*Top Ten Tuesday* Favorite Book Blogs/Bookish Websites


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Joood - Hooligan of Platypire reviews bossed me into doing this, so I guess this is a thing I do now. 

This weeks theme is favorite book blogs or bookish websites. I currently feel like I'm a horrible book blogger because I haven't felt like I have the time to spread the love around the blogosphere like I should (I've even neglected to return comments left on my weekly memes posts lately because I'm a garbage human being). This means that I haven't been seeing other people's blogs lately, so trying to come up with ten favorite bloggers may be a bit difficult for me. But I'll see what I can do.

1: That Artsy Reader Girl - This one is easy because she is the current sponsor of Top Ten Tuesday, which is one of my favorite weekly memes (even thought I often leave it until the last minute and then just throw something together real quick).

2: Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer - This was another easy choice for me because she is the host of another one of my favorite memes, the weekly Book Blogger Hop. I'd have to be truly awful to not send a shout out to the people that have kept me posting at least somewhat regularly even when I'm too busy with other stuff.

3: Tynga's Reviews - And my final weekly meme host is present and accounted for. I try to make sure I post a Stacking the Shelves post every Saturday because I just love bragging about the new books I get (and if I let it go for more than a week, it takes forever to build the post and I hate that).

4: Booker T's Farm - Books and Nails and Puppy Dog Tales - Barb has been one of the most consistent commenters on my blog, which means in the past I've spent a fair amount of time on hers. I know that she's a big horror fan so if I'm ever looking for a good recommendation for a book that will scare me, I know exactly where to head to for.

5: Silver's Reviews - I believe Elizabeth participates in all three of my usual weekly memes, and she consistently returns comments at the very least, so if I'm crunched for time and see her name while linkup hopping, I definitely stop by her site. Also, she reads and reviews historical romances, so she's kind of my go-to blogger for those recommendations.

6: Read All the Things - AJ always makes these awesome graphics with the covers for her memes (like Stacking the Shelves), so her blog stands out in my mind because I envy her skills.

7: Avalinah's Books - Evelina is the mastermind behind the State of the ARC monthly meme that I have been participating in. It hasn't resulted in me making significant headway on my ARC backlog yet, but I'm still pretending that I think it will eventually at the moment.

8: Celebrity Readers - Curly Carla and Lenoreo are absolute sweethearts (and I got to meet them in actual person at Book Bonanza in July and it was magical for me). They tend to post reviews for lots of abtastic books, and they don't shy away from reviewing even when a book just doesn't do it for them.

9: Caroline Andrus - Blogger - I would be a horrible Facebook wife if I didn't include the lovely Caroline in this list. I think she's been focusing more on her own writing lately than on her blogging, but her blog is still one of my favorites.

10: Platypire Reviews - I am grudgingly including Platypire Reviews on my list because while I absolutely adore most of the Platypires and their posts, my arch-nemesis is their leader, so I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with that blog.

Would you look at that. I managed to come up with ten! Even if I did have to "cheat" a little by including all my meme hosts.

What are some of your favorite book blogs or bookish websites? Do I even come close to your top 10? - Katie

  7. Aww, thanks for the shout-out. I use free templates on Canva to make a lot of my graphics, so they don’t take much skill.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!
