Top Ten Tuesday: Some of My Favorite Book Blogs & Websites

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book blog meme now hosted by Jana over at The Artsy Reader Girl!

This week's topic is: Favorite Book Blogs/Bookish Websites

My first thought when I saw today's topic was 'oh crap,' becase how am I only supposed to pick ten blogs and/or websites? I love all the blogs I follow--that's why I follow them! I've listed some of my favorites below (I did not stick to just ten), and just know that even if you're not on this list, if I visit your blog regularly then you should be, but I couldn't put everyone! I have only a couple websites, a few booktubers because I love watching booktube (and SO many more than I'm including in this list), and the rest are bloggers! I tried to keep my commentary on each one brief because this list is too long already. :)


Goodreads has its issues, sure, but at the end of the day I really do like using it. I enjoy being able to keep track of my books and also see what other people are reading and talking about.

 I have really grown to enjoy the community over on the Fantasy subreddit. THere is a lot of awesoe discussion, plenty of fantasy authors that hang out, and a lot of maturity and respectfulness. It's a great place to discover new books, share what you've found, and have great discussion.

I love historical fiction and Sarah from Reading the Past always shares some of the best! Her reviews are always beautifully written and she's always sharing historical fiction book lists with different themes, which I love.

There are always some awesome reviews and interviews featured over at the Fantasy Book Critic blog, so it's easily one of my favorites in regards to fantasy fiction!

AJ from Read all the Things has such incredible wit and writing that is reason enough to follow her, but she also talks about some great books! She puts in a lot of work and I have always loved all of the content she creates.

Angela from Musings of a Literary Wanderer always has some great thoughts on so many books. I love visiting her blog to see what books she is talking about next.

Paper Fury is another one of those bloggers with such a strong entertaining  voice that I don't even care if I like the same books as her. She always has something hilarious and sarcastic to say, so I'm always glad to see a new review or post from her. She just recently published her debut novel (hooray!) and has been sharing some really great tips and insights about her own journey.

The Quill to Live has some great taste in fantasy if I may say so myself, and I am always particularly looking forward to their reviews.

I've only recently discovered Tammy's blog, Books, Bones & Buffy, in the past couple months or so and I can't believe I never came across it before! I love her reviews, which are always really in-depth and insightful, and I just love seeing everything else she posts. 

Greg from Greg's Book Haven is another awesome blog that I always love to visit. From reviews to weekly memes that feature both books and movies to discussion posts, there always something awesome to check out. I've put a lot of books on my TBR because his blog!

Elliot Brooks is one of the sweetest Booktubers I think I've ever seen (even though most Booktubers are). I love listening to her talk about many genres of fantasy (including YA and adult), which is her main topic of discussion, and she's also getting ready to release her first novel! I've been lucky enough to be one of her beta readers and I am really enjoying it. 

Book Roast is incredible. She's a huge Harry Potter fan, so she has a lot of Harry Potter-related book boxes and video ideas. If you've ever heard of the OWL or NEWT readathons, she's the one behind them. Outside of Harry Potter, she's always reading or doing something interesting, so I always have a fun time watching her videos.

April has such an eclectic taste in books and I love watching all of her videos. She seems like an awesome person with a rather quiet demeanor that comes across so well. 

Connor is a really nice guy who mainly talks about fantasy! I love hearing his thoughts on different books and topics, and I appreciate his thoughtfulness on everything he discusses.

I don't really read many of the same types of books as BooksandLala, but I also don't care because I just love her and her videos. She is one of the most creative content creators and always has something interesting to share. I love that she includes her husband and son so much, as well!

Well, those are some of my favorites! Do you follow any of these booktubers/blogs? What/who are some of your favorites? Let me know, I'm always looking to discover new content!
