You all make me read some awesome books. Books I never would have read otherwise. In no particular order, I give you The Top Ten Books I’m So Happy Were Recommended To Me (share yours in the comments!):
My Name Is Memory by Ann Brashares
Recommended by: Jennifer at Mrs Q: Book Addict
I didn’t love the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books so I probably would have passed this one by if Jennifer hadn’t recommended it.
Genesis by Bernard Beckett
Recommended by: Beth Fish Reads
Spent a wonderful afternoon with this one.
Hate List by Jennifer Brown
Recommended by: Michelle at Galleysmith
I shy away from books about school shootings but I couldn’t resist when Michelle recommended to me.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Recommended by: Random Teenager
Again, a wonderful afternoon spent with this one.
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks bu E. Lockhart
Recommended by: Emily at Books, the Universe & Everything
Loved this one. Thanks, Emily.
Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready
Recommended by: Jen at Makeshift Bookmark
Yeah. This book made the blog two days in a row. It’s that awesome.
America, America by Ethan Canin
Recommended by: Jen at Devourer of Books
Specifically, the audiobook. The narrator = amazing.
Blankets by Craig Thompson
Recommended by: Nymeth at Things Mean A Lot
My first graphic novel. Never would have read it if not for Nymeth’s gushing.
The End of the Affair by Graham Greene
Recommended by: My husband
This book and I had a wonderful little affair.
Leaving this one open for all the future possibilities. You all recommend some amazing books.
Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme hosted by the lovely ladies of The Broke and the Bookish.
You do such a good job of keeping track of who recommends books! I don’t always remember exactly who recommended it but notice when I see a few good reviews from people I trust.
I had to do a little digging for the recommenders. Generally, I try to say who forced a book upon me in the review. 🙂
wow, you recalled you recommended the book, i could not for the bloggers. but i’m writing them down now.
Shade caught my eye.
Read SHADE immediately. 🙂
Genesis looks nice!
Here’s my answer: Reading Romances
I have not read any of these books, and now I am thinking, where the heck have I been? All of these sound wonderful, and I am adding a few to my wish list. Thanks for sharing them!
Happy to add to your own TBR 🙂
I’m like Colleen…I can’t remember who gives me my ideas. I totally DO remember when Candace reviewed Genesis. I think I tried to track it down on audio and had no luck. I may have to get back on the library website again and see.
Not to get melodramatic in the comments section, but “Perks” basically got me through my freshman year of high school. I love it with the fire of a thousand suns. Also love “Frankie Landau” and “Blankets.” Nice picks, pal!
That’s so great that you had a book like that. 🙂
Dude, that narrator so did = awesome. I’m still a little in love with him.
I tried to find more books by him but they’re all political. 😦
I have Blankets on my shelf from the library. It’s the second time I’ve checked it out, so I really need to get to it. Your blog is lovely, by the way.

Ooh, I hope you get to it soon. It will only take you a few hours. And it is SO GOOD.
