Book Blogging Resources

Here are a few of my go-to book blogging resources that I use to maintain Never Enough Novels. I’ve slowly upgraded and found the right fit over the years and many of these are direct contributors to the success of this blog!



Site Hosting

SiteGround – SiteGround offers a variety of plans at excellent prices. There’s a basic plan that’s dirt cheap for new or small bloggers. I started with the medium plan so I could add WooCommerce to my site to sell my used books and reading tracker. Plus, my site hasn’t gone down or had any issues in the year I’ve been with them.


Site Theme

Captivating Theme by Restored 316 – When I finally splurged on a theme, I searched high and low for one I loved. I finally landed on the Captivating theme from Restored 316 designs. This one is designed for bloggers and offers a beautiful theme that is layered over the Genesis framework, listed below! 


Site  Framework

Genesis Framework – This is undeniably the best way to run the background of your website! It’s a one time purchase that will pay dividends in site speed and customization forever afterward!!


Email Marketing

MailerLite – I wish I had known to start collecting emails from the first day I created my blog! Although I was late to the game, MailerLite has made it so easy for me to create a sign up form and send emails to my subscribers!


Keyword Research

Keysearch – This tool helps me decide what keywords to include in my blog posts so that I can rank higher on Google. It provides tons of data about what users are searching for and how exactly their searches are phrased!


Pinterest Scheduler

Tailwind – This is a must-buy for anyone hoping to have a successful blog. Currently, at least 75% of my blog views come from Pinterest and there’s no way that would happen without Tailwind. You can sign up for free and schedule up to 100 pins, but you’ll need to the regular version to maintain any sort of momentum. It’s only $10 / month when you get the annual plan and worth every.single.penny!


Image Creator

Canva – My favorite reasonably priced blogging resource! Canva is a lifesaver. When you see all those gorgeous blog images or pins, they’re most likely created with Canva. The paid subscription is truly worthwhile and gives you access to an endless selection of stock photos, graphics, templates, and features. Especially since Pinterest now adores new images, the variety of photos and graphics in CanvaPro is a huge help.


Reading Tracker

2021 Reading Tracker – Here’s one I created myself! I was tired of dealing with Goodreads’ website issues and decided to make my own reading tracker. It’s pretty fancy and features a progress marker toward your reading goal, an ARC tracker for new releases, and tons of charts and graphs to analyze your reading. You can get it for only $5!


New Book Releases

Book Of The Month – This is one of the most well known book subscription boxes for excellent reason. Contributors pick five featured books each month that cover a variety of genres. You have the option of picking one (or multiple) or skipping the month if none interest you. Often, new releases are featured so you can read them before anyone else!

I also can’t help but subscribe to a variety of book subscription boxes, all of which are included in my post featuring the best book subscription boxes!


Bookstagram Editing

Adobe Lightroom – One of my favorite parts of book blogging and reading is the bookstagram community! However, photography is definitely not my strong suit. Lightroom is a helpful app for editing photos to make them (at least in my case) look somewhat decent.
