BBAW: Blogs that ought to have made the short list




These are few of those blogs which win hands down, even though not short listed. Please do check those out by clicking on the names and you will not be disappointed at all.

1) Feminist Reviews
It is group blog where one can finds reviews of books: fiction, non-fiction, poetry as well as Music, Jewellery, cosmetics etc. I find it extremely readable with very high standards.

2) Vulpes Libris
Another group blog with everything book related. What with guest posts and interviews, this blog showcases some good authors and great books.

3) Margaret of Booksplease
Her range of reading is very good and I look forward to her reviews. What with varied reading, her reviews are worth checking out.

4) Sandy Nawrot
Is a well known blogger. Her reviews are very good and her reading taste is great too. I might not comment on her blog but do not miss visiting it for anything. I read her on my google reader.

5) Asylum
One of the best men bloggers out there. His analysis of books are very good and thanks to him, I have found some wonderful authors and real good reads.

6) mel u

I discovered his blog fairly recently and kind of discovering the pleasure of reading it. Glad I found it. And so will you...

7) Sam Sattler
He too is not unknown. His reviews are top notch and he also speaks of other book related stuff.

There are many may others, which out to have been short listed. But then, we can't win it all.

How about you? What do you recommend?

Great list! Sandy is one of my favourite bloggers - she would have been on my list if she hadn't been nominated for an award already!

I enjoy reading The Asylum too. The rest are all new to me - I'll have to go and explore!

Thanks for sharing some of your favorites! Sandy is the only one I'm familiar with (a regular stop on my Google Reader); that's the beauty of this themed posts - it not only praises those who weren't shortlisted, but it's a great way to introduce us to those we've missed.
