Recommend a book from your favourite genre

Well its going to have to be Fantasy right? I’m going to go with an early 2020 release I was lucky enough to read a few months ago and loved! Below by Alexandria Warwick, a beautifully written book that delves into inuit folklore and has a strong and admirable female character.

Recommend a short book

I’m going to go with Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce. Book one in her immortals quartet, all of the books are quick and easy read full of wondrous magic, a snarky wizard and a stubborn and talented mage in training.

Recommend a book-to-screen adaptation

I’m not really a big fan of book-to-screen adaptations but The Martian by Andy Weir is by far one of the best I’ve seen. They managed to capture the setting of the book, and the voice of the character to perfection and I loved the film just as much as the book.

Recommend a book out of your comfort zone

Rumour has it by Jill Mansell is one of the few romance books that I actually enjoy ( in fact I like all of Jills books). Basically a rom-com in book format, a truly easy read that will have you in utter hysterics by the end.

Recommend a book series

Just one? This is going to be hard! I’m going to go with Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton. This series blew me away when I first read it, and I have picked it up multiple times since. Amami and Jin are amazing characters and my OTP.

Recommend a standalone

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix. E. Harrow blew me away when I read it earlier this year. One of the most beautifully written books I have ever read and with prose to die for. A unique and inventive read that had me flying through the pages in record time.

Recommend a book you dont talk about enough

Hmmm. Maybe Traitor’s Blade by Sebastien De Castell. I feel his spellslinger series gets all the love, but I will always be a greatcoat. Amazing written characters and a totally fresh and unique plot. Also Falcio, Kest and Brasti are my boys and I would die for them.

Recommend your ‘staple’ book

Ok so I feel like I throw Uprooted by Naomi Novik at the most people so let’s go with that. I love this book so much, and just wish the author would write a sequel so I could follow on with Agnieska’s and the Dragons story.

Recommend the book(s) that got you into reading

J.K. Rowling, Phillip Pullman, Roald Dahl, Jacqueline Wilson… ring any bells. Every single one of these wrote books that helped cement my love for reading and I will be forever grateful for that.

Recommend 3+ bloggers who recommend great books

Ok so Definitely Susan over at Novel Lives. We are both the best/worst for each others TBR, but I’m pretty sure I’ve added every book she’s featured in a First Line Friday or WWW Wednesday to my TBR.

Mary over at BookCraic spotlights some awesome sounding Middlegrade and YA novels and is another blogger who makes my TBR grow with almost every post.

Finally Nen & Jen over at Nen&Jen. They post some amazing bookish content and because they run the blog together, and have slightly different tastes, I get some amazing recommendations every time I click on a post!

  2. I was about to retweet this except you tagged me so than when I tag you back… well people might think we are paying each other off or something.

    And well you know today’s post hopefully will help your TBR… LOL… or be a dream killer… I don’t know which is worst.

    Thank you for the tag and the compliment! 🙂 LOVE YOU! And your reviews rock, too. I had a whole list of books that I had to apologize for still being on my TBR because you put them there since I started blogging (and then like most newbies got caught up in ARCs and never came back)… BUT I have a goal this year….. lol

    • Haha I love that. We could be like the mob but for bloggers 😂.

      You’re very welcome! Your reviews never fail to give me a giggle or two and generally all end with me adding the book to my TBR! Love that it’s not a one way street.

      • Oh lord hell the reviewing world the day we end up running a mafia syndicate!

        And no it is definitely not a two way street. I’m just quieter than normal. For instance. I just figured out I am only being notified of when someone comments on my posts but not when someone comments when I comment on their post -_-

        So that’s two weeks of comments people think I’ve ignored. 🙄
