BOOKS I DISCOVERED THROUGH OTHER BOOK LISTS

by 

When it comes to remembering where or how I learned of a book, I’m worthless. However, the idea of spotlighting books to read from Top Ten Tuesday lists is fun. I just don’t have that good of a memory. Saying all of this, I’m going to try and conjure up a list of books that I think I could have discovered from visiting these lists, or maybe even some I discovered from a book friend on social media.

There are so many good books in the world. Some are for me and some simply aren’t. I’m trying more often than not to discover which are my kind of reads because no one has time for books hanging out on my shelf that I’m going to want to throw out or simply never going to read. So, while some of these I may not end up liking, it was fun to learn about them and think maybe they’d be one I could enjoy. Let’s meet them.


BOOKS to READ FROM TOP TEN TUESDAY LISTS

note; like I said in the beginning, I’m not sure where I first learned of these, so this may be all wrong, but still… I think some of these I did find through lists


WOULD YOU RATHER, ALLISON ASHLEY (TOP TEN LIST)

List any of these, this is another “don’t quote me” book add, but I feel like I found this one from a list. I cannot remember for certain, but it sits on my shelf so here’s hoping. Goodreads

SPEAK EASY, SPEAK LOVE, MICHELLE GEORGE (SOCIAL MEDIA)

I think this one was social media, but I may have also seen it on list as well. Cannot remember for certain. Goodreads

A LADY’S GUIDE TO FORTUNE-HUNTING, SOPHIE IRWIN (TOP TEN LIST)

I’m not normally a historical fiction reader, but this one did sound fun so we’ll see if it’s one I’d enjoy. Goodreads

BY ANY OTHER NAME, LAUREN KATE (TOP TEN LIST)

Oh, look! A romantic comedy read… on my list? How surprising! Kidding, obviously, since that’s my favorite but we’ll see if I read this one. Goodreads

DEAR EMMIE BLUE, LIA LOUIS (TOP TEN LIST)

This one sounded interesting to me. I still haven’t read it yet though, so tell me, is it good? Goodreads

THE CUBICLE NEXT DOOR, SIRI MITCHELL (SOCIAL MEDIA)

Pretty dang sure either through email conversation or social media that Rel, one of the early book bloggers, recommended this one. Needless to say, I still haven’t read it, but I still want to. It looks fun, right? Goodreads

BETH O’LEARY (TOP TEN LIST)

The Flatshare did (does?) sound like a lot of fun so I had to add that one. Hope to someday read it still. Goodreads

AS SEEN ON TV, MERIDITH SCHORR (TOP TEN LIST)

This one sounds super fun and like it’d be exactly my type of read! Goodreads

SOPHIE SULLIVAN (TOP TEN and SOCIAL MEDIA)

I think maybe this one is more from social media (like Instagram), but I may have seen Sophie’s books on Top Ten lists, too. Either way, she’s a newer author discovery who I’m hoping writes really good and entertaining books. Goodreads

KASIE WEST (TOP TEN and SOCIAL MEDIA)

99% sure I kept seeing Kasie’s books on lists from Tessa, and also just conversation around social media about the author’s books being cute. I’ve read quite a few of West’s novels since then and do quite enjoy them. Goodreads

    1. I would have liked to tag people but I cannot remember where I found the book/who from. So instead I just had to guess and hope that is where I first found the book. ;) Thanks for visiting, Cindy. As always.

    1. There sure are, Emily! And when it comes to finding new books on these TTT lists, I normally cannot remember which list I first find them on. Thanks for visiting!!

    1. YES! I agree, Susan. Especially if it becomes a new favorite. I also just love the idea of shouting-out the reader/blogger on a list like this. :)

  1. I’m definitely the same way, I can never remember exactly where I found a recommendation! I think it’s probably because I usually see the books I add to my TBR on more than one blog, so it’s hard to remember exactly which one I saw it on first.

    1. I would agree, Jo; I think I see most books that catch my attention on more than one site too. And oftentimes it’s the repeat features that make me go, “wait, do I need to read that one!?” :)
