10 Blogs to Check Out This September

Another Book in the Wall

Kelly has an exuberant personality that makes all her reviews seem incredibly exciting.  She reviews a lot of fantasy and YA, but also writes a wealth of discussion posts that tend to generate a lot of conversations in the comments.

Charlotte’s Library

Charlotte is one of those rare bloggers who reviews middle grade books–and she writes wonderfully detailed reviews.  She also does round-ups, so if you’re on the lookout for even more bloggers who love MG, she’s a great resource!

Death by Tsundoku

Jackie is an engaging blogger who reviews an eclectic mix from YA to classics to adult literature.  She’s also incredibly friendly and supportive, and always ready to delve deeper into the conversation in the comments.

Grab the Lapels

Melanie has an eclectic blog, where you can find reviews ranging from memoirs to literary fiction.  Her reviews are deliciously lengthy and detailed; it’s evident she has thought a lot about each of the books she discusses.  And she’s always ready to continue the conversation in the comments.

Greenish Bookshelf

Jane’s thoughtful reviews include classics, YA, children’s literature, and historical fiction.  She’s always positive and friendly.

Luke Shelton

Luke is currently blogging through The Lord of the Rings, sharing his experiences and thoughts on the work.  He also publishes posts on other readers’ experiences with Tolkien.  It’s a very cool project, one that Tolkien fans won’t want to miss out on.

My Comic Relief

Michael writes incredibly intelligent, descriptive critiques of comic books and comic book films.  Even if you don’t read comics, there’s a lot to enjoy here.  Michael provides enough context for everyone to follow along and his voice is engaging, much like having a friend enthusiastically share his thoughts with you.

Nut Free Nerd

Holly’s thoughtful reviews include everything from fantasy to classics to YA.  They are delightfully long and detailed.  She also just finished a great series on her experience studying abroad.

Of Maria Antonia

If you like classics, children’s books, historical fiction, and beautiful photography, this is the blog for you.  Really, it’s like a bunch of the best things ever all in the same place!

Unputdownable Books

Nandini’s writing always comes across as friendly and cheerful.  She loves J. R. R. Tolkien, which is obviously a mark of her incredible literary taste, but she also reviews a lot of other fantasy and writes lively, intelligent discussion posts.

    Aww. Krysta! I’m so touched that you included my blog here! You and Briana are honestly two of my favorite bloggers so it means so much to me that you enjoy my blog! ❤️❤️

    I suddenly feel like a rock star. 😍

    Two weeks ago I started a new job, but once I get my stride I plan on doing more discussion posts. I have a lot to work with thanks to the list you folks put together! And the books I’ve been reading lately don’t leave much scope for the imagination, so that’s another hiccup!

    I second Unputdownable Books! Nandini’s posts are always engaging and thoughtful, and deep down she’s such a sweetheart. I also like how she consciously chooses diverse reads (especially books set in Asia or a fictional, Asian-inspired setting). One of my favorite posts by her was one on the current publishing industry in India. Did you read that one, too?

    Thank you for putting together this thoughtful list — I was recently going through my browser bookmarks and was sad to discover how many blogs I used to enjoy have either changed focus to a not-for-me subject or have disappeared into the ether. I’m so happy to see these new-to-me books blogs to check out!


    • Krysta says:

      I go through my list every few months and I realize I am following bloggers who haven’t posted in 8 months! I usually end up unfollowing, but then I do need to find new blogs to follow. It seems to me that many book blogs don’t last long. Or, as you say, I begin following for one reason, but then they start posting content I am not interested in.


  5. Michael J. Miller says:

    Aww, wow, thank you so much for the inclusion! It also makes sense as I’ve seen traffic coming from your blog lately but not necessarily to any specific post you’ve linked or I’ve shared on your Sunday Exchange. Now it all makes sense :). And I have a bunch of fun new blogs I’m going to spend my afternoon exploring. Thanks for that too!
