Interesting blogs about books are gaining more and more popularity among readers. It is thanks to them that we are able to discover new products on bestseller shelves. What’s more, reviews written on blogs sometimes make new books more or less read. The creators of book blogs are people who approach the subject in an interesting and unique way, thanks to which they reach a wide range of readers, as well as gain their trust and sympathy.
What book blogs are noteworthy? What makes each blog different from others? I invite you to familiarize yourself with the list below, which takes into account the rankings of well-known platforms.
“I like books more than people”
A very important factor that affects the popularity of a blog is its regular maintenance. Thanks to this, as it works on any social networking site, more frequently displayed content also reaches users more often and has a better chance of gaining their recognition – and this entails the possibility of sharing the content found on the blog with other potential readers. Among the literary genres, detective stories clearly dominate.
In addition to strictly a book blog, the author runs a related instagram, facebook, twitter and youtube channel. It is impossible not to mention that the person dealing with the blog pays special attention to grammar, spelling and punctuation – of course it is completely understandable, because such pages are visited by people who read a variety of literature on a daily basis – from dramas through comedies and tragedies, ending with fantasy and popular science books.
The blog is run by Jarosław Czechowicz, a graduate of Polish philology. You can find ambitious literary works, reviewed and analyzed in a professional way. The blog is divided into labels indicating the literature of particular nationalities – from Polish, German, Italian, to more exotic ones such as African, Indonesian or Georgian. The blog has a relatively long history, the author has over a thousand reviews and has been active since 2007.
Mr. Czechowicz has developed a very recognizable brand – to the point that many Polish publishing houses include his reviews in book cover descriptions, or regularly invite the author for interviews. The author of the blog is an educated person, as a consequence, he is well aware of what elements to pay attention to when writing such a blog. In addition, he knows how to interest the reader so that he returns to writing in the future.
“Less than 100 words”
The author of the blog came up with an idea that attracts crowds of readers – she describes the items she reads briefly, to the point and concisely. The very name of the blog indicates a short length of the review, which is undoubtedly an advantage, especially if we are not looking for deep analysis, but only want to quickly learn what topics the reading touches on and decide (or not) to read it. In the description, the author herself defines her website: “a literary blog for busy people”. Unfortunately, the blog’s activity has been severely limited recently, but it does not change the fact that you can still find a lot of noteworthy content and reading inspiration on it.
“Qbuś devours books”
Book blogs are not just a great place to post reviews. Just like the author of this blog, on the occasion of the articles you can get acquainted with the theory of literature and many curiosities about the entire “non-fictional” world, publishing house or writer. We will find here many unusual comparisons and colorful terms that work on the imagination of recipients, thanks to which they are even more willing to visit the website. Particularly noteworthy is the entry on… not translating book titles. Other articles, on the other hand, introduce the theory of literature.
Unusual ideas are definitely another advantage of this blog. It is certainly one of the websites worth visiting. However, this is not surprising if we consider how much interesting content we can find there.
“I am obsessed with books”
Another blog that is definitely worth considering is the blog entitled “I’m obsessed with books.” It is worth being aware of the fact that it has become more and more popular recently, which is understandable if we consider what content there is. The aforementioned site deserves a special mention. Unfortunately, the published materials are not the most common, which can be bad news for fans of this type of content.
Lesser-known, but classic items that were published several decades ago are also promoted there. Karolina, the author of the blog, adds most of her content on her Facebook page. The main site, however, is constructed very professionally, looks interesting in terms of visuals, and at the same time navigating it does not cause any problems. This is probably why it is so common among fanatics of good literature.
