Top Ten Books I Read Because Someone Recommended Them to Me

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and The Artsy Reader Girl. This one is gonna be hard. A lot of what I read now I discover early on Goodreads, but I'll dig around.

1. Wilder Girls by Rory Power - No specific person recommended this, but a ton of people talked about it on Twitter around when it released, making me want to read it ASAP!

2. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab - Sadly, this wasn't a huge hit with me, but a lot of people online loved it!

3. Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust - Another one that many people on Twitter were fans of!

4. The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden - I *technically* read this for a research essay for class, but I chose it partially because I'd heard how amazing it was

5. The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller - This was highly recommended around when it released. I picked it up on a whim with leftover Xmas money and loved it!

6. The Cruel Prince by Holly Black - I think everyone knows how highly recommended this book is

7. The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics by Olivia Waite - I likely would have read it anyway, but authors such as Cat Sebastian highly recommended this f/f historical romance!

8. You're Welcome Universe by Whitney Gardner - *Technically* I read this on recommendation of a book club, but I'm running out of options, so I'm gonna count it

9. The Duff by Kody Keplinger - I read this around when the movie came out since it got renewed attention

10. Who I Was With Her by Nita Tyndall - Again, I totally would have read this anyways, but the heaping praise surely helped!


  1. Great list. I loved The Cruel Prince. I find a lot of books from other bloggers and then I follow the author if I like them.

  2. Who I Was With Her sounds interesting!

    My post.

  3. WILDER GIRLS is an interesting book. I didn't absolutely love it, but it definitely kept me turning pages!

    Happy TTT!
