It’s Day 3 of Book Blogger Appreciation Week hosted by the Estella Society, and today, it’s all about the books I’ve read because of my fellow bloggers.
Naomi is so bad for my TBR pile. She reads all the books I want to read, and all the books I didn’t know I wanted to read, too. Thanks to her, I know a little more about Canadian literature. The last books I read because of her were Our Endless Numbered Days and This Godforsaken Place.
Caroline has not one, but two annual events that are right up my alley. She is a co-host of German Literature Month and also does a Literature and War Readalong. I’ve read a whole bunch of books because of her (and have a whole bunch more lined up), but the last two were Emil and the Detectives and Novel Without a Name.
FictionFan’s reviews are always fun. I can totally relate to her soft spot for Mr. Darcy. She reads a wide variety of books, and maybe one day I have all the time I need to read all the interesting books she recommends. The last book I read because of her was Resurrection Science.
Cathy writes beautiful reviews, and I’ve added a number of books to my TBR because of her. We share a certain nostalgia for our childhood books. Last year, she introduced the Reading Ireland event, and I’m happy that the event is back next month. I read The Hand That First Held Mine because of her, and then I went out and purchased two more of O’Farrell’s books.
The Classic Club’s Spins must be one of the best events out there for a classics lover. I’ve read a whole bunch of books because of the Spins, and it’s always fun to connect with others to see which classic they are reading. I’m currently reading Little Women from my Classics Club list.
Now, ask me about the books I want to read because of my fellow bloggers. No, you better not, because the list would be REALLY long. But I felt that a few honorable mentions would be in order. So here goes:
Madame de ___ because of Jacqui.
Verboten, Verfemt, Vertrieben because of Marina Sofia.
Manja because of Jane.
Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s crime novels because of German Literature Month.
My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry because of Eva.
The Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine because of Lizzie.
The Romanov Sisters because of Shannon.
Ravensbrück because of Brona.
