6 Blogs

Originally I was going to share my six favorite blogs, but that was too hard a task. Then a thought came to me…. Voilà!

Listed below in no particular order are six blogs that I enjoy and want others to discover.  If you aren’t stalking them you should be. All of these book blogs have owners who uplift the community, comment, visit and post regularly. Grab a cold brewed coffee and check them out.

Carole’s Random Life in Books

Carole's Random Life in BooksCarole @ Carole’s Random Life in Books is fairly new to me blog and I adore it. Carole has been sharing her passion for the written word since 2013 and like myself has an eclectic taste. She loves romance, urban fantasy, and thrillers. Be still my heart. Her reviews are spoiler free and offer a fair assessment. While she isn’t active on Twitter, she visits blogs frequently and comments back.

Lampshade Reader

Lampshade-ReaderAleen @ Lampshade Reader is fairly new to the blogging world and began blogging in March of 2016. Like me, Aleen has an eclectic taste only hers expands into Manga and Graphic Novels. Her reviews are informative but kept spoiler free. She also shares fun discussion posts like comparing book covers and her latest book boyfriend. Aleen is active in the community and makes an effort to uplift fellow blogger and comment.

I Wish I Lived in a Library

I Wish I Lived In a LibraryKatherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library is a mystery lover from the classics to latest thrillers. She occasionally dabbles in romance and loves to share cozies. I enjoy the way she breaks down her review from what drew her to the title, to whether you should grab a copy for your own. She hosts 52 Pins a Pinterest challenge, loves foodie books and cookbooks. She actively participates in a discussion meme each week and I always enjoy how she approaches each question.

Geybie’s Book Blog

Geybie @Geybie’s Book Blog always has a smile and is so passionate about the books she reads. Her blog was established in 2016. She reviews a little of every genre but is heavier on romance.  A lot of her TBR pile comes from other bloggers. I am proud to say we influenced her into reading The Others Series by Anne Bishop. I appreciate how she breaks down her reviews and shares her opinions and excitement.

Hot Listens

Hot ListensHot Listens is run by a few wonderful ladies. Loupe, who has taken a sabbatical and  Melanie is currently the primary blogger, but Sophia Rose recently joined. As you may have guessed you will find audiobook reviews at Hot Listens. What I love is the diversity of genres that they bring to the table. Hot Listens, hosts a yearly Audiobook Challenge, one I am happy to co-host. Melanie and Sophia Rose are both active in the community and quick to answer a question or lend a hand.
