Book Goals - Part 5

I've found that I need a lot more practice at book reviews. So I've been reading a variety of blogs and review magazines so that I can practice. My former reviews sound terrible, even if I liked the book! So I will read more reviews of the books after I try to write my own. This will help me to see what I'm missing and what I can do better.

Here are some blogs I like:
YA Books and More
The Reading Zone
Guys Lit Wire
YA Author's Cafe
Boys Blogging Books
The Shady Glade
Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast
Not Your Mother's Book Club
Book Club Girl
Emily Reads
Readergirlz - much more than reviewers, they focus on books with strong, female leads and they help you to run a book club by listing invite, food, and music ideas as well as additional books to read if you liked the monthly selection.

I also realized that book blogs are only a very small part of the blogs I read in google. I read blogs by authors, agents, bookstore owners, and librarians. I've rearranged my tabs to better reflect this separation so that I can focus on the reviewers. Of course, many blogs do more than one thing so these are just my demarcatiions.
