This week it is all about books you have read through recommendation, my list is made up of books recommended to me by friends and books I have found through the Bookstagram community. Enjoy!
The Selection – Keira Cass
This is not a book I would have chosen to read normally. The cover makes it look way to girly. I kept seeing it on Bookstagram and decided to give it a go. I was really pleasantly surprised and I’ve just ordered the second one!
The Ruby in the Smoke – Philip Pullman
This one was actually a book I owned but had completely forgotten about until a friend borrowed it and recommended it to me. I’m so glad she did! Read the full review here.
The Graces – Laure Eve
I like to think I would have found this book by myself because it is so my type of book. Bookstagram just gave me that little push! Full review here.
A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J. Maas
Again, a book I probably wouldn’t have picked up if it wasn’t for bookstagram. Yay!
Fallen – Lauren Kate
Recommended to me by a friend. Although I got quite bored of the books after the 3rd one, I was really surprised with how much I enjoyed this one. At this time YA Fantasy wasn’t really my bag. (I’m fully converted now though).
Hush Hush – Becca Fitzpatrick
Another recommended to me by the same friend! I’m pretty sure it was this book and the Evermore series that converted me into a fully fledged YA Fantasy addict.
A Darker Shade of Magic – V. E. Schwab
I Loved this book (and AGOS). I probably wouldn’t have found it, or I would have done a lot later, if it wasn’t for every single person on my feed having read it! Yay for Bookstagram!
We Have Always Lived in the Castle – Shirley Jackson
I had read The Lottery by Shirley Jackson and loved it. So when I saw someone post a photo of this I obviously read it immediately. p.s It’s amazing.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs
Another Bookstagram recommendation.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone – Laini Taylor
….. and another!
so basically this list is just one big Bookstagram appreciation post. It’s such a wonderful online community, everyone is so lovely AND look at all the amazing books I have read because of it!!
