My favourite blog posts of June 2018!

I’ve seen a few people doing posts like this recently and I really like the idea of showing some love for fellow bloggers so I wanted to make a contribution too! I won’t be able to keep up with a weekly post like many of you amazing bloggers do but I will try to do a round-up at the end of each month, highlighting blog posts I’ve loved that month!

So here’s what I hope will be the first of many ‘favourites’ posts! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Reviews

Joanna @ Bookneeders gave a glowing review to The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton. This is a book I’ve been wanting to read for some months now but still haven’t got my hands on – Joanna’s review makes me want to go out and buy it tomorrow!

Cat @ Tack Fiction wrote a wonderful review of The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman (you guys know how I love him). She raises some really interesting points and now has me itching to reread this one!

Rachel @ Pace Amore Libri wrote a great balanced review of The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock by Imogen Hermes Gowar. Rachel’s reviews are always so eloquent but I particularly enjoyed this one focusing on a book I’ve been interested in for a while.

Jenna @ Bookmark Your Thoughts wrote a fantastically detailed review of Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young, a YA Viking-inspired tale that I would love to read!

Tina @ Reading Between the Pages gave a great, succinct review of Jar of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier. Lately, I’ve been reading a lot more thrillers than usual and I like the sound of this one with its multiple perspectives.

Zuky @ Book Bum brought to my attention a book I had not heard of but which sounds fantastic! The Beloveds by Maureen Lindley seems like a book I would really enjoy.

Melanie @ Mel To The Any wrote a stunning review of Radio Silence by Alice Oseman. In all honesty, I could have picked any one of Melanie’s posts to feature because she writes with such obvious passion; every time she uploads a glowing review, I add another book to my wishlist! But in this case, her review was so powerful that I ordered the book right then and there.

Wendy @ What The Log Had To Say reviewed All Out, an anthology of queer YA short stories which I’m really interested in reading. I particularly liked the way Wendy was able to outline what the stories were about while not falling into the trap of making her review too lengthy.

LaRonda @ Flying Paperbacks reviewed When the Moon was Ours and made me question yet again why I still have not read an Anna-Marie McLemore book. They sound perfect for me!

 

Discussion posts

Kelly @ Just Another Book in the Wall wrote a really interesting post about why she loves anti-heroes. Some of my favourite books are about anti-heroes but I sometimes struggle to articulate why; Kelly’s post perfectly puts into words why I find these kinds of stories so fascinating.

Krysta @ Pages Unbound wrote a post about how rereading can boost your blog. As I’ve been rereading a lot of books lately, I found this post really helpful for giving me some ideas of how to incorporate these rereads into my blogging schedule!

 

Other fun posts

Becky Wright wrote a delightful post about the basis of all books being like an onion. If you want to know more, you’ll have to read her post ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Orangutan Librarian wrote a list of bookish dreams and it made me crazy happy! Gotta dream big, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Jodie @ Read the Write Act provided some great advice on how to get review copies. This is something I’m starting to think about since I’ve been blogging for a good while now (while I obviously blog because I’m passionate about it, I’d be lying if I said the free books weren’t a huge bonus.) I love being able to promote debut authors and new titles so I’m sure I will find Jodie’s post hugely helpful!

Mandy @ Book Princess Reviews completed the Bookish Academy Awards tag and caused me to add a ton of books to my wishlist!

Callum wrote a piece comparing the movie adaptation of Rosemary’s Baby to the book. Callum’s writing is always intelligent and insightful, and I thought he raised some great points here.

 

Bonus travel posts!

A couple of the book bloggers I follow also post about their travels and they give me serious wanderlust every time!

Marie @ Drizzle Hurricane Books wrote an online travel diary of her time in Berlin and I loved the feel of the whole post. Marie’s combination of words and pictures have definitely made me interested in visiting Germany!

Rachel @ What Rachel Did has been chronicling her travels in New York and this post about Greenwich Village was great. I loved reading about all the places she visited (especially as a fellow F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan!)

 

So those were my favourite blog posts of June 2018! Thank you everyone for providing such high quality content and for keeping me entertained ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here’s to another great month of blogging in July!
