Book Blogger Appreciation : Day 3

Welcome to Book Blogger Appreciation Week Day 3!

Today's treasure: Unexpected Treasures.

For this treasure, I share with you a book or genre I tried due to the influence of another blogger.

This one is really hard for me, as there are SO many books I have read over the past year based on recommendations from tons of different bloggers.

I think for today, though, I am going to have to go with a book that I read only recently: Soulless by Gail Carriger. I absolutely ADORED this book (I haven't posted my review for it yet, but it's written, and it's coming soon), and I don't think I would have ever even thought about it had it not been for bloggers.

It's hard to pinpoint just one blogger, though, that recommended this book. Fabulous reviews for it started showing up in so many blogs that I just had to find out what it was about for myself.

I think, though, that it was vvb32 Reads that finally pushed me over the edge. Velvet blogs regularly about steampunk, which seemed like such an exciting genre to me. And Soulless just kept showing up in her blog. Finally, I needed to see what this steampunk was all about, and I decided that Soulless would be my introduction. So, thanks vvb32 reads for pushing me over the edge and turning me on to such a fabulous book!

Look out for my review soon, and if you haven't checked out Velvet's blog, what are you waiting for?!?

And now I'm dying to hear what you tried!

Like you I've read SO many books because of bloggers--a huge long list of them! And when bloggers are reading so many of the same books it's hard to pinpoint who to thank--but that's what's so great about bloggers!

I've read about so many wonderful books through my blogger bodies that my wish list is now almost as big as my tbr mountain.
Like you, I've also heard many good things about this book so I'm looking forward to reading what you thought of it.

I have Gail Carriger's first two books based souly on blogger recommendations. I heard through the grapevine that I should definitely have book 2 ready to go as soon as I start book 1.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it. I have a pretty good feeling I'll be liking it to. I can't wait to read your upcoming review =)
