Last Tuesday I talked about some books I didn’t love. Let’s get back to being positive, shall we? Here we have the Top Five books recommended to me.
Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton. This one was recommended by Melissa @ Avid Reader’s Musings. We don’t always agree on books, but she hit a home run with this one! My post.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I’d heard all the hype about the movie and I wasn’t terribly interested, but when Emily @ Voyage On recommended it I decided to give it a go. Wow! I loved the first book so much that I immediately bundled the kids off to Target to buy the rest of the trilogy. I then proceeded to read the entire trilogy twice. I’ve since re-read it two more times. I’m obsessed. 😀
Sabriel by Garth Nix. My friend Maricel @ My Closet Catalogue knows how much I love fantasy. She’s recommended a whole slew of books that I haven’t gotten to yet. I stumbled across Sabriel at the library the day after she recommended it to me. I wrote a post while I was still reading it, but as a follow up: Maricel, I really enjoyed Sabriel! I’ve recommended it to other book bloggers, and I’ve got Lirael (the next book in the series) on my Summer TBR.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. My little sister used to work at a book store and got an ARC of this. It got passed around my family. 🙂 The story was completely different from what I expected, but I absolutely loved the book!
One for the Money by Janet Evanovich. My sister-in-law recommended the Stephanie Plum series to me, and I was in the mood for something funny, so I picked up the first book. I’ve since read every single book in the series, and my sister-in-law hasn’t read any (as far as I know)! Apparently, she had just heard of them and thought I’d like them. 😀
