Notable Blogs

I'd like to to introduce you to some of my online "friends". These book review blogs are ones I have enjoyed reading and I often find books to add to my TBR list.

Linus' Blanket: - I like how this blogger reviews books, especially the creativity she shows (see June 29, 2010 post - Lost vs. Rowan The Strange: A Nerds Heart YA Showdown - for an example). I have added many books to my TBR list after reading this blog!

The Crowded Leaf: - First of all, I love the header on this blog. The pictures are so peaceful and beautiful. And I always see new books I have not seen before. Alayne seems to have the same tastes in books as I do.

Homespun Light: - Probably the best part about this blog (except maybe all the great baby photos!) is the reason Emily started this blog. She says: "I started this blog where anyone can recommend books as long as they are free of sex, profanity, and graphic violence." I admire her for doing this. Although I don't agree with her religious views (she is LDS), I like reading her reviews.

Book Chase: - Most of the books that Sam reviews are ones that I would not normally pick up and read. However, I love reading blogs like this, bacause they stretch me and expand my normal reading boundaries, which, I think, is a good thing. I don't want to be caught in a rut. I believe I learn so much more by being an eclectic reader.

Please visit these blogs. And, could you share with me some book review blogs you have found and like to read? I always enjoy "meeting" new "friends".
