7 Book-Related Blog Post Ideas for When You Haven’t Read Anything Recently

Bookish Post Ideas

Need a post idea, but haven’t read anything recently? Here are some book-related post ideas for your book blog!

Movie and TV Reviews

Book-to-film adaptations come out all the time! If you have not read a book recently, why not review a film or a TV show that is book-related? And there are plenty of twists to put on this. You can talk about changes you liked (or didn’t), or do a “Who did it better?” type of post. You could even come up with your dream cast for an upcoming adaptation, if you do not have a film ready to review.


Game Reviews

Books can inspire more than movies. If you enjoy playing a game that is book-related–anything from a Lord of the Rings board game to a Nancy Drew video game. Or, if you do not want to do an entire game review, you can do mini reviews, lists of recommendations, or even a reflection on what playing a certain game has meant to you. You could even come up with a list of your dream games, or books that need games!

Collection Tour

Show off your bookish merch! Highlight special editions, beautiful covers, and cool illustrations. Or take pictures of some of your non-book bookish items–figurines, bookends, bookmarks, tote bags, T-shirts, whatever!


Recommendation Posts

Recommendation posts do not have to start with books. Try recommending titles for people who enjoyed a certain movie, TV show, video game, or music album.


Everyone loves a good quiz! Try coming up with a personality quiz or a trivia quiz based on a favorite book.

How-to-Read Guide

Are you a fan of a long or complicated series or franchise? Explain to readers how the series works. What is a good starting point? Do they need to read the books in any certain order? Or can they jump in wherever they want? (Such a guide will work for comics, too!)


Cover Commentary

Highlight several covers of one of your favorite books–then discuss. Do some work better than others? Are some completely off base? Which ones are your favorites and why?

    I usually find my inspiration by reading other people’s posts. There is always a subject or remark that triggers my attention. And when I find nothing to write about? There is always the cat!

    Cover Commentary is something I should try. I often think about writing different posts about covers but I don’t think I ever have. Right now my answer to the question of “What can I blog about if I haven’t read anything lately?” is just to write about those books I haven’t read, haha. I started today with all the 2021 releases I was excited about but haven’t touched yet…

      I keep thinking about doing a covers post, but I don’t think we ever have at Pages Unbound. But I love when other people do it! It’s funny to see the strange ones, but also great to see the beautiful ones.

      I also like TBR posts because they give me ideas for more books to read. Not that I need more books to read…

    All great ideas. I have been through some reading slumps in the past, and I completely stopped posting during those times. But it’s important to keep the content flowing whether you’re reading or not. I also think that the pressure of having a book blog is what made me fall into a slump in the first place. I thought I had to always be reading to have content, but that’s not the case at all.


  4. Books Teacup and Reviews says:

    those are good ideas. I like recommendation posts and now that I cannot read much or post much I must think about one. I recently like series reviews and I like adding those additional bits about what’s in all books, what’s different in them, and whether they can be read as standalone or not and which was better.
