Indie Book Blogs
Here are 25 Best Indie Book Blogs you should follow in 2023
1. Indie Reader
New York, US
IR's launch in 2009, we have reviewed thousands of self-published titles. We have also seen most of the negativity directed to self-publishing disappear, to the point where indie books regularly make the major bestseller lists, win major literary awards, and sell hundreds of thousands of copies. Our Reviewers won't judge your book as compared to other self-published titles, but against other books, period.
