I read and review primarily YA fiction. I make exceptions to that rule, mostly for middle-grade and adult crossovers, historical mystery/romances, crime, and other genre fiction. I do not review self-help, inspirational memoirs/Non-Fiction, erotica, or medical texts.

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.

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 blogsย 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.ย 

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.ย 

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

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.ย ย 
  • 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.ย 
  • 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.ย 
  • 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).ย 

Looking to learn even more about the process? Awesome ๐Ÿ‘ For a detailed guide, check out this post thatโ€™s all about getting book reviews.ย
