Top Ten Books I Read Because Of Another Blogger

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted @The Broke and the Bookish. Each week you create a top ten list based on a theme of their selection.

Top Ten Books I Read Because Of Another Blogger

01. Anna & the French Kiss

I never would have picked Anna up if not for all the marvelous reviews out there for it!

02. Personal Demons

This book has a cover that just looks too much like an adult romance that I did not even realize it was YA. I did see some buzz for it on several blogs I follow, however, and ended up giving it a chance.

03. Wildefire

I am completely and absolutely in love with this book. I saw so many reviews that said that and I did not believe it. But then I kept seeing it….I read it & fell…hard!

04. Delirium

I saw lots of mixed reviews for this, but it was actually a post during YA Bachelor month that sold me on reading this book.

05. Divergent

The summary & title for this book did not wow me, but the early reviews I saw for it were all so good. I had to check it out!

06. Forbidden

I would have NEVER read this book because of what it was about. Then I began reading advance reviews of it….they were all good, which completely confused me. I knew I had to read this to understand.

07. Nightshade

I debated about reading this for ages, and it wasn’t until I began reading various reviews for it that I actually broke down and read it.

08. Hate List

I do not remember where it was, but I read a review for this book that blew me away! The next day I went to the library and got this to read. I have since bought my own copy because I loved it so much.

09. Shade

This is another book that had an adult romance-y cover. The reviews for it are all so good though that I had to check it out. And if I hadn’t already read it, the YA Crush Tourney would have convinced me to!

10. Perfect Chemistry

Ahh…Fuentes! I would not have fallen head over heels if it had not been for one good review I read of this amazing book.
