Book Blog Post Ideas

Ice Planet Barbarians Ruby Dixon book bloggers blog post ideas

I have spent four years in the book blogging and bookstagram niche … and this list doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what you can talk about. Book blogs don’t have to be limited to reviews, though every book blog should have some of those.

  1. Of course, you can (and should!) share book reviews
  2. List 10 books you want to read by the end of the year
  3. Do an author interview or spotlight (bonus points if it’s an Indie author!) – the key to author interviews is to do something creative. Asking generic questions and putting up book links doesn’t cut it. Get creative and have some fun!
  4. Share a round-up of your favorite book bloggers – a few of mine are Purposely Unperfect, Books and Bindings, and She Reads Romance Books!
  5. Facebook groups to join as a book blogger – I have a brand new group if you’re looking!
  6. Non-fiction November – share a listicle or mini reviews of your favorite non-fiction books. (I’m currently reading You Are A Badass At Making Money by Jen Sincero and loving it!)
  7. Books that changed your life and why
  8. Shelfies! Everyone loves a shelfie! Organize your bookshelf and share pics and tips. You can easily turn this into a discussion of how readers prefer to organize their shelves (bonus points if you reach out to your fellow bookstagrammers or book bloggers and ask them!) – alphabetical, by author, by color, etc.
  9. Talk about your favorite romance tropes – (I am a second chance romance lover all the way!)
  10. 10 books based on true stories
  11. Books that are underrated but should be on everyone’s TBR
  12. Do you read Banned Books? What are some of your favorites? Do you think books should be banned?
  13. TBR (to be read) list for 2023 (or whatever year it is when you do this)
  14. Books you’ve DNF’d (did not finish) that other readers loved
  15. Share your favorite Bookstagram (bookish Instagram) accounts
  16. Tips for taking unique book photos
  17. How to start a book club – you can find the one that I host with my bookish bestie here!
  18. How to work with brands as a book blogger
  19. Talk about book covers – share ones that have beautiful covers and do they reflect the story?
  20. Tips for readers who want to write a book
  21. Talk about the differences between traditionally published books vs. Indie (independently published) books
  22. Who is your favorite author? Talk about your top 3 books by them. (or top 3 books a new-to-them reader should start with)
  23. Talk about book-to-movie adaptations – are you a fan of endings that change 🤬 Percy Jackson 🤬
  24. List your favorite props for book photos
  25. How to annotate books (and what are your thoughts about it?)
  26. Kindle, paperback, audio, or hardcover? Share pros & cons and start a discussion
  27. List your favorite picture books – or ones you think every parent should have
  28. Holiday book recommendations
  29. Sci-fi book recommendations
  30. Romance book recommendations (I always have plenty of these!)
  31. Thriller book recommendations (seeing a pattern? This works for any genre!)
  32. Tips for using NetGalley as a book reviewer
  33. Talk about the differences between Bookstagram, BookTok (bookish TikTok), BookTube (bookish YouTube), and book blogging
  34. Podcasts every avid reader should listen to
  35. Share some of your favorite Little Free Libraries – my book club co-host has an adorable LFL! (do you have one? Showcase it!)
  36. Reese’s Book Club recommendations – have you read any of them?
  37. Favorite book quotes
  38. Cover reveals
  39. Book tags – these are always fun on Bookstagram or BookTube but can definitely be used as a blog post idea
  40. Top Ten Tuesday – seriously, this website is a prompt list by itself! Each Tuesday, there’s a new topic and you can pick any of the backlog ones to write a post about – I think they’ve been going since about 2010 so you’ll find at least a few 😉 – bonus note: there’s a link-up attached each Tuesday so it’s a great way to get an extra boost of traffic to your website!
  41. Freebie books! Everyone loves a good freebie list – you could also turn this into a “where to find discounted books” list but be careful sharing sites that promise free books. They’re not all legit and some offer books that have been pirated from authors!
  42. Bookish resolutions – this is a fun post to do at the beginning of January! I love writing resolutions (and TBR lists) … but I always break them. Oh well!
  43. Book buying bans – have you done them? How do you survive them?
  44. Best reads of 2023 so far
  45. Famous authors (alive or dead) that you’d love to have a cup of coffee (or tea) with
  46. Monthly/yearly reading wrap-up
  47. Host a reading challenge – for a few years, I hosted an AtoZ Reading Challenge and we had a lot of fun with it!
