T5W – Books I’ve Read Because of Blogging

Hello everyone!

I haven’t done a top five Wednesday in a few weeks and it’s simply because I’ve had so much other stuff to talk about. However, this week it’s back and it’s a good one!

Since we started blogging we’ve seen some interesting recommendations, but today’s post is on my top five recommendations since I started blogging that I learned about or was encouraged to read through the blogging community.

Now, to the good part!

Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig

Last Seen Leaving was a book that we continued to hear a lot of praise for while at YALLFest last year. Not only does it feature a gay main character but it’s an interesting YA thriller that we just couldn’t get enough of.

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

I learned about Susan Dennard through Sarah J. Maas a few years ago when Truthwitch was coming out. I did not know that she had an earlier series that hadn’t been quite as successful as her Witchlands series has been. Like Last Seen Leaving, I repeatedly heard bloggers and authors talk about how amazing this series was while at YALLFest, and honestly, it’s all I needed to know.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Ah yes, the ever popular Six of Crows. You know, I hadn’t actually heard about this book until Jenn and Caitlynn mentioned it for a book discussion. After they brought it up a read a couple of reviews and decided that I would have to be crazy to pass up reading this book. I was right. I would have had to have been crazy.

Scythe by Neal Schusterman

Scythe was an OwlCrate grab that I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy. When we started seeing so much praise for it we figured we’d give it a chance. Y’all, this book was amazing.

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

I hate myself. I should have read The Star-Touched Queen so much earlier, but it took me a little while to cave to the pressure. Reading this made Chokshi an auto-buy author for me.

That’s it. I know it’s a little short. I’m sorry for that, but hey, if you haven’t read any of these then get started!

What do you think? Do you have any books that might surprise me?

  1. I haven’t read any of these books just yet (although Six of Crows is definitely on my list) but I did pick up Illuminae after Yallfest last year and I’m so glad I finally read it! That and a few other books I heard about at Yallfest last year have made it onto my TBR; I’m so excited to see what books I’ll discover this year!
