Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Book Blogs/Bookish Website

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This weeks topic is all about the showing love to your favorite Book Blogs/Webistes & I just LOVE this with all my 🖤!!! I have so many book blogs & book tubers as well that I go to for my daily fix. Lately its been a lot of Booktube cause life has been so unbelievably hectic but Book Blogs are my 1st true love! This past week I’ve been easing my way back into blog hopping & realize how much I’ve missed it all so this is the PERFECT time to show some love & also maybe interest you in following some (or all 😂) of these wonderful bookworm/content creators 💓

*These are in no particular order & it pained me to keep it to 10 cause I LOVE YOU ALL! 

August 14th: Favorite Book Blogs/Bookish Websites

🖤 Melanie @Meltotheany

Melanie is one of my FAVORITE people I’ve met through Book Blogging & hilarious Voice Notes! I really enjoy buddy reads with Mel & seeing her Fantasy recommendations, chances are if they have her seal of approval…I’m most likely going to love it hence why she’s my Book Twin, we don’t come across many of those in a lifetime so when we find one, we show them love! also, Mel has a keen eye for trigger content so you can always count on her to list them in her amazing reviews before venturing into something you’re feeling a bit hesitant about💓

🖤 Danielle @BooksVertigoandTea

This post couldn’t possibly go up without Danielle who is one of the sweetest & first Book Bloggers I came across when first joining this community. Danielle reviews a variety of genres & I can always count on her blog to find something new that may have possibly missed my radar.I LOVE her reviews of Tor Novellas and Sunday Wrap-Up’s. Most of all, Danielle is just one of those people you meet & just know THIS is a good human being 💓 Danny is on a break at the moment,sending her all the love & positivity💓

🖤 Larkin @ WonderfilledReads

Larkin, I have to meet this human one day! 💓 Not only does she get my humor but she reads all the books I stare at on my shelves (including Book of the Month 🙈) for no good reason other than my book buying addiction 😂 Larkin is probably one of the few book bloggers I know who really keeps up with Fantasy series and finishes them giving you well rounded reviews individually & as a whole. She also has AMAZING audiobook recommendations, I will NEVER tire of thanking her for getting me to pick up The Serpent King by Jeff Zetner 💔 Larkin also shares my love for all things Sci-Fi is overall just a pleasure to interact with 💓

🖤 Beth @ ReadingEveryNight

Beth 💓 my Book Twin in the U.K. who I trust whole heartedly & just know she would never steer me wrong with her wonderfully insightful reviews 🙌🏼 Beth like Danielle (see above) is also one of the first Bookworms I met in the Book Blogging community & the MOST welcoming! She is SUPER interactive with her subscribers and leaves such thoughtful comments that always bring a smile to face no matter when/where I’m reading them. Beth reviews YA books across all genres & also has some of the most beautiful travel posts/photos which she pairs with books! Beth can also bake & I’m just here waiting for those posts to come through 🤞🏼😂💓

🖤 Flavia @ FlaviaTheBibliophile

Ok Y’all! Guaranteed you all have that 1 blog you follow cause everything they post is just SOOOOO damn BEAUTIFUL!💓 Flavia’s Book Reviews, Beauty Hauls, #ARCstravaganza posts are LEGIT *Hearts in your eyes*  swoon worthy content!There’s honestly a little something for everyone & I just love visiting her blog cause it’s always a good time!Flavia is a sweetheart & is the friend to fangirl with you over books & movies any time!

