I really (really) do like this week’s question (topic) which is asking us to share the books we recommend to others. Much as I like it, it doesn’t work for me. You see I don’t know people to recommend books to, plus I’d probably be a bit self conscious doing so, wondering, will they like it!? I even get this way when someone comments on a review suggesting it [the book featured or reviewed] sounds like something they’d like. I’m always like… but what if they don’t!? It’s silly I know, but it’s a small glimpse into my mind. Anyway, sticking with recommendations, I thought I’d look up a few authors I love on Amazon and see what books Amazon recommends.📚TEN RECOMMENDED BOOKS AMAZON SAYS I’D LIKE📚 #TOPTENLIST #TOPTEN #BOOKLIST #BOOKS #READER #READING #MELISSATAGG #RACHELMCMILLAN #BOOKSTOREAD #HISTORICAL #MYSTERY #ROMANCEREADS Click To Tweet
Sometimes this retail giant is woefully off and other times I think perhaps they are closer to accurate recommendations. Oddly what I am finding is Amazon seems to know have a “products related to this” section on the item page. Used to be it’d “recommend” books that were similar. Is this the same thing? Or was recommending books somehow triggering the Internet? If it was, there’s another reason to add to my reasons-why-I-cannot-get-back-into-reading. *wink* Let’s jump in and see what we find!
BOOKS AMAZON RECOMMENDS
SHE’S ALL THAT, KRISTIN BILLERBECK because of MEMORY LANE
Becky Wade always writes a compelling story so thinking that Kristin’s novels too could be good reads makes me happy; reason being is I’ve often wanted to read one of her novels. ‘She’ Goodreads • ‘Memory’ Goodreads
FROM THE ASHES, SABRINA FLYNN because of THE BACHELOR GIRL’S GUIDE TO MURDER
Rachel’s trio of historical novels is such a fun time. I thoroughly enjoyed them, so if there’s more out there that are similar, I’d be interested to try them. Have you read anything by Sabrina? I’m always hesitant to include books by authors I know nothing about. ‘Ashes’ Goodreads • ‘Bachelor’ Goodreads
CHRISTMAS BAGGAGE, DEBORAH M. HATHAWAY because of MEMORY LANE
These Christmas books by a variety of authors were super popular during the Christmas season. Though they have the Christmas Escapes tagline connecting them, I don’t think they are required reading as a series. Knowing this is a rec (if Amazon can be trusted!) for a novel by Becky Wade makes me happy because these books did look fun. ‘Christmas’ Goodreads • ‘Memory’ Goodreads
START WITH ME, KARA ISAAC because of FROM THE START
BETTING ON THE BOY NEXT DOOR, MELANIE JACOBSON because of THE UPSIDE OF FALLING
While imperfect, The Upside of Falling was (at the time) one of my favorite reads. It was sweet and I’m always impressed when I find a book that lives up to being sweet in today’s climate. I also hear good things about Melanie’s books, so are they worth the read? ‘Boy’ Goodreads • ‘Upside’ Goodreads
A LOVE SO REAL, KIMBERLY RAE JORDAN because of FROM THE START
Once upon a time when I’d go on any kind of fiction search, Kimberley’s books would show up frequently. This time the comparison is to a Melissa Tagg novel, an author I always enjoy. ‘Love’ Goodreads • ‘Start’ Goodreads
REBEL WITH A DONUT, CHRISSY Q MARTIN because of LUCKY IN LOVE
THINGS WE NEVER GOT OVER, LUCY SCORE because of THE SELECTION (+ THE UPSIDE OF FALLING)
This one recommending itself with The Selection was super odd to me. Though it did also pop up when looking at The Upside of Falling, so… either way, is this one good? ‘Things’ Goodreads • ‘Selection’ Goodreads
WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE, EMILY WIBBERLEY because of THE UPSIDE OF FALLING
THE NEXT WORST THING, SARA JANE WOODLEY because of FROM THE START
Off to you we turn things. Have you read any of these? What books do you recommend the most? Do you recommend? How do you go about recommending? Where do you look for recommendations? Let’s meet in the comments.
