Top Ten Books I Read Because of Another Blogger
Oh wow…I’m going to suck at this, but only if you expect me to remember exactly who recommended it! Let’s see…
- Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton – I can’t remember who suggested this one. It was probably quite a few people. I snagged it when it became available as an eGalley on NetGalley.
- The Hunger Games (series) by Suzanne Collins – I read this because of Bree over at All The Books I Can Read. Seriously – it was all over the blogosphere and I avoided it like the plague just because I tend to take some convincing. There’s never any telling if the book(s) is/are worth the hype. These are. Read them if you haven’t, you won’t regret it.
- The Passage by Justin Cronin – Another that I read because of the darling Bree. I absolutely loved this one – so dark and twisty and wonderful. The only downside to reading it is that the sequel isn’t due out til next year. 2012! I read it in 2010! Ugh! Oh well, I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait.
- Delirium by Lauren Oliver – Can’t remember, but it was a blogger!
- Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater – Only about a dozen or so bloggers who I follow via Twitter/RSS/etc. It was all over the place. Loooooved it!
- Room by Emma Donoghue – I first saw this mentioned by Laura over at I’m Booking It (I think?). Also, again, Bree. I requested an ARC from the publisher and got it…didn’t expect THAT to happen… Definitely loved this one, and I’m glad I read it.
- Birthmarked by Caragh M. O’Brien – Definitely can’t remember who suggested this one. It flew by in a flurry of twitter activity and I looked it up. Definitely was a blogger, though!
- Firelight by Sophie Jordan – Do not remember….but I do know I saw it at Barnes & Noble, didn’t buy it because I’m cheap, then came home and saw a slew of recommendations on twitter from bloggers I follow and went back to get it. I am odd, I know.
- The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness – Annnnd another I can’t remember specifics of…though I believe this is one I read because someone bashed it pretty hard.
- Nightshade by Andrea Cremer – I saw Pam from Bookalicio.us talking about this one and after reading the synopsis, I figured I had to have it. I still haven’t read the 2nd in this series, but I will eventually.
