Today we are encouraged to blog about a book we've read only because we discovered it on another book blog. Preferably, this will be a book we loved! We can also write a bit about the blog we discovered it on!
When I first read this blogging topic, I knew the answer right away! For me, the book that I read because I discovered it on another blog (or should I say blogs) was THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins. It seemed like everyone (and by that, I mean every blogger) was talking about this book. And they weren't only talking about THE HUNGER GAMES, but they were raving about it. I really had no choice but to read it!
Boy am I glad I "listened" to all these fabulous bloggers. I absolutely loved the book -- you can read my review here. I would like to give credit to a blog where I first learned about THE HUNGER GAMES, but I think you'll agree that that's next to impossible! There are far too many awesome reviews of this book in the blogosphere.
I have always read a lot of books and have paid attention to reviews of all types, but I would have to say that the biggest difference in my reading habits since I started blogging is that I now read more Young Adult books. I have really enjoyed YA in the past year and a half or so; and it's because of book bloggers that I discovered this genre. So I consider myself lucky to have not only discovered THE HUNGER GAMES as a result of book bloggers, but also to have discovered an entirely new-to-me genre.
Note: Thanks to book bloggers I have discovered hundreds of fantastic-looking books in the past year! Not only do I have to give you credit for your great (and convincing) reviews, but I also have to share that you are to blame for a little tension in my house. It's because of you that so many new books keep coming into my home -- more books than we actually have room for!
