Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!
Books I Read Because A Blogger Recommended Them
I changed up today’s TTT topic a bit. Instead of books I bought/borrowed because… I’m going with books that I’ve read because bloggers recommended them. Now, there are a ton more books that bloggers have gotten me to pick up, so if your name or book recommendation isn’t on here please don’t feel left out. These are just ones I can remember for sure. 😉
Author: Rebecca Yarros
To be honest, I had already bought Rebel, but I wasn’t sure I wanted to read it anymore. The first two books in this series were just so lackluster for me. Then, I read Lenore’s review (Celebrity Readers) and decided I had to finish off the series. I’m glad I did because it was the best book in the series for sure.
2. Next Year in Havana
Author: Chantel Cleeton
I like Historical Fiction / Romance when I read it, but it’s not something I automatically reach for. When Nick (The Infinite Limits of Love) and Ari (formally of The Romance Corner) kept raving about it, I knew I needed to read it. It turned out to be one of my favorite books I read in 2019.
Authors: Meghan Quinn & Jessica Prince
This book has a HORRIBLE cover, but I have to thank Cristina (formerly of My Tiny Obsessions) for reviewing this book and making me want to read it. I liked it so much that I went on to read other books by Meghan Quinn and she has become one of my favorite go-to authors for romantic comedy.
4. The Guy on the Right
Author: Kate Stewart
I had previously read an older Kate Stewart book that wasn’t my thing. I wasn’t planning on reading another one of her books until I read Daisy Gal’s (DG Book Blog) review of this gem. I’m so happy I read this book because it was also a favorite of mine from last year.
5. Boys of Brayshaw High
Author: Meagan Brandy
Okay, so I’m going to admit that this book isn’t the best one she’s written or even a favorite series of mine. What it did do was fill a hole in my reading heart that Tijan’s Fallen Crest High left. I have Kayla (Books and Blends) for pointing me in the direction of Meagan Brandy for when I need some extra crazy drama in my romance.
Author: Fredrik Backman
When Stephanie (Stephanie’s Book Reviews) and Brandie (Running on Words and Wine) raved about Beartown I knew I had to read it. I tend to lean mostly toward romance, but when these ladies both say a novel is good I know I need to read it. I ended up loving this book.
7. Six of Crows
Author: Leigh Bardugo
When Six of Crows came out, it wasn’t a book I wanted to read automatically. It was reviews like the one Lois (My Midnight Musing) wrote that made me pick it up.
8. Bad Business
Authors: Nicole Edwards
I love a good sports romance, so when Jessica (Reading with Jessica) was swooning over this one I knew I had to read it. I enjoyed how low drama it was.
9. Don’t Tempt Me
Author: Lori Foster
I know Lori Foster has been around for a long time, but I never picked up one of her books until Debby (alwaysbooking) was raving about them on her blog. I still need to read more from her.
10. The Sweet Gum Tree
Author: Katherine Alread
The Sweet Gum Tree deserves a mention because I would not have read it if it wasn’t for Stephanie and Brandie again.
