Recent Book Recommendations (Top Ten Tuesday #7)

Girl Reading Book

One of the ways that I use Goodreads for blogging is that I add a comment with the URL of the review that made me want to read a book. Looking back at the last 10 books I read based on other bloggers’ reviews, I see that some worked and some didn’t.

Book recommendations that worked for me

All 4 of these books ended up being 4-star reads for me. Yay!

Book recommendations that worked: Maybe in Another Life, Hello?, The Mapmaker's Children, The Museum of Heartbreak

Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid (recommended by Bookmark Lit)

Hello? by Liza Wiemer (recommended by Lost in Literature)

The Mapmaker’s Children by Sarah McCoy (recommended by All the Books I Haven’t Read)

The Museum of Heartbreak by Meg Leder (recommended by The Book Nut)

Book recommendations that didn’t work for me

These 6 books were 3-star reads, which isn’t bad, but isn’t really great either.

    1. Thanks. Yeah, I was disappointed by The Nightingale too. I think it may have been the narrator. I just didn’t feel very attached to the characters. 🙁

    1. You’re welcome. Thanks for stopping by. I agree! I read the review of The Museum of Heartbreak because of the cover and the clever name. It’s a cute book.

    1. Haha. No. I had it out from the library as my next audiobook, but because The Nightingale didn’t work for me, I decided to return it. I need some distance, and then I can read another WWII book. I get burnt out on that subject very quickly. I really want to read Code Name Verity though. I keep hearing great things!