🖤 Amy @ ACourtOfCrownsandQuills

Amy! The Book Gods made our paths cross & ever since then I’ve been blessed with some amazing Buddy Reads 💓 Amy also reviews YA Fantasy & a variety of other genres. We tend to have similar opinions on books & she also runs one of my FAVORITE Instagram accounts! which I personally go to for unboxings 🤗😍

🖤 Heather @ TheSassyBookGeek

Heather 💓 I’ve always wanted to know a Heather & then this wonderful human came across my blogging journey 😆 haha! I mostly read ARCS & that keeps me in the know of what’s coming to shelves in the near future. It’s not often I come across someone with a TBR that makes me sweat a little but heather’s does cause it often looks like mine & is a reminder that I NEED to get to reading STAT! Heather also reads across genres, has amazing reviews, and pulls no punches which I always appreciate when looking for recommendations💓

🖤 Taylor @ NerdNarration

Taylor 💓 all it took was for me to find her Nyxia by Scott Reintgen review & I just knew I had to befriend this beautiful Bookworm! They say I write some enthusiastic reviews for books that I love but Taylor got me beat! 😂 I love reading anything she posts because her personality bursts right through in her words, humor, and GIPHS! Taylor recently won my ARC Giveaway for Dear Evan Hansen over on Instagram & made my day getting her excitement through DM’s 🙌🏼😂🙌🏼 Nothing but positive vibes from Taylor’s corner 💓

🖤 Ashley @ SociallyAwkwardBookworm

Ashley 💓 Besides being a real sweetheart & having the most AMAZING cats with tons of personality & a dog I can’t get enough of! Ashley keeps me humble 🙈😂 She always has a set TBR with attainable goals & finds EPIC book deals on Kindle! LEGIT she is my #GOALS 💓 Ashley also loves photography & I love seeing the photos she takes, always vibrant & make me want to be better at my IG game 😂

🖤 Kelly @Kelly’sRambles

Kelly 💓 I LOVE Kelly’s blog & the fact that when I’m on the go, I can always count on her mini-reviews, Bookish event re-caps, & let’s face it…I’m always curious about her TBR cause not only does she read good books but at times they’re ones I haven’t heard of & she’s in the UK so the cover always pulls me in…I can go on & on but really don’t take my word for it & see for yourselves 😉

I’m currently working from home & this post has been a labor of love but I am SOOOO glad to have participated in this week’s topic! I even got on Instagram & posted a story on my appreciation for this community of Bookworms that have always been here for me when I really needed it 💜 10 is not enough to thank all those who faithfully like & comment my posts & just generally brighten my day! I love you all & hope to continue on this blogging journey for years to come 💓

    1. Of course I’d include you Amy! ❤ ❤ ❤ I'm also very happy to have met you here & hope to continue our chats about all things really haha! Hope you had a safe trip & that you have a great little vacay 🙂


  3. Oh my gosh, Lilly, you fabulous lady! Thank you so much for the kind words! I’m so glad we’ve become blogging friends. I just love how I can always trust your bookish opinions because we basically have the exact same taste! I have to admit I’m a bit behind right now on my Book of the Month reading though, hahaha. I do plan on reading one soon though! Maybe I should let you pick which one so I don’t have to try and decide on my own lol!

    Also, yesssssss we have got to meet in person one day! I do plan on making another trip to NYC (possibly for BEA next year) and we should definitely try and get together when I do!!!

    1. You’re so very welcome but they’re so well deserved! I love your blog & getting all of your insight on books that I have every intention of getting to lol! My Book of the Month shelf continues to grow with amazing books but its also my biggest shame smh. I need to read Seven Husbands ASAP among others haha!

      I would definitely be down for a meet-up next year so you just let me know, I do think I will be attending BEA next year as well. Books & Drinks! ❤ ❤ ❤

      1. Awww, thank you so much! I have to say that I canceled my Book of the Month subscription because it felt like I was just hoarding the books and not reading them. I may resubscribe once I get through all of these,h haha!

        Yayyyyy! Sounds like a plan to me! 🙂

      2. I’ve considered it & may still do so if the selection for September is as meh as August. I just love that you can add a book for $9.99 that otherwise you’d have to pay full price for 😂 SMH the way my mind works 🤷🏻‍♀️

      3. Yeah, I just wasn’t as interested in the choices this year as much and couldn’t justify spending the money.. I’ve now just turned my focus to preordering everything lol! But I totally agree, adding a book for $9.99 is such a good deal!!


