Bloggers I Recommend, With Links- {Planned Ahead}

HI all... again! I am writing this post ahead of time so I can end out the year with it. Now I want to share with you my go-to blogs for individual genres.

I'm not implying that any of them are a "one-trick pony" (or only concentrate on the one genre), but check them out if these are genres you like to read. Many can be cross-referenced for all different fun genres. These are the ones I know of and enjoy the most. YMMV!

Note: I visit all the ones listed below, even though I'm guilty of lurking more than commenting. Hear, hear for New Year's resolutions in blogging! In no particular order:

*for contemporary family dramas, dysfunctional relationship fiction:
  1. Laurel-Rain Snow, author and blogger of many blogs: her list of blogs
