It's day 3 of BBAW! Today We're supposed to talk about books we've read because of a fellow blogger.
Oh my gosh! My TBR list used to be like maybe 200 books. Now It's over 700 and that's with me going through it every once and awhile and purging it! So, how did it get to be that much? I started blogging!
I used to keep track of every book recommendation and add it to my reviews. So if my friend Suey read and loved a book that looked good to me I'd add it to Goodreads and make a note that she was the one who recommended it. Then link back to her review in my review. Alas, I stopped doing that. I was never sure if anyone even noticed or used the link. Maybe I should bring it back? What do you think?
Back to talking about books that I've read because of a fellow blogger. I'm going to give a shout out to my friend Susan of Bloggin' 'Bout Books. Lately everything she reads looks just fascinating. Her reviews (when they're in favor of the book) make me want to go right out and buy said book right now and read it RIGHT now!
Here's a few books I've read because of her...
Pines by Blake Crouch.
This one just looked too mysterious and weird not to read! I inhaled in in two days and am very intrigued. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series.
Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
This was one of my favorite books last year. This book deserves way more praise than it's getting. Magical realism at it's best here, folks!
And because of Susan I've added these little gems to my TBR list. I have no doubt they'll be just as good.
It's about a survivor of a serial killer. It sounds very mysterious and exciting!
(I didn't link this one to Susan because I can't find her review of it. Now I'm thinking maybe I didn't even see this one on her blog but I SWEAR I did. So maybe she was talking about it?? Correct me if I'm wrong, Susan)
The Sparrow Sisters by Ellen Herrick
It sounds like a delightful magic realism reminiscent of Sarah Addison Allen only maybe a bit darker.
So what about you? What books have you read because of a fellow blogger?
