Summer Reading: Blogs


Summer is here which means I, and many of you, get to catch up on lots of reading. Rather than writing out a list of ten billion books I think you should all read, I thought I’d do something a bit different and talk about some of the blogs you absolutely must check out over the summer.

1. Gingerly Pale

I’ve only recently found Gingerly Pale but Jess’ blog has quickly risen right to the top of my list of favourite blogs. I check Gingerly Pale several times a day to check for new posts and I really do think I’m a little bit obsessed. As it’s only a recent find, I’ve really loved reading through all of her older posts and I don’t think Jess has ever written a post not worth reading!

Jess is so inspirational and as we’re both teenagers I find that I can relate to her so much more. There are gorgeous pictures, beautiful and emotional text, and regular posts too – a bonus!

2. Books of Amber

I kind of hate Amber’s blog and that’s for one reason: I can’t stop by without wanting to buy every single book she mentions. Amber must have magical powers, because whenever I talk to her or read her blog I seem to lose all reason and MUST. BUY. ALL. THE. BOOKS.

Amber’s blog also has a really awesome design and is super easy to navigate. Well worth a read!

3. Through a Cat’s Eyes

Over the last month or two, I’ve become totally obsessed with Cat’s blog. With a mixture of posts about her life, books and other awesome things, I’ve kind of turned into Cat’s little stalker. Cat is way, way awesome and is a blogger I would like to shout to everyone about. You need to go and discover the awesomeness of Cat’s blog right after reading this post, please! That’s an order.

4. Hardcore Heroines 

Tilly, who runs Hardcore Heroines, is seriously one of the best people ever and is so lovely and cool and awesome and ALL THE POSITIVE WORDS! I would really love to be Tilly’s bestest friend and I was in the same building as her the other week and I had no idea which makes me incredibly sad. I could read every single one of Tilly’s posts over and over again. Seriously.

5. The Bibliomaniac

Not only is Georgia one of the kindest and most loveliest people you will ever meet, she puts so much work into her blog and it really pays off. Recently, one of the things that has made me frequently visit her blog is to take a look at her wonderful book photography. She also does brilliant graphic reviews of books, which makes a nice change from your typical review.

I really trust Georgia’s opinion, and I’m more likely to buy something if I know she’s read, reviewed and loved it.

    I’ve only been actively blogging for a month, so I don’t really have any favourite blogs yet. I just go through my Bloglovin’ feed every morning and click on the posts I’m interested in. Will be checking these out!

    I seriously don’t need any more blogs to follow (so I don’t know why I clicked on this post at all…latent masochism perhaps??) but I legitimately just followed ALL these blogs. Well, to be fair, I was already following Through A Cat’s Eye but all the others were fair game. I seem to collect blogs much like I collect my books: “OOOH SHINY – I need it.”

    But seriously, thanks for the suggestions 🙂

    Aw, thank you so much! My whole reason behind starting my blog was to force books upon people, so I’m glad it’s working on someone. I’m… sorry? Not really 😀 You’ve made my day <3 I'm off to check out a couple of these other blogs now.

    I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M ON HERE <3. You know I love you and your blog Lucy, it's no secret 😉 I'm so sad we didn't get to meet as well :'( STUPID PHONE. I was going to tweet you but my internet wouldn't work. I swear I saw a glimpse of you but it was really fast and I wasn't sure. ONE DAY WE WILL MEET.
