Book Bloggers Influencing Book Bloggers

Today's Book Blogger Appreciation Week task is to talk about books I've read that I read solely because other book bloggers recommended them.

I actually try to mention when I read books because bloggers recommend them, but I figured I would highlight some of my reviews for books that were highly recommended by other book bloggers.

1. Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas
2. The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

While I am making a concerted effort to remember who recommends books that I end up reading, I have been incredibly terrible about it. I promise to do better in the future.

This will be a fun post to do - I will get mine up tomorrow. :)

I have to remember where I see things as well. :)

I loved The Uncommon Reader! I need to read the other two books soon! ;)

I was just saying to Alyce the same thing. One time I impulsively ordered a book from the library, read it, and was writing up the review and trying to remember what inspired me to get it. I searched through all of my favorite blogs looking for the lead. Come to find out, I got the review from EW. I'm such a dingbat that way. I need to start writing things down. (I sit her and say this, but I doubt I will ever do it!)

I don't keep track of where I heard about books, but I should. I think I remember a few so I can participate in the meme. LOL

I usually don't keep track of where I heard about a book from but I do remember a couple of titles that I read solely because other bloggers recommended them. Some were misses more than hits too.

You have added a lot of books to my mile long TBR pile. Although I might not remember the specific books.

I just recently started keeping track of where I've heard about books in my good reads account. It's been tough for me to remember.

I don't think I would have ever picked out The Book Thief if it hadn't been for book bloggers. And, what a great book that is. One of my all-time favorites.

Today's topic is reminding me of all the books that are buried in my TBR stack. The Book Theif is one of them. Man, I need to get going!

The Book Thief was a great book! I have Tallgrass waiting for me on my Library Loot stack. So I'll be reading it very soon.

I'm shocked that you didn't mention your partner in crime on this post - I thought you two influenced each other's reading a lot.

Serena said...

Actually, I'm surprised myself that I didn't mention her either. LOL

#2 - yep
#3 - yep

I read both of those thanks to all y'all. I'm still holding out on #1.

I am terrible about remembering who recommended what too. I sometimes keep track, but then I forget and it's all downhill from there. Someday I'll figure out a system that works.

The Uncommon Reader is really good! I have the other 2, but haven't read them yet...
