Carole’s Random Life in Books

All things books! Reviews, New Releases, & More!

Only Picture Books

Like the name says, this is where picture books are reviewed, showcased, and celebrated. We also have lots of picture book stuff (interviews, lists, etc.) of interest to teachers, librarians, writers, illustrators, editors, publishers, and publicists who operate in this specific part of the kidlit world.

Renaissance Vector Press

Renaissance Vector Press is a blog dedicated to the discussion and review of any and all works of science (or speculative) fiction. I love to feature new or first-time authors, so don’t be shy! This is exclusively a sci-fi blog, so please be advised when submitting works that fall clearly outside that fuzzy circle. Happy to entertain pitches for reviews, author interviews, Q&As, or spotlights. Something else? Hit me! I cross-post to Goodreads.

Tea and Cake for the Soul

Tea and Cake for the Soul is my way of giving a little something back. I share things that will help people and lift their soul, whether it’s a tip, a travel destination, practical advice or a book to read and enjoy. Everything I share is purely for the love so you can be guaranteed of a genuine review or story.

Black Books Blog

Within my blog I will be reviewing all the books I read and also interviewing authors when they have book launches. I am also involved in lots of Blog tours for various Publishers and Independent authors so if you are looking for an honest review of a new book then look no further. Also if you are a Blog Tour organiser then get in contact and I will see what I can do for you.

If you are an author who has a book released soon tell when it is and if you want to appear in my meet the author section then contact me and I will try include it.

I am also featuring in blog tours to promote new books from various publishers.

All of my reviews are honest and impartial

Helping readers find their latest book boyfriend and author addictions.


GlobeTrove is primarily a travel blog but I love to write about books to travel with. I can’t imagine going on a vacation or even stepping on a plane without a book to keep me company and most of my audience feels the same!

Syllables of Swathi

Driven by passion for books, I started my blog as a journal to keep note of the vast number of books I read! Slowly, very steadily I started sharing my reviews with my bookish friends, and soon I’ve pages dedicated to books on Facebook and Instagram where People loved talking and reading about new books, updates and recommendations! Now, I’m a professional reviewer at Netgalley and Edelweiss for a steady flow of E-books and trying to build a healthy contact with top notch publishers to request print copies as well. I’m hoping this platform would help me get in touch with bloggers from different backdrops and genres and I’m really hoping to make new friends!

Books and Stuff

This blog is where I like to share with you the books I’ve read or the podcasts I’m listening to. I will also sometimes talk about a film I liked or loved. Read my reviews and let’s talk about it.

It’s a Mystery

I love mysteries; books, television shows and movies. I share books I have read and some “mystery” television shows and movies. I mostly read and post about mysteries, but I occasionally read other genres and post reviews about those books also. I also feature individual authors and their works.
