Top Ten Tuesday

I know, I've really been getting on the book-meme train here. I'm going to try out Top Ten Tuesdays from The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's top ten is in honor of Book Blogger Appreciation week:

Top Ten Books I Read Because of Another Blogger

My Answer:

I think quite a lot of books I've read or want to read are because of other bloggers, but I'm not as good at keeping track of where these recommendations come from. Some aren't necessarily from the blogger I was reading, but from someone else in the Comments section or a link I followed. So, I'm only listing books I definitely know I read because of another blogger.

1. The Believers by Zoe Heller

I know I read this because of the review I read at a Commonplace Blog.

2. A Clash of Kings and A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin

I continued reading A Song of Ice and Fire after Biblibio assured me it gets better. While I found the style similar, it was enjoyable to get to know the characters better.

3. Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell

I read about Cranford on Wuthering Expectations and I am very glad I did. I was very pleased and more Gaskell is definitely on my list.

4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I know I heard about The Hunger Games on a blog, but I can't remember where I heard about it first. I feel like all the YA blogs were buzzing about it around the time Mockingjay came out.

5. American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld

I did know about this book before, but I definitely decided to read it sooner rather than later after I read Litlove's review.

That's my half of a Top Ten Tuesday!

I need to do a list like this- it would probably be very illuminating for me at least to go through this year's reads and see what I find.
