Book Review Link-Up

Welcome back to the Book Blogger Linky!

Reviews are the cornerstone of any book blog. Yet, they often don’t get a lot of love, be it through comments or views.

Book Blogger Review Link-Up November/December

Welcome to the Review Link-Up November/December!

Reviews are the cornerstone of any book blog. Yet, they often don’t get a lot of love, be it through comments or traffic. Personally, I enjoy writing reviews the most. And I’m very pleased to be able to give all of our awesome reviews a platform here. So, add your links below and get some views, shares and comments for your posts!

This month we’ll have a double feature. I want to change things around and do the link-ups at the 1st of each month. Since that’s not how I’d originally planned it (because my brain has knots in it), we now have two months to cover before we’re fully on the new schedule. That means for all of December you can add your reviews from November and December to the link-up.

Your Review of the Month

You can add a ranting review of a 2-star book, or an excited review of a 5-star book you fell in love with. Or a review of a book you find important and want everyone to read. Link the review you enjoyed writing the most or the one you feel turned out best.

Every book blogger is welcome to join in. This link-up is not limited in regard to genre or book format. Anything goes as long as it’s a book review!

I will share every linked review on Twitter and, if possible, add them to my Pinterest group board (send me a note if you’d like to be added to that).

Include the hashtag #ReviewotM in ANY of your book review tweets, and I will RT!

The Rules

Copy and paste this line to the bottom of your review post before adding it to the link-up:
This is my Review of the Month for the review collection on LovelyAudiobooks.info

See how DJ did it in her review: Books and Bindings review of the month

I won’t remove reviews that don’t add this link back to me. But I will focus my support on the reviews that have it.

You can add 3 reviews per month, so a total of 6! That way you won’t have to pick one favourite (I know that can be difficult), but we still have enough variety.

There are no other requirements for linking up. But it’s of course always nice and beneficial to everyone if you visit some of the other participating blogs, share and comment.

Book Blogger Review link-up October

Review of the Month bookblogger link-up

Hello fellow book bloggers!

How about a new linky? We have the awesome discussion link-up by Feed Your Fiction Addiction and It Starts at Midnight, and Jo’s Booktastic Thursday. But I want to see your favourite reviews! Welcome to the book blogger review link-up October 🙂

Reviews are the cornerstone of any book blog. Yet, they often don’t get a lot of love, be it through comments or traffic. Personally, I enjoy writing reviews the most. And I’d like to give them a platform here. So add your links below and get some views, shares and comments for your review posts!

 

Link your Review of the Month

It can be a ranting review of a 2-star book, or an excited review of a 5-star book you fell in love with. Or a review of a book you find important and want everyone to read. Link the review you enjoyed writing the most or the one you feel turned out best.

Every book blogger is welcome to join in. This link-up is not limited in regard to genre or book format. Anything goes as long as it’s a book review!

You can link up to 3 reviews per month because I know it can be hard to pick just one favourite.

This link-up starts on the last Sunday of October and ends on the last Sunday of November. That’s when the old link-up closes and a new one opens. Your review should be published in that timeframe since that’s the idea of “review of the month”.

I will share every linked review on Twitter and comment on at least one linked review per blog.
If you include the hashtag #ReviewotM in your tweets, I will retweet, too.

The only requirement: Copy and paste this to the bottom of your review post before linking it and make sure the link back to Lovely Audiobooks is active:
This is my Review of the Month for the review collection on LovelyAudiobooks.info

See how DJ did it in her review: Books and Bindings review of the month

There are no other requirements for linking up. But it’s of course always nice and beneficial to everyone if you visit some of the other participating blogs, share and comment 🙂

Do you care about your favourite authors’ political views?

2018 Discussion Challenge: authors' political views

Let’s talk about authors’ political views!

Whispers in the background:
” Omg, I can’t believe she wants to talk about politics!”
“What? Politics? Is she insane?”
“Politics? This will end in a disaster!”

 

The Story

Like the busy little bookblogger I am, I was writing a review to a book I enjoyed. When it was done I headed over to Twitter to look up the author and see if I could tag her. You know, to spread the love.

Instead I stumbled into the middle of a political battle between another bookblogger, this author and another one.

Previously, I had a vague idea that this author had different political views from my own. It made me roll my eyes a bit the one time it showed in one of her books. But overall, I found them so enjoyable that I didn’t think about it any further or researched if she shares her political views on her social media platforms. Until I stumbled into said twitter war.

 

The Discussion

And now I’m wondering:

How important are authors’ political views to you as a reader and as a reviewer?

Do you only read and review books of authors who either remain neutral or share your opinions?

Or do you leave politics completely out of your reading choices?

I hope you share your thoughts in the comments 🙂

 

The Rules

I have studied political science for a while (until I came to my senses) and politics has always been an important topic for me. I feel strongly about my opinions. And yes, I admit, I also believe that my views are the only true, good and right ones, hah! I don’t try particularly hard to keep them a secret, but I would like to have a civil talk where everyone feels welcome, so I want to keep this all neutral. Please keep your actual political views out of your reply, and only post your opinion on whether or not political views in general matter for your reading choices.

 

My Opinion

I’m very unsure still and I hope this discussion will help me make up my mind. The whole topic has come up very little for me since I used to not follow authors on social media. Most books I’ve read seemed neutral to me. On one hand, I feel art and literature are political on a more basic level than which party you vote for in the next election and in that sense transcend party differences.

On the other hand, as a bookblogger I want people to buy the books I recommend. And do I want to support authors in this way who stand for things that I might view as actually threatening? We live in difficult political times where we aren’t only talking about nuances or whether taxes should be raised by 1 or 5%, but about a lot of things that actually scare people everywhere on the political spectrum.

I’m very much looking forward to finding out what you think about this!
