Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
This Week’s Theme:
Male Book Bloggers In The Community
(And Where To Find Them)
“Where are all the male book bloggers?” you ponder.
They don’t exist.
Nah, we’re just a tiny minority (last I heard, we’re 12% strong), so I’mma just vomit as many names I know of despite not actually having interacted with most of them (?) — and this is going to read very stalker-ish — but I assure you, I’m only slightly creepy. Huh?
This isn’t some master list of curated voices from all platforms (re: I didn’t highlight booklr because I don’t really use tumblr).
This list will be updated if/when I discover more voices.
Blogger Tally: 35 (not including Bookstagram/BookTube)
Canada: 3 (yes, I included myself)
South America: 1
Southeast Asia: 6

…that’s all I got LOL.
You’re probably already familiar with the bigger names so I’m not going to give them a shout. Just going to highlight a few that I watch on occasion:
…if you need CanLit, this dude’s an awesome reference point.
…if you’re familiar with Khanh (“the Grinch”) on Goodreads, then listening to Andrew shit on books is the equivalent. I’m serious.
…this isn’t really his channel (it’s Jamie’s) but whenever he sporadically appears here and there on the tubes. Plus, they’re a wonderful couple.
Holy fuck this post took forever to curate.
…and I’m not even going to begin with Goodreads only users.
