My Fave Reading Blogs/Websites


What the blogger says:

I’m going to read all 100 of Times Magazines greatest English-speaking novels since 1923 (plus Ulysses). Robert Bruce

What I say:

This has got to be my favourite blog combining humour, a fantastic challenge and just right the blend of personable chat and excellent book reviews. Love love love 101 books.

rather be reading

What the bloggers say:

Almost 5 years ago, Estelle & Magan met at a wedding — where M was the photographer and E was a bridesmaid for her best friend’s big day. We talked about books for under five minutes, and a friendship was born.Since then, we’ve shared our love of books, Zac Efron, and shopping on this blog, changed jobs, had babies, moved, visited DC and Disney World together, and constantly stayed connected — despite the miles between us. RBR has been the our own version of a coffee date, our way to mark the time before we can hang out and gab in person again. Thanks for spending time with us.

What I say:

Rather be Reading is easy to navigate, looks good and has a nice chatty tone that’s fun and welcoming. I especially like Dive into Diversity as it’s all too easy for any of us to fall into the trap of always reading the same genre.

the indie view

What the website says:

There’s nothing I can find on the website to explain what it’s all about but “The 15 best book blogs to read in 2015”  webpage describes it in the following way:

The Indie View features reviews on new self-published e-books in a variety of genres written by close to 350 reviewers from all over the world (and Internet).”

What I say:

And about time too!  There’s so many self published books out there that any pointers towards the best of the bunch is welcome. I don’t know about you but I don’t always want to read books just because everyone else is, variety is the spice of life and all that.

Goodreads: Book reviews, recommendations, and discussion

What the website says:

Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers and book recommendations. Our mission is to help people find and share books they love. Goodreads launched in January 2007.

What I say:

This site is pretty damn good with an absolute ton of content and a layout that’s so easy to navigate it’s sickening. It’s got me questioning the whole point of my existence on this blog to be honest but hey, I’m having fun so I’ll continue.

vulpes libres Vulpes Libres

What the website says:

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

What I say:

A bit different this one in that it’s made up of many different contributors with a real eclectic range of interests. Humorous and varied, this is a site that could have you browsing for hours and in my case considering reading books that I would never normally pick up.
