Top Ten Tuesday + Friend’s Recomendations
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday was a “freebie.” This turned out to be a really nice thing this week, because we got to play with any topic we wanted. It’s always fun to do our own thing with Top Ten Tuesday though, of course, the topics the ladies come up with are always brilliant book epicness. This week, I didn’t go with anything inventive and instead decided to showcase books that blogging friends have been insisting (in the nicest possible way) I read for a long time. Partially because that way there are books on this list not normally featured here (more so than some week’s that tend to “repeat” authors or books) and secondly because I really am curious about them. Also thrown in are a couple I’ve been telling myself to read time and again. But as we all know, those TBR’s get the best of us.
— Recommendations from Friends —
1.) A Sparrow in Terezin, by Kristy Cambron
This book is really more a pick I want to read than it is a recommendation. Though it has been making the book blogging rounds and is getting nothing but praise.
2.) Etiquette and Espionage, by Gail Carriger
Again, this is another non-recommendation, however I believe I remember Jenny B. Jones talking about it.
3.) Pawn, by Aimee Carter
One of my “oldie” blog followers recommended this to me on Goodreads. Naturally, I’m intrigued.
4.) Catching Fire, by Suzanne Collins
“Everyone” is in shock that I’m watching the movies before reading the books – I think most readers thought this the best book of the three and well, someday I’ll read the final two books.
I could say the same about Kasie’s books as I did above about Jennifer’s. They sound darling. Basically any and all of her novels are high on my must read list.
