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.

Adventures of a Bibliophile

WordPress:  https://adventuresofabibliophile.com/

Adventures of a Bibliophile is a solid site if you like reading challenges. Stephanie tracks her reading challenges and infuses her posts with her own experiences. It’s a nice personal blog to read, and she inspires me to take on challenges of my own. I personally enjoy any blog that gives readers a sense of progress or momentum.

AOFAB_SC

My Pick: She’s currently working on a Shakespeare Reading Challenge.


Alisa Ellie

WordPress: https://alisaellie.blog/

I found Alisa Ellie on Instagram during a bookstagram shoutout session. I was first drawn in by her beautiful feed. I soon found that she had short, informational posts on blogging, writing, and books. Her blog is also very aesthetically pleasing. She is honing her own style, for sure.

Check her out. Her posts are funny and useful.

Alisa Ellie

My Pick:  I picked her Writing as a Skilll chose this post because it meshes well with how I view writing and writing habits.


Some Noteworthy Followers

I’d like to get in the habit of featuring some of my followers, new and old in a weekly post (usually on Friday or over the weekend). I’ve read some great work on WordPress, and I think it would be nice to bring specific posts to light in the future.

Thrifty Bibliophile

WordPress:  https://thriftybibliophile.com/

These book reviews are short and to the point. I really enjoy how quickly I can get an overview of a book.

My Pick: The site is also very well organized. I have included a link to her book review index (very helpful!).Check it out here.


Write Kind Travels

WordPress:  https://writekindtravels.com/

Book reviews, Barcelona, and travels. There are a variety of posts and topics on this site. I personally enjoy the blend of information and photography. In fact, I may try similar posts on my site when the time comes.
