This weeks topic really speaks to me because I’ve come a long way when it comes to taking book recommendations from people. I used to be super picky about what I read (5 years ago I’d never touch a YA book, now it’s about all I read). I used to only read from certain genre’s (mystery and fiction) and would never venture outside my comfort zone. Now I’m a sponge. I take everything into consideration and from almost anyone, customers in the store to Twitter peeps online and everyone in-between. Here are ten books I’ve recently read and loved.
11/22/63 Stephen King: A very long book but one of the best I’ve ever read, I love the historical aspect too!
A Study in Charlotte Brittany Cavallaro: A modern-day Sherlock story, totally loved it.
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld: This was actually my first Westerfeld title and I’m completely hooked!
The Elegance of the Hedgehog Muriel Barbery: My very first audio book ever. Great performance and the story was suprising!
Cinder Marissa Meyer: I wouldn’t have read this without ALL the recommendations. I thought robots, not for me…
Ready Player One Ernest Cline: I was on the fence with this book for a while, recommendations pushed me to pick it up.
She’s Come Undone Wally Lamb: I love this book and the author so much. One of the books that really started me collecting.
Beautiful Lies Lisa Unger: One of my favorite used bookstore owners forced me to buy this, I was not disappointed!
I’ll Give You the Sun Jandy Nelson: Customer recommended, I could totally hang out with these characters!
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet Jamie Ford: History, romance and WWII need I say more?
