I've got to do a special shout-out for the first book blog I found, quite by accident:
Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers
This is a fun blog, with a cooking/kitchen theme that makes me hungry if I stop to think too long about it. Reviews and memes are posted with a fun style and there is always something interesting to be found.
Now, for a sampling of some of my other favorites, in no particular order (well, okay, the Librarian in me demands alphabetical order):
- Austenesque Reviews
Featuring reviews of all things Jane Austen - including sequels, prequels, variations, and giveaways!
- Chick Lit Reviews
Specializing in British chick lit (I confess, my favorite!), but also having American Weekends. A great place to discover new authors from 'across the pond' as well as new American titles too.
- Chick Loves Lit
Fun blog with a lot of YA titles and frequent author interviews.
- Confessions of a Book Addict
A lot of YA reviews, and fun giveaways too. Plus, for most of May, Christina's posts are a "kickoff summer" theme - loads of great beachy/summer reads!
- Luxury Reading
Vera and her amazingly prolific "staff" keep this blog updated with reviews like crazy. Also giveaways like crazy. Another of my first book blogs - and a great resource for readers!
- Passages to the Past
Historical fiction-focused only, and great giveaways. Need I say more?
- There's a Book
Danielle (who also takes care of American Weekend duty over at Chick Lit Reviews), and her two kiddies specialize in children's lit from picture books to young adult - and everything in between. Also featuring month-long spotlights of specific publishers, which is a great way to learn more about the industry. And giveaways. Lots of giveaways.
Books, pictures, cupcakes/recipes. Yup, Meg's got 'em all! Fun blog with book reviews interspersed with adventures and recipes. Love this one!
