7 types of book bloggers we’ve all seen.

Book bloggers are AMAZING, okay? Hit up any book blog and several hours later, you’ll have exactly 96 book recommendations, gazillion more blogs to follow, and an inspiration to write more.

We book bloggers may be from different corners of the world and have our own unique styles, but there are certain types of book bloggers we’ve all seen.

Here are 7 of those book blogger types.

1. The Reviewer, with an uppercase “r”.


I have no idea how The Reviewer finds time to read, but they post a review almost every day. They are the bloggers that the general audience usually look up to for book recommendations, because they read so much.

Hey, The Reviewer with an uppercase “r”, how are you able to read so many books in a year? What sorcery is this? Do you want to be my best friend?

2. Fangirl Fran



So. Many. GIFs.

Fran fangirls over every book she reads. Sources inform that her caps lock is worn, her internet search history is full of Giphy pages, and she was last seen making seal noises at a fellow blogger’s review of her favorite book.

If you’re Fran, I want you to know that I love you. ❀

3. In-exchange-for-an-honest-review Isabel


ARCs galore! Isabel is the best blogger to follow if you want recommendations on recent releases. She reviews all the new books and her reviews are completely honest.

Isabel also suffers from the NetGalley addiction syndrome and that’s why she’s reviewing so many ARCs. Isabel has a panic attack occasionally, when she remembers all the publication dates of books she hasn’t reviewed yet approaching. I may or may not be Isabel.

4. Occasional Oscar


Oscar blogs occasionally. During the few weeks that he graces the blogging world with his presence, you’re really excited. Because, here’s a person who not only puts out amazing content, but also leaves a heartfelt comment on every single post you put up during the time he’s active.

…and then, POOF! Oscar out. See ya again a year later, pal!

5. Discussions Debra


Debra, hands down, wins the discussion posts game. She addresses all the issues that need to be discussed, and readers can’t wait to drop their two cents into the comments section.

6. I-heart-tags Taylor


Much of Taylor’s blog has posts that are tags and memes. Taylor has mastered the art of creating and writing tags. Spot a new tag in the blogosphere? Taylor’s already done it. And they probably already nominated you to do it, too, but you didn’t notice because of who you are as a person.


7. Commenter Chloe


Chloe is always around in the blogosphere. She leaves kind and supportive comments on every blog post she reads. How she has time to do this, no one knows, but I’m sure we all love her and she is THE person we write our content for.

If you are a Chloe, know that bloggers love and value your opinions on their content. πŸ™‚


Do you fall under any of these types? I’m a Fran, with the occasional Isabel thrown in. Have I missed any other type? Add your suggestions to the list in the comments section!

  1. This is such an awesome list! I may or may not also fall under the Isabel category πŸ˜‚

    I might also add a Giveaway Guru Greg. There are some bloggers I’ve seen who seem to have a new giveaway every time I visit their blog!

    1. Hahaha, Isabels are amazing! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

      Also, Giveaway Guru Greg is an awesome addition to the list! How do bloggers always have a giveaway up? Just thinking of having one tires me out. But I love entering giveaways, though. πŸ˜‚

  2. Hahaha, I love this post so much! I’m also amazed at bloggers who manage to constantly be posting reviews. I don’t know how so many bloggers are able to read & review so many books!!

  3. Well you missed the “diversity” type that would be me among others. The blogger that tries to review, promote, have disucssions, interview authors, do tags and meme and try to comment on others posts πŸ˜‰ It’s the exhausted but enthusiast kind of blogger LOL

  4. I think I’m a reviewer with an R but also a bit of an Isobel. In my defence, I’ve only got four books on my Netgalley shelf just now and I’m currently reading one of them. 😊

        1. I’m not! I actually like Oscars the best because they (you) leave a lot of sweet comments in the brief time you spend on the blogosphere. But I think you’re a lot more regular than you give yourself credit for. 😁


  5. Great post, Shruti! Though I’m not exactly a book blogger (I’m VERY tempted to convert), I guess (emphasis on guess) I’d be a discussion Debra or a Fangirl Fran. Maybe.

      1. Wow! Glad I’m considered a part of the book blogging community!πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ Another thing: have you read Confessions of a book lover by Ruskin Bond? It’s a GREAT book! Real hilarious😁

  6. YO SHRUTI HOW YA DOIN?! *oops didn’t mean to scream* I have been pulling off an Occasional Oscar since the last two months. Can’t help it. School is chainsawing the shiz outta me XD. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS POST, GURL. KEEP THAT AMAZHANG CONTENT COMING. πŸ’ŸπŸ’Ÿ

    1. ANJJJJ! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? BEDS EMPTY, NO NOTE, CAR GONβ€”okay, okay, I’ll stop. πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚

      Who cares about school when you can be screamed at by random people on the Internet, anyway? Start putting out your magical content soon, Oscar! 😁

      Also, you’re a Chloe. You leave supportive comments. End of discussion. 😁😁


  7. This post is GOLD, okay? Gold! I had never really thought of what types of bloggers are out there but I definitely had a few people pop into my head as I read over your list! I feel like I might be Fran – but not so much on my blog, definitely on Twitter though!

  8. Oh my gosh, this post πŸ˜€ it will be shared and shared (by me!) Instant follow too πŸ˜€ great job, honestly! Cracked me up.
    I think I might be a touch of Isabel with a case of Chloe xD hoping to become a little more Debra, though. What a great post, honestly.
    There should also be a type of a fretting blogger who worries about stats and popularity. But I guess that’s all of us? πŸ˜€ well… maybe most πŸ™‚
    Looking forward to see your new posts on my feed! ❀

    1. Thanks so much, Evelina! ❀️😁 And the fretting blogger? Yeah, most of us are concerned about stats, but I think some are more concerned than others. 😁

      Your ARE a Chloe! Such kind words in a comment! 😁❀️


  9. This is such a great post!! I love reading your posts! 😁 I think I’m a mix of all of these but lean more towards being a Chloe! I can’t help but comment on all of the wonderful posts I read! πŸ˜„

  10. So funny! I’ve just started to try to be a better blogger and leave comments where I can, so the Chloe cap fits, but it also seems to fit an awful lot of other people too, I had to scroll a LONG way down to find the comments box on this post today.
    I’m might also fit the the reviewer with an ‘r’, but only because I run a review team, so we can post a review each day. (cheating I know, but there are so many books out there, this way we cover loads more).
    So glad to find this post today.

    1. It’s okay if you have a review team. I’m in constant awe of any blog that has frequent book reviews. So, *cue my Hagrid impression* yer a Reviewer, Rosie. 😁

      I think all of us fit the Chloe cap at some time or the other. We all feel the need to leave a supportive and friendly comment when we read a relatable post! 😊


  11. I think I am Isabel (I’m a member of Rosie’s review team too) but I hope someday I’ll find a way to make a living out of reading books and can become a Reviewer. Great post! (Yes, I try to be Chloe too)!

  12. HI THERE! I’m super new to your blog, and I am in LOVE with it. So real and honest. I am a Chloe and Oscar kind of person. Like, sometimes, I’ll slip into Taylor-mode, but I am trying not to post so many tags (I promise).

  13. I love this post so much!! I can’t believe I’ve never seen it. I think I’m an Isabel. I know a Chloe who is also a Reviewer (Dani from Bookish Dani. I have no idea how she does it!!), a Taylor (J.W Martin) and a Fran (this is definitely Mandy from Book Princess Reviews)πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
