I challenged myself to read 50 new-to-me books in 2010 and keep a record of what I read and what I thought. My reviews were taking over my personal blog so I decided to start one solely dedicated to books. I review everything I read and I'll read pretty much anything recommended to me!
Book to the Future is more than just a blog: it's a journey through time. For the next two-and-a-bit years, I'll be reading and reviewing one book every week, risking life and limb to read great works of literature in the year they were first published. My journey began in the year 1900 - every week since, I move forward one year in the future, reviewing a book that first hit the shelves in that year. Confusing? Possibly. But if you like reading, time travel and nice, hot cups of tea, you'll love Book to the Future.
Australian book blogger and reviewer, living on Ngunnawal Country in Canberra. I love to chat here about my favourite books from kids through YA and adult, with a focus on Australian books and authors
The latest book news and reviews from the Australian book scene
Book blog that specialises in book reviews, discussions about books and contemporary publishing, and writing and blogging content. The blog was founded in 2013.
I'm a writer and a reader and I blog about all things books. A lover of historical fiction and Australian writing, I read a range of genres including contemporary fiction, memoir, non-fiction, crime, children's, middle grade and YA fiction; and I like to participate in reading challenges to widen my scope.
Jess Just Reads is a book review blog for all literary genres, from young adult to the classics.
Keeping Up With The Penguins might be for you if:
You’re scared your Tinder date will ask you about your favourite book, and you’ll be forced to confess you haven’t read anything new since Harry Potter
You quickly excuse yourself to the bathroom when people start talking Brontë (you’re pretty sure there’s more than one of them, but you’ve got no idea which is which)
You want to give classic literature a go, but every time you Google “which classic should I read first” it returns a stack of books you’ve never heard of and overwhelms you with academic analysis
You’ve been stuck reading the one genre for years, and you either need to find something new or download your 800th poorly-formatted $0.99 Kindle e-book
You don’t mind having a laugh at a millennial’s attempt to wade through the literary canon of popular and classic fiction
I’ve crafted a list: 109 books that I’ve never read (even though I really should). It’s a motley crew, a kind of cross-breed of the Dymocks 101, the Guardian’s top 100 books written in English, and a handful of personal recommendations. Many are classics, some are a little more obscure – so it’s quantities known and unknown. I'll be reviewing them one by one.
The title Knowledge Lost was adapted from the title Paradise Lost by John Milton. I decided on this title to symbolise the fact that there is so much to learn and so much knowledge out there that previously was lost to me. As I discover and learn new things, I realise there are so much more to learn so this blog keeps growing and growing. A few years ago I started Literary Exploration as a dedicated book blog, I did this because my passion was always book blogging and I felt it would be a good idea to have this blog separate to the rest of my blogging.
Book reviews and other reading related content.
Book reviews and recommendations of a self confessed book addict. I focus on mainly on reviews of books written by Australian writers, due to my work as an editor on The Australian Women Writers Challenge.
I’m a Canadian book lover who’s working my way through as many countries and books as I possibly can. I’ve recently moved to Melbourne, Australia from London, UK with The Englishman and can’t say for sure which country I’ll be living in a year from now. I sell books by day and read/eat/run voraciously by night.
I’m a reader, runner and traveller (not necessarily in that order). So this blog will probably contain musings on all three. First and foremost, I want this to be a book blog. After being inspired (read: pestered) by my boyfriend (henceforth known as The Englishman) and a fellow bookseller/lover (Tsudokinst), I’ve decided to join the book blogging community – a community I’ve been a happy voyeur of for many years now. I’m hoping to use this blog to keep a more lasting and meaningful record of the books I’ve read along with connecting with fellow book-lovers. Enjoy!
My Reading List: A Bookcrosser's Love of Reading ... And Other Book-Related Things.
This is what the title says, and normally, it's pretty much what I do. I talk about books and reading, bookstores and other book-related things that go along with just about anyone's reading list... to make my reading list yours. It's very much a nice read and I ask my public questions to keep them with me - to encourage them to comment, but I don't get many who do. I guess I have a shy crowd. My Reading List is also translatable... making it easier for anyone in the world to plug into it.
