42 Post Ideas for Bookbloggers

I know that sitting staring at a blank screen can be a pretty daunting thing. We’ve all sat there staring at the flashing cursor mocking you. But it doesn’t have to.

Sometimes you just need a bit of inspiration, a little giddy-up in the creative department of your brain. Within this post I’ll give you a few ideas for your next blog post, or, if you really like them, your next month could be planned out in the next hour!

So castaway that can’t-write-a-thing-itis with these 42 post ideas for Bookbloggers.

  1. Post a popular opinion that you have, and why. For example, everyone loves Harry Potter but why do you, in particular, think he’s the best thing since sliced bread?
  2. Do you have any unpopular opinions? For example, do you think Tolkien can’t write or Harry Potter sucks? Unpopular opinions are always a great way to start a debate. Warning – don’t start an argument for the sake of it, the unpopular opinion should be genuine.
  3. If you could sit down for lunch with any 5 authors, alive or dead, who would you choose? Why would you choose them? Also, what would you kick off the conversation with? “Hey there Mr Orwell, so ummm, have you seen that we have CCTV now?”.
  4. What genre do you read? What made you choose this to begin with?
  5. If you could be any character from a book, who would you be? And why?
  6. List posts; these are always fun to do, things like Top 10 fantasy worlds, Top 20 books you need to read.
  7. Just for fun, if you could rewrite a novel, which one would it be? What would you do differently?
  8. Who are you? Readers are always interested in seeing behind the screen. So why not post a few little bits about you, the use of personal photos always helps as well. Warning – a respectable amount of ‘personal’ is ok but too much is, well, too much πŸ˜›
  9. Shelf-related posts – people are obsessed with bookshelves so it may be a good idea to take some pictures of yours. It doesn’t matter if it’s super tidy or massively untidy, it’s interesting.
  10. Do a monthly or bi-monthly summary of your favourite books/posts/events on your blog. Readers may have missed this and want to go back and have a look.
  11. No doubt your ‘To Be Read pile’ is huuuuge, so tell people about it, maybe they can offer some thoughts on which book you should read next.
  12. Do you have any books that you Did Not Finish (DNF)? Tell people about them and why you couldn’t finish them. People always have an opinion on this and more often than not, they’ll give you a reason to persevere.
  13. If you were stranded on a desert island with only three books, which ones would you have?
  14. What are your favourite blogs, and why?
  15. Who are your favourite bloggers?
  16. Look at some of your favourites; i.e. authors, books, website, publishers – point readers in the direction of some awesome authors and their books, they’ll thank you for it.
  17. What are your favourite books that have been adapted for cinema and you really enjoyed?
  18. What are your favourite books that have been adapted for cinema that didn’t go so well?
  19. Are there any film/TV crossover that you really enjoyed? Are there any that you absolutely hated?
  20. Are there any books you love that have been made for TV? If so, what did you think of them?
  21. What you’ve learned from blogging. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been blogging, there are always lessons that you’ve learned.
  22. If you could live in a fictional world which one would you choose, and why?
  23. What mistakes have you made since you started blogging? How did you fix them?
  24. If you could send a letter back in time that you would want your younger self to read, what would it say?
  25. What would you do differently if you could go back and have a conversation with yourself before you started blogging?
  26. Try reviewing a novella or short story – what was different for you? How did you find the shorter format?
  27. If you only read a certain genre, mixing it up. Tell readers what you did or didn’t like.
  28. What are your favourite book covers like, ever?
  29. What was the first book you read? What impact did this book have on you? For example, you may now be a doctor because you read Humpty Dumpty and just wanted to put people back together again.
  30. Are there any topics that have been burning in the back of your mind for a while? If so, talk about them. You know, why does a lot of fantasy have swords and dragons in it?
  31. Interview an author or a fellow blogger; give your readers some inside information.
  32. Have another blogger guest post for you, it could be something you’ve already talked about but they have a different view.
  33. What makes you pick up a book?
  34. What makes you buy a book?
  35. What is the best blurb you’ve ever read?
  36. Who is your least favourite character of all time?
  37. Where do you read? Post some pictures as well, it’ll draw back the curtain a little bit.
  38. Do you have any habits when it comes to reading? For example, do you like have to have a cup of coffee while you do it? Do you listen to music or watch TV at the same time?
  39. Promote some of your favourite Booktubers or book-related Instagrammers – you could even have a ‘share party’.
  40. Try something funky like reviewing with a limited number of words. I once tried to review Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 50 words, it was soo hard but super fun. (Have a laugh at my attempt here)
  41. Book romances; love them or hate them?
  42. Now this one’s a bit dark, but if you died, which author would you choose to write your obituary, and why? What would they say about you? I’d love for David Gemmell to rewrite my life as if I lived like Druss. Ahh one can only dream.

I hope you enjoyed this list of 42 post ideas for Bookbloggers and I’m super excited to see what you come up with. Feel free to post links to any that you have used, or even better, put forward some more ideas, I may pinch a few of them myself!
