This month, I decided to add another new feature to my blog. One of my favorite parts of blogging is being involved with the amazing book blogging community. They are the most accepting, supportive, and wonderful group of people, and I love being able to talk about books with other people who are just as obsessed as I am. So I decided that, each month, I would feature a few of my favorite posts by fellow book bloggers. It’s an opportunity for you to check out some blogs that might be new to you, and read some great posts you might have missed. I hope you enjoy this post – let me know if you think this is something I should add to my monthly rotation.
Do Character Deaths Have to Be Meaningful? by Kourtni at Kourtni Reads. I think this is a brilliant discussion post, and posits an interesting question that I think most readers ask themselves at some point. Do character deaths have to be meaningful?
Let’s Talk: When are you classed as a ‘reviewer’? How do you decide which books to review? by Ashleigh at A Frolic Through Fiction. I love Ashleigh’s discussion posts, and this one was great! It explored what it means to be a book reviewer, and the many different ways in which you can review books or decide to review books. Personally, I review books if they’re sent to me for review as well as books that I read on my own and want to share my thoughts on.
Ramblings | Should re-reads count towards your yearly Goodreads goal? by Michelle at Book Adventures. I found this post really interesting, because I haven’t been able to make up my mind about this. Re-reads don’t automatically count towards the Goodreads reading challenge, unless you specifically add a different edition. I don’t really like doing this, but I will once in a while. If you’ve asked yourself this question, or, like me spent hours trying to figure out if you can count a book twice without adding it again, this is a great post to read.
How I’m dealing with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by Sarah at Commas and Ampersands. We’ve all heard about the controversy surrounding Cursed Child. I actually loved it – my review is here – but so many people didn’t. I loved reading this perspective from someone who saw the play before reading the script, since I’m not sure I’ll get the chance to see the play performed live.
The One Where I Disagree with Everyone by Orang-utan Librarian. Which could be titled: the one in which standard writing advice is debunked. I loved this post, because we’ve all heard this advice in some form or another, but, in my opinion, writing advice is not one-size-fits-all.
How to Control Your TBR Pile (And Stay Alive Which is a Pleasant Bonus) by Cait at Paper Fury. This is one of those rare posts in that is both super practical and ridiculously funny. I loved the blend of humor and helpfulness, especially since I am buried under a TBR pile that has reached titanic proportions and I have to laugh about it or I will cry. If you have the same problem, you should probably read this post.
