    I don’t read many book blogs (so busy w toddlers) but my favorite is Mundie Moms. When they rave about a book you want to read it immediately. When they review a book they speak the wording is clear and not so quoting a book sleeve but just how they feel about the book yet not many spoilers to spoil it for you. They show you their new books (on Instagram) received and you wanna get the same.

  • Reply Lila December 17, 2015 at 4:44 pm

    Her blog is so cute, and she always replies to everyone’s comments. Her content is perfect, it’s personal, but yet it’s still really relatable, and the books she talks about are always amazing. She sometimes posts non-book related things but I think that makes it even better as it mixes it up and keeps it personal to her. Her photos are stunning (as is she…….!!!) and I always enjoy seeing them on her blog and Instagram, and she just really really deserves this, and I think all her instagram followers will agree
