Bonjour Everyone!! I am Virginie aka LaChouett and welcome to my blog. I am one of those โ€œcuriousโ€ reader and will not stick to just one genre.

I like to read different genres of books, both fiction and non fiction. If the blurb grabs me then Iโ€™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.

Bookangel started as a London bookclub's private site to swap book recs and highlight free books. It opened to other users a few years back after realising that there weren't many sites that focus on UK readers.

Books and Bindings specializes in reviewing FICTION, mainly women's fiction, spicy romances, cozy mysteries, some suspense, contemporary fiction, literary fiction, and some paranormal. But Empress DJ is not really a fan of horror or zombies. Zombies are just so tiresome โ€” they are horrible conversationalists and only seem to want me for my brains. Review requests outside these genres will be up for consideration.

We're always interested in hearing about new books, but even with a stable of writers across book blogs we can't get to everything. So if you'd like to tell us about something, shoot us an email. Before sending something for consideration, take a look around the site to get a feel for who we are, who our readers are, and how we go about things. Bonus points will go to submissions that have looked at our contributors and can suggest which contributor might be a good fit for the book.

Prior to starting Cracking the Cover I professionally reviewed books for the Deseret News, a daily newspaper in Salt Lake City. My reviews for Cracking the Cover are much the same. I pride myself on professionalism and believe every book deserves the same sort of treatment. I am somewhat selective about accepting review requests. Special consideration will be made for publicists/third parties that I have worked with before; authors I have worked with before; and if the title was one I was planning on requesting.

So you want to find a book blog?

If youโ€™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 โ€” 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 youโ€™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, youโ€™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 youโ€™re wondering how to approach a book blog for a review request, please read on. 

Youโ€™ve found a book blog. Now what? 

Letโ€™s say that youโ€™re an author, and youโ€™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 youโ€™re querying is open to review requests. If thatโ€™s the fortunate case, carefully read the blogโ€™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 didnโ€™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 isnโ€™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 โ€” not to mention trying to remember which ones youโ€™ve already contacted. To save yourself the time and trouble, use a simple Excel spreadsheet to keep track of your progress (and results).
