If you are a book blogger and facing writer’s block, then this post is for you!
As a book blogger, I used to only write reviews of books that I read. One fine day, I made a book list post and the amount of love I received on it made me want to explore more and find new ideas to book blogging.
We often feel hemmed in writing only review after review, but what if I tell you book blogging is also a great way to pen down fun, innovative ideas and get your creative juices flowing!
Here are some blog post ideas for you to check out.
Book Blog Post Ideas
Duh? Not a biggie! But review those books! It is okay(ish!!!!) if you don’t follow an ideal book review format. What is imperative is to WRITE them down.
Here are some of the book reviews I have penned on the blog.
Book Vs Movie
Many popular books are getting adapted to movies and TV series. Many are interested to know how the show has fared against its books or viceversa. For example, I somehow had the illusion that I wasn’t going to like Shadow and Bone (book) series. I love fantasy books but I just couldn’t bring myself to read the trilogy.
However, Ben Barnes made me watch the Netflix series and I’ve never been more in awe. I immediately got the books and read them all in a week. I was (still am!) addicted to the Darkling and I do not think I will get over him anytime soon.
That said, there are many like me who would love to compare books and movie.
P.S: I really should do a blog post on this!

This is one of my absolute favorite idea of a blog post. I am sure you’d like to have many recommendations on a single topic all delivered to you in a single blog post, right? Summarize the books in two to three sentences while writing book lists. You can also think outside the box and come up with topics.
Here are some examples:
- 17 Books by Black Women Authors: Perfect list post featuring authors
- Best Books by Anita Nair: List of books written by one author
- 17 LGBTQ+ YA Books to Read This Pride Month and Always: List based on a theme
- 19 Powerful Women Who Totally Slay It in Game of Thrones: List based on book characters or protagonists
- 11 Dumbledore Quotes to Live By: Quotes Ideas
- 5 Most Desirable Men from Literature: Another character list
- 13 Must-Read Classics for Kids: Who doesn’t love of list of children’s books!
- 9 Books That Will Make You Love Dogs Even More: Isn’t this a quirky and fun idea of a book list?
- 7 Reasons Why I Love Roald Dahl’s Matilda: Basically a book review turned into a list post.
- 5 Iconic Literary Villains: Character List, again!
If you can feature the author of a book you love, there is nothing like it. Have an engaging interview though.
Cover Reveals and Book Tours
Many book bloggers also do book cover reveals on their blogs of the upcoming popular books. You can also host book tours in association with publishers and authors.
Book Tags are a fun way to support fellow book bloggers. You can have a post with some great bookish questions and as you fill the answers and write a blog post, you tag another blogger. The chain goes on and it is like having a virtual book blogger party!
Unboxing Book Merch
Love book subscription boxes or bookish merchandise like bookmarks, bookish candles, jewelry, enamel pins, badges, funko pops and the likes? Write a blog post unboxing our finds.

Do you buy books (excessively!!) like me? Be it from Amazon, Online Bookshops, or Bookstores, do you almost always have at least 5 new books at the end of every month? Do a haul blog post featuring your finds.
Wrap-Ups and TBRs
Do a monthly, half-yearly, or annual wrap-up of books you’ve read. You can also do a TBR (To Be Read) book post at the beginning of every month about your book choices.
Host a Giveaway or Reading Challenge
If you are regular reader of this blog, you’d be a aware of the Reading Challenge that I host along with my bibliophile doggo. It’s a monthly reading challenge where you have to read at least one book that fits the prompt of the month. I also surprise fellow bloggers and bookstagrammers by sending books and Amazon gift cards to show appreciation.

How To Posts
Write blog posts that would help a fellow book blogger or book lover. How to Read More, How To Write a Book Review, and sharing your reading tips are some examples.
Are Audiobooks better? Do YA Books Have Merit? are some of the discussion posts you can do on your blog. You can also do character analysis, misinterpretation, stereotypes, and troupes too.
Who doesn’t love a good bookstagram tips and tricks post? Write about how you started your bookstagram, or how you take aesthetic pictures, hashtags and caption ideas, or the props you love for photographs.
Invite your favorite book blogger to your space to pen down a post for you. You can also feature some of your favorite book bloggers too.
Flaunt Your Home Library
Do you have a Pinterest and Gram-worthy home library? Flaunt it. Not just on your bookstagram, you can also write blog posts featuring your bookshelves and favorite bookish cafes.
That’s all from me! I hope you found these book blog ideas useful. I’d love to know your favorite topics to write too. Let me know in the comments section.

Oh my god, Shalini, you are a treasure of innovative ideas! I never thought of these ideas as a book blogger until I read you today. I liked the movie vs book comparison point. Though I have done a few author interview series on my blog, your idea of book lists also made me happy
