One of the side effects of creating a blog and getting in contact with lots of people is that you get to know a LOT of books you normally wouldn’t be drawn to or even have heard of! Consequently your to-read pile gets enormous, but well. Below are some of the books I only heard about because of other bloggers and that I probably wouldn’t have read otherwise!
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, by Jenny Han
I don’t remember who had recommended this book, but I heard it was all cute and funny and very good representation… I picked it up last summer in the spirit of reading different things from my comfort zone, and I really liked it! It’s a really cute book and I’ll read the continuation somewhen soon!
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, by Taylor Jenkins Reid
This one was recommended by several book bloggers, and the cover would have kept me far away from it. My curiosity got the best of me and I succumbed to the hype. I assumed it was a romance, but it’s so much more than that. I got it as an Audible, and it was so much fun to listen to the awesome narration and the very captivating story!
The Female of The Species, by Mindy McGinnis
This book ended up being one of my favorites from last year! Such a great, dark YA! Also don’t remember who recommended (ugh).
History is All You Left Me, by Adam Silvera
They Both Die At The End, by Adam Silvera
Both these books were suggested by my friend Noriko, who loved the books so much I simply had to read them! She has great taste in books, and was spot-on: I loved these YAs, both broke my heart so much!
A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, by Mackenzi Lee
This was also recommended by several bloggers, and it was such a unique, fun story with romance, adventure and great representation! I ended up giving 3 stars because the Audiobook was a bit boring for my taste, but it’s a great book nonetheless!
Heartstone, by Elle Katharine White
This also turned into a favorite last year, and I would never even have heard of it if not for this review from Danielle! 5 stars, amazing book, I can’t even believe it’s a debut.
Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell
I had to add Fangirl to my list after this review from Katie!
Leia: Princess of Alderaan, by Claudia Gray
I was not really going to pick this one up because a lot of books based on movies tend to be quite bad, and there’s SO MUCH stuff written on the Star Wars expanded Universe that it’s just impossible to choose from. But then I read this review from Shawn and decided to give it a chance! I loved the book and already got Bloodline from the same author, which I’m so excited to read!!
