Favorite Blog Posts of April 2019

I’m back at it with some favorite blog posts. I know it’s been a while but I’ve been wanting to start these posts back up because they’re my most favorite to write up.


It was Autism Acceptance Month in April and here’s some bloggers that talked about autistic representation in books and some recommendations posts for books featuring positive rep.

Becca’s Book Realm wrote up an eloquent and thoughtful post about good and bad examples of autism rep and gave some good recommendations. I think this post is something many people should keep in mind when reading books featuring autistic characters, especially if you are not autistic. Always look for #ownvoices autistic reviewers.

Lorryn @ Reading Parental shares some books with autistic rep as well.

Aline @ Fully Booked also has a great list of books with autistic rep.


Malanie shares 8 stress free books to read, because we all need those kind of books in our lives.

Need some more F/F books on your TBR? Of course you do and here’s The Book Corps with a great list.


I know for myself it’s been a difficult journey in finding my voice for my blog and it’s still a work in progress for me. If you’re in the same predicament as myself you should check out Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books post about to be your best blogging self. Filled with helpful tips and positivity.

Xandra @ Starry Sky Books has some great tips for bloggers out there, whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been blogging for a while, this post is worth checking out.

Another blogger sharing some great blogging tips for starting bloggers is Mandy @ Book Princess Reviews.


Biblio Nyan wrote a personal and sentimental post about how libraries helped with treating their mental health and just the power of libraries as self-care. A powerful post that resonated with myself and hopefully others find this post to be so impactful.

Heather @ Books, Trust, and Pixie Dust created a gorgeous moodboard for You’d Be Mine which was one of my favorite reads from April. This mood board sets the exact tone of the story.

Aurora @ Aurora Librialis is starting a little series of post called The Female Gaze Project which will engage with and highlight stories about women, created by women in a series of blog posts. and for her first post she discusses Mothers and Daughters. Just a brilliantly articulate and insightful post. I can’t wait to read more of this series.

Aline @ Fully Booked discusses how there’s biases in boosting diverse books and talks about how important for more books that are intersectional and advocate for them.

Favorite Blog Posts of January

Here’s to another year full of amazing bloggers and posts! This is somewhat late but here it is!

Savvy The Book Royal talks about reading with anxiety and depression and it felt so validating to hear from someone else who goes through the same experiences.

The Caffeinated Bookworm Life shares some blog posts ideas for a whole month of blogging. So useful and I’m so grateful for this post.

If you’re looking for anxiety rep, Reading Parental has a whole list of books with anxiety rep for you!

If you need some journal inspiration here’s a few bloggers sharing theirs:

Books, Trust, & Pixie Dust created a gorgeous moodboard for one of my favorite fantasy reads from last year, Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa. She also did a fairy moodboard which is just as stunning. I adore these aesthetics.

Novels and Waffles recommends some books for 20-somethings (like me) looking for NA books written in YA style. I’m honestly just here for NA to become a much bigger thing.

Aurora Librialis talks about being a bad book blogger and why it’s ok. Number 1) I just want to say that Aurora is an AMAZING book blogger!
Number 2) This post is super validating and there’s a lot of great advice here.

Ace of Bens compares hardback and paperback covers and I love comparing different covers of a book.

2019 is not short of wonderful covers and here’s Motif by Tanya sharing some cover love. I love the diversity in this post.

Sun and Chai discusses femininity in YA in great depth and highlights many of the issues I have sometimes with female characters in YA such as weaponized femininity and the not like other girls tropes.

Starry Sky Books created The Folk of the Air Book Tag! I can’t wait to do it sometime because I am LIVING for this series.
