5 blogs about books that we absolutely love
Do you have a list of blogs that inspire you and that you read daily?
I am not talking about blogs that you follow because you think you "should", or because they set the trends in your niche, or because you know the blogger, or because OMG everyone loves them and shares them everywhere all the time! No, I am talking about real blogs, written by normal people, that inspire you and you enjoy reading them.
Over the past few years we've published some book suggestions posts that went absolutely viral. For example our 50 Books like Divergent post got about 90k repins on Pinterest, our 50 Books like 50 Shades of Grey is even more popular and still is one of our most visited posts of all time. The reason we think these posts were so successful is because we are very passionate about books.
Like everyone, sometimes we need to be inspired. We have a list of blogs that definitely do it for us. And we are not talking about these auto-generated book lists blogs that send you e-mails with their book suggestions every 10 minutes. We are talking about real blogs, with real people that post their honest reviews as soon as they finish reading their new book.
If you love books as much as us, you want to get inspired, get ideas and even improve your own book reviews you should go check these blogs.
