Emily Books for books by women

I like Emily Books' blog for ideas about books by women. Great list!

Fav Bookish Blog

My top favorite book blog is Cakes, Tea and Dreams by Katie Noah Gibson. Her writing is beautiful, insightful, and reflective. Each year, I've found about fifteen new favorite titles through her monthly "reading roundups," which briefly discuss each book she's read. To get a quick sense of her taste, check out the post "Bookish A to Z Survey."

Travel lovers book blog

Of course, I like my new little gem. :) It's a book blog geared toward people who love to curl up on the couch with a good book, but also want to explore the real world inspired by literature! Life should be as fun as fiction!
