Top 5 Wednesday: Books You’ve Read Because of Booktube/Blogging
I really liked this week’s topic as it was what pushed me even more to get into blogging. I already loved books and read them whenever I was able to, but once I started watching booktube my love for books grew even more. It also introduced me to so many other books I hadn’t heard about or would have even thought of picking up before. I’m so glad I found those book vids because it’s where my love for blogging started and how I came to discover such a great book community.
There’s been a great number of books I’ve read because of suggestions I saw on videos and several through book blogs, but I know this is only the Top 5 so I will try my best to narrow it down to only those. If you like this topic and would like to check out this awesome group, you can check them out here and see the new topics already up for October.
The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett was one book I saw a lot of everywhere and had quickly caught my attention with the title, then the synopsis for it. When I started reading it I found that it wasn’t a genre I usually get into, but it had a good amount of mystery and found it to be one of the first contemporary’s I’ve really liked in a long time.
The Edge of Everything was another one of those reads I had been hearing a lot about through different social media sites. When I heard it included fantasy and the paranormal, I knew I had to give it a try and it was a book that I added it to my book shelves once I read the eARC. I loved everything about it.
It Started with Goodbye had also been talked about a lot, but I hadn’t really been interested in. It wasn’t until I read more of the synopsis and saw several reviews for it on Goodreads, that I decided to pick it up. Good thing I did because I really liked it.
Caraval was everywhere. I saw it in so many places, with so many good reviews that I first I was put off by it. Sometimes books that hyped up can disappoint, but this one was as good as everyone said it was. I really loved this world and the appeal of the Carnival that was part of this book. I’m really looking forward to the second book in the series.
The Disappearances is another one that I saw on Twitter and book blogs. I was already taken in by that cover and the name, I didn’t even have to read the synopsis because I knew I was reading it. It ended up being one of my faves of this year.
Let me know down below some of your fave books you’ve found through other book bloggers/vloggers suggestions. I’d love to hear about them!
