ballet. She also reads a lot of books I want to read so I enjoy her review posts too.
Did I expose you to a new book blogger or do you agree with my five favorites?
