As someone fairly new to the blogging world, I was thrilled when I discovered the “link up”. In case you’re unfamiliar, book blog link ups are a way for a bunch of bloggers to share links to their related content in one post by the host blogger.
I’ve found them useful both as a reader and blogger. As a reader, they introduce me to new websites that I hadn’t visited before. Particularly for bookish content, this means lots of new ideas of what to read next! As a book blogger, they drive traffic to that specific post, which opens the door for additional views of the rest of my content.
Often, I found myself stumbling on to a book blog link up and then forgot which website hosted it by the following month. So, I finally put together a list of my favorite bookish link ups (to help me keep track) and to share with anyone else who might be interested.
TBR Mix N Mingle – I can’t forget my own link up! The first day of each month, come right back here and share your To Be Read lists! This is a list of books you’re hoping to read during the month.
Quick Lit by Modern Mrs Darcy. This was my first link up exposure and I’m now a faithful follower. These posts are short summaries of what everyone’s been reading recently. It’s extremely helpful for what to read next ideas without having to slog through long-winded book reviews. Link up on the 15th of each month.
Monthly Recap by Kristen at See You In A Porridge. A monthly rundown of blogger’s favorite events, products, books, shows, etc from the past month. This is a fun post to write and fun to read what others have been up to. Link up on the 1st Thursday of each month.
Monthly Book Reviews – Eline over at Lovely Audiobooks hosts a monthly linkup to share book reviews! She does an excellent job of sharing participants’ reviews on her blog and social media and there’s always a wide variety of reviews to browse.
Top 10 Tuesday by That Artsy Reader Girl – Each week, Jana provides a new topic. Once you create a post with your own Top Ten, you can add it to her linkup. Recent Top Tens include Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR (to be read), Top Ten Favorite Book Quotes, and Top 10 Books on my TBR the Longest. Link up every Tuesday.
Nonfiction Friday by Doing Dewey Decimal – Although not as populated as other link ups, I like this one for it’s unique topic. Nonfiction doesn’t always get a lot of attention in the book blogging world, so here’s your chance to remedy that! Link up every Friday.
Saturday Situation by Pure Imagination – Every Saturday this dual linkup features bookish posts (reviews, etc) in one section and and another section devoted to book giveaways! Link up every Saturday.
I’m sure there are tons of other book blog link ups that I haven’t found yet, so let me know what I missed!
