This November we’re celebrating some of the books bloggers we’re grateful for by featuring a new one each week and sharing 5 things we love about their blog.
“Chasm of Books is a blog specially dedicated to science fiction and fantasy novels and operated by Stephanie B. Chasm of Books seeks to find the best fantasy and science fiction to be enjoyed by young adults, preferably starting with Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings (but I’ll take what I can get).”
Stephanie Loves JRR Tolkien As Much As We Do
Stephanie co-hosted a Lord of the Rings Read-Along in 2014.and has also been a great contributor to our biennial Tolkien Reading Events. She hosted her own read-along for The Hobbit and regularly gushes about Tolkien on her blog and on Twitter.
She Also Loves Fantasy
Chasm of Books is all about featuring great fantasy and science fiction–two of our favorite genres here at Pages Unbound! Stephanie’s blog design nicely ties in with the fantastical content of many of her posts.
She Posts Unique Book Discussions
In addition to posting book reviews, Stephanie features some great discussions about individual books. I’d love to see more bloggers go this direction into analyzing more specific aspects of books, rather than only writing discussions post about large-scale topics like “the fantasy genre” or “romance in literature.” A couple of my favorites include Boromir’s Defense and 6 Bravest Acts in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pt. 1.
She Keeps Up with the Publishing World
If you haven’t been keeping up with general publishing news, Stephanie keeps you covered with her feature Publishing in a Box.
Finally, Stephanie is Super-Friendly
Stephanie always leaves thoughtful replies to comments left on her blog and is willing to chat on Twitter. (She may also be one of about three people who check out our Facebook page now and again). She’s a great friend to have in the blogging community!
