In November 2016, we shared six of the blogs were were grateful for and five things we loved about each one. It was a popular feature, so we’re bringing it back this May, featuring some more bloggers we hope you’ll visit and love, too!
I bet you are all surprised to see that an orang-utan can manage to use a keyboard, let alone run a blog about books. Well, prepare to be amazed, because I’ve barely got started yet. Ok enough aping around. Please insert the usual disclaimer about all opinions being my own here. Also try not to take offence at any of my brutally honest opinions. Yada yada yada, etcetera etcetera. So without further ado (*drumroll please*) I hereby declare this virtual library open.
She Posts Interesting Discussions
I love book reviews on blogs, but I also love discussions–interesting discussions that get people talking in the comments. The Orangutan Librarian posts topics that generate conversations and often lead me to look at things in new ways. Check out her post on whether we should review nonfiction here.
She Loves Fantasy
Fantasy is one of our favorite genres here at Pages Unbound, and we’re always thrilled to find other fantasy fans. Here, the Orangutan Librarian shares her top ten favorite fantasy books, including Tolkien and Garth Nix!
She Speaks Her Mind
She’s always respectful, but she’s not afraid to share her opinions on books and bookish topics and to blog in a unique style that makes her blog one of my favorites.
She’s a Star Commenter
She replies to every comment on her blog (well, as far as I know…I haven’t really checked every comment), and I often see her commenting on other blogs, adding to the conversation and supporting the community.
Finally, She Reads Chaim Potok
Potok is one of my favorite authors, up there with Tolkien and L.M. Montgomery, and I think he doesn’t get nearly as much love as he deserves in the book blogosphere. So I am super excited that the Orangutan Librarian has read and reviewed several Potok books, including most recently In the Beginning.
