70 Book Blog Post Ideas
There are many different types of book blogs out there, hopefully some of these ideas will be helpful to you.
Here’s a tip, whenever you feel like you’re running out of a book blog post idea, just bookmark this page and come back to it later!
Book Blog Post Idea #1 – Book Reviews
This book blog post ideas are all related to the book itself. For example, if you read -The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn’ – you can do 4 separate posts (a book review, a series review, an author interview and a compilation of book quotes!)
There are many book review formats out there. My favourite way to review a book is to state what I didn’t like and what I liked in the book review blog post.
You can also add on additional information about the book like it’s ratings on Amazon, Goodreads, images of different covers, book age rating and more.
This is so that your book review is not just a review but also a complete set of information on the book for anyone who visits your blog.
This is a book blog post that you can only carry out once you’re done reading the whole series. The more books a series has, the more time it’ll take you to write and publish the blog post.
For this one, you need to be patient and hardworking to read all the books!
If you’re able to contact the author, an author interview post on your book blog will definitely make your book blog stand out from the rest.
Book Quotes List
Book quote lists are one of my favourites to write. This is because it’s personal but also relevant to my readers.
While reading, I love tabbing all the best quotes! The ones that make you feel something on the inside!
After writing my book review blog post, I’ll write a seperate book quote list for some of my favourite books.
Book Blog Post Idea #2 – Book Recommendation Lists
Author Book Compilation List
You can either compile a list of books from your favourite authors or popular authors so that it’ll be a helpful resource to your readers.
Which (Author) Books To Read First/How To Read (Author) Books In Order
A great idea would be to compile all the author’s books and list them in order of which one to read first to help your readers avoid spoilers or getting confused between different characters, plots and series.
Here’s an example on Emily Henry’s books in order you can refer to.
Books Set In A Specific Country
Compile a list of books from a specific country. Here’s a list of books I wrote that were set in Indonesia!
Books Set In A Specific Continent
This is on a wider point of view. Eg: instead of writing on Books Set In Indonesia Malaysia, Japan, etc – you can write one list that has a variation of books from all these asian countries titled as “Books Set In Southeast Asia To Read”
Books To Read Before You Travel To (Insert Country)
Have you ever travelled to a country only to wish that you’ve read certain books before your travel? I definitely had. This would be a fun travel literary guide for your readers.
(Booktoker/Booktuber/Bookstagrammer) Book Recommendation List
If you swear by a favourite book influencer recommendation, make a list of the books they recommend and share these great recommendations with your readers!
Books To Read In/During (Holiday/Festive Season)
Holidays and Festivities like Christmas, Valentine’s and Lunar New Year make great themed book recommendation lists for your readers.
Best (Genre) Books To Read
This is a fairly simple blog post idea. If you’re out of ideas, write about your favourite genre and what books you’d recommend.
Best Books From (Romance Trope) To Read
There are so many romance tropes to read and write about! Enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, sunshine-grumpy trope and more! Pick one and write a book recommendation list!
Books To Read Recommended By (Celebrity)
Famous people or celebrities often recommend books or even host their own book clubs. Compiling a list of their recommendations can be helpful to your readers.
Seasonal Themed Book Lists
Book Blog Post Idea #3 – Personal Book Blog Posts

Write a little bit about your favourite author, her background and compile a list of her books that you loved reading.

Include things like why they are your favourite and some of their book recommendations that you love. I have a list of best book bloggers on my blog that you can get inspiration from.
Your Favourite Book Covers
This is going to be a pretty book blog post idea! As readers, we don’t necessarily follow the rule – don’t judge a book by its cover.
Let’s face it, we’re guilty at times. We like to collect books with pretty covers. Might as well show them off in a blog post!
Books You DNF’d And Don’t Regret
Ever thought of making a list of books you did not finish reading?
I think this is a great idea – to talk about the books you did finish and plan to not finish it ever, plus why you decided to not finish the book.
Popular Books You Didn’t Enjoy Reading
This one is a controversial one, but it always sparks interest! You could do popular booktok or booktube recommendations!
Reading (number) books in 24 hours/48 hours/7 Days.
Document your reading challenge! It could be a diary sort of post that might interest some of your readers.

Books that are thicker, harder to understand due to the language (classics usually aren’t as easy to read) and maybe books that challenge your perspective on something you strongly believe in.
Your Top 10 Books From X Genre
There are many genres you’ve probably read and you can pick your top ten books to recommend!
Create A Reading Challenge
Go creative with this one. Create a reading challenge that is relevant to your blog’s brand or relevant to your favourite genre/author.
You can even create a challenge to read books from different cities/countries around the world.
Your Favourite Standalone Novels
Standalones are great for readers who do not want to commit to a series.
This is because we don’t want to read the first book and then have to wait a whole year for the second book. Or, if you don’t like the first book then you will not continue reading the series.
Book Blog Post Idea #4 – Monthly And Yearly Posts
Monthly TBR Post
This is not only for your readers, but also for yourself. So you can hold yourself accountable and work towards reading books from your TBR list.
