This Top Ten Tuesday was almost as difficult to compose as last week’s (which I ended up changing entirely), mostly because I can only think of three books I was ever “forced” to read. They were literary classics I had to read for grade school and in no way reflect my tastes as a reader. For the people that like that genre, I’m sure they were outstanding books, so I’d rather not spend a post ranting about them just because they are outside my wheelhouse.
While I am constantly influenced by other readers, I never feel coerced into picking anything up that doesn’t interest me – especially when there are hundreds of books in my TBR that I’m just dying to read. So where does that leave us this week?
I decided to feature the books I added to my reading list solely based on stellar reviews posted by my fellow bloggers:
Top Ten Books Other Bloggers Convinced Me to Read!
Not all the books on the list were unanimously loved, but all of them had enough great positive feedback to convince me to check them out!
You will note that most of these were featured in my Ten Books at the Top of My Fall 2013 Reading List – and they were there for a reason. Thank you, awesome book bloggers for your thoughtful reviews – this list would not be possible without you!
