This week for Top Ten Tuesday, the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish are letting bloggers pick any past topic. Last week I listed things I love about being a reader and blogger, and that topic inspired this week’s choice! I’m listing books I read because of other bloggers!
I’ve probably said it a million times, but I’ve read so many books based on the glowing recommendations of other bloggers. Your reviews have led me to pick up so many books I may not have considered or heard of otherwise. Thank you all for writing so passionately and convincingly about the books you love! Your reviews have brought so many wonderful books into my life!
I’ve read dozens of books based on blogger reviews, but a lot of the time I can’t remember who reviewed them! With some books like The Goldfinch, Life After Life, and Where’d You Go, Bernadette, many many reviews accumulate in my brain and I can’t pinpoint which one tipped the scales. This list isn’t about those books. This list is about the books that were so wonderfully reviewed by one particular blogger that I just HAD to read them. (Actually the first two books were for blogging book clubs/read-alongs, but I needed to fill space.)
10. The Encyclopedia of Early Earth by Isabel Greenberg. Recommended by River City Reading. (Shannon’s review)
What are the best books that you’ve read because of other bloggers?
