Top Ten Books That Came Recommended

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week is Top Ten Tuesday Rewind where we get to pick a past topic that we either missed or just really want to do again! I chose to do my top ten books that I read due to someone's recommendation. So here's my top ten once again in no particular order!

Team Hope by Susan May Warren-I read this series on my sister Katie's recommendation and I LOVED it! It is still one of my absolute favorite series and Susan May Warren fast became my all time favorite author!

A Tailor-Made Bride by Karen Witemeyer-I had seen this book around, thought it sounded good, and planned on reading it someday, but what made me actually buy it and read it was the fact that my best friend absolutely loved it and told me I would too. I did, and I have loved all of Karen Witemeyer's other books!

All the Tea in China by Jane Orcutt-I read the plot of this one and thought it sounded good but it was written in first person which I refused to read back then (I know, silly me!). Katie swore I would like it and semi-blackmailed me into reading it. I loved it!

The Doctor's Lady by Jody Hedlund-I read Unending Devotion by this author and absolutely loved it. And the whole time I was reading it I kept hearing from people who had read TDL saying how amazing it was, so I knew I had to read it and boy am I glad I did!

When the Smoke Clears by Lynette Eason-I saw a lot of rave reviews for this book but what made me actually purchase it was how much Melanie (Christian Bookshelf Reviews) had loved it. We share a lot of the same opinions on books and when she was singing it's praises I knew I had to read it!

Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren-Anyone who hangs around this blog at all knows that I am a HUGE River of Time fan, but I was actually kind of wary about reading a time travel book and might not have decided to read it if it wasn't for Katie!

Hollywood Nobody by Lisa Samson-I don't remember my intial thoughts about this book I just remember that Katie said I should read it so I did and I absolutely loved it!

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins-Not my normal genre but due to all the hype (and the fact that I wanted to read it before I saw the movie) I checked with Christian bloggers I trusted (like Melanie) who had read it to make sure it was a clean read. And then I proceeded to read and love it!

Julie Lessman books-I have been wanting to read these for awhile and so many people telling me I should. So this week I finally started the first book and so far I'm loving it!

A Proper Pursuit and Hidden Places by Lynn Austin-These were also recommendations from my best friend and I loved them and the other Lynn Austin book I read!

I need to read the Hunger Games trilogy. I liked the movie a lot. Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren sounds really good. A couple blogger friends recommend it to me. I def. should look them up. ;)

I'm finally joining the Julie Lessman craze this week too, Abby!

The Hunger Games trilogy is good. It gets one thinking.

The Hunger Games are pretty good. The second one is my favorite and I'm really looking forward to read River of Time :)

TTT @thedailyprophecy.

I loved "All the Tea in China"! So sad that the author wasn't able to write more books :(


Abbi Hart said...

Tanya, Mel, and Cindy-Yeah the Hunger Games are awesome!
Nina-The River of Time Series is epic-definitely get your hands on it!
Rosie-Hope you are enjoying them, glad to know I'm not the only latecomer!
Diane-Glad to help!
Coletta-Yeah that was a great book and it was so depressing how she died before being able to write more!
