Do you take any notice of publishers? Before becoming a book blogger I never really paid attention to who published a book or what kinds of books certain publishers put out. Obviously I’d heard of companies such as Penguin or Bloomsbury, but I never gave it deeper thought. But now I find that I pay close attention to publishers and the kind of books they put out.
I love all the publishers I’m lucky enough to work with, but today I wanted to highlight an independent publisher that I absolutely adore: Orenda Books.
With Orenda I not only know I’m going to get a book that’s well written, I also know I’m probably going to get something a bit different. They work with a wide range of authors, including many in other countries, and I’m yet to read a book from this publisher that I didn’t like. The blog tours for this publisher fill up fast and I’m really excited about the three Orenda books I’ll be reviewing for tours in June.
I love these books so much that this year I even started a subscription with Bert’s Books to receive a book from Orenda each month so I can grow my collection. It’s a great way to support an independent bookshop and under publisher at the same time. Bert even emails you each month to make sure you’re happy with the selection, offering an earlier book if it’s part of series you’re not up to date on or an alternative title if you’d prefer.
Here are some links to some of my reviews of books that are published by Orenda:
Hinton Hollow Death Trip by Will Carver
A Song of Isolation by Michael J. Malone
Ash Mountain by Helen Fitzgerald
Betrayal by Lilja Sigurdardottir
You can find out more about Orenda Books on their website here or follow them on their Twitter and Instagram.

I have read at least 20 Orenda titles. To date, my favorites have been “Breakers” by Doug Johnstone and “The Bird Tribunal” by Agnes Ravatn

I’ve not read either of those. I will definitely prioritise them though 😊
