Top Ten Tuesday: Book Bloggers You Should Follow

toptentuesday21

Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I’ve been meaning for some time now to put together a list of book bloggers who I think should have more followers than they do. So when I found out that this week’s topic is “Ten Bookish People You Should Follow On Social Media,” I jumped on it! Here are ten bookish blogs I love, and that I think you’ll like too.

746 Books

A blog in which the author, Cathy, attempts to read all of the 746 unread books she owns. She’s read and reviewed 114 already, so there’s plenty of time to start following along. Besides those 746, Cathy also writes about new and classic Irish literature.

The Edge of the Precipice

This blog includes reviews, read-alongs, and other fun stuff. Plus, the proprietress is a huge fan of Shakespeare in general, and Hamlet in particular. A woman after mine own heart.

The Golden Echo

This blog covers everything from poetry and Christian monasticism to Captain Kirk and “raging hippopotami.” Seriously, follow it.

Majoring in Literature

Sara is always good for reviews of both classics and bestsellers. She sometimes even turns her critic’s eye to films as well.

My Lady Bibliophile

Schuyler (a.k.a. Lady Bibliophile) is great at giving in-depth reviews of her latest reads, which tend toward classic fiction, historical fiction, biography, and practical theology. Every now and then, she’ll write about her favorite authors too, like Charles Dickens and J. R. R. Tolkien. Lots of good things there.

The Oddest Inkling

A blog dedicated to snatching the works of Charles Williams, one of the Oxford Inklings, from the jaws of obscurity. Almost anything you want to know about this author can be found here.

A Pilgrim in Narnia

Billed as a blog about C. S. Lewis, although the author Brenton also writes about the other Inklings and authors like Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett from time to time.

Stories and Soliloquies

Besides book recommendations and “mini-syllabi,” Michelle’s blog is also great for finding articles on philosophy, mythology, and metaphysics.

The Vinciolo Journal

Matthew Rettino, the author of this blog, is a writer, a poet, and an Inklings scholar. He’s written book reviews, essays on Charles Williams and Neil Gaiman, and a defense of Christopher Marlowe as the first hipster poet: basically, this guy writes some of everything.

Vintage Novels

One of the first book blogs I starting following and also one of my favorites. While the main purpose of this blog is to review of vintage novels, it also includes reviews nonfiction, poetry, and modern novels from time to time, along with the occasional essay on the nature of art. Fun stuff, that.

And if you know of any book blogs that you would especially like to recommend, let me know what they are in the comments.
