Hey everyone! I’m writing this a day early because I’m going to see Sarah J Maas in Glasgow tomorrow evening (TOMORROW! I’m so excited!!!!!!!) so I won’t have time to write it tomorrow! I had a really great weekend in Amsterdam with my parents and sister and my mum had a lovely birthday. But anyway, back to the topic at hand, I’m back with another Top Ten Tuesday for you all this week, which is a freebie based on book recommendations, so I’ve chosen Top Ten Books on My TBR That I Added Because Of Blogger Recommendation. It might be kind of hard for me to remember everything I’ve added to my TBR because of blogger recommendation as I add a lot of stuff after each TTT, but I will try! Here are some books that are on my TBR that I added because of blogger recommendation:
- Six of Crows-Leigh Bardugo
I can’t remember exactly who recommended this to me, I think it was more just bloggers in general, because everyone was talking about how great this book was last year and it sounded like something I’d like so I added it to my TBR. I still haven’t read it yet, but I will
2. Scarlet-AC Gaughen
I added this after the TTT where we did fairytale retellings as I was looking for a Robin Hood retelling and this one with a female Will Scarlet was recommended to me. It sounds really great, I just haven’t got around to reading it yet.
3. With Malice-Eileen Cook
I added this to my TBR after it was recommended to me by Brittany from Book Addict’s Guide and I won it in a giveaway back in June. I still haven’t read it yet, but I need to because it sounds really good!
4. Caraval-Stephanie Gerber
I added this to my TBR after it seemed like every single book blogger was talking about it on Twitter (and I saw how pretty the proof was) plus it sounded so amazing. I got approved for it on Netgalley and will hopefully start reading it soon!
5. Splintered-AG Howard
I added this one after the retelling week as well because it just sounded so wonderfully weird! I love the idea of an Alice in Wonderland retelling and after I saw a lot of bloggers recommending it, I figured why not add it to my TBR? I’ve actually bought it as well, just haven’t read it yet.
6. Scarlet-Marissa Meyer
I added this after I read Cinder because everyone and I mean everyone has been recommending The Lunar Chronicles to me. I didn’t love Cinder, but a blogger told me that Scarlet was better, so I’ve got it and hopefully when I read it, I’ll enjoy it more.
7. Made You Up-Francesca Zappia
This was all over the blogosphere last year when it was released and it sounded really good so I added it to my TBR to then promptly forget about it! I definitely want to read it at some point soon because a lot of bloggers seemed to think it was good and the cover is so pretty!
8. Every Last Word-Tamara Ireland Stone
This was very talked about when it came out and there were a lot of bloggers recommending it so I added it to my TBR and I do plan to read it even if I haven’t yet!
9. Poison Study-Maria V Snyder
I remember seeing this on a lot of TTT lists, it sounded really awesome, just the kind of fantasy I would enjoy reading! I still haven’t got to it yet but hopefully I will at some point.
10. Grave Mercy-Robin LaFevers
This sounds a lot like Throne of Glass and I saw it on a lot of “Read this if you like Throne of Glass lists” so I immediately added it to my TBR. Of course it’s been months and I still haven’t read it yet but I will!
That’s all for this week! What recommendation based topic did you choose? Have you read any of the books on my list? Did you like them? Let me know in the comments! Next week’s topic is Ten Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car after but since I did that topic a while ago, I’m going to do Characters I’d Like As Family Members, as it’s kind of along the same lines as the original topic and seems like a lot of fun. That’s next week but in the meantime, I will have my review of Empire of Storms and a recap of tomorrow’s Sarah J Maas event up later this week, so stay tuned for those!
