Favorite Book Blogs if You Want to Up Your Reading Game

I've been blogging for ten years. I have many, many favorite book blogger friends out there.  I've met so many friendly, kind people.

Perhaps you'd like to make some new book blogging friends. Here's my list of book bloggers I visit frequently. Visit their blogs and leave a comment. Repeat. Repeat. You will quickly make friends with these wonderful bloggers.

Perhaps you are interested in upping your reading game. I encourage you to join the Classics Club. Simply make a list of fifty or more classics you'd like to try to read in the next five years and post it on your blog. Share your post with the Classics Club and you will be part of this great group. Classics Club bloggers dare to read intimidating books.

Here is a members list of those who have joined the Classics Club. Some of the Classics Club bloggers are people I've followed for many years. Take a look at their classics lists for ideas. You also may want to follow them, too. You might like to take a look at the Classics Club lists of those of the moderators of the club for great suggestions.

If you are curious, here is my Classics Club list.

Do you have any recommendations for me? 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.


  1. For some serious classics I suggest On Bookes.
    A blogger that has an impressive CV is
    Classical Carousel (....she is on a blogging hiatus at the moment but many good reviews in archive). Australian Journey and Destination is wonderful....she is a home-schooling mom with lots to schare!

  2. Those are new to me ones! Feeling like that will be a trend today!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  3. You've got some good suggestions here. Hope people will try them out. Yes, those of us who have been around the blogging world for a long time have certainly made some wonderful friends over the years, yes? Deb, I'm really happy with your new involvement in the Classics Club. Seems like a perfect fit for you.

  4. Makes my little paltry list seem even dingier.

  5. Wow, a lot of new online sites for me to visit!!

    Here's a link to my TTT post this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2018/08/top-ten-tuesday-favorite-book.html

    1. Thanks for sharing your favorites. I like the idea of a monthly gathering of books we loved. I wonder if that would make a nice post for Classics Club.

  6. Nice lists! Thanks for the mention. What? You don't read my blog all the time? Ha ha ha.

  7. Deb, The link for Books in Bloom is going to my page instead.

  8. I meant to join the Classics Club this year, but never got around to it. I have several on my shelves so maybe joining will give me the nudge/push!

    I have made so many wonderful friends over the years, thanks to all the great blogs I've discovered and I've enjoyed getting to meet some face-to-face now that I'm retired. Hopefully, I'll get to meet many more in my travels across the country. :)

  9. I should get back to reading classics. I still read a lot of children’s classics, but I think I burned myself out on the adult ones. I used to read a ton of them.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  10. I should look into Classics Club one of these days. :)

    Check out my TTT and celebrate my blogoversary with a giveaway

  11. Good list. I am too intimidated to join the Classics Club. Classics is not my favorite books to read, but I feel like I should.


Please share your thoughts.
