I've been blogging for a while, and mostly I jot down my reviews and mostly I read fantasy. For me it's a hobby, and sometimes I think I should take blogging more seriously and have a schedule and scheduled posts and be all organised. But...I'm not. I'm a bit chaotic in how I approach blogging. However, I've met a ton of great people over on Twitter and through blog-hopping, and I'm very grateful for all the connections I've made.
I'd like to list a few of these people, because they've been supportive and I enjoy reading their posts.
Greg over @ Greg's Book Haven reviews a lot of interesting books and I always enjoy his discussion posts, and every Sunday he posts inspiring graphics that I, very often, pin to one of my Pinterest boards for future writing inspiration. Greg also talks movies and TV, and I've not been disappointed by any of his recommendations thus far.
Esme blogs @ The Weatherwax Report and she mostly reads indie published fantasy authors and as a lover of fantasy her blog is a wealth of information. She put together a tool called TBRindr where reviewers who like fantasy can find indie authors who are looking for reviewers.
Danielle over @ Books, Vertigo & Tea writes thoughtful reviews and often makes me smile.
Elle blogs over @ Keep on Reading and there's anime, YA and fantasy among other books, and I make a point of visiting her blog at least once a week. She's instrumental in making my anime to-be-watched list grow.
Kristen reads a lot and she reads a lot of fantasy and sci-fi, and I always enjoy her reviews.
Di over @ Book Reviews by Di has been there from the start, supporting me, checking up on me and always with kind words of encouragement. Well written reviews, lots of YA to make my tbr pile grow. She's got an artistic eye and her photos are always beautiful.
Amy blogs over @ A Magical World of Words. Amy writes and often shares bits from her work in progress and her inspiring Pinterest boards. She also offers a lot of discussion posts which are very thoughtful. In particular, I enjoyed the ones tackling romanticised abuse.
Uma over @ Books, Bags, Burgers has been someone I've connected with from the start and has always taken her time to comment on my blog. She reads and reviews a lot of YA and her posts are always making me smile (and also fill my tbr pile with more books.)
Daniela has also been someone I've met at the very start. Daniel always has encouraging blog posts, inspiring posts and spends a lot of time talking about her writing. She's a positive and warm person and I enjoy her blog a lot.
Tanya blogs over @ Girls Plus Books and I've enjoyed her comments and posts for a long time now. Lots of romance and always very thoughtful reviews that make me want to dive into romance more.
Verushka is someone whose presence I highly value on Twitter, always tweeting interesting articles. Her blog is filled with great reviews and various, diverse genres.
Suzanne is over @ the Bookish Libra and reads many genres. I enjoy the thoughtful reviews and she's a very kind and supportive person.
Lindsey blogs over @Lindsey Reads. She reads lots of different genres, but often reads fantasy, which is my favourite genre, so, of course, I'm a regular visitor.
Obviously, everyone knows Net Galley, Goodreads and Book Riot.
Then for sci-fi and fantasy specifically, I've got Tor, SF Book Reviews, SFF World, Fantasy Book Reviews.
I worry, that I've forgotten many of you, and there are so many of you, and I love reading your comments and visiting your blogs, and I do hope, I won't spend the rest of the day jumping every five minutes, muttering, 'Oh! No!" as I remember bloggers I should have included.
Anyone who wants to find me on Twitter where I try and find a balance between some politics and social issues, lots of books, and pictures of my dogs, I can be found here @Vinjii
