I have so many blogs I love! I track them on my sidebar, so I always know what they're up to. Like Mrs. Kravitz of the blog world. Here are a few I'm greatly enjoying lately.
You know how great it is when you find a reviewer you can really count on to steer you right? That's Renee for me--part English Lit nerd, part urban fantasy/paranormal/romance/and more connoisseur. And on top of it, a wonderful and lovely person who I'm sure, if I lived in LA, I would be stalking her to make her be my gal pal. Some days she has posts where she does a lot of shortie recaps or a lot of previews on a whole string of books. Then other times, she'll go in depth to discuss just one book, usually with a fresh and insightful take. Her recent post on the romance-like arc within non-romantic male friendships in Kelley Armstrong's Men of the Otherworld was absolutely inspired.
This is a new-to-me blog, sort of. And another smart set of reviews that are a pleasure to read, because they mix personality with strong, thoughtful, often entertaining opinions. I almost like a Rebecca review best when I disagree with her, because she supports her ideas well, and makes me rethink things, makes me kick the tires of my own opinions. She also runs a book club, and does these video opinions on the books. I found last month's entry highly entertaining. This month the club is doing Agnes and the Hitman by Cruisie and Mayer.
I think it's safe to say that Tumperkin marches to her own damn drummer. She reviews a very unusual mix of books, a lot of historical, with some contemporary, UF and paranormal thrown in. She'll often discuss wider concepts, like this post on Outsider Heroines, which pulled in Patricia Briggs' Hunting Ground, Patricia Gaffney's To Have And To Hold, as well as books by Jane Austen, Kresley Cole, Judith Ivory (who she has a total thing for!) and others. And though she may not be familiar with this term, she is part of the slow blogging movement. Tumperkin will often go days without putting up a post. But then she'll often come out with something you can really chew on for a week. She also contributes to the infamous Racy Romance Reviews.
Leave a comment and let me know a blog you've been digging lately that I ought to be nosily watching in my sidebar.
