Chick Lit Reviewshttp://chicklitreviews.com/
British literature blogs can understandably carry a stuffy reputation. These are sites you visit to seriously intellectualize, to lift analytical dumbbells with literary heavyweights, right? Chick Lit Reviews thankfully provides a cleanse to the biblio-mania. The site focuses on works that appeal to women and older girls who would take happy hour over Hemingway, but who still adore a good book. That said, don't expect fluff exclusively. These reviewers wield tough mugs when they need to.
"Britain's first book blogger" has commendably remained among the country's best composed and most compulsively readable literary sites. Blogger Steve utilizes This Space as a low-suds soapbox for his opinions on literature and its interactions with life. At the same time, he frequently posts queries and ideas that urge viewers to consider the nuances and preferences of their own readership. This mental interactivity sets This Space apart and keeps it at must-read status.

Poetry continues to play an unfortunate second fiddle in the opera of literary art forms. While fiction courts the lion's share of mass glamor and attraction, you can often be hard-pressed to locate more than one die-hard poetry fanatic per thousand-mile radius. Blogger Katy successfully defies this poetical disrespect. Sonnets, paeans, and great contemporary work in poetry receive lovingly rendered reviews and opinions. An endless wave of critical hosannas corroborates BiH's excellence.
