We all struggle with motivation and inspiration sometimes and no matter how hard we try, get a creative block and can’t come up with ideas for a blog post for the life of us. I’ve been there, we’ve all been there. So I don’t think there’s any shame in asking, looking or offering help for people stuck in those inspiration-ruts. So today I want to share with you some blog post ideas for book bloggers!

Blog Post Ideas for Book Bloggers

I haven’t been a book blogger for some time now but I remember when I was, I definitely went through phases of being really stuck with what to write. When you niche down so much and stick to one topic, it can get that way sometimes. But it’s nothing that a little helping hand can’t fix!

I personally like to have a whole bank of blog post ideas to go so I don’t get super stuck if I ever find myself in a creative rut. The great thing about books is that any avid reader is always reading and consuming more and more books. Therefore, always giving themselves content ideas, without even realising!

In this post I’m sharing 45 blog post ideas for book bloggers, for anyone who’s a little stuck on inspiration. There’s a whole variety of categorized posts, from lists, discussions, personal and more to choose from!

Blog post ideas for book bloggers:

#1 Review postsΒ 

Let’s start with the basic and most popular blog post idea for book bloggers which is obviously book reviews and one of the main reasons most book bloggers start out in the first place:

  • A Book Review of a Book You’ve Bought
  • A Book Review of a Book You’ve Been Sent
  • A Review of a Full Series
  • A Review of a Book Tour Book
  • A Review of a Book-To-Film Adaptation

#2 Discussion posts

I remember the first ever discussion post I wrote was about whether libraries were a thing of the past and it was GREAT to hear my readers opinions on the topic. Discussion posts are likely to contain a lot of your own opinions, so definitely be prepared to have discussions with others who might not share your views on these sort of posts:

  • Things You’d Like To See More/Less Of in Books
  • Controversial Book Discussion
  • What You Thought of a Book-To-Film Adaptation
  • Discussion About a Current Book Trope
  • What You Think About Hyped Up Books
  • A Discussion About Libraries
  • X Thoughts Whilst Reading____

#3 List posts

List posts are GREAT because they’re easy to digest and everyone loves a list. Myself included. There are SO many list post ideas you can take advantage of as a book blogger, here are just a few to get you started:

  • X Books That Made You Cry/Laugh/Scared
  • Monthly Reading Wrap-Up
  • Recent Book Hauls
  • Books You’d Like To Read This Month / Year
  • Upcoming Releases You’re Looking Forward To
  • Books Set In a Certain Country You Want To Read
  • Hyped Up Books You Want To Read
  • Blogging Prompts Post

#4 Tips and advice posts

Personal posts might not be the best for SEO but they’re definitely great for engagement and relating to your audience. Personal posts can offer up a lot of insight into you as a blogger and as a person, allow people to learn more about you and also encourage great discussion about the topics you’re talking about:

  • Your Favourite Book To Film Adaptations

  14. Thanks Jenny. There are so many angles to books, aren’t there!. Not just the enjoyment of reading them but appreciation of the places to which they sometimes transport you. I love it when just a particular sentence or quotation you read in a book sends you off down another path entirely…Like serendipity.. x.

  15. As I mentioned on FB, this was exactly what I needed today. I used one of your ideas and wrote a post this morning about my summer reading wish list. It’ll go live tomorrow. πŸ™‚ Thank you again!

      1. Something’s come up that I wrote about instead, but I’ll try to remember to link to you a week from tomorrow instead. Thanks.

  16. This post is so helpful. I love talking about books on my blog but I was running out of post ideas! Thank you for sharing!
