Books I Love That I Discovered Thanks To Book Blogging

There are many things to love about book blogging. Many things my friends… the list goes on and on and oN and ONNNNNNNNNNN!

But one of the most amazing things, the thing that makes the tippity – toppity of every readers’ and bloggers’ list is …. wait for it


I know. I know.


While we all love gathering around to talk about bookish things, whether we’re talking about things we love about, or in, books or if we cry together about the struggles of loving books to the point that it consumes every aspect of our lives, what really gets us foaming at the mouth is books. New books. Books we’ve never heard about. Any book tbh.

If someone screams about how amazing a book is, it will echo throughout the bookish world. All readers will pause, abandoning whatever they were doing, snapping their necks round to see. To ADD TO CART or ADD TO “TO BUY” LISTS.

And if we see someone showing off a beautiful cover…. We stare. We wants it. We must have it.

And so today, on this lovely Tuesday, I bring before your sight orbs, a list of books that are now (and maybe forever) a part of my “Favourite Books” list. And I discovered these beautiful books through the amazing book blogging community. Thank you for screaming at me to read these books. You’re all angels!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by the lovely Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, in which readers and bloggers come together to squeal, cry and ooo ‘n’ aaa at books.

Today’s prompt is “Books I Read Because Someone Recommended Them to Me.”

Note: Clicking on the book covers will take you to their respective Goodreads pages, so you guys can check them out and love them too!!

Ok so, putting Daughter of Smoke and Bone on this list might be cheating, since I’m still reading it. But GUYS! I’m almost finished and I love it so much..

Can’t believe it came out in 2011 and I’m only just reading it now…

So… I’m putting it on this list, because it’s already my favourite and I bet the endings going to be great. Strange the Dreamer’s ending killed me and I bet this one will too.

What books did you discover thanks to book blogging (either by reading the blogs or doing the blogging)?? Are any of them your all time favourites??? Are you enjoying your current reads?? Do you think what you’re reading now will be a favourite???

You can find me here too!

  1. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is a great book and I’m contemplating reading it again, because I remember that I absolutely loved the feeling that it gave me. On the other hand Dreams of Gods and Monsters will be forever banished on my tbr because it has more than 800 pages and that’s scary. I don’t know if I will ever finish that series.
    Actually, I also had The Raven Boys and ACOTAR on my list for this post but I cannot say if I’m actually happy about that. I’m still struggling through Acotar and might just give up on the Raven Boys because I have such trouble reading it. Although I really wanted to like them!

    1. I really enjoyed Daughter of Smoke and Bone!!! I can’t wait to read the next 2 books! I get you… Dreams of Gods and Monsters is a chonky boi… and for some reason I feel like it will make me cry?? (and not from dropping it on my feet)
      I totally get where you’re coming from! There are a lot of books that I’ve started reading because people I know loved them and I just …. IT’S NOT HAPPENING FOR ME FOLKS!! And that is super ok! Everyone has different reading tastes!! So, we won’t all love the same books! You don’t have to force yourself through a book you’re not enjoying!! ❀

  2. This list is EVERYTHING. So is your humor and your post layout. AESTHETIC.

    I am definitely going to check some of these books out! A lot of them are still hanging out on my TBR and I appreciate your review links. That always helps kick my butt in gear when my favorite bloggers write reviews for books on my TBR. πŸ˜€
