There are lots of ways to find good books to read, but often my favorite books are the ones recommended to me by friends. And the next-best thing is a book recommended to you by a peer (who just might become a friend!). That’s why book blogs, especially book blogs written by teens, are a fantastic way to find new reading material. Below are some of my favorites:
Readers in Wonderland — a fantastic blog run by a duo, Alise and Bec. Bec is Australian, and she’s introduced me to some great Australian authors that I never would have read otherwise.
Books of Amber — Amber is British– another great way to expand your scope of authors and books.
She Reads She Blogs — Jackie hosts a lot of readathons– like a virtual book club. It’s a great way to discuss and hear other points of view (and also just freak out about great books you love).
Chapter by Chapter — A blog run by a mother-daughter duo provides two really interesting perspectives.
Clear Eyes, Full Shelves — Just straightforward, smart, well-written reviews.
Read on, and enjoy.
