20+ Book Blog Post Ideas

Maintaining a book blog can be a great way to be more mindful and thoughtful about your reading and reading habits. It can be hard to get those creative juices flowing if you’re new to the book blogging world or you’ve doing it for a while.

Here’s some inspiration for you to work your magic on.

Book Blog Post Ideas

  • Book Reviews
    • ‘Title by Author’- This is a bit boring but just fine.
    • If you struggle with writing reviews, think outside the box.
      • ‘X Reasons You Should/Shouldn’t Read Title by Author’- This is a much better way to grab a readers attention and bring people to your blog.
      • ‘X Thoughts I Had While Reading Title by Author’ is another out of the box option for a review.
  • Book vs Movie Review
  • Book Lists
    • Pick a topic and put together a list based on that topic.
  • Recommendations
  • Author Interviews
  • Tags/Memes
  • Reading Challenges (& Updates)
    • Create your own! Pick an author, read their entire catalog, & blog your thoughts along the way.
    • Pick a genre to read more of & blog your thoughts.
  • Unboxing: book subscription boxes or book merchandise
  • Book Haul
  • Reading Updates/Wrap Ups for the week, month, or season

    • You’re not limited to just books for this. A fun take is to recommend books based on TV shows, movies, & other media.
