Books I Read (and LOVED) Based on Blogger Recommendations

There are tons of bloggers who have given recommendations to me over the years that I have followed. It’s one of my favorite ways to find books. Here’s some of the books I’ve read (and loved) based on recent recommendations.

1. Work Song
Author: Danielle Allen

Recommended by: Nick of The Infinite Limits of Love

Nick had me at office romance + texts.

2. The Story Guy
Author: Mary Ann Rivers

Recommended by: Lenore of Celebrity Readers

Lenore recommended this book to me on Goodreads, and she was right. I loved it!

3. Filthy Forward
Author: Kelsey Cheyenne

Recommended by: Alecia of The Staircase Reader

This book wasn’t even on my radar until Alecia raved about it.

4. Follow
Authors: Tessa Bailey

Recommended by: Kayla of Books and Blends

I like Tessa Bailey’s writing, but her backlist is DEEP. I didn’t even know about this one until Kayla sang it’s praises.

5. Playing for Keeps
Author: Kendall Ryan

Recommended by: Jessica formerly of Reading with Jessica & Nicole of Boundless Bookaholic

I love a good sports romance and both Jessica and Nicole enjoyed this one. Plus, Kendall Ryan books are just fun.

6. Beartown
Author: Frederik Backman

Recommended by: Stephanie of Stephanie’s Book Reviews and Brandie of Running on Words and Wine

Not my normal read, but when Stephanie and Brandie said it’s a must read — it’s a must read.

7. The Sweet Gum Tree
Author: Katherine Allred

Recommended by: Stephanie of Stephanie’s Book Reviews and Brandie of Running on Words and Wine

I NEVER would have read this book without these two saying how good it was. I mean, that cover kind of screams old school.

8. The Guy on the Right
Author: Kate Stewart

Recommended by: Daisy Gal of DG Book Blog

I had read one Kate Stewart book before this and it was kind of meh. Daisy Gal swore this one was amazing, and I trust her judgement, so I gave it a try. It ended up being one of my favorites of last year.

9. Worth the Fall
Author: Claudia Connor

Recommended by: Corina of The Brown Eyed Bookworm

Corina has been lighting up her blog with recommendations lately, and it’s really working out for me. I ended up binging this entire series.

10. Cake
Author: J. Bengtsson

Recommended by: Tanya of Girl Plus Books

I saw this book on Tanya’s blog and was intrigued. She was loving it, so I decided to give it a try. Let’s just say I read the entire 5 book series.

      1. That’s his style though. This is my 4th Backman book, and he has this way of unraveling the stories that I have grown to adore. It always make the emotional hits feel harder.

  1. Yay! I love seeing Beartown and The Sweetgum Tree on here. Brandie was the reason I read both of those books, too. I could probably do a whole post of books I’ve read because of you – like The Fallen Crest series and Lauren Layne books.

    1. That’s because I force books on you to read! Hahaha! I’m glad I got you reading those two authors so I can talk to you about them.

    1. It’s a great community and so much fun to get recommendations. I’m glad you use them, too!

  2. I haven’t read or seen any of those but maybe you will read one of the books from my My TTT. Thanks for your visit.

    1. No, I haven’t. It’s on my list to read after seeing your review for it, though. Thanks so much for writing such a fab review for both!

  3. I have heard that The Sweet Gum Tree is really good before and I agree that cover gives off a really old school type of vibe. I love it when a book rec is perfect. Great list! 🙂

    1. Yes, Backman is a talented writer. It takes a bit to get into Beartown, but the pay off is huge. The Guy on the Right is a fun, sweet romance.

    1. Yay! I think there are some on here you might like. Maybe Work Song and The Guy on the Right.
