Notable Blogs

I always love to come across new (to me) book review blogs. There are so many out there that are doing such a good job and I want to share some of these with you. So, occasionally, I will be telling you about these in posts entitled Notable Blogs. I hope you will visit these blogs and when you do, please tell them I sent you!

One of my favorite book bloggers is Carrie at Reading to Know. Carrie has "book reviews from a Christian wordview". She writes like she is talking to a friend over a cup of tea. Although I haven't met Carrie, I feel that she and I would get along very well together. I would love to meet her some day. Her blog is fun to read and I always find good book recommendations there. I want to be a blogger like Carrie when I "grow up"!

Another blog I love to read is Miss Remmers' Review. I like what she says on the header of her blog: ". . . to instill in students a passion for recreational reading". Miss Remmers is an English teacher who started her blog to tell her students about good books. This is how she describes her "mission": "I am constantly looking for a wide range of books to put in my classroom. My teaching philosophy is this: While I enjoy the 'classics' as much as any one else, I want to instill in young readers a passion for recreational reading. The only way to do this is to find books that students want to read, that they won't be able to put down, and that will leave them begging for more." Isn't that cool?

Do you know of other good book review blogs that you enjoy reading? Let me know in the comment section!

I also really love Miss Remmers' Review! I'm partial to teacher's blogs since they're really useful to me in my career and they tend to focus a bit more on literacy and engagement.
