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.
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.
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.
Sara is always good for reviews of both classics and bestsellers. She sometimes even turns her critic’s eye to films as well.
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.
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.
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.
Besides book recommendations and “mini-syllabi,” Michelle’s blog is also great for finding articles on philosophy, mythology, and metaphysics.
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.
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.
