Top Ten(ish) Book Blog Recommendations

Tuesday, November 6, 2012


This week's Top Ten from The Broke and the Bookish is a freebie. Recently a non-blogging friend who loves to read asked for recommendations of other book bloggers I follow, so I thought I would make her a list.

Here’s an older post with quite a few of my favorites, definitely check it out if you’re looking for new blogs, they are all awesome.

In this top ten list I’ll mention only ones that aren’t already in that original post.

There are so many book bloggers out there and I know I’ve only found a tiny number of them. Here are a few that I enjoy both the books they read and review and because of their personalities. I know I’m going to forget some great ones, but there are so many!

The Sleepless Reader

No Page Left Behind

Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity

Care’s Online Book Club

You were the first book blogger I ever read and I found you through Library Thing. Then somewhere along the line I added the ones from your first list and now I have some new ones. Super! This is a fun, fun hobby. Thanks for all your hard work (and while you can tell you enjoy it--I have no doubt it is hard work).

Arrghhh…I've got to resist!! I already have too many blogs to read and not enough time! But we do have a few blogs in common so I can vouch for your good taste!
