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.


Let me know what some of your favorite blog post were from January and feel free to share the blogger love! 😀

This month I have MANY discussions posts to share with y’all but I there’s also plenty of excellent reviews and recommendations! Please check all of these posts and other posts from the bloggers as well! Also feel free to drop in your own posts from this month and I will go check them out!


REVIEWS

Dani @ Perspective of a Writer reviews one of my current favorites, the manga series, The Ancient Magus’ Bride, Volume 3-6. Highly recommend this magical series, especially if you are wanting to get into reading manga. PLUS Dani also reviewed yet another fave manga series of mine, Yona of the Dawn!!

Becky @ Velvet Spade Reads reviewed The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein, a most anticipated fall release of mine!

Breanna @ Paws and Paperbacks wrote a lovely 5 star review for Blanca & Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore. I can’t wait to read this one!

Utopia State of Mind wrote a short and eloquent review for Sawkill Girls. Another anticipated fall read! Sounds like I’ll LOVE this one.

DISCUSSIONS

Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm asks if un-relatable characters affect your feelings on a book and it’s one of those questions where everyone will have a different answer and opinion on and I think discussion posts like these are so insightful and engaging!

Merline @ Merline Reads talks about book subscription boxes and her issue with them and I AGREE SO MUCH. I’m so indecisive about them and I’ve only gotten one but I’m so cautious.

Meaghan @ Words Gremlin talks about art theft, which while isn’t a book topic, its a VERY IMPORTANT discussion that needs to had. Also to go along with using FREE resources for your blog instead of stealing,

Alice @ A Reader’s Fiction discusses reading multiple books at once or one book at a time. I agree with both ways of reading and I’m honestly trying to figure out which one is still the best way for me to read, efficiently.

The Bookdragons made a very useful post for a book blogger like myself about some blogging do’s and dont’s! I think this is amazing advice for new and expert book bloggers alike!

Jayati @ Junky Writing gives tips on how to read faster! Such a helpful post! Especially since I have a big TBR coming up for October! Another post from Jayati that y’all should check out as well, discussing the importance of best friends in YA.

Elaine made a wonderful list of Bookish Websites to use to help organize your library! I discovered LibraryThing because of this post and I LOVE AND APPRECIATE IT SO MUCH.

Rachana talks about 5 things book lovers struggle with! Such a relatable post! 🙂

Here’s an informed and insightful post about the struggle of an international book blogger from Inside My Library Mind. Please check this out post out even if you aren’t an international blogger. I think its good to understand the frustration that specific book bloggers face concerning ARCs, galleys, book boxes, etc.

Sophie @ Sophie’s Corner talks about being an organized mood reader (which unfortunately I don’t fall into that category but I wish I was a more organized mood reader!) I found this post to be very helpful when it comes to my own reading “style”

FALL/AUTUMN READING RECOMMENDATIONS

There were quite a few bloggers that made some amazing recommendations lists for fall reading, so check these out if you are looking pumpkin spice up your fall TBR (oh dear god please @ me in the comments for making that awful pun, it was bad)

Kristin Kraves Books’s Fall Book Recommendations

Aurora @ Aurora Librialis shares 10 books for Autumn Reading. I picked up An Enchantment of Ravens because of this list!

Melanie @ Mel to the Any has some wonderful recs as well! I have many of these on my TBR already. They all sound so perfect for this time of year. I love that this list is a mix of magical realism and spooky stories.


Thanks to everyone who checks out these posts by fellow book bloggers! These are my favorite posts to make and I can’t wait until October to see what y’all write up next!
