“Balls, I don’t know what to write!!!”

There are some days when this thought has crossed my mind. Sitting frozen in front of a computer screen or an unwritten notebook page doesn’t count as quality time for drafting new blog content.

As a reference for myself and fellow bloggers reading this post, I present to you thirty-three post ideas to get out of book bloggers’ block.

1. Book Reviews

Liked the book you read? Blog about it!

Read a book and your eyes are bleeding because it was so bad? Blog about that too!

2. Mini – Book Reviews

Shorter versions of regular ol’ book reviews (no higher than 300 words).

3. Your Favorite Books

I’m sure you have one or two, right?

4. Your Least Favorite Books

It’s okay to blog about the books that left a bad taste in your mouth. Go for it!

5. Favorite Childhood Books

Share a couple of your books from your childhood. A few of mine were The Berenstain BooksThe Magic School Bus, and Goosebumps.

6. Required Class Readings You Enjoyed

Sometime during your high school career, you probably read some of these books:

Trying to remember what you read back in high school? This awesome list of required high school readings from Goodreads may help.

7. Required Class Readings You Absolutely Loathed

One high school required reading I could not stand was William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying. Sorry, Faulkner.

8. Books You’re Planning to Read

9. Recommended Readings Based on Genre

Genres like:

  • Adventure
  • Biography/Memoir
  • Fantasy/Supernatural
  • Horror
  • Mystery/Suspense/Thriller
  • Poetry
  • Romance/Erotica
  • Sci-Fi
  • Southern
  • Young Adult

10. Recommended Readings Based on Author

Think about the books you’ve read from your favorite authors and create posts about them.

11. A Life-Changing Book

12. A Book You Read Outside Your Usual Choices

Let’s say you usually read general adult books but you decide to take a break from them to read a YA book. Write about that experience.

13. Your Book Haul

Personally, my definition for “book hauls” are planned books I’ll read the upcoming month but I’ve seen bloggers mention book hauls as books they’ve read the previous.

LOL, oh well, either way should be fine.

14. “The Top (whatever number) Books of the Year”

15. “The Best Books of the Month”

16. Book Tours

17. Author/Blogger Interviews

18. Author Blurbs

An author “blurb” is a short post about an author’s life, a small bibliography of their latest work, and awards.

19. Your Favorite Authors

20. Book vs. The Movie (or TV Show)

Let’s say you have conflicting views on The Hunger Games movies after reading the books. You can discuss what the movies done right and wrong in a post.

Other examples:

21. “If You Liked This Movie/TV Show…”

Recommended readers to books based on trending movies and/or TV shows.

22. Convention/Festival Coverage

Post about the latest book convention you’ve been to where you probably met a couple of authors and grabbed tons of books.

23. Book Box Reveal

Ordering books in boxes seem to be all the rage these days. If only they had one for new age books…

Here’s a small list of book box subscriptions to get you started:

24. Giveaways!

‘Cause people like free stuff!

25. A Fictional Character You Would Date

You know you have one…or two…or three…

26. Master Shelf List

The “Master Shelf” post is a list of the books you would keep on your shelf and read repeatedly until the end of time.

27. Recipe Post

Create a dish inspired by a book you’ve read. For Harry Potter fans, make your own butterbeer and chocolate frogs then share the recipes for your readers.

28. A DIY Post

Into arts and crafts? Create something made from your book inspirations!

29. Secrets

Did you chuck that Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy gift set your significant other gave you last Valentine’s Day? Kept a book hidden in your room from your nosy, conservative parents?Have any guilty pleasure books?

“Secrets” are posts reserved for your book confessions.

30. Favorite Book Bloggers/Booktubers List
