Bloggers and Noteworthy Reads (This Week’s Reads # 2)

Happy Sunday!

I’d like to give a shoutout to a few bloggers and sites that may interest you. These people are worth following on WordPress if you like book reviews, writing, visually appealing blogs, and personal opinion pieces. This is the second post in this series. Read the first post here.

Here are this week’s reads . . .

Written Word Worlds

WordPress: https://writtenwordworlds.com/

Written Word Worlds is a great site, particularly for readers of young adult literature. There are a variety of posts that center around YA fiction, including book reviews and discussion posts. Sarah’s posts are full of useful links and beautiful visuals – something that I am trying to work on.

Check out her rating system for books. She uses teacups! On top of that, it is one of a handful of WordPress sites I have seen this week with an accompanying Youtube page.

Written Word Worlds – Home Page

My Pick(s): Sarah’s post on shock value raises valuable questions and provides good food for thought on the insensitive use of traumatic experience in literature and popular media for shock value. Read Sarah’s post here. If you are looking for a post with lighter subject matter, try this one on naming characters. They are both good.


The Cat’s Write

WordPress: https://millyschmidt.com/

Milly Schmidt’s posts are helpful for bloggers and aspiring writers. Much like this blog, The Cat’s Write shares thoughts, habits, notes, and discoveries that come up during the writing process. Milly’s site is clear, laid-back, and to the point.  There really is a variety of content on this site – a mix of personal blogging, writing tips, and guest posts.

My Pick: Like I mentioned earlier, The Cat’s Write has some great guest posts. Here’s one from BB Morgan.
