My Favourite BookBloggers.

My Favourite BookBloggers.

Today I am going to share with you some of my favourite bookbloggers. I started ChocolatePages after reading many other bookblogs, until I decided that I could and wanted to write one too. I love sharing my thoughts about what I’ve read, what I’m going to read and many other bookish thoughts. But I also love reading other people’s thoughts too. So, here are ten of my favourite bookbloggers. Not in any particular order, they are all amazing.

So, lets get started:  

*Each picture belongs to the blogger I speak about.

Irena from is fantastic.


Irena and I did a buddy read when we first ‘met’, and I have been a firm fan of hers ever since. Irena enjoys the same kind of books as me, and I find her reviews brilliant. Irena is a blogger that I will easily take book recommendations from. Plus she regularly has excellent giveaways on her site. 


Kat from is a really charismatic blogger.


Kat tends to review more fantasy and YA books, but there is a variety of genres there too. Kat has a brilliant youtube channel, and I am subscribed so that I can watch all the vlogs that she makes. I love hearing about her travels to all the book conventions. Her youtube channel is kat TheBookNerd



Rayna from is so talented and imaginative.


Rayna has a fantastic blog, my favourite part of her blog is her many discussions. There is so much to read on Rayna’s blog, from her weekly meme’s to book hauls, to of course her fabulous reviews. Rayna has a wide variety of genres that she reviews, so there is always a good recommendation coming from her corner of the net.



Donna from  is brilliant.


I immediately knew I would love Donna’s site, when I read her name. Chocolate and waffles! Now she and I have a lot in common, chocolate and books, and I can always go a waffle or two. Her blog is so beautiful, and I love that she does ‘This Week in Books’ nearly every week, so there are always great books to learn about, and what Donna thinks of them. 



Claire from puts all my favourite things together, books, chocolate and cake!


I love Claire’s blog. There is a always a delicious new recipe to try, and a brilliant book review to read. Claire has also written her own novel which sounds like a great read to me, so publishers – look out for this talented lady! Claire’s blog is a fabulous place to go to enjoy some indulgent ‘me time’.


Rachel from is amazing.

Rachel’s site is brilliant. She has great bookish discussions always giving thoughtful points of view and welcoming conversational discussion points in her comment section. Rachel regularly gives us her ‘stacking the shelves’ round up of all her posts and reads, but she also tells us about lots of other blogger’s interesting posts she has read over the weeks. I always find new bloggers to follow and interesting posts through Rachel’s ‘Stacking the Shelves’ posts. And of course Rachel gives us great book reviews.


Suze and Anniek from are lovely girls.


WithLoveForBooks is an amazing site. Suze and Anniek can read so many books and write reviews at a fantastic speed. They have Author interviews and so many brilliant bookish giveaways. I was lucky enough to win a package of 8 amazing summer books a few months ago. They have new reviews and giveaways almost daily on their site. Plus the giveaways are usually international. 



Sharon from is inspiring.


Sharon has very similar taste in books to me. We both like chick lit and crime thrillers, so I am always keen to see what Sharon is reading and what she thinks of the books. Shaz reads way faster than me, so my ‘want to read’ pile grows ever bigger after reading her reviews. Shaz has just done a ‘food and drink in books’ month. I love foodie books, so I really enjoyed this theme.


Jo from always give a thrilling read.

jo chestnut

Jo’s blog is the blog that makes my ‘want to read’ pile grow daily! She mainly reviews psychological or crime thrillers, just the kind of books that I love. The way Jo writes her reviews is fantastic, she tells us how the books make her feel, along with all the other reviewing skills. She certainly knows how to make me want to read read read.


AJ from, I loved her from the very start.


AJ started her blog the same time as me, and ever since we have become firm bookblogging buddies. We love all the same books, I can always take great recommendations from her. Plus AJ does her unique #AJsCoolCoverChallenge, whereby each week she chooses a different topic of book, and a group of bloggers use her # to reveal what we are reading and their covers. I love AJ’s blog.


books and tea

So, be sure to check out these lovely bloggers, all their sites are linked into their names, so you can easily find them. Of course there are many many more fantastic bloggers out there, and I always like to hear great recommendations of new ones to read. So, if you can recommend some to me, or you know and agree with the bloggers I love, let me know in the comments below.

    That is so sweet of you, thank you so much! Our love for chocolate is strong! 🙂 It feels so weird for me to be among some of the bloggers I admire! I love how books bring us all together. I’ll definitely check everyone’s blog. Thank you for spreading the blog love! 😘

    If I had to recommend a few blogs on the spot I’d pick Cleo from she’s so active around here that you might already know about her. She’s to blame for 50% of the books I add to my TBR! Lindsay at mixed great reviews and recipes, a little like Claire and her yummy cakes. For crazy raves and rants, I go to Jill at and has brilliant discussion posts and awesome reviews.

    Thank you so much for mentioning me, Amanda! Your blog post made my day! That’s so nice from you.
    Also, thanks for recommending some bloggers new to me, I’ll make sure to check them all out.
    I also like Dona from Chocolatenwaffles, I think her blog was always good but with time it became even better, and I have no doubt she’ll get even bigger with time.
    I also like to visit With Love for Books on regular basis. I like how they both review the same book sometimes, of course their giveaways are always mind blowing (especially those 8 books packages and I’m so glad you were lucky enough to win), bjt they are also always sweet when connecting via twitter.
    Jo form Mychestnutreading is also one ofmy favs.
    I’ll have to check others bloggers out.

    As for my recs, I also really like Lola from Hit or Miss books ( ), she reads mostly ya and we were friends on GR for looong before I started blogging.
    Fafa from is also good, but she’s on a blogging break now. She was also my GR friend long before I started blogging.
    Also, my really good friend Rachel from . We are friends for years now, we know each other since 2013, when I first started reading in English, we are in the same GR group and she actually helped me a lot when I started creating my blog with her advices, and she adviced me how to request books from Edelweiss because I wasn’t sucessfulthere at all.
    All of those bloggers I mentioned read mostly ya. I used to read ya a lot.

    Also, Ananda from is amazing, she reads mostly chick lit and crime fiction, and she also is amazing as a person.

      Wow, excellent.Thank you so much Irena. That sounds like sound great recommendations for me to check out. It sounds like you are very active on Goodreads. I only use that to record my books. I also haven’t used Edelweiss either – is that the same kid of thing as netgalley?
      Thanks again Irena.