  4. Ahhhh Lilly! Thank you so much! ❤❤❤ I was totally going to make one of these posts, and you were on my list too of course, but then I ended up getting distracted by other things / feeling down and like a I didn’t end up writing and much less publishing the post. This means so much to me though. Seriously! ❤❤❤

    1. Thank YOU Flavia! you have been such a blessing since meeting you & also the reason for my blog having a touch of beauty with my Butterflies haha! ❤ ❤ ❤ I almost didn't make this one cause narrowing it down is such a task but it turns out that I did have 10 that are my Go-to's even if I'm not always able to blog hop/comment cause of my running around. Thank you for your friendship! 🙂

      1. I know what you mean! Picking 10 was difficult! And I’m mad at myself because I didn’t even post the list after all that effort haha. And ahhhh you’ve been such a blessing too! And thank YOU for your friendship!!!! ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

  5. Thanks so so so much for all the sweet things you said in this post Lilly. Honestly it put the biggest smile on my face! 🙂 ❤️ I love talking to you about books (and it seems almost strange how long we have been talking because it has been almost since we both started blogging right?) You’re one of those people whose opinions on books I whole heartedly trust too, and so many books on my TBR list have made it there thanks to your reviews! 😀
    You’ve featured some other incredible bloggers too, and the ones I don’t already follow I’m going to have to check out for sure. I’m always looking for new blogs to discover.
    Great post, and again thanks for featuring my blog. 🙂 ❤️

    1. Yes! I think you were just getting into steady blogging after trying a few other times. I’m so happy you found the book blogging community, you truly are a gift to us all & just someone I look up to here in the community. I know we’ll be gushing about many more fave books/authors to come & I can’t wait! The bloggers I featured are all people I admire & truly respect, I hope you find new faves 🙂

      1. Yep, that sounds about right, and yeah I’m so happy too because I’ve met so many amazing people through this community. 🙂 ❤️ Thanks do do much Lilly and yes I’m sure there’d be much more fangirling in our futures. 🙂


  6. Thank you so much Lilly I’m so glad to have met you as well on my blogging journey, also that’s too funny that you’ve always wanted to know a Heather, haha! Also let me know if you ever want to do a buddy read since our TBRs tend to be so similar, I’ve been meaning to do one with Melanie too and I know you guys buddy up for reads as well so hit me up! 🙂

    1. ABSOLUTELY! I’d love to buddy read with you & I’ll definitely have to check and see what I have on deck for September 💓 which is also the month when all the book release dates crush us 😩😂 if you ever see me post about a book your about to read, feel free to slip into my DM’s haha! Happy reading Heather 💜

  7. What booktubers do you like to watch? I watch a couple of them sometimes. I was so on the fence about doing this post, because I think it would have been so hard only choosing ten people, haha. Thank you for including me in your post! 😀 I am so happy that we’ve become such great friends through blogging and books! I love your blog as well and I am always looking forward to reading your posts every week. ❤

    1. Hey Ashley! OMG I honestly watch way too much of it cause it’s so easy to listen to in the background haha! Melanie from Meltotheany (up above) actually did her TTT with her favorite Booktubers and did 30 & honestly I had to laugh scrolling through it cause I’m subbed to each & every one of them (my TWIN!) haha! I def think you should check it out since it includes a variety of all genres & they’re from big tubers to small up & coming 😉

      Thank you for always coming by & reading, I appreciate it more than words and always look forward to interacting with you XoXo! 🙂

  8. Ooooo so many of the bloggers are new to me! I’ll definitely have to go check them out since you hold them to such a high regard.

    I already follow Danielle because she’s freaking awesome. I hope she will feel up to blogging again soon 😦

    Kelly also has a wonderful blog! I feel like she reads a lot of books that aren’t as mainstream… I appreciate that about her.
