I thought this week would be perfect to post a library loot post because it coincides perfectly with BBAW and the question today, which is:
We invite you to share with us a book or genre you tried due to the influence of another blogger. What made you cave in to try something new and what was the experience like?
As is normal with my library loot, quite a few of my choices were influenced by bloggers.
Sorry about the quality–I have no camera at the moment, so I had to take the picture with my phone!
The Adoration of Jenna Fox, by Mary Pearson: I can’t pinpoint one particular blogger that inspired me to get this book. I have seen it everywhere!
Something Wicked this Way Comes, by Ray Bradbury: I have seen this one around a lot too because of the RIP challenge.
The Dracula Dossier, by James Reese: This one was Jen from Devourer of Books. She was kind enough to e-mail me this suggestion after I mentioned in her blog comments that I like reading about Jack the Ripper.
The Long Song, by Andrea Levy: I have been following Jackie’s Booker reviews on Farmlanebooks Book Blog and this one caught my eye.
After the Fall, by Kylie Ladd: I first saw this one on another blog a few months ago and it has popped up now and again since then.
Every.single.book I checked out was mentioned first by another blogger!
What did you checkout from the library this week?
