October 11: All About Books You Read Because of Recommendation
Ten Books I’ve Read Because Of Another Blogger (Or Book Person) or Ten Books I Read On Recommendation From People Outside Of This Community or you could talk about recommendations of books you read from other sources — a magazine, a podcast, a “because you read this” algorithm.
This is a good list and I finished it like that *snap fingers* when I first saw the topic. It is so easy to talk about who have influenced me to get these books, no matter if I have not read them yet or not. I am excited to talk about them.
1. The Moon Dwellers by David Estes
It was after I finished with The Hunger Games and wanted more. I found out via an article that basically gave you a list of books that are most similar to The Hunger Games and saw that the book was free on Amazon Kindle so I grabbed it and read it. Fell in love and I read the rest of the series. It is so different and the idea behind this series is awesome. I am planning on doing a review on the series.
2. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Like I said in my review for Six of Crows, thanks to Jesse, I fell in love with it. I have not read Crooked Kingdom but SOON, I promise!
3. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Same thing with Six of Crows. Thanks to Jesse. I love how different this is and how it was made. I have already posted the review on this book.
4. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
I did not know anything about these series growing up. I was living under a rock. It wasn’t until college and my ex-roommate at the time was in love with the series and told me about it. She made me watch a movie (I forget which one was it) and fell in love with the world that J.K. built. It was not until this past summer, my aunt got upset at the fact that I still did not have the books and order me the set. She basically ordered me to read the series.
5. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
I was watching Zoe from YouTube and it was on Favorite Book Covers. She was showing off the cover, front and back and it somehow conceived me to get the book and read it. I fell in love with this book. I am excited to read more of Morgan’s books.
6. Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
I honestly do not remember where I first heard about this book but afterward, it was everywhere and not everywhere. People doesn’t really talk about this book but from what I have heard, it was written so beautifully and so heartwrenching.
7. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I was watching YouTube and reading book blogs and they all were raving about this book and they were screaming for the sequel. It is like a pebble in a pond and it causes waves. It worked because she recently released A Torch Against the Night. It also got us a movie deal and two more books coming out in 2018 and 2019.
8. Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova
I found out about this book via #DiverseAThon that Monica from shemustbemonica, Whitney from WhittyNovels, Christina from Christina Marie, and Joce from squibblesreads put together. The story sounds interesting and I am planning to read this maybe next month.
9. Cinder by Marissa Meyers
It is a similar story to An Ember in the Ashes. It was everywhere and people were clambering about this series. They loved how Marissa somehow blend the fairytales and other elements perfectly and it made for a fun read.
10. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
It is a similar story to Harry Potter but it is different at the same time. I went to my boyfriend’s house for the weekend since he lived an hour and a half away and my roommates at the time were planning on watching the first movie and told me about it when I got back home. It got me interested and went to the Barnes & Noble store on campus and bought the first book – I fell in love and went back for the rest of the series and finished it like that. I finished Breaking Dawn in two sittings and it was my biggest book that I ever read thus far.
