Blogmas Day 11: Resources I Use as a Reader/Blogger


Happy BLOGMAS day 11!

I’m sure everyone has heard of these resources, but I never really share what I use. If you’re new to the book community one of these may be helpful. They all help step up my blogging/reading game.


I think we all know what this one is. I get one Goodreads at least once a day. I like to scroll through and find new books to add to my TBR. I’ve used it many times at work, since I do work in a library. I can also follow authors that I love.

If I don’t have a book review on my blog, I will typically put one up on Goodreads.


I enjoy staying up to date on new releases. I’m definitely not the greatest at it, but I try. Don’t take my advice when it comes to NetGalley though, because I have a pretty low percentage ratio. I am working diligently at increasing it!

Google Docs:

I don’t have much to say other than this is where I take my reading notes. I can get it from any computer with internet access. I love customizing fonts and using the highlight feature. It’s satisfying!

YouTube (BookTube):

I love to lay on my couch and watch BookTube. Sometimes it helps give me motivation to read. I usually just watch it to check out what’s new in the book community.


If anyone knows how bad I am with my grammar and punctuation, it’s my blogger friends. I did use Grammarly for a while, but that’s too expensive to get what I want. I also use this as another set of “eyes” after writing my blog posts. After reading something over and over again, words start to blur together.

Honorable Mention:

Fantastic Fiction:

This website is awesome when it comes to whether a book is in a series or not. It’s easy to use in a hurry.

What resources do you use as a blogger/reader?

I have recently joined the book community and I am enjoying it. I will be reviewing books on this blog as well as posting other bookish related posts. Most of the books I read are Young Adult but I'll try to read any genre. Let me know your opinions, but be respectful of others. Don't forget to tell people about this blog if you enjoy it!

One thought on “Blogmas Day 11: Resources I Use as a Reader/Blogger”

  1. These are great resources for people new to the book blogging/book reviewing community to use. Such a great blogmas post idea. I use all of these except for Prowritingaid and Fantastic Fiction. Some of the other resources that I use are OverDrive and Hoopla. I like to pair my physical book with the audio. I just think it helps me get through a book faster. I also use Edelweiss+ in addition to NetGalley. The other resource that I use most of all are social media platforms for my bookish content, Instagram and Twitter, specifically.
