What book or genre have I tried due to the influence of another blogger? What made me cave in to try something new and what was the experience like?
I’m sure there are a bunch of books that I would never have heard of it weren’t for being involved in the blogging community, like Last Night in Montreal and The Ace of Spades, two books that are very different from each other but that I truly enjoyed. I think blogging has just made me more aware of the variety that’s out there, of new releases, of oldies but goodies that I’ve missed along the way. One of those classics that I never would have heard of had it not been for other bloggers was The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. To be honest, I’m not sure how I could never have run across it before, but when I finally read it last year I loved it.
What’s a book or genre you’ve tried because another blogger introduced you to it? Join in the discussion at BBAW’s site.
I totally agree. Blogging has made me more aware of certain books that are out or have been out for awhile! I love blogs that do a variety of both!
I want to read Last Night in Montreal since reading another of Emily’s books; The Singer’s Gun.
Book Blogging has been like a window into another universe…one in which books and the love of books predominate. I love that this blogosphere exists and that we can explore this universe.
Here’s my post:
I love how you put that. It is a different world, one I didn’t realize existed until I joined in.
The Moonstone is an excellent book, huh? Glad to see an oldie but goodie on someone’s lists–been seeing lots of Twilight and Hunger Games today. 😉
Didn’t enjoy Twilight and can’t bring myself to read the Hunger Games.
Just about everything I read these days is because of a bloggers review.
Oh, I loved The Moonstone! I’m glad you found and enjoyed it, too. Have you also read Wilkie Collins’ Woman in White? I hear that’s another great read.
Woman in White is on my shelf. One of these days I’ll get around to it.
