Helping voracious readers find their next great read since 2018.
Welcome to Reader Voracious Blog! I created this corner of the internet in March 2018 and it was born out of my love of books and desire to interact with other readers. I am intensely passionate about books and love to dive into the worlds created by authors and fall in love with their characters. Unfortunately not every book lives up to the hype (or its own synopsis), which is why I started Reader Voracious Blog. You can learn more about the gal behind the blog on my Meet Me page.
I try to post one review each week, ideally a mixture of backlist and upcoming titles (one day I will find balance!). All reviews on Reader Voracious are SPOILER-FREE so that you can read all about the science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, horror and occasional mystery/thriller novels to decide which ones you are likely to enjoy!
Other than book reviews, you will find bookish discussions, lists of upcoming releases, and guides & resources for readers/bloggers. I am an advocate for reading diversely and all of my reviews will list representation in the book, as well as content/trigger warnings.
Reader Voracious won the Most Helpful Blog Award in the 2020 Book Blogger Awards!
Reader Voracious Features
In addition to my normal posts, Reader Voracious Blog is home to a few initiatives that are important to me. As a blogger living in the United States, I recognize my privilege and want to use it to help international bloggers and
hopefully inspire change.
- The Reading Around the Globe series interviews readers around the world on their experiences. The series is geared at bringing awareness on global book access and hopefully to inspire change.
- The Flapping Pages International ARC Program serves as a hub for trading ARCs, with the focus of ensuring that more get into the hands of international and own voices readers.
- Diversity Index is a list of all diversity and representation tags on Reader Voracious. Clicking on the keyword will bring up all of my reviews and recommendation posts that fall into that category. This is a living list and new tags will continue to be added as I continue to read more diversely and come across more positive representation.
As Seen On…
In addition to being an award-winning blog, Reader Voracious is fortunate enough to be listed on a number of sites.

Hi, new here today. Found you by searching for info re: The StoryGraph and am sticking around! Love your mission and what I’ve seen so far— and also your graphics, holy smokes!! Your logos are gorgeous, I’m sprinting to your Patreon to see if there’s merch. When I say I need the header image on a Richardson snapback/trucker hat I mean I neeeed it.
Hi Maureen, thank you so much for your lovely comment! Welcome!!! Your question comes at an interesting time as I am in the beginning stages of looking into merch with the logo (shhh it’s a secret!). It may be awhile but I am excited to eventually have the logo on a racerback tanktop lol

Hi Kal, I was curious about your tagline “Adventures in Books and Nature” What is the nature part? Do you have a focus on nature books?
Hi Susan! The nature is more about being outdoors: hiking, camping, etc. 🙂

Dear Sir, Madam,
I am sending yourselves this email as I am the author of the children’s book series paramedic Chris which are aimed at educating children aged between four and ten years of age upon the works of the ambulance service.
I am looking to promote the audio book series and was wondering if you would be willing to do a review on the books?
I am more than happy to send over copies of the audio series for reviewing.
The series are also available on paperback and hardcover.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi, I have a book you might want to check out. It’s a Science Fiction and Adventure with a bit of humor.

We would like to introduce you to our brand new website, which has just gone online. Okay, perhaps introduce you to us! We hope you’ll take a moment to have a look at what we do.
We’re here – https://www.rtgreen.net
It’s not just a new website… in some ways it’s also a new concept in the book world. We’ve styled it to look like a bookshop, and added a couple of features not seen on other sites.
The Reading Room is one, a place to either read or download an extended preview of our books for free. Perhaps the biggest new feature is that the website is set up to offer our books directly to our readers as the primary option.
Authors selling their books on their own website is indeed a growing trend, but our new website puts it front and central. Our books are also available on most of the recognised platforms of course, but we are hoping some readers will buy direct, and we’re offering a big discount if they do.
As part of a far-reaching strategy, as the month progresses the RTG books will also be appearing on some ecommerce sites not usually associated with books. It’s all part of our new approach.
We realise it’s going to be a long road, but we’re determined to take those first few steps, and keep on striding!
We would like as many people as possible to know we are alive and kicking, but we’re not asking for anything from you… this is purely to let you know we exist, and that we’re bringing a fresh feel to everything book-related. If however you think we’re worth sharing with others, we’ll not object if you do!
We’ve also started a blog, which we hope will be a place to feature not only our words, but others too… maybe yours?
Thank you for reading this, and hopefully for taking a few minutes to have a look at our online efforts.
If you have any comments or suggestions, or wish to contribute a post, we’d love to hear from you.
Richard, Ann and the crew
