Book Blog News {Read Faster, Pen Names and more…}


Hi guys and welcome to Book Blog News! This is a feature I post every Sunday in which I talk about what has happened in the book blogging world in the past week. It basically includes posts from other blogs that have caught my attention and I want to share with more people! It was inspired by Elizziebooks‘ “Booktube News”.
So grab a cup of coffee and let’s take a look on some of the most interesting things going on!

The first blog post that caught my attention this week was one from Libba Bray, writer of “The Diviners”, about depression. It was a very moving, honest and personal post about herself and the depression she has been dealing with for a long time now. She tries to explain what it’s like and how it has affected her and her relationships with other people, how hard it is to really make someone understand what it’s like if they’ve never been through it themselves and many more things. I honestly wish her all the best in getting through this tough part of her life!

Brittany from the Books Addict’s Guide wrote a post about all the pressure she has been feeling when it comes to achieving her reading goals. She is trying to read more books than last year, through her goodreads reading challenge, but it’s making reading a bit less fun for her…

Amber over at Me, my Shelf and I discovered a really cool new technique for reading faster! It was created by Spritz and it will be something like an app that will place words in the best position, so that it will optically take less time to read and comprehend. It’s quite hard to explain in a few words, but hop over to her blog to read more about it in detail and see some pictures. It sounds really revolutionary!

Jenn from YA Romantics is having a spy theme this week, within which she wrote a post called: “Author Alter Egos”. She is actually talking about authors who have written some books under their real name and some others using a different pen name. She also gives us several reason as to why an author would decide to do that! A very informative post!


If you’re new to book blogging or if you’re thinking of starting a book blog, check out Parajunkee‘s “Book Blogger Checklist”. She is talking about the do’s and don’ts when it comes to book blogging and giving a long list of several tips to create a successful book blog.


Also, check out a really fun post over at Verbosity’s Book Reviews. If you want to be a bookish hipster, you can just follow her 5 steps and before you even know you will become one!

Have you seen any other amazing posts this week? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Thanks a lot for this roundup! I haven’t been reading that many blogs lately (I suck) but this was really a great collection of posts. Libba Bray’s post on depression was really hard hitting, and Spritz is cool, but weird too. I don’t know if I would enjoy reading like that.
