Looking to Connect with Book Reviewers

  1. My site, The Mad Reviewer, is a book reviewing blog in which I review one YA book per day. I would like to connect with people who love reading as much as I do. I'm also looking to meet people that I can exchange comments with. So, are there any other bibliophiles out there?

    The blog I need help with is carrieslager.wordpress.com.

  2. Although I'm a photographer, I have a few reviews on my blog:

    http://laplumenoire.co.uk/literature/

  3. I checked out your reviews and many of them are on books I like to read. I'd be happy to exchange comments with you, if you want to.

  4. Thank you. I'm always looking for great fantasy books to read. Suggestions are always welcome.

  5. A suggestion for your site. You could categorize your posts according to book genre.

  6. Okay, if you want to read fantasy, here's one: Graceling by Kristin Cashore It's a really, really good book. I have a lot of reviews on urban fantasy (that seems to be the trend now in YA fiction) as well as some science fiction, if you're interested.

  7. Oh, thanks for the suggestion! I'll get right on that.

  8. Thank you for the recommendation. I will look into it.

  9. There is also Lori's Book Nook, although I don't know how much she's taking on lately: http://loricat.wordpress.com/

    Hi there,
    If you are into it you can use global tags searches to locate other WordPress.com bloggers who publish book reviews.
    http://en.wordpress.com/tag/books/
    http://en.wordpress.com/tag/book-review/
    http://en.wordpress.com/tag/book-reviews/
    http://en.wordpress.com/tag/goodreads/

  11. Thanks for the link, raincoaster! The site is a bit cluttered for my liking, but it's still a good site.

    timethief: I've already used global tags, but I don't want to seem pushy to other reviewers. Maybe I'll give it a try again.

    Realtionships develop online just as they do offline. We visit and say a little (comment) and the other visits our blogs and says a little (comments) as we become acquainted. In time we become more closely acquainted and have more meaningful comments to leave. When we compose posts of our own we may backlink in them to directly related blog posts in the blogs of those we are becoming acquainted with. If we feel those blogs are good resources we would recommend to our readers/subscribers then we link to them in our blogrolls.

  13. Okay, fair enough. Thanks for the advice!

  14. My blog: jmcartee.wordpress.com reviews books. The site that I now write for: skfancast.wordpress.com also does book reviews. Weheartreading.wordpress.com also does book reviews.

  15. I checked out your blog jmcartee and am now following it by email.

    There are over 25 million and very few ever post to these forums at all. Here are the Google search results for:
    book reviews site:wordpress.com

  17. Once again, thank you very much, timethief! I appreciate the help.

  18. I have a Book Review page. I don't read a lot of YA books but I have a 12-year-old son who is a voracious reader. He's always looking for something new.

  19. Thanks for the link! Some of the books on your site sound exactly like what I read on my own time. If your 12-year-old son is looking for new reads, I'd recommend these books for him:

    1. Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins (especially if he's already read The Hunger Games)

    2. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

    3. The Alchemyst by Michael Scott

    That's just to name a few. I have different categories that he can search through, depending on his interests. I hope he finds some worthwhile reads!

  20. He's read The Hunger Games but I'm not sure about Gregor the Overlander. He read Artemis Fowl and The Alchemyst last week.

    Obviously, you know your YA fiction. I'll have to take a look at your other reviews and see what he hasn't read yet.

    Thanks!

  21. No problem! I love my YA fiction and have read most of the big names in the genre. If he's read The Hunger Games, he'll love Gregor the Overlander. As a plus, the ending is slightly happier (if not 'happy' by most people's standards).

    There aren't that many YA books aimed at boys. I think he might like Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. I've read it (but not reviewed it) and it's actually a pretty good book that the movie doesn't do justice to. Of course there's also the classic Harry Potter series, but he's probably already read that!

    Many YA books are aimed at girls, but then again, I'm pretty biased as that's all I read for a while. I'll try and see if I can put up more reviews of books boys would enjoy as well.

  23. loverofgreatbooks: I checked out your blog and I have to say it's very nice (except it takes a long time to load).
