15 Day Book Blogger Challenge - Day 8


I love this challenge (it is hosted by Good Books Good Wine) but I cannot join in on all days, so after my participation on Day 5 with a tear jerker recommendation, here I am again on Day 8 with a short list of the things I like in blogs: 

  • Stylish design - the appearance of a blog is the first thing that I notice, much the same as with the covers of books;
  • Regular features/memes - I love these. Due to lack of time I participate on only one - Teaser Tuesday - an it is great fun;
  • Giveaways and contests - who doesn't love winning!;
  • Information on book deals and sales - An opportunity to get a good book at a bargain price is always welcomed;
  • Detailed reviews - I do love me a good book review, nothing helps me better to decide if I want to try a new book or not;
  • Author's interviews - I always enjoy getting to know my favourite authors just little bit better;
  • Characters' interviews - Some blogs do interviews with favourite book characters and they can be great fun, adding new insights into our beloved Heroes and Heroines;
  • Book excerpts and additional chapters/bonus scene - I always enjoy reading more and more and more from a favourite book;
  • Book recommendations - no need to explain this one;
  • Book lists - best reads, biggest disappointments, Top ten for the beach and the likes.
I managed to come up with only 10 bullets but I believe they pretty much cover everything I love in blogs. Feel free to comment on any point from my least and I will make sure to reply and check your blog.

  1. I really like to browse reviews and read excerpts too. I spend HOURS on Bloglovin every day doing just that. I usually bypass any memes to search for reviews.

  2. I love book lists too! I don't see a lot of them around but totally love them. Awesome list!


  3. I am not an excerpts kind of gal, I try to stay away from them but I love it when I stumble upon a great character interview!

  4. I really like character interviews, but only if they are about characters from books I've read. Otherwise I usually don't find that entertaining. But when they are from books I've read, I love them.

  5. I love character interviews too....I just haven't been able to do any good ones when I've tried. And yes, yes, yes on book lists. That is one reason why I love doing and reading Top Ten Tuesdays. Thanks for sharing!
