So you have no idea what to write about on your book blog. Welcome to the club. Writer’s block happens to even the best bloggers, which is why I’ve compiled a helpful list of 52 blog post ideas that you can use your book blog! Bookmark this post so you can come back to it if you ever run out of ideas. Or better yet – pin it, tweet it, or share it so other book bloggers can be inspired!
Book Blog Post Ideas:
- Introduce yourself! Whether you’re new to blogging, or you’ve just never gotten around to telling your readers much about yourself outside of books, everyone loves getting to know the person behind the book blog!
- Tell us about your favorite book covers, then share why you love them!
- Share your latest book haul.
- Recommend a list of books to read based on popular books (i.e., “5 books to read if you loved The Hunger Games”).
- Take us on a tour of your bookshelf – messy, organized, or color-coordinated, everyone loves a good #shelfie!
- Interview an author – I’ve been so lucky and honored to interview some of my favorite authors here on the blog. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and ask for an interview from your faves!
- Books vs. movies – we all know the saying, “the book was better,” but has there been an adaptation that you liked more than the book? Or maybe you have a list of movies that totally didn’t live up to their books. Share your opinions!
- Share your favorite retellings. (For example, some of mine are A Curse So Dark And Lonely and Spinning Silver!)
- Coffee chats – need to rant about something, share your random thoughts, or just have a friendly, informal chat? Then this is the perfect way!
- Write about your favorite fandoms!
- Bake a cake/cupcake/dessert that matches your current read! (I baked an apple tart for Pi Day after reading The Apple Tart Of Hope, if you want to check it out.)
- Talk about a book you loved that everyone seems to hate.
- Book tags! There are tons and tons of these circulating the internet, so find one or two (or ten!) that you want to do, and tag your fellow bookish friends so they can join the fun!
- Share your favorite self-published books.
- Write about popular books that you just didn’t understand the hype about.
- List books you bought because of their covers.
- Talk about your favorite classics.
- Share books you DNF’d, and explain why you never finished them.
- Write about bookish terms (i.e., DNF means did not finish. You’re welcome!).
- Who are your favorite authors? Are they super popular? Underrated? What makes you love their books?
- Favorite tropes – are you a secret admirer of the “only one bed” trope? Write about it!
- Least favorite tropes – just can’t stand enemies-to-lovers? Write about it!
- List your favorite bookstagrammers, and why you smile every time you see their photos in your feed!
- Share your favorite genre, then tell us why it’s your favorite.
- Tell us why you joined bookstagram, and share your handle! (Here’s my bookstagram by the way. If you follow me, then I will telepathically send you a big hug. Or an imaginary cake. Whichever you prefer.)
- Share your writing. If you are a writer, then this is a great way to share your stories or WIPs, and get your stuff out there. Fanfiction is awesome too!
- Create some blackout poetry.
- Switch up genres. If you like sci-fi, try reading fantasy. If you like modern fiction, read a classic or two. Share about it – and who knows? Maybe you’ll find a new favorite genre!
- Talk about a book character you would love to spend the day with.
- Tell us which book character you would trade lives with for 24 hours, a week, a month, et cetera.
- Share some tips on how to read more. Whatever you do – turning off the TV, reading 50 pages first thing in the morning, locking your phone in a safe, calling on the bookish fairies to get you out of a reading slump – let us in on your tricks!
- Talk about books that were spoiled for you. Did a well-meaning friend tell you the ending? Did someone let slip that your favorite character dies? Rant away!
- Weekly/monthly/end-of-year wrap-up post. Did you read everything on your tbr? How many books did you read? What were your favorites?
- Make a list of bookish gifts. You might help someone figure out what to buy for the bookworm in their life…or the bookworm will see your post and treat themselves!
- Giveaways! Everyone loves these, and you can make almost anything a prize. Books, candles, bookish socks, fancy metal bookmarks…the possibilities are endless!
- Share your favorite indie bookstores!
- Create a playlist full of songs inspired by one or more of your favorite books.
- Favorite opening lines.
- Talk about your most anticipated books! Pine about not getting an ARC, make us a tiny bit jealous by gushing about early reads, or tell us why you’re on the edge of your seat and waiting for the release date.
- Favorite dedications or epigraphs.
- Popular book quotes – I’m sure most of us know at least one of these:
“To the stars who listen—and the dreams that are answered.”
“I’d rather die on an adventure than live standing still.”
“I am not ruined. I am ruination.”
“Fine. Make me your villain.”
(I mean…I’m not wrong, am I?)
- Favorite book quotes.
- Share about books set in your town/state.
- List your best tips for buying books. Some ideas may be where to buy them, how to get the most books on a budget, best places to find thrifted books in good condition…
- Write a mini book review! These are super fun!
- Talk about a fictional setting you would love to live in. The Shire? Cair Paravel? Ketterdam? Verity? Panem?
- Share tips for how book bloggers and bookstagrammers can get review copies.
- Make a list of your favorite book characters.
- Best Spring/Summer/Fall/Winter reads – make a list of some seasonal reads you love!
- Paperback vs. hardcover/ebook vs. physical book vs. audiobook. What’s your preferred reading format?
- Talk about a time when reading got you in trouble or somehow wasn’t a good idea. Did you stay up until 4am because you kept telling yourself “just one more page?” Were you so engrossed in a book that you missed your stop on a bus? Did you burn supper because you were too busy listening to an audiobook through your favorite pair of noise-cancelling headphones?
- Write a book review.
