Blogger Spirit Animals

I love reading and hearing other people's thoughts on books. I really appreciate hearing new perspectives and ideas and experiences with books that I've loved or didn't love because it's just SO COOL, you know? 

Anyway, there are a handful of bloggers out there who I read each review of theirs and I nod in agreement with the whole review, every time. Regardless of genre, these bloggers and I have the EXACT same taste in books and that is pretty amazing. 

The Republic Of Thieves by Scott Lynch | Book Review
First off, her review style is THE BUSINESS. She blends her own personal fangirling (or raging, depending on the book) with a solid review of the book. She tells you why she lurved it or why she loathed it and I have mad respect for that. 
It certainly helps that the girl loves her some YA fantasy which is totally my jam, too. 

I aspire to review books like Anna. It's true! It's my dream to grow up to be an Anna kind of reviewer. She packs her reaction to the book + who would enjoy that book in the most concise and legit way possible. It's amazing that she doesn't fall victim to the rant! 
Also, when she reads a book that is perfect for me, she tells me. And she is right. Looking at you, INSIGNIA. 

YA Bibliophile
The foundation of my relationship with Heidi is basically our mutual love for Patrick Ness and that is INCREDIBLE. It definitely expands out into Tamora Pierce and John Green and all sorts of other wonderful authors. Also, Heidi is a Middle School librarian so she adores the Middle Grade reads. 
So we're kind of a perfect match, Heidi and I. 

Amy is another lover of Middle Grade fiction and we have nerded out over Percy Jackson on more than one occasion! And will again, I'm sure.
I love reading Amy's reviews because it's like I'm in a conversation with her and I can just feel her personality pouring out of the post. In a non gross way. 
OH and also we bond over the glory that is Avatar: The Last Airbender + The Legend of Korra. BOOM.

AS IF I could skip this lady! I know we are destined for greatness thanks to our mutual love of all Epic Recs so far. The reason why we are doing smashingly with our Epic Recs is because we love all the same books. 
So really when I think of a book to recommend to Gaby all I have to think is "Did I like this? Yes? GOOD." We're done here. 

Now obviously there are lots of other bloggers out there I adore (look to the right to see what I mean), but I can read any review from any of these 5 bloggers and just know that I will have the same feels. Sometimes the internet is just a magical place, you know? 

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.


  1. You! You are the best :) What a solid list of fab bloggers. So honored to be included :) Mine would be very similar... with the addition of you, of course :)


  3. YOU, lady, are amazing. I can't tell you how many warm fuzzies I got from this. *hug/squash* (*hug/squash* to all the ladies, too! So many super people!)

  4. <3333333 this was the perfect thing to wake up to this morning! <3333333

    Thank you and your blog is totally one of my spirit animals as well <3333333

  5. I love this post :) I have very similar taste as some of these ladies as well :)

  6. It's the best when you've established a relationship with another blogger & you just KNOW when they recommend something your ears perk up. From your list of bloggers here, I feel I know Anna's taste the most. We sometimes joke b/c if there's mention of sisters in a book I know she's not a fan, haha. April has recommended some fantastic books to me, too. I trust her opinions when it comes to romance-y NAs. She knows my style and what I can handle.

  7. This is an amazing list of bloggers you've got here!! They are some of the people I look up to in blogging or just plain ol' enjoy them on their blogs or twitter! <3


Hey you! What do you have to say?
