Recent Discoveries in Bookish Newsletters
It's been a bit since I've shared other bookish newsletters; here are some recent finds that might interest you
I’m finishing up my trip to Southern California, and while I’m sad to leave family, friends, and the beautiful weather, I’m always happy to get home. I guess Dorothy said it best, “there is no place like home.”
One of the things I do periodically is to search out other bookish newsletters on Substack, and I’ve found many that I’ve really been enjoying lately. There are so many bloggers and newsletter creators online that when I find one that brings something unique to the world of books, I want to share the bookish goodness with all my reader friends. Maybe one or more of these will pique your interest too:
Anna reads many of the same books I read (my reading twin), so that is what appealed to me. She also reads other books that I wouldn’t normally read, and she writes about them in such a way that makes me want to read more of her recommendations.
I enjoy seeing Luiza’s newsletter in my inbox weekly. She combines her love of reading, movies, and streaming and creates a fun read that always brings new recommendations for books to read and plenty to watch and stream when I have free time.
Rosalynn reads many of the same books that I read (another reading twin), and she never fails to highlight at least one book that I learn more about and want to read.
Kerry’s newsletter offers great book recommendations to give you plenty of ideas for your weekend reading. Some newsletters feature an in-depth review of one book, while others feature several books to choose from.
I’m still not sure what an “inverted gentleman” is, but T. C.’s newsletter is a joy to read. T. C. writes about books and movies and goes in deep with his reviews. He discusses points that most reviewers gloss over or completely neglect and leaves me thinking about the book long after reading the review.
Marg’s newsletter is a new discovery for me and is similar to mine as she likes to write about books, other newsletters, and other book-adjacent topics. She also features a yummy sandwich, dessert, or other food item she cooked, along with the recipe she used.
I don’t read many books written by male authors, and I read even fewer newsletters written by men; now that I’ve discovered this newsletter, both of those are changing. I stumbled across Greg’s newsletter a few months ago, and I’ve enjoyed catching up on his backlist and checking out the books he reviews.
Who or what do you go to for your reading recommendations? Do you have a reading twin? Did you find any newsletters that sound like a good fit for your reading life? I’d love to hear all about it in the comments below.
It always takes me a few days to get back into the swing of things after a vacation, no matter how long or short it is. I’m already looking forward to the weekend as I see a lot of reading in my future. Until next week, happy reading!
