-| Books I’ve Read Because of the Book Community |-

So, it won’t come as a surprise to you all that my preferred genre is Crime Thrillers. Before I started my blog that was only genre that I really read, however since becoming heavily involved within the book community my eyes have been opened to the wide variety of genres, and who knew you didn’t have to be a teenager to enjoy YA? I didn’t this time last year.
If you have been following the blog for a long time you may have noticed that Fantasy, Sci-Fi & YA books have been creeping into my reviews. So I wanted to make a post to show how much of my reading has been influenced by you guys!

      1. Yes, there are quite a few that have very similar taste and I trust their rating and comments. It took awhile to get there. I read several different genres, so there are lots of options for me.

    1. I would absolutely recommend the audiobook for the seven husbands of Evelyn Hugo if you can, I became so absorbed that I cried like a baby at the end!
      I’m not sure if Daisy Jones and the Six will be my cup of tea, are you reading it physically?

      1. Yes, I bought the hardcover when Book Depository had it on sale. But author Greer Macallister listened to the audio book and raved about it. I can understand why, because it is mostly people speaking. But… I’m not really into audiobooks to be truthful. I can’t really find time to listen to them. I’ve only listened to three, and that was only when I had surgery on my eyelids and couldn’t read.

  1. I totally agree with you. I get soooo many good recs from other bloggers. Which is nice because the people in my life either don’t read or do read and can’t say anything more than, “OMG, I loved it!” And I’m not knocking that but WHY WAS IT SO AMAZING? LOL

  2. I guess this is so true for most of us… we all influence each other to try out books outside our comfort zones and discover our love for them !!!!
    I totally read the Nevernight chronicles due to the community too 😊😊😊

      1. I know right … it’s definitely the case with me too… just engaging with other bloggers makes us want to try out everything πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
