Found Books

BBAW_Celebrate_Books_09

Today’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week topic is about the books we discovered through a book blog.  Here are the some books since the last BBAW that I’ve found through the help of Book Blogs:

  • That Went Well by Terrell Harris Dougan through At Home With Books.  The review was so catchy I couldn’t help but want to read this book.
  • Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford through multiple blogs.  This is one instance where power of persuasion worked.  The cover was pleasant but what really got my attention was my exposure to it.  On multiple blogs I saw this cover.  In fact, one blog (I’m sorry, I don’t remember which one) compared the ARC and retail covers.  Somehow, I managed to be exposed to multiple blogs without learning any spoilers about the characters and plot.
  • Sweetsmoke by David Fuller through Caribous Mom.  It’s the adjectives that got to me… gripping, complex and memorable are not often used in book reviews.

What books have you found through a book blog?
