These are the blogs you’re looking for…



Every Tuesday over at the  The Broke and Bookish we all get to look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  The topic this week is:

‘Ten Bookish People You Should Follow On…’

Far be it from me to tell you who to follow but I figured I would use the force anyway and compel you all!   Here are ten blogs that, for different reasons, may capture your attention:

  1. The Classics Club – I know that I don’t need to explain this one – get thee over there and read some Dickens (or Austen).  Culture darling. Culture!
  2. Rinnreads – who runs a sci fi event every year that is great fun and helps me to read more sci fi which is slightly out of my comfort zone.  Who doesn’t want to be uncomfortable (ahem, challenged!)
  3. Over the Effing Rainbow – because – the Lovely Lisa (it’s an official title) is always organising lots of readalongs that are great to get involved in and they’re all easy to follow on Goodreads so simple to get involved with. Easy peasy.
  4. Fantasy Faction– because, all the interesting and cool things.
  5. SF Signal –  because, ditto the above!
  6. Little Red Reviewer – like the Jedi Master of finding books for me to want to read.  Managed to avoid the dark side (just).  ‘These are the books you’re looking for!’  Plus Vintage Sci fi : so the whole getting out of your comfort zone again.
  7. Books by Proxy  – Friday Face Off.  If you love book covers this gives a great opportunity to focus on some covers.  Book tart over here!
  8. Breaking the Spine – Waiting on Wednesday – great weekly meme where we all get to rave about the books we’re looking forward to.  And. I.  Do.  Mean.  Rave.  Let loose people.  Let loose.
  9. The Speculative Herald – yes, this is a great new blog with all the latest and most uptodate book news (and the fact that I occasionally contribute has got nothing to do with my mentioning it here, no sirree, no self-serving nonsense, not from me, nope…okay, you got me, maybe a tad)
  10. Leaving this blank for you all to fill in!  Suggestions??

And, because this is a very sort of dry, in terms of colour and pics, TTT I thought we should have a silly picture (which reflects all of us and what good buds we are) so:

    I am following some of these blogs and they truly deserve to be on your list. 🙂 My suggestions are in my TTT list. 😀

    What a great list! I will definitely keep an eye out for these bookish people! 🙂

  3. curiousdaisy

    I suggest my own blog because why not hehehhe. Happy reading!

  4. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    Great! Some new places to explore! 🙂
    I know a few of them, but there are enough… new entries to satisfy my curiosity!
    Thanks for sharing.

  5. DJ (@MyLifeMyBooksMyEscape)

    With the exception of The Classics Club, I subscribe to all of these too! 🙂 And it’s not a blog, I guess, but – I love that one.

  6. Summer @ Xingsings

    Ah, love this! I’ve actually never heard of any of these so I’ll be taking a look later. And love the last blank. Really creative! 😉

    I don’t only judge a book by it’s cover… but I do love to admire the pretty art!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Absolutely! The content is the most important thing after all but the cover is the first thing that draws your eye and I love good artwork.

    Thank you! 😀 I definitely need to get me some Classics Club. I read so many last year but 2016… only one so far! Shocking.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Well, I’ve only read about 9 off my list in total. Which is why I’m revising my list! Not making it easier but maybe changing some of the books to one I’m really keen to read rather than feeling like they’re books I should read.
      Lynn 😀

      • proxyfish

        That’s definitely a good idea. Most of the books I’m ‘meant’ to read I invariably find disappointing when compared to the books I usually love! Going for more obscure and comedic classics seems to work better for me 😀

      • @lynnsbooks

        You should join in – you can choose your own level and take your own time – plus they have regular monthly questions and spin lists – but, more than that, checking out your books I think you already enjoy reading classics so it would probably be a cinch for you.

      • proxyfish

        It does sound great. I’ll definitely have to compile a list! – And I do so love compiling lists.. and the inevitable failure to complete them! All part of the fun I suppose!

      • @lynnsbooks

        Lists are so good! You could make a list of all your lists!!
        Lynn 😀

  9. Joey @ thoughts and afterthoughts

    I feel like Fantasy Faction is where all the cool SF-F kids hangout and I’m just on the outside looking in via Twitter stalking.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – I’ll join you and we can peek in at the window together! We can be the FF stalkers.
      Lynn 😀
