Blog Post Round Up | March 2021

Hello April! For the last week or so we’ve had pretty consistent nice spring weather, which is exciting. I’ve also been itching to get into a major spring cleaning/decluttering/organizing mode. I think I’m finally going to make the jump and buy a bookcase (yes, that’s right, I haven’t had a bookcase for over a year) plus I’m going to repaint one of the rooms.

However, I can’t do B until I finish A .. so I’ve been having fun blogging and reading all the great discussion posts! Please check out the awesome bloggers and their posts from this month!

As always, if I missed your post in their list, you are still an awesome blogger. And feel free to link any other posts!

The Blog Posts

Stephanie at Adventures of a Bibliophile gives us a great recommendations list for Women’s History Month. I recognized a lot of the titles and two of them are on my list! I love a good recommendations post :) She also gives us her five favorite books by Asian Americans plus some additional antiracist resources. Always appreciate these type of posts across bloggers!

Charvi at Not Just Fiction talks about how she’s able to tackle big books by reading them in e-format. She provides great points on why it works for her and brings the discussion to us. I find myself sometimes daunted, but I actually would prefer to hold the book physically because I like to know where I am in a book, especially a big one. I don’t know why, but I do. She also discusses why she doesn’t follow a blogging schedule and why it works for her. I was so glad to see that I’m not alone in not being a scheduler when it comes to my blog (which is weird because I’m a planner).

Ella at My Literary Life (new to me blogger!) adds her thoughts to the conversation about if audiobooks ‘count’. I wholeheartedly agree with her that they absolutely do count. Some find it hard to concentrate on reading a physical book and find that it’s easier and more enjoyable listening to an audiobook.

Samantha and Amber at Bibliomavens discuss their weird bookworm habits. This was a fun post to read! I’m glad that I’m not alone in reading more than one book. I too have a tendency to not finish series, though mostly because I don’t always know when the next book is coming out unless I’m constantly looking for updates (like with Winds of Winter).

The Orangutan Librarian gives us their list of feel good books to help you get out of a funk. This kind of post is appreciated considering we’re hitting the one year mark of being in a pandemic. She also talks about the Importance of Knowing Your Own Taste plus Ways to Avoid the HYPE and HATE Train. I definitely need to remember this more often .. I’m sure there are tons of books on my TBR (and my floor) that I picked up because other readers were always talking about them.

Shannen at Rekindled Bibliophile gives us a list of female-centric book recommendations in honor of International Women’s Day. I was very happy to see a few books on her list that are on my TBR. It also reminds me that I need to up my international author game.

CW at The Quiet Pond gives us 8 Tips on How To Manage a Book Blog On A Busy Schedule. While I mentioned above that I don’t really follow a schedule, I still have some aspirations to do so. Or at least to create a more organized way to keep track of posts and content. This post from CW gives a lot of great tips that I’m so glad that I was able to read. They also give a great recommendation list for books written in verse – a type of book that I’m very interested in!

Marie at Drizzle and Hurricane Books shares a well thought out piece about how to write a blog post that will attract readers. I think the biggest point I took away is writing a post that I would want to read. Writing about a topic that I love and am passionate about will come out in my posts (hopefully).

Jayati at It’s Just a Coffee Addicted Bibliophile (semi-new to me blogger) gives her take on types of readers. I like her names for the types, they feel and sound like perfect descriptions. I think I’m a mix of consistent, chaotic, and hoarder.

Bertie at Luminosity Library (semi-new to me blogger) discusses about ableism in the bookish community from publishers down to us the reviewers. I thought this was a very well thought out post and really made stop and think about the books I read and review, including what books I look to ask for through NetGalley. I hope that this amazing community continues to uplift books and authors that are diverse, including those with disabilities, and bring their voices forward.

Georgiana at Readers’ High Tea (semi-new to me) shares some of her favorite dystopia reads. I know that some have avoided dystopia books since the pandemic started; however, when done right, I still enjoy this genre. And this list has a few books that I’ve read and many that are on my TBR list.

Sofii at A Book A Thought shares her definitive book blogger list! I’m very excited and thankful that she decided to take this on as I know that there are so many great book blogs out there that I’m missing either because of different platforms or whatever the reason. A lot of my time looks like it will be used up browsing all the blogs that I don’t know yet.

Veronika at Wordy and Whimsical shares ways on how to get out of a blogger burnout. I really liked this post; there were a lot of good ideas! I’m not sure that I really experienced burnout yet – I think because my posts have gotten a little more sporadic over the years. I do stress about getting book review posts done as I’m still very behind, but I still enjoy blogging and coming up with new post ideas.

    It’s strange for me as well since I’m also a planner in general but I struggle with scheduling blog posts. Probably cause it’s my hobby and I don’t want to stress out with it :)
