List of Indian Book Bloggers (Book Reviewers)

Book reviewers are the most sought-after group of bloggers when an author launches his/her book. They help in giving the book a digital presence, boosts the confidence of the author (in most cases), and spread the word about the book through social media. 



Here is a list for the benefit of those seeking active, dedicated Indian bloggers who are open to review books. You can find their contact details on their website which I have mentioned next to their name. The genres they prefer are also listed.


I have interacted with these bloggers online, via their blogs or social media. 

Also included in the list is a dear friend, Jean Spraker, who is a US-based writer and blogger who supports Indian writers whenever possible. I feel she is more Indian than many of us. Being an editor herself, her reviews are mostly detailed and constructive.
