Recommended by Book Bloggers… Part 1

I am constantly adding to my TBR.

The reason for this?


As the recipient of a lot of book blogger support, I try to repay in kind by visiting other book blogger’s blogs. Over the years I’ve naturally found some that I favour over others. Invariably, these are bloggers who have reading tastes similar to my own. So when a blogger whom I respect and admire praises a title highly –  it tempts me to add these titles to my own TBR.  It happens so frequently that I added a Goodreads Shelf that I called ‘Blogger recommendations‘.

As of today, this is what this Goodreads Shelf looks like:

If I listed all 152, this post would be way too long for anyone to be interested in reading. As a result, I’ve decided to list TEN of these recommendations that I hope to read sooner rather than later because most of these are backlist titles. Here goes…  Maybe you’ll want to add these to YOUR TBR as well.

As you can see, all of these novels have excellent Goodreads ratings.  Why not add one or two to YOUR TBR today? I’d love to know if any of these titles appeal to you.  Let me know in the comments.

    I’m really quite cranky that I didn’t discover book blogging and book bloggers (and bookstagram!) earlier in my reading life – I took recommendations from friends now and then, but mostly just followed best-seller lists and traditional media reviews to build my TBR for far too long. I can’t imagine doing that now! I feel like I’m getting far better recommendations daily from book bloggers, and they form a wonderful and positive community. ❤️

    I only had two of these on my TBR when I started reading your post, I have more now. I had not heard of some of these books, but after checking them out on Goodreads, I am not sure why I hadn’t.


  6. I fully endorse the David Jackson and the Gillian McAllister – so many other books that are on my radar on your list too!

    Ooops, my tbr just grew again 😀
    I should probably create a separate shelf for these books i find via book blogs as well. Great idea.


  8. Great idea for a post Lynne!

  10. The Mountain in My Shoe and The Day I Lost You are both wonderful books and should definitely be bumped up your tbr!

  11. I’ve had Anything You Do Say on my kindle app for ages, but for some reason never get around to reading it.
