Book Blogs You Should Follow // blogs i love (part one/infinite)

This post has been a long time a-coming.

I’ve been meaning to start a series on here to highlight blogs I love on my long and growing list, so here she finally is, folks. Hopefully this will be a monthly feature because I’m pretty πŸ’© about doing tags and need another way to appreciate you all.

leslie knope’s approval, the highest honor?

Here is an incomplete list of book blogs that never fail to entertain me, make me think, or bring a smile to my face. Some I’ve been following for years, others I found recently, and while I mercilessly comment on a handful of them πŸ₯°, I remain a timid, silent follower of the rest lol πŸ™ˆ:

My blog is still a baby blog compared to some other giants so idk how much of a impact I make screaming over here haha, but hopefully more people find your blog! Also, I don’t know if you’re interested in writing your own book, but if you ever are lol, I’d pick it up in a heartbeat because I know the writing would be magical (not to be dramatic πŸ˜‚).

  9. Ohmygosh, Belle – I”m crying!!! 😭😭😭 Your praise for my little blog has honestly made like, my entire freaking life. I was so excited that I honestly called my parents up to tell them like the complete and utter dork that I am. #noshame.

    I was so lucky the day that you stumbled onto Reading by Starlight and left me a comment. Not only did it lead me to discover Belle Can Read and Bellecanread Youtube edition [FYI you’re video “Why I Love Science Fiction” is my favorite – I laughed so dang hard at the memes! “Why? Why? WHY?” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚] but I also found a new bookish bestie in YOU! Your comments always make my day and I love gushing over all things books with you. Your blog is such a positive, friendly environment and I love stalking your discussions and reviews.

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for the shout out – you are actually the sweetest. I am so humbled and honored to have been featured!

    Love, Alexandra xox

    1. HAHAHA Alexandra, that’s absolutely the best thing I’ve heard in ages πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­!! Your relationship with your parents is so great, and I love that you can call them up like that (please tell them that a weirdo from the States says hi!!).
      I’m so glad that I found your blog too, and that’s so nice for you to say all of that πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ’•! Oh my gosh, bellecanread YT edition is such a work in progress, and that means so much to me that you watched that video HAHA πŸ˜­πŸ’–. And I’m so happy that my blog is a positive place to you πŸ₯ΊπŸ’•.
      It’s really no problem, and your blog deserves any more readers I can nudge from my little space on the internet to yours hahaha ❀️❀️❀️

      1. It’s actually not an exaggeration when I say my parents are the best. I’m very lucky to be very close with my mum and step-dad so they already know like, EVERYTHING about my blog friends [or the weirdo from the states as you put it! LOL πŸ˜‰ ].

        I really admire your “work in progress” – it’s a huge deal to make videos for the whole world to see. Then there’s me, hiding behind my writing! Fun fact: before I started my blog I considered a booktube account instead. I even filmed a very CRINGE INDUCING video on my shaky camera then died at the sheer cringe of it all. It’s safe to say that I destroyed all evidence/traces of said video and created the blog instead. I admire that you have the courage [and technical skills} to pull it off! ❀

        And once again, thank you because you know what – I've just had an influx of subscribers! YOU ARE THE BEST! Sending you a BIG social distance approved hug! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

        Thank you so much for your encouragement πŸ₯ΊπŸ’›. Hahaha, it’s so strange talking to a camera and then having to watch yourself πŸ™ˆ!! BUT that’s actually so cool that you thought of starting a booktube first! If you ever feel comfortable enough doing it, I will be 10000% behind that πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½!
