Wednesday—Unexpected Treasure


We invite you to share with us a book or genre you tried due to the influence of another blogger. What made you cave in to try something new and what was the experience like?

Probably at very least half the books I have on my to-read list I've seen on other book blogs.  Book bloggers have introduced me to young adult, paranormal, and fantasy.  Without them I probably would never have read The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, The Study series by Maria Snyder, Graceling, Fire, Thirteen Reasons Why and many more.  I would never had thought to pick up Scott Westerfeld, Carrie Ryan, Michelle Moran, Diana Peterfreund, or Patricia Briggs.

I love my fellow book bloggers.  They've introduced me to a world of books that I didn't realize was out there (I was stuck in a major reading rut when I discovered book blogs).  My list of books I want to read has grown to the point I don't think I will ever catch up.  I add at least a few every week.  I'm thankful for that because I realize I will always have a great book to look forward to!


  1. Same for me as well. I would have missed some great books and not discovered the wonderful authors if I did not visit book blogs.

  2. i'm exactly the same - I am reading more than ever now but not catching up!

  3. It's always interesting to look back and see what has changed since you started blogging - for me I read a lot more fantasy, including many of the books you mentioned.


I love comments!
