Book Blogs Rebecca Reads and Appreciates

Book Blogger Appreciation Week is underway! Today we’re asked what blogs weren’t nominated that should have been. I’m only a new book blogger myself, so I know I miss a lot of great blogs. All of those that I’m subscribed to are in my far right sidebar. (I hope I haven’t missed any? It’s been a few weeks since I’ve updated it, and I don’t have time right now to do so.)

Here are some book bloggers that I really think should be recognized: I always appreciate what they have to say.

  • Rose City Reader always has insightful posts. As a self-proclaimed “compulsive list-reader,” she stills reads deeply and writes insightful reviews.
  • Blacklin’s Reading Room has some of the best writing and most interesting book reviews, as well as links to interesting websites. I learn about history just reading the blog!
  • 5-Squared is a group blog, which means there are a variety of book reviews by a number of different people. I really enjoy the variety of reviews.
  • Sophisticated Dorkiness has lots of great thoughts about reading. She’s a new blogger, like I am, and I think she should be voted Best New Book Blogger, because I’m excited to see her blog grow (even in the midst of grad school!).
  • The Aremenian Odar Reads certainly reads an interesting mix books. I enjoy reading her posts.
  • In my mind, A Striped Armchair reads the most eclectic mix of books: fiction, non-fiction, stories, etc. I enjoy reading her reviews.

Those are just the first six in my “favorites” folder in Google Reader. There are a dozen more book blogs in there, but I really don’t have time to write a paragraph about each of them right now. I’m sorry, folks! I love your blogs! Maybe I’ll get to them in another post this week.

P.S. This is my 100th post! On to the next 100!

    Thanks Rebecca for the listing! Congratulations on your 100th post!

    @Sophisticated Darkness: “Best New Blog” would be a good category for BBAW. And none of us would qualify! lol!

    Thanks so much for mentioning me, Rebecca! The feeling is mutual: I love reading your posts and thinking about the questions you pose at the end of each review.

    Now I am off to read the other blogs, because apart from Eva’s they are all new to me!

    Congrats on your 100th post! And I haven’t heard of several of the blogs you mentioned, so I’m excited to get some new reads in. :)

    I really hope I get to post a review today, lol. Grad school is kicking my butt this week. ;)

    Kim and Blackin: I think the problem with “best new blogger” is that because we’re new no one knows us yet, so how could anyone get enough votes in the “primaries”? Same thing would happen any year. How do new bloggers get found? It’s to get out there.

    Amanda and Myrthe, isn’t it fun to find new blogs?

    Eva, isn’t it annoying when life gets in the way of blogging? I’ve been rather busy too lately!

    Hi Rebecca! I saw you over at Gautami’s and thought I’d pop over and say hi. What I’ve learned through BBAW is how many book bloggers there are and how many I don’t know! I recognize Eva’s name from the read-a-thon last June, but see that there are others I need to visit as well.

    Have a great week!! :)
