Bloggers who Deserve more Attention

Hello! I wanted to do this post a few days ago, in honour of my 3 year bloggiversary, but it’s been a crazy week so I’ve not been blogging nearly as much as I wanted to (annnd I’m totally not breaking my new rule of not apologising all the time, just explaining a little 😉 )

Anyway, I mentioned the other day that I owe a great deal of thanks to the lovely Zezee for basically discovering me as a blogger! If you’re not following her already- what the hell are you doing!? In honour of what she did for me, I decided to share some people’s blogs. Now obviously *everyone* on the blogosphere deserves more attention, but that would’ve taken a bit too long, and while there’s loads of blogs I talk about a lot, and who you should already be following, I think there’s a few that don’t get nearly as much attention. So without further ado, here’s some bloggers you should definitely check out!

Fran Laniado– so Fran is great at keeping up with memes, but that’s not why I love her blog! The best thing about Fran is that she reads so many different books that not a lot of other bloggers are talking about. This makes her lists very thoughtful and stands out a lot. If you’re really interested in classics and literary fiction, like I am, then I highly recommend checking her out! Plus she’s highly intelligent and has some great writing discussions that I very much enjoy.

Cameron Graham @Here be Wyverns– not only is Cameron *super smart* and his content realllly detailed and interesting (really recommend his discussions on mythology– it’s phenomenal!), but I gotta say, he frequently makes me laugh and is absolutely hilarious. So head on over there and say hi to his dragon Ivan!

Lucinda is reading Lucinda is just lovely, sweet totally approachable, really funny and very clever. Her review style is always so varied and tailored specifically for the book! Every review is unique and interesting. Plus she reads a great variety of books so you can’t go wrong! Plus, she agrees with me about not liking Gormenghast, so she must be amazing if she’s on the same page as me there 😉

K L Kranes– I had to include her just for how *awesome* her discussion pieces are- seriously, if you’ve not checked out some of those- you are seriously missing out! They’re really thought-provoking! She talks about writing, reading, grammar, tv, travelling and tons of other things.

Eva O’Reilly– Eva has done something on her blog I could never do: a lot of daily content! I am always so impressed when people blog every day or nearly every day, but what makes Eva more impressive is that her content is often profound and strikes a relatable cord for any writers out there! She talks a lot about writing, life, and just check her out okay!?

Joelendil’s Kingdom of Books– I really love the type of books that Joelendil reviews (a lot of classics and SFF!) and he always gives such a clear picture of his impressions and what to expect. Plus, there’s the added bonus of his reviewing  the type of books that aren’t the run of the mill books you see on the blogosphere.

Lost Art of Reading– speaking of reviews, I had to include Lost Art of Reading on this list, simply because she always writes such top quality, thorough reviews- particularly on books you might never have heard of otherwise. Plus, she’s really friendly and great to chat to!

Simply a book drunkard– Milou does such a fantastic variety of content, it’s hard to pin down a single reason why you should go follow her! Her reading is eclectic and if you’re into sci fi/fantasy and graphic novels in particular, then she’s definitely someone to check out 😀

Wordaholics Anonymous– I really can’t mention Milou without giving a shoutout to her other half as well! I highly recommend you check out both regardless, because he does really interesting reviews on fantasy books, has cool music taste and shares some of his awesome poetry.

Angelica @Dreaming of Fiction– Angelica runs a really varied blog and I think this comes from the fact she’s completely unique on the blogosphere- I mean, I defy you to find another geeky opera singer in training! So her content is a mixture and I really enjoy reading about her bookish and music tastes!

Bookwyrm Knits– if you’re into discussions, reviews and weekly memes, then you’ve definitely got to hop on over to Bookwyrm Knits (and I know most of you answered yes to all of those 😉 ) Plus, she also shares her knitting WIP, and I know from my Reverse Q&A that a fair number of you are knitters, so you should definitely have a look! 😉

And that’s all for now! And because I want to spread the love around a bit, I think it would be great if you could share some more bloggers who deserve more attention in the comments!

    What a wonderful post. I have started checking those blogs out and a am looking forward to discovering some new bloggers. It’s so thoughtful and kind of you to be spreading love across bookish community, love it! ❤️

    I enjoy reading many blogs and don’t want to forget some if I start naming them off the top of my head. But I want to start giving all those wonderful bloggers whose work I enjoy more shout outs – it’s such a great idea! 👏

        Oh no, it was not meant as criticism. I though you showed a lovely list of bloggers! ❤️ It’s more to do with my terrible memory, I just struggle remembered blogs’ names. I think I create a list.. yes, that will solve it and I my inner organiser will be happy. 😂😂😂

          Oh no worries- I didn’t think it was- apparently I just have a hypercritical internal monologue going on and was feeling bad about not making it longer LOL! 😂😂😂 (sorry, probably TMI 😉 😂😂) Totally get that!! hehehe! 😂

        *blushes* shut up monkey features ☺️!

        So I’ve written a complicated review of 13 Reasons Why and I’m trying to be sensitive about all the problems I had with it regarding mental health whilst also explaining why I hated it. Was worried I hadn’t pitched it right then decided it wouldn’t matter because no one reads my blog then you recommended it to your 3 million followers and now EVERYONE is reading it. Aargh!

        Ps totally, utterly grateful to you for mentioning me – just thought you’d find the timing amusing 😂.

          hehehe!! 😂 Lol well I’m confident it’s gonna be great and also I don’t have anywhere near that number of followers, so you’re totally safe 😉 Also I don’t like that show/book, so I’m looking forward to checking that out (I don’t think it handled the issue very well personally) so I’m pretty confident I’ll agree with you 😉

          hehehe! 😂

    You do a really good job of shouting out for people. I still remember when you plugged my blog and I ended up getting my first ever 100+ views in a day. That was a big moment 😀

    So I applaud you for keeping track of folk and doing these kind of posts. Since I already follow several of them, I can honestly say you have good taste too. And thanks for the bunch of other bloggers to check out too. I’m in need of a couple of people to follow after making some cuts last month, so this is perfect…

    Oh, this is nice!! And made me aware of the fact that I didn’t follow Milou’s blog yet! And I’ve read so much about her, following Wordaholycs Anonymous^^ I changed that now haha

    Bookwyrm Knits is one of my favourite blogs as well 🙂 Nicole is great, I love her knitting AND she’s reading pretty cool books.

    I am going to check out the others now

    Good thing you’re doing here! I remember doing it when I had like 10 followers so it’s definitely a wonderful feeling when someone as awesome as yourself gives recognition to others for their equally as awesome selves! 😁

    Aww man! Thanks so much for the shout out! 😀 I’m all late to the party (it’s been a crazy busy week for me too) but I really appreciate it and am glad your blog keeps growing and growing and more peeps are sampling your awesome content! 🙂
