I’ve been working all day (during the Easter holiday…) and so I don’t have much time to do this super detailed. However, I am excited for today’s topic: books I bought because – and then I’ll choose a category and write the first three or something like that. So it should be fun!
Books I bought because my friends recommended them:
- One of us is lying by Karren McManus – I haven’t read this one, but some of my best friends have and said it’s one of their absolute favorites, so I got it for myself. It’s mystery and YA, so that should be an interesting match!
- Girl Online by Zoella – wow, that was some long time ago! My best friend brought this to our vacation in Sotogrande (Spain) and tragically, I broke my toe surfing on the second day. I had to spend most of the days at home and then read this book and it was great! I mean I wouldn’t read it now, but it sure was great 5 years ago!
- After Iris by Natasha Farrant – my bestie also recommended this, she hadn’t read the whole book (she’s not the biggest reader), and so she gave it to me after that and I really ended up enjoying it!
Books I bought because of other bloggers
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – if it hadn’t been for my blog, I never would have read one of my absolute favorite books. This community truly is super helpful when it comes to recommendations and I can always trust their judgement!
- The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer – the same counts here! One of my absolute favorite fantasy series and I never would have read it if I hadn’t found it through my blog!
- The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater – one of the few disappointing series I read because of other bloggers. I did love the characters and the general story line was truly amazing, but it was extremely slow-paced and I’m just not made for that…
Books I bought because of the author
- Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo – after reading SoC, I really had to discover more of her books and was super happy to find one in the same universe with some overlapping characters!
- Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo – a little disappointment. I mean the writing was on point as always, and maybe I was just in the wrong mood at that time, but I didn’t finish reading it…
- Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare – obviously, I’m always curious when the Shadowhunter world is involved, but only because Cassie Clare is such a fantastic writer. This series could have just as easily been a flop because there never is endless potential… But she delivered!
That’s it for today, what would have been your choices, feel free to comment! I hope you’re all having a great week, a break from school or just quarantined anyways! Stay safe and happy reading!
