I am one of those people who believes a book blog isn't always about reviews. I'd just leave 100% reviews to Goodreads or Amazon and the likes. If you believe the same thing, high five! Herewith I gather 15 blog post ideas for you in case you face blogger's block (we've all been there) and hopefully, it will help you brainstorming for your new contents.
These prompts are actually questions I'd like to ask to fellow book bloggers. Sometimes, a bookworm can get to excited posting all reviews talk, where in fact, we as the readers, do want to know more about the blogger. So, if you are interested in writing different kind of bookish stuffs, here they are! Of course, if you have other ideas to add, feel free to drop them in the comment section *winks*
