Amy's Bookshelf

Hello! My name is Amy Buckle. I have always been an avid reader and there’s nothing I like more than curling up in bed with a cup of tea and a good book. Amy’s Bookshelf is a way for me to express my opinions about the novels I read; ranging from old classics to contemporary works of fiction, I hope there’s a review on here for everyone.

Savidge Reads

Simon Savidge is the man behind Savidge Reads. Born in March 1982 and heralding from the Peak District, where he comes from a long line of Book Lovers, Simon is a book addict. Due to the influences of his much missed Gran and lovely Mum at an early age he became a book-a-holic, though admits to having a few ‘wilderness years’ from reading (something English Literature at school nearly destroyed forever) where he didn’t pick up a book, fortunately he was recommended Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca by someone very kind and look what happened…

Short Book and Scribes

Hi, I’m Nicola and thank you for finding your way here. Anybody who knows me will tell you I am mad about books and am never without a book on the go. I decided to set up the Short Book and Scribes book blog because I was reviewing every book I read on Amazon and so it seemed like a good idea to have them all in one place. I also really love to connect with authors and publishers. For me, every bit of the process of producing a book is interesting, from the writing to the publishing to the reading.

From First Page to Last

I like to read different genres of books, both fiction and non fiction. If the blurb grabs me then I’ll want to read it. I cannot promise a review deadline but will honour all review requests I accept. Please let me know if you have a preferred timeframe for reviews to be published and I will aim to review within that time.

Choutt Blog

Bonjour Everyone!! I am Virginie aka LaChouett and welcome to my blog. I am one of those “curious” reader and will not stick to just one genre. I enjoy reading well established authors however I have really enjoyed receiving pieces from unknown writers that I have provided with an honest review in return for their gift.

My Reading Corner

After enjoying reading many fantastic book blogs for some time now, I thought that I would finally take the plunge and start a blog of my own. This blog is going to be purely for fun and somewhere to keep all my bookish thoughts and reviews in one place. It will mainly be about books, but there may well be some other snippets too, for example photos of favourite places I come across on my travels creeping in.

Snazzy Books

This blog is mainly to share books I’ve read, whether good or bad, along with other stuff I think is interesting or worth recommending. As well as reading lots I love crafty stuff, make up, fitness, shopping and delicious food. I decided to start this blog mainly because I noticed a lack of blogs about adult fiction in general, compared to many blogs focusing on Young Adult books. Now that I’ve got more deeply into the blogging world I see there are actually lots of amazing blogs focusing on adult fiction, but I didn’t realise that when I started this blog! Still, what’s one more eh? 🙂

Book Lover Worm

I am a book lover and reviewer. I’ve always loved reading and remember the joys of reading the Famous Five, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. I prefer crime fiction and psychological thrillers but also have a soft spot for chick-lit and women’s fiction and anything else that catches my interest.

So you want to find a book blog?

If you’re a voracious reader, you might think of a book blog as an oasis in the middle of the desert: a place on the Internet that brims with talk about books, books, and more books.

Well, good news — we built this directory of the 200 of the best book blogs to satiate your thirst. Take a walk around, use the filters to narrow down your search to blogs in your preferred genre, and feel free to bookmark this page and come back, as we do update it regularly with more of the best book blogs out there. 

If you’re an aspiring author, you might see a book blog more as a book review blog: a place where you can get your yet-to-be published book reviewed. In that case, you’ll be glad to know that most of the book blogs in our directory are open to review requests and accept indie books! We expressly designed this page (and our book marketing platform, Reedsy Discovery) to be useful to indie book authors who need book reviews. If you’re wondering how to approach a book blog for a review request, please read on. 

You’ve found a book blog. Now what? 

Let’s say that you’re an author, and you’ve found a couple of book blogs that would be perfect fits to review your book. What now? Here are some tips as you go about getting your book reviews:

  • Be sure to read the review policy. First, check that the book blog you’re querying is open to review requests. If that’s the fortunate case, carefully read the blog’s review policy and make sure that you follow the directions to a T.  
  • Individualize your pitches. Book bloggers will be able to immediately tell apart the bulk pitches, which simply come across as thoughtless and indifferent. If you didn’t take the time to craft a good pitch, why should the blogger take the time to read your book? Personalize each pitch to up your chances of getting a response. 
  • Format your book in a professional manner before sending it out. Ensure that your manuscript isn’t presented sloppily. If the book blogger asks for a digital ARC, you might want to check out apps such as Instafreebie or Bookfunnel. 
  • Create a spreadsheet to track your progress. Wading through so many book blogs can be troublesome — not to mention trying to remember which ones you’ve already contacted. To save yourself the time and trouble, use a simple Excel spreadsheet to keep track of your progress (and results). 

Looking to learn even more about the process? Awesome 👍 For a detailed guide, check out this post that’s all about getting book reviews
