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:
- 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!
- 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!)
- 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.
- Fantasy Faction– because, all the interesting and cool things.
- SF Signal – because, ditto the above!
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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)
- 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:
